Many of us have had to rethink our birthday festivities in quarantine, and celebrities are no exception. Blake Lively turned 33 this week and opted to spend the day at home with her husband, Ryan Reynolds, eating homemade cake and having a DIY spa day (as documented on her Instagram). She also showed off some of her gifts, including one luxurious flower-candle combo that we can’t stop thinking about—the High Camp Vine & Bloom box.

The box comes in three sizes and features the brand’s signature wide-wick gardenia-and-palo santo–scented candle, along with a bundle of palo santo smudge sticks and 24 freshly cut gardenias. It’s a little on the pricey side, but if you’ve ever debated what to send your BFF for their birthday, the package hits all the right notes. Consider Lively’s Instagram Story review: “This smells like if heaven delivered on all things promised. All. At. Once.”

If you’d like to gift (or get) florals but your wallet isn’t feeling High Camp’s luxury boxes, try one of these garden-scented candles instead. Diptyque’s best-selling Lily scent will freshen up any space, while Byredo’s Burning Rose is known to be Jennifer Aniston’s choice. For budget-friendly options, HSN’s Japanese Pagaoda Candle has notes of passion fruit white jasmine petals, and P.F. Candle Co.’s Sandalwood Rose is a cult favorite.
