Set the mood with your own signature-scented candles handcrafted at Mill Valley Candleworks, a bright light in the Ferry Building Marketplace. Pick your own fragrance without bending your bank account. Candles made with essential oils and botanical essences average about $8.50. And what a treat for the nostrils: eucalyptus, for instance, might remind you of treks through the city. The Illuminated Heart collection is also a constant reminder of the gift of giving. Bonus: One dollar from the profits of every sale is contributed to Light a Heart, a nonprofit organization supporting children and young adults with autism and epilepsy.
