The Best Gifts to Send a Loved One That Can Be Delivered to Them in Quarantine – Gift ideas for birthdays, moms, nurses, doctors, teachers, brides

It’s my best friend’s birthday this upcoming weekend and I was totally stumped on what to send her in quarantine that would help brighten her day. In person, I would usually show up with homemade cookies or brownies and flowers, so having to celebrate from afar – especially for her big 30th – is tough!!! But it made me realize we all need ideas for new creative ways to celebrate the people we love while we’re all forced to be away from them!!! SO here you go – a bunch of fun, loving ideas to for gifts to send loved ones while in quarantine – and ways to stay connected to your friends and family whether it’s for a quarantine birthday celebration, mother’s day, father’s day, an anniversary, a new baby, an engagement, a postponed wedding, or a would-be bachelorette weekend.

The best birthday gifts to send in quarantine / lockdown

Send a Self-Care Gift Box

How cute is this box?

Send wine

When in doubt, ALWAYS send wine ;). One of the sweetest things my bridesmaids did for me when I postponed my wedding was send me two big magnums of my favorite wine “for the extended wedding planning.” It was the best surprise, and it made me feel so happy after going through such a stressful time. If you know their favorite wine, look it up on this site here that delivers all across the US or if you can’t decide which wine to get, check out this post on all my favorite wines, at every price, for recs.

$15 off your order of $150 or more with code WINETIME 

Another super easy way to send wine is via the Drizly app – which delivers in under an hour – so if you’re a last-minute gift giver, this is ideal! They’ll also print a gift note and it’s super cute!! They do a really good job. 

You could also send them beautiful fancy wine glasses to drink it with! 

Also – if they’re a margarita person, send tequila! This is my favorite tequila right now – and it’s SO pretty. 

Send steaks or a fancy dinner

Whether you order it on Postmates, or you send something your loved one can cook up like steaks (that’s what my mom did for us via Omaha Steaks for our would-be wedding weekend and it was SO sweet), sending a nice meal is a super sweet gift! 

Send flowers

Nothing makes a birthday girl’s day more than receiving surprise flowers in the mail. And with so many online flower delivery options, it’s a no-brainer! Check out The Bouqs Co. Birthday Flowers – the prices are great and the quality is perfect!
