Well, I bet that title got your attention didn't it? Ladies, let's get real. If you asked your husband if he considers your bedroom routine (or lack thereof) a trick or treat, what would he say?
My husband would probably say it's a mix of tricks and treats! Sometimes the morning starts off hot and steamy only to get as cold as ice by the time we hit the sheets. Why? Well simply put... life. Life gets in the way. While I may be thinking about being intimate with my husband when I wake up next to him, by the time he gets home, I've been working all day, made breakfast, lunch and dinner, done 3-4 loads of laundry, cleaned the toilets… Okay, you get the idea. I'm dead tired.
Then there are times when I hit peak weeks during the month, and I am always ready to go regardless of what I've done that day. Those would be the treat weeks for sure!
What I didn't realize was that while I was thinking "He'll understand, and take a raincheck," he was thinking "Intimacy. Intimacy. Intimacy."
All. Day. Long.
That's the funny thing about men. It doesn't matter what has happened during the day, how tired they are, or how bad of a mood they are in; they are always wide awake and ready to go in the bedroom; or any room for that matter!
Sometimes I wish I was wired that way, but I'm not. I am wired for romance and affection. This is after all the way we were created. Our husbands view intimacy as a direct result of our love for them, and we view romance and affection as a direct result of our husband's love for us.
My goal as a wife is to focus more of my attention on what my husband needs, and pray that he lets me sleep in more often (just kidding... maybe). Seriously though, I want to put more focus on my husband than I do myself. I know that even when I'm tired, I never regret being intimate with my husband! I do, however, always regret not being intimate with him! That's why I decided to do something a little different this Halloween! This year I am giving myself a tangible reminder that I want my husband to say our bedroom routine is always a treat!
Today I've created a fun trick-or-treat bag for my husband that is sure to be a continuous treat! The funniest thing about this bag is that other than the candy, you would think I was shopping for myself. 😉 Guess it's really a treat for both of us.
If you'd like to create your own Bedroom Trick-Or-Treat Bag, I've got some pretty steamy ideas for you!
What's in my Bedroom Trick-Or-Treat Bag?
What would a steamy Halloween be without clothing that ignites desire? My husband loves it when I dress up for him, so this was a no-brainer. I've always wondered why it means so much to him, and I think I've finally figured him out. Dressing up is something that is either planned in advance or takes effort to accomplish. I think it shows that you put thought into your night of passion and that you WANT him. Men need to feel wanted too, you know! I realize that not all men love lacy bedroom apparel, so you could always replace this with a fun Halloween costume! Maybe a French maid or female superhero costume would get your guy excited.
Lubricant isn't just for menopause, ladies! There's no shame in that either, of course, but lubricant is an excellent way to enhance intimacy and elevate your senses! K-Y® Yours+Mine® Couples Lubricants® is perfect because it's made for both of us. You can choose to use the tingling lubricant, warming lubricant, or both of them at the same time (which is what I recommended!).
There's nothing more relaxing than soaking in a hot tub after a long day, and a bubble bath is both romantic and alluring. This bag may be for my husband, but the truth is it's for both of us. The goal is to bring us together in a way that brings both excitement and romance to our relationship. That's why I love long baths with my husband. They provide the perfect opportunity to decompress and communicate.
The idea behind this gift is similar to the first one. We all know that men are visual creatures, but we often overlook their other senses. The goal of this bag is to awaken all of my husband’s senses, and this includes his sense of smell. I read a study published by a men's magazine, said men love the smell of vanilla, sandalwood, orchids, and jasmine. There were a few others listed, but these are the only ones I can remember. If you've never used a body spray in one of these varieties, maybe you should give it a try!
Lavender Massage Oil:
My husband works two jobs, so I love to give him massages. Much like our bubble baths, massages are a great way to relax, and there is no better time to talk about life than when you're relaxed. I am blessed to have a husband who doesn't mind taking turns!
Come on now, this bag would be a total Halloween trick without some candy in it, am I right? While all the ladies are probably agreeing, the truth is after seeing the first two gifts, our husbands probably wouldn't care!
