Birthday Freebies UK

Who doesn't like freebies? I'm sure everyone does. I mean, who wouldn't like to enjoy things that are coming to them for free! I had been wanting to write this post ever since my birthday but a few other posts had to be written first and this one got delayed. You must have read about my birthday month earlier. If you haven't, then you can read it here and here. Yes! That's when I came across some freebies that brands offer to you birthday boys and girls out there and since it's the blog's birthday month, I've compiled this very precious list of birthday freebies for you. 

Ed's Easy Diner

Ed's offers a free milkshake voucher on your birthday. All you need to do to get that voucher is to make sure you're subscribed to their mailing list. I received my voucher a few days before my birthday and it had a validity date on it. Make sure you get yours before the date expires. I think it's valid up to a month. The best part about this voucher was that you don't need to buy anything to get the free milkshake. I loved my treat and I'm sure, you would too! They also have some offer on burgers but I don't enjoy vegetarian burgers so I didn't avail that because the meat they use isn't Halal.

I was also surprised to receive a £5 voucher from the popular Swedish brand. No purchase is necessary! You can just buy anything that costs £5 or pay the access amount in case the price is higher. I went there to avail the voucher but ended up doing a lot more shopping and my mother-in-law was staying with us during that time so she was a major support and motivator for me to buy things. 

Krispy Kreme

If you're subscribed to their mailing list, they send a voucher for a double glazed doughnut. All you need to do is to download their application. I do not have a Krispy Kreme outlet nearby so I couldn't avail it and when I travelled to the mall that was by 1 hour 15 minutes drive, I totally forgot to avail the offer. Yes, I am a mum! I am not sad about that because I'm not a huge fan of glazed donuts. For me it's too plain and too less calories! But wait! Even if your birthday is far, you can still get a FREE Krispy Kreme doughnut. Read here, to know how.

Kaspas Desserts 

You just need to go to their cafe on the day of your birthday along with a proof of your birthday to get a free regular milkshake. The photo ID that confirms your date of birth should be valid. I didn't go because I had other important things to do and I do think they should be generous enough to increase the validity than letting us avail the offer on the actual date of the birthday. You can see their offer, here

Potbelly UK 

Okay, this one's only for the Londoners to enjoy because it's just in London at the moment. Located in Westfield Stratford shopping mall at the moment, but they are planning to open more shops. You never know, one might open near you! Again, if you're subscribed to their mailing list, you will get the voucher in your inbox. I didn't know about it earlier so I wasn't subscribed and I couldn't avail it. P.S. I really like their milkshakes and Mocha is my favourite. Check out my restaurant review on Potbelly UK, here

Frankie's & Bennys

This is not totally free! It's free just for the birthday boy or girl when you order another main meal. I think I received their voucher in my email a month earlier. However, I didn't avail it but maybe next time, I certainly will. 

JRC Buffet - London

Again, only for Londoners. Only valid on the exact date of your birthday but you need to make a booking prior to your birthday date, at least 24 hours before the day. You also need to take a a guest with you who should be a full paying customer and make sure to take your valid photo ID and your reservation number along to enjoy your free birthday meal. You can check out their Free Birthday Meal offer here, and my restaurant review, here. I was not in town when I had my birthday but I went to JRC a week later so unfortunately, I couldn't avail a free meal.

Jimmy's World Buffet 

To avail their offer, you need to take along at least 6 guests and you can enjoy a free meal and a cocktail. Make sure to call and check with them prior to your visit. You can check out my restaurant review, here

Millies Cookies

For that, again, you need to be subscribed to their mailing list where you'll receive your voucher and you can collect your birthday treat from any of their stall. I also didn't avail this because I wasn't aware of if earlier. 

The Body Shop 

I love this one and I wish I had known about it earlier. The Body Shop gives £5 voucher on your birthday. For that, you simply need to be a part of their Card Club and you will be sent the voucher in your email. The voucher needs to be used within a month and the best part is that no purchase is necessary. How is that? I just joined their club today but will have to wait till next year now to avail my birthday freebie from The Body Shop. 

TIP: Always mention about your birthday to restaurant and bar staff where you're planning to dine. You might be in for an extra treat! 

From all of these, I was just able to avail the first two but it's the blog's anniversary coming up next month. Are there any treats for me coming up then? I would love some! 

P.S. There would be some giveaways coming up on the blog as well, so make sure to follow on social media.

Pots. & Co desserts

Pots & Co. has already helped me begin the celebration and they were kind enough to send two pots of their desserts which I tried recently. I'd say they do make fabulous summer desserts. Also, perfect for posh picnics! Prepared by Michelin star chefs, the desserts come in ceramic pots that can be later re-used for anything you fancy. These desserts are ready to eat, are suitable for vegetarians and gluten-free. Took me a while to check their ingredients to ensure the ingredients are good for me consume and in the process, I learnt about a few gelling agents used in their dessert range. These dessert pots can be purchased from Tesco, Ocado, Waitrose, Harrods, Selfridges to name a few retailers, and costs £2 for each pot. So, why don't you treat yourself and your birthday party guests with a Pots & Co. dessert? You can check out their range of desserts, here.
