Is your best friend’s birthday coming up? Whether she lives just around the corner from you or on the other side of the country, the chances are that you want to make it special for her. You most probably want to make her feel truly spoilt, and her birthday a memorable one. After all, that’s what best friends are for, right?

That being said, sometimes knowing how to make a birthday special can be tricky, even if it is for your closest friend. So here are some fabulous ideas for treating her on her birthday, and making it truly special.

Spa day and afternoon tea

If your friend could do with a little relaxation, how about treating her to a spa day? For anyone who’s stressed out or in need of a good pamper, a spa day will make the perfect gift. Bonus points if you book a spa that serves complimentary champagne – there’s nothing like a glass of bubbly on your birthday.

To beef up her gift, how about looking at sites like Wowcher – they always have fabulous deals, for spa day packages? Often, on here you can find spa day packages that are affordably priced and include a delicious afternoon tea.

Make her a cake

It’s a simple gesture, but one that she’ll love. If you don’t have the money for expensive treats, how about making your friend a birthday cake? Bake her a cake and top it with all of her favourite sweet treats – fudge, marshmallow and chocolate are ideal. Pop the cake onto a pretty plate, add some candles, and surprise her with it.

To go with it, how about baking her some mini cookie and brownies, and popping them into a cute gift box? Trust me, she’ll love you for making her something sweet to celebrate her special day.

Put together a care package

If your best friend lives a long way away, that doesn’t mean that you can’t spoil her. Buy a pretty basket, and put together a birthday care package for her. When you live far apart, this is such a cute way to show her how much you care.

Pop some of her favourite makeup and beauty products in there – maybe a new nail polish and face scrub? How about some new accessories, like one of these wholesale purses or a pretty scarf? Add a couple of her favourite sweet treats, a magazine or two, and a birthday card, and you’ve got the perfect gift.

Surprise her with a day trip

If you know, she doesn’t have any plans, surprise her with a day trip. This could be to her favourite city – shopping in London is always a good idea, seaside town, or somewhere else that is special to her.

Spend some time having fun together, exploring the area and having a laugh. Do some shopping, go for lunch, and make a day of it. Want to celebrate her birthday in style – a day trip is a perfect way to go.

With these ideas, you should now be able to make your best friend’s birthday both fun and memorable.
