Having a birthday during the Coronavirus crisis is a tad unfortunate to say the least, but while parties may be cancelled, the celebrations themselves are not. In a bid to help you celebrate the birthdays of your loved ones from afar, we’ve rounded up the chicest lockdown birthday gifts for her that money can buy.
I had high hopes for 2020. I was going to holiday in Sardinia, city break in Krakow, celebrate my birthday at Ascot and spend as many Saturdays in beer gardens as possible. A global pandemic was not on my agenda, but alas, things have been a little… quieter.
I certainly can’t complain – I’m here, healthy and – for the most part – happy. And I’m actually quite enjoying having more time on my hands. The only time I find it really tricky? When a friend or family member is celebrating their birthday and I can’t get to see them IRL. That stuff HURTS.
Beauty lovers will be *so* appreciative of a beauty subscription box like Glossybox, which you can order from the comfort of your own sofa. For just £10, she could have the brand’s latest beauty box delivered to her door (full of new industry releases from a range of exciting brands). Or how about paying £8.50 per month for the rest of the year so she gets them until May 2021?
If she’s a lover of food and drink (aren’t we all?) she’ll adore this afternoon tea hamper from Selfridges. Alternatively, treat her to a date night curry subscription box to spice up her weekends (quite literally), a coffee subscription from the amazing Pact Coffee or this trio of exceptional sparkling wines.
Scroll further and you’ll find a luxurious self care bundle from Selfridges, a gin-themed puzzle to keep her entertained, a personalised Soho House dressing gown for her to live in and a letterbox flower bouquet from Bloom & Wild. A fail safe gift for anyone.
