Long before social distancing, a friend who lives across the country sent me a care package that contained a book and a thoughtful note. The unexpected thoughtfulness was more touching than many gifts I had received on occasions where they’re expected, like birthdays or holidays. It showed me she cared even when she wasn’t obliged to, and it made me want to do the same for other important people in my life.
When people started to self-isolate, many relationships became long distance. Thinking of the book I received out of the blue, I sent my sisters buttery-soft pajamas to provide some comfort as they self-isolate for who knows how long. In frightening times like these, when physical togetherness isn’t an option, phone calls, video chats, and mailed momentos like cozy pajamas or handwritten notes become paramount.
Here, 17 day-brightening ideas for the special people in your life.
