Time is our least renewable resource, making it exceptionally precious.

By the time festive season reaches its crescendo and it’s time to exchange gifts, it’s likely there’ll be some people in your life who need nothing more than some self-care, some ‘me’ time and a little calm amidst all the chaos.

Meaghers Pharmacy, as always, have some gift ideas for that exact person – whether it’s you or someone you know who needs some encouragement to take a minute to breathe.

These ideas work individually, but would also make a lovely home-made hamper when put together, if you really want to treat yourself or someone close to you.

Set the scene

Serenity Revive Scented Candle, €21

Illuminate that path to calmness with an exquisite Serenity Candle. Not only does it emanate an incredible fragrance, but its soothing ombre colours, earthy wooden lid and elegant gift box make it the perfect present. This candle is more than just a source of light; it's a symbol of tranquillity.

Sweet dreams

This Works ‘With Sleep Comes Beauty’ set, €68

The ‘With Sleep Comes Beauty’ set from This Works is the epitome of creating a night dedicated to self-care, culminating in a restful night's sleep.

Immerse yourself in a calming environment by lighting the full-size Deep Sleep candle, then indulge in a long bath with the shower gel and bath soak – all in one set.

Enriched with coconut oil, the shower gel nourishes your skin, while the ambient scent of the candle relaxes your mind. Complete your ritual with a spritz of the pillow spray on your bedding for a truly blissful night. Every element is carefully crafted to enhance your well-being.

Scents to please
