There are obviously lots of ways for you to surprise your boyfriend, but if you’re reading this page then you must be lacking in inspiration at least a little bit. Surprising somebody is one of the best gifts you can give them to be honest, because it shows them that you put thought and effort into creating an “event” for them that they didn’t expect.
In fact surprising your boyfriend doesn’t need to be about big gestures – sometimes it’s just a case of calling him at work and telling him that you love him, without expecting anything in return. The best surprises are the ones which are most selfless.
I know that I’ve mentioned this a few times in different articles but men are simple creatures, so if you really want to surprise your boyfriend then you can perform a striptease for him. This will be even more effective if you’re a little on the shy side because it will show him you’re opening up to him both emotionally and psychologically by doing this. Some women are put off by the idea of doing this because it’s seen as being sleazy but it definitely doesn’t need to be – think of it as a burlesque show rather than a strip club for example.
When people think of a surprise party they usually imagine it as being the same as in the movies – everyone standing in a dark room waiting to shout “Surprise!” but that’s all been done before. Why not gather up some pictures from his family and friends of when he was younger and put together a slideshow cataloging his life so far? It’ll put a smile on everyone’s face and you get to keep the files you created forever.
Okay I know that the stereotypical role of the man is to bring his beautiful girlfriend her breakfast in bed, but guys have feelings too (yes really), so making him breakfast now and then as a surprise will put you in his good books. Every guy has a favorite breakfast of one kind or another so put on your Sherlock Holmes hat and find out more – you might even be surprised when you find out what his favorite breakfast is. What’s mine? I’m a sucker for French toast, strawberry jam and freshly brewed coffee! Basically the way to a guy’s heart is through his stomach – never forget that.
If your boyfriend is a fan of reading the car section or sports page of a particular newspaper or magazine you could always put a classified ad on the page with a cute message from you to him. Okay there’s a slim chance that he’ll miss the ad you placed but if he does you can “gently remind him” to check the page again.
Even if you’re anything but an expert masseuse your boyfriend will love you forever for offering him a back or shoulder massage. If your boyfriend has an active job he’ll appreciate a massage and even if your guy works at a desk all day he’ll still have a lot of tension in his shoulders when he comes home. All you need is some scented massage oils, some candles, mood lighting and to learn the basics of massage from some YouTube videos.
The above are just some of my personal favorite suggestions for how to surprise your boyfriend, but you can only do what you’re comfortable with, or what you think he’ll enjoy the most. That’s why I’ll only ever make suggestions for this stuff ladies – in the end the final choice of how you actually go about surprising your boyfriend will be entirely up to you.
