8 Ways To Make Your Quarantine Birthday Fun

Have you had to rethink your birthday plans because of Coronavirus? Maybe you wanted to travel, throw yourself a party, or go out with friends, all of which can’t happen now and in the foreseeable future.

Many of us are having to come up with genius ways to live life in the best and positive ways. For those of us who are going to be celebrating birthdays while social distancing, here are some creative ways to host a quarantine birthday.


Bake Yourself A Cake

There’s no birthday without a cake. Baking your own cake can be extremely rewarding.  If you are social distancing with your family, you get to celebrate alone.  If you are single, you get to have all that amazing cake by yourself. 


Baking can be really therapeutic and if you don’t know how to bake or decorate one, Zydii Africa has an affordable course that teaches you about cake baking and decorating.


Video Call Friends and Family

Maybe have some wine and cake o’clock. Of course, everyone brings their own wine and cake. There is a great video calling apps like Houseparty, Zoom, and Skype. Having a group call can provide you with an evening of stories, fun, and laughter.


Buy Yourself A Gift For Your Quarantine Birthday

Is there something you’ve been drooling over for the past one year that would make your life exceedingly better or bring you joy? Add to cart. A birthday is a blessing and you deserve some happiness.

Life lessons

Maybe it’s a book, a gadget, a new pair of boots to cope with the current weather or stationery to add to your home office. Buy it. You can also add your wish list in the family WhatsApp group just in case anyone’s feeling generous enough.


Order In

Ordering something you have been craving for will bring some normality into your social distancing life. If you don’t feel like cooking, order something delicious for the whole family. You can order different items on the menu to add some variety to your quarantine birthday breakfast, lunch, or dinner.


Treat Yourself To A Pampering Session

You could paint your nails a fun beautiful colour, have a long relaxing bath, invest in a body scrub, and pamper your skin, do face masks, or something that feels extra relaxing.


Binge Watch

Nothing beats an at-home birthday like a movie , comfort food in comfy clothes. Grab your snacks or order in and settle down to your favourite films.

Create Your Birthday Goals And Make a Birthday Bucket List

Where do you want to be by this time next year? What do you want to have achieved and which actions are you going to take to reach those goals?


These are questions that are important to ask yourself to help you come up with a one year plan. Add places you’d want to travel, career trajectory, and cuisines you’d like to try out.


Pick Up The Lessons You Have Learned In The X Number of Years

If you’re turning 30, what are the 30 lessons you have learned in 30 years? Which mistakes did you make that led you to roads not traveled and turned out to be really great choices in hindsight?
