- What You Need to Know
- Write a letter. The good old pen and paper letter never fails.
- Pick up takeout from a favorite restaurant. It's your loved one's special day. Her belly deserves to be happy, too.
- Sing happy birthday. Warm up those vocal chords, and don't forget to use your diaphragm. Practice makes perfect. (Sing it twice and that's the amount of time you need to wash your hands during a pandemic.)
- Make a nice bath or a serene spot to nap. Or both. Sometimes the simple things in life are the best things in life.

- Organize a virtual party. Cook suggests everyone quarantining with the guest of honor should FaceTime various others simultaneously, so multiple people can sing “Happy Birthday” at once.
- Set up a virtual film festival. If you’re a natural cinemaphile whose accustomed to low-key birthday watch parties, why not watch movie together online?
- Send them a celeb shoutout. Cook recommends utilizing Cameo to send your loved one a personalized birthday message from the celebrity of their dreams (or, the closest approximation of that person, available through Cameo).
- Or curate multiple video messages. A service like Marco Polo is amazing for this—it’s a service that shows when your loved ones are available to do Face-to-Face chats, and can even allow for group convos, right off the comfort of your phone.

- Gather virtually. Whether family and friends live near or far, a virtual get-together over video conference is an awesome way to connect while practicing safe social distancing.
- Send a special treat or gift in the mail. Self-isolation is no excuse for withholding presents from the birthday guy or gal. Lift their spirits by sending a favorite treat — whether that’s a cake, dessert, beer or wine — via an online order that can be delivered on their special day.
- Partake in a favorite activity. If you’re self-quarantining with someone celebrating a birthday, spend some quality time together for a favorite activity.
- Have a theme party. To really go all-out, consider celebrating your special someone’s birthday dinner with a festive theme — perhaps "camping" in an indoor tent, "movie night" with popcorn and surround-sound, or "Halloween" with candy and costumes.
- Throw a virtual party. If we were living in the stone age, keeping in touch with our friends and family would be extremely tough. Luckily, we’re in the 21st century and technology is evolving faster than ever!
- Bake your own cake. If there was ever a time to try baking your own birthday cake, this is it. Not only is it more special, it’s definitely more affordable than ordering a customised cake from a bakery.
- Go on a staycation. Depending on the restrictions in your country, you may or may not be able to book a hotel staycation. If it is still allowed, there’s no better way to celebrate your birthday during the COVID-19 pandemic.
- Pamper yourself. Yes, spas and facials may not be allowed right now, but that doesn’t mean you can’t indulge in self care. It’s time to stock up on face masks and oils for a proper day of pampering.
- Deck the halls. They may not be able to throw a proper birthday party, but that doesn’t mean they won’t appreciate some decorations to help them mark the occasion.
- Book a virtual experience. Throwing a virtual celebration doesn’t have to be stressful thanks to the number of fantastic virtual events and experiences that are now available to book.
- Host your own (virtual) party. It may sound pretty obvious, but getting a group of your friends together on Zoom to celebrate can still be pretty special.
- Give them something to do. Give the gift of distraction by surprising your friend or loved one with a craft kit or creative project. Not only will this give them something to do during lockdown, it’ll also leave them with a memento of this strange time.
