Random Ramblings - Sending Gifts During A Pandemic?

* This is a sponsored post. All opinions are 100% mine.

Unless you've been living under a rock, then you already know about the world's pandemic that has made the shelves at Walmart, Target, and grocery stores bare. Literally, everything has been canceled — television shows, movies, sporting events, etc. Many people are now out of work thanks to the many business closing and the falling stock market. Times are definitely tough and extremely stressful for us all.

I'm the type of person who never misses a birthday for friends or family, even if they live miles and miles away from my location. As of late, I've been worried about a friend's upcoming birthday. The good news is that despite the epidemic the United Postal Service, UPS, and FedEx are all still operational here in the USA, which means we can still order anything from web stores, like Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Walmart, Target, Best Buy, etc. So sending a birthday gift across the country can still be done.

Depending on where you live, some smaller businesses are still doing local deliveries. If you wanting to get the best flower delivery in new jersey to someone special, you might still be able to, but double-check with the stores before placing a flower delivery order just to be on the safe side. It'll all depend on what the limitations have been put on the city or state. Additionally, you can just check the store's social media accounts to see what services are currently available or unavailable.

Personally, I have no clue what to get my friend for her birthday. I could send flowers from Plantshed, a book from Barnes & Noble, or a coffee sampler from Bones Coffee Company. Or I could spend several hours looking for a gift on Amazon.

(FYI: It takes me forever to make a gift decision!).

Whatever I decided to do, I'll have to do it soon as my friend's birthday is near the end of the month, which is fast approaching.

Oh, the dilemmas!
