Wow, that’s nice of you. How about the element of surprise? On October 14, (have his and your bags already packed and hidden) just take him to the airport and away you go!

@happyface:  This. I did this for my SO’s birthday although we were within driving distance. I had him wear a blind-fold, packed him in the car, then took it off when we got to the race-track and explained to him that he was goin’ for a ride in the race car 😉 He LOVED it!

I vote you leave it a total surprise until it’s time to get on the plane! Only because he’ll hear overhead announcements and such. “Now boarding flight 3357 to Las Vegas!” etc. 

I hope you guys have fun! I LOVE Vegas! It’s my favorite place in the US to go (as of lately anyway.)

That is so cool! I like the idea of having everything packed and surprising him at the airport.

@Cdoonan:   And we live an hour away from the airport, so I couldn’t keep him blindfolded for that long.

I did 😉 He kept that thing on for an hour and a half haha! But I see how you want to give him something on his birthday.

What if you bought him something special for the trip, and tell him that there’s more to come? Like a disposable camera? even if you don’t use it, it can be symbolic. Or a photo album.

Is there anything he doesn’t own that he would want/need for the trip? Like some sort of outfit to wear to a casino/wherever you’re taking him? Wrap it up and give it to him on his birthday. When he opens it and says “where am I supposed to wear this?” you say “Vegas!” and give him the plane tickets.

@Omgbunnies:  Thats how my Fiance proposed. He didn’t blindfold me, but he put me in the car and told me we were going on a “field trip”, which I assumed meant going somewhere like the grocery store (thats what our usual field trips are). I didn’t figure out we were going to a hotel until an hour later when we were there.

Maybe you can take him to dinner and hand him a handful of poker chips and say We’re going to Vegas Baby!
