Best Gifts for Those in Isolation

In these difficult times, social isolation is becoming less and less of a possibility for some, and more of a necessary reality. It is beyond important to take care of yourself and in particular, your mental health while staying home during this time. However you define self-care - whether it be reading, meditation, focussing on your skincare routine or lounging around, make sure your body has also been taken care of by treating yourself to a personalised, comfortable PJ set that makes you feel as beautiful as you are.

A silver lining of working from home is that you get to work in your Pyjamas just like us here at Homebodii! Our styles are designed to be easy transitional pieces that are perfect for those video chats or conference calls!  Our personal favourites are the sustainable Petra collection and the ever so versatile linen range, (the Riviera set in particular is a perfect home/work piece). To complete your PJ work look,  add a piece of beautifully designed jewellery from Frankly My Dear or Romeo & Penelope. All pieces from both designers are handmade, so each piece is one of a kind and completely individual.

Once you’ve been home for a couple days, it’s time to take your eyes off the screen. Unwind with some Love Loco chocolate, a pot of Byron Bay Tea Company’s tea and a book. Our suggestions include Get Your Sh*t Together Journal, Back Chat Beauty, and Gypset Living. All of which can be found in our Pacific Fair Boutique – hopefully a friend can run out and grab one for you.

Keep up your skincare routine – or perhaps even use this time to start a new one! We recommend Go-To’s Hero face oil and Properly Clean facial cleanser. Of course, everyone’s skin is different, so shop for what suits you. If it’s masks you’re after, James Cosmetics is your one-stop-shop. They’ve got something to nourish every part of your face – did you know forehead masks existed?!

Of course spending more time at home, means spending more time in bed (aka your personal oasis). It is so important for sleep quality to have a comfortable, good quality mattress. If you have noticed that yours is getting a little lumpy, or you simply need a change, then we love Koala's award-winning mattresses is a perfect option. They even have bedroom furniture to complement their mattresses to help you spruce up your space.

With so much uncertainty and difficult situations for many, it might be a good idea to document your own isolation process. By tracking your journey, you'll be able to look back at your growth during this time and share the important lessons you learnt from isolation with further generations, whatever they may be. Light a Homebodii candle and get to work writing in a Fox and Fallow journal, available from our Pacific Fair Boutique.

We at Homebodii know this is an uncertain time and we wish you all health and happiness x
