5 unique ways to celebrate your birthday during lockdown

During April we celebrated two of my children’s birthdays.

My eldest daughter turned 28

and one of my sons turned 19.

Whilst our celebrations were most certainly a lot quieter and missing most of our family, as we are scattered during lockdown, there were still really special ways to celebrate.

Although technology has made it easy for us all to Skype, Zoom, whatsapp or facetime and we can send virtual hugs, messages, e-cards and gift voucher gifts, I was looking for a unique way for them to celebrate.

Here are 5 unique ways that you can make your loved ones birthdays extra special during the pandemic.
