Whether your loved ones birthday is just around the corner or not, it’s always best to be prepared which is why we have put together our ultimate list of birthday gift ideas for her guide. It doesn’t matter how big or small your budget is this year, in our guide we have included a number of options to suit all. From lingerie to a once in a lifetime experience, you don’t have to break the bank to spoil your other half.
If you want to buy an exciting gift for your partner in crime that the two of you can enjoy, lingerie is a great place to start. There are so many options on the market, we have some top tips to make sure you buy the right thing. Firstly, make sure you buy the right size, if you’ve been with your partner for a long time- the chances are you know her size well. However, if the relationship is fairly fresh, checking her size is a must. Another rule of thumb is to buy something you know she will wear, although experimenting can be fun, it’s sometimes best to buy something she will be comfortable and confident in. Finally, make sure you buy from a high quality brand that accepts returns, our favourite lingerie retailer is Bras and Honey who sell a range of lingerie to suit all shapes and sizes.
If you have deeper pockets, a great birthday gift idea is a city break. The UK has such a variety of fun and vibrant cities to choose from, our favourite at the moment is Manchester. The city of Manchester is up and coming and claimed by some to be the next London. From crazy golf to rooftop bars, there are some great date locations across the city that are sure to impress. If you truly want to enjoy Manchester, we recommend doing your research beforehand as there are many hidden bars and restaurants that you do not want to miss out on.
Whether your partner is into Pilates or just appreciates being pampered, the UKs leading Pilates retreat is offering a great package which involves a weekend stay at a boutique coastal hotel, expert led pilates sessions and more. Reformer Retreats is a great gift idea for anyone who loves relaxing, unwinding and meeting new, like minded people. During the retreat there are wellness classes, sunrise and sunset meditation classes, spa treatments and of course Pilates. Whether you’re new to Pilates or not, classes are small and grouped by ability where you will be coached through each movement by classically trained pilates instructors. The weekend has been carefully planned to provide you with pure indulgence and relaxation whilst challenging you to push yourself to new limits.
4.Once in a lifetime experience
If you want to go above and beyond for your better half’s birthday, why not treat your loved one to a once in a lifetime experience. Although this experience is not for the faint hearted, we’re thinking of something truly unique… skydiving. Skydiving is a great gift for someone who loves to try new things, is a bit of an adrenaline junkie and most importantly, is not scared of heights. If this sounds like your other half, then skydiving might be the perfect gift for them. However, it is important to do your research, choose a trusted company. If your loved one is not a daredevil, there are other amazing once in a lifetime experiences to choose from including London in the sky, segway experiences or even climbing the O2.
5.Non-surgical cosmetic treatment
In recent years, non surgical cosmetic treatments like Botox and lip fillers have grown increasingly popular, particularly amongst women. These fillers are an affordable way to enhance facial features to create a more youthful look. This can make an individual feel much more confident and boost self esteem. If your partner has previously had non-surgical cosmetic treatment or has shown a clear interest or desire to have a treatment then paying for this treatment could be an excellent birthday gift idea. However, if they have never previously mentioned wanting a cosmetic treatment it is best to avoid this gift idea as not to cause offence.
If your partner was already considering a non surgical cosmetic treatment and you are confident this is a birthday gift they would love, it is important you do your research about which clinic you use. One of the UKs leading cosmetic clinics is Dr Hennessy who offer a range of treatments including anti wrinkle treatment, lip enhancement, brow lift, facial fillers and more.
