No matter how old we get, we always love to hype up our birthdays. Birthdays never go out of style, they return every year and you're sure to receive at least one gift every year. What people do for you on your birthday, the way they plan it, how they execute it and how you feel when you see all their love and the efforts that they put in, is an ethereal experience for you for those hours. A 25th birthday is an important milestone that we cross, especially guys. Guys turning 25 suddenly find themselves on the brink of a revolutionized age where the girls become women and these women begin considering them as men, not boys. If you have a boy in your life who is soon going to be celebrating this special milestone, then you need to make sure he does so in style. In this Buzzle article, you'll find some 25th birthday ideas for him that you can use to make the day special for him.
Here's the meat. In this section, we'll give you the lowdown on the different things you can do to make his day that extra bit special. They range from simple to unique to downright outrageous. So there's something for everyone. This way whatever type this young man is, you'll know of something to do for him on his silver birth anniversary (wow that makes him sound old!).
Buy Him a Pet
Is your guy an animal lover? Has he been whining about how he wants a pet so bad!? Well then, looks like it's time for you to play his genie. Since you're with him, you probably know what exactly he wants as a pet. If you don't, then find out. Once you find out what he wants, begin your search for the pet. There are a lot of places that organize pet adoption drives so that homeless animals like dogs, cats, hamsters, etc. can find a home to live in. Go to one such place and fix an appointment for his birthday. Then, on the day, without telling him where you are going, just take him there and ask him to choose any little animal that he wants as a pet. He'll love it for sure.
Indulge his Hobby
Is there a particular hobby that your guy follows fervently? Is there one particular activity that he devotes time to everyday? There's bound to be something. Reading, music, collecting coins, stamps, miniatures, movie posters, ashtrays, pocket watches, alcohol bottles, miniature cars, etc. Find out what he collects and then hunt around for rare pieces of those items. Antique stores, online dealers, flea markets, you never know where you'll stumble upon something that will make him happy. Buy him these rare pieces and watch his face light up with excitement.
Gamble the Night Away
If you want an idea for a surprise party, then this one's perfect. Save up some serious money over a couple of months. On his birthday, reserve a table at a restaurant that has a casino. Don't tell him where you are headed. Blindfold him and take him directly to the casino. Once there, open the blindfold and let him gamble his heart out for that one night. Whether he wins or loses, treat him to an elaborate dinner at the restaurant afterwards.
This is probably an overused idea, but it's a sure shot winner. So you can expect him to love it. Prepare an elaborate scavenger hunt for him, in which he will uncover 25 birthday gifts. Involve your common friends and ask them to help you with the clues and the gifts. Make him spend the entire day roaming around the city figuring out the clues and collecting his gifts. You can have friends at some points in the hunt waiting for him with the gift. Ask them not to say a word. Just give him the gift and the clue to the next gift. At the end of the hunt, make sure all of you are present to wish him a happy birthday and have a rocking party.
Make a Movie
An inexpensive idea (and how we love those) is to make a video or a movie about him. Ask his friends, family and colleagues to say a few words about him for his birthday. Use a good quality camera and sound recording system. Find a few friends who he's not in touch with if you can manage it. Compile all these clips together into a movie and edit it appropriately. On his birthday, create a theater like ambiance, get yourselves a bowl of popcorn and watch this movie together. It's sure to be a very sentimental one, so keep some tissues at the ready, just in case.
Making someone feel extraordinarily special on their birthday is the best gift you can give them. And being his 25th, it has to be even more so. Put in a lot of thought into planning the entire day, pay attention to little details, show how you care for him through the thoughtful gifts that you give him. There's not much more he can ask for.
