We live in a world where geographical distance no longer hampers celebrations, thanks to the digital India push, we have video calling accessibility at our fingertips.

While many individuals living away from their families are accustomed to celebrations – such as birthdays, anniversaries, and festivals on a virtual platform, the restrictions in movement due to the coronavirus threat have hampered the spirit for many unaccustomed to the virtual norm.

Gifts play an important part in brightening celebrations, but how can you make it remarkable and memorable in the current state? While no alternative can match the joy of in-person celebrations, you can surely surprise your father with not so usual gifts in these unprecedented times.

Biographies and memories with e-book

Biographies and memoirs are filled with big characters and personalities we love and follow. If reading the famous biographies like Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson and Long Walk to Freedom by Nelson Mandela is what your father prefers, you can gift him a subscription of Kindle Unlimited. Getting a physical book may not be possible in this lockdown, but they can surely enjoy these e-books of super inspiring biographies on their smartphone and unwind after a long, stressful day.
