Livening Your Birthday This Year: Ways You Can Make It Perfect This Year
Birthdays are an essential part of our lives. It happens only once a year, and we do our best to make them perfect. But it’s quite challenging to set up the birthday we want this year because of this year’s pandemic.
The main pain of setting up events like birthdays is the cost. We don’t tend to spend too much on birthday parties, but it’s been found that we spend around $1,500 on them. For parties that are considered to be essential, like sweet sixteens, we spend around $20,000. You don’t have to spend so much on your birthday this year if you’re creative enough. We also have some suggestions that won’t require you to spend at all! Here are some great birthday ideas you can do during the pandemic.
If there is one thing that Asians love doing despite the pandemic, that would be karaoke. Asians are finding ways to do this fun activity regardless of quarantine restrictions. It’s also reaching the US as more and more Americans start to sing their heart out on this wonderful activity. An online karaoke session might be the event you just need during your birthday.
Online karaokes are fun, and everyone can participate. It’s also a great way to show your talent, and who knows, you might also discover a friend or a family member’s hidden talent. To set it up, all you have to do is to have an online conference ready. For maximum bandwidth, you can do it on Zoom. About 40 or so people can participate in this, but of course, you can always choose to have less. Make sure to have a subscription through so that you can go above the limited one-hour meetings.
To see the lyrics of the song you see you can share a screen video from YouTube. Many legal karaoke channels sport even the most modern songs. It’s a great choice, and the best part is that you don’t even have to spend a single cent on starting it. Maybe choose to pay for your friends and family’s meal for the occasion if you’re feeling it.
Virtual Game Night
If you’re the kind of person who loves board games and your friends and family members, then a virtual game night is for you. It’s not the most extravagant birthday party, but it’s certainly one way to break the ice.
Various board games have made it into the Internet, and most of them are free. Board games such as Battleships, Catan, even Splendor are now accessible. All you have to do is invite your players and play! It’s a fun way of starting a party or ending one. Additionally, you don’t have to be restricted to just board games. Feel free to play your favorite video games as well.
If you’re more of a movie-goer than a gamer, then hosting a virtual cinema during your birthday might be the best choice! Much like setting up a virtual game night, you can set up your conference call to be a movie instead. Then, just screen share anything you’re watching, and you’re good to go!
Have Yourself an At-home Spa Day
We all go to spas during our birthdays back then. It’s one of the best ways to pamper ourselves and forget about work and everything else. It’s a lovely way to treat ourselves when we need it.
You can still have the same lovely spa day as always. Prepare yourself some good scented candles and some nice and calming bath salts. This should make your at-home spa perfect when your birthday arrives. You don’t have to worry about visitors or the rest of the world. It’s just you and no one else. If you have the money to spend on it, you can invest in an automatic massager for your back. Trust us. Once you try this out, you might never need a spa ever again.
Spending Time with Anyone Near You
You can choose to just spend time with anyone in your household or dorm room. During this pandemic, everyone needs friends, and let this be a time for you to get acquainted with people near you. But, don’t be afraid they are as lonely as you are.
Feel free to throw a birthday party with them the way you used to and enjoy yourself with their presence. You certainly deserve it, and you deserve to have them around.
It’s not yet the end of the world! Cheer up and enjoy your upcoming birthday by following these suggestions. They are particularly easy to pull off and won’t require you to spend a lot of money either. So try them out and enjoy your birthday!
