It’s an unusual time to be celebrating an April birthday. Ringing in your big day with friends and family over a Zoom videoconference will never feel quite right. And while social distancing means the Aries in your life may not be throwing the party you were expecting, it’s not an excuse for you to skip out on your loved one’s birthday.
In fact, if there ever was a time to really celebrate your friends and family members, we’d say this year is it. Sending a thoughtful, heartfelt present is a reminder that even though you can’t be near your loved ones physically, you’re still supporting and celebrating them from afar. Sound a bit pie-in-the-sky? Perhaps. But will your friends still gush over getting a special delivery on their birthday? Definitely.
To help get your shopping search started, we’ve rounded up seven deliverable tokens of appreciations, ahead.
