Different Ways To Surprise Your Boyfriend When He Comes Home

Do you have a boyfriend that doesn’t work from home? I mean, the trend of remote working is becoming the new norm but your boyfriend could be different.

If that’s the case, that means he goes out daily to make ends meet and subsequently comes home to you after he’s done.

Accompanied by the stress of work, your boyfriend could be likely exhausted and needs some rest.

In this case, your strive to surprise should include helping him relieve the stress like making him his favorite food with homemade fruit juice or a warm hug as soon as he walks through the door.

Without further ado, let’s get right into the meat of this section of the article which discusses how you can surprise your boyfriend when he comes home.

  • You can welcome him with a warm and lengthy hug
  • You could try wearing something unusually alluring
  • You can go all out to prepare his favorite meal
  • You can offer to assist him to take a hot bath, which you’ve made available
  • You can try cutting him the slack with whatever habitual drama you put on

1. You Can Welcome Him with a Warm and Lengthy Hug

I know that hugging your partner when he comes home right from work or hanging out with the boys is a normal thing to do. But have you tried reinventing it?

That’s where the magic happens…reinventing the act of hugging to make it transcend just wrapping your hands around his body.

You try something different, and that brings us to the first thing you can do to surprise your boyfriend when he comes home.

There’s a difference between a warm hug and a casual hug. Don’t do the latter, because this tip centers on doing the former and doing it so well that he gets surprised at the remarkable work you put into it. 

To do this, you should hug him with passion and make it seem like you want to have your way into his skin. I know this sounds bizarre but it is just the right dose you need to pull this plug.

While you passionately hug him you should also make sure it lasts more than usual. This is will help cement how surprising it is for him, and get you the reaction or response you so desire.

2. You Could Try Wearing Something Unusually Alluring

Lingerie is not only meant for bedtime or a time when things are about to get freaky in the room. You can employ them if you want to make your boyfriend surprised the moment he steps through the door into the house. Good strategy, don’t you think?

As I’ve observed, thinking is an integral part of being a man because you have a lot of things up in your mind. The same can be the case with your boyfriend and all he needs to relax is a sharp distraction.

Well, your interesting silhouette can be a good way to start the healing process from excessive thinking. 

With that said, you can surprise your boyfriend by putting on something alluring to welcome him when he comes home. And when you do, you shouldn’t hesitate to hug him in this outfit, because it adds to the excitement. 

PS: The advisement about lingerie is exclusively for couples who live alone and have pretty tender or no kids at all. This is to prevent any form of early childhood exposure to sexual orientation.

3. You Can Go All Out to Prepare His Favorite Meal

Another delightful way to surprise your boyfriend is by preparing his favorite meal whenever he comes home, especially from a tedious day at work.

On the day you plan to do this; you should be cautious so he doesn’t pick up any trails about your plans before he goes out in the morning. Because if he does, then it will lose its spice as a surprise. 

You can complement the meal by making him homemade fruit juice using a fruit he hasn’t tasted yet, or one he fantasizes about.

This will help boost the excitement on his face when he sees the palatable dinner set before him. Trust me; he’ll be more than surprised.   

4. You Can Offer to Assist Him Take a Hot Bath, Which you’ve Made Available

Do you want to blow your boyfriend’s mind when he comes home? If so, you can take my word for it and employ this tip and see how he will appreciate it. With that said, you surprise your boyfriend by making him a hot bath and offering to help him take his bath. 

He’s going to insist at first, and that’s where you come in fully with your abilities to convince him. After you’re done convincing him, you should help him take off his clothes and lead him right into the bathtub. Help and scrub and wash… it is all show of love.

5. You Can Try Cutting Him the Slack with Whatever Habitual Drama You Put On

If you have a habit of making little arguments into huge ruffles, especially when he comes home from either work or chilling with the boys, you can avoid them for the day you want to surprise him. I’m sure he’s going to be shocked at your sudden change. 

You need to cut him the slacks with the nagging, complaining, and even arguments. He doesn’t need any of them, so you can surprise him by staying off such radars.

After a long time apart, you can make your boyfriend astonished by taking him to a spa treatment sponsored by you. But before you guys get on the road, don’t tell him where you’re headed. 

You can blindfold him or make him choose between 2 small papers bearing the same content (spa treatment). This makes it so that either one he picks, still has to be a spa treatment in the bag for him. 

3.  You Can Write Sweet Messages on Small Cards and Paste them around the House

Upon the return of your boyfriend from either work duty that took him away for months, you can surprise him by throwing the littlest party between just you two.
