Circe Studios X Luna Ray Jewellery.

Some amazing gifts for your loved one or yourself!

What’s even better is if said gift is Irish designed and made. I have found two gems that would make amazing gifts or a gift for yourself.

Funky earth first candle brand Circe Studios, and sustainable accessories brand, Luna Ray Jewellery, have teamed up this Valentine’s Day to create a gorgeous gift box consisting of sustainably crafted, handmade products, produced with love.

Having met over a year ago on Instagram of all places, these two Irish business women became fast friends and now, Lauren Tracey of Circe Studios and Lorna Rumley of Luna Ray Jewellery have combined forces this Valentine’s Day to spread a little love and introduce their customers to each other's hand made, eco-friendly products.

“The Circe Studios x Luna Ray Jewellery gift boxes are a limited edition pairing of two exclusive pieces, designed with the intention of sharing and embracing love,” Rumley explained.

“Whether you pick up a gift box for yourself, a friend or someone special, they’re sure to put a smile on the face of whoever the lucky recipient is. At Circe Studios, we’re all about self-love, so I can’t think of anything better than being your own Valentine and treating yourself to this candle and earring combo,” said Tracey.

Each gift box contains a hand painted, rose coloured Aphrodite candle from Irish candle brand Circe Studios, symbolising self love, urging you to treasure your uniqueness above all else and a pair of textured, two-tone ruby red heart shaped earrings by Irish brand Luna Ray Jewellery.

Each pair of earrings is made using hand mixed clay and 24k gold plated stainless steel. Created with you in mind, to make you feel beautiful and to be worn with love.

Another really thoughtful gift that you can give is a journal and fellow Bandonian Sean Kennedy has created the beautiful Sixty Second Journal.

The Sixty Second Journal is fast to complete, easy to use and is your companion to a happier, healthier and more present self.

The journal itself is a guided journaling book and the primary goal of the book is to provide simple tools that can promote metal health in a positive way, allow us to be more mindful, be more productive, be happier and also to give you a window of time every day to go back to basics (pen and paper) and hopefully be more present in the moment.

I have started using the journal myself and it quite literally takes a minute in the morning and in the evening and has been fantastic to jot down a few things from the day to focus myself.

I’m always rushing from pillar to post and I am enjoying taking this little bit of time out of my day for some reflection.

The book also includes monthly goal setting, detailed guides and examples on how to complete each section along with examples and tips as well as over 180 inspirational quotes including one from Sean’s own fabulous Nana B, Brenda Mehigan.

What’s more the journal is shipped with minimal packaging and using only materials that can be reused or recycled. The journal features beautiful illustrations from Megan Clancy and the cloth covering and gold foiling combine to give a luxury feel to the book making it a wonderful addition to your bedside table.
