July 4th means something different for every American citizen. Of course, it marks our independence as a nation, but it is also a time to honor tradition and celebrate with loved ones, family, and friends.
Unfortunately, the 2020 celebration of the memorial day will be ‘different’ due to the pandemic plaguing the entire planet, and our country has not been the exception. Even if the time is not right now to honor this important date massively, it is time to let our loved ones know how much we love them.
This Independence Day the celebration will be more intimate, more familiar, our group of guests to home to celebrate will be very small because we must respect the rules to avoid getting covid-19.
We must prepare ourselves so that this day our home shows a very patriotic face. All family members are very comfortable and feel involved in the preparations for the celebration. Prepare fun games for the whole family to spend pleasant moments, prepare delicious recipes to enjoy the moment and the company. Communicate through video conferences with family and friends who are far from us or invite them to join you, watching tv through a watch party.
Send a detail, a thoughtful gift to one of our loved ones, to the grandfather, to the grandmother, to that boyfriend or girlfriend who is out of our reach brothers, children, husband, and wife, in short, anyone who is far from us. You may be surprised by a small detail that unexpectedly reaches your hands. Find that way to paint a smile on that special someone's face.
There is nothing like giving a gift that we know will be well received. And in these moments of confinement for the covid-19, what better than to provide good books, delicious chocolates, especially when we know that whoever receives them will enjoy them. And this time we want to give our grandparents a pleasant surprise since these days are especially difficult for them. Knowing that they will be happy to be loved is enough to get down, work, and choose gifts with them in mind.
When thinking about personalized gifts of the 4th of July, it is essential to imagine the face of the joy of the grandmother and the emotion of the grandfather. It’s a moment that sometimes, unfortunately, we cannot share with them, but knowing them happy is enough while the risk passes.
Can you imagine your grandma and grandpa’s face when receiving their unique gifts like a photo album with your last family adventures, or his favorite cookies? That will be a way that they will always remember this day, and their joy will be enough to make them forget this quarantine situation a bit.
