While it can be very disappointing for 2020 seniors who are unable to fulfill their dream of walking the stage due to social distancing practices being put in place, there are many alternate ways to celebrate one of life’s huge milestones. Having an at-home graduation or giving some words of encouragement to a graduate you know are great ways to let them know you care and are thinking of them during this time. Need a graduation gift idea?...A customized necklace, ring, or bracelet is the perfect gift for a graduating senior! Engraving something such as their graduation year on the back or even looking for a stone that represents their school colors is the perfect way to remind them of their amazing accomplishments.
Do you have a birthday coming up?! So many people have had to celebrate their birthday in quarantine this year. Even though you may not be able to go out for a fun birthday brunch or go bowling this year, there are still so many ways to make it a special day. Having a virtual birthday party, going on a fun hike, or getting dressed up for a dinner at home are all ways to continue social distancing as you celebrate another year! Also, it is a birthday of course...let’s talk about gifts! Birthstone jewelry is always a thoughtful gift that will show your loved one how much you care for them. They will be reminded of your kind gesture every time they wear their precious birthstone.
While birthdays come around every year, engagements and weddings are much more rare celebrations, many of which have had to be postponed to a later date due to Covid-19. While it can be disappointing having to move a wedding date, think of all the extra time you have as a way to really grow with your future spouse before the wedding...there are many things you can do to strengthen your relationship during this time! Try recreating your first date at home or have a painting and wine night. If you’re a friend or loved one of the future bride and groom, consider buying them an early wedding gift to let them know you’re thinking of them.
Another milestone that doesn’t happen everyday - pregnancy, or even having a baby, during quarantine can bring so many emotions! Having a child is one of life’s most beautiful moments of a mother’s life, and there’s definitely no way to postpone this event, even in the middle of a pandemic! A great way to congratulate new parents during this time is with a birthstone “push present”, a gift that will remind them of their beautiful baby’s birth month every time they wear it. Many baby showers have also had to be cancelled due to social distancing reasons. Consider a virtual party or decorating the house for the special event, you can still celebrate through the internet, even if you can’t be with loved ones at this time!
Lastly, while going out for a fancy dinner is the usual tradition for wedding anniversaries, there are so many alternate ways to look back and remember your special day with your spouse. Making dinner together, looking through your wedding photos, or even ordering your favorite dessert for take out are great ways to celebrate your anniversary while social distancing from others! Consider buying them an anniversary band to remind them that you wouldn’t want to quarantine with anyone else.
Although these milestones tend to look a little different lately, there are still plenty of ways to celebrate and let your loved ones and dear friends know you are thinking of them! We hope you continue to stay safe and healthy during this time.
