8 simple ways to delight and celebrate people we care about

Celebrating with the people in our lives is one way we foster and affirm our connection to one another. So whether it’s a birthday, anniversary, graduation, or another fun milestone, feel free to amp up the joy! Here are a few ideas:

  • Cook them something delicious.
  • Take them out for a favorite special treat.
  • Buoy their heart with a balloon bouquet.
  • Enjoy good conversation and laughter with an informal get-together.

If distance makes an in-person celebration difficult, you could:

  • Dress up for a celebratory video call. It can be fancy attire, silly, or a theme you know the guest of honor would enjoy. Have fun with it!
  • Use a fun filter to send them a photo or video of yourself and a celebratory message.
  • Think ahead and send them a handwritten card, note, or letter via snail mail.
