New Year, Another Birthday!!













With a new year comes more birthdays and reasons to celebrate!!!


At Sport Bully your "Birthday is a Holiday" and we recognize your greatness and pause for your DAY! Gotta love a company who does that, Right? Just a hint for all you companies out there. We usually take the day anyway, so just give it to us!!! Moving along...


Birthday celebrations can be tailored to folks personal preferences. Here are quite a few suggestions to celebrate YOUR SPECIAL DAY!




  1. Themed Party: Choose a theme that resonates with the your interests—whether it's a favorite movie, era, book, or hobby. Decorate, dress up, and organize activities around that theme. I love a good masquerade or character themed party. Costume parties are not just for Halloween!




  2. Outdoor Adventure: Plan an outdoor adventure like a hiking trip, camping, or a day at the beach. Enjoy nature and the thrill of outdoor activities. The beach is my happy place so I would always find myself there. With family or by myself, it doesnt matter. I love the beach!



  3. Take a trip...SOLO, it will change your life: I took my first solo trip, last year and I loved every moment. You have no one to please, but yourself. No one to take care of, but yourself. No one to feed, but yourself. Get up in the morning when you want to. Walk on the beach when you want to. Watch a movie if you want to. Read a book if you want to (cover to cover, may I add?). Go swimming, go golfing, go fishing! Have fun, reflect, write, just enjoy being you. Think, Pray, meditate. Meet and talk to new people in a relaxed atmosphere. Go for a long run or a short run. OK, you get the idea.


  4. Cooking or Mixology Class: Consider booking a cooking class or mixology workshop where everyone can learn new skills while having fun together. This is a good idea. I am a licensed mixologist and the classes were so much fun!!! I enjoyed that week of school :)




  5. Spa Day: Treat birthday person or yourself to a relaxing day at a spa. Massages, facials, and pampering treatments can be a wonderful way to unwind. This one is a no brainer! I am doing this in few days for my birthday with my cousing. We are 23 hours apart. She is older. Happy Birthday Nykkol! I am going to a Spa in VA. I am not telling you the name, find your own King Spa!




  6. Game Night: Host a game night with friends and/or family. Board games, video games, or even outdoor games can create a fun and competitive atmosphere. Game nights are always a good time when you are partying at home or in a venue. This is another opportunity to dress up in costumes, and let the best costume Win!!! I think the next party I plan will be a costume party or a ball!!! What yall think? Go big or Go Home!




  7. Escape Room Challenge: Engage in an escape room adventure. It's a great way to bond and work together to solve puzzles and mysteries. I did this last year for my birthday celebration and it was REALLY fun. Just don't push and stumble on top of your loved ones, while they fall to the floor!!! LOL!!!Yes...true story!!




  8. Art or Craft Workshop: Explore creativity by attending an art workshop or trying out a craft-making session. Pottery, painting, or DIY crafts can be both enjoyable and therapeutic. Paint and Sip is always a great go to for me. I just love to paint!




  9. Cultural Experience: Visit a museum, art gallery, or attend a cultural event like a concert, theater show, or local festival.




  10. Travel Adventure: Plan a weekend getaway or a short trip to a new destination. Explore new places, try local cuisines, and create lasting memories with loved ones. This is my usual go to. My family was with me on the 1st part of my solo celebration. LOL, I forgot to mention that. I had a heavy dose of family before solitude. I recommend that, for sure!!! No one really wants to be alone, until they want to be alone.




If you are planning for someone else, remember to consider the person's preferences, interests, and comfort levels when planning a birthday celebration. Personal touches and thoughtful gestures often make the celebration more special.
