For those particularly close to you, you want to make their birthday count. You want to go beyond the usual paltry attempts people usually make on birthdays. More than just a cake with candles for blowing out. You want to make them feel special. If there’s a man in your life that you particularly like, planning the best birthday could be what makes him realise just how lucky he is to have you.
A lot of women have trouble buying guys a present they’ll really like. There are a lot of colognes being bought, to the point where it’s boring and a bit of a disappointment, really. Instead, push the boat out a little with some unique and unusual gift ideas. If he likes his drinks, a set of really fine whisky tumblers could win him over big time, for example.
Take a road trip
Take more than just a day to make his birthday special. Make it exciting by going on a road trip together. This is particularly good for those relationships that are starting to get a bit more serious. Not only is it a commitment sharing that space with someone. You also tend to learn a lot about one another while seeing some great sights on the way.
Set up a party
The birthday party might not be the biggest surprise you can give a guy. But you can customise it a bit to make it more personalised for him. Getting his family or friends to help out is vital. Find the things that he loves and make them a central theme. If he likes his fine dining, for example, he might appreciate a birthday party around cheese and wine tasting.
The gift that keeps on giving
Besides the birthday present, there’s a much more personal gift you can give him to really make it a special time. DIY coupon books are gaining some popularity as a gift. All for good reason. It’s the little things that really make our day after all. So fill a book full of little chores or things you can do for him. They can be sweet or they can be funny.
Take a trip down memory lane
Another gift for the relationships that are starting to get more serious. Celebrate the times you’ve spent together by putting together a scrapbook of all your best bits. Go uncensored with it. Don’t leave out the photos where you’re both looking goofy. This can be the perfect accompaniment to cooking a lovely dinner or having a quiet drink together.
Go on a date
When guys think of dates, normally they think of dinner and a drink, which can honestly be a bit of a chore for them. Most guys simply don’t like being wined and dined as much as we do. That’s why you need to choose a date he’ll really enjoy. It could be a walk down the beach followed with a drink. It could be going to a sports game with him. Whatever it is, make him the focus.
