Make a Den
Adults can make dens to. In our opinion the older you get, the better it is. Release your inner child and feel the nostalgia as you cosy up under the covers. Whether you fancy a light-hearted lunch break or an all-day movie marathon. Building a den is the perfect way of spending some quality time, relieving the stress and eating all the snacks.

Get those candles lit and essential oils out. Ideal for reconnecting and unwinding after a tough week working from home. Create a zen zone and feel the relaxation as you and your partner prepare to pamper each other. With our retreats and romantic getaways put on pause, come together and sink into the spa experience in the comfort of your own home. Free treatments? What’s not to love.
Cocktail tasting
Let your hair down and loosen up this lockdown. Get giggly and giddy with your partner in crime as you savour the flavour of your favourite cocktails. Feel free to switch it up with non-alcoholic mocktails, gin or a tipple of your choice. Don’t forget to prepare the paracetamol, this may leave you both with a sore head.

Try this refreshing take on the classic Caprioska:

You will need

1 or 2 measures of Vodka
2 Limes
Teaspoon of brown sugar
Fanta Lemon

    Cut and squeeze the lime with brown sugar, releasing as much of the juice as you can. Add crushed ice to fill the glass and pour over your measure of vodka.

    Games night

    For classic date night fun. Crack out the board games and challenge your partner as you both feel the nostalgia of this timeless suggestion.

All we can say is good luck trying to spin that wheel.
