With so many of us across the country quarantined due to the coronavirus pandemic, Easter likely looks a little bit different this year for you and your loved ones. But that doesn't mean you can't still celebrate—or at least give your friends and family something to brighten up their holiday. To help you shop for Easter presents without actually leaving your house, we've rounded up 12 amazing ideas below—no shipping required.
1. A Kindle Unlimited subscription for readers
How many books is too many? For those of us who love to read, the answer is the limit does not exist. So a subscription to Kindle Unlimited is the perfect gift. Not only will your giftee have access to thousands of e-books, audiobooks, and podcasts right at their fingertips, but they don't even have to have a podcast to use the service—you can read from almost any device.
2. A food delivery gift card so they can order out
Gone are the days of going out to your favorite restaurant for Easter brunch. Help your friends bring said brunch to them with a gift card to a food delivery service like GrubHub or DoorDash. Bonus: Right now, GrubHub has an option where you can donate your change to help support local restaurants and drivers.
3. A pretty bouquet of flowers from Bouqs
Nothing says "Happy Easter" quite like a beautiful bouquet of spring flowers. And while you can't deliver it in person, you can order a bouquet from a flower delivery service like Bouqs. Not only are there plenty of gorgeous blooms to choose from (including wildflowers, roses, and lilies), but you can even gift your friends or family a monthly subscription for a gift that truly keeps on giving.
4. A ClassPass membership for home workouts
We all have that one friend or family member who is always on their way to spin class or just getting home from barre. And since they can't currently get to the studio or the gym, send them a subscription to ClassPass. Aside from offering discounted fitness classes, the app also has a massive library of at-home workouts taught by expert instructors, from yoga to boxing to HIIT. Plus, once gyms and studios reopen, your giftee can use ClassPass to go to all their favorite group fitness classes.
5. Everyone's favorite streaming service: Disney+
At this point, chances are high your friends and family have watched everything (or at least everything worth watching) on Netflix. So it's the perfect time to sign them up for Disney+ if they don't already have it. The wildly popular streaming service has any and every Disney movie (including Marvel, Pixar, Star Wars, and National Geographic, along with the animated classics) and is completely family-friendly thanks to the fact that there are no R-rated movies.
6. A boozy subscription box from Firstleaf
One way to cope with the fact that the only way you can celebrate Easter this year is with a Zoom call? A glass—or two or three—of wine. Your friends will love a subscription to Firstleaf, a service that delivers wine directly to their doorstep each month. Each box contains six different bottles of wine that have been curated based on their personal preferences.
7. A MasterClass taught by their favorite celebrities
Whether they want to learn cooking skills from Gordon Ramsay or photography from Annie Leibowitz, they can do it all with a subscription to MasterClass. Our editor-in-chief tried it out for himself to see if it was worth the money. His verdict? Yes—he found the classes to be very inspiring and informative and likes that you can take them at your own pace. Right now, the service is offering two annual memberships for the price of one, meaning you can either give away two or keep one for yourself.
8. The Sill's monthly plant delivery service
What's better than giving someone a plant for Easter? Giving them a plant for Easter and every single month after. That's what you'll get with a subscription to The Sill, the popular plant delivery service that our managing editor is a big fan of. The type of plant varies month to month and each one is hand-potted in a colorful earthenware planter. Plus, you can get 10% off your order with the exclusive code SPRINGSILL10.
9. A Brit.co class to get their creative juices flowing
There's really no better time than now to learn a new hobby. For that, give the gift of an online crafting class, like these ones from Brit.co. Your giftee can learn everything from cake decorating to watercolor lettering to digital illustration. I've taken both calligraphy and painting classes with Brit.co and love that the lessons are beginner-friendly and fun and that you have access to all the materials for life so you can re-watch them whenever you want.
10. The popular meditation app Headspace
Self-care is important every day—but it's especially important right now. And one way to help your friends and family relax is with a meditation app like Headspace, which has over 630,000 rave reviews. It has hundreds of calming guided meditations to choose from (some as short as two minutes!) along with a new "Move Mode" to help your giftee exercise more mindfully, too.
11. A gift card to their favorite store
What do you get the person who has everything? A gift card is a safe—and always popular—gift. And while they may not be able to go to the store right now, they can either save it for later or use it now to shop online (many retailers are offering free or discounted shipping!). Bonus points if you get them a gift card to a local shop or restaurant to help support small businesses in this tough time.
12. Homemade treats
If you're lucky enough to be quarantined with your family (or roommates), bake some homemade goodies to share. No matter what you whip up—whether it's gooey chocolate chip cookies or vanilla cupcakes—they'll be grateful for something that isn't another frozen pizza. Plus, all the time you spend baking shows just how much you care about them (it's the thought that counts, right?).
