Christmas is approaching, but the pandemic situation is still present. This means that this 2020 we will have to adapt our parties to safety rules to avoid more infections.
This doesn’t mean that we have to stop enjoying Christmas, there are still ways to celebrate it (always following the recommendations) and most importantly, there are still ways to show your loved ones that you love them.

You can decide how much money to spend, from 15 to 200 dollars. The person who receives the gift card will be able to add the code to their account (if they don’t have an account, they will have to create a new one) and they will see a balance with the money received.
You can purchase Netflix gift certificates through their website.

A Christmas basket is always good, especially if it includes rich products to enjoy at Christmas such as sausages, wine, nougat or champagne.
