Staycation Essentials!

Yipee! The sun has come back and we are excited to make the most of it. Now we don’t have to act like hermits and we can actually see other people again, we thought we would make sure that we have all the ingredients we need for a socially distanced get together or even a “staycation”. While it’s hotter than Ibiza in good old Blighty, who needs a foreign holiday when we can have fun right here.

 

LOUNGERS

Stylish? Check. Comfy? Check. Does it rock? Check. All boxes are ticked with this fab lounger. Simply rock backwards and forwards while listening to the sound of waves….on your headphones!
