@LadyBlackheart:  If he likes hiking, then take him hiking on Saturday morning.  Pick a local state park you’ve never been to and go early.  Plan to go directly from there to his parents house (pack a change of clothes in the car so you can shower and change a this parents’ house.)

Red Top Mountain State Park with Lake Allatoona looks pretty.  So does Lithia Springs. Hard Labor Creek State Park seems to have some pretty trials as well.  Panola Mountain reminds me of Stone Mountain but looks way less crowded, plus who hasn’t been to Stone Mountain?  What about Etowah Mounds which has old Indian mounds?  That looks really cool!

You could do a short morning hike and have a romantic picnic lunch (I’m talking blanket spread on the ground, sandwiches, a bottle of wine, etc.). Also, maybe write him a letter that he can keep – it could even become a tradition.

If you really want to give him something, gift him a promise (coupon, IOU, certificate) for a future event or activity. Pick something far enough ahead that you can slowly save up for it.

Just be careful with the hike, because all National Parks are closed (thanks to our wonderful government). But that sounds like a nice idea and you shouldn’t have any trouble with timing if you’re not going out till dinner time. And if you are worried about timing, a nice drive to see a site or something like that is always an option. SO and I love to go for “aimless” drives and we always end up somewhere fun!

Can you spare $10?  Go to the dollar store and get some baloons and ribbon. Blow up a ton of them and tie them everywhere in the house when he wakes up Sat morning.  Itll be a nice visual surprise.

Then for breakfast make him something fun. Maybe pancakes in the shape of hearts since his parents are doing dinner. 

Also get some small items you can wrap in tissue paper to give him through the day. Like his favorite candy bar, a $1 scratch ticket, a letter as a PP suggested.
