Spreading Joy During Lockdown
Spreading joy is not only a beautiful gesture, but also a focus for so many of us at the moment. For the fourth and final post in our Living in Lockdown series we’re sharing ways you can help spread joy amongst those you know and love.
Putting a smile on someone’s face is just the best feeling, which was why we created our ‘Happiness is…’ range within the Rainbow Collection. Remembering the good times, focusing on the little things and spreading joy are all so important right now and this range of gifts is sure to bring happiness and joy to those who receive them.
The pace of life suddenly became a lot slower back in March 2020 and although that may have taken some adjusting to, many of us are now appreciating the importance of taking some ‘me time’. Our Personalised ‘Happiness is…’ Deluxe Pamper Kit is for the person you know loves to pamper, needs to take some important ‘me time’ or simply appreciates indulgent, luxurious natural products.
Nestled inside the personalised tin you’ll find a Fig and Wild Pear Scented Candle, Rose Bath Bomb, Nathalie Bond Organic Natural Bath Salts, Vanilla Scented Soap and Nathalie Bond Organic Rose Lip Balm; truly everything that is needed to relax during what can be a stressful or worrying time for many.
The muted tones, heart centred rainbow and bespoke messages make the gifts within this collection suitable for all manner of occasions; from spreading joy now to birthdays, baby showers and other special events.
The Happy Message Mug can be personalised with the recipient’s name, a message and who the gift is coming from. The fact that you can add your own message to the rainbow is such a special touch and a subtle reminder of why the lucky recipient is appreciated so much.
Putting together care packages or treat boxes has always been a popular way to spread joy, but perhaps even more so since lockdown began.
