Birthdays are the time for having fun and spending time with your loved ones – so booking a birthday trip is a great way to celebrate with your husband. Below, we've rounded up some top tips that you should follow if you want to make this year's trip extra special.
Get the right destination
If you’re planning a birthday trip for your husband, then the first thing to think about is the destination. Perhaps you could spend a weekend in the city where you first met, or maybe you could snuggle up for a romantic evening in the countryside? The good news is you’ll be spoilt for choice if you’re staying in the UK – there’s an adventure around every corner.
Choose a comfortable hotel
Now that you’ve decided on the destination of your birthday surprise, start your search for comfortable accommodation on the Toprooms website. There, you’ll be able to sift through the best bed and breakfasts and hotels, rank them by price and user rating, and book your favourite at the best price. If you want to spoil him, stick to four-star hotels or above.
Think about the food
Food is important to every man, so think about where you’re going to eat when you get to your holiday destination. Perhaps you could book a table at his favourite restaurant, or even prepare a picnic of his favourite foods to eat on the journey down to the hotel?
Make a plan of events
We’re not saying that you need to create an itinerary and plan your weekend with military precision, but having an idea of what you’re going to do can help. Book onto the popular tourist attractions to avoid disappointment, and think about how you’ll get there.
Leave room for relaxing
Of course, you'll want to explore your chosen city when you arrive, and you'll want to book some activities to keep you entertained, but you should also leave room for relaxing. Make sure you choose a comfortable and spacious hotel room and consider booking into the spa if you want to indulge in some relaxation. Massages, face masks and the pool – pure bliss!
Pack the bags in advance
If your husband struggles with organisation, consider packing his bag for him. That way, you'll know he has everything he needs for an enjoyable birthday break, and you'll be able to pack your favourite shirts and outfits, so he looks his best when you're going for a meal.
Book your transport
To remove the stress and make your break even more special, you should think about booking transport instead of taking the car. Trains and planes can make your break more relaxing – you’ll be able to have a drink as you travel, and you won’t have to worry about pesky SATNAVs and roadmaps, which are guaranteed to cause in-car arguments!
There you have it – seven things to think about when you take your husband on a birthday break. Whether it’s just the two of you or you’re going with the whole family, have fun!
