The MamaZone: Romantic Scavenger Hunt #KYTrySomethingNew [ad]

Remember my 21 Simple Romance Ideas? Even after almost 3 years, it’s still one of the highlights of my little blog. It seems I’m not the only one who believes romance is very necessary, but doesn’t have to be complicated. So, I’m back with another idea (with some help from K-Y®) to show you how to easily add some romance into your holiday season.

A 12 Days of Romance Scavenger Hunt

The MamaZone: Romantic Scavenger Hunt #KYTrySomethingNew [ad]

My husband and I just celebrated our 21st anniversary and I’m certain we’re busier now than we’ve ever been. It makes it difficult to squeeze in those romantic gestures that seem to come naturally when you’re just starting out and we’ve learned that sometimes, you literally have to plan the romance.

And listen, there’s absolutely no shame in that. Life is busy and if we let it, intimacy will certainly get lost in the shuffle. This is especially true around the holidays, so use this fun romantic scavenger hunt to amp up the romance in your marriage. Check it out…

Using Your Scavenger Hunt Printables

I had so much fun creating this printable Scavenger Hunt Kit for you and it’s so easy to use.

The MamaZone: 12 Days of Romance Printable Scavenger Hunt

12 Days of Romance Couple’s Scavenger Hunt with pre-printed clues, instructions and blank clue cards.

  1. Click one of the images above and open my free romantic scavenger hunt printable. Hopefully, it will make you think of a time long ago, before love notes were replaced by text messages ;-). (And don’t worry, men–the printable is guy-friendly!)
  2. Print and cut your scavenger hunt clues. If the clues don’t work for you, use the blank cards to create your own. You might also want to take this high-tech and simply text your clue each morning.
  3. Choose a date to start and a place to leave your clue each morning. Make sure it’s in a place they won’t miss.
  4. Shop! Use my ideas below to spark your imagination, then buy twelve meaningful gifts to share with your sweetheart this holiday season. There’s no need to break the bank on this. In this case, the thought really does count!
  5. Tell your spouse to expect some fun surprises and put your clue and gift out each morning.

Gift Ideas for Your Romantic Scavenger Hunt

To make this work, you’ll need twelve small meaningful gifts. That might sound a bit overwhelming, so I have some suggestions.

The MamaZone: Romantic Scavenger Hunt Gift Ideas

  1. A sweet little love note telling your sweetie why you love him/her.
  2. Everything they’d need for a relaxing bubble bath (with or without a guest).
  3. K-Y® Yours+Mine® Couples Lubricants®, which you can find at Walmart. It might be something new for you, but that makes it even more fun. Plus, you can use this coupon to save $2 when you buy K-Y® at Walmart.
  4. A personalized playlist with songs that mean something to both of you or songs that tell a great love story. Burn this onto a CD or take the digital road.
  5. Something lacy in a little black box for him/her (or you!) to wear.
  6. A dinner by candlelight or a picnic by the fireplace.
  7. Print out a map showing the place where you met and put it in a frame.
  8. Buy personalized jewelry or another piece of jewelry he/she will enjoy. The one pictured can be personalized with any coordinates.
  9. Grab some very red lipstick. Whether you’re the girl giving it to your guy or the guy giving it to your girl, it means one thing…lots of kissing!
  10. Get something new for the bed, like the couple’s pillow cases in the picture above. (I love these!)
  11. Something sweet for your honey to eat.
  12. Everything you need for a romantic massage.

You can’t go wrong with this list or these printables! I’m certain they’ll help build intimacy in your marriage and I can’t wait to surprise my guy with these gifts. You can find most of these things at Walmart and if you’re looking for the K-Y®  products, you can find them near the pharmacy as in the picture below.

    I really like this idea. I am a firm believer in keeping the romance going in a marriage and after being married for 15 years I am still looking for new ways to show him how much I love and appreciate him.

    Awesome Anitra. Thank you, thank you. Exactly what I was looking for.

  • indterra

    One other idea I would add is to include geocaching into the scavenger hunt, so you can embed clues that can be opened up through an app at a specific location. I am going to combine your idea with geocaching. For instance, I am going to leave a hidden geocache at a favorite hangout spot that can be discovered through gps.

    • Awesome idea!! Hope it goes well.
