12 Fascinating Birthday Gifts, But for Yourself!

Birthday gifts, from you, to you!

Birthday gifts from people are fine, but have you considered what you’re getting yourself?


Do you love birthdays? Dream of cake? Have a calendar that goes from birthday to birthday? Spend your free-time planning the perfect gifts for the people you love? Birthdays can be a source for much joy, a reason to celebrate, proof that you made it another year. With 2020 forcing so many of us to have an indoor birthday, gifts became mandatory in many ways. Even as we planned videos and letters for the people we love, the internet came up with some excellent ways to truly celebrate.

As the internet got over-run by the “Marble cake” and “Anything can be cake” challenge, many of us received beautiful gifts that showed us how, in many ways, our friends and family love us but don’t know us! Bummer?I know! Have you ever been disappointed by the gifts you get, not because you’re ungrateful but because you don’t feel known? We understand your pain. In the last few years, gifting has changed in so many ways, from surprise gifts or gifts for when trying to woo an angry girlfriend, we’ve covered all kinds of gifts, but nothing tops a birthday gift. 

A birthday gift says, “I’m really glad you’re here, and I am so happy to be there on the day we celebrate the inception of your existence on this planet!”…Only, in not so many words! 

But while it’s lovely to receive gifts from other people, it’s also essential that you buy yourself things. A study done by Harvard University says that when you buy birthday gifts for yourself, you show yourself the regard you show everyone else! So, we just had to make you a list of things you deserve. It’s your birthday. Yasss gurllll…splurge!

Here are a few birthday gifts for you to treat yo’ self!

There are many things that a birthday brings up, like fond memories, Birthday cake with potato wafers on paper plates, and getting to open your birthday gifts in front of friends, all huddling into a tiny space and taking pictures that go on an album you would see all the time. But with the invention of phones, we stopped getting pictures printed out, thus died the picture printing and album industry, but there are few things in life as lovely as the polaroid camera. It’s a thing of absolute need to have one—the best way to capture a moment truly.

Ice-cream Mold

Birthdays remind us of our childhood the most and what is more reminiscent of childhood than an ice-lolly. When we were kids, this was the ultimate summer treat, and eating it before it melts was considered art, a talent, and a baddie on the playground. Having a brain freeze was completely worth it because you, man, did it taste good. As we grow up, we find more wholesome food. We worry about sugar levels and health, which is why this Fab Homes and Gardens Silicone Mold is excellent.

You can add fruit juices, cake, and fresh milkshakes and turn them into ice cream. If these had existed when I was a kid, I would have made ice cream every day! One of the best birthday gifts indeed!

When it comes to birthdays for yourself, there’s a lot of ways to go. There are spurlges on things you don’t need, essential things you never thought you needed. We wanted to give you a list that wasn’t chock full of cliches but was a personal list. A lot of the birthday gifts people give us can either only be used twice or thrice, which is why we went with products that might be a little on the pricey side but are investments because so often, we give the and receive frivolous birthday gifts that are in no way useful.
