Want to come up with a great gift for your friends, something that is out of the ordinary? You can go for the typical gift cards, cash, jewelry or clothing. Why not get your friends truly creative birthday presents? There’s probably, at least, one idea among these that you would like to give to your pal this year.
A good gift idea can be to pick up a pass for the local entertainment center that has laser tag, miniature golf, bumper cars and the like. Many adults love to feel like a kid again, and around their birthday is the perfect time to make your friend feel “young at heart.”
Similar ideas include tickets to an “Escape Room” experience, movie tickets, gift card to a miniature golf course, trampoline park passes.
You know those free voucher books you likely made for your family when you were a kid? Well, you can make a more adult version for your friend. “Free Spa Day,” “I’ll Cook Dinner for You”, and “One Favor from Me” are some possibilities to include in it. You can include some silly things for a laugh, as well.
You can go through a service that puts together gift baskets, or you can make one yourself. Pick up a simple wicker basket from a home goods store. Then, put in items that are customized to his or her liking. You can use a theme to base it on, or just select random things. Some common ideas that may be fun are magazines, Mad Libs books, candies, body spray, bath bombs or other bath accessories, DVD’s, tea bags or loose leaf tea, and craft supplies.
Paint ‘n’ Sip
Though there usually are dates when these events are held, there are companies that do parties. The members of the group will learn a few basic art concepts and then have a chance to each complete their own piece of art. You all will be able to enjoy a nice adult drink while you work on your paintings.
Many higher end department stores, makeup boutiques and even mall kiosks do partial or full makeovers. Bring your buddy in for the full treatment on the day of or near their birthday for a fun experience. Most people don’t take the time out to do something nice and do much self-care, so your friend is sure to really appreciate it.
