The COVID-19 pandemic has thrust people all over the world into a time of uncertainty. Travel plans have been scrapped and we find ourselves confined to four walls, except for when we have to leave the house to run errands. Being stuck at home for long periods can be rather dreadful but as responsible citizens, we have the duty to keep ourselves and others safe by following the tightened Safe Management Measures. Even so, it is inevitable that we’ll miss our dearest friends and family members who do not live under the same roof. How exactly do we let them know that we care about them and how they’re always on our minds? We have five simple solutions for you to surprise your loved ones with this stay-home season.
- Surprise flower delivery
Nothing says “I care” more than a gift of flowers. Even though you may have to spend time apart from your special someone this stay-home season, you can always count on a surprise flower delivery to let them know that they are always on your mind. You can also choose to add chocolates, snacks or plush toys to your gift of flowers for a special touch. FARM Florist has a variety of bouquets, hampers and other floral arrangements, with free delivery for every purchase. If you can’t think of something that suits your recipient, we have our Surprise Bouquet and Surprise Bloom Box. Simply fill in the drop-down boxes on the product pages and let our experienced florists handle the rest! Our prices are among the lowest in Singapore! Shop now and be spoilt for choice!
- Order food for them
We’ve all been there, buying drinks for our friends or buying meals for our families. There’s no doubt that food brings people closer together, especially when you can easily order food for your loved ones online. As the older generation is at higher risk of being infected, they are encouraged to stay home even more. This may cause our elderly family members who live alone to feel even lonelier. Let them know that they’re on your mind by ordering their favourite food every now and then as a surprise! Don’t forget to leave a little message if possible to let them know how much you care!
- Make a unique DIY gift for them
It is good to pick up hands-on hobbies such as crocheting or knitting, which give our eyes a well-deserved rest from the screen. DIY handicraft kits are easy to order online and tutorials are readily available. Learn how to make a pair of customised friendship earrings for you and your best friend, or knit a scarf for your grandmother. There are no limits to the various possibilities you can create with just a few materials and online tutorials. Furthermore, your gift will be irreplaceable to your recipient as it is a one-of-a-kind surprise that is made with love.
- Send them the gift of entertainment
During this stay home season, indoor entertainment is akin to a vital need that keeps our minds occupied. Be it music, movies, video games or online shopping, everyone needs some form of entertainment to take their minds off whatever bad is going on in the world. Know that one friend who has been eyeing a game on Steam? Get them gift cards to offset their purchase. Share a movie streaming subscription with your friends or offer to pay for part of their subscription fee. Have a friend who loves online shopping? Give them Amazon e-gift cards for them to complete their next purchase. The possibilities are endless.
- Make a surprise call to let them know that you care
Nothing beats hearing someone’s voice to bring them closer to us. Be it having a video call with your grandparents or having a group hangout with the squad on Zoom, hearing someone else’s voice makes us feel less alone and more connected to the people we care about. You don’t need a reason to talk to someone. Simply exchange a casual “how are you” and let the conversation take place naturally. Connecting with your loved ones is a great way to show them just how much you care. In this age of connectivity, there is no excuse for us to not get in touch with the people you care about.
Don’t let distance get in the way of showing affection to your loved ones. Show someone how much you care about them with FARM Florist! We have a variety of flower arrangements for every gifting need, at affordable prices! Make someone’s day with a surprise flower delivery today!
