Your husband has been showering you with lovely gifts every now and then. Now it’s your turn to do something nice, and what better occasion than his forthcoming birthday to show that you love and care! Traditional gifts and keepsakes like wallets, personalized pens, clothes and electronics are always a winner but they are cliché and in most cases your man would already have it. Don your creative hat and think different this time, because sometimes it’s not the money but the thought that counts!
Here are six great ideas that can be excellent birthday gifts for him. You never know, your small effort might just give you the greatest return. Another jewelry or holiday or he might be the most loving and doting husband for the rest of the year!
1 PLAN A WEEKEND GETAWAY
If your man has been talking about going somewhere nearby, for camping or horse riding in the mountain or visit a beach resort, this is the perfect chance to take him there. Choose a weekend prior to his birthday (if his birthday falls on a weekday) and plan a surprise getaway. Announce to him on Friday morning just before he leaves for work. He’ll not only thank you heaps and hug you, but this little surprise will also keep him singing and dancing all day long!
2 COOK ALL OF HIS FAVORITE THINGS
The way to a man’s heart is through his tummy…you know it by now. Plan a surprise dinner and cook all his favorite meals and desserts. Create a romantic ambience…dim the lights, light candles and spread some flowers around. What better way for him to unwind than by drinking his favorite wine and eating his favorite food, and all that at the comfort of his house!
3 BIRTHDAY PARTY AT HOME
Your man might like to have a quiet evening, especially after a long day at work, but he wouldn’t mind having a little noise around him on his birthday. Give him a surprise birthday party at home and call up all his buddies. This might take some effort, keeping it quiet and running around, but when he will open the door later in the day, that look on his face will be worth a million dollars! Do remember to take a picture to show him afterwards.
4 MASSAGE AND SPA RETREAT
Who doesn’t like spas and massages, and men, they like it more than us! Moreover, when was the last time you got pampered with one? Seize the opportunity and make it a double treat in your favorite salon. Men are generally bad in remembering dates and outings, but this day will be a day that’ll stay in his memory for a long time.
5 TICKETS TO AN EVENT
Make his wish come true by gifting him a ticket to an event – a rock concert or a game of baseball or somewhere he’s been really longing to go. Be a little more generous and hand over two tickets – one for him and the other for his buddy. After this act, the two of them won’t stop thanking you enough! While he is out, you can have a relaxing soak in the tub with a glass of wine.
6 ROMANCE AND FOOD IN OPULENCE
Rekindle old memories by talking about old times over a romantic dinner. Book a table for two in his favorite restaurant or in the best dining in town, and put on your new dress and glam up. When he is home in the evening and asks you ‘where shall we go tonight’, all you have to say is ‘follow me.’ And he’ll surely love that!
Hey this is great advice.. thanks!!
