Of course, you are usually excited when your loved one’s birthday is coming up too. It is a chance for you to show your love for them.

Your boyfriend’s birthday will generally consist of these activities, but as a girlfriend, you will need to make things more unique and spiced up.

In this article, we will show you examples of things to do for your boyfriend’s birthday.

1. Organize a Special Get-Together

Spending time together with your family is simple and perfect. With family, you can even ask them for small tips on how to make the day a success. Ask about his favorite board games, great childhood meals, and even favorite cartoons.

Giving your boyfriend bought gifts is nice but sometimes it’s the effort into getting the gifts that makes it more special. An easy-gotten gift may not be enough to make him feel special.

Making DIY gifts is a great way to go. It will not only be perfect for your boyfriend, but it will also be fun for you when you make them. You can make decorative gifts such as a lava lamp or personalized candles. Search for guidance on how to make different things from kids’ TV shows or YouTube. Make sure you incorporate all his likes.

3. Enrich the Day with His Favorite Cuisine

Sages have always said that food is the way to the heart. If you love cooking, this will also be an opportunity to have fun in the kitchen. 

If you don’t want to cook, you can make reservations at his favorite restaurant. You can go crazy and order a whole buffet. His birthday is a good excuse to eat that much anyway.

Some restaurants also have birthday offers so you can also check this out while looking for the perfect place. Some restaurants have a lot of choices, so it would be wise to take a look at the menu before you head there.

Also, consider your boyfriend’s culture and pick a nice place. Restaurants that have been around for a long time are the best most of the time.

4. Plan a Birthday Outing or Adventure

An outdoor adventure may be just what your boyfriend needs to help him get back on track. Going on a nature trail especially leaves one feeling rejuvenated and calm in spirit and soul. Simple canoeing also has this effect.

You can also go extreme and choose to hike or rock climb.

For a birthday outing, there are so many places to choose from. You could ride a rollercoaster together, ride horses, or even organize a fun challenging race with prizes. Invite all your friends to have maximum fun.

5. Buy Him a Gift

This is the most common thing to do so when picking a gift for him, you should show some thoughtfulness and effort. This will make the gift special and in turn make him feel special. 

An example of a gift you can check out is this photo engraved unique zebra wood watch. Its casing is made of wood, making it look unique from all other watches. It can be customized with a picture of your choosing and engraved with any sweet words you may have for him. Choose a special picture for the watch to make a wonderful keepsake.

Its design is truly eye-catching, and your boyfriend will love it.

This engraved skeleton king ring with a birthstone in black is also a great gift. It is a sterling silver ring whose band is designed to look like a skull with a crown on it. The eye sockets are where the birthstones are inserted, making it look gothic but bright. The crown is also embellished with some jewels, making this ring shimmer.

This ring will be ideal for casual wear. Your boyfriend will surely love it if he is a goth or pirate enthusiast. It can symbolize power due to the crown being worn by the skeleton, and wealth due to the birthstones and dainty crown.

6. Recreate Your First Date

Making all the special moments that made your first date will be nostalgic and fun. It will also remind you both of all the reasons why you fell in love with each other.

Make it exciting and try to do everything exactly the way you did it back then. You can also still add some more activities that your boyfriend will enjoy to the day.

If it’s not possible to recreate your first date, you can still pick out the things you can redo and make them even better. Make sure you take pictures that you can compare with the ones on your first date.

7. Make Him Breakfast In Bed

Nothing like starting off your birthday celebration from the second you wake up to the last minute of the day. Your boyfriend will already feel special knowing you remembered and planned early enough to give him breakfast in bed.

Make him his favorite delicacies and also add on some new recipes you are sure he will like. They say food is love for a reason.

8. Volunteer Together

Charity has always brought joy to the people doing it as well as those receiving it. Tag your boyfriend along to go make the community a better place.

You can volunteer at a soup kitchen, animal shelter, or other organizations that aim for positive change. Volunteering has a lot of benefits to the volunteer, so why not get them with your boyfriend?

9. Share a Bath

A sexy birthday present for him, you can continue this in the bedroom. Make the bath as bubbly as possible, and set the mood with soul or RnB music playing mellow in the background. Don’t forget to turn the lights a warm yellow, or better yet, have some candles surround you. 

This will create a surreal mood of warmth and calmness that will allow you and your boyfriend to share your deepest thoughts with each other. You will come out of that bath feeling more connected and intimate with each other.

10. Head To A Wine Tasting

This is a rather fancy but still excellent approach. Do it the way the filthy rich barons do it, dust off your fanciest wear, and have a good time in the fields. Make sure you capture the moments, they will make lovely memories.

After the wine tasting, you can end the day with full-on wine drinking. Getting drunk together should make for funny memories together.

11. Get a Couple’s Massage

This is a birthday gift that he will definitely appreciate. Being alive is great and worth celebrating, but also stressful. This couple’s massage will leave him feeling lighter, happier, and ready to take on another year of being alive.

There are various types of massages so you should research which ones you would like before getting to the parlor.

12. Go to the Cinema

Going to see a movie is a great idea. The experience is usually more fun in a cinema with great sound effects. Choose a movie with a lot of stunts to have a better experience with sound effects and motion pictures.

Make sure you choose a theater with good air conditioning and comfortable seats.

13. Binge Watch His Favorite Show

You can decide to keep it cute and cozy by staying indoors and watching your favorite show. Snuggling up together will make him feel loved by you, and it will be one of his best birthdays.

If it so happens that that show is not your favorite, you can still watch some episodes with him for that quality time together.

Add some wine and snacks to the mix to have an even better time watching the show.

14. Buy him a jersey

You know your boyfriend’s favorite sports team and how much he adores it. There is always a certain player he adores, you can find out his jersey number and have a jersey made for him with his name on it. He will glow in the sight of his brand-new jersey and both of you will be happy. You, for giving the perfect gift, and him for receiving it.


As you may have noticed, all the ideas we discussed primarily involve making you have good memories together. Prioritize this. As a couple, you are now technically one person, so whatever makes him happy should make you happy too.

A surprise party will always make the birthday more memorable. To make it more effective, you can act like you’ve forgotten all about his special day, then surprise him with the perfect treat.

On your boyfriend’s birthday, remember that your gift should carry some intimacy to it. It shouldn’t look like his other gifts.

Make sure that at the end of the day, he is happy and grateful for letting you share in his birthday celebration.
