Creative Ways To Celebrate Birthdays Amidst The Coronavirus Pandemic
Birthdays come once in a year and it is a beautiful time to celebrate with close friends and family.
This year, a lot of people will not observe the usual pomp and flair that comes with birthdays due to the Coronavirus pandemic that has affected the world in general.
Amid the new normal of social distancing, get-togethers both small and large have been called off, leaving many with the option of celebrating at home.
While you may not be able to throw the bash you had planned, there’s no reason to skip the festivities altogether If you or someone you love has a birthday coming up.
From sending your friend a delivery of champagne to hosting a party via video chat, there are plenty of ways to make the birthday girl or boy feel loved on their special day.
Below are beautiful birthday ideas to celebrate your loved ones’ special day amidst the Coronavirus pandemic.
1. A birthday card is a big yes!
The easiest way to show your love is with a card. Due to the stay at home and social distancing precautionary measure against the spread of COVID-19, you can send an e-card using a service like Paperless Post. Trust me, your friend would appreciate it.
2. Make a “Happy Birthday” video montage.
The only way to improve upon a traditional birthday card is to make it interactive. Use services like Tribute to create a personalized video montage. Ask friends and family to record their birthday wishes and Tribute will put them together and mail the celebrant a video card (it’s like a traditional audio card that also has a thin video screen). The gift is sure to be a keepsake for years to come.
3. Host a virtual birthday party on Zoom.
Set up a meeting on Zoom and invite all your friends for a virtual happy hour. The video quality on Zoom is impeccable and you can see each participant’s face in a simple grid view. Want to make things really special? Tell the guest of honor to sign on a little later than others and get everyone to sing “Happy Birthday” when they log on.

4. Deliver champagne to their doorstep.
The two of you may not be able to raise a glass together, but that doesn’t mean you can’t say “cheers”. Nowadays, there are so many ways to deliver champagne, wine, and liquor straight to someone’s door. There are online stores where you can order alcoholic beverages and drinks to the doorstep of the celebrant.
5. Send a dessert.
Cake shops offer delivery services that can be really beneficial at this time. Choose a local bakery or a restaurant with stellar desserts and send something sweet like a cake, cookies, or ice cream to the celebrant.
6. Drive-by their house and do something special.
Just because you’re social distancing doesn’t mean you can’t go to someone’s house. Deck your car with balloons and signs and drive by your pal’s place. Tell them to look outside and sing “Happy Birthday” when they come to the door or window.
7. Write them a song.
If you’re musically inclined, write your friend a song and present it to them via video chat. Even if your song isn’t incredible (or on the key), it’s the thought that counts.
Who says COVID-19 can stop you from marking your big day? You can still have fun indoors because birthdays are worth celebrating.
