If you’ve already tried all the ideas you could think of to entertain him for his birthdays, such as theme parties and gifts, you have no choice but to resort to new ways to get him excited.
Do you want your day to be memorable? Here we bring you 40 super original surprises so you know how to surprise your boyfriend or husband on his birthday.
1. Surprise notes
Do you intend to change the usual routine of his birthday? So, write her love notes.
Spread them out on your bed, use self-adhesive sheets and stick them on your bedroom mirror or on the front glass of your car.
In them, you will show him how much he means to you and how wonderful it is to have his presence in your life.
You can also write to him about the moments they have shared so far and in this way, you will get him to remember each anecdote with you.
Now, let’s make this surprise much more interesting! If you write the notes, it is simply because you are in love with him. But it would be even better if you start collecting them from your friends and family. That’s where the fun lies!
He needs to know that he is valuable to everyone and with this gift he could even shed tears of emotion.
2. Give him a good massage
If definitely indulging his whims or desires in the bedroom is inappropriate for you, you can also indulge him through a deliciously erotic massage.
You will never have this surprise! To do this, buy aromatic oils or make them yourself, decorate the room with flowers and candles to create a romantic atmosphere for him. Prepare to make him forget all the daily stress.
3. Show up at their door
If you usually visit him in the afternoons or are in a specific place after work, he will not imagine that on the morning of his birthday it is you who is waiting for him right at the door of his house.
Of course, you must arrive with breakfast, some gifts, and all your love. You will be happy to see your girlfriend before anyone else!
4. Hot card
Suppose you bought him a very special, practical and highly desired gift from him. Obviously, you will be fascinated to receive it!
But, also, include a card in which you have written a personal note with hot overtones.
With this, you will make him blush and the safest thing is that he will pick up the phone to see you immediately and thus be able to redeem his gift.
5. Plan a surprise party
This is a fairly conventional idea, but with it, you can gather your loved ones in the same place and get them to have a different day in the company of people who really appreciate them and from whom they will receive authentic birthday wishes.
6. Hide clues
If he is the type of man who likes to investigate before acting, he will enjoy investigating – through clues that you leave him in strategic places – the exact place where his birthday present is hidden.
Not only is it a very original way to get your gift to him, but you will have to chain very well the traces one after another to get your reward.
Of course, do not make the task so easy! Hide his present very well, you can even involve your best friends to make collecting the clues more interesting.
The gift must be equal to the effort invested to find it. No boxes of chocolates, you better give him a real surprise that will excite him!
7. A really special detail
All of us long for some material good that for some reason we like too much, but that every time we want to acquire it, some unforeseen event happens that makes us postpone its purchase.
My sister-in-law recently gave my brother a collectible toy crane that he always wanted as a child and that my parents weren’t able to give him because it had been discontinued.
It was easy for her to discover that he wanted it badly because she was counting on our help to let her know exactly what special gift my brother wanted.
In your case, you can ask him many months before his birthday so as not to arouse suspicion.
For example, start a conversation about those things that you liked in college or as a child and that you never obtained (material things, of course), and he will do the same by telling you what things he could not acquire or do.
Then you will have to organize your time and money to get what he wanted. The result will be worth the effort!
8. Let him be disappointed!
For this birthday gift, you will have to get his mood to go from heaven to Earth in a matter of hours.
Call him and tell him to suspend any activity he has scheduled for his birthday because you have a super party organized at your house and you will pick him up at a certain time.
But, on his birthday, call him again apologizing and telling him that everything was complicated, that you have a thousand commitments, your plans fell apart and you will not be able to be with him, that you will make up for it later.
For the rest of the day ignore him completely, let him think you are insensitive. A couple of hours before the party you never really failed, go find him and tell him it was all a joke.
At first, you will notice his annoyance, but then he will enjoy what you had prepared for him.
A friend was traveling the week of her boyfriend’s birthday and called him to promise that she would get a flight before his special day (she actually arrived in town two days before, but he did not know it), the day of his birthday waited for her at the airport but she never came.
Instead, she called him to say that she should take a couple more days to fulfill her obligations.
However, half an hour later, surprise! She was at home waiting for him with a serenade with mariachis, cake, and gifts.
9. The love album
Get an eye-catching notebook and some birthday labels. That is hearts, arrows, cakes, and other figures that you can use.
Then download the images you have of both of them on your computer and print the ones you like the most.
Cut them out and create an album with special messages and stories to remember for the future.
Write him what you feel when you are by his side and what are your wishes for this new year of his life.
It will be a unique and special detail for your boyfriend!
10. The surprise thread
This gift deserves time and a lot of stealth on your part so you don’t wake him up while organizing everything or when laying the thread.
It is a detail that works if you live together. Get a skein of wool in a nice color, then decorate a part of your house with his gifts, photographs, and balloons (this should be done at night when he is asleep).
Tie one end of the yarn to the door of the room where you organized her surprise and take the rest of the yarn to your bedroom.
And this is where you have two alternatives: the first is to tie the end on the doorknob of your room so that when he gets up he follows the path of the thread. The other is that if your boyfriend is a heavy sleeper, tie it directly on his wrist.
When he gets up from sleep he won’t be able to believe what you did to him.
11. Cook for him
It is perhaps one of the most appreciated birthday gifts for a man. Dare to cook him some of his favorite dishes!
I still do not know a boy who dislikes eating and on the web, you will find hundreds of very simple and delicious recipes to cook with few ingredients, and in the shortest possible time.
12. Party set with your favorite movie
Are you a fan of a movie or video game saga? Do not miss the opportunity to decorate your party using scenes or elements that recreate your favorite movie.
Ask the party guests to dress up as the main characters. You will die laughing when you see them all playing your favorite actors!
13. Get rid of what he hates about you
No matter how in love they are, there will always be things that you cannot bear about your partner, such as their disorder or the way they forget dates that are special to you.
In the same way, he will have indicated to you on some occasions that he does not like that you are so extreme about the order or that you cook with too many seasonings.
You leave the tank of the car without gas or perhaps what he detests the most about you is that you collect small porcelain figurines that he has come across on a few occasions.
On his birthday, turn your attitude around or get rid of what he doesn’t want to see in you.
At the very least, keep the change for the entire week of his birthday.
14. Serenade at dinner
If you can’t sing and don’t want to feel like you’re making a fool of yourself in a restaurant, make dinner for him and choose a selection of songs that he likes best, so they listen to them while they eat.
You can also try singing some verses of his favorite song to him when you are alone. It will help you to lean on a karaoke track so you don’t forget the lyrics of the song. He will appreciate your effort!
15. Wear your favorite team’s jersey
Not all girls share their lovers’ passion for sports.
Instead of gifting him one more shirt or some other accessory from his team, agree to share his enthusiasm at least on his birthday. How to do it? Wearing a t-shirt in support of your favorite team.
16. Uncensored photographs
Make no mistake: we are not suggesting you take some unseemly selfies or anything like that.
Collect with his family the funniest images of him since he was a child, those that no one would show! Print them out and organize them in a very special collage that he can look at whenever he wants, to remember funny moments in his life.
17. List the reasons why you wish him a happy birthday
Write a reason for each year that it turns; That is, if he is celebrating his twentieth birthday, then write twenty nice wishes for him.
It would even be very interesting if you compose a speech with these special reasons and announce them in front of the people who accompany them in their entertainment.
18. Declare your feelings
Who came out to whom when they started dating? It must have been him.
But this time put a twist on the relationship as he is the birthday boy!
Get on your knees and declare all your feelings to him. It is not only something too unusual, but very romantic.
19. Birthday poster
This is a detail that you will never be able to forget in your life! Put up in public places – where you know your boyfriend must travel to get to work – several posters alluding to his birthday.
At first, he will think it is a coincidence, but at the end of the day, he will understand that it is part of your gift to him.
How do you get this? Wait for him with the last poster when he leaves his work or at home.
If you want to invest a little more money, you can rent a public banner for a week, it really is one of the most impressive birthday gifts you will receive in your life.
Just make sure that the message is not too personal, remember that many more people will read it and the idea is not that he will be embarrassed.
20. Make a surprise video
This is truly extraordinary! It is a simple and really good alternative as a surprise.
What you should do is call all of your boyfriend’s friends, as well as his relatives, relatives, and all the people he socializes with on a daily basis.
You have to ask everyone to create a very short video of their birthday wishes.
The purpose of this is to try to accumulate as many messages as possible.
Then, put them all together in the same film, taking care of the editing details.
There are many fairly easy-to-use video editing software that will allow you to do the job properly, without hiring another person.
Once you are done, that’s when the real fun begins, because you must have a screen on which you will project the video in the middle of your celebration, or you can also make this gift a little more intimate by sending it directly to email.
21. Love letter
The missives are a classic and will always make you look good. But to make your content interesting and moving, don’t write it at the last minute!
Go to a quiet place and let your emotions flow, read it several times until you feel that it contains everything you want to say to him.
You can also use the computer for this, so it will be easy for you to correct grammar mistakes and you will only print the draft that you liked the most.
22. Carving in a tree trunk
It is a very romantic gesture and they can go to the park where the tree on which you carved their name is located whenever they want.
I have heard of couples who return a long time later to see if their tree is still standing and if the bark on which the message was written (initials of their names or date on which they began to leave) is still visible.
23. Personalized pillow
There are never too many pillows and, if you buy a small one with a cover printed with pictures or funny messages, she will sleep more comfortably.
If this is small (cushion type), it will be very useful when he goes on a trip, so he will always take you with him to bed!
24. Write him a poem
The poems are comparable to love letters, with the difference that they have a rhyme between each of their verses.
They are not easy to make, you may have to go to a literature teacher to finish polishing your ideas, but your boyfriend will understand that your love is different and that you wanted to give him a memorable birthday gift.
25. Take him to a spa
Women love to be pampered and in a spa, we receive that extra attention that we deserve.
Take him on a spa day where he can choose a complete massage, facial mask, and sauna package. It will be light as a feather!
26. Personalized mug
Your coffee will be much more delicious if you personalize your cup. There are those on the market that have mandalas with which you can entertain yourself by drawing on them, to later wash it and be able to repaint them on their surface.
You can also ask them to print a photograph of both of them or buy the ones that change colors with the heat or cold of the drink that you place inside.
When you give it to her, get an eye-catching gift box or wrapping paper and include some chocolates, little tea bags, or an instant coffee mix so she can brand new as soon as she opens it.
27. Bouquet of gifts
This can be classified as a mixed gift since you will buy several small details and put them together in a colorful arrangement.
28. Shaving kit
Never neglect your personal appearance! Travel kits for shaving turn out to be very practical.
These consist of a razor, brush, mirror, and foam. Include an aftershave lotion right there and take care of being the one to help him release this set; that is, shave it yourself and give it a facial massage.
29. Foot massage
Men do not have time to take care of the appearance of their feet, they just trim their nails.
It would be fabulous if you pamper him on his birthday with a pedicure and finish with a massage on the soles of his feet.
This is something he will never dare ask you, but will always want you to do for him.
With this gift, you will have many options in the market for you to choose the scent that really suits your personality.
Perhaps the main detail to take into account is that some people by sweating make the lotions and perfumes they apply change their original aroma.
If your boyfriend has this peculiarity, do not risk giving him any perfume, no matter how delicious the fragrance is to the smell. It is preferable that you use the brand you already use and buy a new replacement bottle of your favorite perfume.
Or you can buy instead of perfume, gel, and bath salts to make your daily grooming experience more enjoyable.
Is he an elegant boy? Does he attend parties or meetings frequently? A pair of cufflinks that give life to the cuffs of your shirts do not hurt.
You will get them in glossy and matte tones, inlaid with semi-precious stones such as onyx, which give a touch of elegance to this accessory for men.
32. A watch
Keep him from being late for his appointments and give him a watch on this birthday; These are stylish, eye-catching, and very useful accessories.
A watch does not go out of style and you will see them with a plastic, fabric, metallic, or leather pulse, so you will know exactly which one is the one that fits the personality of your man.
If you want to give it a very special touch, have a small inscription engraved on the back of the watch. You will like this gift!
33. Balloon bouquet
Balloons are special. They can be easily hidden behind a door and, although it may not seem like it, they also support enough weight to tie a gift and make it float to your boyfriend.
You can also sprinkle them with little love notes inside their room or make a bouquet with giant metallic balloons with motifs. They are beautiful and impressive!
34. Awesome gift
This present is not available to many women, because it requires a sufficient amount of money to execute.
We all want something almost unattainable or dreamlike, that which we only dream of because it is totally inaccessible to us.
In the case of women, it is usually marrying a millionaire or meeting a famous actor for whom you sigh.
But with boys, it is usually about material things, for example driving a race car.
Find out what that dream is that makes him sigh and if, for example, it is about expensive vehicles or technology, it will help you to take it to a late-model car show.
There it is allowed to take pictures and even get on any of these vehicles.
While it is true that you will not be able to drive them, at least you will satisfy your curiosity and give yourself the pleasure of fulfilling part of your dream.
A friend fervently wanted to be an astronomer, but his occupations did not allow him to pursue this profession. For his birthday, his girlfriend prepared a whirlwind trip to another city, which made him very excited because he believed that the trip itself was his gift.
But not! It turns out that in that city she had coordinated a visit to the planetarium and her love had access to observe the cosmos with a professional telescope, in the company of knowledgeable people, who gave her a master class and answered the questions that he had.
I can assure you that your boy will be so happy after this type of gift, that any other present he receives will be overshadowed.
35. The place where you first met
It is very romantic to be able to remember together the place where you met, much more if you have been dating for a long time. Then, they will have a wealth of beautiful memories about walks, friends, and various situations.
But is your heartthrob still perpetuating in his mind the exact place where his relationship with you began? Surely yes, because you mean a lot in his life.
Therefore, for this gift, you can blindfold them and take them right to the place where they were presented or where they were first seen.
Once you remove the blindfold, he will love taking in the big picture and reconnecting with his memories.
