The man who enjoys the outdoors but prefers to take it easy may like to celebrate his birthday with a barbecue in the backyard or at a park.

Favorite Eateries

  • He may enjoy going to his favorite restaurant or sports bar for his birthday. A birthday is also a good excuse to try a new restaurant or go somewhere a bit fancier. Call ahead to book enough room for friends who wish to attend. Ask if they do anything special for birthdays.
