Staying indoors for the foreseeable future has its limitations, but some ecommerce brands are making sure you have access to things you need (and some cool quarantine nice-to-haves!) without having to step foot outside your home. We’ve put together a roundup of some special brands who are offering useful products (and even some sales!) during this time: from loungewear (for comfort), to gym equipment (to keep your body in motion), to protective gear (to practice safety when venturing outside your home) to “necessities” like coffee and alcohol.
