Make it even more of a romantic experience by packing some treats into a picnic basket.

2. Speaking of Picnics…grab a blanket, pack up a delicious meal, bring along a bottle of wine, and head out to a local park or lake. If you’re doing this at night, drive until you find a scenic location far from city lights. It’s a great way to spend quality time with each other. After your picnic, take advantage of the peaceful surrounding by skipping rocks, flying a kite, playing frisbee or, lie in the grass and watch the clouds go by while taking in the natural beauty. Don’t forget to enjoy the sunset!
