HuffPost. Celebrate during the pandemic without a store bought gift, says tech startup VidDay
Updated: Apr 15
Buying gifts for family and friends can be tough at the best of times. But when you’ve spent months apart celebrating every birthday and holiday over Zoom, gifting becomes an even bigger challenge.
But you don’t have to spend endless amounts of money on material gifts, says video gift startup VidDay. Instead, create an easy video montage -- the cyber equivalent of an emotional group hug.
According to this HuffPost feature, a VidDay is a great alternative to the usual store bought gift, and here’s why:
Most of us are feeling some degree of Zoom fatigue at this point in the pandemic, so the prospect of spending another holiday awkwardly chatting through the family computer might not be something to look forward to.
However, we’re all still in need of human connection, especially around the holidays.
Take some of the pressure off and create a video that the recipient can view on their own time. Services such as VidDay allow you to collect videos and photos from various participants and then have them edited together.
Encourage people to record heartfelt messages, list why they’re grateful for that person and tell funny stories for a memorable and touching gift.
Whether it’s for a holiday, birthday, retirement, or even niche celebrations like Teacher Appreciation Day -- this tech startup is connecting people across the globe.
