How to support local businesses

Buying from local businesses can be a great way to support your community and find a unique gift. While many businesses have temporarily closed their physical locations, some still offer online shopping, gift cards to use later or new membership or subscription services. If you don’t live near the person you’re sending a gift to, consider calling restaurants or shops near them to inquire about special delivery options.

How to send money

If you have a friend or family member overseas and would like to send money as a gift, using an online money transfer service is one of the simplest ways to do so — and it doesn’t require any physical contact. Other options include a cash transfer, bank transfer and e-wallets like Venmo and PayPal. You can learn more about how to send money during the coronavirus pandemic in our guide.

Bottom line

Picking out the perfect present to send someone doesn’t have to break the bank — after all, it really is the thought that counts. If you’re still searching for that extra-special something, check out our Gift Finder hub for even more gift guides and ideas.
