Birthdays can stop feeling so exciting as you get older, but there’s no reason you shouldn’t still celebrate them. You get one day a year when you can make everything about you, and it’s the perfect time to get your friends together. You could have a girly day at the spa, do something daring or treat yourselves to an expensive dinner at a posh restaurant. Whatever you choose to do, whether it’s with friends or family, you deserve to have a special day. Try these exciting ideas for an amazing day out.
Some people enjoy a day full of activity, but if you’re a mum, a busy career woman or both, you probably just want a lie-down. If you’re ready to put your feet up for the day, get some friends together and spend a day at the spa. You could have massages, facials, manis and pedis, or spend your time relaxing in a Jacuzzi. You don’t even need to leave home if you don’t want to. You can get a spa service to come to you and do everything at home.
Experience a Thrill
Perhaps you want something a bit more exciting? If you and the girls are always looking for excitement, there are lots of things you can do. Rollercoasters are always a fun option, so book tickets at one of the UK’s awesome amusement parks – or even go abroad to discover a new one. You could do other daring things too, from trying out whitewater rafting to going skydiving.
Expensive Restaurant Treat
It’s not every day that you can afford to go to a posh restaurant. A trip to London would be the perfect time to enjoy lunch, dinner or afternoon tea somewhere swanky. Try one of the expensive hotels like Claridges, or look for a celebrity chef’s restaurant, from Heston Blumenthal to Gordon Ramsay. Remember you’ll need to book in advance for a lot of them. If it’s too expensive, just try somewhere new.
Learn Something New
There are lots of fun birthday experiences where you can take a class or try out something new. They range from salsa and pole dancing to baking cupcakes and mixing cocktails. You and your friends can all try your hand at learning, and in the end you’ll have something to show for it. By the end of the day, you’ll be able to make tasty cocktails or cakes or show off your dance moves.
Compete with Your Friends
If you and your friends like to get competitive, try something that pits you against each other. You could spend the day doing paintball or laser tag, or race each other around a go-kart track. For something completely different, you can try clay pigeon shooting, go on a treasure hunt or even join in with a zombie boot camp.
There are so many things you can do on your birthday, and you should get to have as much fun as possible. So grab your friends or family for a brilliant day out.
