I am super excited to introduce you to a fun and innovative way to spice up your relationship. I actually gave Bethany a love coupon book from Datevitation for Christmas, and it was a total hit.
So, I asked the founder (Alex) to share a date idea here at Engaged Marriage – he not only did that in the video below but offered a great giveaway and discount to our community – details below!
Olga and I are so excited to be doing this guest post for the Engaged Marriage community. You see, our mission at Datevitation is much the same as Dustin’s stated goals for this site — that is, to provide tools and tips to help keep your marriage fun, exciting, and full of love and happiness.
We work to accomplish our mission in two ways. First, we’ve created the web’s first and only totally custom love coupon platform. With our user-friendly interface, you can choose to create an entire custom book (perfect for special occasions like anniversaries, birthdays, or holidays) or send individual love coupons electronically through email or Facebook.
Second, through our blog and video series, we offer free step-by-step guides to romantic gestures and fun date ideas that we hope will help take your marriage to a whole new level.
In the video above, we give you an example of a cute, romantic gesture that will surely put a smile on your sweetheart’s face. And it will literally take you just seconds to pull off.
As you’ll see in the video, Starbucks’ cups all have the following warning message: “Careful, the beverage you’re about to enjoy is extremely hot.” All you need to do is either bring a Sharpie with you to Starbucks or borrow one from the barista, and when your better-half steps away for a moment, take the Sharpie and cross out some of the language so that the warning simply reads: “Be careful. You’re extremely hot.” Then show the new warning to your spouse and enjoy the huge smile that follows.
Olga surprised me with this little trick at Starbucks, and I thought it was so simple yet so genius that I wanted to share with all of you. At Datevitation, we believe in the power of the “little things” and think that if spouses attempted to do the little things more often, it could work wonders for marriages.
As you can see, this literally took seconds for Olga to do, but had me beaming for the rest of the day (and had me bragging to all my friends about Olga’s simple, yet thoughtful gesture). Next time you go to Starbucks, give this a try and let us know what you think in the comment section below.
Also, we would love if you would join us on our video blog at Datevitation for some more how-to advice and date ideas!

Dustin Riechmann created Engaged Marriage to help other married couples live a life they love (especially) when they feel too busy to make it happen. He has many passions, including sharing ways to enjoy an awesome marriage in 15 minutes a day, but his heart belongs with his wife Bethany and their three young kids.
