Many of us have missed the chance to celebrate the best day of the year, our birthdays due to the pandemic. Celebrating our birthdays makes us feel good, especially when the cake is delicious and you’re surrounded by all your favorite people. However, the pandemic shouldn't stop us from being there for our friends and family on their special day. Here are some creative ways to help make their birthday a little better.


Make a group video

Get you and your friends to make a video compilation of each other wishing the person a Happy Birthday!


Send them their favorite book

Buy your friend a book that they like and send it to them! Not only will they think of you when they read it but it will also give them something to do during the lock-down. If they are more on an e-book reader, then email them an e-book instead!


Send flowers

Most florists do delivery so ring up your local florist and have them make a beautiful birthday bouquet to send to your friend.


Send cake

Order a cake from their favorite bakery and surprise them by having it delivered to their place. Who wouldn't love some cake during a lockdown?


Netflix party

Did you know that you can actually watch Netflix over the internet with your friends? All you have to do is download a google chrome extension called “Netflix Party” and viola! You can host a birthday movie night.


Make an exploding gift box

This is a great gift for your friends and a perfect way for you to get rid of boredom. This DIY gift shows that you care and the person who you give it to will definitely appreciate the effort and hard work you put into such a creative gift!
