Men are pretty low maintenance or so we’ve told ourselves to avoid taking them on a date and spending money on them. However, every year in the month of September, the tables turn and it’s their turn to be spoiled and pampered.
We can all agree that men deserve at least one month where they’re the centre of attention. Whether it’s your hubby, boyfriend, brother father, or cousin, take this opportunity to show them some love. The best part is that most men are indeed low maintenance and in some cases, you won’t have to spend a single cent to impress them. Here are some fun ideas you can try.
Go For A Sip & Paint
Is your man artsy or enjoys expressing his creativity? If yes, then you should consider taking him for a sip & paint this September. Sip & Paint events are quickly gaining popularity as they’re not only fun but also a great way to bond with your significant other or friends. It’s also a great way to put your painting skills to the test and whether good or bad, you’re guaranteed to have a good time.
Take Him For A Haircut
Ladies, let’s be honest. How many times have you paid for your man’s haircut? Most of us will say zero but our men pay for our nails and hair all the time. So, it’s time to return the favour. If your man has been looking a little shabby, take him to the barber and pay for his haircut. While there, you can pay for a manicure and pedicure. you man needs some pampering as well.
Take A Workout Class
If you’ve been thinking of starting your health journey with your partner, taking a workout class is a good place to start.

They offer a fun date idea and a chance to try something new. Additionally, horseback riding has a number of physical and mental benefits including strengthening core muscles and boosting self-confidence. Your man will definitely enjoy this kind of date.
Go For A Brunch Date

For instance, your man might not enjoy cocktails. So, you can look for a restaurant that offers beer on its brunch menu. The ambiance should also be suitable for him. most men prefer restaurants that play sports channels so consider going to a sports bar that offers brunch. 5 Great Places For Brunch In Nairobi
