Are you having trouble deciding on what to do for your birthday? As we get older, coming up with ideas gets harder. Some people choose to party the night away. Others turn up at work as they usually would, not seeing a need to go all out. But the truth is that birthdays do not lose their magic. And it only fits that you find a way to celebrate the far that you have come. Maybe you could get yourself an Eternity rose as a gift to cherish for the years to come. Or you could come up with a theme for old times’ sake. Doing dinner or grabbing a drink after work will not cut it if you have been doing this for a while. If you do not want to leave the house and still want to have fun, here are possible ideas for your next birthday:
Enjoy a Relaxed Day
Do you love staying in and having someone do all the heavy lifting? If this sounds like you, maybe a spa day is what you need. Choose a spa you like and set out the treatments you would like. Luckily, some services offer home spa treatments, and you would not have to leave the house.
All you need to do is to call up your friends and have them meet you at your place. You can sip on drinks as you catch up on movies as someone works on those knots in your back. Doesn’t that sound divine?
Have A Lazy Night In
Suppose it’s not one of the big ones like the big three o, and you want to do something laidback. Maybe you would rather be in your pajamas all night. You can incorporate this into your birthday by having everyone dress up in comfortable wear. They can come in pajamas with overnight bags for a good old sleepover party.
Other than telling scary stories as you would while you were young, you can play board games. There are tons of fun games. And with some good music playing in the background, the fun will not end soon.
Watching movies would also be a great idea. All you have to do is to choose a theme and a period, and you can select a variety from which you can choose. Relaxing as you watch people fall in love or fight wars in space can seldom go wrong.
Let’s suppose you do not want to cook a lot of food that will go to waste. And you do not want to ask your guests to bring food to the party. What can you do? It is quite easy to make cooking fun by coming up with a few recipes that would appeal to everyone. It works great in helping everyone bond as they cut up the ingredients and chat about their interests.
The resultant meal would wreak of love. That is the result of cooking from the heart. If you would rather skip the cooking, here is another idea: eat lots of cake. Instead of making one big cake, have everyone bring a cake they love. Then you can all have fun sampling the different flavors all night. How great would that be!
Also, wine tasting is another excellent idea. Do you love wine but cannot seem to tell what grape variety is in play? If yes, your friends are probably in the same boat. It would thus be a good idea to have a wine-tasting kit that would help you in identifying different wines. You can drink as many varieties as you want, and the night would end with a pleasant buzz.
These ideas are great for when you want to bond with loved ones and still look sharp the day after. Happy birthday!
