10 Things to Buy While You’re Stuck (Safe!) at Home

Everyone is getting through lockdown and self-isolation in their own way at the moment. If there’s one thing that is for sure, though, it’s that a little retail therapy never hurt anyone.

Whether it’s a purchasing something to help you pursue an exciting new hobby or gifting yourself something to make life at home a little bit more comfortable, here’s a comprehensive list of all the items it makes absolute sense to buy right now.

Embrace your inner baker.

We’ve all seen those picture-perfect snaps of sourdough bread and perfectly-iced cakes gracing the Instagram feeds of everyone and their mother. Berlinger Haus has the perfect collections to fully kit out your kitchen and get you on track for cooking up a storm during the lockdown. You won’t be missing nights out in a restaurant once you can cook like a pro with a kit from Berlinger Haus, and with high-quality equipment bought at just a fraction of the original price.

Save your wrists from aching.

Now that we’re forced to socialize exclusively online, we’re naturally spending more time on our phones. Save your hands and wrists from the ache of having to hold your phone up for hours and buy yourself a phone tripod so you’re free to gesture and move around as you like, with your loved ones still as close to hand as possible.

While you’re at it, save your eyes too.

Another part of your body that might be suffering from endless hours spent using technology is your eyes. Staring at digital screens all day is becoming an even more omnipresent part of our lives in lockdown. Investing in a good quality screen reader means that your phone can read aloud whatever is on your screen, without you having to stare at it. Even better, it might trick your brain into thinking you’ve got some company if you’re isolating alone!

Revamp your wardrobe.

Even if no one can see you right now, that is no reason to let your sense of style slip. Put your browser time to good use and revitalize your look with some online shopping. These petite jackets from Chico’s are perfect for petite women with a slender figure. It might be hard to choose just one jacket, but with free returns, why not sample a few and see which piece of petite outerwear suits you best?

Treat a friend.

The ones we love can feel further away than usual when we can’t just pick up our jacket and go out to meet them. Show your friends and loved ones that you’re still thinking about them by sending them a little gift in the post, like a gift card to their favorite store or a basket of tasty treats. You might not be able to see them in person but a thoughtful gift goes a long way.

Get creative!

Many smart companies are recognizing that people stuck at home often have more time on their hands now and are looking to occupy themselves. You can find fun subscription boxes that will teach you a new craft each month. Not only do you get to do something fun when you make a new account with one of them, but you’ll also have a cute little knick-knack to decorate your home with.

Bring the outside in.

We might not be able to go outside to the great outdoors right now, but there’s no reason why it can’t come into us. Buy a plant online and have it delivered to your door. It’s something to take care of that will take care of you right back, freshening up your air and lifting your mood.

Blankets and pillows are always a good investment.

Even a well-loved home might start to feel stale and boring after even limited time inside. Rejuvenate your home and make it somewhere you love being by investing in some snug blankets and pillows, so you have somewhere to get comfortable even on the worst days of lockdown.

Why not add a wireless keyboard to the mix, too?

Anyone who says they aren’t spending more time than ever on Netflix during lockdown is a liar. A wireless keyboard is a great piece of kit to have up your sleeve. It helps us stay comfortable and still lets Netflix know that you are in fact still watching. It’s a small recommendation, but one that cannot be underestimated.

Keep track of time with a wall calendar.

It might feel like we are stuck indoors for eternity, but in reality, it will only be for a limited time. We will all get through this and to help get some perspective, invest in a wall calendar that maps out the weeks. This way, you can see time passing and can see the light at the end of the tunnel as lockdown finally draws to a close.
