17. Be your guest
Transform your house into a romantic B & B. Go upscale — Frette sheets, organic toiletries — or just visit the dollar store for new hand towels, drinking glasses, and serving trays. Fill a “welcome” basket with soaps, lotions, toothbrushes, tea bags, and other items you’d find in a well-appointed guest room. Turn down the bed and leave chocolates on the pillows before you go out for the day.
