Many of us settle for sending a card and gift voucher, but there’s so much more we can do to make the day special. You may not be able to be with her for the day itself, but with a little smart thinking, you can make your friend's birthday extra special.

Spoil Her with a Gift Box

Pick out a cute box in a design that she’ll love, pop in some tissue paper and fill it with lots of her favorite treats. Choose all the right things, and she’ll love this idea. Even if money is tight you can still do this; it’s just a case of choosing a budget, and finding gifts that allow you to stick to it.

For her box, accessories like wallets and scarves are ideal, as are some lovely cozy socks or a new pair of slippers. A stylish pair of pajamas can also be a big hit, as long as you know her size, that is. If you know the types of beauty products she likes, a skin care set or mini facial kit could be perfect, as could some of her favorite nail polishes. How about adding a pillow with a cute quote or a mug with an inspiring phrase printed on it? Be creative with what you get for her, and you can put together the perfect gift.

Surprise her with a custom designed card

Instead of sending her a generic card, buy a custom made one. There are so many sites that sell fantastic custom made cards, that if you shop around, you should be able to find the perfect one. Pick an old picture of the two of you or a cute picture of her dog, and turn it into a beautiful card. Be creative, the more glitter and sparkle the card has, the more she’ll love it.

If you don’t fancy ordering her a card from a special site, how about making it yourself? It may not be as professional looking, but she’ll love that you’ve made the effort. To make her card even more special, arrange to have a custom-made stamp from put on it. Everyone dreams of having their head on a postage stamp, so why not make her dreams come true?

Get birthday treats delivered

You may not be there to spoil her, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t arrange to have little treats arrive at her door. Sometimes, it’s the little things that make all the difference, such as receiving a beautiful bunch of helium balloons.  Or get in touch with a bakery that’s local to her, and arrange for them to make and deliver her favorite cake or cookies. While this may be a little pricey, to make her birthday special, cakes just say Happy Birthday! . Shop around to find a good price and a good baker, and surprise her with a birthday cake.

If you want to make your friend’s birthday special, take note of the ideas above. There’s no better present than having a dear friend remember your birthday.
