  3. A card from the heart
  4. A telephone call
  5. A gift they will love

A telephone call /zoom call

Work out your timings book it in with the recipient and sped a little connection time with them on their birthday. It will be much appreciated. And help you both feel a lot closer than in physical terms you actually are.
