January is slowly coming to a close and Aquarius season is here which means…it’s almost my birthday! My birthday being here at the end of the month means that it’s time to start planning what I want to do. As someone who usually has some idea of what I’d like to do for my birthday, I realize that not everyone is this way.
Being adults, it’s not as easy to come up with a plan either. The possibilities are endless when you’re a child, but birthdays as an adult can get a little tricky. That said, here are eight birthday celebration ideas for adults who need a little inspiration or never know what to do on their birthday!
1. Go out to dinner
Going out to dinner for your birthday is a favorite for many and one of the more simple ideas. It’s also a great idea for those who forget to make birthday plans and need a last-minute idea. Birthday dinners are quite versatile as you can always switch it up depending on how you feel for your birthday. You can do a dinner in an upscale restaurant or go more on the casual side.
2. Throw a hotel party
Hotel parties are a fun way to celebrate with your friends! The possibilities are endless with how you can plan it out. They’re also perfect if you don’t live alone or you don’t want to have a mess to clean up in your home!
3. Throw a fancy birthday celebration
As an adult, you may want to up your game a little more, and you can do so by throwing a fancy birthday celebration! Throwing a fancy birthday celebration means going all out and being as extra and fancy as you desire! This could look like renting an upscale venue with catering and having a formal/semi-formal dress code. The fanciness level depends on you, but one thing is for sure…it will be fabulous and memorable!
4. Go to a club/bar
Though some may not be the same as they used to be, going to the club is still a fun way to let loose and have fun! There is nothing like dressing up and grabbing your girls for a fun night of dancing. You may even get a free shot!
5. Have a free meal day
One of the best things about birthdays is all of the free birthday deals that exist! Not everyone likes to celebrate their birthday, but we all love free stuff! From breakfast to dessert, you can plan a full free meal day where you go to all of the restaurants that provide free birthday treats. You can also make it a shopping day as you grab those birthday discounts as well!
6. Throw a pool party
This one is for those who have a birthday in the warmer months. Pool parties are a fun way to celebrate with a splash! If you’re a lover of water, this idea is perfect for you. Grab your floaties and tropical drinks as you and your friends have some fun in the sun!
7. Go on a vacation trip
Pack your bags and get out of the city…or maybe the country…for a birthday vacation! Going somewhere new is always fun and exhilarating! Whether you choose to go by yourself or with friends, you can never go wrong with a nice getaway.
8. Make a huge purchase
Though celebrating or partaking in free goodies is nice, some don’t care about any of those things. However, what they do care about is making big purchases or investments, and there’s no better day to make an investment/purchase that you’ve always wanted to make than on your birthday! This huge purchase could be a car, home, or even tickets to Disney (because they are quite expensive). An important thing to note is that these kinds of purchases aren’t something you can make in the spur of the moment. They are something you have already taken plenty of time to think and plan out. It also may not work out to where you can have these things on your exact birthday, but possibly around that day. Once you’ve made that purchase, especially knowing how much work you put in to obtain it, it’ll end up becoming the best birthday present to yourself!
As a lover of birthdays, I’m always trying to figure out something new to do or how to up the ante on something I’ve already done before. Figuring out what to do for your birthday can be difficult so I hope these ideas helped provide a little inspiration!
