To up the game, choose extra sour and spicy hot flavours!

How can I surprise my boyfriend on our anniversary?

Take him on a mystery trip, where he's not allowed to know where you're going. This could be a cute milkshake date or a place to watch the stars or the cinema... the list is endless! The element of surprise enhances your cute date idea - you could even blindfold him if you know him well! Another incredibly romantic anniversary surprise is to buy him a plain jacket, bag, slippers or hat, anything that is customisable - and then sew on or iron on those cute patches you can find on Etsy to totally customise the item - there are so many patches to choose from, from his favourite anime to favourite tv series or film. You could even add some pins on there as well! This would make the cutest anniversary surprise idea and the garment you make for him will be totally unique and special!

When can surprises go wrong? 

If the surprise is too dramatic or costly, it can have the unintended effect on your recipient, for example, spending a lot on a surprise trip could backfire if you find out they had to work during that certain period. For this reason, it's often the smallest surprises that surprise your husband, partner or recipient the most and make them the happiest, as it is often the thought that counts.

Avoid putting any pressure or demands on your recipient with your surprise

If your surprise requires a certain reaction or actions from your recipient, this might put pressure on them and in return, result in a negative response from your recipient. Examples to try to steer clear of might be, planning an event with many guests at a time your recipient is tired and needing to relax, or indirectly sending a message with your surprise that requires a particular effort on your recipient's part, such as arranging a romantic meal or dressing up, for the expectation of activities afterwards. No strings attached surprises tend to be the best, surprises to make your recipient smile, as they come straight from the heart!

Keep their tastes in mind

When planning a surprise, be sure there is nothing that might be costly or inconvenient for your recipient involved, such as a difficult cleaning job, or anything that might make them feel uncomfortable. Also, if planning a food related surprise, be sure to check for any food allergies they might have beforehand!

How can I surprise my boyfriend when he comes home from work?

 This can be a good time to surprise your husband or partner as they will be unsuspecting and won't be expecting a surprise as they get home - but often the smallest surprises work best for this scenario. Cater for the fact they may be tired when they get home and surprise them in a gentle way with their favourite ice cream, a themed meal or a takeaway!

How to surprise your boyfriend with a trip? 

A great thing to do is to plan a less exciting event with your husband - or a trip for you where you've persuaded him to tag along - and reveal the mystery in the car - he'll have to guess where by the direction you are taking! A surprise trip reveal poem would be perfect for this too. Just be sure your partner has the time off around that time and cover all bases before you set off and surprise your loved one!
