When the man you love has a birthday coming up, you want to make his birthday memorable by doing something special and romantic for him. Express your love and commitment to him by planning a romantic evening, surprising him with a vacation or giving him a gift that comes from the heart.
Handwritten Letter or Poem
Writing a love letter or poem is a way to show him how much you love him with your own words and creativity. You don't have to be a professional writer to create a romantic gift with your words; anything you tell him will be appreciated and treasured. Have the letter or poem framed or roll it up and place it in a clear glass bottle for a "message in a bottle" gift.
Celebrate his birthday by planning a romantic getaway for the weekend. Schedule it ahead of time to be sure there is a nice room or suite available; a honeymoon suite would be even better, as they often come with wine, chocolate-covered strawberries or a heart-shaped tub included. Cancel his weekend plans, pack his bags and surprise him with a weekend spent alone with you.
Picnic For Two
Put together a picnic for two for a romantic luncheon on his birthday. Fill a picnic basket with a blanket, chocolate-covered strawberries, crackers and cheese, a bottle of wine or champagne and two glasses. Go to a quiet and peaceful spot at a park or lake; it might be the first place you had a picnic together or someplace new. Treat him to the snacks and champagne to toast his birthday.
Harbor Dinner Cruise
Going on a harbor dinner cruise is a romantic way to spend his birthday. Inquire about dinner cruises from your local harbor cruise line to schedule a cruise near his birthday. Dinner cruises often include a romantic, candlelit dinner with wine or champagne, music and dancing. After the cruise, take him on a walk down the beach under the stars.
Name A Star
Name a star after the man you love with the star registry. Choose from a variety of packages, which may include a parchment with the star name either framed or unframed, a star chart to locate his star or a personalized wallet card with the star name and coordinates. To name a star, you choose the name of the star and the star date, which can be between 12/30/2008 and 8/1/2011.
