Celebrating birthdays in times of lockdowns and social distancing may be difficult but it’s certainly not impossible. Here are 3 out of the box virtual and hybrid birthday celebration ideas.
Celebrate with a short movie
Let your colleague know how much they mean to you on their special day. Have everyone record a short video wishing the birthday person a great day. Friends among colleagues could make an extra effort to add a personal note to their message. Let Hafla take care of the grunt work when it’s time to put the footage together in a creative and fun way. Get in touch with us to hire a freelancer to collate the videos. Feel free to discuss what shape you’d like the video to take – Hafla is open to suggestions and is happy to design your video according to instructions.
Gamer girl/boy celebrating a birthday? Make it special for them by renting a PlayStation for the day or for the birthday weekend. Let the birthday person overdose on their favorite games on their special day. Looking at pushing it up a notch? Hire a fancy sound system to enhance the atmosphere, throw in a bean bag for comfortable seating and organize a meal delivery with the birthday person’s favorite cuisine. With the fancy setup, the birthday person is not going to want to move from that bean bag, so we’re suggesting you go for finger food!
Surprise your colleague by sending a custom delivery to them on their birthday. Imagine the birthday person’s astonishment when your delivery comes knocking and they return with it to a meeting full of colleagues singing the birthday song! The delivery could be a piñata, a box of fruit, a personalized gift, or a custom-made cake. Just make sure it is timed to overlap with your online meeting schedule so that you can all celebrate together. It’s Hafla time!
