make a great day of it

Like the satisfaction of belonging to a team or the feeling from being part of a close community, you can get a warm glow from the associations to your day.

Everybody is well connected, no matter what day of the year – you only have to explore our daily gift halls of fame to see that.

Take 20 February. Happily, for those connected, it stands out for drink connections. The first recorded wine auction took place on this day in 1673; Mount Gay Estate in Barbados began distilling its famous rum on this day in 1703 and a Guinness record for the most varieties of gin commercially available – 623 – was created at The Fence Gate in Burnley on this day in 2015.

Take 23 March. It’s a day for sporting greats. Olympic gold medal winners Sir Mo Farah, Sir Chris Hoy, Sir Steve Redgrave and Jason Kenny all share the birthday. The Guardian goes so far as to call it a birthday of rare potential.

Take 26 July. Its name written in lights – shared by Oscar winning actors and actresses including Dame Helen Mirren, Jason Statham and Sandra Bullock, all celebrating their birthdays.

All 365 days of the year have their special characters and characteristics. As well as providing gift ideas to match each day's greatness, we make available a lasting record of your special someone's role in it.

Personalise and download our great day' tribute enrolling them into the hall of fame alongside their day's greats. It's a fitting memento in itself for a birthday, anniversary or any special occasion.

With the gift ideas as well, it says more than ‘Have a Great Day’. It says 'You're part of the Great Day'.
