A Get-Together

Your husband would love to have a nice and cozy get-together with his childhood /school friends on his birthday. Connecting with the older buddies on one’s birthday can leave a lasting impression and it’ll surely be a wonderful memory for your husband. However, you must contact his friends way before his birthday, to make sure that everyone is free around that time. Do not invite all of them, instead, only send an invitation to the friends who connect with your husband and they share a good bond. Otherwise, it’ll be an awkward mess that no one wants to deal with! 

3. A Long Road Trip

A Long Road Trip

A long road trip is the most classical romantic getaway that’ll forever remain a nice birthday surprise idea. For starters, you can blindfold your husband and drive yourself, for him to have curiosity all along the way. Try not to leave any hints. To make the trip more memorable, you can even invite some of your close family members or decorate the destination, which can be any place that your husband wanted to visit for a long time. Trips like these can be really fun and exciting if executed right! 

4. Give His Car a Makeover

Give His Car a Makeover

In case your better half is obsessed with keeping his car clean and maintained, you can give his car a nice makeover, for a unique birthday surprise. For this, you’ll have to plan thoroughly with the available budget and if you got some extra cash, try customizing the car according to your choice. You can start with changing the color of the car, and then move to the interiors. A more affordable idea would be to decorate the car with confetti, balloons, and birthday banners. 

5. Sporting Together 

Sporting Together 

If your husband is a great sports enthusiast and supports a particular team, it’s your cue to get a hold of the next match of that team. Without leaving any hints, you can take him to his favorite sports event. To make this surprise even more fun, you can ask the billboard operator to display a special ‘birthday’ message during the interval. 

 Making this idea a more intimate one, you can also play his favorite sport with him. For example, if he’s into golf or netball, you can book the ground for some time, and play with him. When you, not an avid fan of sports, will make these efforts just for your husband, he’ll remember this event for the rest of his life! 

6. A Surprise Video

A Surprise Video

A surprise birthday video might be a cliche idea, but you can play with it in so many exciting ways. For example, you can collect all the funny pictures/clips of your husband from work and when he’s with friends, and make a super fun video out of it. Adding a funny song or meme audio will make this idea more fun and memorable for him and the guests too! 

However, if you wish to make it a sentimental one, try using the pictures/clips of your vulnerable moments, like when your baby was born, or when you held hands for the first time. These moments will always be printed in his mind, thus leaving him overwhelmed for a long time! 

7. Radio Broadcasting

8. King for a Day

King for a Day

Treat your husband like a king on his birthday. Giving your man a much-needed break from his work duties, you can start by giving him breakfast in bed, presenting a notepad in front of him, and asking him to list down all of his wishes or a much easier bucket list. You can try to fulfill those wishes and make sure that the list is check-marked at the end of the day. Treating him like a king can also include, going to watch his favorite movie, eating his favorite dishes, putting on his favorite dress of yours, and letting him decide on every little thing, thus making him feel special and ecstatic. 

9. Get a Tattoo

Get a Tattoo

Although you are supposed to be adults after getting married, we suggest that this time, you go all the way out on your husband’s birthday.
