You can pick up some individual desserts from the grocery store or look through your pantry or refrigerator for something sweet. They key is to keep it a surprise. Decide on how many items you’ll both pick and then each of you select the desserts (or make them) separately. You can hide them in a box or basket until it’s time for the reveal and don’t forget the blindfold – no cheating!
