As the COVID-19 global pandemic drags on into 2021, the isolation caused by continued lock down hits hard especially during the holiday season. If you have a love one feeling trap by isolation, then a socially inspired gift that you can use together, will no doubt provide the pick me up to make their holiday special. Here’s a list of our top quarantine Christmas gift ideas to cheer up your loved ones in isolation.
Online classes to take together
There’s nothing more satisfying than learning something new. When you’re also able to bounce ideas and discuss your new found skills with a loved one, it’s even better. There are a number of online learning providers that offer courses as gifts, with the most popular being Udemy. If you’re already enrolled in a course that you think would make a great gift, you can do it with a single click right from your dashboard. There’s no shortage of courses, so pick one that you know they’ll enjoy and use this time in isolation to grow your skill sets together.
Read the same eBooks
With the plethora of online communication mediums available, reading your favourite books can easily become a social affair. Why not grab an online Kindle Unlimited subscription for an isolated loved one, directly from Amazon. Once they have a subscription, take it upon yourselves to discuss your favourite genres and read the same book together. This turns isolated reading into a social affair, inspiring each other to read more so you can discuss that next exciting plot twist on next week’s call.
Stream music together
Live music at bars and arenas are on temporary hold during lock down. Why not bring the tunes to them. With Spotify Premium, you’re able to not only listen to add free music on any device, but also connect and listen with a loved one. Gift a subscription and you can listen to a huge catalog of live performances on demand, in a virtual concert for just the two of you. Trust us, there’s nothing quite like that feeling you get when you’re jamming to the same tunes together.
Help your loved one find themselves
While a lock down can seem quiet on the outside, a lot can be going on inside your loved ones’ mind. Help your love one clear their mind through meditation with the Headspace app. Though this app is free to download, you will get the most benefits through subscription. If you know someone who is particularly struggling with isolation during lock down, talking to them should be your number one priority. However, meditation can help calm nerves and stress related anxiety.
For many, having events being cancelled can be daunting. Why not purchase them a Roku or a Jetstream andriod box. You can also gift a subscription to Netflix or Disney! It is the perfect gift that keeps on giving. Netflix Party has quickly become a popular app that allows you to watch movies together.
Custom bandanas for when you can finally be together again
While a lock down may seem that it is going to last forever, you have to remain positive. When lock down is over you will be able to receive that much needed hug. Most states have made face masks mandatory while traveling in public spaces. Why not prepare yourself with any of the custom bandanas from Hoo-Rag. They have a wide range that would also make for an ideal Christmas gift.
These quarantine Christmas gift ideas will bring you closer despite the distance. We wish you a safe and Merry Christmas!
