How can I encourage my boyfriend to plan dates more often?

My boyfriend of over a year and I have a great relationship. One of his best qualities is that he's so easy-going, but that's also led to an annoyance: he rarely takes the initiative to plan our dates anymore.

When we first met he would think of a few options and let me pick. Now he reserves his weekends for me, but just says he'll do whatever I want to do. I know it's because he just wants to spend time together and really doesn't care what specifically we do. I don't mind planning even most of the time - my friends get together more often than his do and I'm on a few event mailing lists - but I would appreciate it if sometimes he'd make the plans.
I don't want to elevate this to the level of a Talk, so I'm trying to think of casual ways to encourage him. Ideas?
