How to Find a Great Gift for a June Birthday

We believe the first rule of gift giving is to get them what they want!

If you have no idea of what to give your loved ones or colleagues, you may take inspiration for a gift from the birthdays of famous people!


It works like this:

  1. Know the person’s birthdate

  2. Look for their "birthday twin", a person who has the same birthday as they do.  

  3. Use their birthday twin to inspire birthday gift ideas.  

  4. Select and a gift and note the birthday twin as a source of inspiration in your card. 

For example, let's say you need a gift for your brother's birthday on June 8th.


Ever since your brother was young, he's loved to build things---first with wooden blocks, then Legos and now he's toying with the 3-D printer at school.


Looking at the list of famous birthdays, you'd find that June 8th is also the birthday of one of the world's greatest architects, Frank Lloyd Wright. You could gift him a Lego set of one of Wright's iconic buildings. 

You can even include a note saying:

“Two great men were born on this day: 
you and one of the greatest architects of all time, Frank Lloyd Wright.
Enjoy this gift and build many great things.
Happy Birthday!"
