Birthday Present Ideas
For millennia we have celebrated birthdays. It started around 3000BC with the anniversary of the Pharaoh's coronation or rebirth as a living god. The idea spread and evolved, starting with the very wealthy. It was the Romans that began celebrating birthdays for the common man. Yes, men only. Women’s birthdays weren’t celebrated until the 12th century.
It was a Pagan belief that on the day of our birth we gain a spirit that watches over us. But on days of great change, such as turning a year older, evil spirits are drawn in. These are repelled by good cheer, well wishes and noise-makers. Presents were given to increase the positive vibes. That sounds like a party to me!
Today we celebrate year after year, and gift-giving is still key to increasing cheer. It’s easy to reach a point where you don’t know what to buy. So we’ve compiled some unusual birthday present ideas for you, each can be personalised with specialist printing and engraving.
