What are some ways to surprise your partner with a birthday celebration?

Cupid’s Advice:

Birthdays only come once a year, so it’s crucial that you make your significant other feel as special as possible on this day. Consider these simple ideas to celebrate:

1. Throw a party: Surprise or not, getting together your beau’s friends is definitely a great way to celebrate the person you love. A fun atmosphere with drinks and good company will be the perfect thing to make your honey happy to turn a year older and thankful you took the initiative to coordinate it.

2. Do something adventurous: Parties and dinner aren’t for everyone, show your babe you really care by taking them out to do something unique or daring. Go skydiving if you’re feeling a thrill or maybe spend the day at an amusement park.

3. Keep it just the two of you: Sometimes the most thoughtful way to commemorate your partner can be done with little effort. Send your loved one out for a part of the day so you can set up your house to resemble an elegant restaurant and make your honey’s favorite meal.
