Go out for a meal with family and friends

If you’re looking to spend some more quality time with your loved ones, then it’s a great idea to organise a family dinner or with friends if your family don’t live nearby. There are plenty of options from pub grub to a fancy restaurant.

Make sure that when it comes to booking your meal, you’re doing it in advance. A lot of places nowadays will book up fairly quickly, especially as many people love to eat out rather than cook on a Friday or Saturday night.

If you’ve got a big group, then it’s worth booking well in advance and taking deposits if they’re needed to ensure people commit to going.

Book a day off work for a lazy day at home

How does a lazy day at home sound? It’s something so simple but an activity that would really be needed if you’re feeling overworked and burnt out currently.

Taking a day off from work is always a lovely treat to give yourself and it can also be bliss to just spend that time in your home too. Consider what you want to do during the day and when you want to take time off. It might be best to opt for a Friday or Monday, that way you get yourself a long weekend.

Take a last-minute trip abroad

Fancy doing something a little spontaneous? If you’ve got some holiday time to work with and you’ve got a bit more of a budget for your birthday this year, why not take a last-minute trip abroad? A long weekend or just a day trip somewhere close by in another country could be just what’s needed to switch off from normal life.

There are plenty of places that can be visited in a day thanks to the transport available nowadays. 

Do a bit of retail shopping

A bit of retail shopping never goes underappreciated – unless that is you hate shopping. If your wardrobes are looking a little bare or you’ve outgrown some of the clothing you’ve had for a while now, then a bit of retail shopping will go down a treat.

This is something you can make into a day trip, where you treat yourself out to lunch and dinner too perhaps. 

Try something you’ve never done before

Finally, if you’re looking to do something adventurous, do something you’ve never done before. From wine-tasting activities to rock climbing and even sky-diving, do something different.

These ideas will make sure that you’re maximising every birthday and celebrating properly!
