[DIY] 12 Pre-Planned Date Cards
After a brief hiatus during the month of January (c’mon, who didn’t need a break after the holidays?), the ladies of Collectively Creative are back! If you’re new to Inspire & Indulge, let me give you a quick summary. Kelly from Cobwebs, Cupcakes & Crayons formed the Collectively Creative project. The idea is that multiple bloggers choose one central topic and everyone publishes a post at the same time on the same day. It’s a great way to experience new bloggers and see related posts! At the bottom of this post, there are links to all of the others bloggers that are joining in on the Collectively Creative fun so be sure to check them out.
This month’s topic is The Lovey Dovey edition. Very appropriate with Valentine’s Day slowly creeping up, right? With love and romance in the air and on our minds, who’s not thinking about their significant other? If you don’t currently have a significant other, you can still daydream and plan the perfect date for that future special someone!
This is where I come in. I don’t know about you but it’s all too easy for Jon and I to fall into a comfortable routine and not really have any special date nights. For the most part, we’re both okay with this because we’re usually so busy that it’s nice to be low-key but on the other hand, sometimes it’s exciting to have an official planned date night to look forward to. But with a full-time job, working out, blogging, cooking, laundry, etc, it’s hard to find time to think of specific dates. Well, lucky you, I’ve done the leg-work for you for the next TWELVE months!
For our anniversary last month, I crafted 12 pre-planned date cards for Jon that I’m going to share with you. They guarantee that each month we’ll have something specific planned and we don’t have to have the following conversation:
Jon/Leah: “What do you want to do tonight?”
Leah/Jon: “I don’t care. What do you want to do tonight?”
I think we’ve all had a convo like that, right? Here are a few of my favorite cards that I made:
If you’d like to see pictures of any specific months, just let me know and I’d be happy to share them with you. I’m happy to give some scrapbooking ideas too. Alternatively, you could do a printed version like the one below. Here’s the full list:
Although I created this gift as an anniversary gift, it would be perfectly appropriate for a Valentine’s Day gift too! If you have any of your own date night ideas, please feel free to share them! Get creative.
