Let’s Do Birthday’s the Right Way

Every birthday is worth celebrating! Whether it’s a milestone birthday or falls somewhere in between, the people in your life deserve to know that you care. And one of the ultimate ways to tell them as much is by spending some quality time together. After a year of quarantine and lackluster celebrations, it’s time to kick things up a notch. That is, festive gatherings with all the frills! If you’re looking for a way to showcase just how much a friend or family member means to you, here are a few ideas as to how you can celebrate their birthday:

  • Brunch or Dinner: It’s always a treat to be taken out to eat, whether the destination of choice is casual or formal. Following the pandemic, it will be a great chance to catch up on one another’s life and make plans for the future.
  • Surprise Decor: A colorful and cheery room is always fun to walk into on your birthday! If you can get access to someone’s private space, whether it be their home or an office cubicle, consider decorating a little bit.
  • Plan an Outing: Some people will prefer to spend one-on-one time doing a specific activity. In which case, we recommend playing into their hobbies or interests. This could be a day hike, kayaking, painting, or a variety of other activities
  • Flowers: Men and women both love receiving flowers! Seriously, by the man in your life a bouquet. Fresh flowers are a beautiful and thoughtful way to say ‘Happy Birthday’. Plus they double as temporary home decor. 

In the event that you can’t meet your friend or family member for this exciting occasion, why not send a personalized gift instead? Our inventory includes a range of unique and useful gifts suitable for both men and women. Here are some of our current favorites!
