Life as we know it has changed drastically over the past couple of weeks due to the coronavirus pandemic and with everyone doing their part to ensure loved ones stay safe and healthy and our NHS is protected, we know it’s not always easy or simple to get hold of those essential items.
We also know that many people are making personal sacrifices during this time, forgoing birthdays, anniversary celebrations, weddings, baby showers and many other important events.

- Handmade Hamper
Buy, borrow or repurpose a crate or a giftbox and pack it with your loved one’s favourite things. How about a pamper themed hamper with bath salts, a handmade candle, a new book and some skincare and facemasks – click here for some great DIY options. Stick with the theme of self-indulgence and top if off with some homemade chocolate truffles. These 3 ingredients truffles from BBC Good Food look delicious and super easy!
Get crafty and start that art project you’ve been meaning to try, get your kids involved and include some paintings and handmade cards – we’ve found some fun projects here. Pop in some handpicked flowers from the garden, daffodils, tulips and camellia are all in bloom right now. Dig out those old photographs from the back of the cupboard and put together a photo album or even a scrap book filled with memories.
- Sweet Treats
There’s an abundance of goodies you can make at home, the challenge is not to keep them all for yourself. Why not try your hand at some homemade jam or chutney, which would go perfectly with these rosemary crackers, made with store cupboard essentials.
There’s also lots of great kid friendly baking projects that you can enjoy together. Keep it simple with some chocolate chip muffins or a classic fruit loaf. Try something a little more adventurous – this pistachio and raspberry cake looks like a great bake, or whip up some gooey chocolate brownies for the chocolate lover in your life.
