101 Birthday Ideas for Friends

{Blog Hop Birthday designs by C {dot} love}

It seems like once you have kids your focus shifts and birthdays are all about the kids.  I honestly can’t remember the last time we made a big deal about mine or my husband’s birthday.  But it’s time to change that!  Let’s celebrate our girlfriends, co-workers and family on their special day.  All it takes is a small thoughtful gift to brighten someones day and today we’re giving you over 100 ideas to inspire you and your gift giving, including my Root Beer Float Cake in a Jar.

Rootin Tootin Root Beer Float Cake in a Jar

I got the idea for my Rootin’ Tootin’ birthday gift from my aunt Evelyn.  She has the best ideas and I frequently bug her for inspiration.  I told her I was working on a birthday gift project and asked if she had any good ideas or sayings I could use to create something.  She sent back a fun list of ideas (I’ll have to make some of the others and share those soon), including the saying “Have a Rootin’ Tootin’ Birthday”  Birthday cake is a must on your birthday and I thought this Root Beer Float Cake in a Jar was a special little treat you could deliver to friends to wish them a Rootin’ Tootin’ birthday!

Rootin Tootin Root Beer Float Cake

This cake is easy to whip up and the recipe (I used this root beer cake recipe from Sugar Mama) will make 5-6 in the pint size Mason Jars.  Add a scoop of frozen vanilla ice cream or vanilla frosting, attach our free Rootin’ Tootin’ birthday tag and deliver to that special friend.

Have a Rootin Tootin Birthday Tag

And if you want an even easier gift idea, here’s another take on the Rootin’ Tootin’ Birthday…Root Beer Floats in a Bucket.  Buy bottles of root beer and  a small container of vanilla ice cream, place them in a metal bucket, attach the free tag and deliver.  Easy and inexpensive, but guaranteed to brighten someones special day!
