The surprises start before the actual birthday, based on the number of years of the celebrant. Every day another gift.
For illustrative purposes we will take a person who will be 18. Eighteen days before his birthday you start surprising him with a small present each day until his actual birthday – when you give him the main gift.
Here are a few ideas:
- Prepare a greeting card, cut it into 18 parts and each day send him one part (you can send it in an envelope or send an SMS).
- 18 roses – each day one rose
- Each day send him a hint about the present that he will get on the day itself.
- If you can organize a number of friends, you can buy 18 presents and give him a present each day.
