his best birthday

It was his first b-day after getting married. I ordered for him a special teddy from 'myteddy' website, I orderd a cake in a shape of his initial from the cake shop, I bought him a watch, pen, and wallet, wrapped them and put them on a stand decorated with roses. When he came to home, the living room was filled with balloons and in the center of the table was the cake and candles, on the bed with flower petals it was the stand and the teddy. He loved the teddy very much. Don't forget to dress nicely with makeup and hair, and the most important thing is the smell of you and the smell of the place.

I bought some lingerie from an online sex shop, and we had dinner at his favorite place. Need I say more?

31st b-day

On my hubby's b-day, I baked him a cake and gave him a full-body massage. He just loved it. I followed this up with a night he would never forget.

surprise bday party with freinds

I arranged a surprise b-day party for my husband by decorating an empty house of one of my relative's. I called all his friends, and he came at 12 o'clock midnight and he was very much surprised... because he didn't expect a party in a relative's house.

After this he will Adore you!

I wanted to surprise my hubby and decided to make the most unforgettable birthday party, something different, no hotels or presents but something that would make him feel really happy. So, I bought a pinata, yes a Mexican pinata, invited very distinguished people, and barbecued delicious steak with golden potatoes. I turned up the stereo and invited everybody to dance around the pinata and each guest took a turn at hitting it (the pinata, of course!). Every person in turn had his eyes covered which made the scene even more fun. That night everybody went back home with a huge smile and they are still laughing now. And my husband always approves my crazy ideas since he laughed until his stomach hurt! Try it! You will really enjoy it!

i gave him a surprise

It was my hubby's birthday on 17th of November. I was puzzled as to what I should give him. I went to a courier and sent a heart-shaped yummy red cake with a bunch of red roses. When he got them at his office, he was very surprised and texted me thank you sweetheart. His colleagues ate up the whole cake, and he was happy.

What I'm going to do

I booked a one-night stay at a hotel. It's a gorgeous place. After the sleepover at the place, I'm taking him for a big, amazing breakfast. Then, we're going to the zoo. He loves loves animals. Then, the aquarium, followed by lunch on a boat cruise. When we get home he will find a big prezzie waiting in the living room and another more intimate one in the bedroom. LOL.
