Well we’re not out of the woods yet with Covid so it looks like we’re in for the long haul. So, thinking positively, we may as well get comfortable, warm and cosy as we’ll all be spending a lot more time at home…

Getting a daily dose of fresh air is essential now that we are more or less housebound again. Even a 10 minute stroll makes you feel so much better, especially if you are fortunate enough to be able to walk on the beach, in the countryside or a park. At the time of writing, the temperatures are pretty low and so gloves and hats are pretty much essential.
These lambswool blend gloves are gorgeously soft to the touch and also rather snazzy with their contrasting leather trim. The fingertips feature touch screen sensitivity so you can keep them on when you want to use your mobile. Available in four colours. Aspiga £35. MORE INFO
