Why are birthdays such a big deal anyway?
Well, you’d be surprised to know that the birthday ideas you choose can tell your lady love a lot about your personality. And, the kind of life she can expect to have with you.
Here’s another interesting fact. Women like to gauge the future of a relationship by the way their men plan their birthdays. And, that’s proved by Psychology Today. Read this feature that talks to you about how a woman sees a special gift as her man being in tune with her hidden desires. A thoughtful gift tells her that she is important to him and that he also cherishes the relationship as much as she does. Going out to different places to try exotic cuisine talks about your adventurous nature, and that you understand the importance of making each other happy in unique and whimsical ways.

1. Have a Surprise Birthday Party
Before you go, “what’s novel about that?” let’s tell you that it is the venue you select that should be totally new, weird, and absolutely exciting. Depending on her interests, you could take her to unusual and offbeat places. Like, for instance, a castle or maybe, dinner in an underground cellar or underwater location. It could be just the two of you or you could invite her closest friends and family members. New escape games worldwide are one of the latest and most unexpected venues where you can take her.
The idea behind an escape game is simple. You will be locked in a room in a group of 6 to 8 guests with the objective to get out in 60 to 90 minutes. A series of clues hidden around the room lead you to the key and you’ll have a supervisor monitoring the room and offering hints in case you get stuck. Escape games have various themes and difficulty levels so you can take your girlfriend for an immersive experience where she can step into the sets of her favorite movie or book. You can also prolong the adventure by choosing a game with a series of rooms, each of which must be cracked within the allotted time.
2. Plan a Surprise Getaway
By adding a twist to the weekend getaway you’re planning with her, you can turn it into a novel birthday idea. In the two weeks leading up to the big day, bring her a series of gifts that can act as clues for the surprise. For instance, say, you have a beachside destination in mind. Begin by gifting her items like suntan lotion, sarong, sunglasses, flip flops, beach towel, pretty sunhat, and other things that she can use. With a little imagination, you should be able to come up with 8 to 10 items for each day leading up to the surprise.
