Romantic Things To Do for your Husband (Other than watching TV!)

I’ve been married for 18 years. I’ve always been someone who loves to do romantic things for my husband. I thought it would be fun to share with you 50 Romantic Things To Do for your Husband, rather than watch TV. Are you ready for this? I’m excited to share my ideas with you!

Romantic Things To Do for your Husband

I’m going to be real and honest here, date nights are few and far between for us right now. I hate tossing out the word – BUSY – but we are! We’re super busy and by the time it gets to be 9PM… I’m ready for the couch, Housewives and a glass of wine! Here’s the thing – I also crave date nights with my husband.


Things to do with your husband is an important list to have in your head. Date night for us has turned into watching a movie on the couch or tuning into Netflix and binging on a show. I always joke with him that “we used to be so much fun!” Now we’re so predictable and (dare I say it) boring! I want my list things to do with your husband hanging in my office – loud and clear!


A few years ago I shared 101 Romantic Things To Do for your Husband (Other than watching TV). I thought it was time to take the post back out and again share 50 of them! 101 seems daunting, 50 seems doable! Listen – I love watching TV with my husband, but there’s more to life (and US) than just watching people on the TV.

I want to DO things with him and have some fun with him! We now have 4 teens in the house watching us and I want them to see that we LOVE to do things together and laugh and literally enjoy each other’s company!

Fun Activities To Do Together:

Now that we do have older kids, it’s becoming more and more apparent to me why fitting a date night in is so important. We don’t even need to hire a babysitter anymore!

So – without further adieu…
