The coronavirus and COVID-19 pandemic has upended our everyday lives for over a year. This means, we’ve all had a birthday during COVID and celebrated a lot of our friends and family members birthdays over Zoom or socially distanced as well. For some, we’ve missed some milestone birthdays like turning 18, 30 or 75! For others, we’ve missed a relatively mundane year like 31, 46 or 61. But, regardless of the year, we still need some unique and interesting birthday gift ideas that relate to the times and interests of the birthday person.
How to Choose a Quarantine Birthday Gift
Choosing a quarantine birthday gift presents quite a challenge. After all, typical birthday gifts or celebrations are generally out the window. For example, a celebratory dinner out with a group isn’t an option, yet we still want to acknowledge the birthday person. However, everyone still has some new or old interests that have percolated during the COVID era. Did the birthday person start gardening or baking during quarantine? Did they take up golf or running? Conversely, if they are an avid traveler, then some standard gifts like luggage may miss the mark, but there are other travel-related gifts that will help spur their inspiration for a post-COVID world. Or, as we grow accustomed to our at-home world, is there anything that will help improve their comfort around the house?
