Gotta have it! Covid-friendly handbag accessories.
It's Lockdown day 763784 and when we do (rarely) go out anywhere these days, we need more stuff than ever before, from hand-sanitiser to face-masks, here's our pick of the best.
If you’re always scrabbling around at the bottom of your bag for hand sanitiser when you venture out to shop for essentials, you need one of these nifty and très chic pouches from sustainable Northants-based brand Cesca. Clip it on to your bag or key ring and you can grab it without fumbling around spreading those nasty germs. These come with a refillable bottle and you can choose from a rainbow of colours. They’re made in the UK using offcuts that would otherwise go to waste so they also help to reduce landfill.
Banish those nasty germs with hand-sanitiser from Whittlebury-based Wharf Distillery who pivoted in fantastic fashion at the start of Lockdown 1 to make this 80% alcohol hand-sanitiser. Order online and pick up from the distillery shop. You can nab yourself some of their lovely gin while you’re there too. Win win.
It’s always a faff trying to juggle car keys, glasses, gloves and face mask when you’re going from the car to the supermarket, but this lovely soft band from Mooch works as a scarf and mask in one, so it’s always there when you need it. Just pull it up and go. Plus it comes in a variety of patterns to suit your outfit of the day.
It may seem a bit random, but having your own pen in your bag is a good way of making sure you’re not picking up (or passing on) unwanted germs. This one is both a pen and a touch screen stylus, so you can use if for payment screens and ATMs too. Buy online from Northants stationers Colemans and avoid the online giants.
