Finding a birthday gift for an LGBTQ can be complicated, but we have some helpful tips for you.
You will not see a huge listing of present ideas for an LGBTQ's birthday here. You will receive pointers and recommendations for getting the perfect birthday item for them.
A gift that is fabulous and personal will always beat a token gift like candles and novelties, gay-straight or otherwise. This is a great opportunity to use your observation skill and think about things you have seen or noticed while spending time with them. This can be inspirational gold and can spark a creative birthday gift idea for them.
Look at their interest and hobbies and see if that inspires a gifting idea. At the very least this should point you in the right direction.
Make it something that they would never get for them themselves. Go nuts and try to make it fun. If you have similar tastes then look for things you might like.
Do you know their favorite color or a fav activity? Even something small like that can help you find more insight into a potential gift idea. Sometimes people can be guarded about letting people know personal details. You may have to get creative to figure out more about them but it will be worth it.
Throw a party and invite your straight and LGBTQ friends, plan out the party details so it's a party to remember. You might even want to make it a surprise party.
Gift cards and cash are sometimes a good option because they pick what they want. However, some feel they are impersonal and cold. It can appear as if you don't know them well enough. Just know that Consumer Reports conducted a survey and discovered that 1/4 of all gift cards never get used, so the choice is yours. "Good luck, and don't fuck it up!"? ~ RuPaul's Drag Race
