Boozy Tea From Lifestyle Notion
For your glorious adult lives at home, the geniuses at Lifestyle Notion have created Alcohol Tea Bombs. Basically, instead of pouring hot water over these tea bags, you pour your favourite spirit instead and in ten minutes, you’ll have yourself a super-cocktail. There are six different flavours including the “Don’t Apple-ogise” bursting with apple, cinnamon and orange and is ideal for light or dark spirits, or you could pair a red wine or spiced rum with the “Don Draper”, packed with cinnamon, star anise, cloves and orange peel flavours.
Cheese, Wine And Charcuterie From Handpicked Wines
Big news people, Handpicked Wines has just expanded its delivery radius to express deliver cheese, charcuterie and wine to a 25km radius around the cellar door. That means, should you be home-bound, you can quite literally send yourself a wine and cheese box made up of your choice of vino and your choice of two kinds of cheese (we highly suggest the creamy Milawa brie and semi-hard Mahon Curado). You’ll also get quince paste, crackers, a twin pack of Govino picnic glasses and a set of wooden cutlery. You can scope out the entire cheese and wine line-up here.
Indoor Plants From PlantGirl

PlantGirl delivers across Sydney from Monday through Friday, and same-day delivery is possible with orders before 11am (for those times you need to light up someone’s day on short notice, because sending your colleagues succulents for their WFH desk is absolutely a good idea).
