  • Birthday Gifts for Her

    What do you buy for the woman who has everything? Well, we don't have the answer either, but we're pretty sure you'll find it in our Gifts for Her edit. We are the masters of exceptional gifts for 'pinch-me' prices after all.
  • Birthday Gifts for Him

    When he says he doesn't want anything for his birthday, he doesn't mean it (sorry). Treat the birthday boy to luxe leather goods, big brand apparel, classy watches and grooming goodies at prices that'll knock your socks off.
  • Birthday Gifts for Kids

    Oh, to be young again. Be the one to put a beaming smile on their face and inject a bit of birthday magic with big brand toys and treats. From games and gadgets to books, fancy dress and pjs, spoil 'em something silly.

    They may not have a clue what's going on, but that's not the point. The point is it's their first birthday on this planet, so they deserve an extra special gift. Adorable branded baby gift ideas for up to 60% less* await.

Birthday gifts they'll love

When it comes to spectacular and unique birthday gifts, we believe we've got it in the bag. The modesty? Well, we'll work on that...

  • Jewellery

    Let's be real. Nobody wants to play 'guess the size' when it comes to clothes, so play it safe with some classic jewels instead. From high-end and costume pieces to gold, silver and diamonds, spoil her something silly.
  • Body, Bath & Beauty

    With spa-worthy beauty products at bubble bath prices, you've come to the right place for a bday pressie that's within budget. Gift the gift of a priceless self care sunday. Who wants to fork out for an overpriced spa anyway?
  • Handbags

    Sick of her hints? There's few feelings better than the feeling of a new handbag, so we'll back her on this occasion. Treat the lady in your life to that designer bag she's lusted after for up to 60% less than the RRP.
  • Men's Watches

    Watches are a guy's best friend. (We totally just made that up, but think we're onto something here). Treat the fella in your life to a swanky big brand watch for a steal. The best part? Boxed gift = minimal wrapping, huzzah.
  • Men's Trainers

    For the brother who hates everything or the hubby who refuses to part from his beloved holey pair, a pair of brand spanking new trainers is the answer. What better b-day gift than a box-fresh pair of big brand trainers?
  • Women's Trainers

    Fast track straight to the top of her good books by securing a pair of big brand trainers she's had her sneaker-loving eyes on for up to 60% less than the RRP. Yes, really. Shh, we won't tell her if you don't.

Still unsure of the perfect pressie?

    Looks like you've got a loves-a-bit-of-everything giftee who's notoriously known for re-gifting gifts on your hands. Not to worry because your gifting fairy godmother has a plan B. One of our never-expiring gift cards of course, huzzah!

How to nail the ultimate virtual birthday party

When it comes to the annual birthday bash, as much as we'd love to have all our nearest and dearest under one roof, sadly it's not always possible (*sobs*). It's time to get creative...

  • Virtual fancy dress

    Birthday diva sets the fancy dress theme, all video attendees are tasked with decorating their video background to suit, and the best costume wins a Mariah Carey-worthy karaoke rendition of their fave song from the one with the worst costume. Fair deal?
  • Decorate to the maxx

    When it comes to decorations for an indoor bash, it's go big or go home. Pinterest the life out of it, build a balloon arch, go to town with streamers and banners, and create a selfie wall with tinsel curtains. YOLO!
  • Host a virtual silent disco

    We all love a silent disco, right? All video attendees press play on a playlist at the exact same moment, plug in the headphones and dance the night away. Don't forget to share those screens! Birthday diva gets to name and shame the worst dad dancer.

The birthday gift that keeps on gifting

We'll let you into a little secret. Our gift cards are the best in all the land. They can be personalised, spent across all our departments, used in Homesense and TK Maxx stores, and online at – so they can get what they really want! Phew, that was a mouthful. Want to know the best part? They never ever expire. So that last-minute birthday gift panic? Sorted.

We don't just do birthdays, no siree

You should know by now that here at TK Maxx, we're not a one-trick pony. Oh no. We like to have our fingers in as many gifting pies as humanly possible. From birthdays to housewarmings to engagements, thank-yous and sorry-I-spilt-wine-on-your-carpet, whatever the occasion, we've got a gift for it.
