After getting married 12 years ago, I (not so gingerly) explained to my husband that in my world, birthdays are a big deal. While I don’t demand pricy gifts, a bunch of fun little surprises and heartfelt goodies add an extra dose of happiness to my special day.
Fortunately, many companies offer birthday freebies for boys and girls of all ages. Here are 10 of my favorites that you can find on the website Hey! It’s Free!, which features a long list of other freebies.
