So as promised before, let me introduce to you, someone very special and close to my heart, someone who means the world to me, my little sister, Sneha. She is our Guest blogger for today’s post and below is something she did for her husband and I told her that it was an awesome idea and asked her to share it with you guys! She was hesitant, and worried about being judged as the ‘mushy’, ‘romantic honeymooners’, but after much convincing she agreed. Thanks Sne! I love you!
Having just been married (three months down) and immediately moving to Switzerland (my husband being a student here) was like a dream come true for me. With no family or friends and not even knowing the language, we were largely dependent on each other for entertainment.
Now, living in Switzerland or anywhere abroad on a student budget is not easy. And considering it is winter, we were limited to being indoors for most of the week.
A treasure hunt was an idea I came up with, on one of those days, I was bored out of my mind. My husband had so much fun solving it, as I had planning it.
It started off from home, with a few stops outside and the hunt ended with him finding the treasure (i.e. ME) back home.
My sister figured it could be a fun thing for couples to do on a budget on Valentine’s Day and wanted me to share it.
Now, I don’t have the patience or creativity like her so I pretty much kept it simple and easy.
To start off,
- I decided on a theme for the treasure hunt. I went with love is in the air. But you could do other fun treasure hunts based on sports theme or movies.
- Decide the location of your clues. I had most of the clues within the house.(My husband found the first clue on our main door, which set the mood for the entire evening.)
- Come up with really funny/cheesy riddles to lead him to his next clue.They can vary according to your theme. (If you can’t write them on your own, there are plenty of free ones online.)
- You can print or write these riddles down on some cool free printables available. And you are all set..!
You can find some free printables on these sites-
4.Make sure you have a good reward planned for him at the end of it all.
Whichever way you decide to do it, you cannot go wrong.Its going to lead to a fun filled and romantic evening.
Happy Valentine’s day!
