Top 5 Gifts to Cheer up the Last of Lockdown



February 2021 - Ecommerce, Feature, Our Friends



The start of 2021 brought most of us a new lockdown and the camaraderie ‘blitz-spirit’ of the first lockdown has been well and truly dampened. Lockdown 3.0 is another sequel no one wanted.  The end is now in sight – hurrah! But with our loved ones still stuck at home, we looked no further than our amazing client products to cheer them up. From budget to blowout, whether it’s for a Mother’s Day treat or just because, here’s our pick of the best.

1.Best for home schoolers

With real school on the cards again, but still nowhere to go at the weekends, we thought we’d reward our small people with a little treat. It was so hard to pick just one thing from the amazing gaming, fashion, stationery and science toys the Science Museum sells. They even have kid-favourite brand Hype exclusive designs and something for every budget from pocket money up. But in the end, we voted the Cryptex as one of the coolest toys we haven’t seen elsewhere. Educate, bribe or reward your little darlings with this code breaking toy that doubles as learning and fun. You could even hide some snack-time sweets inside, or the wi-fi password (depending on the age!)  Shop here.

2.Best for Mother’s Day*

Does your mum, gran or mum-friend dream of getting away and truly relaxing? This gift idea gives them something luxurious to look forward to.  We highly recommend an Exclusive Collection stay or experience voucher from SK Chase. Our top pick would be a cookery day for two at Season, the cookery school at Lainston House.  With everything from G&T afternoon teas to overnight spa breaks – you’ll find something luxury to suit every budget. Best of all, the vouchers last for two years, so you’ll be free to use them when you’re ready.  Shop here.

*For mothers of humans, pets or anything else.

3.Best for little kids

For your littlest people, the best gift has got to be a gorgeous cardboard playhouse from Binky Box. With big sticker options to decorate the house with little mess or fuss, this is an easy win. These modern day ‘wendy houses’ are made from recycled cardboard and can be painted, glued or coloured over and over. Hours of happy play – and peace! Shop here.

4.Best for big kids

Turn your house into a zoo complete with sleek leopards, spiky dinosaurs and colourful unicorns. A classic long-life gift for kids is a Tell Tail. The wearable tails go with any outfit and instantly get your kids up and moving, with realistic wagging all-round the house. Some of them are downright gorgeous (we’ve got our eye on the long-furred lemurs). P.S; they do adult sizes too. Just saying….Shop here.

5.Best for furry friends

If you’ve got a loyal dog in your life, chances are they’re enjoying more of your company at home right now, and plenty of walkies. But for those moments when you can’t get away from a video call, we think this fab indoor ball is a winner. It won’t damage your walls but is guaranteed to please your ball crazy mutt and when you do get outside, it’s just as much fun out as in.  Shop here.
