The cold leaves me craving red wine, a roaring log fire and comfort food,” says Hannah Donovan of LVLY.

To help Melburnians who might be feeling similarly this week, she and Verity Tuck (also of LVLY) have teamed up with Shortstop to help the city through its mid-season mood swing.

Starting Monday, you can get a box of six Shortstop doughnuts delivered for $38. Included in the pack are comforting winter flavours such as apple pie, and more unusual ones, such as Earl Grey and rose. And for $65 you can get your doughnuts with a side of LVLY’s daily posy of fresh flowers.

The limited-edition collaboration (available next week only) is the latest in an ongoing commitment by LVLY to support local businesses and brighten people’s days. Its site features small, thoughtful gifts worth giving because, as Donovan puts it, “The weather sucks, or it’s Monday, or you just really want doughnuts – we’re all about making someone’s day."

Whatever the excuse, doughnuts are always a good idea. Especially when they’re delivered to your door.

While they’re not available until Monday, you can (and should) pre-order your doughnuts now.

LVLY’s collaboration with Shortstop is available from Monday April 13 to Friday April 17. You can find a full list of their delivery locations here.
