22 April 2022
Celebrating birthdays is one of our favourite things to do, especially when they are milestone birthdays. However it can be hard to know what to buy someone who has hit an 18th, 21st, 30th and so on. Apart from the stereotypical presents of alcohol and flowers, what else can you gift someone?
From light up jars, photo albums, birthday cards and candles, here at Gifts from Handpicked we love finding unique gift ideas. No matter the occasion it is great to find gifts that are always going to surprise the recipient and make them smile.
But why do we celebrate milestone birthdays? And why do they mean so much to us all?
Milestone birthdays are almost like gateways to different parts of our life, from being a baby, to a toddler, teenager and then an adult! They are important as it gives us chance to reflect on our lives and what we have achieved. People also celebrate milestone birthdays as we can legally do different things when we turn a certain age. For example, on your 17th birthday you are legally allowed to learn how to drive, on your 18th you can legally drink! And on your 21st birthday you can legally drink in the United States of America.
From bidding goodbye to your twenties, to saying hello to your fifties, birthdays will always be such an exciting time in everybody's lives.
