@shues138:  Stay in and make him dinner! My FI doesn’t care for celebrating his birthday either but I still go out of my way to make it special, whether he likes it or not. Why not try breakfast in bed? Guys may not like celebrating their birthdays but they love breakfast in bed.

ETA: Another suggestion would be a movie night at home.

I would do something special but keep it low key. How about making him a special dinner or breakfast like the PP said? After, you can watch a favorite movie of his. Best of luck!

take out food he likes, a movie he wants to see, some romance on the couch…sounds like a good birthday to me!

My SO is the same way.  His birthday was yesterday and all he wanted to do was sit on the couch all day and watch football.  Which I gave in to, but I did give him a few presents & invited my parents over for pizza and cupcakes.  ((He didn’t want his parents to come over.))

Make him a nice dinner and provide some sweet, sweet lovin’. What else could he want? 😉

My SO feels the same way about his birthday. He just doesn’t really care.

So I bought him a couple useful gifts, baked his favorite cake and brought over his favorite beer, hid little birthday notes around his house, and took him to dinner.

He enjoyed all of it and didn’t think it was too over the top. Though I know he would have been fine with much less.

They can be such stick in the muds! But I’m sure whatever you end up doing, he’ll feel special!
