Birthdays are the days when we receive the most number of phone calls, messages, and gifts, since people who love us want to make us feel special. For those staying away from India, birthdays are the times when you yearn for your family and loved ones. In the recent past, the Indian population in the United States has increased tremendously, making the US a massive importer of manpower from India. With this, the need for emotional support from family back home has also increased.

Birthdays are perhaps one of the days when you can send your love in the form of gifts. We have classified gifts on these four human emotional factors:

  • What we do
  • How we look
  • What we say
  • How we say it

The last one ‘How we say it’ is the most important one. Most of us find it hard to express our love for our dear ones. That is when one-of-a-kind gift ideas come in handy. Gifting is an art in itself and it shows your flip-side well if played with a bit of creativity. You can shower your love by sending some birthday gifts to USA that would brighten up the day for your loved one. Here are some unique ideas that you can use to send birthday gifts to your family in the US:


Newspaper Cuttings

Prepare a collection of newspaper cuttings of all important news happening all over the country since the last birthday of your loved one. Later, bind these cuttings to make a notebook, which would take your loved one on a melancholic journey with this gift.

Barbecue Stand

Barbeque stands or beer cabinets are a perfect gift if the birthday boy/girl is a grilling enthusiast and likes to throw parties for his/her friends.

Knitted Sweaters

You will certainly make the little ones happy if you gift them a knitted sweater featuring their favourite cartoon character. You can also gift this to your grown up kids reminding them of their favourite childhood memory.

Initials on handkerchief

If it is your spouse’s birthday, you can stitch his/her name on handkerchiefs. This will be treasured forever.

Laptop skin

If you are into clay art, you can make tea cups or coffee mugs and paint on it.
