Make a Memory Jar for Him
A memory jar is a special jar that you fill with memories that you and your partner have shared. This can be anything from your first date to the last fight. The idea of a memory jar is that you create a physical representation of all the most important memories in your relationship. It’s something he will be able to treasure for years to come.
To start, pick out a large glass jar (ideally one that has some sentimental value).Then grab some strips of paper and write down all those little moments in time when you felt truly happy together: the first time he told you he loved you; the day he proposed; etcetera…
Make his Favorite Dish for a Romantic Birthday Dinner
One of the easiest ways to show that you love your man and want to celebrate his birthday is by making him a delicious dinner. You know his favorite food, and you know what will make him happy.
Organize a Little Surprise Birthday Party with Just Family and Close Friends
Organize a surprise birthday party with just family and close friends.
There are so many reasons why this is not just a great way to show your partner how much you love him, but also a wonderful opportunity for everyone to spend time together. First of all, he’ll be surprised by the fact that you have organized something special for him. And secondly, he will feel loved and appreciated by his friends and family members!
You can plan it around his favorite activities or hobbies. If he likes playing video games maybe organize an evening where they play together. Or if football is his thing, make a reservation at a restaurant where there are TVs broadcasting football matches. If he likes painting maybe get some canvases and paints ready. You get the idea.
Plan a Movie Date at Home
For this plan, you’ll need to get some of his favorite snacks and favorite flicks. Just cuddle, snuggle, and enjoy each other’s company!
Organize a Picnic in your Backyard or in the Park Nearby
Nothing says ‘romance’ like eating together in a beautiful place! Plan the menu beforehand and find a nice soft picnic blanket. Get a portable basket and take some food from home: sandwiches, fruit slices, chips and dips, etc. Also take drinks (water or juice).
Make a Couples Birthday Slideshow
Slideshows are a great way to capture memories and bring them to life. You can make one yourself or use an online service such as Animoto, which is a website that creates personalized videos out of your photos and music. If you want to do it yourself, you can use Movie Maker for Windows or iMovie for Macs (or other programs). Using your photos from the past year, add some video clips and music into the slideshow. If you’re feeling extra creative, add captions or transitions!
Once it’s finished, put it on flash drive so that he can share or watch it again later!
Give his Car a Little Decoration
You can do this by hanging streamers, banners, balloons, and a “Happy Birthday” sign on the car.
Clean up for Him
Who doesn’t appreciate some help with their chore load? A few weeks before his birthday, ask him if he has any chores around the house that need doing. Before the big day, secretly complete the whole list.
If you want to be extra cute, send him a little checklist of all the things you got done, and invite him to totally relax for the rest of the day!
Stretch and Snuggle
A great way for couples to connect is to relax and snuggle together. You can watch a movie, listen to music, or just spend some distraction-free quality time together.
Having a romantic backdrop is a major plus. Sit in front of the fireplace. Light candles around the house highlighting your favorite memories. All in all, just make sure that the lights are off and there are no distractions!
If you know that he’s been eyeing something in a store, or on a website, this is the perfect opportunity to buy it for him. There is nothing better than landing the perfect gift on your birthday!
