With Phase 2 (Heightened Alert), we can’t have a meal or hang out with them. Why not send a little something instead, from DIY terrariums to cold brew kits to even a virtual message from a cute animal?

As we enter our second week of Phase 2 (Heightened Alert), many of us can admit we’re missing our friends badly. And some of us have resorted to doing something that was pretty popular back during those “circuit breaker” days – sending them little gift packs.

Whether it’s a box of brownies for a missed birthday or just some bubble tea for a midday boost, they’re all gestures to say we’ve been thinking about them and can’t wait until all of this is over.

If you’ve run out of ideas on what to send, no problem – we’ve handpicked a selection of gifts that #supportlocal and wouldn’t empty your wallet. Ranging from DIY sets to yummy desserts, these gifts will guarantee a smile on your friend’s face.

The days do feel longer when we’re just stuck at home with Netflix. With this, your friends can get their hands dirty – and it could be helpful to spruce up their rooms, too. The Teardrop succulent/cacti DIY kit by Craftsforgreen allows your friends to get creative and make their own terrarium in the comfort of their own home. An instruction pack will be given to ensure minimal mess-ups. You can even get one for yourself and do it with your friends over Zoom.

What’s in the box: A geometric teardrop vase, two cacti/succulents, packets of cacti soil, perlite/white crystals mix and pebbles, a plastic spoon, watering syringe, a paper bag and greeting card, as well as instruction and care tips sheet.
