When your husband's birthday is coming up, you may be at a loss for special birthday gifts. To get a meaningful and thoughtful gift, think both of his interests as well as timeless gifts that he can treasure. Consider getting him tickets to a concert, making a scrapbook of your time together or personalising a special gift.

Throw Him a Surprise Party

Throw your husband a surprise party for his next birthday. This is a great way to give him a special day with all of his friends and family. Start with his friends, contacting them and asking them to get the word out about his party, keeping it a surprise. Contact his family and invite some of his coworkers that you know he enjoys spending time with. It doesn't have to be a big soirée; a small get-together at your home with good food and conversation makes for a fun party.

Give Him a "Husband Day"

Give your husband a "husband day" by letting him do whatever he wants for his birthday. This is his day off, so no working at his job or around the house. Call in to his job if his birthday falls on a workday and let him plan the day. Let him choose his meals, movies he wants to watch, places he wants to go or sports games he wants to see. Make your husband the centre of attention for his birthday.

Hobbies and Interests

Use your husband's hobbies and interests as a starting block for a great birthday gift. Buy him tickets for his favourite sports team or concert he has been wanting to see, or buy several CDs or DVDs he likes. If he has a hobby, get him gifts that correspond to that hobby, such as musical instruments or a gift token to a hobby shop. If your husband likes to spend time working on his car, get him a tool box or set of socket wrenches.

Gadgets and Electronics

Many men love gadgets and electronics, which make them the perfect birthday gifts. There is a big price range for these types of gifts, but they tend to get expensive. Some good choices are a new mobile phone, GPS navigation system, car stereo, MP3 player, laptop, digital camera or television. For the more expensive electronics, get together with members of your family to go in for a big gift you know he will love.


Give your husband a thoughtful and meaningful birthday gift like a scrapbook or photo album. Check your local craft store for supplies that may include scrapbook sheets and templates, buttons, embellishments, paper cutters, stickers or photo albums. Print out photos of you and your husband together throughout your marriage, as well as photos of your kids, pets and family photos. Include some of his own personal photos as well, such as pictures of his friends or of him on a fishing or golfing trip.

Personalised Gifts

Personalised gifts come in a variety of types of items, from plaques to coffee mugs to monogrammed towels. Think first of what he might want, need or like to use, such as a pen set for his desk at work or a nice photo frame with a photo of the two of you together. Decide what type of message or monogram you want on the gift, such as his name, your wedding date or a love note.
