Play with your food. You’ve always been told not to, but it’s time to bend some rules. Make an assortment of yummy treats and blindfold your honey. Feed him one treat at a time and have him guess what it is, or what is in it. If he gets it right, then it’s your turn to be blindfolded.

If you’re feeling a little adventurous, start a classic food fight. Flick a little flour his way, and before you know it, the both of you will resemble the inside of a mixing bowl. If you don’t mind the mess, it’s a fun way to pass the time while waiting for your treats to bake.

You can even decorate your tasty treats, icing is just a ¬†step up from Crayons. Write your man a sweet message on a decorative cake to show him you care. Something as simple as “Glad You’re Mine” or the traditional “I love you” can make him smile. Afterwards, pair a glass of Sherry with your favorite treat, and enjoy sweet conversation with each other.
