VinUnians' bucket list on Vietnamese Family Day

Vietnamese Family Day is just around the corner, and it’s the perfect time to show some love and appreciation for the amazing people who support us every day. Whether your family is near or far, there are plenty of ways to let them know how much they mean to you. Here are five simple and heartfelt ideas to celebrate this special day.

For those lucky enough to have their families in Hanoi, why not take a break from campus life and spend an evening at home? A cozy dinner with your family can be the perfect way to reconnect and enjoy some quality time together. Imagine sitting around the dining table, sharing stories and laughter over a delicious homemade meal. It’s these moments that create lasting memories and strengthen the bond with your loved ones. You get to catch up on each other's lives, share your experiences from university, and perhaps even get some valuable advice and support. The warmth of home and the love of your family can be incredibly refreshing, and it's a wonderful way to remind them how much they mean to you.

If your family lives far away, don’t worry – you can still make their day special! A heartfelt appreciation message goes a long way. Take a few minutes to write a sincere note expressing your gratitude and love. Think about all the ways your family has supported you, and let them know how much you appreciate their efforts. To make it even more special, book a bouquet of flowers or a thoughtful gift to be delivered to their doorstep. Flowers can brighten up their day, and a small gift can show that you are thinking of them, even from afar. Add an appreciation note to let them know you’re thinking of them. It’s a small gesture that can bring a big smile to their faces and remind them of your love.

Nowadays technology has made it easier than ever to stay connected with family, no matter the distance. Schedule a video call and gather everyone for a virtual family reunion. You can set aside some time to catch up, share updates about your life at VinUni, and hear all about what’s been happening back home. You can play games, share updates, or even cook and eat dinner together over the call. Seeing each other’s faces and hearing their voices can bring comfort and joy, making the miles between you seem a little shorter. It’s a great way to maintain a strong connection and make your family feel involved in your life, even when you’re far away.

Also, why not get creative and put together a family scrapbook? Collect photos, mementos, and little notes that capture your favorite family moments. You can make it a digital scrapbook if that’s easier. Share it with your family members and encourage them to add their own memories. It’s a fun project that can bring you all closer and provide a beautiful keepsake to look back on. You can include pictures from family vacations, holidays, or just everyday moments that are special to you. This project can help you appreciate the wonderful times you've shared and look forward to making more memories together.

Remember, Family Day is all about celebrating the love and support of our families. No matter how you choose to show your appreciation, the most important thing is to let your family know how much they mean to you.
