Whether it’s your birthday or not, there’s no denying that we all love a bargain. In fact, there’s only one thing that’s better than a bargain, and that’s something you can get for free. No matter how small it is, a freebie is enough to put a huge smile on anyone’s face. It’s a fact. 

However, did you know that there are certain places that offer you something completely free if it’s your birthday? We’ve scoured the web to find you the best freebies for your birthday, including gifts from Hobbs, Lola’s & Space NK.

Oh before begin, did you know it’s Amazon Prime Day next week? Have a look at all the Amazon Prime Day tips for saving money (here’s a hint: there are secret discounts and bargain pages that might help you out!) 

1. Free full 5 inch cake from Lola’s 

You can get a full 5 inch cake from Lola’s completely free of charge on your birthday! All you need to do is show a valid form of ID that confirms your date of birth and be a member of Lola’s ‘Love Club’ for at least 30 days before you claim it. Lola’s ‘Love Cub’ is a loyalty scheme which gives you a ‘love point’ every time you spend £1 in store. That will save you having to make one for all your family and friends!

2. Free milkshake or slice of cake from Kaspa’s

Carrying on the cake theme, you can get a free milkshake or slice of cake from Kaspa’s on your birthday! You have to show your ID and spend a minimum of £6.95, but after that, the choice is yours! The offer is also available all-day Monday to Sunday so you can go whenever you’d like!

5. Free beauty gift from Space NK

You can get a free beauty birthday gift from Space NK every year! You just have to sign up to their loyalty scheme NDULGE which allows you to earn points each time you spend money.
