There are ideas all over the internet that talk in some way about having a kit all put together for your romantic evenings, so the idea of a kit isn’t a new one. But each kit is personalized for each couple. What I want in my kit, you may not care for in yours. The ideas below are ones I put in our kit. I know there are other places to find the same idea of putting candles (or whatever) in your kit, but they are a romance staple.

I don’t know about you, but I like to plan my romantic evenings out. Now I’m not talking minute by minute, but I like to know that I’m going to have everything we need and that it’s accessible. Nothing will kill the mood like having to stop and look for the… well, whatever it is you’re looking for. You know the point I’m getting at.

I went and bought a large, clear tote at Target. We store ours in the bedroom, so clear works. If you’re worried about anyone seeing the contents, a colored tote might be your best bet. My tote is 30 quarts, but you could absolutely use a smaller one if you want. Organization is beautiful.
Choose some of the essentials and start stocking your Romance Kit. Some things to consider putting in your kit are among the basics of romance 101. For example:
~ Matches or Lighter
~ Massage Oils
~ Romantic Music (a mixed CD with your special songs, maybe?)
~ Fake Rose Petals
~ Champagne Flutes
~ Bath Beads
~ Bubble Bath
~ Bath Salt/Fizzers
~ An Outfit or Two
~ A set of Dirty Dice or Regular Dice for playing Dirty Dice
~ Pack of Playing Cards for games
~ Any ideas/items you collect concerning future date nights
~ Bathtub Crayons
~ Sparkling Cider or your choice of beverage (this is something you will need to replace)
This is awesome if you get a night away. Grab your tote and go. You don’t have to worry about forgetting anything. Easy, breezy and sure to help keep the heat in your relationship.
