How to Use Famous Birthdays as A Gift Idea
If you have no idea of what to give your loved ones or friends, you may take inspiration for good gift ideas from birthdays of famous people!
- Know the person’s birthdate
- Look for their "birthday twin", a person who has the same birthday as they do.
- Think of a gift that they will love, which is their birthday twin can also relate.
- Write a down to inform them about the connection
For example, let’s say your husband, a dedicated career man who loves reading business and finance books, celebrates his birthday on the 8th of April.
Why don’t you give him a personal finance book whose author, Robert Kiyosaki, happens to be his birthday twin?
You can even place a note saying:
“Two dedicated and brilliant men are celebrating their birthdays today: Robert Kiyosaki and you. I hope this book reminds you that when things go down, I will always be around. Love you sweetie!”
For your daughter born on April 11th, who enjoys pretty underthings, use the inspiration of her birthday twin, Victoria's Secret Angel, Alessandra Ambrosio.
You could gift her some new bras and panties, or perhaps some lotions, with a note,
“Two gorgeous ladies are having their birthdays today: YOU and Alessandra Ambrosio. I hope this gift will remind you that you are beautiful--inside and outside. Love, Mom"
