While families continue to socially distance, it’s difficult to find new ways to virtually connect that are fun, sentimental and unique. As Valentine’s Day approaches, many are using the holiday as an opportunity to connect with loved ones and make an exciting event out of a day traditionally associated with romantic couples. No matter who you’re celebrating with, there are plenty of ways to make Valentine’s Day a special occasion regardless of your relationship status. Below, we’ve shared three of our favorite ways to share the love with friends and family.
Gone are the days of chocolates and bouquets – this year, Valentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity to connect with loved ones and send them something extra to let them know you’re thinking of them. With GiftCast, sending a personalized video message alongside a cash gift takes a short amount of time but leaves a lasting impression on your recipients. The unique message, plus some extra spending money for a nice dinner or a fun gift, make it a simple way to send an impactful gift.
For a Galentine’s Day your friends won’t forget, send them a GiftCast cash gift to get everything they’ll need for the perfect night in. An at-home manicure kit is a perfect choice for anyone missing their regular nail salon appointments and a DIY facial kit provides the tools and treatments for ultimate relaxation. Whether you host a virtual watch party for your group’s favorite romantic comedy or video chat while applying manicures or relaxing with facials, quality time paired with a thoughtful cash gift is a great way to connect with friends and show them you care. Plus, your thoughtful gal pals can look back on a sentimental video from you for years to come.
When celebrating with family, give parents the night off with some virtual babysitting or an interactive gift that excites children of all ages. Reading a story, playing collaborative online games or even directing a virtual puppet show are just a few ways to engage with your younger family members while their parents take some time for themselves. For a creative challenge involving the whole family, a uniquely themed project kit provides a fun night of collaboration and imagination. When connecting with family from afar, finding ways to share unique experiences creates lasting memories of excitement and togetherness.
