You may or may not already know that RedBalloon launched an ‘Experiences at Home’ range last month to help people stay safe and entertained from the comfort of their homes. Curated with the whole family in mind, you can unleash your creativity with an online paint and sip class, switch up your routine with glamping in your own backyard, sharpen your culinary skills with a virtual cooking lesson and much, much more. If you’re looking for isolation inspiration, our team spilled the beans on their favourite experiences from the range. Consider your weekend sorted!
“Mine would be the paint your pet lesson because it’s such a cute and unique way to honour your pet and gets you being creative at home,” Tash, Content and Optimisation Executive.
‘What better way to isolate than with your very own iso-carb making machine? It’s a great way to get in the kitchen and learn a new skill and it comes with a bonus bottle of wine – the perfect at-home activity that will keep on giving in the years to come,’ Storm, Digital Analyst.
‘G&Ts have always been my go to when I catch up with my friends but I now have a new appreciation for gin. Tasting 12 different types of Australian gins, you really appreciate how each distillery has their own profile and I’ve learnt a lot of interesting facts!’ Alyce, CRM Manager.
‘My favourite is the online BBQ breakfast class. I never thought of breakfast on the barbie but now I’m going to try this with some friends for Sunday brunch (and the bloody marys sound like the perfect accompaniment!)’ Matt, Chief Growth Officer.
‘Having done a paint and sip with friends in the past, this is such a fun way to stay entertained at home although I doubt my family will be hanging up my artwork anytime soon!’ Meg, Digital Marketing Executive.
At-home glamping experience – Sydney
‘With international and regional travel off the cards, this backyard glamping experience is an awesome way to shake up your surroundings and bring some fun to your home. I can’t wait to try it out!’ Brittany, Digital Content Producer.
‘I am loving this skincare workshop! Being stuck at home means I can give my skin a break from makeup and I have been looking for new products to use as part of my skincare routine. Being able to create my own all natural products from this experience has done wonders for my skin!’ Elisa, Marketing Executive.
‘While I haven’t had a chance to do this yet, the “Virtual Reality Escape Room Board Game – 2 Games” is next on my list of experiences at home! Having done the real thing, and because I love puzzles, I can’t way to try a virtual version with some mates!’ Toby, Enterprise Account Manager.
‘With more time at home, the garden and self sufficiency have been filling up my time, this was a great product to dive into more detail and help set me up for an epic organic garden! Roll on picking my own herbs and veggies’ Matt, Head of Consumer Marketing and Partnerships.
‘I can’t wait to do the Tiny Bear Distillery gin pack and virtual cellar door tour – as a gin lover who loves trying out different types of gins and garnishes to class up my Friday afternoon drinks, it’s on top of the to do list!’ Kirsten, Finance Manager.
‘The hula class went down a treat with my god daughter and her friend. Not only that they’ve spent the rest of the week making up new routines themselves and putting on little shows for their younger siblings which has been a welcome distraction during lockdown! I’m now the best god mother ever!’
