Your birthday only comes around once a year and it’s a day worth celebrating. Sure you may have a busy schedule and funds may even be tight at times, but some things are worth finding the time and money for. After all, you’ve worked hard all year. That should qualify as a reason to deserve to treat yourself. And you can do so on your budget. You’d be surprised at what you can splurge on without spending too much. Check out this list below:
Flower or Fruit Arrangement
You don’t have to have a significant other to wait to receive flowers on your birthday. If you enjoy the smell of roses, why not buy some for yourself? You can go to a local florist and ask them to put together an arrangement for you or order them online and have them delivered to your house. If flowers aren’t your thing, another suggestion could be to have a fruit arrangement sent to your house. Fruit baskets or fruit shaped to look like flowers are a sweet treat and a nice way to say happy birthday.
Birthday Gift Boxes
Did you know that there were actually pre-packaged gift boxes that you could purchase for your birthday? You can go online and look at various box options. Some have candles, flowers, and chocolates, while others have herbal teas and bath beads. You can have the birthday boxes delivered to your home for a very relaxing evening at home. There’s nothing like a little pampering to feel rejuvenated.
Mani and Pedi
If you like the idea of pampering yourself for your born day, another treat would be to go and have your hands and feet done. A trip to the salon can be very relaxing and makes you feel great when you’re done. Some have massage chairs that provide extra comfort while getting your manicure and pedicure. Many salons have package deals so you can save some money while still putting a smile on your face.
What girl doesn’t like a new outfit? Take a day off from work or hit the mall on the weekend and get something new. Many retail stores have clearance racks which are filled with clothing items at a discounted price. You can dig around on those racks first as you might find a trendy outfit for very little money. If you have changed leftover in the budget, treat yourself to lunch or something.
If you’ve got a sizeable budget for your birthday, you can afford to splurge a bit. It’s likely been awhile since you’ve pried yourself away from your work, so why not make your birthday a paid vacation day? Celebrate your life by going to explore a new destination. You can find vacation packages to reduce the cost of travel. Even a staycation where you travel somewhere local is a nice treat if you find an affordable hotel with nice amenities. You could relax by the pool, enjoy some room service, and enjoy a nice movie.
It’s nice to receive texts, phone calls, well-wishes and gifts from others on your birthday, but there’s nothing like celebrating yourself. Treating yourself on your birthday doesn’t have to break your budget. There are plenty of ways to find discounts on fashion, beauty, and entertainment. Whether you buy yourself a new top and a lunch or you go to an exotic destination, the joy you get from showing a little self-love on this very special day will make it all worth it.
