Birthday Celebrations Like all of these events, I have found a complete surprise is best. And who would expect a customized song written just about them anyway? Where weddings and anniversaries are typically heart felt songs that are meant to be touching and sweet, a birthday song normally is filled with humor as well as heart. Extremely fun is the way these normally come off.
Anniversaries Typically these are done for some special number, the 25th or 40th or some even the 1st. The number isn’t critical because it goes over so well regardless of which anniversary. However, major numbers like the 25th come with expectations of both the recipient of a gift and the giver. Both parties know the gift better be special. The pressure is on! Do you do what is conventional or something that is unique, celebrates the couple, and is a keepsake that can be played for years to come?
How it is presented is open to many options as well. A surprise presentation where a live performance is arranged at a special location works wonderfully. Simply plugging in a cd of the song or the music file at a romantic location has been magical as well. Usually the giver knows exactly how to pull this off.
