The German incense smoker is one of the many handmade wooden crafts to come from the Erzgebirge region of Germany. It makes the perfect gift for a loved one or to freshen up your home with the smell of incense. Choose from over 300 handcrafted wooden figurines like our famous Christmas motifs of Santa, angels and snowmen, German pastimes and traditions, hobbies like gardening and skiing, professions, cute gnomes, colourful animals and more. Incense smokers started in the Erzgebirge region of Germany in the 1600s as a way to make your home smell good around the holidays and to ward off evil spirits. Now they are found in Christmas markets all over Europe and the UK. Take a look at our diverse range of German incense smokers below.
Incense smokers are a fun and affordable gift for anyone who loves figurines or burning incense. They also fit perfectly inside a stocking if you want to give your family an interesting stocking stuffer. Pair your Erzgebirge incense smokers with our Crottendorfer incense cones for an all-natural way to tickle your nose and bring joy to the whole family. Incense smokers evolved to be made with two parts — the base and the figurine that is hollowed out inside. To use your incense smoker, remove the top portion and place an incense cone at the bottom of the figurine in the base. Light the incense until it starts to smoke. Replace the top part of the figurine over the cone, and the smoke will come out in various places of the figurine, depending on the smoker you purchased. Every smoker is unique and uses the same craftsmanship known in the Erzgebirge region.
