Perfect Gifts for a Coronavirus Christmas

November 27th, 2020

Thanks (or no thanks) to the pandemic, the holiday shopping season is looking very different this year. In these times of social distancing, when we can’t see our friends and family in person, delivering a gift to a loved one’s door is one of the ways we can show them that they’re in our thoughts. 

As the pandemic continues to progress, more and more people turn to online shopping for gifts or Zoom calls for virtual get-togethers. This holiday season, consider how your holiday plans can be modified to reduce the spread of COVID-19 to keep your friends, families, and communities healthy and safe. 

Here are some unique gift ideas for your loved ones and to everyone who has helped you survive 2020.

Plants/Flowers 

Many of us are finding ourselves craving the outdoors more than ever, and a flower or plant delivery can help them stay connected to nature while also staying inside.

Box of home-made goodies

You may not be able to give them a warm hug but at least, a warm box of your home-made specialties will definitely make them feel special and loved.

Personalized puzzles

This is something to keep your loved ones busy while staying indoors, but with a personal touch. There are few greater feelings than putting the final pieces of a puzzle together. 

Care box

This Christmas care package can be filled with things you need to keep you safe during quarantine such as vitamins, alcohol, some medical supplies and maybe some snacks alongside them. But basically, the care package is pretty customizable and it can be perfectly catered to the recipient. 

A Streaming Bundle

For many, sporting events being canceled and Disney parks being closed feels a little too dystopian. Thankfully, Disney+, ESPN+, and Hulu can be purchased together in a bundle. Add up a premium subscription for Netflix and Spotify and you’ll get the best of the outside world with a click of a button.

Meditation Apps

We know how sensitive our mental health can be considering everything that’s been going on around us. Meditation apps which can be purchased or downloaded online can be a big help to practice mindfulness and decrease stress and anxiety. 

Enroll them in an online class

There’s nothing more gratifying than mastering a new skill, and it’s an even better experience when you get to share it with someone you love. There’s no shortage of online learning courses, so whether they want to learn to bake or brush up on their photography skills, there are plenty of applicable courses online.

Staying connected to those you love is a lofty task these days. It’s often difficult to replicate the joy experienced through quality time with friends and family, and while technology has made it easier than ever to stay in touch, nothing beats giving someone you love a hug. We hope these gift ideas bring joy to your loved ones and make them feel as loved as possible during the pandemic.
