College is an excellent place where you make many lasting friends who will stay with you for a long period of time. Some of them might be studying in the same class as you, engaged in the same clubs and societies that you are a part of or playing the same sport that you do. However, the closest and best friend that you make would be your dorm mates or your roomie as you two or the couple of you would be spending a lot of time together while you are not engaged in studies.
Surprising her and making her birthday a wonderful day, becomes a responsibility of your as the friend would be counting on you to make it a great day for her. Therefore read the below to get an idea on how to surprise your room mate on her birthday.
Get her taste right
We all have different friends with different obsessions and liking and we would be highly pleased if what we get for our birthday has something to do with our obsession. Who wouldn’t want a sponge bob cake? While you are in the dorm with her make sure to spend a lot of time chatting to identify what your friend likes that best. Make mental notes about what she likes and what she doesn’t like. The colours that she like and her personal styles. Some people like quiet parties with good food and soft music, while other might love parties with big crowds, loud music and lots of drinks. When talking with her you might be able to identify what kind of a person she is, so make sure to ask some tricky questions.
Plan in advance
This is mostly relevant if you are planning on doing a huge surprise party for her and if it involved inviting a lot of people. Make sure you secretly invite them so that they could strike off that day as booked and they can plan their gifts. Assist them on gifting your friend with your knowledge of what she likes and what she doesn’t. If you fail to give them any clues let them know that it’s okay to refer to a website selling gifts for students going to university and simply order whatever they prefer, as their presence is what you and your room mate needs the most.
Get to work
Party won’t happen without proper décor and food and drinks which means that you must secretly prepare all these without your friend noticing what you are doing. This is going to be the trickiest of them all. Also, since you might have to bear a considerable cost for the food and others on your own, it would be a great idea to seek for help from a few other friends and DIY some décor that you are planning to have on her birthday.
Although you might throw a big party you are still expected to give something that means well to her and therefore, you could try things such as customized necklaces or coffee cups to be gifted to her. Or you could simply something off your list of things you need for uni and strike off a few by getting them customized for your friend.
For example, if you need plain papered note books, you can DIY a pretty cover and add a personal touch to it so that she would simply love it and she could use it for her college work.
