If you want to celebrate her birthday perfectly, you need to start planning well in advance and make every part of the day special for her. When choosing the gift, remember the words of Margaret Rucker, a consumer psychologist at the University of California, who states that women prefer getting gifts that have emotional significance.
However, a celebration of your loved one’s birthday is not only about the present. Fill the whole day with special experiences that will express your love and you’ll be amazed at how much your bond with strengthen from this celebration.
4 Ideas for How to Celebrate Her Birthday Perfectly
1. Post notes of love everywhere
Get a few packs of post-its and you’ll get one of the best birthday decorations you can find. They may not look fancy, but if the note is full of feelings your girlfriend or wife will definitely appreciate them more than any professional decorations.
You can use this idea in many ways. The easiest is post congratulatory notes all over your (or her if you aren’t living together yet) bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen. However, you can take a romance a step further and decorate an entire room with a thousand reasons why you love your most precious girl.
If it works for your situation, consider getting her workplace decorated as well. You can also get her colleagues onto this and make a fantastic surprise that will touch the very dep0th of her heart and make this birthday celebration unforgettable.
2. Find a gift with a deeper meaning
Gender stereotypes are debunked every day, but psychologists agree that women tend to appreciate sentimental gifts more. So, if you want to celebrate her birthday perfectly, you need to find a gift that will have value beyond the actual use of the item.
Men are often practical beings and will measure presents by their cost/prestige/etc. Therefore, you might need some help getting the best ideas. Take your time looking for tips at specialized websites like giftideasforher.ca.
You also shouldn’t forget that you can customize your ‘practical’ gift to give it sentimental value. For example, engraving a piece of jewelry with a personal message or choosing to add a detail to your main gift that has a special meaning to the two of you.
3. Cook at least one meal of the day
Nothing beats the all-time classic of a romantic meal together. And even if you aren’t the best cook, she will appreciate the effort you put into just to put a smile on her face. If you have plans for the night, use lunch or breakfast as your ‘personal chef’ time. A breakfast in bed will get your day off to a great start. However, depending on your situation, you can also provide her with a personalized lunch at work.
The point here is to make the meal special for her. Even if you simply bring a takeout container for lunch, make sure to decorate it with a message or card.
4. Bring a person she’s been missing
While it’s natural to want to celebrate her birthday together and make it about you as a couple, you should never forget it’s her special day. And helping her meet a person she’s been missing is a great way to show how much you care about her happiness. This will also make a fantastic surprise.
Do your best to fly in the relative or friend who is living far away. If that’s not possible, set up a surprise video conference for her.
Sad as it is, the person your lover is missing might no longer be with you. In this case, consider joining forces with her other friends/family to arrange a photo collage of her best memories with them or order a hand-drawn portrait made from pictures that will contain all of you together.
