5 Ways To Help Someone Feel Extra Special On Their Birthday
My hubby Jake recently had a birthday! We had so much fun celebrating him with a dinosaur birthday party! Typically we don’t do adult b-day parties for each other, but this year with covid and twins…we decided lets have some fun! It was such a fun time, I am so glad we did! Birthdays are such a fun and special time to celebrate! Today I wanted to share 5 ways to help someone feel extra special on their birthday! These are all things we have tried and done over the years and look forward to!
Make Them Their Favorite Breakfast
Start the day off strong with their favorite breakfast! Whether you make it or buy it, either is a great option! Jake is obsessed with a local donut joint that has maple bacon donuts, so that is what he wanted for his breakfast. Something simple like their favorite box of cereal would be fun too. One of my friends Scarlett does funfetti birthday pancakes with a candle on top. I always thought that was a cute idea too! Here is her recipe for those pancakes here.
Add Some Birthday Decor
A little birthday banner or blowing up a few balloons can go a long way! No need to do anything big (I tend to go overboard a lot in this department…hahha) but just a little something to help someone feel special.
Share Why You Love Them
Growing up on someones birthday we would go around the room and each take turns telling the bday person why we loved them. We would all usually get pretty emotional but it was so fun too! Every year on my birthday I honestly looked forward to hearing why everyone loved me! hahaha It was such a special tradition I loved with my family and can’t wait to carry on this tradition with my own little family now. This is a great tradition for parents and kids to hear each other express love and appreciation for one another.
Plan A Special Activity
Think about something special the birthday person has been wanting to do. Is it a place they have wanted to visit? An activity they have been wanting to do? Or something they have really needed help with?!?! Plan something special to do with the birthday person to help them feel super loved! Jake has really wanted to learn how to make candles, so for his birthday we made wood wick soy based candles! It was a fun learning experience for both of us and excited to make more in the future.
Buy Them A New Birthday Outfit
Ok this one may sound cheesy….but it’s really the best! On a birthday it is always fun to wear something new! Get the b-day person a new shirt to open on their birthday to wear! For Jake I got him a Jurassic Park shirt since it went with the theme of the party. Find something you think the b-day person would love and surprise them with it on the morning of their birthday!
