All opinions are mine alone. #KYTrySomethingNew #CollectiveBias My husband and I just celebrated our 17th wedding anniversary a few weeks ago. It is hard to believe we have been together for almost 20 years! We have two amazing kids, and have built a nice life for our little family. When I think about the romance in our relationship, I have to smile. My husband is not one of those guys who will bring home flowers for no reason or whisk me off to a romantic dinner. The only time of year he is romantic is when he buys me a card for my birthday and our anniversary. Then he will let the romance flow through a beautiful card.
As with many couples, our love life is not what it was when we first met. With two teens, a house to run, me blogging full time, and his full-time job, we don’t always have the time or the energy for our relationship! And, with the busy holiday season, the idea of some alone time gets even more remote. So, we just have to get creative! I found a fun idea how to get the spark back in your relationship…a romantic scavenger hunt! You don’t need to spend a lot of money for your romantic scavenger hunt to get that passion and intimacy back. I bought some nice note cards with envelopes, some chocolates, a rose, and a few odds and ends. I spent a whopping $10!
You can do this on any scale you like. You may have him go to the last place you had dinner, the last place you saw a movie, etc. You get the idea! The main thing is to build the suspense and make sure he has a sweet payoff at the end! You!! For me, I hid my clues around the house. If you want to do this on a larger scale, you can have him drive from place to place to get his clue. In honor of the holiday season, I did “12 Days of Romance”, but did mine in one evening, by hiding 12 romantic clues!
Clue #1 was on the counter, closest to the door, where I had his favorite flavored water waiting for him.
Clue #2 had him go to the herb station, where I told him what first attracted me to him.
Clue #3 had him go to the fruit basket where, I had his favorite snack.
Clue #4 had him go to the lamp in the living room, where I wrote a romantic poem.
Clue #5 had him go to the clock in the family room, where I left his favorite chocolate.
Clue #6 had him go to our wedding photo, where I told him 5 reasons I loved him.
Clue #7 had him go to photos of the kids, where I told him 3 ways he was such a great father.
Clue #8 had him go to the linen closet, where I told him 3 things I appreciate about him.
Clue #9 had him go to the bathroom shelf, where I told him how much I loved his kisses.
Clue #10 had him go to the back of the bathroom door, where I told him a silly joke.
Clue #11 had him look on the toilet seat where I had a new loofah, a lit candle and body wash, so he could take a hot shower.
Clue #12 had him look on the bed, where I had a rose, a new pair of underwear for me to model, and a bottle of K-Y® TOUCH®.
If you want to put the spark back in your relationship, here are a few other ideas. You can leave a sweet note, plan a romantic dinner or give your partner a full body massage using K-Y® TOUCH®. K-Y® TOUCH® is touch activated, so with each caress, you and your partner can feel a heightened sensation. For my husband and I, we love using the K-Y® TOUCH® for our intimate times. Since I hit menopause last year, I have experienced dryness, which my doctor told me was quite common. We enjoy using K-Y® TOUCH® because the warming sensation intensifies our experience and takes care of my dryness as well.
When we purchased our K-Y® TOUCH®, we used this $2 off one K-Y® product coupon while shopping at Walmart. If you are a busy parent and need some intimacy tips, Dr. Laura Berman has some great ideas in this video. Want to see how K-Y® TOUCH® can turn you into a pleasure kitten?
