Gifts are surprisingly complex and an important part of human interactions, helping to define relationships and strengthen bonds with family and friends. It can simply remind a loved one that you are thinking of them and care about them, it can be used to mark a special date or it can be used as an apology and to rectify a wrongdoing.
A gift received at home, sent with love by a loved one, can turn an ordinary day into an incredible one. Due to the pandemic and social distancing, it is difficult to build or maintain relationships because of the limitations the real world is subject to.
One way to maintain connection is by gift-giving. Even though the social distance is hard to bear, these measures are essential to keep Singapore safe while more people are getting fully vaccinated. So if you want to stay connected with your loved ones without physically meeting them, why not send them a gift to let them know you’re thinking of them?
When physical togetherness is not an option, phone calls, video chats and mailed mementos with a handwritten note – are the way to go.
