Any bright ideas for Grandson’s first birthday?

Our first grandchild celebrates his first birthday at the end of this month and, the way things are going, it doesn’t look as if we’ll be seeing him to mark the occasion.
Any ideas for ordering/sending/organising something to make up for not being there? Family video call of course (they’re 100 miles away) but looking for something physical to turn up on the day.

We gave all 3 of our DGC a fruit tree (along with other clothes/toys) for their 1st birthdays. Now they are 11, 12 and 13 they are still so proud of their trees a plum, a pear and an apple, that no one else is allowed to pick the fruit and I and other Granny feel so privileged when we are honoured to be presented with some of the fruit.

Lovely idea @Granny23 - just thinking, glad all three trees thrived!

Dedicate a tree in one of the Woodland Trust woods.
