The ongoing pandemic may have translated into cancelled flights, parties, and annual reunions for many across the country — but that doesn’t mean we have to settle for anything less than festive this holiday season. A few key purchases can go a long way in making the season all the more merry for your friends and family, as they host and celebrate from the safety and comfort of their own homes. It’s time to consider the remote host gift.
If you usually attend a big holiday bash at your favorite cousin’s house, send them something sweet ahead of your Zoom party this year. A thoughtful present is also a nice way to thank that friend who organizes a big virtual New Year’s Eve party. Just as you might bring a nice bottle of booze or fresh flowers to your host at an IRL gathering, a little extra effort can make a socially distanced soirée feel even more special.
That’s why we teamed up with Grand Marnier to cull together a list of the best remote hosting gifts. These items are much-appreciated any year, but in 2020, they’re sure to prove even more useful than ever, helping your loved ones to connect, celebrate, and, most importantly, to stay safe.
