Why not do something romantic, something special that they will never forget. A gift that will earn you brownie points for years to come.

Nothing is more romantic than attention. Hiding love notes around the house, leaving them romantic voice mails and sending sweet texts are all ways to ingratiate yourself into the heart of your loved one. And of course, nothing is more romantic than preparing an evening for just the two of you. Partly out on the town perhaps at a romantic French or Italian restaurant, then to take in a movie or a play, and make sure to always top off a romantic evening with something special the two of you can do under the stars (if weather permits). Dancing, dining, sharing a glass (or two) of champagne, listening to music, renting or borrowing a telescope to get up close and personal with the stars.
Great romantic birthday gifts can and should be an all day affair. Start your partner off with breakfast in bed. Present their favorite breakfast (pancakes; Belgian waffles; an omelet) with fresh cut fruit, bacon or sausage, and of course, a single rose (in their favorite color) in a bud vase.
Drive them to their favorite places in town, or take a Sunday drive (even if it’s not Sunday) to do some antiquing, visit a casino, visit a winery, walk on the beach. Make sure to take your camera, as you’ll want to retain as many memories as possible of this day!
