After Patrick got home last night we had to run some errands. One of the stops was Target. I personally love to shop, while Patrick loathes it. So while starting down the first aisle, I had an idea to make our shopping trip more exciting (and to keep him from complaining). The rules were that during the course of the trip we were to find a small present for the opposite person. The limit was $5 and you could break off at any time to go search for an item.
It turned out to be really fun! And it didn't break the bank! He broke off right away while I finished finding the things we actually needed. Here are the results:

I thought it turned out to be a nice way to spice up a boring errands run. There was no complaining from either party and it was a great way to see how much we really know about each other. So that got me thinking, what are things that you and your significant other do to keep things fresh without breaking the bank?
