A birthday is supposed to be that one day of the year that's all about you. That is, of course, if your birthday doesn't fall around the holidays. Having a Christmas birthday during the holidays might seem like a magical time to celebrate.
Unfortunately, a holiday birthday tends to be shadowed by the holiday season itself.
After a while, these holiday babies get used to their big day being clumped together with the holidays. But this shouldn't be.
A Christmas birthday should be a time of the year when friends and family shower you with love and affection, where everyone comes together in celebration of life — not stuck behind the shadows of the holiday.
So, let's take the Christmas birthday people and lift them out of the shadows and into the light. Here are some ways that you can make sure that their Christmas birthday isn't overshadowed by the holidays.
How to Make a Christmas Birthday Special
Have a Christmas Birthday Party
Everyone deserves to have a special day that's all about them, and this includes a party! However, the person who has a Christmas birthday might find that their birthday conflicts with their friends and family's holiday party schedule. This is why it's important to schedule ahead of time so that everyone can block it off in their calendars.
If their Christmas birthday falls during the week, think of a fun activity to do before going out for dinner. There are loads of different activities this time of year, such as ice skating, going to a matinee, or even taking a stroll outside as long as you make it all about their birthday rather than Christmas. Check out these eco-friendly birthday party tips.
Have a Christmas-free Zone
Try to create a space that is Christmas-free. For example, don't wrap the birthday person's birthday presents in Christmas paper and avoid giving them Christmas-themed cards. Likewise, if you're having a dinner party, keep your dinner decorations geared towards birthdays rather than a Christmas theme.
When picking an activity to do, avoid anything that is too associated with Christmas. For example, avoid going to any Christmas markets or festivals. There are a lot of arts and crafts fairs during this time, so check to see if it's geared towards Christmas or just a general fair.
Try to keep the Christmas birthday person in mind, and pick something that they'd enjoy.
Have a Birthday Cake
There are so, so, so many delicious treats during Christmas, so it's hard to avoid having Christmas desserts for the Christmas birthday. It's so tempting, but they must have their own birthday cake. Birthday cake is tradition and the Christmas birthday person deserves to have their own birthday cake.
If the Christmas birthday person is born on Christmas Day, it's even more critical that you make sure they have their own birthday cake. It gives them a chance to feel the attention and know that they are special.
One Gift or Two Gifts?
Do You Want One Big Gift or Two Separate Gifts?
This question is one of the most hated questions from any Christmas birthday baby. Everyone thinks that because your birthday is on holiday, that you'd prefer one gift rather than two. But not to sound rude, everyone else gets two separate gifts, so should the Christmas birthday baby! Fair is fair, right?
Money can be a little tight during the holidays. We get that. So getting two gifts for one person can be a little heavy on your pocketbooks. Since two gifts are a must, try giving them something super personalized and something that they'll remember forever.
You could give them a birthday video gift.
Why a Birthday Video Gift?
Besides the birthday cake, the gift is the best part of a birthday party. A birthday video gift brings together all of the birthday person's favorite people into one video. In addition, all their loved one's video messages are collected into a beautiful personalized birthday video gift.
You can share many emotions, smiles, laughter, tears of joy with a birthday video gift. It's truly a gift that they'll remember and want to watch over and over again — a gift of sweet memories.
