Some people find romantic birthday gifts to be a little cheesy. But if
you give it in a truly romantic way, you lose the “cheese” factor, and
upgrade the experience to a heart-fluttering moment.
Frankly, you can make just about any good gift a romantic one. It’s all about delivery.
Set the mood first. Then present the gift in a sweet way and
watch your honey swoon. We have ideas for that too… but I digress. You
came for the romantic gifts.
This is a list that wins for both men and women. Here you go!
Take your sweetheart to the place he or she finds most romantic –
whether that is something as exotic as the Bahamas and Paris, or as
close as a nearby botanical garden or 5 star hotel. Even an old
fashioned train ride would be romantically exciting!
Remember this: if you don’t have something to unwrap on your birthday, you always feel a little ripped off. So be sure to wrap up the plane tickets or a birthday gift certificate to show where you are going.
Put together a romantic birthday gift basket for him or her. To set the
mood, include a set of candles, a romantic CD or DVD, and a new blanket
to snuggle under. Grab a bubbly drink, a couple of chocolate bars with
wrappers that you personalized, and then package it in a beautiful
basket or box. Tada!

Put together a CD of songs that are special to both of you. You’ll
want to include “your” song, if you have one. If you have a recorder and
some musical talent, record a song you wrote! It’s best if you can make
a beautiful cover for the CD case too. I did this for my boyfriend one
year, and he still talks about how incredibly romantic that was for him.
This is a romantic birthday gift men and women love. Trust me. I’ve seen it.
P.S. I love the romantic love quote on the cover. Isn't it awesome?!
If you’re not a song writer, go for poetry. You can either write one yourself or hire a professional poetry writer to compose a meaningful poem. Print this onto a beautiful piece of stationary and give it wrapped with a box of chocolates.
This is one of my favorites. Give your sweetheart a romantic birthday gift that melts his heart over and over again (or her heart… but for the sake of an example,
we’ll stick with him).
What makes you love him most? Do you love his eyes? His sense of humor? His cooking? Type these reasons up, print them and cut them out, then give them a clean hole-punch or two and put some book rings through them. Now it's a book!
Some people give 52 reasons and they use a deck of cards. Cute idea, but frankly that limits you.
Instead, give him enough reasons to match...
All I'm saying is don't limit yourself. There are hundreds of sweet and creative ways you can list your favorite things about him and wrap it up for his birthday.
Sweethearts love personalized presents from each other (but let's get beyond teddy bears).
Give an engraved ring or bracelet. You can also get her a locket with
a photo of the two of you inside - not just a picture of you. That
comes across as either arrogant or creepy.
For men, get a ring or watch engraved for him. You can even get belt buckles engraved!
Just be sure to pick something he would wear... and don't engrave it with letters SO HUGE that he'll never wear it anywhere.
Give 24 cards - one for every hour of the day. Write funny things, sweet things, poems, drawings, whatever you'd like to make this day special.
I really like the idea of giving a date night in one or two of the cards - or even something they can do by themselves like go to the spa or tickets to an event (sports, opera, whatever you think they'd like).
