Surprise Birthday Weekend Ideas

A surprise birthday weekend usually involves advanced planning on your part. Confirm her schedule is free before you buy a plane ticket or reserve hotel accommodations. If she is available, then pick your location, schedule things to do or arrange for tours and pack her a bag for a weekend birthday she is sure to remember.

Trip to Anywhere

Pack a bag and let the birthday girl choose the destination at the airport. When you get up to the counter, let her pick a place she wants to go and pay for the tickets. While waiting for the plane, use your phone's Wi-Fi to agree on a hotel and some sightseeing places, so you can hit the ground running once you arrive.

Bed and Breakfast

Whether it is a snow-covered ski chalet or a Victorian beach cottage, a bed and breakfast will give you the privacy and comfort of home, yet allow all distractions to disappear. Choose one that is close to the amenities you would like and offers activities you enjoy. Take along some fine wine to share, gourmet cheeses and crackers to snack on with chocolate and grapes to feed him.


Some cruise lines offer a three-day weekend cruise to a close destination. You and the birthday girl can relax in your room, lounge by the pool or take in a show as you spend quality alone time with each other. Or, you can get dressed up for the captain's formal dinner night, dance to classic tunes or sing along at the piano bar.


Whisk the birthday guy off for a weekend of sports as you take him to his alma mater's football, soccer or baseball game on Saturday, then to a NFL, NBA or MLB game on Sunday. Treat him to an overnight stay between the two locations and buy him a cap or T-shirt as a souvenir to complete the gift.


You can appeal to the child in your birthday girl by taking her to an amusement park or a water park for the weekend. Whether you spend the day riding the roller coaster or zooming down the water slide, the goal is to have her laughing with glee. Make a reservation at a fun restaurant, such as one that rains on you while you eat, to carry the theme into the night.
