When you've been married awhile, you need to keep things fresh -- the same old ways of saying "Happy Birthday" just won't do. You want your husband to feel loved and appreciated on his special day so celebrate in a creative way. You don't have to be an artist, musician or poet to do so; simply making little tweaks on ordinary birthday greetings will let your spouse know you care for him.

Cards and Messages
While cards are a traditional way of sending birthday greetings, let's face it: store-bought ones just aren't very creative. Make your own card and enclose a special message. You can hand-draw a card or use a computer program to design a professional-looking one. Write your own message inside -- don't use a standard card's sentiments. Mention something personal that has meaning to the two of you so that the card could only be from a beloved wife. Alternately, send a happy birthday message to the classifieds of your local newspaper or have a local deejay announce his birthday during his commute to work.
Cooking is another creative way to say "Happy Birthday," especially if your husband is a gourmet, food aficionado or just appreciates homemade meals. Make his favourite dish or create a new one just for him. If you're adept at making cakes or especially ambitious in the kitchen, bake him a birthday cake and put a special message on it in icing. If your husband also likes to cook, this may be an activity that the two of you can share on his birthday.
Written sentiments don't have to stop at birthday cards -- there are many other ways to say "Happy Birthday" to your hubby. Try writing a poem for him, the lyrics to a song or even a brief essay. Include all of the reasons why you love him, how special he is to you, and how glad and grateful you are that he was born -- and chose to share his life with you.
Sometimes, the best way to say "Happy Birthday" to your husband is to show him how much you want to celebrate. Kick things up a notch on his birthday by serving him dinner in bed wearing a French maid's costume or naughty lingerie. Role-play, try out some toys (such as blindfolds or massage oils), and maybe even dress up a little -- anything to make the occasion more exciting and spicy. You could also rent his favourite sexy movie then dress up as the heroine.
