Last year was the first year I gave my husband a date gift for Christmas. I had pre planned 12 dates for the year, one for each month.
Each planned date went in an envelope, and we would open the envelope at the beginning of the month. We had so much fun seeing what was planned for us, because let’s be honest, I forgot what I planned and it was a surprise for me, too!
A few dates ended up being a flop, like the one where I planned for us to go ice skating, not knowing the rink had closed down. Real good date, Amanda! But, most of the dates were so much fun and we really enjoyed doing different things together.
We went hiking at a local park, ate at a new restaurant, went to an amusement park, and had a few fun date nights at home, too!
I love going on dates (and staying home for a night in), and having them pre planned takes all the work out of it!
So, why not gift your husband/boyfriend a year of pre planned dates? I’ve made it even easier on you, and created free printables for you to fill out!
The gift is free to make, but will lead to many enjoyable memories made!
