A Plymouth mom is hitting town with her epic Lockdown-inspired ‘breakfast boxes’ that will last until 2022.
Jessica Nevin started her Let’s Go Back to Bed business last January selling and delivering delicious food packages.
The 30-year-old from Plympton started shipping the boxes more as a gesture, but has now turned the idea into a much stronger full-time operation, having previously dabbled in makeup artistry and creating wedding backdrops.

Jessica’s food deliveries created something completely new and different in 2021, and now she’s launching the delicious breakfast boxes that can be made for two people or a family.
These include croissants, pastries, muffins, donuts, brownies, flapjacks, strawberries and Jessica asks customers what their favorite chocolate should be as a personal touch.

She told PlymouthLive, “It’s more of the stuff people picking up on, so the name was all about delivering it and you can put the box back into bed. Perfect when you have a hangover.
“The boxes have a breakfast side, but also the cheeky side because you can just let yourself be pampered and not bother.
“I’ve also made healthier ones where people eat fruits like pineapple, grapes, strawberries, and Activia yogurts.
“Many tend to be the same unless a customer has requested something else and I’ll tell people what they contain before they order. They will ask to add this or if there is an allergy I’ll replace it with something else.
“The boxes can be made for two people, which is enough to support a family of four, but I also make family boxes that have four or five of everything.”
Jessica added, “I tried to bring a wedding breakfast box out last year because on a wedding morning when you’re married you never have time to eat, so the idea was to choose savory and sweet snacks.”
When Jessica started the business at the start of the lockdown, she said the boxes were very popular regardless of whether people ordered them for themselves or gave them away to people who might have Covid at the time.
Not only does Jessica make all the boxes herself, she also delivers them to customers’ doors across Plymouth.
“In the first few weeks I had about forty boxes to make. There was one night I didn’t go to bed because I was at Tesco at four in the morning trying to get her ready.
“The novelty of this waned as the world reopened because people were able to return to reality.
“But I’m going to try it again this year because I have the feeling that a lot of people, now because of Covid, value things more than clothes can be bought, but this is more of the gesture, people value it.
“The breakfast boxes are all Instagram-compatible, they can be photographed well, they look good and you can enjoy them.”
Jessica also makes other themed boxes for birthdays, baby showers, Valentine’s Day and in the past created a breakfast box for a customer’s 21st birthday that contained her own version of a “drunk barbie” surrounded by small alcoholic beverages and treats.
