As this pandemic sweeps across the world, we have become used to being stuck at home day after day and not being able to go and see the ones we love.
This time of quarantine is perhaps harder for those who are celebrating their birthdays during this difficult time, and many are sitting at home alone on their special day hoping for rescheduled plans later in the year.
If you have a family member or a friend who will be celebrating their birthday in quarantine this year, there are some great gifts you can provide while still social distancing. Here are our top gift ideas for quarantine birthdays this year.
One lovely and unique way to celebrate someone’s birthday during lock-down this year is to name a star. There are millions of stars in the sky, and naming one after a loved one can be a sweet gesture they can hold with them forever.
A special cake
Even though birthday celebrations can be harder in lock-down, there are still many ways to make the day feel special for someone. Many bakeries are still delivering cakes and you can order a personalized cake to be delivered on the day. This can be any type of cake, decorated with their favorite things, and it will be a lovely gesture that they can enjoy on their special day.
There’s nothing nicer than a fresh bunch of flowers to brighten up the house, and when we’ve been stuck inside staring at the same four walls for weeks on end, a bunch of flowers can make a huge difference. Choose a local florist to support your local businesses and create a personal bouquet for your family birthday with their favorite colors and flowers.
A cooking kit
Since the start of lock-down, a simple shopping trip to get essentials has become a mission. Shopping at supermarkets is a lot more difficult than it used to be, and as a result it is important for us to be able to get food delivered if possible to avoid the madness. For a loved one’s birthday you can buy deliverable food gifts such as burger kits, steak dinner kits and more. They will be able to enjoy a special meal on their special day with fresh produce thanks to you!
If you don’t want to send cooking kits to the birthday boy or girl this year, sweet treats are always a winner. Sending a bouquet of donuts or a selection of cupcakes and biscuits can be a great way to celebrate and give your loved one something to treat themselves to on their birthday.
No birthday is complete without a birthday card, and during lock-down you can use a card delivery service online to create a special card and send it directly to their door. It will be a lovely surprise for them on their birthday and it will make them feel loved.
Use these simple gift ideas to make your loved ones feel special this year during lock-down.
