Birthday Ideas To Surprise Your Wife

Here are a few ideas to surprise your wife, especially on her birthday, that will make her smile and love you all the more:

1. Gift her a memory wall:

Depending on where you stay and how much time you have at hand, you can gift your wife a memory down the lane. The simplest way to do this is to collect photographs of special moments from her life, including her childhood images, images of when you two got married, her photographs with her parents and siblings, her graduation day images, pictures of her with babies if she is a mother and so on. Put all these on a wall either with individual frames, together, or in any other creative manner that you can think of. You could also get rid of the frames, put everything on a string and put the string up on the wall.

2. Pamper spa session gift:

Everyone loves a spa. You could gift her a nice spa session closer to home, and prep for a small bash when she is back. If you think that she would be working on her birthday, gift her a spa session close to the office. Two things to remember here would be to make sure that she has enough free time and that the spa is not far away from work, so no time is lost in commuting. If she is taking the day off, then nothing is better than opting for a couple of spa sessions at home! It would be fun and relaxing for both of you.

3. Gift her a makeover:

Another thing that your wife will surely love other than the session at the spa is a fun makeover. There are various agencies and even individuals who work as stylists and help people get makeovers. You can get in touch with a professional and look up individual styling projects. Depending on your wife’s preferences, you can give the stylist a brief about the clothes, accessories, and makeup. Alternatively, you can ask the stylist to do a complete change of style and give your wife an entirely different look than what she regularly sports.

4. A funky haircut:

If your wife is of the adventurous kinds and loves to experiment, then this surprise is tailor-made for her. Book your wife an appointment with a professional hairdresser so that you are sure of the end result. You can also book an appointment at the salon that she loves going to for her haircut, but we suggest booking her a new and renowned place would make things interesting. You could surprise her by blindfolding her to the place. You could also add more services than just haircuts.

5. Special birthday jewelry:

Almost all women love jewelry, but the one that you gift her for her birthday has to be truly different and special. Make sure you know what type of jewelry your wife loves the most, such as a necklace, earring, finger ring, bracelet, etc. Once you are sure about it, you can decide on a few designs or styles that you think she would like. To make it extra special, you can perhaps add her birthstone to the jewel. Also, you could engrave a small message on the piece of jewelry, so that she will always cherish it forever.

6. Bake a birthday cake:

Cake happens to be an essential part of a birthday, so why not bake her a cake? Of course, you will have to plan way in advance if you want to be perfect in your baking by the time it is her birthday. Make sure she does not know that you have enrolled in a baking class, to make that surprise that much bigger and special. Also, do a few trial tests to see how well you can bake and what mistakes you make, if any, and how you could improve or rectify them. If baking a cake seems too much for you, you can also try and make her a muffin or bake a batch of cookies. All of this will be extremely special to her, and she will really appreciate the effort you took to surprise her.

7. Fun day out with friends:

It is possible that on the day of your wife’s birthday, you may have some important work to attend to, making it impossible to spend time with her. So, why not gift her a special fun day out with her friends? Depending on what your wife likes, such as movies, theater, a concert, a comedy show et al., you could buy her a bunch of tickets so that she could attend it with her special friends. If you want to make it even more special, you could book her a table at a restaurant for after the event where she could go with her friends, and arrange to have a birthday cake delivered to her table by the staff.

Quick tip
On her birthday, join a hobby class of her choice, like dance, arts and crafts, or knitting. You two will also get to spend some quality time together.

Romantic Ideas To Surprise Your Wife

Here are a few ideas to surprise your wife, on any day that you want to, which will make her love you all the more and cherish each moment spent:

1. Pamper session at home:

Give her a special spa treatment at home and the best part about this experience will be that you will be the personal spa masseuse who will help take care of her various wellness needs. Try out some funky ideas instead of simply picking up products from the store and putting them on her. You could dish up some interesting things at home, such as whip up a strawberry and yogurt face pack using fresh ingredients, or make a body massage oil for her at home using essential oils such as lavender, grape seed, almond, coconut, and more. You can also slice up pieces of cucumber to place on her eyes while she is resting with her face pack on. Or, if you would rather turn the romantic massage session into a steamy one, you could whip up a chocolate sauce and get creative. To end the session, you can add some scented candles in the bathroom and give her a rose petal filled warm bath with some essential oils.

2. Go on a shopping spree:

Ask your wife to create a list of her favorite and fascinating items. It could be things that she has tried earlier, or even those that she is completely not sure of using yet. Once you have the list, you could buy her as many of the items as you can find. It is possible that some items may not be available, and you may have to get them shipped online, so be prepared in advance.

3. Quiet getaway to a cottage:

While it is the age of travel and most couples do spend a lot of time in various hotels, there is nothing as romantic as booking a proper old-style cottage. It is a special getaway opportunity where you can treat your wife to some undivided attention and love. She might just love the old-world charm of spending time in a cottage with you. Depending on your budget and where you would prefer to go, you could book yourself for a weekend getaway near a beach or a hill, or even some place which is in the lap of nature. Make sure that the place is away from very crowded areas, but accessible to amenities and places of emergency (you do not want to be stranded away from humanity in case there is any emergency).

4. Write about your love in a letter:

You can give her an experience of the classic romantic times by writing her a love note. The charm of writing by hand and receiving a handwritten letter is something she may miss, without even realizing so. Write her a beautiful, heartfelt letter and describe to her in detail all the reasons why you love her so much. You can tell her about the time you met and the memories you have from then. If you want to make it a little naughty, you could also talk about the many things you would like to do along with her as part of a romantic experience. Make sure you post the letter and arrange to send it to her via the regular old style mail that is delivered by a postman. If you feel that may not be such a good idea where you stay, you could take the help of some courier agency and get it hand-delivered to her at her workplace, or even at home!

5. ‘I love you’ alarm:

There are fewer things that will be more romantic for your wife than to wake up to a special love-filled message from you every morning. If you have access to your wife’s phone, record a special romantic message for her on her phone and set it up as her wake up alarm ringtone. You could add a special message along with a host of kisses, or sing her a special love song. Make sure that you set the alarm tone on high volume so that she is able to wake up at the time she needs to, and does not end up missing an important event!

6. Make her a feel-good basket:

It is possible that your wife has a few simple things that she really loves, but does not get time to use them on a regular basis. It could be simple things such as her favorite magazine, chocolates and snacks, a bottle of perfume, a DVD or CD of her favorite old TV show, a hand cream that has her favorite scent, her choice of cosmetics, and more. You can also add a sweet romantic note along with it, and add a few flowers or candles that you know she will love. Just place it for her on the bed and let her feel special and pampered.

7. Romantic dinner setup:

Depending on how much space you have, arrange a romantic dinner setup that will sweep her off her feet. Instead of the regular candlelight dinner at the dining table, treat her to special something in some other part of the house. For instance, if you have a terrace or a balcony area, you could put up a plain white sheet on one side and string it up with cute fairy lights. Place a small table and two chairs or a floor setting, depending on whatever you prefer. Add a few candles around to for a special romantic vibe. You can also add some fresh flowers or some natural romantic scents, such as roses, lavenders or even night blooms. To make it even more special, buy your wife an elegant dress and keep it on the bed for her to change into before she arrives. Add a few accessories and a perfume along with the dress and place a note telling her that it is what she has to wear for the dinner.

Quick tip
Do something EXTRAordinary! Why not turn into a genie and fulfill all(almost) of her wishes this birthday?

8. Gift her you:

What could be more fun and romantic for your wife than to get a gift which is you? Instead of buying her fancy things, give her a romantic evening of just you. To make it fun, you could present yourself to her in a totally new avatar, maybe a new makeover look that you know she would love, or that she may have suggested sometime for you to try out. Take a big ribbon and tie it around you, and sit in the bedroom for her. Or you could simply wear it like a tie around your neck with no shirt and just your trousers on, and wait for her in the living room, asking her to lead you on wherever she wants to. Give her a romantic pass and tell her that for the time, she can do whatever she pleases with you, and that you will be there to take care of all her desires through the day or night.
