Keeping track of everyone’s birthday isn’t always easy to do when you have multiple friends and family members to remember across the year. Getting them a last-minute gift card can often feel like the best thing to do when you’re not sure what to get them or you’ve left it a little too late to put some real thought into a present. But it’s always nice to be appreciated, and making people happy on their birthdays is something that anyone can do if they want to. If you want to be everyone’s birthday favourite and to always be prepared then try the following tips.
Deciding what to get people for their birthday can be tough. You don’t want to repeat gifts that you’ve given them before, and you don’t want to get them something generic that you could give to anyone. It might take a bit more effort, but you can really master gift-giving if you pay a little more attention. Listen to the things that they express interest in and the hints that they might give about what they would appreciate receiving. Make notes about what people like and the things they’ve said they would like to buy for themselves.
MAKE CARDS PERSONAL
A birthday card is a simple but thoughtful gesture on a birthday. They’re a great way to remember someone’s birthday, but they can also sometimes be a little impersonal. If you want to make sure your birthday cards are appreciated, look for birthday cards online with a little more of a personal touch. You can find all kinds of card designs on different themes with various text options. You can also personalize cards further by choosing what you want them to say so that the message is truly personal. It’s also helpful to keep a stash of cards so you always have one ready to go.
KEEP A STASH OF EMERGENCY GIFTS
Forgetting someone’s birthday can be easier than you think. Even if you try to keep track of them, not everyone is great with dates and you can get caught up in things that are happening in your life. Rushing to find a last-minute gift can be stressful and you might not have much time. One thing that can help in this situation is to have a stash of emergency gifts that you can use when you forget or don’t have time. It might not always be the most personal gift but if you have a variety of things to choose from, you can match the best gift to the birthday person.
LET THEM EAT CAKE!
If you want to make someone happy on their birthday and potentially be the birthday favourite, one of the things you can do is be the person who takes care of the cake. For many people, it’s the best part of celebrating a birthday. If you’re someone who enjoys baking or you just want to buy someone a cake as a gift, it’s sure to be appreciated. Of course, the best way to nail the cake is to pick flavours and a theme that they will love.
Use these tips to help you be more prepared for everyone’s birthday and you can make sure you always have something wonderful to give them. As well as fast track yourself to being everyone’s birthday favourite.
