43 OF THE BEST BIRTHDAY FREEBIES - GIFTS YOU DON'T HAVE TO PAY FOR ON YOUR BIG DAY

 

When it comes to birthdays, you're probably used to receiving a card, flowers, or a slew of "Happy Birthday!" postings on your Facebook page. It's also your birthday, which means you get to eat out for free for breakfast, lunch, and dinner! Alternatively, you can purchase presents from some of your preferred retailers! If you're looking for places that offer you free birthday gifts, one of the best ways to locate them is to join their email list or newsletters. When you sign up, you'll usually see a list of any special offers that are available to you. 

As long as it's your birthday, you're entitled to a freebie. We've compiled a list of companies that provide freebies in celebration of your birthday!
