I get it. This is gonna be a rather different holiday season. Whether it’s due to social distancing or simply because you cannot move around, gifting others with actual, physical presents won’t be as easy as it used to be.

What about surprising that Greece fan friend in your life with an inspiring set of images, stories, and even recipes filmed in the actual place of their dreams? Check these virtual Greek presents.
