For some people, finding the perfect gift for that special someone in your life is difficult. Most likely, our partners are picky, have everything they could ever want, and are going to be grumpy on their birthday.

But this year, it’s possible to eliminate all three of those things in order to give your loved one the best birthday ever. Consider this the most important pieces of relationship advice as you celebrate another year of their existence with these birthday ideas.

1. Make dinner reservations at their favorite restaurant.

Some premeditated thinking goes a very long way. Your loved one will not only be impressed that you took the time and effort to make reservations, but will also enjoy spending a romantic evening out with you.

When you call the restaurant, make sure to mention it's your loved one’s birthday and request the most romantic seat in the house. You can also ask about the wine selection ahead of time in order to impress your significant other with a fancy bottle of champagne.

When you make reservations, you can make any special requests like having the chef come and greet you during dinner. This will make your partner feel special on their birthday and give a new twist to their favorite restaurant.

2. Take them to a concert.

Although their music of choice may not be your personal favorite, your partner will be blown away by tickets to see their favorite band or artist. This not only takes some planning ahead on your part, but also may require you to spend a little money.

Regardless, the time and effort placed into thinking about this ahead of time will really impress your loved one. The fact that you are willing to accompany them to a concert or opera will make them love you even more and create a birthday that's impossible to forget.

3. Go on a romantic getaway.

Surprise your significant other with hotel reservations for the weekend. If you both have been busy and it has been difficult to see each other, this is the best way to explore a new city together and rekindle your love.

Chances are there will be great shopping and delicious restaurants to try out on your weekend together. This is a great way to create new memories and have an unforgettable birthday.

4. Make a playlist of your favorite songs.

If you want to keep things simple this year, compile a collection of songs you love to listen to together. Create a playlist that can accompany your significant other in the car wherever they go. This will remind them of you and all of the fun you have together.

If you're going for a classic approach and burning a CD, you can even decorate an album sleeve and type up a list of the songs to place in a CD case. You can even record a special birthday song for the end of the disk. If you’re not up for singing, just give a complementary speech and a few “I love you’s.”

5. Take them on a picnic.

Gather some delicious fruits, cheeses, and salami for a beautiful hike in the woods. You could also bring a nice bottle of wine to compliment your picnic.

Spend the day relaxing and admiring nature as you enjoy a wonderful birthday together. If you live near the ocean, plan your picnic to be just before sunset. This will create a lovely backdrop.
