12 Months of Pre-Planned Date Nights
Part of my New Year, New You
resolution was to spend more quality time with my hubby so when I was trying to decide on gifts, I found this one on Pinterest via Find Joy in the Journey
and I knew that was exactly what I wanted to do. One of my readers also suggested it so Kudos to cindy!
12 Months of Pre-planned Dates! All costing pretty much nothing, which fit perfectly into my gift budget. All I purchased were the envelopes, a few nice pieces of scrapbook paper, and some fun stickers.
Sorry the pictures are not great, I was limited on time and trying to get these stuffed and done by the time he came home.
January – “Dress Up Dinner Date” at home after the kids go to bed, dinner was pre-planned and I printed out a bunch of fun date conversation questions from Parents.com
and put it in the envelope.
February “Movie Date” – I used a movie gift card we already had and picked the movie, Contraband (because I LOVE Mark Wahlberg movies) and threw some popcorn in there for fun.
March – “Get Lucky Date” the Irish themed date. Irish Coffees, The Quiet Man movie, and a walk down our Ireland trip memory lane. I got the cute “Get Lucky” printable here
April – “The Spa Date” giving the hubby a checklist of options for Massage, Pedicure, Bubble Bath with Lush sugar scrub, or Chocolate Covered __________. Saw this idea at Love Actually
May – “Fiesta Night” – Tacos, Corona’s or Margaritas, and the movie Nacho Libre. Got the Hot Hot Hot printable here
June – “Picnic and Walk in the Park” with the whole family. Hanging in the park with the family and yummy food.
July – “Game Night” – Scrabble, Uno, Dominos, Catch Phrase. Bring your game face and be prepared to play
August – “Tourist Date” – Get the camera and pack up the car, we’re going somewhere new!
September – “An Evening Under the Stars” – Dinner on the patio under the stars
October – “Memory Lane Date Night” – This is the month we met and got married so we’ll go to where it all started. We’ll go to the location of our first date, first kiss, and just enjoy “You, Me, and our Memories” I also made a C.D with all of “our” songs on it
November – “Bed and Breakfast Date” One nights stay at Che Katherine’s, I included a Do Not Disturb sign and I got a cute printable here
December – “Slumber Party Date” – Sleeping under the Christmas Tree slumber party!
I’m SO excited to get my hubby time and I think he really liked his gift. The options are endless and after I was done, I came up with so many more ideas so maybe this can be our fun tradition. I got a lot of great ideas from some of my lady friends, The Dating Diva’s
and Love Actually
