Letters of Love: On that same birthday, I also had all of his friends and loved ones write a letter to him expressing love or favorite memories they have had with him.
Some were funny, some were serious, and some were in poetry or “list” form. You can get the printable for it here: Happy Birthday to My Husband Letter Book.
Looking for some unique birthday ideas for husband? It’s free money on things you already buy and can add up really fast (I installed the bookmark tool so that a little reminder pops up anytime I am eligible for cash back on any website I am on).
Husband birthday ideas are one of the things I really enjoy coming up with! *TIP: If you ever make a purchase for your husband birthday ideas, make sure you activate your cash back through Ebates!
He told her he was taking her out to dinner for her birthday, and her friends were waiting at the restaurant with the tickets to the concert. Surprise Dinner: Similar to the idea above, take your loved one to dinner and have everyone they know and love waiting at the restaurant.
You can keep it simple and just enjoy dinner together, or you can have each person bring a gift or small memento that represents a memory they have had with that person. I wrapped things like his favorite candybar, or a ticket to something fun, or a coupon for a clean house (which isn’t a big deal for most men, but it is for my husband).
Last year I wrapped twelve gifts for my huband to open every hour from the time he was born. My husband’s birthday lands on a Sunday this year, and since we don’t spend money or go out shopping on Sundays, we will be celebrating “Birthday Weekend.” His favorite soccer team just happens to be playing that weekend 🙂 Service Birthday: I saw this one on Pinterest.
I had everyone send me a video message on their smartphone and had it compiled into a video. If you find yourself in a similar situation, hunting for an idea for an upcoming anniversary, birthday, or Christmas…are some fun ways we’ve celebrated in the past: Half Birthdays.
Celebrate in Numbers: This could get tricky if your spouse was born on the 30th, but if they were born earlier in the month you have it made! Gifts that Last ALL YEAR: This is a fun one for Christmas.
For example, if they were born on the 5th, you could celebrate all day long with the number 5. Rather than buy ITEMS for each other, only give gifts of things you can enjoy together: movie tickets, a trip somewhere, a sporting event, a fun date night at home kit, tickets to a play,amusement park pass, etc.
Five activities, 5-course meals, 5 reasons you love him/her, 5 ways of celebrating, 5 gifts, etc. This way you are spending your money on your relationship rather than on things, and you will enjoy the gift ALL YEAR long as you complete each activity/event together.
Gifts on the Hour: I’ve seen this one floating around Pinterest. Birthday Week: Does your spouse’s birthday land on an awkward day? Make the celebration last all week by doing something small to celebrate each day (breakfast one day, gift another, movie on another, etc.) Make it Birthday Week.
Some were printables or little booklets that I bought, but everything has it’s own little personal touch and have made wonderful husband birthday gifts.
