Stargazing in a special place is a favorite. 


Things to make it more special include

  • Stuff to make it physically comfortable (e.g., blankets, mosquito nets, etc.)
  • Favorite drinks
  • Strawberries + liquid chocolate for dipping
  • Some very soft, low music
  • Hot tub or hot springs with view of the night sky
  • If talking and cuddling isn’t part of the ritual, books, binoculars, or telescopes can make it more of a joint hobby connection time.
