Decide how to get your partner involved in the romantic treasure hunt. Let your partner know what to look for and what romantic reward he or she gets for finding all the items.

Make a list of romantic treasures. In general, small items that can be easily hidden work the best in a treasure hunt. Limit the list to no more than ten items.

Find good hiding places for the romantic treasures. Choosing locations that are special to you and your partner as a couple is a nice touch.

Gather the items you will be hiding as part of a romantic treasure hunt.
