Read on to learn more!
1. Movie Party
There’s no need to resort to a Zoom gathering to watch a movie together. You can socially distance outside. Set up a projector in the yard, put on a movie, and invite your friends or neighbors.
2. Virtual Game Night
Charades, Cards Against Humanity, and many more games are well-suited to a Zoom experience. Invite your friends and family to celebrate your birthday with a good, old-fashioned game.
These kinds of games work well because Zoom replicates the experience of being in the same room together. It’s also a great way to get people together who live far away from you.
3. Make a Special Dinner
Treating yourself to a special dinner works well when in quarantine. You can still get all the groceries you need. You don’t need to go to the trouble of social distancing if you keep the dinner only for people you live with.
It’s your special day so have whatever you want. Make it a little more special with a nice glass of wine or even champagne. And don’t forget the cake!
4. Virtual Gathering
Bringing friends and family together from across the world to celebrate you is one of the best things to do on your birthday.
Host a Zoom happy hour or just a short chat. Either way, you’ll feel special on your big day because all the attendees are there because of you. It isn’t quite the same as hugging and chatting face-to-face, of course, but it’s a good option nonetheless.
5. Learn Something New
You’re stuck at home on your birthday so why not make use of the time you have to learn something new? Treat it as a chance to better yourself on your birthday.
Professionals with different expertise are hosting online tutorials all the time. Watch them and learn to bake, try yoga for the first time, or find out how to build a cabinet. The sky is the limit on what you want to learn because there are so many interactive classes available now.
6. Visit a Drive-In Movie Theater
If you really need to leave the house because you’ve been isolated for too long, a drive-in movie theater is a great option. The social distancing is taken care of because you’re in your own car.
Find the nearest theater to you, pack your popcorn and drinks, and off you go.
7. Get, um, Creative
If you’re on your own and are missing the more intimate interactions you had before quarantine, you might consider treating yourself on your birthday to a cam site. In case you don’t know what these are, check out the best cam sites available.
These Things to Do on Your Birthday Will Make It One to Remember
Just because you’re stuck at home doesn’t mean there aren’t some amazing things to do on your birthday. With a little prep and imagination, you can have an enjoyable birthday even in quarantine.
Bring your friends and family to you no matter where they are. Treat yourself.
