I LOVE this idea I found on pintrest for a gift that gives all year long!
Finding Joy in the Journey shared a great idea of giving 12 envelopes with preplanned and prepared date nights. She gave them to her spouse so each month they would have a date night planned and ready so they could just go and spend time with each other, enjoying each others company.
She shared this about the envelopes:
This basket holds 12 envelopes. Each labeled with a month of the year. And each envelope contains a pre-planned, (mostly) pre-paid date just for us. Some of the dates will take place at home, some are planned for the local area, and some will take us into town. All 12 dates are different. Several, actually nearly all of the dates are things we have never done before.
The plan is to open the envelope together at the beginning of the month, look at the calendar and decide on a date. So right from the beginning of the month, we’ll have a fun date on the calendar to look forward to.
I LOVE this idea!!! What a great way to build your relationships with the one you love and give a frugal yet meaningful gift. And lets face it ladies, we have lots of date ideas, but the men sometimes struggle for ideas. So this takes the pressure off them as well! Win win!
