Easter this year might be a little different but that doesn’t mean we can’t show our loved ones we care from afar. As we’re social distancing from our family over Easter and for the foreseeable, we’ve put together a collection of virtual and deliverable gifts to help you spread some joy this April.
Virtual gift ideas
1. Restaurant vouchers
As we know, it’s now more important than ever to support our local businesses. With this in mind, why not treat your family to a restaurant gift card to enjoy post-lockdown? Check out their favourites on Instagram, or on their website, to see if they’re offering vouchers (most are).
2. Easter gift cards
Did you know you can send virtual gift cards online? Plenty of retailers stock them, including us! Give the gift of Arlo Wolf this Easter with a virtual gift voucher. Or, if you prefer, you can purchase a physical gift card and we’ll send it directly to them!
3. Get creative
Homemade gifts are one of the best ways to show you care, but how do you do that when you’re social distancing? If you’re a design whizz, why not put together virtual Easter cards to send to your loved ones online? You could also put together a compilation video to help your family reminisce of good times gone by. Getting creative is a fun way to keep yourself occupied while indoors – give it a go!
Easter gifts delivered to their door
Despite the current coronavirus situation, delivery firms are still operating across the UK. If you act fast, you might be able to get some of these gifts delivered directly to your family’s door ahead of Easter weekend.
4. A good book
Whether you’re buying for your mum, dad or grandparents, books are a lovely gift idea for Easter. It’s a little different from the typical Easter gifts and will certainly help to keep them entertained during lockdown. Need a little reading inspiration? We’ve put together a list of our favourite reads to pick up during social isolation.
A blooming brilliant Easter gift idea if we do say so ourselves! Puns aside, flowers are an Easter go-to here at Arlo Wolf HQ. Check with your local florist over the phone if they’re offering deliveries this Easter. If not, you can send flowers to your family from websites like Flying Flowers and Bloom and Wild. Easy peasy.
Pair a good bottle of wine with flowers for an Easter gift that’s sure to be a hit this year. Supermarkets and online wine merchants are certainly well-stocked with bottles of red, white and rose. We’ll raise a glass to that!
7. A new pair of specs
An unconventional gift that’s always a hit – why not send your mum, dad or gran a new pair of specs this Easter? At just £65 a pair, Arlo Wolf prescription glasses are a unique gift idea we’re sure they’ll love. We even offer a try before you buy service, meaning you can send them four pairs for free to try on for style. Once they’ve picked a pair, simply let us know and we’ll fit their prescription lenses for them.
Happy Easter! Remember to stay safe and stay indoors.
