People of all ages regard birthdays as significant events. Some people enjoy celebrating each birthday, while others view them as just another day. Your age, personality and budget affect your birthday plans each year, but even within the parameters of these factors, there are numerous ways to have a cool birthday.

A Romantic Birthday

Whether you have been in a relationship for many years or are newly dating, one way to spend your birthday is with the one you love. Dinner followed by a movie, enables a couple to have some alone time to mark the occasion. Some restaurants offer free meals or desserts to people on their birthday, so check out the local restaurant guides before deciding where to go. Depending on your local geography and climate, an outdoor birthday can be fun. Couples can celebrate a birthday with a day at the beach, a picnic at the park or an afternoon of snow skiing. If work and money permit, then indulge yourself and your loved one on a weekend getaway to your favourite romantic destination.

Family and Friends

Friends and family often look forward to celebrating milestone birthdays and it can be fun and easy to organise a big event. Local social clubs or small venues serve as great locations for birthday celebrations, but remember to book ahead. Large restaurants will cater to groups of people celebrating birthdays and, where possible, may allow the party to have an area of the restaurant to themselves. If you do not want to deal with renting a venue or reserving seating at a restaurant, then a home-based party will work just as well. Garden parties are very easy to plan if you have a reliable grill and a decent number of outdoor chairs. During cold weather, an inside event around a warm fireplace creates a cosy feel for a birthday party.

Fun Activities

There are many activities that people discuss but never find the time for during their regular routine. Birthdays provide the perfect excuse to live out those long held dreams. Hot air ballooning and skydiving are two exciting airborne ways to mark a birthday. People who love the ocean can enjoy scuba diving or swimming with dolphins on their special day. If you are not an active person, then perhaps try a different but less dangerous novelty like karaoke singing.


People leading busy lives enjoy opportunities for relaxation, and a birthday spent alone with a good book can be very pleasant. Trips to spas and spiritual retreats entice people who want to clear their minds and bodies. Some people may simply enjoy relaxing on their big day by spending it in bed.
