You’re so sweet to try to make it so special for him! My husband had never been to a really nice steakhouse before, and he loves steaks. So I took him to one of the best steakhouses around here one birthday. It was fun getting dressed up and pampering him for the night.

I also gathered a group of friends to go see the horse races on a different birthday. 

Another birthday we grilled out and made his favorites (again, steak). 

None of my ideas are really milestone-y, but I hope they jog some other thoughts for you!

Look on groupon for activity ideas!

For my city groupon always has little “dessert tours” where you travel to different bakeries for tastings, or tours around the italian markets. 
Are there any festivals/fairs taking place that day? Does he like creepy/ghost tours? What about a massage? Would he like racing a luxury car? How about a brewery tour or beer tasting? 

Those are just some ideas for you. Let me know if you want more!

Just throw him in the car for a weekend getaway somewhere. Beach, mountains, camping? Pack a bag for him and don’t tell him where your going until the last possible minute! I’m all about adventure and travel for milestone birthdays. I turned 30 in February and I wanted to be anywhere but home. Booked a cheap last minute ticket to Cozumel for a few days and that’s where my fiancé proposed. Good luck – I’m sure anything you do for him will be great!

I’m interested to hear ideas here too.  My husband turns 30 in July and I’m set on having a surprise party — but I have NO IDEA what to do for it haha.

30 gifts! I did this for my partner and made a few of the last ones really special things. He’s so hard to buy for and wouldn’t like a party. I started off with small bits like deodorant etc. Then moved to personalised bits like a mug, notebook etc. Then a few special thing he likes hobby wise. It took some tine, o labled every thing so it was in order.

but he really loved it, he said it was the best birthday ever!

Does he like local beers? My SO has thrown me some of the best birthdays by booking a place to stay and driving me arround to local breweries/distilleries to try different things. It is awesome! We have found some beers and liquors that we hadn’t tried before that we fell in love with! I’ve really enjoyed them.

Darling Husband isn’t a fan of parties so I booked a holiday for us both as a surprise…it was just 4 days away to Portugal (from UK) which he really enjoyed.

We were on vacation around my husbands 30th birthday.. I hired a private chef to cook for us at our rental house. For my 30th, we’re going to Europe. 

Our birthday ‘surprises’ to each other are always food or travel related! Can you plan a night away, maybe a stay-cation in a nice hotel?

I threw a surprise Goodbye to your Roaring Twenties party. It was a blast, but as you said it might be hard to do a party. Maybe 30 things he likes, and make it an epic day? (Brunch, beer, biking, books, etc)

torranceshipman:  Oh I have LOTS of ideas! 😀 I threw my Fiance the biggest 30th bash last year and he loved it.

First off, if you’re going to do a surprise party, make sure you have a cover plan: I planned a fake birthday dinner for the week after his surprise party, very officially, with Facebook invites and everything. All his friends knew about it, so they publicly reacted to it as though it was his real party.

I also had mini ‘surprises’ in the lead-up, so even if he’d gotten suspicious, there was no way he’d expect more than one surprise.

Finally, the actual partying itself: I booked a beautiful hotel room for us for dinner and our stay, which he loved. Then I took him to the venue (the bar where we first met – it’s a really gorgeous little place, which is meaningful to him of course) with two of our closest friends (again, so he wouldn’t get suspicious). We had food he likes there, drinks, music. I made him a really funny bumbag ‘survival kit’ filled with a water bottle, his favourite sweets, etc.

Oh and I also made him an ‘advent’ calendar in the lead up to his birthday, with a little surprise in a mini envelope for each day leading up to it. The final envelope was in the bumbag, and told him all about the party. I also had a poster made for him with his favourite song lyrics written on the front, and all his friends’ signatures on the back (along with those from his friends abroad, which I’d gotten in advance!)

All in all a really good night!
