By Iconsolable

BASSETERRE; St. Kitts: AWW! We know many are feeling down and disappointed that they are unable to celebrate one of the most important milestones in their life -their Birthday! The Coronavirus pandemic has put a damper on the plans of so many who would have been looking forward to celebrating. Consequently, we have been under curfews, lockdowns and a state of emergency and we are once again asking ourselves in 2021 as we did in 2020 when will it end?

Nonetheless, despite being unable to celebrate with a bunch of friends at a club, at a crowded bar or themed party with loved ones, there are still many ways you can celebrate safely and have fun.
We came up with 15 alternative ways you can celebrate, and we have included some service providers who can offer these services.

Maybe you can get some Personalized Gifts for all occasions, be it for home use or personal need. In the end, just remember to buy what your heart yearns for or something that’ll be useful.
