Many teens have probably been in the same predicament as Mike Kittredge was in 1969. He didn't have cash to by his beloved mom a Christmas present, so he handmade a candle by melting crayons. In an act of serendipity, a neighbor saw his creation and asked to purchase it - and Yankee Candles was born. Now, the iconic brand sells delightfully scented candles, wax melts, sprays and home décor. The Yankee Candle flagship store, where kids can dip their own candles and adults can take in the fragrant aroma, is located in Massachusetts. Yankee Candle products can also be purchased online, in one of their 500 retail stores, or in many boutiques throughout the nation.
