It's a little on-the-nose, but you might want to experiment with a massage candle
on your partner's birthday, Hope says. Let your partner make a "wish," and do whatever it is that they want you to with the candle.
2. Send Hints Throughout the Day
If you have plans to see your partner at night, send flirty text messages during the day that suggest what's coming later, Hope says. Or, go literal and send an e-vite for the birthday sex you hope they'll accompany you to later. "It allows your partner to fantasize about what's going to happen when you get together," she says.
3. Eat Sweets
What are birthdays if not an occasion to enjoy some dessert? Hope suggests drawing on your partner with something edible, and licking it off.

4. Make Out Somewhere Public
If you and your partner are going out to dinner somewhere special, Hope suggests stopping along the way to make out in public. Kissing might seem basic, but it's one way to extend foreplay.
And making out right before you sit through a long dinner will just make your partner more curious about what you have planned for later, she says.
5. Pamper Your Partner
Do something small that will make your partner relaxed on their special day, Hope says. Think a luscious bath bomb, an at-home massage, or even a shoulder massage at the local salon. If Thai food makes them happy, send a lunch special to them at work. These little gestures will make them feel relaxed and appreciated, setting a great mood for later on.
