Let’s talk birthdays, shall we? Now that the holidays are behind us, our family gets a slight reprieve on celebrations until March when we celebrate our youngest son and husband’s birthday. Like me, if your significant other’s birthday is on the way, the chances are that you want to make it as special for them as possible. The only problem is that you may not know how to go about it. The most important thing is not to panic, regardless of how close their birthday is. Making your partner’s birthday fun and memorable is actually, much easier than you would think. All it takes is a little organization, and you can plan the most fantastic day.
How to Make Your Significant Other’s Birthday Extra Special
To give you a helping hand getting your significant other’s birthday spot on, I thought I would share some ideas with you. So for a little birthday planning inspiration, keep reading.
Spoil him with breakfast in bed
Start the day by treating him to a delicious breakfast in bed. Whatever he likes, be it pancakes, bacon sandwiches or waffles and ice cream, make it for him. (It’s his birthday, after all, he deserves to be pampered.)
If you’re not an amazing cook, don’t panic. Neither am I. You can order breakfast in – yes this is a thing, or you could take him out for brunch at his favorite eatery. As long as he has his fave breakfast treat, he’ll have the best start to his birthday.
Plan a day out
Want to make his birthday as special as possible? Then plan a day out to somewhere that you know he would love to go. Is there a place that he always gets excited to visit or is there somewhere that he’s been nagging you to go for a while? Well, his birthday is the perfect time to plan a visit.
Whether he loves visiting the beach, going to theme parks of exploring new cities, you can plan the perfect day out for him. Ask yourself whether it should just be you and him, or whether he’d have more fun if his family or buddies tagged along. (Group days out are often a lot of fun, so this could be worth considering.)
Pick the perfect gift
The most important and hardest part of preparing for your partner’s birthday is, of course, choosing the perfect gift. While it can often be tricky to find the ideal present, there’s no need to stress about it.
Start off by thinking about their likes and dislikes, and use them to come up with the ideal gift idea. For instance, if they love gadgets, a drone could make the perfect gift. Or, if they are passionate about their appearance, a set of male grooming products could be ideal. If all else fails, you can’t go wrong with wallets and watches, as they always make fantastic gifts.
Go for dinner and drinks
Once you’ve got his present sorted, the next step is to think about how you’ll spend the evening. Ask yourself what he’d enjoy spending the night doing? How about going out for a fancy meal?
The perfect way to end the day is with dinner and drinks at his favorite restaurant. Again, this could be just the two of you or a large group of his friends and family. Sometimes, dinner and drinks can be a lot more fun when there’re more people there, so inviting his buddies along could be a fantastic idea.
So there you have it, all my top tips for making your partner’s birthday extra special.
