Order food online for your birthday buddy during lockdown

Food is the answer to everything. If you don't know what to gift your friend on their quarantine birthday, go with sending them food!

In a lockdown, online ordering services have become our salvation. So, think of your friend’s favorite dish and get it delivered to their place. Look out for online services that follow social distancing norms and hygiene, to avoid any mishaps.

You can also include a cute birthday note along with the food. This idea might be a little too cheesy, but still a great one!

Show love through social media

Making your friend's birthday special during lockdown is an easy job, especially with social media! Dig deep in your brain's creative side and come up with innovative ideas to make their day!

Instagram or Facebook stories and posts are the best way to make your friend feel valued on their big day.

Depict your journey through the various pictures you have of you both. Take a trip down memory lane with 'remember when' captions and evoke pleasant and beautiful feelings of nostalgia.

You can also make a birthday collage for your friend through apps like Unfold, Storyluxe, SCRL, and other collage-making apps.

Create a special Bingo edition for your friend’s birthday or start a hashtag!

Send a virtual card

Cards will forever be a cute gesture for any birthday. There are many card-making apps that you can use to create a pretty birthday card for your friend.

Bring out your artistic skills and make amazing cards using Handwrytten, justWink, or other apps.

Flood their phone with cute texts

Spamming may be annoying but not when it is filled with goofy and appreciative birthday messages.

Decide with your other friends and flood your friend’s phones with cute texts every couple of hours!

By the end of the day, she will be overwhelmed with so much love from everywhere.
