Birthday Present & Gift Ideas

690 items

Cake is good, champagne is better, but no birthday celebration is complete without an ‘oh, you shouldn't have!’ pressie. Depending on what milestone birthday you're buying for, we have birthday present ideas for all ages. So, whether you're searching for the perfect way to say Happy 18th, 21st, 40th and even 80th, you'll find era-appropriate birthday gift ideas for whoever you're celebrating in our curated collection. And because the best birthday gifts do double duty as keepsakes, we’ve included plenty of thoughtful, personalised options that’ll go straight to the pool room!

Ideally, your special someone will have been dropping birthday present hints for months leading up to their big day, but if they’ve given you no leads and you’re totally stumped for ideas, don’t sweat it – we’re here to help. And we’ve come armed with a collection of cool birthday gifts that’ll please the most hard-to-buy-for peeps (Dad, we’re totally looking at you…).

Let’s start with the ladies! Trying to come up with meaningful, out-of-the-box birthday gift ideas for her can be a daunting task, but we’ll let you in on a little secret: Personalised keepsakes make for the most special birthday gifts. We’re talking engraved jewellery, monogrammed leather accessories, custom-printed cushions or bespoke glassware. Whether you’re shopping for your teenage daughter, attempting to win points with your impossible-to-please mother-in-law or trying to tick ‘birthday gift for wife’ off your list of to-dos, we make finding winning birthday gifts for her a cinch with easy-as personalisation options.

Gents can be a bit more tricky – but you can’t get him socks and undies every year, so let us take you through some of the top birthday gifts for men. If he’s hitting a milestone Big 0 birthday, you’re going to want something extra meaningful, so look for cufflinks, travel bags, glassware or leather accessories that you can put your own stamp on. (An engraved beer tankard or whisky glass tops our list of the best birthday gifts for boyfriend, while a personalised watch stand or leather wash bag would make a thoughtful birthday gift for husband.) Not feeling the pressure of a milestone number? Have fun with his gift! Novelty socks, a quirky printed tee or a shower beer holder will make him smile. Mission: Accomplished!

When it comes to your gal pals, go luxe. We’re big believers that if you love her you should you spoil her rotten, and nothing says ‘indulgent birthday gifts for girls’ like personalised Prosecco glasses – and preferably a bottle of bubbles on ice! Other little luxuries like a hand-stamped necklace, glitter phone case or customised scented candles are some of our favourite birthday gifts for friends... (We hope you’re reading this, BFF!)

So, whether you’re looking for sentimental keepsakes or fun, unusual birthday gifts, you’ll find giftspo galore in our collection, cleverly organised by milestone B’day. Feel free to save us a slice of cake as a thank you...
