We once joked about a time when Air would be sold as a commodity like bottled water,and here we are, it is happening in 2020.
Thanks to ever-changing Covid-19 travel restrictions, many people around the world have found themselves stranded far away from home this year.
Over in the UK, a fast-spreading new coronavirus variant has led to several countries around the world imposing bans and restrictions on travel to the nation, meaning a large number of residents currently abroad will not be able to return any time soon.
And so, relocation website “My Baggage” has dreamed up a special gift for homesick residents that’s quite literally a breath of fresh air.
Bottles of ‘fresh air’ from England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales is being shipped for £25 and are being marketed as the perfect gift for homesick Britons living overseas over the festive period.
Bottles featuring air captured on the London Underground and air from the inside of a busy Norfolk fish and chip shop are also available.
The company is currently selling bottles of “authentic” air from England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland to provide UK residents overseas with the scent of home.
The 500 milliliter bottle which is sold for £25 ($30) comes with a cork stopper, so the recipient can keep opening it up and taking in the aroma whenever they need a pick-me-up.
Aside from the four UK countries, the company can also take on special requests for any other specific UK locations, and say they’ve recently fulfilled an order from a Welshman who requested a sample of air from the mountainous region of Snowdonia in northwestern Wales.
