Updated: May 17



Times are hard, we definitely understand you. It is all the more we should lift our spirits up this pandemic period.


We know how tough and hard it is to celebrate your special one’s birthday when all plans have to cancel. But fret not, we are here to save the day! Who says you can’t have a memorable celebration at home?


Here are 6 ways to celebrate birthdays in quarantine! The best part is that, most of them are FREE!



1. Send a card

Showing your love through a card is simple but it is the sweetest way to show your love. Don’t live near your friend? No problem! Save the earth by sending an ecard using a service like Paperless Post!

2. Make a “Happy Birthday” video montage

Say hello to modern birthday cards and create an interactive and customized video montage with Tribute. Just ask your friends and family to record their birthday wishes. Tribute will help put them together and email the guest of honor a video card.

3. Host a Zoom Party

Invite all your friends for a virtual happy hour! Want to make things a little more special? Tell the guest of honor to sign in a little later than everyone else and sing “Happy Birthday” when they log on.

4. Host a Netflix party

If the guest of honor loves movies, schedule a Netflix party! Download the Netflix Party extension in Chrome, and you and your gang will be able to watch the movie at the same time. It also has a synchronized video playback so everyone's screen will pause and resume at the same time. Plus, there is a chat room so you can share your thoughts on the film or just make jokes with each other! #memes

5. Send a dessert

Send something sweet like a tart or a cake! A delicious surprise and also a great way to support your local businesses this Circuit Breaker period. #supportlocalbusiness

6. Be extra and glam up!

Just because you are celebrating your birthday at home doesn’t mean you have to do so in your PJs. Be a tad extra and set a theme for your party! I recommend Hollywood glam, rock ‘n’ roll, or Masquerade!
