Covid-19 came and turned the world upside down within seconds. Hospitals got overbooked, shops closed their doors, flights got canceled, and the world started to look like a scene straight out of a zombie movie, right after a zombie apocalypse of course. Masks and sanitizers became the “new normal” and the world we lived in even a couple of days back now no longer existed, everything changed overnight. Hugs and kisses used to be ways to show your loved ones that you love them but now maintaining distance from them is the new way of showing that you care for them. Who would have thought it would be like this, right? I am sure if you knew it would be like this, then you would have hugged the ones who are close to your heart a little tighter the last time you saw them, spent a little more time with them, went out a little more, enjoyed the small things a little more that you used to take for granted before. Isn’t it?
The lockdown is hard for each person in different ways. For some, going out used to keep them sane and now they are struggling to stay inside the house, for some maybe it was knowing the particular date as to when they could meet their loved one was keeping them sane but now they are no longer sure, some want to just go to work, while some want to just go back home. It’s hard for us all, in different ways of course and just because your way is not the same as the person next to you, it doesn’t make either of your feelings invalid. You matter, your feelings matter.
Of course you are missing your loved ones, whether it’s your partner, friends, parents, siblings, cousins, colleagues, or anybody your else heart is fond of or your mind is used to. It’s normal, even if it’s a work colleague you hardly used to talk to or that cousin of yours you always used to fight with. You might not be able to hang out with them for quite some time now but in case you are missing them a little too much today, you can send them a gift for sure to remind them that they are important in your life, you care about them and they are currently being missed immensely by you. It’s not just going to make them feel good but you too. Try it out in case you don’t believe us.
Here is a list of gift ideas that you can choose from for anybody you are missing during this lockdown:

- An instant camera
Yes we know that nobody can dress up now and go out to have fun but we all can create at least some beautiful memories inside our house, right?
