Gifts to Buy For Someone Who Is In Hotel Quarantine
With a surge in COVID-19 cases yet again, there are many people who are unfortunately going to have to spend some time in hotel lockdown. Being cooped up in a hotel room for 14 days leaves plenty of room for boredom, anxiety, and depression, but there are things friends, family members, and loved ones can do to make things better. Sending gifts to someone who is in quarantine is a nice way to help make the isolation better and let them know that they are never far from your thoughts.
Flower and Plant Arrangements
Botanical arrangements have always been a time-honoured way of letting someone know that you wish them well and are thinking about them, and for this reason they function very well as a gift to buy for someone who is in hotel quarantine. Whether they are fresh bouquets or a beautiful artificial one, these kinds of gifts will brighten up the boring hotel room decor.
There are several kinds of botanical arrangements on Artisan Collective Australia, including this gorgeous artificial succulent arrangement by Bloominbee. After quarantine is over, your loved one can take it home with them to decorate their living space. A terrarium is also a great gift to buy for someone that’s in hotel quarantine as they are tasteful, add colour to their surroundings, and are incredibly easy to look after. A DIY terrarium kit like this one from Two Fish & me provides the activity of putting the terrarium kit together in addition to its pleasing aesthetic.
Aromatherapy has long been a way to give a room or home a sense of relaxation and peace, and anyone who is in hotel quarantine will need both of those things in abundance. Aromatherapy candles are a wonderful gift as they not only provide lovely scents but also create a bit of ambience. The candles made by Delight Homewares are natural soy wax and contain lead-free cotton wicks and high quality fragrance oils. The Lychee and Peony Luxury Scented Candle provides a heavenly aroma and is good for 48 hours of burning time.
Fun and Calming Activity Projects
One of the best ways to pass the time while in quarantine is to do an activity that keeps you focused and relaxed. Fortunately there are an abundance of those, so choose something you think your friend or loved one will enjoy and gift it to them during their hotel stay. Adult colouring books are more popular than ever, and putting together puzzles can help pass the long hours. If the person that is quarantined has a hobby that you know about, gift them something related to it, such as yarn and needles if they are a knitter. Diamond art kits also became very popular when the pandemic first hit and they would also be a great gift to buy for someone who is in hotel quarantine.
DIY craft kits are another great ways to pass time, and there are plenty out there to choose from! DIY cross stitch kits are easy, fun ways to keep occupied, and a great one to start with is the Splendid Fairy-Wren by Craft Make Do. The kit includes everything you need to start and finish the product: A colour chart and instructions, DMC stranded cotton, 14 count Aida, and a cross stitch needle.
Another great DIY quarantine gift idea is a clay planter for your plants at home. KJE clay has a buff clay leggy planter DIY kit that provides you with the clay needed, chamois cloth to smooth out all the unwanted bumps, a trimming wire, and a skewer. Once finished, you'll have a lovely planter handcrafted by you for your favourite plants at home!
Skincare and Beauty Products
Pamper the person in quarantine with a gift of skincare and beauty products. During their 14 day stay at a hotel, they can sample some wonderful natural products like the Strong and Mindful Box from The Purity Project. This kit contains cleaners, face washer, and other self-love items.
The Pink Pamper Gift Set by Mei The Pink Pamper Gift Set by Mei & Co. is another great hotel quarantine gift idea. It has eye cream, peptide cream and luxury clay soaps, making it the perfect way to give your quarantined friend or loved one a spa day without having to leave the hotel room.
Products for Relaxation, Detoxing, and Revitalization
All aspects of self care are important in times of duress, and being in hotel quarantine means that self care is incredibly important. The Self Love Care Pack by Wellness Lane provides you with several ways to pamper yourself, including a geranium, ylang-ylang, and rose essential oil infused shower steamer that can help you unwind. Also included in this care pack are self affirmation cards, a combination of pure Epsom salts and Himalayan pink salt for a long and luxurious detox bath session.
Spiritual Soaks has some 100% vegan, crystal infused bath soaks that provide a variety of holistic effects. Each of their unique blends features essential oils, magnesium chloride, herbs, flowers, and crystals. Some of their bath soaks will let not only relax you, but also help with any soreness or stiffness you might have. Some of their other crystal bath soaks serve to energize and motivate, which makes them great gifts for people who are having trouble getting energy and motivation during their hotel quarantine stay.
Help Make Quarantine More Tolerable
14 days can be a very long time when you are cooped up with nothing to do or look at. To make it easier on the individual who is in lockdown, consider some of the gift ideas listed above. Pampering them with beauty products, enjoyable activities, or lovely botanical arrangements will let them know that you're thinking of them and will go a long way toward making their quarantine period more tolerable.
