With COVID-19 separating people more than ever, it can be difficult to find ways to connect while maintaining distance. One of the best ways to show you care is by sending gifts to your loved ones. The right present will convey the message that they’re on your mind, even when you can’t see them.
If you want some help brainstorming, read on for four easy gift ideas to send your friends and family!
1. A Virtual Gift Card
If there was ever a year for online shopping, it’s 2020—and your friends and family could probably use a little help supporting their eCommerce addiction (it’s not like there’s anything else to do). You can find tons of virtual gift cards online for popular retailers, including:
- Home Depot
- And more!
Why this gift works: Virtual gift cards are faster, easy to use, and they’ll never misplace them!
2. Personalized Wine Box
Put together a curated box of wine for your loved one and make their day when it shows up at their door. Depending on their taste, you can choose from:
- White or red wines
- Wines under $20 (it’s not the price of the wine, but the thought that counts)
- Sparkling wines
Why this gift works: Why risk exposure at the liquor store when you can get wine brought straight to your loved one’s door? Plus, personalizing an order to their tastes will show how well you know the wine lover in your life.
3. Gift Basket Delivery
The best part? You’re not limited to the classic flowers and chocolate anymore. A gift basket delivery can include a wide variety of goodies, including:
- Fresh fruit
- Bath products
- Chocolate covered strawberries
Why this gift works: The only thing better than a nice gift is a surprise same-day delivery (and maybe a thoughtful card, too) to brighten their day!
4. Meal Service
If your loved one is tired of takeout, consider signing them up for a meal delivery service that will bring delicious food straight to their door. These subscriptions are great for a multitude of reasons:
- Healthy food
- Pre-portioned meals
- Easy-to-follow instructions
- Something to do for once
A meal subscription service doesn’t have to be a long-term commitment, either. Simply send your friend a single box and see if they like it! At the end of the day, if they decide cooking isn’t their forte, at least they got one tasty meal out of it.
Why this gift works: People are bored right now, and everyone loves a home-cooked meal, even if they have to make it themselves.
Your Loved Ones Could Use a Surprise Right Now
Nobody loves being stuck at home all day, but a thoughtful gift has the power to make it a little more bearable.
Get into the spirit of giving and send your friends and family something to make them smile. Everyone’s tastes are different, but the ideas on this list are sure to bring someone you know some much-needed joy. So, send a few gifts out, and hopefully your friends and family will be able to thank you in person in the near future!
