Host an indoor picnic

You may not be able to leave your house, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be creative. Why not enjoy an indoor picnic? Find a giant blanket to sprawl out on, add cushions for comfort and some greenery to bring the outside in. To save you making the hamper, we recommend Pique’s Ultimate Brunch which includes blueberry pancakes with maple syrup & berries, mini pain au chocolat, pain au raisins and more!

Create an at-home spa

Indulge in some self-care together and create an at home spa experience. Think candles, massages and essential oils to leave you fully relaxed. We recommend Temple Spa’s award-winning truffle range for the ultimate treat.
