If the pandemic has taught us anything, it’s the importance of self-sufficiency – lest you want to be caught on the back foot.
A reliable home office setup is crucial in slaying the hybrid working arrangement as the hyper-efficient employee you know you can be. Likewise, being equipped with the right mod-cons will ensure you won’t be left languishing with tired-looking outfits, or desperate for a decent cup of coffee, should you be issued with the dreaded Stay Home Notice.
Help your loved ones live their best lives by riding out the uncertain times with these excellent Brother International products, which can be purchased from LazMall and Brother International.

Connect this nifty labeller to your smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth, open one of two apps (for Android or IOS) and watch it spit out labels at a speed of 20mm per second. The device comes with a rechargeable Li-ion battery. But perhaps the best thing about it is its versatility. Feed it with a variety of tapes – from ribbon to decorative and laminated – and print pretty labels for your important folders, food containers or lovingly baked parcels of sourdough for your inner circle mates.
