Making birthdays special with Moonpig!

A couple of days ago we celebrated my husband's birthday. The boys love birthdays and get really excited about them weeks in advance, making plans and thinking about which cake they would like! Anyone would think it was their birthdays! This year however has been a little different. Although things are beginning to open up again following the lockdown restrictions, some activities are still off limits such as parties and meals out with friends and family for example. I am also over forty weeks pregnant now so I am having to be extra careful due to being in a more vulnerable group. This has meant I still haven't accessed a shop since the start of lockdown. As a result, I was a little unsure of just how we could make his birthday special this year or even what gifts I could buy seeing as leisurely browsing the shops for inspiration has been off-limits. 

Luckily Moonpig was there to solve our lockdown birthday dilemma! Firstly, as I'm sure you'll be aware, Moonpig stock a wide array of cards for every occasion that can even be personalised. I love personalised items, they are the perfect way to let someone know you are thinking of them and make wonderful keepsakes for the recipient too. You can address the card to be delivered to the individual which is perfect if you are unable to visit them in person. I browsed the selection of birthday cards for husbands and was happy to see that there were many to choose from. My husband is a big fan of the Violent Veg birthday cards and always seems to select these when he buys them for other people and so I loved that I could not only select one for him but I could also personalise it with his name and a message too! The card even arrived the very next day! 


Moonpig also stock a wonderful selection of gifts too including food and drink items, gift hampers, flowers, balloons, gift experiences and much, much more! I know my husband always loves to receive alcohol, fudge or snacks on his birthday and so I was delighted to find such a fabulous selection which meant I could tick every box. 

This beer and snacks tray was quite simply the perfect gift for him; beer, crisps, nuts, salami and pork crackling- what more could he need!

Moonpig also had a selection of fudge and chocolate gifts and so I was able to present him with a lovely selection of fudge from Fudge Kitchen. The box was adorned with a 'happy birthday' sleeve to make it even more special. 


My husband also loves whisky and so this selection of four individual blended malt whisky miniatures was right up his street! 


The Whiskies Scratch Map also made a unique and interesting gift for him. This bucket list poster featuring 100 whiskies is a great gift for any whisky enthusiast. They can scratch off each one as sampled meaning they will be a whisky connoisseur in no time!

And what birthday would be complete without a balloon? This helium balloon arrives ready-inflated so the birthday celebrations can begin straight away!


Moonpig really came to the rescue this year! Thanks to them, my husband was able to enjoy a selection of high quality fun and unique gifts which were just to his liking. He may have had to share his fudge with two cheeky boys but I'm pretty sure he had a happy day to remember!
