Love is Never Postponed: Gift Giving in the Pandemic
Apr 09, 2020
With the global rise of the Covid-19 pandemic, many people are at a complete loss for how to feel or what to do. Suffering is widespread, with many people falling ill, and many dying themselves or losing loved ones to this terrible virus. Meanwhile, millions are having to quarantine or practice strict social distancing in the hopes that the curve will flatten soon, and we can come out of our figurative bunkers. It’s stressful and scary, but absolutely necessary if we want to save lives, and ensure everyone is safe and healthy. We understand that this is an equally uncomfortable and boring time, but there are ways to make it a little better.
Our advice? Turn to your loved ones and lean on them. Social distancing is about physical distancing, not emotional! With our technology and the internet, there are countless ways to stay close with those you love. Right now, video chatting and Zoom parties are both just a couple popular ways to remain social while responsibly quarantining. Looking for something a little more special? Why not give your loved ones a couple gifts? They’re surely appreciate in these trying times. If you’re at a loss for what to get, though, we’ve got your back.
Are you separated from the important men in your life and are looking for ways to lift their spirits right now? Or, perhaps, are you looking for a way to thank your partner or roommate for hanging with you during this Coronavirus outbreak? The nice wood watches would be great for that, especially if you engrave it with an encouraging message. Bonus? They’re very trendy right now in 2020. Also, brands like Urban Designer have big sales right now, so you can buy something nice for your loved ones while also conserving money during these financially uncertain times.
If watches aren’t their style, you still have plenty of great options! Classic tungsten wood rings would be a great present, or, even a nice necklace. For those interested in the latter, this Gemstone Pendant Necklace might be just what you’re looking for. Made with a Tiger Eye stone that can help balance energies, encourage self-worth, and aid in creativity, it’s great for battling the Coronavirus blues. It also has an elegant design and an adjustable cord, so it’s a touching gift that is also practical.
Despite everything that’s happening in the world, love should never be postponed. Show the important woman in your life how much you care with a touching, heartfelt gift. One way to do this is with a personalized wood watch. Not only is it a gift she will use every day (even while in quarantine!), but it will also be something that will bring some joy into her life, especially if you engrave it with a little personal message. A nice pair of wood earrings would also be a thoughtful present on its own or coupled with a wood watch.
For those who aren’t big into jewelry, why not give the gift of music with this Wooden Music Box? It’s certainly a good way to show your love while also giving something she’ll appreciate for years to come. Made by artisans and crafted with 100% reclaimed wood, you’ll also know it will be a gift that lasts. Just be sure to buy it in advance if you’re hoping to use it as an anniversary present as the Coronavirus outbreak might affect shipping times!
No matter what gift you give to your loved ones though, or how you’re choosing to stay connected to the important people in your life, we hope that you are staying healthy, happy, and safe. The Covid-19 pandemic is a difficult time for us all, both personally, financially, and beyond, but this too shall pass. We will get through this but only if we all do our part. So, be smart, stay indoors, and practice social distancing whenever you are around other people to prevent community spread. Together, we can flatten the curve. Best wishes to you all, and stay safe!
