It is likely you will want to provide your teenager with a birthday they could not possibly forget. Yet, you might not have the first clue about how you can impress them on their special day.

If you are scratching your head about how to make the day stand out from the crowd, you will be happy to know that there are various ways you can make them smile from ear-to-ear. Check out these five tips for surprising your teen on their birthday.

Serve Their Favorite Breakfast

Get your child’s birthday off to the best possible start by serving up their favorite breakfast. For example, you could hang banners over the table and decorate it with confetti and party hats, before presenting them with pancakes, muffins, waffles or all the above. You could even invite over a few of their friends to turn the breakfast into a mini party.

Throw a Surprise Party

Make your teen’s birthday stand out by throwing him or her a surprise party. It is, however, important to consider your son or daughter’s personality to create an event that caters to their needs. For example, if they are rather introverted, they might prefer a small celebration at home with their closest family members and friends. 

If they are more than happy to be the life and soul of the party, you could find a venue, organize caterers, and you could even hire towering rock walls, thrill rides, and/or inflatable games from Orlando Fun Crew. It’s a surefire way to make them feel both loved and special on their birthday.

Find the Perfect Gift

If you are unsure of the best gift for your teenager on their birthday, you might need to do a little digging to ensure they are happy with your chosen present. Rather than spoiling the surprise by asking what they want, you should:

  • Listen to conversations with their friends for present inspiration
  • Linger when they are online shopping
  • Make a mental note of their hobbies and interests

A little research and forward-planning could ensure you select the best headphones, laptop or games console for their personality.

A Surprise Spa Treatment

If your daughter or son likes to indulge in a relaxing spa treatment from time to time, consider whisking them away for a pampering treatment or two on their birthday. A restorative massage, facial or a mani-pedi could make your teen feel both relaxed and spoiled, and it will allow you to spend some quality time together.

Book a Once in a Lifetime Experience

A once in a lifetime experience will help your child’s birthday to stand out from the crowd. After all, they are unlikely to forget a fun white-water rafting trip, a picturesque hot air balloon ride, or tickets to a big sporting game. Carefully consider your child’s personality and hobbies to find the perfect experience, which will ensure you receive a big thank you once the day has come to an end.
