I had high hopes for 2020. I was going to holiday in Sardinia, city break in Krakow, celebrate my birthday at Ascot and spend as many Saturdays in beer gardens as possible. A global pandemic was not on my agenda, but alas, things have been a little… quieter.

I certainly can’t complain – I’m here, healthy and – for the most part – happy. And I’m actually quite enjoying having more time on my hands. The only time I find it really tricky? When a friend or family member is celebrating their birthday and I can’t get to see them IRL. That stuff HURTS.

Having a birthday during the Coronavirus crisis is a tad unfortunate to say the least, but while parties may be cancelled, the celebrations themselves are not. In a bid to help you celebrate the birthdays of your loved ones from afar, we’ve rounded up the chicest lockdown birthday gifts for her that money can buy.

Beauty lovers will be *so* appreciative of a beauty subscription box like Glossybox, which you can order from the comfort of your own sofa. For just £10, she could have the brand’s latest beauty box delivered to her door (full of new industry releases from a range of exciting brands). Or how about paying £8.50 per month for the rest of the year so she gets them until May 2021?

If she’s a lover of food and drink (aren’t we all?) she’ll adore this afternoon tea hamper from Selfridges. Alternatively, treat her to a date night curry subscription box to spice up her weekends (quite literally), a coffee subscription from the amazing Pact Coffee or this trio of exceptional sparkling wines.

Scroll further and you’ll find a luxurious self care bundle from Selfridges, a gin-themed puzzle to keep her entertained, a personalised Soho House dressing gown for her to live in and a letterbox flower bouquet from Bloom & Wild. A fail safe gift for anyone.

Here are the best birthday gifts for her.
