Have your date nights fallen in a rut? When is the last time you made physical contact with your husband a priority? One of the things my husband and I are focusing on this year is making date nights a priority. Since we’re also intensely paying off debt, these date nights have to be frugal too. However, that doesn’t mean they have to be boring. After hating most of what we found on the internet (except for the awesomeness over at The Dating Divas) we decided to come up with our own. First up is this after dark bedroom egg hunt date.

So I’m just gonna say it: my husband and I are so much happier when we’re having sex. When we make sex a priority everything else in our lives runs smoother. We fight less. We are more patient. It’s not just us, either. Sex improves your mood because of basic biological chemistry. It is releasing those feel-good hormones that make stress and anxiety dissipate. There are tons of additional speculated benefits as well. According to this article from Woman’s Day, it can even be good for your skin. Score!
Unfortunately, we too often out sex on the back burner. When physical intimacy stops being a priority in our marriage, other areas start to suffer as well. That’s why this first frugal date night is all about the bedroom. I’ve got 2 free printables that will make this date night a breeze and your husband will love it!
First, print out your Date Night Eggs. You can either use the pre-filled one here or you can print out a blank one to customize for you and your husband here. If printing the blank one, be sure to fill it out before moving on to step two.
Next, cut out all of your Date Night Eggs.
Place one Date Night Egg in each plastic egg.
Lastly, hide the eggs throughout your bedroom for your husband to find.
How To Enjoy
After the little ones have gone to bed, lead your husband to the bedroom. Tell him that there are eggs hidden that he has to find. Each time he finds one, he opens it and has to do what is written inside. Feel the desire build with each egg found. At the end (if you can last that long) finish the game with the big finale.
This after dark bedroom egg hunt date night is the perfect frugal and low-prep idea to rebuild the passion in your marriage. It is time to make physical intimacy a priority again in your relationship. This is also a great way to get your husband on board with weekly or monthly date nights with a bang (no pun intended). Change it up between physical intimacy one date night and emotional intimacy the next date night. This will help you grow closer on every level and that is the ultimate goal for our marriages.

I’m a nerdy, crafty mom of three adorable little kids. I love writing and creating, but in my non-existent free time I also love karaoke, taking my kids to the zoo, and reading. I got my degree in Science (no idea how that happened) but I took every English class I could get my hands on because, yeah, I’m that girl.
