Climb those steps or scale that fire escape and have a picnic on your roof. Sip rosé and snack on your favorite cheese on a brightly colored, Southwestern picnic blanket.

Put on your aprons (just your aprons?) and get to work on an exciting meal. Consider incorporating aphrodisiac foods such as hot chilies, avocados, chocolate, oysters, pomegranates, salmon, or whatever makes your mouth water!

Put on a romantic record (can’t go wrong with Otis Redding) and dance in the living room. Swaying to the music is sure to put you in sync with your partner.

Wrestle. Have a pillow fight or a tickling war. Get a little rambunctious and enjoy a good belly laugh together.

Redecorate a room to create an imaginative scene. Turn your kitchen into a Parisian Café or project images of snow falling in your bedroom and get cozy on a sheepskin rug.
