Planning an unforgettable birthday for your special someone? While a great dinner or a once-in-a-lifetime date is always a romantic choice, it should also be accompanied by a birthday gift that shows them just how important they are to you.
That said, we do understand that shopping for your other half can be challenging and can lead you to feel nervous about what to get them. If that sounds like you, don’t worry – here are some heartwarming birthday gifts that will be just perfect for your special someone!
A Family Cookbook
Does your other half love to cook? If so, consider creating a family cookbook in which you can include special recipes the two of you share and add secret recipes from your own family history to add a touch of sentimentality. Additionally, you can also consider contacting your other half’s family to ask about any special family recipes they may have grown up with that their parents or siblings would be willing to share with you.
Not only is this a heartwarming gift, but it can also earmark the beginning of your life together. To do this, leave some pages free at the end of the book so you can add recipes to the book together!
Do you have a favorite photograph of the two of you that you cherish? If so, consider looking for a company that specializes in custom photo printing & enlargements to enlarge and frame it. It can then be gifted to your other half as a symbol of the love you share or as the first piece of décor that you can add to your shared home.
This gift is also a great option if one or both of you have children. You can hang up family photos with your children, displaying to the family that the two of you are building together, whether it be a traditional nuclear family or a blended family.
Fresh Flower Subscription Service
If your special someone loves flowers and enjoys being surprised with gifts, consider signing them up for a fresh flower subscription service. You can anonymously send them the flowers on their birthday and then let them be surprised by the subscription service over the next few days before you reveal that you’re behind it. A subscription service is a great way to make your other half feel special throughout the year without worrying that you may forget to pick up flowers.
There are numerous services for you to choose from, so you’re sure to find one that works within your budget. Additionally, you don’t need to opt for a whole year of flowers – you can choose a service that offers a subscription for as long as you want it to run.
Buying a birthday gift for your special someone can be nerve-wracking, especially if this is your first time getting them a special gift. Any of these gifts should show your other half how much you care for them – and if you’re looking for something else, don’t be afraid to buy them something from your heart to show them just how much they mean to you!
