Take a look at these birthday gift ideas for anyone!

Sometimes, gifts don’t have to be the most expensive or fancy in order to show someone you care about them. Got an upcoming birthday? Stumped on what to get them? Here is a list of simple ideas to get you started on giving the best gift ever.

Picnic in a Park

…or anywhere in the great outdoors. This activity is a great way to spend time with the birthday guy or gal, especially if they enjoy spending time outside. All you have to do is prepare a meal that will carry well inside a picnic basket. You could make sandwiches or just pack a bunch of their favorite snacks to munch on. Then, you need to plan and coordinate how to get the person to your picnic spot. If you are inviting other family members or friends, the more the merrier! For this idea, all it really takes in some thought and effort put into the meal and timing in order to give them a fun experience for their special day. If you are looking for a cute picnic basket, we’ve found one on Amazon that would be great for this idea:

Make your own cookie cake

This idea is a step away from the traditional birthday cake and is easily shareable with a group of people. Making your own cookie cake is fairly easy and you can decide the correct size of the cake for the person’s special day. There are plenty of online recipes that can get you started on the baking process. Plus, the best part is decorating. Instead of having someone at the grocery store fill in a cookie cake, you could give it a try and fill in the cookie cake with as many words, jokes or icing as you think is best. And, if they enjoy baking as well, the pan is something they can keep and make their own cake again or try other recipes. Here is a cookie cake pan for you to get started on this sweet homemade treat:

Beautiful Candy Bouquet (with gift cards)

Make a bouquet of their favorite candy and add some gift cards in the mix. Normally, a candy bar or a gift card alone would be a small gift idea. But, when you put the two together, you’ve got an amazing gift they will be wowed at. For this gift idea, you need wooden skewers, a variety of candy in packs, floral foam and candy boxes to glue around the floral foam base in order to secure it. Additionally, you will need a hot glue gun to attach the skewers to the candy packs. The first step is to attach the skewers to the candy packs and the stick each skewer to the floral foam base so that the candy packs almost touch the base. Then, glue the candy boxes to the base so it will be able to stand alone. Finally, you can add some gift cards with tape to the candy packs to add an extra flair to the candy bouquet. This pack of candy would be great for such a project:

SNICKERS, M&M'S, 3 MUSKETEERS & TWIX Full Size Bars Variety Mix

30 full-size chocolate bars

Be the office hero with this chocolate variety pack when you share with the team and other coworkers.
