How to Stay High-Touch in a Low-Touch Moment

It’s more important than ever to stay connected with our friends and family, and social distancing has inspired us to find new ways—and even dust off some old ones—to do exactly that. Here are some ideas for staying in touch with your loved ones while staying safe.

Throw a Virtual Party
Thanks to video chat and conferencing technology, there are endless ways to stay connected virtually. Choose your favorite board or card game and host a game night. You can even throw a dance party and spin your favorite tunes for your favorite people. If you prefer something low key, organize a weekly book club. Or just keep it simple and brew a cup of java for a coffee date with friends.

Use a company like ZOOM to get the party started.

Send a Seed & Grow Kit
Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned green thumb, this is the perfect activity to share with others. Buy a seed-and-grow kit for yourself and one for a friend. Plant them at the same time and watch them grow together by sharing tips and photo updates. You’ll not only stay connected; you’ll enjoy seeing your plant—and your relationship—blossom! ­

Try a company like BURPEE to see the variety of flowers and plants.

Send an At Home Spa Day Kit
Give the gift of relaxation to someone you care about with a basket full of spa goodies, from soaps and salt scrubs to bath bombs and scented candles. You can even include your favorite spa music playlist to create an immersive experience.

We love the gifts from Caudalie from Paris.

Catch Up with a Call
Remember the telephone? Before video chats and texting, we actually used to talk—sometimes for hours—on the phone. Give a friend or family member a call and find out how they’re doing. Sometimes all it takes is a simple check-in call to make their day.

Write a Letter
This old-fashioned, tried-and-true way of communicating still works—and it’s sure to please. Send a handwritten letter or card and let people know you’re thinking of them. If you have little ones at home, encourage them to participate by creating a handmade card for family or friends. This is a great way to keep in touch that doesn’t require technology. Besides, who doesn’t love receiving a letter that isn’t a bill or junk mail?
