Fill out a wish list and send it to someone so they can buy you a gift, paint your nails, or take you on a day trip while all of your family members chip in on making sure everything goes great! You’ll be surprised how quickly the time will fly by when you’re having fun with friends and loved ones.
Don’t let the COVID-19 pandemic and the global lockdown spoil your birthday because it’s something you can’t control. So make the most of it! In this blog, you will find awesome ways to celebrate your birthday in 2021!
Invest in your mind by learning something new. Maybe you’ve always wanted to learn a new language, learn to play a musical instrument, or how to do a killer magic trick. The only way you can get good at it is by putting in the time and effort, so make sure you budget some spare time for this! If you’re a visual learner, check out some YouTube videos on your topic of choice or go to a local library. If you prefer having a real-life teacher, find people who have mastered what you’re trying to learn and offer them your services in return. Make use of your ideal time and pick up a new skill.
The benefits of learning a new skill are boundless therefore it’s something you shouldn’t miss out on. Learning a new skill can give you the mental and physical boost you need to go through life. Just pick a topic and start learning!
When was the last time you spent quality time with your family members or close friends? Now is the time to make that happen. Have everyone chip in on making it an experience you’ll never forget! Everyone can bring their favorite food and drinks, and spend the night dancing, laughing, crying (in a good way), and having fun. Whatever happens, have fun, and make sure you show your appreciation for everyone attending. Rent a water slide in Long Island and have a great time sliding down the slides.
What is the best way to celebrate love? By expressing it! Fill out a wish list of things you want your significant other, family member, or friend to do on your upcoming birthday and hand it over to them so they can surprise you with what you want. They don’t have to get you anything big, just a small token of appreciation will be enough to show how much they love and care about you!
Nothing beats the feeling of being surrounded by people who love you. Who says it’s just about getting older? Make this year count by celebrating with the people who mean the most to you. Keep in mind that celebrating your birthday should always be fun! So have a great time, don’t worry about every little thing, and just let go.
Who says you can’t travel on your birthday? The COVID-19 pandemic has taken over major cities causing many people to panic and go into lockdown. Why let that ruin your trip? Book a ticket to somewhere fun, grab the essentials, and hit the road!
There are still plenty of countries where it’s safe to travel so take advantage of this. Don’t second guess yourself because you’re afraid of becoming infected, it’s an irrational fear. Go out there and do something that will bring you closer to the people who mean the most to you.
You can also explore your city! The lockdown might be affecting most places you go to, but this doesn’t mean there aren’t any cool things to see in your town. Do some research by using the internet or asking people who live nearby what cool places they know about. Go away for an afternoon or day and just enjoy yourself! You can find old buildings that are over one hundred years old, parks with beautiful gardens, hidden gems only known by locals, etc. There is so much fun waiting for you to discover it! Don’t let fear stop you from enjoying any part of life.
Making a bucket list will help you get things done in your life, but they will also feel like part of something special if they can contribute in any way. You will find so much satisfaction and happiness when you can cross things off your bucket list because you achieved what others only dreamed of. Make a wish list and send it to someone so they can buy you a gift, paint your nails, or take you on a day trip while all of your family members chip in on making sure everything goes great!
Here are some of the adventure bucket list ideas you can use on your birthday.
1) Take a Photo Journey Through Time
Travel through the history of photography and see how much it has evolved since its very first incarnation. See what kind of photographic equipment was used to create each shot, how much it would cost now, and if you could still buy it today.
2) Take a trip somewhere new
Visit a new part of town, go to an unfamiliar grocery store, or somewhere unknown. You will be surprised what you have missed out on all that time. Taking a trip will give you a new perspective on life and will let you experience and enjoy things that you never knew existed.
3) Create A Memory Board For Someone You Love
Make someone’s life better by making them a memory Board filled with things You have done together. This is a thoughtful gift. Thoughtful gifts are often more valuable to people than just money or gifts.
4) Have an adult sleepover
If you are feeling nostalgic, have an adult sleepover with your friends. Don’t stay up all night playing video games or talking about school, but curl up under blankets together and do things that were once considered fun in your childhood. As simple as this can make you remember what fun used to feel like.
5) Travel back in time with your favorite show or movie
Travel through the evolution of your favorite show or film by seeing what they looked like from when they first came out until now. This is a great way to see how much these things have grown over time and can bring back a lot of memories.
6) Hit the casino
Visit a casino and play your best. Get on a winning streak and spend the entire night going from machine to machine, attempting to milk as much as you can out of your luck. You might not win big, but it’s always fun to see how many small wins you can get throughout an evening. We don’t endorse gambling but a little bit here and there is entertaining and could result in a positive win!
7) Visit a museum
Go see the major artifact at your local museum. Perhaps this is something that has always interested you, or perhaps it’s an object you have never heard of before. No matter what, seeing things in person gives your brain a different perspective on them and makes learning fun again.
8) Volunteer at a shelter
Help out those in need by visiting a local shelter and lending a helping hand during the day. Meet some furry friends and help provide them with food and water while they wait for their forever home.
9) Go camping
Get back to the basics by spending some time outdoors without all of the modern-day conveniences of life. There is nothing quite like waking up in a tent, going to sleep under the stars, and having an adventure by yourself or with friends.
10) Go skydiving
Take up skydiving as soon as possible and learn how to fall gracefully from high altitudes. You’ll feel like you’re flying when the wind whips past your face and you land safely back on the ground.
Enjoy your favorite films with friends without leaving your home. Simply log into Netflix, pick the movie you want to watch, and invite people to sync up with you through Netflix Party.
