5 Best Gift Ideas During Lockdown

These are strange times for everyone and there has never been a better time to show somebody how much you love them. Whilst the high street has closed, online retail has come into its own to provide a huge range of gifting options to brighten someone’s day.

1. Flowers

The perfect gift for all occasions but especially at the minute, flowers never fail to lift the spirits.
Bloom & Wild offer a beautiful selection of letterbox flowers and houseplants starting from £23 with free next-day delivery.

2. Craft Gin

Let’s face it, there’s not much to do other than eat and drink at the minute but with the current restrictions and lack of supermarket delivery slots, getting hold of your favourite tipple can be quite tricky!
Luckily for us, the Craft Gin Club offers a subscription or one-off box including a full-size bottle of craft gin, selected tonics and mixers and a choice of sweet and savoury artisan treats for £40 with free delivery.

3. Afternoon Tea

Afternoon tea is one of the most luxurious treats and there is nowhere better to experience it than at one of Bettys Café Tea Rooms. Whilst you might not be able to recreate the surroundings, you can certainly enjoy a taste of luxury with their Tea & Scones Gift Selection including Bettys Tea Room blend tea bags, Yorkshire tea loaf, scones and strawberry preserve.

This pleasurable pursuit is unfortunately overlooked during our normal fast-paced and frantic lives but at the moment, arts and crafts activities are coming into their own to while-away the hours and soothe our worried minds.
Craftiosity offers the perfect introduction with their craft kits, each one contains all of the necessary components for a complete project. Each kit costs £24.95 with free delivery.
