I LOVE GIVING UNIQUE BIRTHDAY GIFTS. And, I like to pride myself on being super creative when it comes to all things gift-giving. I mean….I did start a gift company after all! I believe the best gifts are the ones that are personal, that the recipient would never expect, and includes something that they would never buy for themselves, though they would adore. Here are some of my favorite birthday gift ideas for your best friend:
Make a photo album of your best and most memorable photos
Guys – no one prints photos and makes albums anymore, which makes them super special. Add in handwritten notes about your favorite parts about those moments and photos to make this gift extra personal and special. Go grab a cute printed photos as CVS and done Google Photo books, both are so simple and easy and fun to make!
Get them a Cameo of their fave celebrity
This is such a great birthday gift for the friend who doesn’t want more “stuff.” It is SO simple and so, so much fun. I did this for my sister’s engagement, and she freaked out! Cameo is a service where you can have a celebrity shout out to your friend, for a fee of course. Some celebs cost more than other but it is well worth it!
Make a gift bag full of themed items based on a hobby, interest, or where they are in their life, along with a sweet note.
I have been known among my friends for making “kits” for gifts: I would make “30th Birthday Survival” kits, “New Job” kits, “Med School Survival” kits, and even “Breakup Survival” kits – these were the OG Happy Boxes and are what inspired me to start the company! They are super simple to make, and if your friend has an obscure passion or hobby, even better! Find 3-5 things that will help them do their fave hobby or their new life moment better, throw them in a cute gift bag with some tissue paper and a thoughtful note and POOF: a unique, super personal gift that they will LOVE!
No time for #3? Not creative? Your BFF live far away? Welp, ladies, THAT’S why we created Happy Box: So you can build a custom care package full of unique items and ship it right to her door.
It’s super simple: pick a box design (my favorite is our pastel gradient called “sunset”), fill her up with various gifts (I suggest adding the “Brunch” candle and some Raaka chocolate – these are best sellers!), pick a card, type in your note, and our team hand-packs and ships the box out to your friend’s doorstep or office.
