To start the day, or midnight in this case.

 1. Knock your friend’s door at midnight with the most unique cake with a gift inside it

When it is a friend’s birthday we usually get cakes for two reasons. First being cutting the cake and eating it, and second being to smash it on their face! But who wants to stick to the same old boring routine? You can now actually get a unique cake made for them with a gift inside it, so at midnight when they cut the cake, there is an actual gift inside it. The gift consists of a vintage pocket watch or a locket watch, based on your preference.


2. I think a private concert is playing around the corner

Just a cake cutting is never enough. You can add on to it with a birthday surprise for your friend by adding a private concert in the background. We will organise a guitarist to sing the birthday song for your friend, along with a 20 minutes private concert singing all their favourite songs! Who wouldn’t like some Arijit Singh songs playing in the background especially for them on their special day.

3. How many phone calls are too many phone calls?

What can possibly be both, the sweetest and the most annoying way to wake up on your birthday? Get a stranger to call your friend and wish them first thing in the morning. But it doesn’t stop here! This surprise for your friend carries on through out the day, where ten different strangers call at ten different times and talk about their favourite things. It is only during the tenth call, the person behind this surprise is revealed. But this surprise gift is definitely going to leave your friend guessing all day long!

4. Favourite food in the morning will guarantee a great start to the day

Waffles & pancakes or idli & dosa, whatever your friend loves to start their day with, get a takeaway from their favourite breakfast place and surprise them with a lovely breakfast in bed. There is definitely no better way to start the day. As they say, nothing builds the mood like some good food.
