No matter if you’re a Libra, Gemini, or Capricorn, seeing another birthday is reason to celebrate. And what’s better than a whole day dedicated to celebrating you? Free birthday gifts, of course.

Your birthday is your special day to celebrate YOU. But sometimes, life happens, and we may not always be able to afford a proper celebration. Bills still need to get paid, and gas prices aren’t cheap. This leaves many people having to decide between treating themselves to a birthday gift or keeping a roof over their heads. And for most people, staying off the streets is definitely the preferred option.

But fortunately, in the words of rapper Cardi B, “I can get ’em both. I don’t wanna choose.”

And you don’t have to choose either! There are plenty of companies willing to celebrate your birthday with you with free birthday gifts.

How To Get Free Birthday Gifts

Most of the time, all you have to do is sign up for their email newsletter or membership subscription. Then, when your birthday comes around, you can watch the birthday gifts roll in. Some companies offer coupons or promo codes for discounted items. Others give customers a free gift WITH a purchase.

But what we REALLY want are the freebies! And there are plenty of companies willing to gift them to you upon request.

What better way to kick off the party than with free gifts? If you want to take advantage of the birthday freebies some companies provide, take a look at this list of beauty companies that will give you a free birthday gift to celebrate:
