Finding a gift that you can then dish out to all your friends on various life occasions is the life hack that no one told me about.
At the time I was on the hunt for a birthday gift for a friend and with the party the next day, I was under pressure to make use of my Amazon Prime membership and shop the site as quickly as possible.
I was first drawn to the candle because of it's mega on-trend design, the fact that it looked like something from a high-end interiors boutique and the sound of the scent - the fact it was created from natural wax was just a plus.
But when my friend unwrapped it the following day it received a better response than I could have imagined.
"You shouldn't have," my grateful friend squealed. "So naughty that you spent this much."
Not wanting to brag directly to her about my gift-giving skills, I asked another of our friends at the dinner how much she thought the candle cost.
"£65," was her answer.
£65! A whole £50 more than I had actually paid.
That evening I went back onto Amazon and ordered six more - saving myself gift-hunting time in the future, money and angst.
I'm now on my second batch - having given the first lot to friends, family members and our new next door neighbour who was touched by our "generosity."
Plus, though I don't actually own one myself, I've been assured by several sources that it smells delicious.
Initially I felt a bit guilty that I was pulling the present-giving wool over my friends eyes, but then I thought: they're happy, I'm happy and their bookshelves, mantlepieces and bedside tables look - and smell - all the better for it.
Now I buy this gorgeous little candle with pride - safe in the knowledge that everyone is a winner here.
