Tips For Spending A Great Birthday Even When You’re All By Yourself

Are you feeling bad about spending your birthday alone? Don’t be! Here’s how you can have a smashing birthday, even all by yourself!


Give Yourself A Day Off

Most of us live pretty predictable lives. Wakeup, rush to get to work or school, rush to finish the task for the day, get home¾and then repeat that cycle. More often than not, life can feel like you’re on a hamster wheel, where you’re constantly running but not getting anywhere. This is especially true if you happen to be on your twenties or thirties; the busiest time of your life. But make your special day different. Get off the hamster wheel…it’s your birthday! Take a day off to spend all on yourself. You can make an itinerary full of things to do, or simply catch up to a little well deserved rest.


Buy Yourself A Gift

If you have a job or presentable bank account, why would you wait for someone else to buy you a gift for your birthday? Buy it yourself. You can spend your birthday walking around and shopping for that special gift, spending a preplanned amount of money on yourself, or even buy your gift online in a trustworthy place like Layby that has almost anything you could want. The important thing is to mark your special day, with a special and tangible token that you can look back on with fondness. Remember, your gift to yourself can even be a meal at an elite restaurant; someplace you wouldn’t normally consider but always wanted to go to. The tangible memory? A selfie with your meal should work quite well…!


Hire Yourself A Gift

When it comes to giving yourself birthday presents, you should also consider intangible things. consider hiring your birthday gift instead of buying it. For example, if you love luxury vehicles or old fashioned open top cars, consider hiring one for the day. Drive around in it, enjoy it to its best. You could even do your grocery shopping in it! If you ’ve been missing your inner child, consider indulging it for the day. Hire a fun house (adult sized) for your backyard, invite a few friends over and have a blast. Don’t want to share? Get an indoor ball pool that you can frolic in all you want!


Pamper Yourself Extravagantly

What better day to choose to pamper yourself than your birthday? Let go of your diet for the day and give into your cravings. Indulge your taste buds. Make an appointment with a spa or massage parlor and give your whole body a well deserved pampering. You can even have a scented bath (or use a luxury bath bomb) right at home if you choose.


Take A Day Trip To Make Memories On Your Birthday

Tripping by yourself can be pretty fun. You can either choose to trip to a destination you’ve always wanted to go to, or simply wing it and take a road trip; stopping where your mind decides. Doing so in a weekend is ideal, but nothing is stopping you from making it a day trip either.
