One Gift That Lasts All Year: A Basket of Date Nights

By Jaime Morrison Curtis |

Start planning now, and give your husband (and yourself) a gift you’ll enjoy all year long…

12 pre-planned, pre-paid date nights – one a month for a whole year. I adore this clever idea, especially for those of us who have recently become parents. Sometimes forced dating is the only way to keep the magic alive! Find out how this woman did it after the jump…

Creator Shannon Brown says: 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.

    I took this idea and made it my own by embellishing the basket and envelopes with garland ruffles, and embroidery! I’m also offering free printables for the envelope labels I used! Go here to see my tutorial! :)
