Throw Throw Burrito Dodgeball Card Game – Always good to throw a Burrito at someone just for fun (Kirsty) – Throw Throw Burrito Game


Succulent of some sort in a nice pot – a real winner with more working from home and can brighten up the desk space. Also from experience very easy to maintain and keep alive! (Pete)- 130mm Ceramic Bowl Succulent Garden | Bunnings Warehouse


Some scented candles to spruce up the home when family is around (Manu) – Ecoya Candle @ Myer

Covid has me thinking of spending more time in Victoria, so a weekend away with dinner & matched wines (of course) at Brae. You can stay next door to the restaurant at the guest suites which look amazing, and save you having to travel with a full belly! (Pete) – & Brae Guest Suites (


A beachside holiday home in Byron Bay to share with friends and family for me please.  If there’s no limit a Yoga/Dance studio too! (Sarah) – Visit Byron Bay


Provided America gets COVID under control… Courtside seats to the NBA to see Dallas Mavericks vs LA Lakers. Would be amazing to see the old goat (Lebron) vs the new goat (Luka) in action (Zac)
