XP from month board: date and activity ideas

For our first anniversary, I am planning to give DH a notebook with 365 date/activity ideas in it - 1 for every day of the year.  The items in the notebook range from going to the movies to volunteering together to sitting on the couch next to each other texting instead of talking.  So far I have come up with 213 things, but I still have 152 to go and I'm running out of ideas!  I have less than 2 months left, so I was hoping maybe you ladies could help me think of some things!  Most of the "conventional" stuff has already been put in the notebook, but I appreciate any and all suggestions!

    [QUOTE]Start a puzzle together
    Posted by AllyG303[/QUOTE]
    I wish!  I really like puzzles, but I mentioned to him the other day when we were randomly looking at toys at the store that we should start a puzzle together, and he was really against it.  He said that he always felt like puzzles were boring and a waste of time!  Which is kinda sad, because I like puzzles, but at least I learned something about DH!  I have been casually sprinkling ideas from the book into everyday conversations to guage whether he likes them or not, because I don't want to put anything that he would HATE doing in there.

    Also, thank you to everyone who has responded so far!  I have gleaned a couple of ideas from the list.  :)
