I'm unemployed and broke, and my husband's big 30th birthday is right around the corner. He went all out for my 30th, so I feel horrible that I can't afford anything nice. Suggestions?

So I lost my job a while back, and I'm pretty strapped for cash when it comes to buying anything beyond the essentials. My husband is turning 30 in a couple months and I feel bad that I can't afford anything nice for him. When I turned 30, he took me on a week-long trip that was obviously very expensive, not to mention a surprise. Any suggestions of creative AND CHEAP things I can do to make his birthday amazing? I'm thinking a surprise party, but just any old surprise party won't really do. We are the types to go all out for birthdays and holidays, so not being able to do that this year, especially for such a big birthday, makes me sad. Even though he understands my situation, trust me - he will be disappointed if he doesn't have some kind of big deal going on for his 30th. Any suggestions?
