Sometimes it’s the little things that count and which can make a huge difference to your day - such as someone remembering your birthday. Even in today’s busy and social-media focused era, you’re never too young or too old to feel excited when a lovely and unexpected birthday gift box
arrives in the post. The bubbles of anticipation that arise as you carefully unwrap (or tear off…) the packaging to reveal presents that someone has taken the time to choose and to send you can lift your spirits and help you feel loved and valued. Sometimes it can also provide a much needed virtual hug in a box
- particularly when times have been tough. But how often have you missed someone’s birthday by mistake? You’ve been aware that your mum's, dad's, aunt's, uncle's, grandma's, grandpa's, best friend's birthday is approaching and then life picks up speed and before you know it you’re looking at the current date and, with a sinking feeling, realise you’ve either missed their birthday or it’s tomorrow! Maybe you're also looking for some birthday gift ideas inspiration
