Use your husband’s upcoming birthday as a chance to ignite the fire in your relationship. Instead of going out to dinner, consider staying at home. Send the children to stay with their grandparents or nearby friends for the night so the two of you spend time alone. Men crave good food and physical pleasure, so include these elements when conjuring romantic ways to keep him busy that night and bring the two of you closer together.
Run a hot bubble bath just before your husband arrives home. Light scented candles around the bathtub, the bathroom and rooms he has to pass through on his way to the bathroom. Spread a path of red rose petals to guide him from the home's entrance to the bathroom.
Place a glass of chilled wine at the front door with a personal note inviting him to join you in the tub. Pamper him in the tub by massaging his back to loosen his muscles; play soft music in the background.
Prepare an album of pictures starting from the time you two started dating to more recent ones for you to review together after the bath. The two of you will love the intimacy and spend pleasurable hours walking down memory lane together.
Stick to what your granny told you about the way to a man's heart being through his stomach. Cook your husband’s favorite meal on his birthday to sweep him off his feet; he will appreciate the gesture that you cooked exclusively for him.
Create the appropriate ambiance before he arrives. Spread a bold-colored cloth over the table. Decorate it with scented candles, along with properly placed cutlery and glasses, including wine glasses. Dim the lights in the dining room so only the candles provide illumination. Play soft instrumental music in the background.
Rub your husband's legs and thighs during the meal to arouse him. He will love the gesture and may end up sweeping you off your feet for the night.
Learn about an item your husband wants and buy it for him. Do not ask him straight out, but notice what he craves, such as the latest gadget if he’s into electronics or a golf club he’s really wanted if he’s big on sports, and surprise him with it.
Deliver the gift in a seductive manner. Wear a special outfit you have picked out for the birthday night. Let him enjoy the show of giving the present as much as receiving it.
Compile a number of folded strips of scented paper, each scribbled with a romantic activity for every day of the week, two weeks or even a month. Add the strips in an empty jar and label it “The Jar of Love” or something equally romantic. Each night, pull out a new idea and act upon it the next day. This is a great way of extending his birthday and prolonging the romance even after the birthday is over.
