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. Create your own hamper and fill it with pain au chocolat, fresh fruit and a loaf of sourdough bread and orange juice – Champagne optional!
Indulge in some self-care together and create an at home spa experience. Think candles, massages and essential oils to leave you fully relaxed. Create a soothing atmosphere in your home with an ESPA diffuser.
