With a little creativity, it’s still possible to have a magical and meaningful holiday season despite the pandemic.  Here are a few gift ideas to make loved ones feel special and comforted while celebrating apart as we stay in our homes this Christmas.

Surprise loved ones with custom holiday care packages

Care packages are a great way to let family and friends know you’re thinking about them. You may choose to assemble this yourself, or explore a lot of options online for readily curated care packages. You just have to decide on what “theme” you’d like to go with—from quarantine essentials to tea sets or movie time snacks, the choice is yours. The good thing is, anything that comes from you will surely be appreciated and enjoyed by your loved ones!

Connect from afar over movies and music

Use a service like Netflix Party to watch your favorite holiday movies together, while munching on the same movie snacks you baked such as gingerbread cookies, or a festive signature holiday drink. You could also send matching blankets as gifts in time for the watch party. Another idea is to ask your friends to share their favorite holiday song and create a shared holiday playlist on Spotify so everyone can enjoy the same tunes while cooking or decorating.

Go all out on handcrafted cards with the best family printer in town

Perhaps now more than ever, people will appreciate receiving printed holiday cards they can hold, display, and keep. Choose from a wide selection of printable templates from HP to make a holiday pop-up card, or print and send a “Grateful for You” postcard to let someone know you’re thinking of them.

Some fun holiday crafts and cards available in the HP Printables site include:

To make sure your handcrafts boast with vibrant colors and design, choose the best reliable tool that can deliver to your specific needs—whether for producing these heartwarming cards or for everyday practical requirements at home or in school.
