What a crappy 14 months it’s been for birthdays. No parties or drunken outings where you end up making a massive tit of yourself. Instead being at home doing a zoom quiz with your mates and having a few gins on your sofa.
Although normality is slowing returning (massive finger and toe crossing here) and we should be able to get a few drinks at our local sitting outside, we still need a few gift ideas to brighten up our mates birthdays. Here’s a few things I’ve put together to help you, enjoy.

Personalised Gin Bottles
I am a gin lover and love anything personalised so I completely adore this. I ordered a personalised bottle of Rhubarb Gin for a friend at Christmas and she was over the moon with it and still has the bottle (empty of course) on the side at home. You can order this in all different sizes, just click on the picture to take you there 🙂

Beautiful Tree of Life Necklace with Quartz from http://www.sophiascrystals.com this is actually my eight year olds business. In lockdown my daughter Sophia asked to earn some extra money, after talking through her options she picked selling beautiful crystal jewellery and bookmarks that she can source and sell. She is doing fantastic locally with amazing feedback too. We are currently working on her website (slow process) but you can still order from there.
