Birthday and Covid: 5 gifts ideas during the Pandemic

posted by Chris Valentine

It has been a very difficult year. We were forced to deeply change our habits to face this singular period. Most of us had to give in holidays they had been looking forward to, and even some of the most common social activities are just a memory. Birthdays, for instance, are not the same anymore. Parties are not an option, just like dinners at restaurants, in most cases. Still, it’s possible to spend a nice evening with your beloved. And most importantly, some presents are perfect for this period as well. Actually, they might even get better than usual. Here’s our top 5!

  1. A virtual birthday party

Who said you can’t still have a party, even when Covid is out there making our lives miserable? Luckily, technology provides us with the ability to create real virtual parties, thanks to the many fun applications and platforms available. Zoom, Skype, Google Meet are just some of the examples but they all get the job done. This way we’d still be able to spend our birthday with the people we love, having a drink, a nice dinner and even tasting the typical birthday cake. Is there a better way to make your beloved’s birthday more special? Probably not, but in case you are still doubting, keep in mind that this is a gift at virtually no cost!

  1. A drone to explore your surroundings

Is your partner into technology? And does he or she also love a nice landscape or view? Then the perfect gift is a drone. With it, you’ll be able to explore your surroundings together, which is one of the most romantic things to do if you live close to nature. Imagine going through a forest, maybe at night, or even having a closer look at the hills surrounding your village. And don’t forget, with a drone you can even immortalize these moments by taking pictures or creating clips. The only thing you need to make sure of is that you don’t need a license for the drone model you chose. The rest is up to your imagination.

  1. An inspiring book

This probably won’t sound as exciting and innovative as the rest of the ideas listed, but a book will never disappoint. We all read. Some do it more, some do it less, but deciding to give a book as a gift is hardly a wrong choice.

What matters is that you know what the other person likes. After all, our goal is to entertain our special someone for hours and stimulate their imagination. In a way, it’s like going on a trip without leaving your own place, especially if we opt for a novel.

On the other hand, academic essays are a good option as well. If your partner is into knowledge and loves to spend hours studying and learning, you got yourself covered.

  1. A handmade jewel

Here, the same rule applies. If it’s your girlfriend or wife’s birthday and you want to go for a safe bet, a jewel is always a good choice. But if you want to take it to the next level and do something very special, you should choose a handcrafted jewel. By doing so, you are going to surprise your beloved with something truly authentic, hard to find elsewhere, and highly customizable at that.

Another great advantage of handcrafted jewelry is that it is often made with birthstones. So you just have to choose the stone of the right month and go for a nice ring or a fancy gemstone bracelet.

  1. A Netflix subscription

Easy but effective. Movie theaters are closed in most countries and that’s a shame. However, you can still take advantage of on-demand services such as Netflix and enjoy a great movie or tv series at home. Actually, spending a night on your couch has its pros, especially if you want to give it a romantic vibe. So don’t waste any more time and surprise your special someone with a new subscription!
