Treat a loved one to some much needed ‘me time’ this Christmas. From presents that encourage a moment of self-care and reflection, to those that transform their home into a calming oasis –We have the right stress-relieving gift to bring about relaxation.

Mounting work deadlines, social commitments, parenting demands – modern life can be exhausting. Thankfully, the last few years have seen the rise in the importance of self-care, defined as “a conscious act a person takes in order to promote their own physical, mental, and emotional health.”

Self-care takes many forms. It can be as simple as getting enough sleep each night, journalling, or doing a relaxing activity or as involved as booking a holiday you’ve been delaying going on for years. If done regularly and with intent, self-care can manage stress, lower your risk of illness, and increase your energy. 

With Christmas just around the corner, why not give a gift that helps a loved one undertake an act of self-care? Ahead, you’ll find 6 relaxing gifts to help turn their home into a calming oasis – the perfect environment to inspire a little me-time and reflection.
