Our story

We are Kate Long and Lucy Sheehan - two mums from Suffolk with a shared love of life, laughter, friends and family.


In 2018 we decided to act on an urge to create something together - a business through which we could make the lives of other mums more easy.

Not Another Birthday was born - thoughtfully selected presents in beautiful, themed boxes or bundles for children aged 3-8 years old, which we hope is a solution to the many birthdays that pop up throughout the year.

Being mums to two children each, we have experienced the deluge of birthday party invitations that arrive when ‘the smalls’ start primary school, along with the many birthdays we celebrate together as part of our large circle of family and friends and its many associated kiddies.

The name ‘Not Another Birthday’ is of course slightly tongue in cheek - we all get the ‘not another one!’ feeling of despair when we realise we need yet another present, but of course….everyone loves a birthday.  What we have created is the easy solution to this - thoughtful, beautifully packaged gifts with a focus on activity, creativity or getting outside - all based on themes that children love.

What’s also really important to us is that our gifts are affordable for everyone, making them a quick, easy, reliable, but perfect birthday present.  Our boxes all start at just £20 and you can add extra bits in to make them even more amazing. Bundles are £8 so are a great solution to school or nursery parties.

We have absolutely loved bringing ‘Not Another Birthday’ to life and we hope that your little ones love opening our beautiful boxes and bundles.
