Tips for a spouse's birthday  

It's your better-half's birthday and maybe it's a mile marker year, or perhaps this time you just want to make his or her special day stand out - a moment worthy of scrapbooks and fondly recalled memories. You don't necessarily need to pull out all the stops to make it special, but there are some key components to b-day success.

Memory lane
Birthdays are more than just a "I made it!" moment for your husband or wife - they are a time to remember the journey that brought that person to the present day. Scour those photograph books, and dig out pictures and Polaroids for the perfect party supplies. Each photo is bound to make your mate bask in nostalgia, and a few happy tears never hurt anyone. Other souvenirs from years past might also prove to be powerful, such as old cards and crafts your children might have made, or some artifact from your spouse's childhood. You might also want to consider dusting off that VCR and digging out those VHS tapes for an hour or two of old home movies.

Play favorites
You know your spouse's favorite film, food and activity - this is the blueprint for the perfect day. If he or she is the lackadaisical type who enjoys the outdoors, spend the day in an arboretum or a state park, where you two and mother nature can sit and relax. If he or she is the fast-action, adrenaline type, roll the dice at a casino, or visit an amusement park and take the plunge on a wild rollercoaster. If you are not sure what to choose from, come up with a series of options that the birthday boy or girl can pick from!

A birthday is also the opportune time to show how much you care by doing an activity that your husband or wife has always been keen on trying, that you might not want to do. End the night by watching a favorite film, while ordering out for his or her favorite food - it shows an understanding and effort on your part that no gift could ever equal.

Party in the end
Invite your wife's nearest and dearest for a surprise birthday. Make this bash a theme party centered around her. Turn the atmosphere festive and energetic by hanging streamers and curling ribbon of her favorite colors. Mix this with mylar balloons and other personalized party supplies that say her name and how many years passed that she is celebrating. Nothing says personal like a cake with a picture of her on it - the older the picture the better.
