Ask his close friends what hobby your man has been up to lately or for help getting an idea of what he could be interested in. That is the solution for really amazing your guy on his very special day.

Gather greetings from family and friends by getting sentimental

Participants may also be asked in advance to jot down their greetings. You must prepare a scrapbook yourself pasting therein greetings along with pictures of the past life of the celebrant, his/her favorite quotes and other interesting material of that type which must be on the favorite list of the celebrant.

Present the man in your life with a new gadget

Is your man tech-savvy? Consider giving him the latest gadget around or any gadget he is interested in. That, of course, depends on your budget. A new game console, a new cellphone or an MP3 player, is what you can give him. You should be familiar with what he prefers the most.

It is quite easy to please. On the other hand they tend to be quite nonchalant about the presents you give them. You need to stay away from the common gifts and think of the more unique, interesting, and memorable presents.

Quote: Jewish Proverb

I still vividly remember how I pestered my dad for my first computer when I was just 13, bluffing that all my classmates have one. It was just a mindless desire. He finally bought me one with his savings and left to the town where he was working; the rest of us were in the city; he used to visit us once in a week.

After buying it, I just played a couple of games and didn’t know what to do with it. I wept in my mother’s arms heavily, blaming myself that I have wasted dad’s hard earned money for nothing. She just brushed my hair and said, "It’s ok, you will learn gradually, even in this playing will you learn some computer; nothing goes wasted. If you have this sense of seriousness that you shouldn’t waste dad’s money, then you will make good use of it".

This day I’m a game programmer, often called a geek with exuberant interest in computers; all this is only because of her courageous words.

Thank you அம்மா! Wish you a very happy birthday, dear mom 🙂

P.S.: I sneaked this candid photo when my nephew (her grandson) Skanda was playing with my mom 😉
