In Pip Edwards’ $320 ‘care package’, her PE Nation staff sent HER to survive the lockdown — including a self-help book, macadamia hand cream, vegan chocolate and a chakra spray
With the lockdown set to last for at least a few more weeks, many employers are checking their staff who work from home to make sure they stick with it.
But that’s not the case for Pip Edwards, whose staff at activewear label PE Nation seem more concerned about her wellbeing during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Several employees joined in to send Pip, 41, a $320 luxury care package, which she received Wednesday at her multimillion-dollar Bondi Beach home.

She showed the gifts on Instagram Stories and proved to her 177,000 followers how popular she is in the office.
The basket included a candle, self-help books to treat anxiety, hair care products, macadamia nut hand balm, and a sleeping mask.
She was also served a range of delicious snacks, including raw vegan chocolate, chocolate covered nuts, and salted peanuts.
Pip was also gifted card games, which will no doubt entertain her at home.

PE Nation has effectively quadrupled its profits since it was founded five years ago, reaching $5.2 million in 2016/17.
The brand has collaborated with Caseify, Speedo and clothing giant H&M, among others, who saw a collection of 30 pieces worldwide.
Already priced up to $450, PE Nation’s coats can be found in luxury department stores in Australia and around the world.
In 2019, Pip described her company’s growth as “exponential” and said they had to move offices five times.
“We just kept growing and growing. We’ve moved offices five times to keep up and now have a team of 25 at headquarters,” she told Marie Claire at the time.
