How many times have you really surprised your husband on his birthday? I don’t mean giving him a great gift he’s had his eye on for a few months. I mean the shock-and-awe type of surprise that left his mouth hanging wide open! If your answer is “too few times to count” or “I’ve never done that, Evgenia”…don’t beat yourself up too much. I know how tough it is to find a gift like that, especially if your guy seems to have everything he could possibly want.
Boudoir for his birthday
Here’s a jaw-dropping idea, though. How about a high-end photo album or an elegant folio box filled with drop dead gorgeous pictures of you? You know, the type of photos for his eyes only? I’m not just saying this because I’m a boudoir photographer… but if you’re looking for a romantic birthday gift for a husband, sensual photos are it. They’re unique. They are stunning. They’re just for him. And they’re all YOU!
There’s so many creative ways you can present them, too. I once had a client who purchased her entire session on a USB drive and put a few of her favorite photos on her phone. She texted her husband two or three on the days leading up to his special day. Then on his birthday night, she left her magnificent photo album sitting on their bed before they went out. When he went to grab it, she told him to wait until they got home so they could share it together. All night, he was anticipating what was inside that album!
Another client made her hubby a “date night box” filled with different envelopes containing her individual photos as well as love notes. Every time they went on a date, he got to open a new one. Needless to say, they went on lots of dates in the months following his birthday!
And not long ago, a client named Ms. A booked a boudoir session with me. She wanted to surprise her hubby for his 40th birthday with a game-changing gift. As many of my clients are beforehand, she was pretty nervous about getting in front of the camera. But the whole session ended up being so exciting and the perfect amount of “me time” she needed, that it was a gift for HERSELF too! Here’s what she had to say about her incredible boudoir session…
“Received the folio box and the USB! The reveal went very well. He was very happy I had done it and said among other things, “You look like you’re 22!” And “I’m so proud of you!” Haha! Thank you so much for a great experience and beautiful pictures!”
