Surprises are the best way to make your partner happy. Don’t be selfish and make him happy because you want the credit; surprise him only to make him glad! Here are 10 ways to do so selflessly:-
- Love letter
Guys are not innately romantic but you could be. Write your boyfriend a love letter that could be in the form of a long poem or prose. Highlight all the things you love about him in the letter and how you adore all the things he does to see you smile. Write about the first time you met, the first touch, the first kiss. Make it very personal. Mail it to him by post and surprise him!
P. S. Make it handwritten and scent it with your perfume.
9. Book him a getaway
Has your boyfriend been working too hard and a long weekend is coming up where he does not have to work? Book a romantic getaway with him to some beautiful and relaxing place. Take care of the whole bill and splurge on him. Book him a body massage, spa, sauna anything the hotel provides. Make all his exhaustion disappear and make him relax and enjoy the weekend. If you cannot make it to the trip, ask his best friend to accompany him. Your goal is to surprise your boyfriend, not cling to him all the time!
- Get him tickets
So your boyfriend’s favourite band is coming to town? Get him concert tickets for it. Is he a diehard fan of some movie franchise? Book seats for the first day, first show and surprise him! Is his favourite team playing in town this weekend? Get him the best seats you can because he simply deserves the best! You could get him tickets with his best buddies too if you don’t particularly like that band, movie or sport so much. You don’t have to be there but you can surprise him with this gesture!
- Sneak a note inside his lunchbox at office/ college
If you are in a live-in relationship and you do happen to pack him lunch, then what better way to surprise him than putting a cute love note in his lunchbox! You could simply write ‘I Love You’ or you could write a small rhyme related to the lunch you packed him
(e. g. I don’t speak much Spanish,
But I can make a good sandwich;
I can’t write good ballad,
But I can make the best salad!)
It would most definitely bring a smile to your man’s face and he would look forward to such sweet notes in future too!
- Visit his office/ college/ home during lunch
If you are not in a live-in relationship, you don’t pack him lunch. Or maybe you work more than he does and don’t have time to make him lunch that he could take to college or office. So one day, when you know he will be absolutely free during lunch time, visit his college or office and surprise him with lunch that you made for him! I have personally done this and the saying, “The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach”, stands totally true! You could make him his favourite dish or you could buy him his top favourite food item from his favourite restaurant and land up at his college/ office. If the weather is pleasant, you could take a picnic blanket and sit in a garden or park to have lunch. Or you could simply sit at his canteen and enjoy the spontaneous date!
- Gift him the latest version
Has your boyfriend recently been too excited about the latest Xbox that is being launched? And he plans to buy it but has been too busy to look into it? Let him out of his misery. Buy the Xbox and start playing it around the time he gets back from work or college. Make his jaw drop when he sees you playing the latest version of the Xbox he has been craving. He will rush to your side and challenge you at the game! And if he is a bookworm and the next book in his favourite series has just released, get it for him! Place it on his side of the bed just as he is about to join you!
- Get him a gift that you know he would really like without any occasion
You and your boyfriend were out last weekend and you saw him admiring an expensive suit or tie or watch or a pair of shoes. He really wanted to get it but decided against it after he saw the price. You tried to convince him then, but in vain. So, go back the next day and get it for him. But be sure that he really loved it because if it is expensive, then he may not like that you got it for him, unless he absolutely loved it! You could use the Treasure Hunt (#1) to give it to him or you could simply leave it somewhere you know he would find it. Simply write ‘For You’ on it and look at his face glow in surprise and happiness when he sees what it is!
- Surprise Birthday Party + Strippers
So every year you throw him a surprise birthday party. But this year, up the level of surprise quite a few notches – surprise him with strippers! To do this, you will have to play it really cool. Obviously you should have Zero insecurity and Zero trust issues with him for this surprise to work. Invite his and your closest friends (of course, now they are all a big group of friends themselves!). As usual, make everyone hide in the drawing room; you personally greet him at the door; instruct everyone to jump out at the pre- decided cue and shout ‘SURPRISE’! Let him feel that that is all to the surprise party. As per the time you have called the strippers (approximately atleast an hour into the party), the strippers arrive at your doorstep and ring the bell. Make your boyfriend open the door and let him be utterly SURPRISED once again the same evening!
- If you know he likes something Kinky, get it
So do you and your boyfriend watch a little kinky porn? Or have you found some on his hard disk? If so, then you could surprise him by getting some kinky item from the market. E. g. handcuffs, blindfold, face mask, silk scarf, riding crop etc. depending on his level of kinkiness (wink!). Then, when you are about to get into action, bring the item out and see the look on his face! It will be priceless, I assure you and he will love it!
- Treasure Hunt
I have personally executed this one, and I guarantee that it will surprise as well as fascinate your boyfriend thoroughly. Bolt your front door from outside and get inside the house through the backdoor (if you don’t have 2 doors, ask a friend or neighbour to lock you in). Leave a note on the outside for your boyfriend to let himself in and leave him the first clue (e. g. the place where we have shared the best memories in the house or the place where I hide my goodies etc). Leave him gifts at every place with the next clue and so on. Let the last clue lead to your hiding place and surprise him with the last and the best gift – YOU!
