Do you realise how this pandemic has affected us? Most of us have to work from home, experience online classes, online meetings and have lower chances for us to meet our family and friends. There are a lot of things that you can actually do to make sure you are always connected to your loved ones.
# 1 Send flower
For those who are under strict restriction movement order or quarantine, they must have been disconnected to the outside world and it might make their life sad and gloomy. It can be used to decorate their living room or bedroom. Sending flowers to them may be the reason for them to smile today.
# 2 Customised gift box
This has been a trend for so long! Sending a gift box as a birthday present, anniversary gift or just because you want to do it is one of the best ways especially when you can customise it by yourself. You know your family and friends better, so customise it with something they like. Chocolates, scarves, notebooks, and people even put instant noodles in the box. If you are too busy to do it yourself, just order it online and send it to their house.
# 3 Fruit and veggies basket
Fruit and veggies baskets can replace the snacks you put in the gift box especially when you are giving it to kids or older people. They must love these healthy snacks. There are people who do surprise services with this kind of food but if you think of preparing it yourself, you can buy them online. Few grocery stores provide delivery services for those who buy vegetables online Malaysia with low delivery charges.
# 4 Order their favourite food
There are a lot of food delivery services in Malaysia such as Foodpanda, Grabfood, McDelivery and KFC Delivery that provide delivery from any restaurant. You can order the food from your home to be delivered to theirs easily. If you want to deliver your own food, always opt for a delivery service like Lalamove.
# 5 Plan a virtual meeting
Since we can no longer go to their houses and meet them, a virtual meeting is the best choice. Though it does not feel the same, that is the best option you have during this health crisis. You cannot go to places so make places come to you. Be it online dinner, online date, online cooking class and online cinema. Do everything you want virtually, it might bring happiness to some of them.
# 6 Always check on your family and friends
Going out and meeting people may be someone’s way to keep living so a pandemic is not a good thing to them. Always, always check on them. Check on their health, emotions and the most important thing is their mental health. Staying inside can be very exhausting especially for those who have online classes and work from home. You don’t have to do it daily. Consider texting and calling them once a week.
If there’s a will, there’s a way. Make everyone happy with your thoughtful gestures as you still can.
