It’s official. NSW has been in lockdown for 13 weeks now! Crazy to think we’ve been stuck at home listening to our partner’s WFH antics for this long.

Needless to say, being in close quarters with your partner and ONLY your partner for an extended amount of time can really test the relationship. It’s important to acknowledge you are both in this together, for better or worse (worse being when they leave their dishes in the sink after you’ve told them not to at least 10 TIMES!!) Anyways...

I’ve gathered the team at G&H HQ to take some time out and plan a special date with their significant other. What better way to spice up not only lockdown but also your relationship than organising a lockdown date!

Pencil it in to your calendar to give both you and your partner something to look forward to, and truly show each other just how lucky you are to have one another 😆

Paint & Sip

Get those creative juices flowing with the ‘Paint & Sip’ Date! Buyer - Taryn and her beau Andy prepared their very own paint and sip session at home. 🖌🎨

While we may not have the next Picasso on our hands, it’s a fun and creative way to feel intimate with your partner and really take notice of everything you love about them.

This lockdown activity is guaranteed to have you both laughing! 👩‍🎨 🧑‍🎨

Bike Riding Adventure

Get out and GET ACTIVE! 🚲 The bike riding date is the perfect way to get you and your partner out and about, releasing those positive endorphins. Our Marketing Coordinator, Maddie and her boyfriend Trent went out for a gorgeous sunset bike ride. 😍

Our 1 hour per day of outdoor exercise is the perfect time to beat the cabin fever whilst also spending time enjoying the little things with your partner.

Take a bottle of wine and some glasses to enjoy a drink in the park for some extra romance on this date! 🍾
