Awesome Ideas to Celebrate Your Boyfriend's Birthday

Plan a Special Dinner Date

A special celebration for your boyfriend's birthday calls for some alone time for the two of you! Sure, the two of you may be having frequent dates but your bae's birthday is a special day and deserves some romance! You may choose to leave out the romantic candles and soft music if you have had such setups before, but an old-fashioned dinner date is ageless! Do take some time out to plan a romantic date with your boyfriend; you may choose to go out on the birthday eve and bring in the birthday together as the clock strikes twelve, or you may plan it for any other time of the birthday week. Remember to dress up for the occasion and ask him to do so, too, and take him to his favourite place. P.S. even if you don't relish Chinese cuisine, bear with him for just one day!

Lead Him to The Gift

Revive childhood memories by organizing a mini treasure hunt or a trail that leads your boyfriend to the gift. You do not have to organize a fancy treasure hunt or involve everybody you know. Take a paper and pen and start jotting a series of clues, which will sequentially guide him to the end of the hunt. Now, the finale can either be a special birthday gift that you have picked for him or, simply, a romantic date with you. You can add a few photographs of the two of you to the clues to relive old memories. Build up the suspense and enjoy watching (or documenting?) his expressions all along!

Focus on What He Likes

During the gift selection process, you may go gaga over a dozen different gift ideas, but it is technically your boyfriend's birthday. It would be only right to celebrate it in a manner he would enjoy and appreciate. Think about his likes, dislikes, preferences, and whims--and, see if there is a way you can tie them together. For instance, if he is a movie buff and loves football, you can plan to take him to a movie in the evening followed by dinner at a cafe that screens football matches. Or, even gift him some football merchandise. Keep it simple and do only the things that he loves to do.

And, Here's How You Can Make it a Birthday to Remember

Doorstep Surprise

Do you typically bring in your boyfriend's birthday gift by surprising him at his house, perhaps with a bunch of other friends tagging along? If not, strongly consider this idea this year--it is tried and tested and makes it even more memorable! If you have done this every other year, surprise him by not landing at his doorstep at midnight but in the morning instead! A great surprise is one that happens with zero expectations. Show up early morning with a bunch of flowers and a cake (or gifts), and you can kick-start the celebrations for the day with a fulfilling brunch together.

A Box Full of Wishes

A great way to celebrate your boyfriend's special birthday is to gift him a box of happiness! A few weeks before the big day, discreetly inform your mutual friends, your boyfriend's family (and even yours, if possible), and others who matter to him. Encourage them to write a note for the birthday boy and collate them into a box. Fill the box with some other small treats and confetti and gift wrap it. Present it to him on his birthday. Can you imagine the happy emotions that will surface as your boyfriend reads each little note from the people who matter the most to him? This is by far one of the most thoughtful gifts for your boyfriend as it channelizes an abundance of love and warm wishes!
