How to find Birthday freebies in the UK

Don’t you just love celebrating your birthday?! Coincidently it was mine 2 weeks ago! Whoop!

I secretly love it when I hear the notifications on my phone go wild. Probably one of the only times, friends you haven’t spoken to in ages messages you, and it feels like we were back to how it was. Just gives you the feels! The good kind!

Maybe it’s an age thing, birthdays used to be massive night outs or huge parties and now I am perfectly content with good food and few cheeky cocktails with your closest friends. Nothing beats banter over good food! Well except skydiving or maybe crazy golf…..Oh and cake, definitely must have cake…mmmm….I love cake.

The one day of the year that is all about you to spend however you like! (within reason obviously, don’t go too crazy now)

Here’s the thing, it’s also a good opportunity to score yourself some lovely freebies. Why? Cause…you, my friend are special! I’m currently trying to convince my friends to do it.

I have accumulated and signed up to a number of retailers over the years as you do, and some or most of them are very generous in rewarding their customers with freebies for your birthday.

So, for those of you with a birthday coming up, here’s a list of offers and freebies in the UK available to all of you birthday boys and girls.

It makes your day feel a little more special than it already is!


1. Space N.K

This store stocks amazing brands, some I never heard of till they mention it. I love their membership, just go on their website, and register to become a N.Dulge member. You will receive an email for a voucher for a free gift! The gift can sometimes defer to the one specified in the email, as it is what is available that month but it is still a good one. You can either add it to an online order or print it off or show the email and they will take your details in store to get it 100% free. One year, I received the Nuxe oil for the first time which I’m a huge fan of now.

2. Paperchase

Treated myself to a few props to take pictures from here. You’ll receive a free £5 voucher to spend within two weeks of your birthday when you sign up for a free Treat Me card (no purchase necessary) or you can register it online.

3. The Body Shop

Just pop in store and get yourself a Love your Body card which is now free of charge, and you will receive £5 voucher to spend in your birthday month.

Soft, gooey, free cookie on your birthday? Yes and yes please! Just sign up to their mailing list.

Totally free juice/smoothie on your birthday for Vibe card members

For my birthday, I took on Las Iguanas and their 2 for 1 yummy cocktails and Space N.K where I received Vita Liberata Body Blur which I recently discovered that it was used in the Victoria Secret fashion show a few days ago! First tanning product I’ve ever owned – this should be fun…


I have mainly stuck to the UK region and if anyone knows of any other freebies, please list them in the comments. The more the merrier!

Has anyone managed to get some great freebies on their birthday before? I love to hear about them!
