Easter Weekend Date Idea

To get started on this weekend date idea, bake some sugar cookies and decorate them with pastel frosting and Easter images, like colorful eggs, bunnies, and spring flowers. If you want to make something a bit more challenging, you can check out Allrecipes.com  for recipes for chocolate-covered Easter eggs and rocky road candies. Once they’ve cooled, wrap them in saran wrap with pretty pink and blue bows. To follow this dating advice, hide them around the house in places your partner may not expect, like the back of his t-shirt drawer or behind his favorite book on the bookshelf. When your man’s sweet tooth hits, tell him to start hunting!

To make this date idea a bit more personal, grab a pen and a pad of paper to write a few love notes. If you have it handy, use Easter or springtime-themed stationary. For inspiration, Google “love quotes” or “famous movie quotes” and steal some lines from your favorite writers and actors. You can tie these sweet sentiments to your baked goodies.

If you’d rather not hide your presents around the house, create a grown-up Easter basked instead. In addition to your cookies, candies, and love notes, buy your sweetheart that video game he’s been wanting or surprise him with a gift card to your go-to date night restaurant.

If you really want to get in the Easter spirit, spend the day with your nieces and nephews or with your friends’ children. Their infectious giggles are sure to get you in the mood for an exciting egg hunt! Even if you don’t have little ones, it’s a wonderful time to spend with your family. After a morning spent alone with your significant other, get together for a home-cooked brunch and remind yourself of how blessed you are.

Happy Easter!
