Did you know that the average temperature in Arkansas in November is in the low 60s? 62.65°F to be exact. Lows in the evenings can get down to the 50s, which means we’re entering the snuggle season. And if you’re lucky, that snuggle will become a little more as the evening wears on. Here are five things to do with your loved one to help you stay cozy and warm:
This is a great time of year to be outside and enjoy our beautiful state. If you don’t live in an area where you can build a bonfire, look into utilizing a fire pit. If you’ve never built a bonfire or campfire, don’t worry, there are plenty of articles online to help. We found the step-by-step from How Stuff Works especially insightful.
While the warming effect of wine (or alcohol) is only temporary, it does increase blood flow, not to mention make one feel a little, well, you know. People get that undeniable zing after they have a glass or two. But don’t drink alone. You don’t want to miss out on the warmth of community, so participating in a tasting at a local restaurant, liquor store, or even among friends can bring people together.
During autumn and into winter, it’s great to have some soft favorite blankets on hand. Picnic in the park? No problem, we’ll grab a blanket. Fire in the fireplace (or the aforementioned bonfire)? Let’s snuggle together under this blanket. This is also a great time of year to add a new blanket to your bed in case all this snuggling leads you back to your place.
Let’s turn an old saying on its ear: “Can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen” to “Feel the heat, stay in the kitchen.” People have an amazing warm bond when they make a meal together, and certain foods can spice up your love life. Want to take the cooking up a notch and make it sexier? Slip on a little next to nothing while making the meal or plan to make brinner (breakfast for dinner) or brunch after doing the horizontal.
A sexy movie night is always fun, but what if the real show was what was happening between you and your partner? Set a pallet in front of the TV, set a romantic stage in the bedroom, or pull out a sofa bed and create a playground for romance and cinema. Ask Men compiled a list of 10 date night movies, but you and your partner could each submit movies you want the other to see. You could reenact scenes or play with the characters and enjoy the warmth of connecting under the sheets.
