Hard as we might try, as we get older it gets harder to meet up with friends, which is why it is so important we keep on celebrating our birthday…however many years it might be! 

There’s nothing like a birthday to get old friends back together but with hectic work schedules and family commitments it can get a bit tricky, so make sure you make an extra special effort. 

7 great ideas for birthday get-togethers with the girls

Visit a theme park 

Personalised birthday gift: pink flamingo mugChannel your inner thrill-seeker, book a day off and head to your nearest theme park. Flamingos are really having a moment, so why not suggest a day out to Flamingo Land, then compliment the occasion with a personalised birthday gift of this Flamingo mug! 

Gin tasting

personalised birthday gift: gin coastersGin too is enjoying a huge renaissance with gin bars springing up pretty much everywhere. Get the gang together and sample some of the many exotic options at a specialist bar – all things in moderation mind! Give a personalised birthday gift that fits, such as these gin coasters 

personalised make-up bag
Spa day 

Who needs an excuse for a well-earned bit of rest and relaxation? Afternoon tea and a day relaxing
at the spa will definitely blow the cobwebs away. A named make up bag makes a fantastic personalised birthday gift for the pampered princess. 

Adrenaline adventure 

Trying something new together is a great bonding experience and a birthday is a great excuse to splash the cash. Experiences are big business now so take your pick from a segway adventure, go-kart racing, escape rooms, zorbing, and zip-lining, among many others. 

Weekend away 

The classic girlie getaway; leave your troubles at the front door of a rented cottage and crack out the prosecco, board games and walking shoes for a long over-due birthday catch-up. 


In many ways it’s the same as the weekend away but with the added bonus of bonding over your survival skills. It’s also easy on the wallet and one night may well be enough! 

Night at the theatre 

We all need an excuse to get our glad rags on from time-to-time. A bit of high end culture makes for a birthday night out to remember.  


Who hasn’t fancied a go at stirring things up behind the bar? While many establishments offer mixology experiences, you could also have do-it-yourself night at home. Invest in a cocktail recipe book and get everyone to bring an ingredient (or their half-empty leftovers) and get shaking! These ‘Hello Gorgeous’ wine glasses would make a great personalised birthday gift to serve up the creations in. 


Celebrate friendship with the sparkle it deserves and make sure every birthday is an occasion to remember with a personalised gift.
