  • Clear a space in the middle of the living room, put a bunch of candles around the room (you can set them on plates, mirrors and stuff to catch the wax drips) and have a candle lit picnic in the living room - you can even serve romantic finger food sorts of things, wear a sexy nightie, etc.

    Or, you could dress up (not in a nightie), and, along with dinner, play a card game with a twist - strip poker, rummy where so many points are worth so many minutes of massage or whatever, etc - add a twist to it - NO fooling around - hands kept to himself - until dinner is done, dessert is eaten, game is over, etc - drag it out and make it sexy ;-)

    Do something whimisical, go to an amusement park w/out the kids - have him win you a stuffed bear, ride rides like the merry go round, etc.

    Go dancing - in fact, you could sign up for a dance class for something like salsa or tango or etc - and make it a regular date night :-)

  • Get a couples massage at the local massage therapy school. It's inexpensive and relaxing. You'll love it!

  • Radical suggestion I realize, but how about asking HIM what he'd enjoy doing?
