Tomorrow is Cody’s birthday! I love birthdays and figuring out gifts for people. I like to mix a few store bought items with some sort of event or “non store item”. So today I wanted to share a few ideas for the non store items and celebrating his big day for every budget:
$$$ Exotic Car Racing: If your guy is anything like mine, even the thought of driving fast cars at (terrifyingly) high speeds is enough to get his adrenaline pumping. Motorsports parks are a great place to let them fulfill those dreams. In addition to letting him walk on the wild side, this gesture is a huge symbol of your faith in his driving abilities. A lot of facilities will also offer motorcycle and kart racing too. Major cities like Las Vegas, New York, and California have exotic racing options, like Lamborghinis, Porches, and Ferrari’s but staying local is great option if you are looking to save.
$-$$$ Sporting Event: Tickets to a game are a go-to on most guys’ lists and luckily the options are pretty much endless! For those looking to splurge, a quick overnight trip to catch one of his favorite teams is one for the books. Local professional or college games can be just as much fun to attend, especially for those that want to partake in the tailgating experience. For those on a budget, you might be surprised at how affordable the less desirable seats can be for certain games. Plus a hot dog tastes just as good in the nosebleeds as it does in the front row.
$-$$ Couples’ Massage: If your man is more the type that likes to unwind, consider scheduling a couples’ massage. The best part? You get to enjoy it too. Some massage chains have discounted introductory rates to make this gift more affordable, but also consider massage therapists at chiropractic or therapy clinics that might have lower rates. Another option that he might enjoy even more is a stay at home massage from you. Light a few candles, put on some relaxing music, and grab some lotion – and your ready for your at home massage session.
$$ Classic Shave: This might be hit or miss, depending on your significant others taste but I like to imagine a classic barbershop shave is akin to a girls mani/pedi. Research local barbershops and read reviews before you send him to a stranger with a razor at your man’s throat 🙂
$ Birthday Boy’s Choice: Celebrations don’t need to be extravagant to be memorable. One of the best, and easiest, presents is to let him choose dinner and a movie. Maybe it’s you guys going out, or maybe it’s staying in cooking his favorite meal. You might end up eating wings and watching a ninja or superhero movie, but he will be happy – and really that’s all that matters.
Free – Coupon Book: Ok, in some sense this isn’t free. After all, we will end up doing some work when he’s cashing in on the coupons, but this is a great way to merge romantic and practical into one. Include IOUs for things he will enjoys, like full control over the remote for the night, a daytime lingerie shoe, or maybe a coupon for his favorite homemade dessert. This gift will be priceless – something he can’t get for himself.
No matter what you choose, he will appreciate you taking the time to plan something out! Below are a few more pieces I’m loving inspired by our look above.
