Fun Birthday Party Ideas

Into the Wild...
Awaken the wild streak in your man by arranging for a unique celebration in a secluded, green forest! In other words, go camping! Make it a group outing where all his close buddies and their families are invited. Just imagine how much fun it will be, playing some interesting games or sharing incidents and experiences, while sitting around a bonfire and eating freshly roasted meat!

It's Party Time!
If you believe in some "organized" sort of fun, plan a surprise party for him! To add to the excitement, keep a theme party! "Retro" is a very popular theme for a man's birthday party, wherein everyone comes dressed in clothes that were popular in the 1970s and 1980s and dance to the music famous in that era. If the one you are having a celebration for has reached a milestone age i.e. 30 or 40 or 50, another good theme is "Nostalgia". For such a party, make a slide show of the photographs of the man of all the important events and experiences in his life such as previous birthdays, family holidays, graduation, marriage, birth of children, office promotions, etc. In short, do anything and everything that would make the party a memorable one for the birthday boy! Some other popular themes that you can consider are "Casino", "Pirates" and "Hollywood".

Something Romantic...
For those of you looking for romantic birthday celebration ideas, how about a boat ride for just the two of you, under the stars? So, see if you can arrange for a boat ride in a nearby river. Carry a food basket with some of his favorite stuff especially cooked by you as well as good quality wine. The dark night, water making splashes against your boat, stars shining above and you two sharing sweet nothings! This can be one of the most romantic ideas for your husband's birthday, isn't it?

Are You Game?
If the man you are planning a birthday celebration for, is totally into sports (which by the way is true for almost all men), plan the party at a soccer game. Book some of the best seats in the stadium for him and the invitees, cheer and root for the birthday boy's favorite team while gulping on the beer! After the game, you can plan to take the invitees to a nearby bar for snacks and drinks.

Something Adventurous...
Most men enjoy participating in adventure sports. Even the ones who have never tried it, love watching it on the television. So, on this birthday, plan an outing for him and his friends wherein he gets to try out things like "rock climbing", "sky diving", "bungee jumping", "car racing", etc. Trying something new or adrenaline pumping on one's birthday, is an idea which would find a lot of appreciation with men.

A birthday celebration would be incomplete if you do not gift something special to him. Electronic gadgets, wine bottles, a gift basket containing homemade cakes and pastries, clothes, accessories like leather belts and wallets - all these make for great gifts for men, so you can choose any of these depending upon your budget and the liking of the one who they are meant for. In the end, whether it is selecting gifts or throwing a party or planning an outdoor activity, do not forget to tell the man through your words and actions how good he is! Believe me, this will be the best birthday gift for him!
