Birthday Suprise Summer Holiday

Hello everyone :)

I know the whole surprise thing has been spoken about but I am really struggling with this.

I am booking a week away in the sun (6 hour flight) and its for my boyfriends birthday but we will be leaving a week before his actual birthday so that we are home to spend it with his family.

Keeping it a secret will be easy as I have already managed to get him the time off and he won't suspect a thing.

How can I announce it? I wanted to wait until the day we fly but we have to leave for the airport at around 4.30am and I don't want to miss anything out of his suitcase.

Any advice would be really appreciated, thank you so much!

    Night before the flight casually say you both need an early night! No nudge nudge wink wink sort of early night, an early night because you're up at 2am to catch a flight.
