Pin It Things to do for your hubby here are 32 fun and flirty ideas for ways that you can spoil your sweetheart, from fun dates to silly, small things.
The tie is obviously between her and my other sister, Laura, who is pictured with her hubby in the hilariously cheesy pic above. My sister Rachel is a supremely talented writer. Of course, you could also do most of them for almost anyone in your life that you love. There are a few I would definitely skip for your friends and colleagues…. There are countless pictures of them doing things with mouths wide open in enthused grins and two thumbs up.
They are so funny. I have no idea what they were up to in the picture below….. I love those two goofs! There are few Amazon affiliates links in this post. That means if you click them and then buy them I get a small percentage of credit for referring you. I never thought this day would come since I have never made a cute craft in my life! It is a fun tradition for the whole family. You could also just do this with a photo of you and the kids holding a sign. I also made appointments for us to get massages on his day off next week.
I figured he might not be willing to go into a spa without me, so I get to have a massage too. Super excited about this!! Lots of artists on Etsy have beautiful, original work. It would be fun to have the kids help with this.
The snow couple could even be holding hands or holding a sign with a loving message. Of course, if you enjoy scrapbooking then you can do that too. Sarah really enjoys the ease of Project Life scrapbooking. Clean the whole house, or the garage, or the refrigerator. Do it for him. Is there something that bugs him about the house that you can take care of?
Ryan is not a huge fan of the messy card table that I currently have in our bedroom—it is overflowing with papers to be filed and stuff that I need to get organized, and it really is an eyesore that gets in our way. Things to do for your hubby can also benefit you! Ryan did this for me one year. I thought it was adorable. You can also just do something as simple as hanging white twinkle lights on the headboard of your bed or light a candle and put on music…something romantic and different that will surprise him.
Sarah and Logan are big gamers. Here are two of their favorite two-player games: Lost Cities and Splendor. You could also be sneaky and let his secretary or boss in on the plan, so they will make him think he has a meeting, or a conference call, or a patient to see…then you will show up instead. Ryan did this for me one year, and even included Pepto Bismol as part of the love note…random!
I think I got the printables from Pinterest or something. I think I am going to do this for Ryan as our actual Valentines Day night date next week—and we will just look for Fun Dips and Jones Sodas at the grocery store reminiscent of our first date , go ice skating reminiscent of our second date , go get some kissing pics in a photo booth at the mall reminiscent of later dates , and possibly go to dinner at a restaurant that we loved and still love when we were in college.
I know there are a gazillion fun date ideas online, but honestly, who has time to look update ideas online?? I will either make a list of at least one we can do every month this next year, or I will make a huge list to read to Ryan, and he can help me decide what sounds fun. If you are an artist, paint him a picture. If you are a writer, write him a poem or a love letter or a narrative about your marriage.
If you are a musician, write him a song, or sing him a favorite love song, or serenade him with your guitar.
Take a chance and try something different…it might end up being a bust, but at least it will be an adventure and something to laugh about in future years. A few years ago, I got a coupon in the mail for a Russian bathhouse near our house. I decided to live on the wild side and book an appointment for me and Ry for Valentines Day.
It ended up being one of our most memorable, hilarious, and random dates ever. I still laugh when I read that post and remember that night. Buy it for him. Vacuum it out and Windex the dashboard etc. Fill it up with gas. Leave a love note on the seat and put a mix CD of love songs in the CD player. On February 14th, Ryan gave me a glow-in-the-dark necklace with a note saying that I could wear it on our sledding date that night.
He was going to take me to a famous sled hill near Buffalo, New York, where we were living, for an evening adventure. I hope you all have a spicy and romantic and fun Valentines Week, and I hope this list of thing to do for your hubby makes that just a little easier! Let us know in the comments!
