30 Best Gifts to Participate in National Day of Unplugging

In today's tech-run world, we face digital screens almost 24/7. Being glued to electronic devices is the norm. Scrolling through social media sites is an unspoken addiction and staying connected for work is a must.

With the growing dependence on technology, we often forget to set aside time for ourselves and our loved ones. And whether you notice it or not, this causes stress and takes a toll on your physical health, mental health, and overall well being. 

The National or Global Day of Unplugging, celebrated on the first Friday of March, is the perfect opportunity to take a break from technology for an entire day! This event encourages people to rekindle human connection, improve overall health, and spend quality time alone or with favorite people. 

And because we want you to have a fun and fulfilling Unplugging Day, we curated some of the best gifts you can give to others or yourself to participate in National Day of Unplugging!
