4 Gift Ideas To Ask Your Partner For This Birthday
If your birthday is coming up soon and you’re thinking about starting to drop hints to your significant other about what you might like to receive on the big day, then read on. This is a run-down of four gift ideas to ask your partner for ready for when your birthday rolls around.
With so many brands on the marketplace these days it can be really difficult - and expensive - to keep up with the latest trends. Therefore, what better birthday treat to receive than some new make-up?! Now, this can be a tricky product to expect your boyfriend or girlfriend to be able to buy confidently for you. So, if you’re determined not to ask for exactly what you’d like outright, then why not organise a spontaneous shopping trip a week or two before your birthday to help your partner scout out present ideas. You might wish to highlight the eyeshadow palette you have been longing after for weeks, or perhaps some natural beauty products you saw featured in a YouTube video?
2. A Trip Abroad
During the outbreak of COVID-19 and the subsequent lockdowns and social distancing restrictions, nothing has felt more appealing than the promise of a trip abroad. Why not ask your partner to plan a holiday and treat you to the trip for your birthday? Most airlines and holiday package providers are offering flexible dates and refund policies at the moment to encourage people to travel again. Your partner will probably be able to get a really good rate! Having nothing to look forward to is never great for your mental health, so why not ask for this?
3. New Clothes
If your ASOS wishlist is starting to pile up but you haven’t got the cash to pay for it all, then it might be a good idea to hold off on your next haul and asking for some new clothes for your birthday. Hopefully your significant other is very familiar with your style and can be trusted to buy you something that will suit you. That said if you’re not sure that you’d like to take the risk, then there’s no harm in pointing out a few pieces that you’re fond of when you’re next out shopping - or even share your wishlist with him or her over email. I’m sure they would rather you got what you really wanted for your birthday rather than risk it and potentially waste their money.
4. Something Personal
Perhaps you aren’t much of a materialistic person or aren’t prepared to wait for a holiday and would much rather enjoy a surprise than ask for a list of specific gifts. If that sounds like you, then why not ask your partner to buy you something personal to you this birthday? It’s always nice when you can see that somebody has put lots of thought into a gift idea for you, so why not trust your other half to deliver the goods and leave yourself guessing about what your presents might be this year?
Until Next Time~
