A handmade gift says a lot about your true feelings and how important your partner is to you. You don’t need to be a Picasso or Frida Kahlo; keep the art projects simple yet expressive. Consider giving them a scrapbook or a memory book filled with pictures of the special moments you’ve shared.

21. Party at Workplace

22. Have a Date at The Place You First Met

If you’ve been together for a while, this is especially great. It’s a fantastic idea for the night before your partner’s birthday. Go back to where you had your first date or first hug. It’ll bring back all those happy memories from when you were getting to know each other. You can even host a little party at that spot with a love-themed setup and a heart-shaped cake to revive those sweet memories between you.

Nothing tops a classic pool party on a hot summer day, especially with lots of vibrant floats. If you don’t have a pool, no problem, you can rent one. You can also grab inflatable pools and set them up in your living room to hold drinks. Get a lively pool-themed cake and have a blast with your partner on this colorful day.

25. Date on The Beach 

If your partner’s birthday falls in the summer (or if you’re in a place that’s always warm), head to the nearest beach! A beach date is a great idea because, come on, what’s better than soaking up the sun and appreciating each other’s beach-ready bodies in public? Make the day even more special by surprising your significant other with a new swimsuit or bringing along stuff for a birthday beach picnic.

26. Plant Flower in The Garden 

If your special someone enjoys caring for plants, they’ll appreciate waking up to some new additions to their garden. Whether it’s large indoor plants or beautiful outdoor flowers, you can create a romantic display that shows your love year after year. Consider adding heart-themed garden decorations or signs for sweet love notes to make your floral gift extra romantic.
