You are working till late, you have serious deadlines, it is appraisal time and you can’t jeopardize it with one celebration which comes every year. Obviously a best birthday gift would be a raise or promotion.

5. No celebrations in Pandemic

Pandemic is an excuse that totally saves you from public celebration. Make sure you are not attending any either or other than the most urgent ones.

6. Spa Session or Meditation Retreat

Tell your friend that your sister or mom or any of your relative who you are close to gifted you a Spa Voucher or any related retreat.  It will be expired and you also want it ardently, this year is been really hard in terms of work, studies or so on. Customize it as per your suitability.

7. Am not in town

Just start spilling the beans a month before that you will be on official trip on your birthday or out of town or city for some important family event.  Make sure you are not seen or spotted anywhere in the city or on social media on that day.

8. My business partner has planned the Bash for Me

This happens very rare so it may look even more real. Tell the m your boss has kept a small bash for you or your business partner has planned one for you and you can t skip it. Work obligations you know, obviously you would have enjoyed more with your friends (wink wink).

9. Family Problems

Tell them you are required more at home as it is your kid’s exam, important school function or any other grand affair like your father’s retirement ceremony or parent’s anniversary. This excuse works well when your friends are not much into personal life.

10. Medical Emergencies

Medical emergencies always work, make an excuse that you have met with an accident and have injuries. If required send pictures of you with a bandage or scar marks. Or make this emergency for anyone else at home. Or simply tell them you are not feeling fine and you are damn upset about your health condition but there is nothing you can do.
