Don't worry if you're at a loss about what to get your husband for his birthday; there are creative birthday ideas for all price ranges and inclinations. You can make "gift tokens" for your husband to redeem for fun dates, or surprise him with a trip to the stadium and "all-you-can-eat" seats. For an outdoorsy husband, a hot air balloon ride can let him see nature from a whole new point of view. If you're looking for a flirty gift, photos from a boudoir photography session are a present that can be enjoyed for a lifetime.

Homemade "Gift Tokens"

Making gift tokens for your husband is a simple way to create a personalised gift. Purchase attractive blank cards at your local stationery store and write "Gift Token" on the front. Inside, write something for which your husband can "redeem" his certificate. Certificates can be for items as expensive or inexpensive as you want. They can be for luxuries like dinner dates or tickets to the show of his choice. Or they can be for romantic evenings at home that don't cost a thing.

All-You-Can-Eat Stadium Tickets

If your husband is a sports fan, surprise him by telling him you're taking him out for a fancy dinner. Instead, take him to your local stadium for a game and an all-you-can-eat supper. As of 2010, all-you-can-eat tickets and seating sections are available at 19 of the 30 major league baseball stadiums. Also as of 2010, they sell for around £26 a seat and include everything from salads to soda. Alternatively, if you know your husband has been starved for "guy time," buy a few tickets for him and his best friends to have a big sports night out.

Hot Air Balloon Ride

Hot air balloon rides can be pricey, but their scenic views can thrill a husband who loves the outdoors. There are numerous hot air balloon companies around the country; most offer a range of packages based on the number of people who'll be riding. For example, as of 2010 Balloons Over Georgia offers rides over Georgia's Lake Sidney Lanier that range from £211 for a private group of two, to £130 per person for groups of four or more.

Boudoir Photography

For an intimate present your husband can cherish for years, consider presenting him with a photo album of you from a boudoir photography session. Boudoir photography is a style of portraiture aimed creating flattering, pin-up style images that capture you at your most glamorous. A good photographer will want to help you feel confident, not uncomfortable, so photos can be as flirty or demure as you like. Boudoir sessions are available from many traditional wedding and family photographers. Photography session prices vary by location, amenities, prints, studio time and whether you have hair and make-up done on-site by a professional.
