Let’s face it- adult birthdays are a far cry from the sugar-fueled extravaganzas of our youth. More often than not, a birthday may feel like little more than a reminder of your own mortality and put you in a less than celebratory mood. The best cure for this is a little bit of recognition from friends and family, and a whole lot of cake- preferably FREE cake! Read on for some of the best birthday freebies around! Note that most of these places require you to sign up for their e-mail list or free rewards programs and will send you a coupon for your free birthday stuff! Also, note that all of these freebies are only valid on the actual date of your birth unless otherwise stated.
