Parties can be a lot of fun and a lot of work. It isn’t just the organizing, set up and clean up that can consume your energy. If you or your spouse are introverted, you may find the actual party to be challenging and that can keep you from fully enjoying yourself. Fortunately, there are many things you can do to make your spouse’s birthday special without hosting a party.
Try Something New
For a good laugh and an unexpected thrill, your spouse’s birthday may be the perfect time for a mechanical bull rental. Has your spouse always wondered if they could last 10 seconds or more? Bringing some fresh entertainment to your home can be a lot of fun. It’s a unique way of creating original birthday memories, and the pictures will make golden family content to look back on.
See A Show
Buy some theatre tickets and see a show your spouse has always been interested in. There are many classic plays and new successes that you can enjoy seeing live. If you don’t usually go to the theatre this can also be a very special way of celebrating a birthday. This can also be combined with a trip to the city and dinner.
A Day At The Spa
A trip to a spa could be the perfect gift if your spouse needs a chance to relax. This is ideal for those busy with their careers or raising young children. Spa options vary. You can opt to sign them up for a massage, a facial and a makeover. Your spouse will feel recharged and a spa visit can also boost your spouse’s mental and physical health.
A night out to see a band or comedian can be the perfect way to celebrate a birthday. This is a great option if one of your spouse’s favorite performers is going to be nearby. When you show you know what your spouse enjoys your gift will be more meaningful.
Relive Some Memories
Plan an outing where you get a chance to indulge in some favorite activities you used to share. Visit a favorite restaurant you haven’t been to in a while. Recreate your first date. You can also create a chance for your spouse to participate in an activity they liked when they were young. Possible activities include roller skating, ice skating, mini-golf, and go-karting.
Take In A Sporting Event
If your spouse has a favorite sports team they may enjoy going to a live game. Football, basketball, hockey, and baseball aren’t the only sports you can consider, either. Go to a tennis match. Buy tickets to the Preakness to see a horse race. You can also opt for a birthday trip to the Daytona 500 if your spouse enjoys car racing.
A Recreation Weekend
Plan a trip to a resort with the types of activities your spouse will enjoy. Swimmers can combine a vacation with a beachfront destination in the summer months or stay at a resort with an indoor water park. Those who enjoy golf may prefer to stay at a resort on a golf course. You can also book a hotel by the beach and plan outings for surfing, kayaking, or boating.
A Night In
Your spouse may prefer a quiet evening at home to relax. Cook a special meal or order in from a favorite restaurant. Indulge your spouse with a special gift they will enjoy. Music lovers may enjoy a record player and some new records. If they prefer movies they may appreciate a home theater upgrade.
Try Something New
A birthday can be an excellent opportunity to try new activities. Sign up for salsa lessons. Plan a trip in a hot air balloon. Take a pottery class. Consider the types of activities your spouse has mentioned that they always wanted to try and give them a chance to make their dreams a reality.
Try Something Daring
Many people have a bucket list of things they would like to do before they die. Sign them up to go skydiving. Pay for scuba diving lessons. A birthday can be an excellent opportunity to give your spouse a chance to cross something off their list and it’s a gift they will remember and appreciate.
