Send Cards to Your BFFs

Nothing boosts a spirit like an unexpected gesture of goodwill. Spend time this week reaching out and supporting not only your own circle of family and friends, but also communities and causes in need.

How special is it to receive a surprise card? Give that feeling to someone in need of a pick-me-up, or to someone else just because. Record a personalized video and upload it to any free card for a bonus surprise. You can send the card via text or email, without even having to leave your house.

Whether it’s a birthday party or an activism event, make your next event count by dedicating it to a cause in need. Guests can contribute meaningful dollars to support action for your cause of choice in lieu of typical gifts. 100% of guest donations go to the cause; Evite never takes a fee.

Party for a Cause

Surprise a Stranger with a Kind Gesture

A small gesture goes a long way toward lifting someone’s spirits. For a thoughtful activity with the kids, put together care packages for people you appreciate, like your building manager, local market workers, and small business owners. Or, spend a crafternoon making signs with positive messages to hang in your window for passersby to see.

Pitch Camp Stay-at-Home in Your Backyard

This week, we’re celebrating the people who have always supported you in return: whoever you call “family.” Recreate a traditional camping weekend on your own property, and see your home with fresh eyes!

Set up a physically distanced campsite with neighbors in your backyard, or bring the great outdoors inside for a living room or garage campout. Pitch a traditional tent or glamp with a pillow fort, depending on your campout vibe. Gather around in a big circle, toast hot dogs and s’mores, and share scary stories for the ultimate, nostalgic camping experience.

Gather the entire family on video chat for a virtual talent show. Have family members, especially the kids, take turns performing a talent or telling their favorite stories about family members. If your family is all about the laughs, share some jokes over a roasting (then toasting) hour.

Create a Family Memory Book

Host a Family Reunion from Anywhere

There’s no time like summertime to bask in the simple pleasures of life. Brighten up this week by bringing back these timeless activities, with a few twists, that will make you feel like a kid again.

Summer calls for a family reunion, with whoever it is you call family. Celebrate virtually to include family near and far with ease, and dig up old photos and home videos to share in a slide deck. Gathering a more intimate group in person? Spread outdoors for a BBQ and play classic games like a potato sack race or cornhole.

Throwback to the classics: slip n’ slides, kiddie pools, and bubble wands! Invest in these necessities to enjoy in your backyard or on a rooftop all summer long, preferably with an ice cream sandwich in hand. No outdoor space? Host a nostalgic movie marathon instead, full of summer favorites like Grease and The Parent Trap.

Rediscover Nostalgic Summer Faves

Celebrate with a Parade Party

Not sure how to celebrate a loved one? Ask a group of family and friends to “parade” past the guest of honor’s home in decked-out cars, honking and shouting! Or, visit the guest of honor’s home to draw chalk pictures and messages along the sidewalk for them as a sweet surprise.

Organize a Baked Good Exchange

Whether it’s the best chocolate chip cookie recipe or an in-depth history lesson, sometimes our greatest resource for learning is just one friend away. Engage your friend group this week with these interactive activities that encourage sharing knowledge with each other.

There’s nothing better than a care package—especially when it’s edible. Ask everybody in your family or friend group, including the kids, to whip up something tasty and easily portable, then drop it off on someone’s doorstep (or the post office). Send a card to let the recipient know a special treat has arrived, and include the recipe inside so the exchange continues all summer long!

Take advantage of time at home to commit to a book club. Good news: it works well, if not better, virtually. Choose a book, then gather weekly over video chat to discuss with friends near and far. Strapped for time? Swap books for something more manageable: podcasts, articles, or even a docuseries. To encourage engagement, pick content that speaks to a topic your friends are passionate about right now. For a kid-friendly spin, host a weekly reading circle.

Create Your Own Take on Book Club

Party with the Pros

Discover hidden talents among your own friend group. Ask a friend with a special talent or expertise to guide your gang through a personal tutorial (like cooking or crafting) or speak on a topic of interest (like culture or science). To ensure every friend gets a chance to shine, send an invitation each week and rotate activity leaders. Prefer to splurge? Split the cost of hiring a professional for a private class.

Host a Front Yard BBQ

Summer heating up? Keep cool and kick off the month of July with these distanced, afternoon-to-evening gatherings you can host on your own property.

Sun’s out, buns out! Bring the backyard barbecue to your front yard this year. For a physically distanced take on your traditional cookout, invite friends and neighbors to bring their own food and lawn chairs, and spread out across an open space in your front yard.

There’s no better way to wind down a hot day than with an evening beer tasting. Ask friends to bring their own choice of bottled beers that you can wipe down before distributing. Then, enjoy your flight while rating and guessing favorites. Not a fan of beer? Try cider or even sweet tea.

BYOB for a Beer Tasting

Watch a Movie Under the Stars

Popcorn, please! Take the family to the local drive-in, and if you’re lucky, catch a double feature. No drive-ins nearby? Project a movie onto your garage door and invite friends and neighbors to bring their own blankets and folding chairs to spread out across the driveway. Create individually packaged snack bags, or encourage guests to bring their own snacks to munch on.

Set Up a Picnic Party

This week is all about reinvention. From backyard picnics to street chalk games, give old summer trends and possessions new looks by adding fun and simple twists together.

Pack your baskets for a picnic! Bring easily portable food items, like sandwiches, watermelon, or pasta salad, to your local park and dine on the grass. Not ready to wrangle the family outside? Host a picnic in your own backyard or living room by laying out a blanket and decorating with flowers and fairy lights.

Take hopscotch up a notch by creating a chalk version of your favorite board game on the street, like Monopoly or Candyland. Building the game is an activity in itself, but kids can also play it day after day once it's complete. If you’re able, draw the game in your front yard, so neighbors can drop by and play anytime. Go the extra mile by making your own chalk with powdered plaster, paint, and water.

Play Street Chalk Games

Tie Dye Your Wardrobe

Totally bored of your closet? Sift through your wardrobe and set aside any old or plain items, then ask friends to join you for a tie-dying session! You can tie-dye any clothing article, from T-shirts to scarves and even socks. When you’re done, donate any of the untouched items, or swap them with friends.

Throw a Boozy Donut Brunch

It’s everybody’s favorite theme this week: food! From decorating desserts to sipping rosé, these virtual-friendly activities are sure to satisfy your social cravings and your stomach.

What pairs better together than a strawberry frosted donut + mimosa? Or maybe a chocolate creme donut + Irish coffee? Instead of your average weekend brunch, create a display or list of donuts and booze, then challenge your gang – virtually or distanced – to pair up the best match made in donut heaven.

Mirror, mirror, on the wall, whose cake is the prettiest of them all? Deliver store-bought cakes and the same decorating supplies to each participant’s house, then hop online and set the timer for a virtual cake decorating contest. Vote to crown a cake champion, and as a bonus, present them with a bake shop gift card.

Host a Cake Decorating Contest

Wine Down at a Front Yard Wine Night

For the love of wine and cheese! Invite guests to wine down with you at dusk over some sips and bites. Encourage everyone to bring their own choice of wine and a personal container of charcuterie and cheese to avoid sharing food, then spread out across your front lawn or driveway.

Give Back with a Dance-a-thon

Pump up your endorphins with this week’s ideas for adding a little pep to your step. Exercise is a great way to improve your general well-being – and it’s much more fun when disguised as a group activity.

Dance it out for a cause in need. Here’s how it works: participants seek donation pledges from family and friends, then come together to dance for as long as they can to secure the money – sometimes even up to 24 hours. Host this as a virtual dance party or as a distanced event in the park. Either way, you can collect donations for your cause directly in your invitation using Evite Donations™.

If you haven’t had karaoke night during quarantine yet (quaraoke?), you’re missing out. Gather music-lovers online for a fun, perhaps even cathartic, virtual karaoke night. Simply queue up your favorite songs, share lyrics on the screen, and belt it out. To get extra festive, ask friends to dress up and award prizes for the best (and worst) singers.

Sing Your Heart Out at Karaoke

Get Active with a Fitness Challenge

Challenge your group to a week-long fitness challenge. Commit to gather every day for virtual workouts, whether they’re yoga videos on YouTube or a live dance workout on Instagram. Once your fitness crew completes the challenge, send a card to your friends and family announcing your achievement and asking them to keep the momentum up by participating next week!
