10 things for you to do to make your birthday special this quarantine

Although Coronavirus has taken over our lives, time stops for no one. During this pandemic, many of us find ourselves celebrating our birthdays in the middle of quarantine. Birthdays are an important part of any one’s lives so of course, wouldn’t you love to celebrate it? It might not be the most ideal situation, but who says you can’t have the best quarantine birthday?

We have come up with a list of ten ways you can celebrate your birthday in quarantine.

1. Bake yourself a cake

A birthday will never be complete without a cake. Since we all have access to the internet, there are so many easy and simple ways to bake yourself a birthday cake. And if you’re feeling extra creative, you can always try one of the more extravagant recipes.

2. Get Dressed up

Who says just because you’re at home you can’t dress up? Use this as an opportunity to bust out your favourite dress and get dolled up with some make-up. And once you’re ready, you will instantaneously start feeling better. And what’s a birthday without a little dressing up?

3. Do a photoshoot

To commemorate your birthday, and to remember it, you must do a little photoshoot. All you need is some good natural lighting and a good selfie timer. It can be a perfect pick-me-up, and you will have something to look back on.

4. Zoom call/video call
Just because your friends might not be able to be there physically, doesn’t mean they aren’t with you in spirit. With online video calling platforms increasing the number of people on one call, you can have all your friends from around the world right there with you when the clock strikes 12.

5. Have your favourite meal

This is the perfect time to cook your favourite meal. Take some time, look up a recipe that you have been wanting to try, or make something you have been craving for a long time.

6. Pamper yourself

It’s the perfect day to do some self-pampering. Give yourself a mani-pedi. Soak in the tub with some bath salts and some scented candles. Do whatever you need to, to rejuvenate yourself.

7. Have a virtual happy hour

Send an invite to all your friends who you would regularly spend your birthday with, and have yourself an online happy hour. Play some music, make your favorite drinks, and just have a good evening.

8. Presents

Now birthdays always come with presents, but it’s important to inform those around you about the safe and known delivery companies that are present in your area. And you never know, what you might get!

9. Netflix party

Now if you’re someone who enjoys a lowkey party, watching a movie with a group of your friends might just be the perfect way to spend your birthday. Since in our daily lives we might not get time to meet our friends, this is the perfect chance to catch up on the movies you missed out on.

10. Have a dance

If you can’t go to a club, the club can come to you. You can push aside your furniture, clear up some dancing space and go to town. Pick your favourite dance playlist, call a couple of people over and dance your hearts out!
