Here are some other theme dates we've had in the past:
Food: Drumsticks and fruit on a fancy platter
Set the mood- Sit on the floor on cushions, eat reclined, feed each other grapes, wear togas?
Food: Play Checkers with Oreos or ELFudge cookies (you get to eat what you conquer). Or have funny dares or questions underneath each piece, when you conquer you have to do the dare or answer the question.
Food- Carribean Jerk Chicken, Sweet potato carribean salad, rice and beans, pineapple or coconut anything
Fun Present- Download mid nineties computer game "Pirates Gold!" and pretend you're 10 again. (I did this for John b/c that was his favorite game from his youth. You have to download a
program to slow down your computer for it to work)
Set the mood- (We didn't do this, but I think it would be hilarious if your husband has a sense of humor) send him on a treasure hunt, then have the final destination be the bedroom (with an x on your backside- get it? X on your booty?. If that doesn't fly, there's always coconut bras.
Dessert- Carve ice cream sculpture and use candies for decoration (we did this on a date in college)
