12 month dating present
I know what you are thinking…life happens, we get busy, and dates become an afterthought.
To help you out, I’m sharing the gift I gave my sister for her bridal shower. The bottom includes a link for printable tags (I altered some to be more generic for everyone).
Don’t worry, I told Shannon about it 🙂Through this project, we had an amazing year, and I also became great blogging friends with Shannon!
I didn’t want it to end when the first year was up, so I went ahead and did it again.
that’s love when he willingly suggests we get dolled up to go out to eat, he in a tux, I in my black sequined jacket.
Everyone at the Mexican restaurant asked us where we were going. ” Our server was sweet enough to offer to take some photos of us to remember the occasion by. Anyway, I felt like it was my turn to show Mark some major love through some special date nights this new year, so for Christmas, I gave him a collection of pre-planned date nights, one for each month in 2014!
Lots of other Year of Dates posts have the date ideas, the plan, and that’s it.
Shannon decided to make dates intentional and gave her husband a Christmas gift of 12 envelopes – each with a pre-planned, pre-paid date to open each month of the upcoming year.
This was just pure genius, and that pin’s longevity and copycats only further prove that!
I decided to copy her, and put my own spin on the gift making a date folder, and gave Jacob this gift our first Christmas married.
No, it is not a waffle maker, iron, or toaster for the wedding.
And it is definitely not your typical roses and chocolates. Finding ways to create new adventures is the key to keeping romance alive.
I had about a quarter of that to use and had to get creative to accomplish the pre-paid part. For me, budget was one of the most important factors in my kit, so I aimed for dates that were budget-conscious.
