Romantic Birthday Surprises to Make Your Loved One Feel Wonderful

Guy kissing a girl and surprising her with words
Coming up with ideas of what to gift the significant other for their birthday driving you nuts, making the mind clock tick-tock and bringing about similar other confusing allegories? I get it, I get it. Ideas for romantic birthday surprises would be very welcome then, huh? Getting to those in the following article, I promise.
♥ ♥ Her Take...
I didn't know what I'd give him. All I knew was that it had to be the most romantic thing in the world. It goes something like this - I absolutely adore the way his face lights up, the way he sheepishly mulls over the surprise (gift or not) and the color that rises to his cheeks after the gift has been opened and admired. Then the dimpled smile makes way...and for that, for just that, I'd want the birthday to never end. You get it, don't you? Birthday surprises are like that. Romantic birthday surprises, even more so. The gesture overrides, the emotion does what an aphrodisiac would, and the brimming of the heart with love (the all consuming, the overriding, the sudden tumult) is all that lingers.
♥ ♥ His Take...
In a life that usually-mostly-always happens waaay too fast, when there really is no time to look up from the work schedule and other commitments that we must fulfill, she sometimes feels ignored. I don't blame her. She's all about the career as well. And though she does not admit it, or maybe she's buried it somewhere deep, deep inside - all she needs is a little romance, just a little, to bring out a side of her that she usually sheaths under Gucci shoes and a Prada S.p.A suit. For her to see what I see when I look at her. A romantic surprise is all it'll take. And though it may not be what she expects from me, this year, it'll be my turn to see the color rise to her cheeks and her biting her lower lip from curbing the brimming of emotions. You'll see.
Romantic birthday surprises. Of the anticipation, the things leading up to it, the silk and the satin, the webbing of romantic fantasies, the wantings and the cravings...You do realize I could go on and on with the allegories, no? So I'll stop before I give this piece a romance novel-esque feel. That's not what this is about. It is about understanding the fact that for a romantically involved couple, a romantic birthday surprise is not just how it sounds or looks on paper, it is what it means and signifies, instead. Being in a relationship and knowing how to keep the love flowing. A romantic surprise is but a means to an end.
Romantic Birthday Surprises for Him
The best thing about guys? A little gesture is enough to take them a long, long way. They don't need the over-the-top, overly dramatic gestures or overtures and exaggerated settings. Guys are simple like that. You keep it simple and sweet and that's all it'll take. Really. These ideas then? Just for him and you. Only, only.
♥ The Holy Grail of the Treasure Trail...
...of your body, I mean. Too bold? Hell no. He'll go bonkers over this one. Too many emotions overload, maybe. Hear me out. So let's just say that you're done with the whole shindig of the gifting and the singing and the 'happy, happy, happy birthday baby' business. Now? Now you give him the birthday surprise - challenge him to find the drop of honey on your body. Only he can't use his hands. So, so primal and no need for any hullabaloo. Awesome? Awesome.
♥ The Letter at Midday...
It's all about the teasing - Swear. Tease...Torment...Torture. Why would you not? Why would you let the opportunity slip by? On his birthday, least of all. I'll tell you how to make this happen. Plan it a day before his day, let it happen on the eve of his birthday. While he's in the shower, you slip a piece of your delicate clothing in his brief case. I'm thinking red and lacy. Spritz it with your perfume. Then find the tie he will wear that day and use some of the perfume on there as well. Guaranteed he'll be thinking only about you, wondering when the day will end. Then when he gets to the office and finds the red lacy thing? Overdrive. If he calls, don't pick it up. Torture, remember? This is where you start the teasing marathon. Neatly wrapped with the negligee is a letter of lust and romance. What letter? The one you penned down, complete with all the fantasies and fetishes. Complete with detailed accounts of what you want to do to him...slow torture, ladies. Slow torture. And then death by deed in the eve when you greet him at the doorstep in something scandalous. What a birthday it'll be.
Romantic Birthday Surprises for Her
Girls are all about the mush and romance. No two ways about it. And there is not much that will change about it either. Accept and submit to the fact. While a teddy bear from a high school sweetheart gives her a high in the young days, maybe a heart framed snap as she grows up is what it takes to get the heart beating. If you ask me, there's still a little thrill in getting a teddy bear after all these years. Maybe that's just me. And I digress. The point being, girls are all about the elaborately planned romantic escapades. How to get her that romantic surprise? Ideas, ideas.
♥ The Sweet Escape...
So every girl dreams of a knight in shining armor, you know? She does. At some time in her life or all her life. And when reality takes over, we realize that there are no fairy tales, only relationships - of the ups and downs. This birthday? Make it all about that fairy tale. Be chivalrous as hell, be romantic as hell...be her knight in shining armor. And I'll tell you what, girls don't really need the over-the-top business either. They just need to know that you appreciate them, think of them and need them in your life. Which will all happen when you do all the things that make her feel special. How? Whisk her away to a breathtaking location. Pack her a special meal and then spend the day, just the two of you, swimming, laughing and of course romancing. What will heighten the thrill? Don't tell a soul. Ditch the cell phone and be gone. Just the two of you, in an undisclosed insanely romantic location, and you making it happen. Fireworks baby, fireworks.
♥ A Bed of Roses and More...
Don't want to go all the way somewhere? No problem. Turn the home into her haven. Get her friends to take her away while you do up the house. Rose petals leading to the bedroom, candles lining the house, white satin sheets, romantic music, chocolates, finger foods, warm bath water, intoxicating perfume in the air. Massages and baths later, sit her down and draw out an archaic looking paper that has a poem written for her especially. I swear the poem will be the end of her. Gift her something really romantic. What do you think she'll like? A photo frame with her morning after snap, black and white and romantic? Or how about a sapphire ring with your names carved under? Think, think. And then? And then you do what the bed of roses demands. What she likes, what you like, what you'll like. Blur the lines between romance and erotic. Just this once and then again and again.
It does not just have to be a once a year deal, you know? Continue the surprise act through the year with simple gestures like sending flowers over at work or writing her a love letter, or a coded letter that spells 'I love you'.
With romantic surprises like these, it's a pity that birthdays are a once in a year affair. Romantic-Lustful-Erotic. That's what you need to plan this year. Nothing more to say. Nothing more required, either.
