Ladies, there is no need to wait until your anniversary or his birthday to show that special guy in your life that you really care. Planning a date for a boyfriend might feel like a difficult thing to pull off, but worry not! Word on the street says that our boys love to be surprised with all that lovey-dovey stuff, just as much as we do! Follow our simple guide on surprise ideas for boyfriends to master the art of creating that perfect lazy day in or romantic night out.
Flowers Aren’t Just For Girls
We get it… sending a guy a bouquet of flowers doesn’t exactly scream ‘masculinity’. Lucky for you, Twenty Degrees helps you think outside the box, with easy care and everlasting of dry flowers that any dude wouldn’t mind proudly displaying on his office desk or perhaps next to his XBOX at home. These vibrant arrangements add a lil touch of life to his surroundings without the heavy scent of a floral arrangement. Isn’t it perfect? Bonus: these dry flowers can lasts about a year or two, so you can be reminded whenever he looks at the thoughtful gift that you got him.
Date Night Just Got an Upgrade
The usual dinner and a movie can start to grow stale after a while. Looking for a way to spice things up? Get outside! After all, what guy can resist a chance to show off his athleticism? Incorporate these fun date ideas to really get you moving! This next outdoor date idea appeals to the little boy inside every man. Paintball is a classic way to give him a chance to showcase all of those Call of Duty skills! What you’ll need: paintball guns, paintballs, and protective gear and clothing. Keep in mind; this date is going to get you dirty, so dress accordingly, with safety in mind. Grab your man, and don’t tell him where you are going. Drive to the local paintball course, and get ready for an awesome time! After you’ve both been worn out, head to his favorite burger place and refuel.
Spend a Lazy Day In
Sure, night time is when most of the exciting things happen. But what about a cozy Saturday spent inside? For this date, you will need to release your inner child. Bonus points if you stay in your pajamas. Let your guy show off his building skills with a blanket fort! Pintrest has some really great inspiration! We also recommend using the living room for this, because this date includes a ton of movie watching. From inside of your fort of course.
- Get creative. Drag out the coat rack, scour the garage for clamps and last Christmas’s light strands.
- Grab every blanket, pillow, and sheet you own. Use the lighter materials for the top and the heavier ones for your ‘walls’.
- Make a comfy floor. The more blankets you add, the softer it is. Bonus points if you can add a fluffy rug or two.
- The fun part: decorating. Toss in all of those couch cushions and pillows and string up some lights. Add battery-powered candles (no flames, that’s a fire hazard!)
- Grab some snacks and power up some movies.
- Cuddle time has now begun. Keep this up all weekend long and let your imagination take over!
Give Him a Gift He’ll Love
Surprising your boyfriend isn’t that hard to do. You just have to be able to keep a secret. Subscription boxes aren’t just for beauty products anymore. There are now many options tailored just for him. For this thoughtful idea, you just need his name and his address. To keep it extra secret, use a payment method he won’t see the receipts for.
What Matters is Showing You Care
Ultimately, what matters the most is showing the man in your life how much you truly care. We do this every day in small ways and they really add up in the long run. However, we are always left with feeling of wishing we could do more! So whether it’s flowers or a night out bar hopping, or planning his annual Super Bowl Party for him…there are loads of options out there if you think creatively.
