How can I surprise my guy on his birthday?

Does your guy love to be surprised? We’ve gathered four surprise birthday ideas for him to help you make his day extra memorable!

Scavenger Hunt

Are adventures his sort of thing? Plan a fun scavenger hunt for your guy and leave clues and small gifts at locations around town!  Lead up to his main gift at the end. 

Themed Party

The famous surprise party is always popular. Invite his friends to a secret location and bring them along on the pretext of a quiet evening alone. You can even pretend to be slightly uncomfortable, so that he loses hope of any big festivities: in the end, he’ll be doubly surprised. Don’t forget to set the scene according to the chosen theme (his favorite sports team, the video game he’s addicted to, the era that fascinates him, etc.) and even ask guests to match their outfits to the occasion.

Breakfast in Bed

Does your man usually wake up hungry? Wake him from his sleep with the scent of a freshly prepared breakfast, which you’ll bring to him in bed (if not, there’s nothing to stop you from ordering or picking up pastries at the local bakery). It’s a great way to wake up!

Personalized Gift

Jewelry with a special engraving suddenly becomes very personal. On a different note, you can also make him laugh with, for example, a blanket with a photo of you, face amused, opening your arms (he’ll surely want to take refuge in it when you’re away). Photo books also make irresistible personalized birthday gifts.

Psitt! Don’t forget to accompany your gift with a special note: here are some homemade birthday card ideas.
