You might be stuck at home practising social distancing, but you can still have a memorable birthday celebration with these ideas! No reason to skip on the festivities altogether. When this pandemic ends- and it will- you can throw the biggest birthday bash of all times!
Send a personalised card/postcard
We're not talking about e-cards and generic birthday posts on friends Facebook pages. Send a personalised card or postcard inundated with meaningful messages, add in colourful sketches, an inspirational quote and metallic glitter. It really makes the birthday message more special and shows that you really value that person's friendship. No one else will receive a card so beautifully crafted and put together!
Organise a Zoom party
Set up a meeting on zoom and invite all your friends for a virtual birthday Happy hour! Video quality on Zoom is impeccable and you can see everyone's face on a simple grid view easily. No one's left out!
Deliver a champagne bottle on their doorsteps
Just because we're practising social distancing, doesn't mean you have to put your organised Birthday bash and Girl's night on hold. You may not be able to raise a glass together (unless you have a Zoom party going on), but you can say 'Cheers'. In the 21st century, there are many ways to deliver liquor straight to someone's door.
Host a Netflix Party
If you love movies and TV series as much as we do, why not host a Netflix party for someone's birthday. All you have to do is download Netflix party extension to your google chrome, and you and your besties will be able to watch the same episode or movie at the same time. This feature includes synchronised video playback, pause and resume-time so no one misses out.
Send over a cake
Support small local businesses and make someone's birthday more special is by ordering delivery and sending a cake! Choose somewhere local with stellar baked goods and desserts.
Do a funky group workout
With all this spare time on our hands, you can take your virtual birthday party up a notch and organise a group workout over Zoom. Due to the outbreak, dozens of gyms and studios are closed until further notice. This doesn't mean you should be a couch potato all day!
Get Glam with the roommates
Yeah, you're celebrating at home. Improve the mood by rounding up the housemates and getting your glam girl on! Set up a makeup bar in your kitchen or bathroom and challenge each other to recreate some complex or even themed beauty looks. Hilarious antics guaranteed.
Write and sing a song
Musically inclined? Write a song and sing it to them via video chat! Even if your song isn't the most well written or on key, it's the thought that counts.
Drive to their house and do something special
If you're really desperate on giving your friends the good wishes they deserve, then do so. Abide by the rules and regulations of social distancing by driving to your bestie's place, parking on the street or in their driveway and have a WhatsApp video call from your car.
Have a dance party in your bedroom
Turn your living room with your club and have the biggest, baddest dance-off with your family members and roommate! Or, dance away your woes in the comfort of your bedroom!
Have fun and stay safe babes!
