Best Quarantine Birthday Ideas


Many people will be celebrating their birthdays in quarantine this year, but that doesn’t mean quarantine birthday ideas can’t be fun! Don’t be fooled, you’ll have to get creative. But being confined to your house during the birthday festivities is a fantastic excuse to get imaginative with your celebrations. After all, Shakespeare wrote King Lear in isolation during the plague, so surely you can come up with some super sick birthday ideas! Still not convinced? Here, let us give you a little nudge in the right direction.


Party down by partying in!

Unfortunately, a massive house party with all your friends and family is a no-go during quarantine. You can’t fill a bin with thirty litres of cocktail (a Bina Colada as they’re known) and have every work colleague, high school chum and partner’s best friend’s dog around for a pool party, but that doesn’t mean you can’t throw a little house party for yourself! If all you have to work with is your house/apartment and your roommates, then you’re in business. If you can’t go out partying, you bring the party to you. 

Pick at least three rooms. The living room, a bedroom and a study/spare room tend to be the staples. From there, pick a theme for each room based off a bar or club. For instance, transform the study into a whiskey bar, the bedroom into a cocktail lounge, and the living room into the local music pub. Or, if you wanted to really go el authentico, get the gang together and transform one of the rooms into a local pizzeria! Our live classes online can show you and the whole house how to make beautiful traditional Italian pizza! Live music may be hard to come by, but homemade Italian pizza is easy, and absolutely bellissimo

With a bit of money down on booze to match each theme and some decorative touches, you can go on a pub crawl without even leaving your house! Each “bar” can have its own drinks station, it’s own music and it’s own snacks, thereby giving you the chance to go out on the town, without ever leaving the house! Yes, it’s obviously not perfect, but if you’re stuck looking for things to do at home, creating your own bar scene in your house is a great way to get crafty and imaginative whilst still celebrating your birthday! You’ve got the time, so you may as well. 

Pamper yourself, darling.

It’s your birthday. Take a day off. Yes, we understand that you probably already have several days off a week - maybe all of them in fact - and this doesn’t initially make sense, but birthday present ideas need to go above and beyond in 2020, and so yes, you need a day off. You need twelve hours where you don’t clean the house, you don’t go buying essentials and, for the love of God, you don’t listen to the American President. You need quarantine birthday ideas that focus solely on the birthday boy or girl. How you ask? 

Pamper yourself, darling. You’ve earnt it.

Making your birthday, or the birthday of a loved one a dedicated “self-care” day is a fantastic way to not just stick a flag in the ground and acknowledge your birthday, but an important tool in keeping sane. By breaking up the days, you can help avoid feeling stagnant when stuck in quarantine. So run yourself a nice hot bath, light a few candles, eat a mountain of comfort food and just do “you.” 

If you’re looking for a fun place to start, our soap making classes are one of our best pampering things to do at home. Making your own line of soaps will keep you feeling fresh for months and, with most ingredients easily purchased at the supermarket, you can continue making soap long after our workshop is finished. Our quarantine coffee scrub class is also a sure-fire winner when it comes to methods of self-love. You’ll learn multiple styles of scrubs using various ingredients, giving your skin a healthy glow, and helping you take care of yourself. This is a great gift for you or one of the best birthday ideas for someone looking to really take some “me-time” in all this me-time. 

Express Yourself

Searching for birthday present ideas in quarantine awkward, we know. Whether you're looking for presents for yourself, birthday party ideas for a flatmate or just something simple and easy to show someone you care when stuck in isolation, ClassBento’s live classes online can help. Much like a designated self-care day, giving yourself room to express yourself freely is very important when it comes to staying in touch with your creativity and individuality, during self-isolation. 

Learning to paint is a fantastic way to express yourself. Clear the dining room or study, set yourself up a little mini-painting studio and allow yourself to go there whenever you feel it take you. One of the hassles to learning to paint is how much accoutrement is required, but with our live classes online you can have everything you need sent directly to your door. 

This may sound counterintuitive but, after starting to paint, don’t pack the space down. Allow yourself to have a small, semi-permanent creative space in your house that you can retreat to when quarantine feels overwhelming. Not only will you receive enough equipment and training in ClassBento’s online art workshops and Craft Boxes, but art stores are still offering delivery at reduced rates, so running out of equipment isn’t an issue. 

Using art to get through a difficult time is so effective, art therapy is used to treat people with severe PTSD and depression. It’s a superb medium for expressing thoughts and feelings that you may not be able to articulate, making it one of the most wellbeing-focused birthday present ideas in quarantine.

If you really want to lean into it, go buy yourself a baggy art smock and a beret, so you can feel like a true post-modern artistic juggernaut. 

Coming up with quarantine birthday ideas isn’t easy, we grant you. But hopefully, you’ve found something here that’ll give you an idea of where to start. Don’t hesitate to combine the ideas, either! Maybe your self-care doesn’t look like a bathtub ladened with candles, and perhaps your idea of hitting the town isn’t a pub crawl. But whatever - and however - you choose to ring in yours or your mate’s new year on earth, ClassBento has quarantine birthday ideas to get you started, and make the present hunt a little easier.
