16 Free Things You Can Get on Your Birthday in Toronto

16 Free Things You Can Get on Your Birthday in Toronto

Since I just celebrated my birthday, so I thought it’d be a fun idea to share free stuff you can get on your birthday in Toronto!

It’s funny that as you get older, birthdays start to get less and less important – but even so, I love me some free stuff.

Since my birthday just crept up on me this year, I didn’t take advantage of any free things, but hopefully you manage to take advantage of all the free stuff you can get on your birthday in Toronto.

Some of these things are actually free, while others require purchase in order to get something free.

Without further ado, here are free things you can get on your birthday in Toronto!

Be sure to also follow me on Instagram and TikTok – I share a lot more content on those platforms that don’t make it to the blog!
