Self care gifts for isolation
2020 isn’t turning out how any of us expected. So instead of getting stressed and frustrated we’re all trying to be kind to ourselves and the ones we love, with a little bit of self care. Everyone does self care differently, but with the current situation many of us are trying to find new ways to relieve stress. Whether you’ve got plenty of free time or 10 minutes to relax, we’ve got plenty of self care gifts for yourself, or someone who deserves a little pick-me-up.
Indulge your sweet tooth
Did someone mention chocolate? We all need a bit of a sugar rush right now to give us a boost. If you’ve got a family or chocoholics our personalised Cadbury family hamper is the perfect way to please everyone. It includes everything you’ll need, from bars of dairy milk, milk tray, heroes, oreo biscuits and more. If you’re still on the hunt for toilet roll, you don’t need to worry, we’ve found it. But it’s even better, it’s made of chocolate! Our choc on choc double loo roll is made of Belgian white and milk chocolate and is a funny gift to lift someone’s spirits in isolation. If they’re more of a sweets person, our personalised letterbox sweets collection is the way to their heart. It includes five bags of sweets including prosecco bon bons, kola cubes, strawberry hearts and more.
If you know a key worker, why not tell them how thankful you are with our choc on choc hero box? £1 from every sale is donated to charity to support NHS workers, and they’ll get four delicious milk chocolate squares dusted with edible gold dust. Isolation is difficult enough without depriving yourself, so pop the kettle on, put your feet up and indulge in these sweet treats!
Have a pamper
Feeling good about yourself is the best way to give you a mood booster. If you’re missing your hair and nail salon, there’s nothing stopping you from having an at home DIY session and feeling brand new again. Our penny post letterbox pamper hamper is the perfect gift to send to someone who’s not feeling like themselves. It includes goodies to eat whilst you sit back with a cup of camomile tea and do some nail maintenance. If you need some more intense nail care, our Oh K! Mini mani kit is an adorable gift that has everything you’ll keep your nails cute until lockdown is over.
Just because you’re staying in doesn’t mean you don’t have to moisturise. Our personalised vaseline is available in four tin colours and is great to keep on their desk in the home office, or to rub on dry patches after all that hand washing. If you’re in need of a complete destress, why not take a bath? But forget the bubble bath that’s been lurking in the bathroom, make it a real treat with this folklore bath oils gift set. It comes with three beautiful bath oils that are scented with bergamot & ylang ylang, sandalwood & jasmine and peony & rose.
A reason to smile
We all need to brighten our days in lockdown however we can. So whether you want to cheer yourself up or someone you’re missing, a treat just because they deserve it, is a lovely way to show you care.
You can share the love with our compliment postcard book! It includes 12 postcards bound in a neon pink book, including lovely messages including ‘first of all, you’re really pretty’ and ‘you are gold, baby. Solid gold’. They can pass on the compliments to someone who needs a bit of a pick-me-up or keep them for themselves. If they need a bit of motivation, our personalised scratch and reveal motivational quotes print is sure to do the trick. The floral design has room for 12 scratch and reveal quotes or messages and a name of your choice. It’s a lovely way to give them a bit of motivation over 12 days, or they can open whenever they feel a bit down, to make them smile. Let them know you’re thinking of them with a delicious treat - our personalised handmade truffles. It includes 16 luxury handmade truffles in a sunny yellow box that reads ‘Think happy’ and a message of your choice. What a treat for someone who needs a pick-me-up!
Work up a sweat
We all know doing a bit of exercise will make us feel good, but having the motivation is another thing. So if you know someone who has been taking the opportunity to work on their fitness regime during lockdown, they may appreciate some new equipment. If they wanna stay on track with their food and exercise choices, this personalised planner is super handy. It has sections for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, exercise and weight loss, so you can fill it in and stick to your plans and reach your goals. All you have to do is add a message to the top of the whiteboard. Before you get started you have to make sure you’re hydrated too, so make sure you’ve got our personalised water bottle . Available in 8 colours, it can be etched with any name of your choice. It’s also double walled, which can keep hot temperatures hot for up to 12 hours, and cold temperatures cold for up to 24 hours. After you’re properly hydrated it’s time to get stretching on our personalised grey yoga mat. It doesn’t matter if yoga isn’t your thing, this mat is perfect for weights, stretches and high intensity interval training. It can be printed with initials of your choice too, so your lockdown buddy knows it’s yours. The next step is to get moving and what better way than with our get fit cards? They include 100 exercises you can do without any equipment from home. Perfect!
Get cosy and relax
We’re all feeling the pressure of lockdown and feeling stressed about stuff we should be doing, instead of what we can do. But we all need to give ourselves a break, kick back and relax. Our personalised blanket is the perfect addition to a cosy evening in, or afternoon nap during quarantine. Made from super soft recycled wool, it comes in blue or red and can be personalised with initials and a message. Anyone up for a nap? If you want to keep someone cosy and tell them you care, our personalised socks are a winner! They come in three colours and can be personalised with any message. It’s a lovely way to tell them you’re thinking of them. Being relaxed is all about a state of mind so set the scene by lighting a personalised candle. This sweet smelling vanilla candle features a lovely green leaf design and can be printed with a name and message. It’s the perfect way to make any room in your home a relaxing atmosphere. Don’t forget to keep your feet warm too, we love these cozy microwavable slipper boots. With a gentle scent of lavender, they can be heated in the microwave and are the perfect way to be extra cosy on a night in.
Don’t forget the card
Just a little note to say how much you care can make them feel like you’ve wrapped them in a hug from afar. That’s what this personalised card is for, it’s basically a paper hug! It’s the perfect card to send to someone struggling with life in lockdown, all you have to do is add a name of your choice to the message ‘this card is a hug!’. If they need a reminder of how special they are, there’s no better way to tell them just how amazing they are, with our personalised card. The bright green design features colourful stars and the words ‘You’re amazing’. It’s a definite pick-me-up for someone who needs a boost. If you just want to send love for no reason at all, this personalised card is ideal. The gold heart design also features a name of your choice and the message ‘so much love for you’. You can send to someone you’re missing or someone who needs a thoughtful message to let them know you care. Know key workers that are still working? Show them much you appreciate them with a heartfelt note in a personalised card. The light blue card features a tiny star design and can be printed with a message, alongside the words ‘Super stars’. Go on, tell them they’re simply the best!
