  1. hey this is what my husband did for me a couple of years ago. (pretty elaborate but fun). he did a treasure hunt type of thing at home with 4 clues and had the gift at the end of the 4th clue :). easy clues ok? ๐Ÿ™‚ The other thing that i did was to book us into a resort for a weekend. Surprise party etc etc are also decent options.

      1. ya was a lot of fun.and depending on how romantic/sexxxxxy/wild you want to be, you can get a little daring with these gifts ๐Ÿ˜‰

      1. Thats so cuute!! ๐Ÿ˜€ I can’t book any resort thing for us..he hates going away from home anywhere….I mean sometimes I feel we both are so similar in somethings.. ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜

      1. ๐Ÿ™‚ thanks..its lot of fun to do something like this. ..and with my husband shirts and all I cant surprise him with becos he is quite particular abt it so mujhe khud problem hoga returning it and all

    ans it also depends on ur hubbyyy…my hubby is all into fancy pens…….so i got one ridiculously expensive one for him…waise the best wud be u cooking a wonderful dinner for him…make it spcial with candles and fancy crockery and stuff…log aise hi nahi bolte the way toa man’s heart us his staomach…or u can bake a cake for him..instead of buying one..i thnk guys appreciate these thngs more than expensive gifts…i have learnt it sadly after spending like crazy.. ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜

  3. he he he…this is soo cuute koshen Bee!! :puchhi:

    Ok….like for me..first b’day I just gave some stupid hand puppets, coz I came to know about his b’day that day only..and he proposed me that day too..:tongur: ….for second b’day I ended up giving a CK watch and a CK perfume and third time I gave him a nice polo jacket..something like this in white and blue:

    ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜›

      1. but isn’t it the most obvious gift Nupuriiii… expecting that!!
        mein hoti toh kuch ulta bhalta hi deti…opposite to usual expectation ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜›

          1. arre….aise toh khud hi le aate hai and khush ho jaate hai….mein bhi aaj khudi lekar aayi hoon what I like ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜› :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

            1. khud laana n gift milna are 2 very diffrrntttt things…. :tongue: :tongue: :tongue: mujhe to giftsss mil jaayein toh basss…… :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

  4. Can book a spa package for both of you or booking a resort/Neemrana fort is also good idea. go out for dinner in like Parikrama ballon ride is also there .

  5. I am not that good with gifts either Bee. I just planned hill station par holiday with him since he loves travelling.
    But agar mera husband ban jayega….like years of being together….I wud definitely make a full hand-made scrapbook with pics of us from beginning to end…like a journey depicted with pics and special quotes or punch lines said to each other. I feel virtual video se achcha hai to make such scrap book.
    I also mentioned earlier here somewhere….that I would love to have a professional photoshoot of both of us capturing best moments together to frame for life. Its a total different experience.

    1. Even I want to do that Jinal..we don’t have much pics of ours together….coz we both had such tough time meeting each other only..we never bothered to click I want to click as many pics of ours together as possible….I m gonna note down this particular thing for sure..will do it soon!!! :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

      1. K for me it is :secret2: something strange ๐Ÿ˜ฎ my hubby is camera shy and i m camera freak…photees photees photees fr me n he to gayab wen anybody wnts to click him :quiet: :quiet: :quiet: :quiet: men aapna hi collage bana k de dungi :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot:

      1. yes Kimi….you both shud really get it done. I was browsing through a frnds profile and saw her photoshoot with her fiancee. Like so natural pics like hugging each other, relaxing on the park bench, praying together in church, simply looking at each other and smiling……phwew!! I decided that time…I too need such moments captured ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

        Rati….you shud also do a photo shoot with Sanjeev jee…..woh bechare aapki pics lekar hi khush ho jaate hai. Ab unko bhi mauka do… :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

  6. Bee…mere advice le tho….you are the most precious gift that your husband could get…..apne upar ek red ribbon bandh de and happy birthday bol de….. O:) O:) O:) O:) O:) O:) practically, as a rule, i never cook on my husband’s birthday…we eat outside. I usually buy him a louis phillipe thing and he is happy……but one great idea i have…buy a gold chain……haappy budday ke din ke baad…u can keep wear it yourself :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

      1. Kimi…….err…..accha idea nahin hai kya…..matlab gold chain men ke neck mein bahut acchi lagti hai….see…usually, I don;t notice guys that much…but if a guy has gold chain around his neck…I kind of take notice…what kind of chain he is wearing and whether it is 22 carat or 24 carat…. O:) O:) O:) O:) O:) O:) O:)

        1. ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜† Only you can notice all these things in a guy!!! :tongue: :tongue: :tongue: :tongue: :tongue: :tongue: :tongue: :tongue: :tongue: :tongue: :tongue: :tongue: :tongue: :tongue: :tongue: :tongue: :tongue:

  8. you can bake a special cake for him and make some special food and candle light dinner also if your hubby into sports try gifting his favorite sport equipment like a racket but from an international expensive brand..apart from this you can even gift him pen/ iphone/kindle/perfume/wallet/cuflings etc

  9. pls. pls…………whenever u try to make a cake for your mr perfect in first time….pls. also order to another one separately…………. :shame: :shame: :shame: :shame: :shame:

  10. He is a gadget freak na Beeni? Get him a cake in the shape of an Ipod/ipad etc… and if you want a very unconventional gift, arrange a boys night out with his friends… it need not be on his b’day… but you can hand him the invitation on that day…. and since he loves photography, you guys can plan a photowalk (whether permitting) ending in a restaurant (which you have already reserved and have the cake ready!) for a cozy meal… a couple’s massage is a good idea too (you reap the benefit as well)

  11. Anks…..great ideas…….. :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo: “reap the benefit” matlab :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2:

      1. aying…anks….now your mind is in the gutter….kya…. :ghost2: :ghost2: :ghost2: :ghost2: :ghost2: :ghost2: :ghost2: red se kyon ho gaya ribbon pink :headbang: :headbang: :headbang: :headbang: :headbang: :headbang: :headbang: :spank: :spank: :spank: :spank:

        1. Nahi nahi… festival season coming up in US na… all red ribbon would be sold out for xmas gipht… beeni will need 10-12 feet to giftwrap herself… pink chalega :specs:

  12. A jacket would be a nice gift, specially in this weather. Else, sunglasses are always needed. If your budget is higher, any gadget or gadget accessory or a nice branded perfume.

    Waise, jomol’s idea isn’t bad…..provided it’s just the two of you at home :toothygrin:

  13. Zoo jaao, monkey dekho, giraffe dekho, chale aao O:)

    Give him a bottle of whiskey, 2 bottle soda, some munchies, and leave him alone in home for two days with his TV, Stereo and guitar. Go to your parents house O:)

    1. ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ :jaiho: :jaiho: :jaiho: :jaiho: :jaiho: :jaiho: :jaiho: :jaiho: :jaiho: :jaiho: :jaiho: :jaiho: :jaiho: Ratiiii… ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜›

    2. ah if only my husband heard this..i have an equally better idea..if we do this for our husbands maybe the husbands can do this for us – give us their credit card for shopping with unlimited credit ofcourse, book us into a spa, perhaps have a nice meal ready by the end of the day and dont ask for ‘you-know-what’ :whistle:

      1. he he he eh eh eh eh!! AWESSOMEEEEEEEE Idea Arunaaaa!! :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

  14. Depending on what your husband’s interests are, look for connoisseur products, books/magazines, accessories in that category.
    for example if he loves games, say badminton, check for specialised rackets, some funky shuttles or a subscription to a local game group. If he is into photography, well u have lotsa use for ur money – cameras, camera gear, bags, magazines, props…
    i havent read all the ideas above – so apologies if repetitive, just telling what popped at the top of my head ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. Hm…I like giving multiple little gifts. :)) I think you could plan a nice little trip to the zoo or the movies (Iseenodifference) and then go to a nice little restaurant for dinner.
    You could also give him a little “personal coupon booklet” with coupons for little things like massages,small chores,a hug,a kiss,a five course home made dinner,etc. :teddy: :teeth :specs:
    And judging by some of the preceding comments,he seems to be a gizmo lover so you could get him something of that nature. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. i totally agree with prags…multiple little gifts.. and yea that ghar ka khana :))
      i try to make hand made stuffs for my bf on such special,scrapbooks etc( they add that personalised touch you wont get in archies ) :))

  16. OMGG- So many cute ideas…. but 1st let me have a good laugh……
    :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2:
    I’m really laughing so hard

  17. On a serious note- thanks so much everyone….
    We are waise bhi goping shopping for him so that – check
    Will try :
    1) booking a SPA treatment
    2) 1 small Gift on ever day of that week ๐Ÿ˜‰
    3) dinner and outing (baking a cake will be a risk- but I can try doing that ;))
    4) We have Nintendo Wii so I’ll get some racing games for him ๐Ÿ˜€
    5) then later probably Jomol wala ribbon idea :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2:

    Watches and other jewellery he hates so cant give that :headbang: Jacket also he has a few

    but I’m book marking this page – thanks everyone again! :rose: :rose: :rose: :rose: :rose: :rose: :rose:

  18. Sanjeev ji- aap wala idea bhi sahi hain but India ki ticket kataane mein uska bohot kharcha ho jaayega…. :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2:

    I will tweak your idea a bit,….. the wife should check into a resort with full benefits – alone – uski bhi aish and hubby ki bhi hahhahahaha

  19. be so much happend ehre in your absence. Jomol’d idea was the fabbest.. you just HAVE to do it. :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: You may share piccys if you want :snicker: :snicker: :snicker: :snicker:

    1. OMGG Sachi Rati do- padhke I was laughing so hard….

      and Piccys :yikes: :yikes: :yikes: :yikes: :yikes:

      you know, I fell asleep on the couch and dreamed that 2 elephants are smooshing me ๐Ÿ™

  20. Donno whether this has been suggested..
    Why dont you get your hubby a kindle fire? I saw somewhere that he already loves kindle keyboard i think, am not sure) .. So I think he would like a kindle fire too??
    Perhaps you can do a treasure hunt as aruna has suggested in the first comment ๐Ÿ™‚ Love the idea aruna.. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. thanks Gayathri. I was telling my husband that I suggested the treasure hunt idea that he had done and he had even forgotten he had done that for me.. :lol2:

      btw, another idea (I bet the bday must be over and done with) is to have a tshirt or a quilt or something with fotos/cartoons of important occasions from your life- marriage, first time dinner can give this gift along with something incase this is too simple ๐Ÿ™‚

  21. Hey Rati,

    You can wrap yourself in a Box with gift wrapping and tell someone to present this box to your hubby…this is fun i have tried this at home ๐Ÿ˜› :joker:
    Ma friend wrapped in a box and kept it in the living room….i made hole in the box to Breathe…

  22. most men love gastronomic challenges so booking his favourite restaurant or making his fav food plus sweet dish is great along with a gift, most men love electronics- a new mobile, gaming stuff…may be ask him what he wants, take him to a store where he likes to browse, ask him to point at something he’s always wanted :specs:
