Birthdays are very special celebrations, events that recognise the milestone that is your birth. Here at Uplanit, we organize amazing events, so we understand how and why milestone celebrations are so important. We give every aspect of our events the best we’ve got and ensure that it’s a success.

Recently, people have had to scale back on birthdays and other social events. Reasons like social distancing due to covid-19 and finances have meant smaller celebrations. But a smaller birthday does not imply a boring birthday.

Celebrating your birthday or that of a loved one in a smaller way can be fun and memorable. You just have to know how to do it right. So here are our tips on how to make a small birthday celebration feel special.

Start with A Fun Birthday Countdown

There’s a reason why people love the 12 days of Christmas countdown. There’s even a popular song about it! A chart counting down to your loved one’s birthday can make all the difference. If you can afford it, you can add treats and gifts for each day leading up to their official birthday.

Birthday Scavenger Hunts Are Fun

A good old scavenger hunt will never go out of fashion. It does not matter whether the celebrant is young or old. Who doesn’t love finding their birthday present using clues?

So, make a plan and have clues scattered all over the house or even the city. You can make them harder or easier depending on age and ability.

Quality Time Can Be A Great Addition

Clear out your schedule and give your loved one the gift of time. That means no distractions and no running off to tick your to-do list. Take time out, enjoy the day together and give the celebrant your undivided attention. You can even plan a date and have a great time.

A Trip Down Memory Lane

Find childhood stories and photos of the celebrant to take them on a trip down memory lane. As humans, being reminded of how far we’ve come can be such a great experience. Looking over photos from back then will make the experience even better.

If they are family, you could have everyone share a favourite childhood memory with them in it. You can also have loved ones send in one or two things they love about the celebrant. That extra bit of attention from everyone will make things even more special.

Talk About Their Growth in One Year

This is a fun and easy tradition that can stick and make a small birthday celebration even better. Talk about careers, business, or even their height if it’s a child. Make a growth chart documenting these things too. It’s a lovely way to stay thankful.

Go Out Virtually

If restrictions are the problem, how about a virtual outing? You could even do a virtual bar crawl or wine tasting. Order cocktails, beer, or wine from places you’d have loved to go and wind down with them as the birthday progresses.

How about choosing fun themes for your wine tasting to make it more fun? Some great ideas include Unusual Reds and Sparkling Wine from Around the World. Friends who are attending virtually could also get the same and bond as you share an online party to celebrate the day.

Pamper Them At Home

This is another one for those who could also be in a lockdown. Get candles, herbs, cucumbers, and essential oils. It’s time to have an at-home spa day. Other activities you could also enjoy are nail painting and facial masks.

To make this more realistic, stick to a dress code of robes and fuzzy slippers. You could also try out different potions and skin scrubs. You’ll have a great time, and your skin will come away feeling amazing too.

Have a Dream Location Themed Dinner

Does your loved one have a place they’ve always wanted to visit? How about sampling a meal from that location for their birthday dinner? You could take them to an Italian restaurant and choose a lovely meal to share if they love Italy.

If you are cooking at home, there are some easy options that you can choose on the internet. Try Sushi Rolls for Tokyo, Paella for Spain, and Souvlaki if they love Greece. It’ll make your small celebration that much more memorable for everyone.

A small birthday celebration can be just as special as a big party celebrating your loved one. You even have an edge because small celebrations always come with more intimacy which is a plus. Feel free to choose from any of our above tips to help make the experience memorable.

Do you have special ideas you can share with us too? We’d love to see it, so feel free to let us know. Till then, See you next week!
