How to Celebrate a Special Occasion in Lockdown

Celebrating a special occasion usually involves parties, friends and family gathering together and unique gifts.  With a few changes you can still have an occasion to remember during lock down.

Unique Gifts

If you can’t be there to celebrate in person, there are lots of wonderful gifts you can buy online and have delivered.

Wedding Anniversary Gifts

If you’re looking for an anniversary present for parents there are traditional gifts for each year of marriage.  Starting with paper for one year of marriage, tin for the tenth, silver for the 25th wedding anniversary and not to forget grandparents who reach gold for their fiftieth.

Father’s Day Gifts

Dad can be really tricky to buy for but there are lots of personalised Father’s Day gift options from engraved hammers to keyrings  or even just breakfast in bed.

Birthday Presents

Lockdown birthdays for kids are particularly difficult as they’re missing their friends.  How about making a present and dropping it off on their door step. A make your own brownie kit is easy to put together and has the double fun for kids of baking and eating.

Virtual Parties

While we might not be able to get together in large groups, it doesn’t mean you can’t still have a party, just go virtual.  Have fun creating party invitations and arrange a date and a time for an online call.  There are lots of free providers like Zoom that you can use.

If you want the virtual party to be more than just a chat, you can organise activities with a little bit of creativity.  Here are some lockdown party ideas.
