It’s close to a full year since the coronavirus began to make its first massive changes to our way of life here in the UK, which means we’re getting to the stage where almost every person on earth has had to consider their local or national restrictions in their birthday celebrations. And in the current lockdown, all that can be particularly stressful for a little girl who understandably wants to have fun with her friends.
As parents ourselves here at the Sparkle Club, we understand that all too well – so if you’re thinking about getting your little girl a pair of sparkly shoes or something from the gifts we offer, we think you’ll be interested in our brand new gift wrapping service!
What does our gift-wrapping service involve?
Essentially, with the restrictions limiting non-essential travel across the UK, we know how tricky it’s become to get your present to a special little girl on her birthday. So, we’ve worked out a way to make that easier for you.
Now when you order something from us, you can choose the option to have it individually gift-wrapped by our staff here at the Sparkle Club, complete with a printed card with a message of your choice inside. Just let us know the wording of the message you want to include in it, and then we can ship it straight to her door, ready for her to open on her birthday morning.
This saves you the time and hassle of wrapping it and sending it off yourself, while ensuring that her presents get to her on time – giving her plenty of reason to smile on what might be a slightly peculiar day!
Our favourite lockdown birthday ideas
Of course, just because her birthday has to be different this year, that doesn’t mean it can’t be enjoyable. We know it can be tough for little girls not to see their friends on their birthday, so we’ve had a whip round the Sparkle Club HQ, and picked out three of our favourite lockdown birthday ideas to mark this very special occasion!
A legend in the baking
Let’s be honest, cake is an easy way to a child’s heart. (And if we’re brutal in our honesty, it’s the same for most adults, too.) If you’re a dab hand with flour and eggs and butter, you might want to try some more creative baking ideas, such as a home-made cake in the shape of her favourite fictional character. If she enjoys getting creative in the kitchen too, you can even make it into a fun parent-child activity on the day – and best of all, you both get to eat the delicious results!
With all the on-again, off-again restrictions of the past year, for most parents cinema trips aren’t nearly as common as they used to be – and maybe your little girl is sorely missing the experience too. So why not do everything you can to recreate it? You don’t need a screen that’s taller than a building – maybe a bit of rearranging when it comes to furniture, turn the lights down low, and have some of popcorn, sweet treats and a fizzy drink or two on hand. And obviously, she gets to choose the film!
Have a spa day
This one remains a popular option for us adult ladies, so it stands to reason that it will be for smaller girls too! All of us enjoy some luxury now and then, so if your little girl is a fan of manicures, pedicures and luxurious soft towels, why not go for gold? Remember, nothing necessarily has to be to a professional standard – the most important thing is for her to feel loved and pampered, and you don’t need any specialist skill for that!
And if you’re looking for some birthday gift inspiration, we’ve got a few great ideas on our post about new Gift Sets from the Sparkle Club! They’re just a few of our favourite suggestions – feel free to take a look at the rest of our gift sets, and you may well find some of your own. If you’re looking for any advice or you’re searching for something in particular, don’t hesitate to let us know by giving us a call on 01254 296 554, and we’d love to see what we can do to help.
