5. Visit a Dark Sky Park
What is a dark sky park? It is exactly what it sounds like. It is a place where the dark sky is preserved from any sort of unnatural light creating an extraordinarily fantastic view of the starry night.

The stars will be the brightest you have ever seen! This is sure to get your romantic juices flowin and an amazing gift to your sugar plum. Maybe he will get lucky??? You be the judge.
////True Story: When my husband and I were about to get married, we drove up to Black Butte which is a city near swanky Bend, OR. It was the end of December so you have to drive over the mountain pass to get there so the roads are very icy and snowy. Long story short, my husband pulled over to put chains on the tires only to find out they DIDN’T FIT!!! So while we were standing there trying to figure out what to do, I look up and I swear I have NEVER seen the stars so bright before. They seemed so close I felt like I could touch them. It was one of the most beautiful things I have EVER seen in my life. So this theme idea was inspired by that trip. Here is a pic from that trip
6. Leggo My Eggo
Start off his morning with deliciously weird tasting Eggo Waffles. Looks nothing like a waffle, tastes nothing like a waffle, but are so delicious you dream of them in your spare time. If he is anything like my husband and I then you are obsessed with Netflix’s hit series Stranger Things. Channel his inner “Eleven” with a tasty breakfast. Haven’t seen Stranger Things yet? Please do yourself a favor and check it out. Its like E.T meets The Goonies. (But if he’s a real space geek, he should already know this) Here is the trailer for Stranger Things season 2 set to premiere on Halloween! The anticipation is KILLIN ME!
6. Star Trek Bathrobe
Where are all my Trekies at? Have your hubby stepping out of the shower in style in this cozy Star Trek robe. Funny?… CHECK. Perfectly Cheesy?… Check. Your man hating that he LOVES it?…. CHECK CHECK AND CHECK!
6. Anything Neil DeGrasse Tyson
If your guy is a true lover of space, then you can’t lose with NDT. The mustache alone is that of legends. Who didn’t watch Cosmos when it first came out? (probably a lot of people but that’s besides the point). Treat him to an NDT book or DVD. Or better yet, why not have him just sport his face around on a day to day? The sky is the limit. And you really can’t go wrong. He’s going to LOVE YOU for this awesome gift.
