Yes. You're built-in calendar! Set a recurring annual event for each birthday, with a reminder for a few days in advance, done.

I had a look around and couldn't find an alternative to Date Reminder. I know $20 is a lot just to have a list of dates, but I use it and find it a good way of remembering / checking up on birthdays anniversaries etc.

The problem with putting them in the calendar is that you can't easily find out when someone's birthday is or check if there's anything that you need to think about in the next month. I know it's $20 but it's worth it for me!

Well, I had to reload my firmware yesterday and lost every reminder I installed in this app. They really need to provide an export / import option in this app. Until they do, I will not be renewing any licenses. I wish I had done my research before I spent hours entering my data in there...

Put them in the calendar. Add a category called "Birthdays" and filter the calendar for that category.

$20 in your pocket!

Unfotunately, my Zen Today theme doesn't want to show me reoccuring dates, such as birthdays and anniversaries....the things I forget!
