Friendship act of kindness #1 - Doorstep drop

If you’re lucky to have your bestie live locally, why not deliver a treat to their doorstep. What do they enjoy doing? Think art supplies or cooking ingredients, candles or favourite chocolates, or maybe share an old favourite DVD. For added safety, choose items that can either be wiped with anti-bac or left in quarantine for the recommended time before they are opened.

We all text and email as an instant and easy way to reach out and communicate, but receiving a handwritten note through the letterbox can mean so much more. Why not pen a letter or send a fun postcard. Doormats deserve something more colourful than credit card statements to land on them!
