Birthdays are an opportunity to get together with friends and family, perhaps with those you don’t get to see too often, so having an exciting date in the diary is always something to look forward to. Whether you want to do something as a big group, with your other half or even a solo adventure. If there is a particular milestone coming up, be it a 30th, 50th, or 80th…there are some fabulous ways to celebrate that are guaranteed to deliver long-lasting memories.
You can’t get much more luxurious than popping champagne on a boat; sometimes, it's fun to splurge on something extraordinary, and to hire a day on a yacht with friends is undoubtedly up there. You will be spoilt for choice with an endless supply of stunning locations across Australia. We have our eyes on Sea Raes for a European-style escape. Their deluxe charter is incredibly spacious, with an entire crew to tend to your every need. Enjoy delicious alfresco dining on the various decks, snorkelling, jet skiing or endless fun on the blow-up slides. No matter what age you are turning, it is always good to be a big kid sometimes! Their decadent cabins come with ensuites, king-size beds and unobstructed views across the big blue; float away this birthday on an epic getaway.
Soar to new heights with your partner this year and take a trip on a seaplane adventure - you can’t beat the view from above! Sydney Seaplanes does an excellent tour of the harbour and cityscape. Fly in style in their beautifully refurbished planes for an exclusive sightseeing trip - not many get to see the Sydney Opera House from amongst the clouds! Start your journey from their historical terminal in Rose Bay and create a bespoke trip to your preferred destination, land on water or at the door of your favourite waterfront restaurant - bon voyage!
If you prefer to spend your birthday with yourself, why not book a weekend away immersed in nature with Unyoked. Recharge your mental, physical and spiritual health in one of their bespoke cabins. You will find yourself waking up to the sweet sound of silence and spending your days immersed in the stunning Australian landscape. Their range of cabins are carefully designed to cater to all your wilderness wants, from outdoor baths, firepits and complete privacy. A selection of their locations allow dogs, so feel free to take your furry friend for some extra company. Use your birthday to empower yourself and spend some solid one-on-one time nurturing your soul.
Take the opportunity of a big family birthday to get the whole gang together, hire an exclusive venue for the night and go all out on party favours. Start with some unique invitations to send out in advance to make sure everyone keeps the big day free; personalise with a small gift or even an amusing clue to a birthday surprise! Next, plan a sumptuous feast for all to enjoy; if you want to take the sting out of cooking, why not book a catering service or order from your favourite restaurant. And what is a birthday without a cake - go all out with candles and decorations to make it really special. Having a theme is often an entertaining way to get everyone excited; cowboy, great gatsby, you name it, themes are a great way to get people involved. Don’t forget some disposable cameras to capture it all!
In the event you find yourself stuck for ideas or gifts for a big birthday, we have curated our latest luxury hamper to suit such an occasion. The new Dom Perignon Gift Hamper is the perfect way to celebrate in style. With a gorgeous bottle of Dom and a selection of fine chocolates and local produce, you will 100% be the life of the party bringing this. If you can’t make it to a special birthday, sending this in advance to your loved ones will ensure a smile on their faces on the big day!
