So, you’ve got your partner’s birthday coming up, and you want to do something special for them? Celebrate their birthday by showing them you care and perhaps try this year to think further outside the box than you did last year; this helps to show your partner that you care and you want to make them happy with an added element of surprise. There’s likely to be some gifts that are old favorites and reliable present ideas, so stick with those too but incorporate a new element to gifting and excite your partner on their special day. Whether you’re throwing a party or keeping the day a small and intimate affair, take note and begin preparing for your partner’s upcoming birthday.
Prepare Nice And Early
The secret to pulling off a great party is in the organization and the good timing, so take advantage of any time you have in the run-up to your partner’s birthday and begin sourcing materials for the party you might be having. You can also circulate the invitations ahead of time, and wrap the presents in good time so that you do not have to worry closer to the big day. If you have food at the party, then sort the catering weeks in advance too, this way you’ll take the stress out of the equation, and you can relax in the knowledge that the food will be sorted. You’ll then be free to concern yourself with others matters like finding the perfect gift or experience to give your partner.
Gifts that are personalized always feel special, and they show that you went that little bit further when considering a gift. Instead of choosing a generic card that says “Happy Birthday,” look online to personalize the card you send to your partner. Or you could make a card that communicates your love for your partner and personalizes it with their name. Perhaps something special and unique to your relationship, you could use an image of the two of you together as a backdrop, for example. Gifts that have inscriptions, like photo frames, are a tasteful and romantic gesture and idea for a meaningful gift. You could have the photo frame engraved with the date of your anniversary, or perhaps even an abbreviation of something relevant to your relationship; if the two of you have pet names, then you could abbreviate the name on the pen so that only you two understand what it refers to.
Check The Date
Always, always double check the dates of your planned party to ensure that there are no mishaps on the day, and you find yourself canceling at short notice to attend a work commitment that had been organized months before deciding to throw your partner a birthday party. To be extra careful, plan the party on the weekend and let your boss know you’re having a party just in case they wanted to rope you into some late notice work. The task of decorating the venue, which may be your own house or garden, may fall on you, so plan how you’d like it to look in advance and start a Pinterest board of all the ideas you have for making it look just the way you want it to.
