Finding a good work-life balance at home can be frustrating. We’re used to working during the day, hitting the gym after and getting home to an excellent series or documentary. With all our schedules thrown off by the lockdowns and social distancing, we thought a short list of online lifestyle shopping options would help get you back in the groove of things.
These stores have all the devices you need to organise and track your work, fitness or any other goals you may have set.
Powerbuy is truly a one-stop-shop for ALL your electronics needs. You can walk into the store at Central Festival Phuket to buy a kettle and walk out with an additional TV, iMac and a washing machine. The online store is exactly the same. Delivery is free across the board, and if you have the 1 Card, you could get a good discount.
You may just need an SD card to start shooting photos of your garden, or you may be stepping things up with a new graphics card for your custom-built gaming PC. Banana stocks all the gadgetry you can imagine to achieve your techy dreams. Shipping is free with orders over ฿499.

Formal shirts and boxers, blouses and pyjamas or activewear, these stores have what you need to keep you fit and feeling good.

Well-known for delivering the latest fashion trends at great prices, H&M’s online store often offers more than what you would find at a physical location. The global fast-fashion chain is currently offering free delivery on all items. Download their app for Android here and iOS here.
Decathlon is an entirely different monster. Affordable prices make this a favourite activewear, sports and outdoor equipment and accessories store. Find your camping gear, yoga mats or dumbells all on one website. Shipping is free with a minimum order of ฿1500.
It’s important to note that there is a high volume of online orders due to the sheer number of people staying home. This means longer wait times and sometimes delayed orders, so factor that in when you place your online orders.
