With my Birthday fast approaching, I’ve been racking my brains for the ultimate lock-down birthday recipe. I thought I’d put together a list of 10 fun, delicious & fabulous birthday ideas for yourself or a loved one. I’ve included local business recommendations within each category as there’s so many amazing offerings at the moment, whether that’s local gift ideas, takeaway food or to die for decorations.
Who doesn’t want to wake up on the morning of their Birthday to a delicious breakfast. Whether you whip up some pancakes for your partner or order a breakfast delivery box for a friend, this is the perfect way to start the day!
Breakfast box recommendations:
A GLASS OF FIZZ
The sound of a popping cork on your Birthday is the perfect way to mark the special occasion. I had seen over on Instagram earlier in the week one of my followers keeps all of her champagne corks in a lovely display jar in the Kitchen and writes on each cork the occasion – not only does it make a lovely shelf filler, but what a lovely Birthday present for someone? I have linked below a lovely Rosé Brut from The Woodchester Valley.
A PAMPER SESSION
Looking & feeling good on your Birthday whether your stuck at home or not is paramount. Starting your day with a bubble bath and a little self pamper session will set the tone for the rest of your day. If you’re looking to send someone a luxurious self-care gift then The Bamford Spa Gift Sets are where you should be looking. Bamford have everything from complete well being hampers to online class passes and skincare essentials.
DECORATE THE HOUSE
Putting up a garland and a few balloons is the perfect way to get in the party spirit AND there is so many gorgeous decorations out there, why wouldn’t you want to decorate?! Etsy is the perfect place to find really gorgeous birthday decorations – send to a friend to make their day!
I don’t think I can name a single person who wouldn’t love to receive a gorgeous bouquet on their Birthday. I have linked The Broadway Florist below as their arrangements are my all time favourite.
I almost forgot the CAKE! What’s a Birthday without cake?! There are so many amazing local bakers it was hard to whittle it down to a few!
