We all have birthdays, graduations, and anniversaries happening. COVID-19 has made it hard to celebrate the way we want to, but not impossible. Here are some ideas for you to celebrate those special occasions.
HAVE A PARADE/DRIVE-THROUGH PARTY
I’m sure you’ve seen this all-over social media already. This is a great idea to be able to see all your loved ones and celebrate while maintaining a safe distance.
With the weather warming up, the evening is a nice time to be outside. Stargazing is a great way to spend quiet time.
HOST A FACE-TIME PARTY
You can use sites like Zoom, Google Hangouts, or Messenger to see all your loved ones at one time. You can even get food involved and have a virtual happy hour, coffee date, or dinner party.
HOST A NETFLIX PARTY
If you love movie nights, you can host a Netflix party to watch your favorite Netflix content while on a group chat. Click here to learn more.
TAKE A REFLECTION WALK
Take a hike or walk in a scenic environment to reflect on your achievements and dream about the future.
ORDER YOUR FAVORITE FOOD
Nothing says celebration like food, haha. Order in from your favorite local restaurant to celebrate.
MAKE YOUR FAVORITE DESSERT
Now that we a little more time on our hands, now would be a good time to learn how to make your favorite treats. If you’re feeling generous, you can make enough to share with loved ones and drop it on their doorstep.
HAVE A PICNIC
Take some food out to your favorite outdoors spot to eat. You can even include others and have a car picnic. Everyone can enjoy food and each other’s company at a safe distance in their car.
SEND DIGITAL CARDS + GIFTS
If you’re looking to gift someone, you can still do that by sending a digital gift/e-gift card. Along with that digital gift, send an e-card or a video of you congratulating them.
If you happen to be financially comfortable in this time, consider setting up a donation fund for your celebration that goes to a local charity. Even if you don’t donate to a charity, consider giving to friends and family that may be struggling. You can buy them groceries, a meal from their favorite take-out spot, or send them some cash for them to use how they’d like.
Whatever special occasion you’re celebrating in the time, I hope you can have fun celebrating safely with all your loved ones.
