A birthday is a time to celebrate the year gone by and look ahead to the next. It’s also a time to give back and honor those around us, especially those who are less fortunate. Whether it’s volunteering at a local food bank, helping with community cleanup or visiting a senior living facility to share a meal and some company, there are many ways to show your friends and family that you care.

As you prepare to celebrate another year of life, here are a few ideas on how to make it extra special for the birthday girl or boy in your life:

1. Send an electronic card.

It may seem like a small gesture, but it will go a long way in making the recipient feel loved and remembered. Sending a thoughtful message is a great way to show that you have been thinking about them all year, and you’re so glad to have them in your life.

2. Plan a birthday adventure.

Taking your friends out on an exciting new experience is a fun and memorable way to show how much you appreciate them. Whether you go to an escape room, an art museum or on a sunset sail, the memories will last a lifetime.

3. Buy a bouquet of flowers.

Nothing is more classic than a beautiful floral arrangement. It is a gift that will remind them of your love, and the beauty you see in their face. You can find a wide variety of florists in NYC, so you’re sure to find the perfect arrangement.

4. Have a karaoke night.

Karaoke is a fun way to unwind and enjoy the company of your friends. Many people will sing their heart out in honor of the celebrant, and it can be a memorable way to spend the day.

5. Treat yourself to a nice dinner and drinks.

Whether it’s a glass of champagne or a pitcher of sangria, you deserve to have a few indulgences on your birthday. Treat yourself to a night out at your favorite spot and let the good times roll!

6. Give yourself a present.

You’ve been working hard all year and it’s your birthday — treat yourself to a little something you’ve always wanted. You can even plan ahead by strategically vacuuming or doing any chores you dread, so you don’t have to worry about them on your special day.

7. Pull someone’s ear.

In some cultures, it is a tradition to pull on a person’s ear on their birthday. This is believed to keep away evil spirits.

8. Write a letter of gratitude.

Lastly, it’s always nice to be reminded of the good in others. Reach out to those close to you and ask them to share their favorite memory of you. Then, gather them all together and put them in a beautiful box or envelope to be treasured. This is sure to bring goosebumps, tears, and warm fuzzies.

There are endless ways to celebrate a birthday, but the most important thing is that you surround yourself with the people who make you happy. So, if you haven’t already, show your friends and family how much they mean to you by showing them how much you appreciate them every day.
