Every gift is special in my opinion. It means that people are thinking of you and that’s the best part. But even better when those presents become life experiences, and the best one is travelling, especially when you share the moments with family and friends. The most special one was when I turned XX (never ask a girl her age), my husband took me to New York City to celebrate my birthday. He arranged a dinner with friends who I hadn’t seen for a long time. And after that, I had a great experience running on the High Line, the dismissed Metro Line, and on the last day, watching the amazing New York City Ballet performance!

My best birthday present ever was on my 30th birthday from my amazing partner. Waking up in the morning, I was presented with a huge box, which upon opening released a huge amount of helium balloons with a tiny parachuting soldier attached to the bottom (the kind you play with as a kid). A little confused, I asked what it was, to be met with the response: “You will be jumping out of a plane in 2 hours”. Excited and scared in one, the adrenaline kicked in. I had always wanted to do a skydive, but never had the nerve to book it. The spontaneous nature of the present and lack of time to say “No” meant, I had the best birthday present ever. A memory I will never forget and what a birthday to remember.

I cannot decide whether my best birthday present were festival tickets or a tattoo. The tickets were the best present because of all the memories it brought along: I spent almost a full week with good friends, great music and enough laughter for the rest of the year. The tattoo I just got for my 30th birthday. I did not decide yet what tattoo I want to get, but I hope that this will be the best gift then since it will be forever.

My kids are my everything, so my best birthday present naturally is the fact that I’m able to spent my birthdays with them, with laughs and hundreds of kisses. What more can a man achieve than to cherish every moment with whom you love and see your children grow day by day. Lots of love to every PUMA colleague all over the world.

As I’m a very active person, I always ask my friends if they want to play beach tennis, volleyball or go jogging with me. A few years ago, I was obsessed with skydiving and I ended up asking my friends to come with me every week, but nobody wanted to do it. So, after all my persistent requests, my friends finally gave me a skydiving session for my birthday. It was a pity that nobody wanted to share this crazy experience with me, but as you can see from the photo, I was in great company with a really nice instructor. It was the most thrilling experience I’ve ever done so far, and it was absolutely the best birthday present that I’ve ever got.

The best birthday present I ever got was from my mother. I studied abroad in Italy for my junior year of college and she came to visit during my stay. During her visit, we went to Paris for my 21st birthday! We had both never been to Paris before and it was one of the best trips of my life. While we were there, we went to the Louis Vuitton store and she told me I could pick out a bag for my 21st birthday present. Not only was the bag I chose one of the best presents I ever got, the whole trip and spending time with my mom was really special.
