Give him an "On the Day You Were Born" birthday gift, which is a bound-book version of the actual New York Times newspaper printed on the day of his birth. He'll have fun reading about all the other things happening around the world on the day he arrived, and the bound cover will ensure it stays in good condition.

As the spouse or significant other of the birthday boy, wrap up some sexy lingerie, such as a full-length bodysuit in stretch lace, or a black lace bustier and a matching g-string. Put them in a black shiny box with a gold satin ribbon. Men love it when their mates go out of their way to be as sexy as possible as a special birthday gift.
