I look forward to my birthday each year. Despite the fact that each year I get another year older, I still enjoy the time with my family enjoying some cake and opening a few presents.

My birthday is still a month off, but if you're celebrating a birthday soon you might want to take advantage of an interesting website I recently stumbled across called RearFront.com, and they found 40 Epic Things You Can Do For Free On Your Birthday. This is a list of businesses you can visit on your birthday that offer a free item for the birthday boy or girl. Most of these free gifts are food-related, like ice cream at Ben & Jerry's, Denny's Grand Slam, a gourmet burger from Red Robin, a pastry from Panera Bread, a pancake stack from IHOP and more. Some of the more tangible free items include a movie night from Redbox, a toy from Toys 'R' Us, a mini beauty product from Sephora, and a brow consultation from Benefit.

Local businesses that made the list include

No. 21: Buffalo Wild Wings in Owatonna
No. 25: A & W in Faribault
No. 39: Caribou Coffee in Northfield, Faribault, Owatonna and Lakeville.

Make sure you call ahead and confirm the free birthday gift they have, because some of those items may vary by location.
