Whether your husband is due to celebrate a big birthday or not, it’s natural that you want to make it extra special. The chances are that whenever it’s your birthday, he goes above and beyond when it comes to gifts. So it’s only right that when it’s his special day, that you do everything that you can to make it nice for him.
The question is, what’s the best way to go about it? I know I’m not alone when it comes to struggling with buying for my partner – a lot of women struggle to buy for their husbands. It’s not just the buying that’s the problem, though, it’s also organising ways to celebrate. When it comes to birthdays, men can be hard work, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make their day special for them.
Want to know the best ways to make your man smile on his birthday? Then have a read of these tips, tricks and ideas that are perfect for making birthdays special.
Breakfast in bed or at his fave place
Breakfast in bed is the ultimate treat, but if you’re not a great cook it could be a recipe for disaster. If this is the case, it’s a good idea to take him to his fave place instead of cooking for him. If he’s working and doesn’t have time for breakfast in bed or breakfast at his fave place, make him a hot breakfast to go. You can’t go wrong with waffles and syrup or a delicious bacon and egg sandwich – both are delicious and quick and easy to make.
Dot birthday notes around the house
Surprise him throughout the day by dotting birthday notes around the house. If he has to go to work, place notes in his car, briefcase and anywhere else you can think of. Birthdays are about feeling special, so surprising him with cute little notes is perfect. You don’t have to write them all yourself, get the kids involved too.
Treat him to a lovely lunch
If he has the day off of work, take him out for a delicious lunch at his favourite restaurant. Or, if he prefers a more relaxed lunch, why not put together a picnic and find a nice spot? Add a sense of occasion to the picnic by surprising the birthday boy with a bottle of champagne and some other fancy snacks. If he has to work, instead of sending him with his usual packed lunch, have a delicious lunch treat delivered to his office.
Give him an experience instead of a gift
Gifts are great but men can be hard to buy for, as they always seem to have everything that they need. That’s why sometimes giving him an experience instead of a gift is a great idea. There are so many fantastic experience days to choose from, so there’s sure to be one that’s perfect for him. If he loves extreme sports, maybe a day of high-speed driving or white water rafting could be for him? If he’s not an extreme sports kind of guy but loves new experiences, maybe a pleasure flight could be ideal? There are plenty of places you can book these through, including the Pleasureflights Ltd website. Or, if he’d prefer to partake in an activity where he learns something, a BBQ cooking class or a beer brewing day could be perfect. For all the best deals, have a browse online.
Make dinner extra special
Last but not least, make dinner extra special. If you’re not going out for dinner, you can still make his evening a good one. Instead of serving any old meal, make his favourite dish. Or, how about cooking up something a little fancier than normal? If you’re not the best chef, don’t stress, you can always order takeaway.
Birthdays are meant to be special, so it’s important to take the time to ensure that your husbands is fun and memorable.
