It’s not always easy to find something to do with your spouse or partner. For some, the question, “What do you want to do?” triggers some anxiety and needless head spinning. So, we want to give you some fun, easy and affordable tips to help you answer that age-old question.
Backyard dates are great for when you don’t want to get dressed and ready for a big night out. They are made for lazy days, spontaneous days, and for every day! We know that it’s not easy to come up with the money for an expensive wine and dine date night every weekend. That’s why we want to give you some tips on how to enjoy that quiet area behind your house that so often gets ignored.
Stargazing has always been one of the most romantic past times for lovers. There’s something about the cool, refreshing nighttime breeze and the chilling darkness. This sort of setting is ideal for talking, lying back, and coming to terms with reality. We all need to spend a little time doing less than what we usually do. No phones, no distractions, and not much planning. That’s what makes this date so legendary.
Do you remember the days when you weren’t afraid of getting yourself a little dirty? When you were unafraid of messes and color? Let’s get you back in to that headspace. Why not get some cheap 99-cent acrylic paint from the local discount store and a big piece of paper and just let loose? Lay it out on a big blanket on the grass (or concrete) and spread yourself out. Paint with your eyes closed. Or paint using your partner’s hand. Get messy. Get dirty!
If you don’t like badminton, it’s ok but it is one of the greatest “sports” we have. Easy and entertaining, this may become your new favorite past time. If your back yard is big enough, playing badminton is a great way to work up an appetite before dinner. But don’t worry, if you can’t spread out far enough in your back yard or don’t have one, just walk/ drive to the nearest park and play for a while. You might just come out of it in a better mood and with a smile on your face =)
Sky lanterns are usually flown on special occasions to honor the life of a deceased loved one or to celebrate something special. For you and your special someone, flying lanterns can be a festivity of appreciation for one another. After all, love is something to celebrate. Easy as lighting a candle, this activity is sure to warm your heart. As you watch your lanterns fly up into space, take a moment to commit it to memory. Let all your worries, bitterness, and troubles go with the lanterns as they fly away. (disclaimer: check with your local city for rules about sky lanterns)
In the end, our hope is for partners to experience joy and unity everyday. True appreciation of each other’s presence comes when there is quality time spent with one another on a daily basis. Backyard dates are easy and simple enough for just about anybody. So take the extra time and find ways to express your gratitude towards each other daily.
