These few months have been very difficult and stressful on a lot of people all over the world. Not only were we stuck inside but we had to fear going out and getting our groceries. I have a routine of taking off my clothes in the garage, taking a shower and disinfecting everything that I purchase. After that’s done, it’s time to disinfect the counters and surfaces that I might have touched. One thing is for sure, however you are choosing to deal with this pandemic, it hasn’t been easy on you or your loved ones. Birthdays were missed, holidays were spent apart and families saw each other through screens. With all this going on, you can still be a part of their lives and provide the best quarantine gifts that they will love and appreciate.
Gift Ideas for Quarantine
Covid-19 did not affect just the old or the poor, it affected everyone. Howard Stern and his wife Beth had to learn to live on their own without the help of their cleaning crew. Robin Quivers sent them a Roomba and they loved it! They loved it so much that they purchased multiple ones for their large home. So is the Roomba on my list? Of course! Here are some of the best quarantine gifts you can send to a friend or family member:
- iRoomba robot
- Wine subscription
- Snack subscription box
- Fitness subscription box
- Kid’s activity box (for parents with children)
- Disinfectants, masks and gloves
These are just a few of the different gifts you can send to your loved ones during self distancing. The best part, you don’t have to touch any of these items. They are sent directly from the location/company.
What Not to Send During Quarantine
While a lot of people are being loose and ignoring quarantine, you should not be one of them. Use caution at all times and avoid large crowds. My cousin works at a doctor’s office and sees everything. One woman was put on suicide watch due to her mother getting Covid-19 from her and dying from it. While you might be fine, you have to be aware that you can easily pass on the virus to others. We don’t all have the same immune system and the virus does not discriminate. Young or old, you can get it.
To keep your family and friends safe, don’t send them gifts that haven’t been disinfected properly. I would avoid sending anything from your own home from now. Remember, the best quarantine gifts are the ones that come from the heart. Choose a gift that would be helpful to your mom or that person and make their lives a little bit better. If anything, they will know that you care and are there for them.
