Shelter in place is our new norm for the foreseeable future. First, shelter in place was expected to last two weeks. Then, projections were early April. Now, we’re hearing that we may have to remain indoors until early May. It varies depending on which newscast you watch and at which hour, but I personally think we will be stuck in quarantine in Miami until the summer. Whatever the time frame, I think we can all agree that it’s going to be quite a while before we’re all gathering together again. Which means that my birthday will NOT be spent in Barcelona, as planned.
Shelter in Place Gifts for Women during Social Distancing
While of course I already knew weeks ago that this trip was going to be cancelled, I had hoped for refunds, but that’s not the way it works, is it? Which means that I’ve lost that $800 investment…as it’s being refunded as an airline credit, not a refund to my credit card. FABULOUS. So not only can I not celebrate my birthday, but I’ve lost $800 until a time when I can afford to go again…and I was traveling with a friend. MOTHER EFFER. I HATE IT HERE. 2020 SUCKS.
With that being said, I know that I am not the only one who will be celebrating alone. I know this! One of my best friends had to celebrate her birthday alone at the onset of this. It all just sucks. So, here are some Shelter in Place Gifts for Women for all of those girlfriends of yours that you can’t physically celebrate with during the Coronavirus outbreak…I really hope they help!
Shelter in Place Gifts for Women during Social Distancing
While we’re all doing the shelter in place thing, time is passing. Birthdays, holidays, and just random times when we’d tell someone how much they mean to us are all passing by. So while we’re stuck at home, here are some great gift ideas for women that you can send for special occasions or just to let your mom, sister, or bestie know that you’re thinking about her.
Super Fun Face Masks
Sometimes, we have to go out, so we might as well have fun with our PPE. These cotton face masks from LemonPeppoArt, a friend of mine, are a ton of fun and help your bestie look cute while following CDC guidelines. They come in all kinds of colors and patterns, and she’s adding more daily. They use ties instead of elastic so they’re more comfortable and have an inner filter lining. She has sizes for both adults and kids, so the whole family is covered. I mean, come on, there’s nothing better than a gift that says, “I want you to live.” LOL
StellarPlantHouse Happy Birthday Gift Box Set
This adorable StellarPlantHouse Happy Birthday Box is the perfect gift for anyone who loves color, candles, and virtually indestructible houseplants. Each gift box features a super cute birthday card, soy candle, and succulent plant in a terra cotta pot with burlap wrapping. It’s an easy gift that says Happy Birthday without you having to be there.
Forever Wick Unicorn Poop Candle
If ever there was a gift fit for a bestie, it’s the Forever Wick Unicorn Poop Candle. This limited edition, hand-poured candle from Forever Wick has a mysteriously fantastic scent and comes in a reusable glass container. And come one, the name is pure perfection. I bought this for my sister’s March birthday and she loves it!
MantraBand Not All Who Wander Are Lost
Shelter in place is a particularly hard thing to go through for those of us out there who have a severe case of wanderlust. This simple, elegant MantraBand is perfect for the traveler who can’t actually travel at the moment. It’s Not All Who Wander Are Lost message brings back memories of travels past and the promise of future wanderings to come. I have one for my best friend and I, it’s going to be her birthday gift!
The PediPocket Blanket in leopard print – rawr – is a super cozy, super sassy blanket perfect for cozying up at home but still maintaining that Rebel Chick attitude. The PediPocket is heavy enough for winter and somehow still light enough for breezy warmer days. Most importantly it has a pocket for your feet, hence the name, to keep them toasty warm at all times.
Snoozies Wine O’Clock Slippers
The shelter in place order has caused a rise in day drinking, which is really no surprise. If you have a lady in your life who’s not afraid to have some wine no matter what time of day it is, these Snoozies Wine O’Clock Slippers are the perfect gift. They feature an ultra-cozy lining and an adorable embroidered wine bottle on one slipper and a wine glass with cheese on another. They are perfection, in my opinion.
Ekoauer Women’s Sleepwear Sets
If there’s one thing that shelter in place has going for it, I’d say it’s the ability to wear your jammy jams all day, every day. If your girlfriend, mom, or sister is rocking the jammies 24/7, she might as well look as sass-tastic as possible while she’s doing it. Ekaoauer Women’s Sleepwear Sets are perfect to keep her comfortable and show off her personality. These extra comfortable pajama and tank sets come in a variety of prints and colors, so there’s one for everyone.
Fire HD 10 Tablet
We’re all stuck inside, so a gift that makes it easier to survive the monotony is always a winner. The Fire HD 10 Tablet has a full 1080P display, 32 or 64 GB of internal storage (expandable to 512 GB with microSD), and 2 GB of RAM. It also sports enhanced, dual-band Wi-Fi, USB-C charging, and a battery life of up to 12 hours. That means so, so many cat videos, filters, and apps to fill the endless hours.
For the reader in your life, the Kindle Oasis is the perfect way to get through the long days. This reader boasts a 7″, 300 ppi Paperwhite display, adjustable warm light, and a thin, waterproof design, so she can soak in the tub while she soaks up the chapters. It also works with Audible and Bluetooth headphones for either reading or listening to books.
Cool Coast Products CoronaVirus Too Soon Coolie
This shelter in place thing is scary for sure. The world has gone nuts, and this virus is a very real threat. While we’re all waiting this out, we need to be sure we keep our sense of humor. After all, if you’re not laughing, you’re crying.
These Cool Coast CoronaVirus Too Soon Coolies are perfect for that. Whether she drinks beer or pop, she can keep it cold with coolies that make fun of the scariest thing that’s happened to any of us in decades. From TP to the “Made In Florida” print, my favorite, these coolies are the perfect gift for the woman in your life who loves to poke fun at everything.
Amazon Gift Card
You can’t give a better gift than an Amazon Gift Card. Think about it. Shelter in place means more time to shop. What’s more fun than shopping? Why, shopping with free money, of course. When you give an Amazon Gift Card, you’re giving the gift of free cash, the joy of shopping, and the choice of picking anything in the entire store. Perfecto.
Shelter in Place Sucks Less with Swag
Whether it’s for a birthday or just a random way to let your mom, sister, bestie, or another important woman in your life know you’re thinking about them, these gifts make it suck less to shelter in place. From cozy slippers to a reader or tablet, there’s something to here to make the current shelter in place order more bearable for every woman.
