It’s safe to say that most of us will be glad to see the end of 2020 and it’s clear that the start of the new decade hasn’t really lived up to its hype.
Holidays, nights out, meals with friends, drinks with colleagues and family get-togethers have all fallen by the wayside as we desperately try to keep ourselves healthy and protect others. And if you have a loved one whose birthday is coming up soon, then you might be wondering how you can make it extra special, when most of the world is currently closed and inaccessible. However, despite quarantines and lockdowns, there are some simple and effective ways you can spoil your loved one on their birthday.
Read on for some birthday gift ideas for those stuck in lockdown.
A psychic reading
You don’t have to visit a traveling carnival or take a trip to a spiritualist event to enjoy a reading from a psychic medium. Fortune reading is incredibly popular, and it’s a fun way for your loved one to gain some insight into what their future holds. Something which we’d all appreciate right now! Whether it’s career-related questions, information about their love life or clarity on a particular subject, your loved one will thoroughly enjoy this unique and incredibly personal gift.
Need a universal, but still heart-warming present? How about making a personalized birthday slideshow? Nowadays, when we can’t go out much, a video with your congratulations and best wishes is a perfect choice. You can make a slideshow for all your family members: your kids, husband, beloved one or close relatives. There are different concepts to consider. For example, if you make a birthday slideshow for your closed one, you can take pictures and clips showing the funniest and happiest moments in the birthday person’s life during the year.

We’re all spending more time indoors these days, so why not help your loved one transform their home into a plant paradise? Bringing a little bit of nature indoors can help purify the air in their property, keep them feeling calm and even help lower their blood pressure. Looking after houseplants takes time and effort, so it’s also a worthwhile hobby that will keep them busy.
Whether they’re taking part in Zoom calls, taking the dog for a walk or sitting around watching TV while the winter rain lashes the windows, treating your loved one to a new loungewear set means they can do it in style and comfort. You’ll find lots of options online, so you’re sure to find something that suits their personality and flair – perfect for those days when they don’t want to get fully dressed.
A book subscription
If your loved one is an avid reader, then chances are they’ve probably exhausted all their current reading material in the previous lockdown or quarantine phase. Treating them to a monthly book subscription means that they’ll have a whole year’s worth of novels to look forward to and keep them occupied. The perfect escape from the dreary world outside.
As we’re all spending more time at home, why not help make their home even cozier and welcoming? Candles, incense, oil burners and diffusers make wonderful gifts that last for ages!
And finally, something to look forward to
Everything is a little uncertain at the moment, but looking ahead to the future can bring joy and hope to everyone. So, with this in mind why not spoil your loved one on their birthday with a pre-booked trip or experience that they can look forward to next year? It’ll lift their mood and if things don’t go to plan, you can always rearrange it.
