This year forget Halloween for the kids—all that noise, and copious amounts of sugar, is enough to make anyone climb the walls in despair.

How about taking time for you and your partner to enjoy the delights that this ancient pagan festival has to offer? Whether you’re first timers or have spent countless Halloweens together carving pumpkins, stoking bonfires or trick or treating, here are five ways to spice up your time and maybe even succumb to the devil in you.

Happy Halloween-ing!

Take a break – Autumn is a magical time of year to be outdoors, whether it’s a day trip or a romantic evening away. What better way to spend time with your partner than to wrap up warm, get out into the spectacular hues of Autumn nature and blow away those cob webs. For a low budget day out pack a picnic and head for the hills. What a way to feel the love.

Pyjama Party – To make the most of your ghoulish time together this Halloween why not slip into your Pj’s, grab the popcorn and snuggle up with the one of your dreams. Watching a horror movie is sure to get the blood flowing and the heart racing…so what are you waiting for?

Cocktails at the ready – The perfect Halloween potion, grab a cocktail shaker and shake, shake, shake.

  1. Blood Bath
  2. 4 parts orange juice
  3. 2 parts Montecristo rum
  4. 1 part Myers dark rum
  5. 1 part Grenadine
  6. Ice

Shake and then pour into 2 Martini glasses and garnish with a slice of blood orange. Mmm! delicious, one just wont be enough.

Bathe in those Bubbles – Soothe your cares away with a candle lit bath for 2. Add Pumpkin Spice Muffin Bubble Bath to experience a true Autumnal aroma. According to scientific research this particular aroma has been found to arouse men and women, so you’ll both be totally irresistible to each others charms…..Oh yeah!

Dinner for 2? – If it’s food your craving, as well as the love, look no further. Forget the devil and feed the angel within with this healthy meal for you and the one you love. After you’ve spent time hollowing out those pumpkins, why not get down to preparing a romantic candle lit meal for two? This gives you a chance to get creative in the kitchen and enjoy a mouth-watering Creamy Pumpkin Risotto Bake. A great recipe that’s full of natural goodness and veggie too, if you’re so inclined.
