As you get older your birthday celebration tends to become a bit blander. But it doesn’t have to. You can keep your birthday exciting by adding a few special birthday traditions.
Getting old is a privilege granted to few. So celebrate your beautiful aging self, and make your day special. Here are a few ideas on how to celebrate your birthday in style.
Treat Yourself to a Spa Day
Your birthday is a special day to celebrate you. Take time to appreciate your body and give it love.
Get a massage, a face mask, a hairstyle, and a mani-pedi. Splurge on whatever you want to make yourself feel beautiful. Attend a workout class, stroll through the park, and meditate.
It’s okay to make time for you. You’re the only thing that’s always going to be in your life. On top of that, taking time to relax actually makes it easier for you to respond to the demands of your daily life.
So get your partner, parent, friend or a babysitter to take care of the kids for a day, and spend time just for you.
Surprise Yourself With Flowers
If no one in your life gets you flowers, get some yourself. That way you can get exactly what you want, and every time you see them it reminds your amazing birthday.
You can make the flowers a special surprise by preordering them for delivery a few months ahead of time.
Treat Yourself to a Shopping Spree
Spice up your wardrobe, get something that makes you feel sexy or splurge on something you’ve had your eye on. Get one or two close friends to go with you, and find something you really enjoy.
Enjoy Lunch With Friends
When we’re busy taking care of our families, homes, and careers, our friendships can get left by the wayside. Set up a lunch date with your friends. Try a new local cafe, a Mexican restaurant, or a coffee shop.
Annual lunch meetups can help you stay in touch with old friends. And it’s a great way to make your birthday celebration extra special.
Make Sure to Budget
Budgeting for a birthday celebration can seem impossible. That’s especially if you try to make it fit with your existing budget for the month.
Instead of trying to cram an entire birthday budget into a month or two, squeeze out a few dollars each month.
Saving $10 to $30 each month gives you $120 to $360 just for you for your special birthday celebration!
The best part about a birthday splurge is knowing you’ve been saving for this, and you can responsibly treat yourself.
Your Birthday Celebration Should be Special to You
Create a special birthday celebration tradition. Do something that’s special and meaningful to you. When you find what you like, do it again next year.
Save up a bit each month to make sure you have enough to splurge, guilt-free, in style on your special day, and enjoy it.
