ENJOY A MINI TREAT
Heard of Japanese mochi? The naturally gluten-free, rice-flour-dough cakes, traditionally eaten at new year, are often filled with a sweet paste. In Little Moons’ version, the delicious little balls contain ice cream! Made from high-quality milk, cream and fruits, the ice-cream treats come in flavours including: Alphonse Mango, Uji Mafcha, Sumatran Coconut, Madagascan Vanilla, Summer Raspberry and Toasted Sesame and cost £4.99 for six mochi; liftlemoons.co.uk.
SEND A PRESSIE
Know someone in need of some TLC? You could send them Parcel’s Self Care package. Inside the box, they’ll find the Positive planner – a mindful gratitude journal to encourage mental wellbeing. They’ll also discover a relaxing gardenia and jasmine candle, a box of Supertea lemongrass and ginger tea, a pot of Nordic honey and a bottle of Cult live vinegar tonic. Oh, and a lovely card with your message in it, too. Sorted. £68; parcellondon.com.
GET A SOUND UPGRADE
If music’s a workout must for you, you’ll love Bang & Olufsen’s new Beoplay E6 splash- and dustresistant wireless earphones. Sound quality is amazing and, with a choice of ear-piece sizes for a super-snug fit, you can concentrate on your moves. The tough, braided cord resists moisture, while the in-line remote with aluminium buttons and microphone is simple to use so you can also take calls or speak to Siri. Done listening? Click the earpieces together around your neck, necklace style, thanks to internal magnets. Clicking the earphones together also shuts down the power to save the (five-hour) battery life; and there’s a snap-on charger. £269; beoplay.com/e6.
UP THE STYLE STAKES If you lead an active city life, hybrid activewear and fashion label Perff’s latest collection, that’s new to the UK, could be just what you need to see you head from gym to work and out and about. Blending fashion and function, its City clothing boasts gym-wear-style performance, but high fashion looks; while its Active category offers high-end sporty looks designed for the gym. The PEPFF Studio Uptown Pants (pictured, from the City collection) cost £100; perff.com.
