You Can Still Live Out Loud at Home

We have been urged to limit our face-to-face contact for a few weeks, to cut the risk of the spread of Covid-19. At Gateway, we have adapted our operations to reduce risk and comply with Level 4 restrictions.

But…staying in doesn’t have to mean staying quiet. Here are a few of our ideas for Living out Loud at Home:

Family movies

With so much choice, picking a movie can be tough! If you don’t want to sing the lead track from Frozen again, try an old classic like Paddington, or Karate Kid, Remember the Titans, Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey, or E.T.

Pair a movie with one of the current #LockdownDeals our tenants are offering.  Meals for the whole family, are a great value takeaway option. Visit our deals promo page here https://www.gatewayworld.co.za/lockdown-deals/ or keep an eye on our social media pages – our outlets are freshening up their offerings all the time.

There’s a movie to suit your mood and make you cry, think, warm your heart, or laugh out loud – and a meal to match 😉

Games Night

If you’ve seen a person humming a song in Cranium, you’ll never be able to look at them the same way again! Games with words, numbers, strategies, one-on-one, or teams, there’s been a boom in board games. Try something new and perhaps the kids will let you win 😊

Our favourites: Bananagram, Cranium and Uno.

Master a puzzle

We feel great when we get things right. That’s because our bodies reward us with a shot of the feel-good hormone, dopamine, when we feel satisfied.

So, putting together a 500-piece puzzle makes for a feel-good surge. Sharing the activity with people you like being around could earn you another feel-good shot of oxytocin.

And to eat…

Takeaways go with board games & puzzles and there are over 70 offerings in the Mall to choose from and irresistible special offers below.

High Tea at Home

This one’s for the girls. And, once you get started, you won’t want to stop! With regards to tea, you could keep it traditional with Earl Grey, Darjeeling and Rooibos blends, or try some fresh new herbal and exotic flavours. Alternatively break the rules and pair your treats with your favourite hot drink – Espresso, Americano, Cappuccino, Hot Chocolate, Mocha or Chai Tea…

There’s a saying that you eat with your eyes. So, presentation is important, and you can have so much fun with different themes and colours. Choose, or make your own macaroons, delicately detailed petit fours, dainty sandwiches and chocolates.
