Your partner receives personal romantic prizes from a love gumball machine based on the color of the gumball that randomly falls. A personalized gumball color chart determines the prize s/he can win from you.
This creative romantic idea is similar to a repeated love coupon. Only place a romantic action on the prize color chart that you are willing to repeat since there are mutiple gumballs of the same color.
Another option is to remove all of a specific color gumball except one. That one color is the grand prize and creates anticipation.
Some examples of romantic prizes to place on the Prize Chart:
A full body massage
Dinner out alone
A fantasy fulfilled
The Grand Prize=_____
Dessert of your choice
Tell me what to do
A wish granted
Chore free day
The prizes can range from giving up control of the remote for one night to something a little more intimate and personal. You know your beloved better than anyone. What is it that s/he really enjoys on a regular basis?
Write a loving message on the back of the prize chart.
