A Cosy Night in with giffgaff

We are living in unprecedented times, I am sure we can all agree to that and for me, I am trying as best I can to keep to my usual routine.  During the week my alarm hasn't been changed, though I might press the snooze button a few more times than I usually would, I go to bed at the same time and whilst I am now working from home, the weekends are still my downtime.  Sunday is still reserved for an hour of 'Me time' be that in a bath of bubbles, or a nap and on a Saturday night, date night is now taking place at home with a film and some snacks, though last weekend it came via a box of amazing products from giffgaff.

Inside my box, I was kindly gifted with some products to make that chilled night in a little more fun and definitely much more bearable than it might have been.  The first item out of the box is the Smartphone projector which is suitable for use with iOS and Android and Windows* compatible smartphones. *version 8 and above.  This device is simply brilliant, whether you are watching some old videos on your phone, have logged into Netflix or Amazon Prime to watch a film.

Naturally, the room you use the projector in needs to be pitch black, your phone brightness needs to be on 100% the self assemble guide is really easy to follow too. Keep an eye on my Instagram to see the projector in action.

Added into my box is also the Marley No Bounds Portable Bluetooth Speaker System, which is not only water-resistant and dustproof, it also features 10 hours of playtime, so if you are ready to do a Star Wars marathon or even Harry Potter, then you don't have to worry about your speaker running out of charge. But if playing something out loud is likely to annoy other members of your household, then also included is an alternative option - the Marley Smile Jamaica in-ear headphones

These headphones have been a bit of a lifeline whilst I am working from home, they mean I can take part in conference calls without having to broadcast it across the house and because they feature noise-isolating technology, I can fully concentrate without getting distracted.  Also,  because these headphones are to all intents and purposes wireless, I am not tripping over cables, they are charged using a USB. Further to that, they work up to 10m away from the connected device, be it your Kindle, iPad or iPhone and the function of being able to answer calls, forward, rewind and pause calls and media is invaluable.

A night in for me is not perfect until the right atmosphere has been created. That means lights down, Himalayan salt lamp switched on and candles lit.  Again, another gift within the box is a giffgaff bespoke candle made by McKinley and Paget and it smells just absolutely wonderful of orange scents.

The candle comes with 30 hours of burn time and it is a brand I am really keen to learn more about because the stories behind each candle are a delight to read.

The final items within my box include a £5 Sim credit so that I can call friends and family, something that is definitely important to be doing at times likes these and a voucher to ensure that we have a really nice meal for two, something I am very much looking forward to using at a later date.

What I absolutely love about this concept is the thoughtfulness that has gone into each box and its theme. Without question it does help to create a great night in, it is slightly different to something we might have ordinarily done to watch a film together and it certainly created a lot of laughs as we tried to get the balance just right so that we could both see and hear what was going on.

What do you do for a cosy night in?
