Aren’t you tired of resorting to the same party-gift-dinner routine when planning a birthday for your boyfriend or husband? Get out of the circle, as it’s no longer a surprise for the person who is celebrating his big day these days. Instead, think of innovative ideas which you can enjoy planning, and are guaranteed to make that special someone feel, well, special! We bring to you 10 out-of-the-box ideas you can try out from morning to night, which will truly make his birthday a memorable one.
A photo collage
‘Just me and you’ birthdays are boring after a while, so involve his family and friends, and earn brownie points too! Plan well, and assign an alphabet from H-A-P-P-Y B-I-R-T-H-D-A-Y to his loved ones (including yourself). You can either write down the alphabets or get it printed, and ask each one of them to pose with it and send you the photo. Once all the pictures come in, make a collage, present it to him and see the glee on his face. Best part? Distance is no bar and you can get all his friends and family involved, even if they are overseas.
Get his family and friends to send you birthday messages for him. Print them on coloured papers, put them in a jar and present them to him. If you want to add a personal touch, ask them to write it in their own handwriting, click a picture of it and send it to you, which you can then print. Alternatively, you can make a collage of the pictures and present it as either a soft or hard copy. This is sure to get you a big hug and a kiss!
Chalk it out
Buy some coloured chalks and write happy birthday in big, bold letters on the floor or wall of the bedroom. Let him wake up and see it first thing in the morning. There’s no doubt he will feel like the king of the world.
A king’s heart
Get a crown for him, coronate him and declare him as the king of that day. Now ask him to jot down his wishes for the day and make him feel supreme.
A treasure hunt
If you are the lovey-dovey couple, put sticky love notes in places he is most likely to find them. Think the loo, lunchbox, in the car, pockets of his trousers, breakfast tray and in his cupboard, and make him feel loved all day. After all, what are birthdays for!
Your own film
Collate all your pictures and make a touching slideshow presentation with all his favourite songs running in the background. Warning: This might bring some tears to his eyes.
Quick fix diy gifts
Short of time but still want to make a handmade creative for him? Make an origami fortune teller and fill it with sweet nothings for him on all the eight flaps. In case you don’t know how to make one, there are many tutorials available online. Easy to make, this will get ready in less than 15 minutes.
Blow his mind away
Blow a few heart-shaped balloons and hang them in the room, just so he is blown off when he comes home from work. You can also buy some helium balloons and put love notes on the loose ends of the strings for him to read.
Bake it right
Make a cake for him. Nothing spells special like hand-baked items. If you’re unsure about your baking skills, there are ready-to-make sponge cakes available in the market these days. Douse it in chocolate or strawberry sauce and you are ready to go. Don’t fret if you don’t know how to bake. After all, it’s the gesture that matters, right?
Be the surprise
If you think it’s appropriate, drop into his office unannounced with a bouquet for him and chocolates for all his colleagues. Make sure to dress well, do your hair and smell nice. It will surely floor him.
Lastly, go for a quiet, old-fashioned candle-lit dinner so that the both of you can reminisce about the events of the day.
