Who doesn’t love a birthday? Well, when you get past the reminder of your own mortality and come to terms with the fact that time moves so quickly, that is. But birthdays aren’t the time to think about these things – they’re a time to celebrate, and for the Genshin Impact characters, it’s no different.

Genshin Impact birthdays are special, because not only are they an opportunity to celebrate some of your favourite fictional friends, but you also receive a sweet letter from them and their speciality dish if you log in on the day. Yep – despite it being their birthday, they send you a present on their special day, how sweet is that? So, with the help of this guide, we’ll make sure you always know when your top Genshin Impact character’s birthday is, so you’ll know to log in and grab those sweet freebies.

If you want to get more familiar with all the Genshin Impact characters and find out where they rank, be sure to check out our Genshin Impact tier list. We also have a list of all the latest Genshin Impact codes to keep those primos coming, and then there are our Genshin Impact next banner and Genshin Impact events guides, so you can keep on top of everything happening in Teyvat.

Genshin Impact birthdays

Every time a Genshin Impact birthday crops up, the character sends you a letter with a special dish and one or more additional gifts to celebrate. You don’t need to own the character to receive the birthday mail, or do anything in-game – you simply need to log in on the character’s birthday to receive your present.

Play for Free!

Note that a character’s birthday mail doesn’t adhere to the server’s normal daily reset timer, so you need to log in between midnight and 23:59 local time on the day of the character’s birthday to ensure you snag it. Currently, this is one of the only ways to receive most characters’ special dishes if you don’t own them, with rare exceptions such as Thoma’s ‘Warmth’, which he also gives you during his hangout event.

After opening Genshin Impact birthday mail, a copy of the letter is saved to your gift inbox, which you can access by clicking the envelope with a heart in the top-right corner of your mailbox. Each year you receive a slightly varying set of gifts from the characters. We’ve included what items they have sent out so far in the table below, so you can get an idea of the kind of treats you’re in for.
