HBD Guide: The 4 Best Ways Make a Birthday Special

It’s never too early to start getting a game plan together for a loved one’s birthday! It’s only right that you pull out all the stops in honor of the person who makes life better.

Here are the simple, but crucial components for celebrating your person on their birthday:

1. Mark Your Calendar

This may be stating the obvious, but the first step is remembering. How bad would you feel if you even mixed up the day, let alone forgot your person’s birthday altogether? Use a calendar or other reminder tool to help you out. Pro Tip: if you want some peace of mind, set up a birthday reminder!

2. Say I Love You 

Send a sweet text right at midnight so they know you’re thinking about them in the moment, or a heartfelt card they can cherish forever.

If you’re not a wordy person, that’s totally okay. Let a photo do the talking (they are worth a thousand words apparently). A framed photo of the two of you is equally cherish-able, and also writer’s block proof.

3. Set the Scene

No matter the location, there’s always a way to brighten it up with some birthday decor. And of course, make sure you align the color scheme with their taste.

There’s no beating the look on your friend’s face when they walk into a space and see it decorated completely for them. Get creative with how you can incorporate everything that they love!

4. Follow Their Lead

If it’s not a surprise celebration, then your ideal role is their coordinator and #1 hype person. Translation: help plan and make it exciting, but ultimately let them call the shots.

If you are planning something a little more incognito- it shouldn’t be hard to choose the perfect activities to fit your bestie’s personality. Chances are you like a lot of the same things, so you should know whether they want a blow out surprise with tons of friends, or a casual movie night on the couch.

Near, Far, Wherever They Are!

If you hit all these key areas- your best friend is sure to feel like the most special birthday babe of all time!

Oh, and if you and your bestie are doing the whole long-distance thing, there are definitely still ways to make them feel special. If you can’t be there in person, send them something physical that checks all these boxes; custom message, pics of their favorite things, and decorated for them.
