My bad birthday habits are changing this year, and I am sharing a few of my methods with y’all just in case a few of you share my party procrastination problems. I joined the Hallmark Rewards Program this fall and am loving the savings on cards and gifts. I also created a birthday basket where I keep our family’s party basics as well as the necessities for attending parties and sending cards.
