Top 5 Brilliant Birthday Event Ideas!

Save With Shareagift Towards … A Brilliant Birthday

The same thing happens every year, someone’s birthday is coming up and your in charge of sorting out the event but you push it to the back of your mind and before you know it there’s only 2 days left and you end up booking a last minute meal or having a few drinks, and then heading out to the nearest bar or nightclub. Well fear not, Shareagift has your back this summer! We have come up with five summer birthday event ideas that are sure to make anyone’s celebration a day to remember!

1 – Luau Party

It’s summer, the sun is shining (hopefully) and what better way to embrace the season than throwing a Hawaiian themed luau party! With everyone dressed up in hula skirts and leis, you will be transported to a tropical island! This event gives you an excuse to make some amazing and exotic cocktails and for everybody to show off their limboing skills! Sites like eBay and partycity have some great Hawaiian decorations and party games. This is the perfect idea for any sun loving beach goer!

2 – Wine Tasting

For a more sophisticated event, wine tasting is a great idea for a birthday evening in. These evenings can be done in a variety of ways. Guests can save money together and buy a few boxes of different wines to try or everyone can bring their favourite bottle with them and introduce everyone else to it. Accompanied by a range of cheese and biscuits this event is great for those who love to spend their time relaxing and chatting with friends.

3 – Outdoor Movie Night

All you will need for this event is a white sheet and a projector and you can turn your garden into an ourtdoor movie screening. You can have movie themed snacks and drinks and have everyone vote on a film or let the birthday girl/boy showcase their favourite movie. This is a great idea for a film-loving friend and it’s a great money saving alternative to a big night out. Check out allrecipies for some great movie themed snack ideas!

4 – Museum Visit

For something a little different why not plan a birthday event around a museum trip. With science and natural history museums, galleries and gardens there is something to suit everyone’s taste. This is a great day out if the weather isn’t looking too good and can be followed by a dinner out or lunch in a chique museum café.

5 – Extreme Sports Party

For the daredevil and thrill seeking friend why not throw an extreme sports event. Take everyone kayaking, bungee jumping or motocrossing, there are plenty of sports to choose from. Shared experiences like this are very memorable and will encourage everyone to get involved and have an amazing time.

Shareagift can help you save money with friends to fund the perfect birthday event. Whether it be limboing, kayaking or cocktail making, with Shareagift you can save with others and plan for the ultimate celebration that will be remembered for years to come!

Our Top 10 Incredibly Useful Websites!

It emerged this week that a website for refugees which was set up by a couple in Berlin is growing in popularity. The site matches people who have a spare room in cities across Germany with refugees who are searching for accommodation. The couple came up with the idea when they decided they wanted to use their own spare room to home a refugee. They managed to raise six months rent by requesting help from friends and family.

We love the idea behind this useful website and this just goes to show how we are constantly finding new ideas and different ways to use the Internet. With this in mind we set about looking for some of the most exciting and useful websites that the web has to offer and have listed our top 10.

1 – Camelcamelcamel

This handy website lets you track the prices of any Amazon product so that you can be sure you’re getting the best deal. You will be able to see when the cheapest time is to buy your product and can even set reminders on items and the website will send you an email when they fall below a certain price.

2 – Down For Everyone or Just Me?

Pretty self explanatory, this website allows you to type in a URL and will then tell you whether the rest of the world is having problems accessing the site or whether it’s just you.

3 – A Good Movie To Watch

This will save you all those hours of endlessly scrolling through Netflix trying to find something good to watch. You can chose what sort of film the site picks for you based on genre, mood or by using a random search. The site also focuses on more indie and less well known films, which usually means that you haven’t seen them.

4 – Boxoh

As long as you have a tracking number this site lets you find out where in the world your package is, how far it has come, and its estimated arrival time. Very useful, especially when you are unsure which day it will arrive.
