If his birthday is round the corner and you are wondering what to do, then here are some ideas to celebrate it on a budget.
So, it is his birthday and you have no idea what you can do to make the day special for him. It is actually quite difficult to think of such ideas, as there are many things that you need to keep in mind, starting from his interest to the budget. It is very important to take into consideration the budget before organizing any event.
Fixing a budget does not mean that you have to ignore his likes and dislikes, as there are many such options that too, on a budget and that he is sure to like as well. However, there are a few things that you will have to consider before deciding the same.
First of all, the guests. That is, if you are thinking of throwing a party for him, you will have to take into consideration the number of guests. The bigger your guest list, the greater will be the expenses.
Some other things that you will need to consider is the gift, the decorations, the menu, etc. The gift could be any one of these ideas in the form of a surprise to him. Here are some ideas that have already taken care of all these things. Further, it would also help if you want to spend this occasion without any guests.

Lavish Homemade Dinner

This can be a romantic one. You need not go to a five-star hotel for a lavish dinner, you can do it at home itself. There are many advantages of home parties. You have to spend only $50-$100 if you cook at home, compared to at least $400-$1000 in a fancy restaurant.
Secondly, at home you can prepare all of his favorite dishes. The meal does not have to be a four-course one, in fact, do not have a lengthy meal. Have a couple of dishes starting from his favorite snack and ending with his favorite dessert.
The restaurant food won't have that special homemade taste, and basically you won't get all of his favorite dishes at one place. The most important advantage is, however, that you get to spend some quality time together, and you are not disturbed by anyone. Do not forget to bake a cool cake as well.

A Small but Cool Party

Guys generally like to spend this day with their friends, so if you wish to make him really happy, throw him a small surprise party. You do not need to invite the guests to your place, it will just add in the work.
Instead throw a nice pizza party. Decorate the pizza parlor with steamers and balloons in his absence. He will surely like this idea. Pizza party shouldn't cost you a lot, and the decoration will not cost you much. Pizza is something that everyone likes, so you need not worry about your guests enjoying themselves.
You can also have his favorite music played in the background. He is sure to like this surprise.

Outdoor Picnic

An outdoor picnic is also a great choice. Simply pack your bags and go to your favorite destination. It need not be an island such as Andaman and Nicobar, it just has to be a quiet place. Spend the day fishing and lying in the meadows. This will be relaxing for him.
If he is not a travel enthusiast or if he doesn't like relaxing retreats, he might find it boring. So, if he is of the 'active and energetic' types, you can go for a trek, obviously not with a trekking group, just the two of you. You can also cook lunch at the destination and enjoy having it there. He will surely remember this unique birthday for long.

Treasure Hunt

This is one of the most exciting ideas. Who said treasure hunt is only for kids, even adults can enjoy it, provided it is planned well. So to make his day special and unique, you can organize a treasure hunt for him. Ask the guests to collect different things, give each of the group one specific direction.
Ask the guests to click photos with that specific thing, for example, if they have to find a tattoo artist, tell them to click photos with him. The final clue should lead the groups to the venue of the party. Everyone including him will enjoy it.
You can choose any of the aforementioned ideas or make changes to them and come up with some other creative ones of your own. Whatever, it may be, your beloved will surely appreciate the efforts you take for this special occasion.
