My boyfriend's 26th birthday is on Monday, September 4 @ Labor Day. His friends are all going to Cedar Point, OH, tomorrow for the weekend, and we would have gone to if my acappella group weren't scheduled for a gig tomorrow night . He doesn't want to leave me alone for the whole weekend, so he's stuck in Buffalo too. Because of that, I want to do something for him. I'm not too good at planning birthdays (not counting my brother's birthday parties ), and I want this to be a surprise for him. We live together, so this is going to be just us. Please tell me all your birthday surprise stories; it'll give me some ideas . And gift ideas would be greatly appreciated too!
