My SO is having a rough week, and I really want to cheer him up and surprise him! We both have a day off this week, but there isn’t anything interesting going on in our city on that day. I tried finding a concert or hockey game, but no luck!
I also tried looking for ideas online but nothing really caught my eye.
What do you do to spoil your SO? Ideally I’d want to find an activity we can both enjoy, or plan a surprise at home. Shoot me your ideas 🙂

geekychinchilla: I do small things to surprise him like sneaking out to get us breakfast while he is in the shower (be careful – one time i scared the living daylights out of him coming home as he wasn’t aware i was even gone! LOL) you could also make breakfast.
Is there any new restaurants he has wanted to try? New movies? Maybe an exhibit at a museum? Pinic at a park? Hike? new video game he has been wanting?
Worst comes to worst you could rent movies, pick up all his favorite snacks and have a lazy movie day.

You should find a place to play laser tag! My SO and I went the other day and it ended up being so much more fun than I thought. It can be fun to compete against eachother!

My Fiance and I are total homebodies- when we’re stressed, all we want is a date with Netflix, some wine, and some dinner. If he’s having a rough week, he might just want a nice relaxing evening at home with his girl 🙂

What are some things he really enjoys? Is he a beer guy? Take him to a local brewery for a tour (sometimes free!) and tastings. Outdoorsy guy? Gear up and play paint ball. Sports? See if there’s any local sports team game.
For my FI, I’ll buy a luxe massage bar (love them from LUSH) and give him a full body massage, take him out to lunch or dinner and a movie, or take a class together, like cooking or fitness.

A surprise and enthusiastic BJ is always a good start!

I once got wine and made short ribs, mashed potatoes and pie, then cleaned up the whole apartment, and had It all presented with me in a sexy dress and heels when he got home! He liked it

Last time I suprised him was his favourite dinner, his pick of what to watch on TV, brought him his favourite beer (opened of course) then a couple of candles in the bedroom, my best lingerie and some makeup and a long massage with a bj to finish him off (sorry if TMI) while he didn’t have to lift a finger! He adored it and bragged to his work mates (didn’t love that :/) but one of them did propose to me when I saw them next, and all agreed if he doesn’t marry me, they will. best part was it cost barely any time or effort since I had to cook dinner anyway and I enjoy touching him. Men really are simple creatures 😛

geekychinchilla: I make ribs or steak! It’s like flowers for DH. You can’t go wrong with meat! 🙂
A craft beer would be cool for lots of guys too. My husband doesn’t drink, but I know where to buy some fancy and hard to find soda. So once in a while I’ll trek down to the neighbourhood where it’s sold (only place in the city) and pick some up. We’re both homebodies, but him more so. So, I make up something nice at home.

geekychinchilla: I like to surprise FI by getting naked in the middle of the day. 😉 Seriously though, I LOVE date-days! If the weather cooperates, what about a picnic, with beer and sandwiches?Or bowling is always fun. I think that anything competative and lets a guy have fun and blow off steam works the best.
You could also have your own little mini pubcrawl. FI do this once in a while. Make a list of all the places you want to go but haven’t and go try them out. One drink per place, with a snack here or there, and that’s an entire afternoon.

Just wanted to let you all know that I did pretty much all of what you guys suggested, homemade surprise brunch with mimosas, bowling, beer, walking around downtown, taking an afternoon nap… We had an awesome time and he was really happy 🙂
