It can be difficult to let friends know you are thinking of them, especially whilst you are social distancing. Here’s 5 easy ways to send them a little positivity in lockdown.

Things to do for your friends whilst social distancing

  1. Get a takeaway delivered to their house
  2. Send them a care package
  3. Create them a list of book, film and music recommendations
  4. Buy them a voucher for a meal after lockdown
  5. Send voice notes

1. Get a takeaway delivered to their house

There is no better feeling than opening the door to the pizza delivery person or receiving a Chinese feast to your flat. Share the food obsession by ordering a friend’s favourite meal straight to their house.

2. Send them a care package

Whether you send a set of pyjamas, chocolate, a face mask, craft kit or a bunch of flowers, a small gift will brighten anyone’s day. You don’t have to spend a lot of money, even a card will do. The little things go a long way when we are social distancing.

3. Create them a list of book, film and music recommendations

The boredom can hit pretty hard, so why not create a list of 5 of your favourite books for them to read, 5 albums to listen to and 5 films to watch. Create a checklist and you can talk about each one as your friend checks them off.

4. Buy them a voucher for a meal after lockdown

We all need something to look forward to, so a voucher for a bar or restaurant is always a nice idea. It gives you a chance to think about future plans and get something in the diary.

5. Send voice notes

Show your friend that you’re thinking of them whilst social distancing by sending voice notes. We are all on different working schedules, so sometimes video calls can be difficult to organise. Whether you send a clip of yourself recounting a funny moment you had together, an update on your day or just a note to say hi, it’s a quick and easy way to show you care.
