Is buying birthday presents for your partner ever easy? You’ve either been doing it for a long time, and have therefore exhausted all your known options, or you are still in the awkward getting to know each other phase, and so 1. Don’t know them well enough for gift giving to be an easy feat, and 2. Want to be wary not to peak too early by setting the bar impossibly high for yourself! I tell ya, sometimes birthdays are more trouble than they’re worth. If you refuse to see the glass half empty like we do, then let us reward your optimism and save you the RSI by providing plenty of options that are sure to be SO approved! 

I mean, let’s get straight down to brass tacks here. Minxy Mitch cannot be accused of false advertising! Contents include two A Glass of (Wine)s, a Black Blaze Seaweed Candle, Bahen & Co chocolate, a Frenchie Oh La La Water-based Love Lube, a 12-pack of Frenchie the Beret condoms, a 3-pack of Frenchie the Beret condoms + hyaluronic acid, and Frenchie Le Masque and Lovers’ Dice Set. Happy Birthday indeed!

Relaxed Rachel is the perfect birthday gift for your partner if their idea of a perfect night is - no offence - sans you. Filled with two A Glass of (Wine)s, Addition Studio Incense Set, Addition Studio Clay Mask Set, Bahen & Co House Blend chocolate, Addition Studio Eye Pad, Addition Studio Bath Soak, and Addition Studio Body Scrub. Really, it’s a self-care night for them and a guilt-free solo night out for you; suddenly birthday gift baskets, not such a bad idea!

Gourmet Greg has had a glow up, and we think this makes a very worthy gift hamper for your significant other! He contains a bottle of red, white or non-alcoholic wine, Old Bones Chilli Oil, Olsson’s X Four Pillars Rare Dry Gin Salt, Bramble & Hedge Chai, Wild Fig & Raspberry Nougat, and Maya Sunny Honey: macadamia crunch. 

You’re aware that happy wife means happy life, right? Let us help you achieve that with our Happy Natalie hamper!

Case in point: this hamper includes a bottle of champagne, Ferm Living Ripple Champagne Saucers, a Black Blaze candle, Bahen & Co Macadamia Milk Chocolate, and Bramble & Hedge Chai Wild Fig & Raspberry Nougat.

Terrific Tony likes a night out with the boys. If that rings true for your partner, this might be the hamper for them! Stereotypically bloke-ish contents include White Possum Whisky or a gin flight, Old Bones Chilli Oil, Tiger Buck beef jerky, Huff & Puff pork crackle, and Bahen & Co milk chocolate. 

Tasteful Tim has a penchant for finer things, so we made sure his contents reflected this! Finer things include a bottle of red, white or non-alcoholic wine (obvs), a Black Blaze Seaweed Candle, Flou Linen Napkins, Bahen & Co Macadamia Milk Chocolate, Bramble & Hedge Sticky Date Caramel Nougat, and Wondaree Macadamias.

We’re sorry to disappoint, Perfect Pablo does not come with a chiselled Spanish man! We’ve included the next best thing though; Pourtable Drip Coffee Bags from Pablo & Rusty’s, as well as Pablo & Rusty’s Hot Chocolate. And because caffeine should always be accompanied by a treat, we've included Wondaree Macadamias, Bahen & Co chocolate, and Bramble & Hedge nougat. 

Birthday gift baskets are about to be the first thing you think of in order to nail your partner’s birthday present! Because let’s face it, no matter how much it’s downplayed, it’s always gonna be a competition. We’ve got our fingers crossed you take the trophy!
