Gifts for Virtual Birthday Parties

Today we’re talking gifts for virtual birthday parties.  Even at the best of times, gift-giving can be, um, tricky, and gifts for virtual birthday parties can be even trickier.  

And a virtual birthday party doesn’t mean there can’t be presents and celebration.

You can, of course, go the traditional route and send gifts, or you can get creative…

For instance, you can always…

Gussy Up the Front Yard

Let the street know it’s your wee one’s big day and decorate your front yard with balloons, streamers, posters, chalk drawings.  If you live in a building poster up that window or decorate that balcony.

Ask friends of the birthday kid to come by (when no-one else is around) and add their own messages and pictures outside in chalk.


Your virtual guests could decorate their own door and you can drive your birthday kid around to their friends’ houses to see the decorations. It’d be even more fun if their friends could be outside to cheer or sing or yell happy birthday as you drive by.
