best ways to celebrate birthdays

As a child, we dreamt about our birthdays from at least a week before, which is an astounding feeling. We dream about the cakes, ice creams, and gifts that comes along with the special day.

So now you are much older and it’s your birthday and you are less excited about it. You might be like me who normally already have plans to make my birthdays awesome, or maybe you just haven’t really given it a thought. Either way, there are awesome ways to make that day feel special, no matter how old you are turning.

Here are amazing ways to celebrate your birthdays:

  1. Thank Your Parents

We all are in this world thanks to our parents. You can choose to celebrate your birthday by sending them gifts, flowers, or a card, which says how much you love them and how happy you are they brought you to this world.

  1. Give To Charity

I learnt this from a girl in my school, she wouldn’t spend money on drinks, partying or clubbing, but with homeless and poor people. She would always find the time on that day to visit a homeless center around her neighborhood. I really think this is a kind gesture that would mean a lot to the society.

  1. Splurge On Yourself

Yessss!! Splurge! Splurge!! Splurge!!!. I love this way because I can decide to buy anything for myself. Which means everything I want, and have been saving for, would be mine on my birthday.

To get the best of your day, you can choose to go on a shopping spree or get a massage. This depends on how you intend pampering yourself.

  1. Indoor Game Challenge

Call all your friends for a house party and play a game. Anyone that lose the game drinks a shot of vodka or whiskey. You can decide to do this over different form of games, this depends mostly on the games you and your friends like to play. For example, you can choose to play FIFA 17 and take 5 minutes round for everyone to play and who ever lose drinks. I assure you, you would have crazy fun.

  1. Get On A Train

For those of you who have easy access to good trains in Nigeria, why not get on the train and take a good tour of Nigeria.  You would get to see your country in a new way.

  1. Visit A Studio

I like to call this one, light, camera, action J.

Feel like a celebrity to celebrate your birthday in style. Visit a studio, get a camera man and pose for lovely pictures.

  1. Take A Boat Cruise

There are lovely places to take boat cruises on the island at an affordable cost. You can call some of your friends to join you on a boat cruise or you can decide to cruise on your own. If you choose to cruise alone, you can choose a speedboat and you drive yourself. Here are lists of places to take a boat cruise in Nigeria.

  1. Try Paintballing

Paintballing is a good way to strengthen the bond between you and your friends. What’s a better day to strengthen the bond if not on your birthday?. But take note, you would need to plan ahead for this. Here are few spots to try paintballing in Nigeria Hardcore entertainment Inc, Empire Sport Limited, and Xtreme Sports.

  1. Donate to people in Need

I think everyone should try doing this at one point or another in his or her life. You don’t know who you might be saving his life. We shouldn’t choose to give blood only on a special day like our birthdays’, but also can be done occasionally. When you choose to give blood on your birthday, there’s this kind of peace within you.

  1. Have A Picnic

By having a picnic, am not saying cooking some varieties of food and inviting your friends to come eat at Elegushi beach. By having a picnic, I meant inviting just a few friends and visit a cool garden to hangout with mats and boxes of food.

  1. Try Karaoke

Have you ever tried Karaoke?, I adore Karaoke because i can get to hear myself on the mic singing the songs I love. To celebrate your birthday, you can hang out with some of your friends at a Karaoke bar and sing the song you all love to sing together.


Celebrating your birthday can be done alone or with friends. It depends on what you choose to do. Remember, whatever you choose in celebrating, make sure you to have fun all the way.
