Date Idea 1: Call in Sick

Never underestimate the power of spending an entire day alone with your significant other, especially when you're supposed to be somewhere else. Park yourselves in the living room and hibernate in your pj's. Order takeout, watch movies, and get busy.

Date Idea 2: Start a Tradition

While cooking together might be something you do every day, there's no reason it can't be special (think: French bistro night, or ragin' Cajun cuisine). Start the tradition now and it'll become your go-to sexy dinner on Saturday nights.

Date Idea 3: Put on a Show

Buy three new lingerie outfits in totally different styles and use your shopping spree as an excuse for a predinner fashion show. Model each in a private performance and have your hubby pick his favorite for you to don after the meal.

Date Idea 4: Get a Rubdown

Book a couples massage at a local spa or set the mood at home with candles, scented oils, and your imagination.

Date Idea 5: Send an Office Surprise

Send your spouse a pizza at lunchtime or have coffee and treats delivered in the afternoon. You'll get kudos from everyone in the office, especially from your mate when they come home.
