3 Amazing Home Delivery Treats During Lockdown


Morning guys! So we're about to enter our 5th (?) week in lockdown... Wow, that is simultaneously the fastest and slowest five weeks of my life. Before the sh*t really hit the fan, I decided to come home from uni to isolate with my family. This was definitely a good decision overall but it also means I haven't seen my boyfriend in 6 weeks now - the longest we've ever (obviously) gone without seeing each other. So a couple of weeks ago I decided to send him a little present in the post and after doing some digging I realised there are some great places offering home delivery right now!

1) Patch Plants


If you or anyone you know is a houseplant lover you HAVE to check out patch. They sell and deliver reasonably priced, beautiful houseplants across the whole of the UK. This is actually what I treated my boyfriend to and have to say the service and delivery was impeccable. (Though, do be warned they come in MASSIVE boxes to protect the plants!)

*Edit* Just checked the website and all deliveries outside of London are taking a minimum of 3 weeks so bare that in mind.


2) Pasta Evangelists 


Oh my god. Guys. This is something I haven't tried yet but I'm absolutely dying to... Pasta Evangelists deliver homemade, incredible pasta to your doorstep. How does it work? You choose from their weekly menu which pasta dishes you want and they send all the ingredients (including fresh pasta) to your door, next day! The meals take five minutes to cook and I have it on good authority they are incredible...


3) Letterbox Hampers


Ok if we have any foodies amongst us, there is something for everyone on Letterbox Hampers. Everything from Cheese to Chocolate to Alcohol, trust me, a treat from here is guaranteed to make anyone's week. Tempted to buy one of these for myself actually....

My sister got one of these for her boyfriend and I believe it went down a storm. I mean who wouldn't want to receive some delicious treats in the post!



I think right now with everything going on, a lot of people are feeling a bit down. And that's ok. Even if you're isolated at home and everyone you know is safe and healthy. You shouldn't feel guilty for missing normal life. I'm aware that I'm super lucky to have garden space and to live in a village where I can walk over the hills without seeing anyone... but I still miss my boyfriend and my friends and stupid things like buying an overpriced coffee in Starbucks and sitting in the park. And that's ok. So thanks for reading guys, as always you can follow me on my socials in the sidebar and I will see you on Sunday!

  7. Oo, the letterbox hampers look amazing! I have been craving something crunchy and sweet lately.
    The plants have a happy aura of green to them. I am kind of sad I cannot get any of these deliveries, but I found a bakery near me that offers pick-up so I am jumping into the carpool boat with my friends for some sourdough galettes.

  8. I sent a care package to a few friends last month, so I love this post about treating friends and family. I'll need to get back to it this month. Thanks for the reminder.
