Group wishes video

Filming a group wishes video is one of the best ways to surprise your loved one for their birthday, especially if they live far away from your place. For example, let’s say you want to surprise a friend who went abroad for higher studies. Contact all of their close friends, family members, and relatives and ask them to make a short 15 to a 30-second long video giving their wishes. It doesn’t have to be a long video. They just need to wish them a happy birthday and once you gather all the videos, convert them into a mixed video and send it to your friend. It is a very simple idea, but it will definitely bring a smile on your loved one’s face. Read also : Send Funny Happy Birthday Memes For Friend and Make Them Happy

Another great idea to make your loved one feel happy, appreciated and nostalgic is to give them a gift of your shared memories. All you need to do is get balloons filled with gas. What you also need are your photographs from the times you spent together, from the moment you met and started hanging out up to this date. Attach the photos to the balloons and put them in chronological order. Not only is it a great gift, but it will also serve as a beautiful decoration for the surprise birthday party.  

Water Balloon War Followed With a Cake Smashing Ceremony

For this idea, all you need to do is load yourself with some buckets full of water balloons. This is a great way to prank your friends on their birthday and have a surprise birthday party in their backyard. It is especially a perfect idea for hot summer days. Knock on your friend’s door and leave a bucket with water balloons in front of their house. Once they step out of their house you can launch an attack on them and start a birthday party. Call your other friends to join you. The more of you there are the better it will be. Also, what is a birthday celebration without a cake? Once you run out of water balloons start a food fight with the cake. With this much action and fun involved, your friend will remember this day for many years.
