Birthday present: Diptyque Candle or White Company PJs

My friend's birthday and this is my shortlist. If I buy PJ's, should I buy XS, S or M. I guess my friend is a size 10, maybe 12, so I don't want to offend by overestimating!

I'd far rather have PJs than a candle. WC come up big, so a small will be plenty big enough and have room for evening biscuit eating too.

I say the candle. I LOVE getting Diptyque candles

Love my candle. Lasted for ages. Really special treat. Although might feel just as happy with special pjs. You know either would be great. Sorry no help here. Just hoping you are my friend!

White Company candles are even better! I have white lavendar and it is the most gorgeous smell. Better than Diptyque!

Thanks for the help. I received a 15% off email from the White Co so am edging towards that.

I would go for the candle everytime but that said I dont wear pajamas . I like their white lavender, blanc or rose candles .

Meant to add Diptyque candles are lovely too .

You seem like a lovely friend. Can I adopt you please? (Mine's a candle because I'm XL.)

I am a big fan of Diptyque candles, and I can make them last for ages - I only burn them for about 2 hours a night.

I have a pair of lovely White Co pjs that I got at Christmas. Be warned - they come up huge. I had to swap them for an 8 (normally a 12!)

Just checked the label.... XS not 8.

Thank you. I think I will go with PJs not least as i because the sizing will flatter. It is lovely when you fit in a Small when normally a Medium.
