If you’re looking for a creative way to celebrate your husband’s 41st birthday, we have just what the doctor ordered. These life-affirming and memorable ideas will show him how much you care, and hopefully, make it one of the best birthdays ever!
The next step is to create a list of all your partner’s favourite things in order to find the perfect gift idea. You might want to think about what he loves doing in his spare time, which sports teams he likes, or where he likes to go on vacation.
There are many things that we can do on our companion’s birthday and there are many ways that we can make them feel special.
41st Birthday Ideas For Him
1. Don’t just make the party about you.
Be a team player and make his birthday party about him and his friends. A group of college friends could play a game of white elephant to see who could take home the best present. Or if they enjoy drinking, set up a wet bar stocked with fun drinks he hasn’t tried before.
2. A “what I love about you” note
Even though today may not be the right time to discuss that hot topic, talk to your partner on the day of his 41st birthday anyway and let him know your feelings. Write down all the things that you love about him.
3. Plan a surprise party
If you can’t talk to your husband the day of his 41st birthday, go ahead and plan a surprise party for him anyway. Make sure that his friends know and have time to prepare themselves for it. Don’t forget to invite your friends, too!
4. Have a dress-up party
If your husband enjoys dressing up, why not have a theme party? Be creative and find out what he likes. If he loves sports, have an ice hockey-themed party. If it’s his office, plan a business meeting theme party.
5. A spa and/or massage day for him
Spend the day together as a couple in one of his favourite places. Why not pamper each other at the spa or let him schedule you an appointment at the local massage parlour?
6. Make him a special breakfast
Plan his birthday morning to be extra special by making him breakfast. If it’s his office, make sure that you bring in doughnuts and coffee. If he enjoys cooking, make him his favourite breakfast food.
7. Take a ride on the wild side
Ride a roller coaster or go visit a haunted house together. Try something he’s never tried before and have fun being scared of each other!
8. Go wild for wildlife
Go to a zoo, aquarium or nature preserve for some exotic animal companionship. If you don’t know where the closest one is, then ask his friends.
9. Make him a shoulder to cry on
If your husband likes to be able to talk about how he feels and who to, then buy him a pillow as a token of your appreciation. Or take him out with you while you get some shopping done at the mall and let him drop by the toy store if he wants.
10. Write a review of your life
Write down all the things that you love about your partner on a piece of paper and give it to him. He will treasure this special gift. Don’t forget to include this article in between the pages of his present!
11. Take some time off work
If it’s his job that puts a damper on your relationship, then take him out for a day where he doesn’t have to think about work. Work can be stressful and exhausting, so why not take him out for some fun?
12. Make his car smell like you
Buy him a couple of scented toys or wipes and make his car smell like you. If it’s his car, you could go to a car wash and get the seats cleaned.
13. Surprise him with a hot meal at home
Make your husband something he’s not used to eating or cooking him something new. Ask the family if they can help, too.
14. Surprise him with a romantic staycation
Make reservations at a motel or bed and breakfast for the night. Maybe there is a spa nearby, too? If you have time for shopping, take him to the mall.
15. Make his day special by arranging a surprise party for his friends
If he’s into dressing up, then have his coworkers make him their best outfit and do some hair and makeup. If it’s an office party, let his buddies put together some great gadgets to show off!
16. Surprise him with a photo shoot in the park
Spend some quality time with your husband at the local park or nature preserve. Take some pictures and then take them to him as a gift.
17. Make his night special by arranging an early night at home
If he has worked the day after his birthday, then arrange an early night at home together so he can rest while you prepare dinner and get the house ready for company.
18. Plan a romantic surprise dinner date
Plan a mini vacation for your husband so that he won’t have to think about work or other things on the weekend of his 41st birthday. Go out for a good Italian meal as a special treat for him!
19. Cook him his favourite meal
If he’s like most men, then you know that he really likes food. Plan a great dinner for him and get the whole family to help and eat with you.
20. Go out with the guys
Plan a fun-filled day for the guys so that your husband won’t be bored on his birthday. You can have them surprise him at home or take him out on their own time to hang out and shoot some hoops or play some football on the weekends. Even guys like to spend time with other people from time to time!
21. Give him a special experience
If your husband enjoys travelling, then you can plan something really special for him to do. Go on a trip together or arrange a day trip with his friends.
22. Give him the gift of fun and games
Give your husband some relaxation and fun with some season passes to an amusement park or some tickets to go zip-lining!
23. Give him a “mystery” gift
This is something that’s sure to create a lot of excitement and mystery. Make up a story to go along with the present and stick with it! Give him an empty box, a small bag of coins or something else he hasn’t seen before on his birthday. Let him know who you are and then wait for him to open it!
24. Surprise your husband by bringing together another couple
If your husband is single, invite another couple over for dinner at his house so that he won’t be bored by being alone on his birthday. If you have time, invite them both over and make some dessert treats together!
25. Give him a gift card to a restaurant of his choice
This is a great idea if you and your husband like to go out for dinner together. If he would rather stay home and eat, then give him $100 to spend at the restaurant in which he loves to eat!
26. Get the family involved
Invite the whole family to join you for dinner on his birthday or do something else fun for them. Make this fun birthday extra special by having some of your own kids come over so that they can spend time with their dad on his special day.
27. Do something he doesn’t normally do
If you and your husband don’t normally participate in something, then get some friends together and arrange something a little different.
28. Surprise him by getting naked
Give your husband a gift that’s sure to make him weak in the knees. Decorate your bedroom and give him a sexy surprise in the form of some lingerie or “sexy face paints!” If it’s his birthday, then you should have both of you fully dressed at first since this is intended to be a sexy surprise for him!
29. Do something without him
If you and your husband are busy or out of town, then fill his shoes and get your boyfriend to have his own fun. You can even have him surprise you both at home when you get home!
30. Give him a personalized gift
Have a friend make a beautiful silk scarf or another fabric item that you can use as a backdrop to let the words of your choice come through. If he loves photography, then give him an album with photographs of himself taken by someone close to him. Also, consider giving him some art where you’re featured in the work!
31. Have a game night with the whole family
Invite everyone over for dinner, drinks and fun. This is something that’s sure to make this special birthday extra memorable!
32. Surprise him with some cuddly toys
Whether it’s a cute stuffed animal, teddy bear or even a pink pillow, surprise your husband with a present that he’ll find very cuddly when he opens it!
33. Take him to the zoo
Maybe it’s his first time at the zoo or maybe you’ve been there so many times together and wanted to take him and hide out in some place he doesn’t normally visit. Either way, this will be an experience for them both!
34. Buy him some special care products
Buy some new hair care products or pamper him with a nice body scrub and he’ll love you for it! This can be a great surprise to get him ready for the night out that you have planned next!
35. Give your husband the gift of music
Give your husband the chance to learn about making music, listening to it or even playing an instrument. He’ll have lots of fun showing off his new skills on his birthday!
