Posts Tagged ‘date jar

I mentioned in my romantic pinspirations post a few weeks ago that I was planning to make a date jar, filled with large popsicle sticks with date ideas printed on them.

I finally got around to it, and it cost me a grand total of $3.29.  The large popsicle sticks were $1.29 and the awesome “A” bling sticker for the jar was $2.

This project was super easy. I stuck the “A” sticker (our last name starts with A) onto a leftover glass jar I had.

I painted the popsicle sticks with one coat of white acrylic paint so the Sharpie marker wouldn’t bleed when I wrote the date ideas on them.  I added a little bling to each of the popsicle sticks too.

Here are my date ideas if you want to make your own (most ideas from The Poe Fam and Life in the Greenhouse, some from my own head!):

  • Movie Night In
  • Dessert Only Date
  • Dinner and a Movie
  • Wine and Cheese Night
  • Appetizer Only Date
  • Coffee/Hot Chocolate Date
  • Try a New Restaurant
  • Picnic Date (picnic on the carpet if the weather is bad/cold)
  • Takeout and Board Games
  • Pizza and Video Games
  • YouTube Date (take turns finding videos to make each other laugh)
  • Breakfast Date
  • Restaurant Hop (appetizers at one, dinner at the second, dessert at a third)
  • His Turn to Plan
  • Her Turn to Plan
  • Slumber Party Date (pajamas, snacks and TV in bed)
  • Fondue Night
  • Ice Cream Sundaes
  • Blackout Date (choose your own activity, but do it by candlelight)
  • Dress up Fancy Date

Can’t wait for fun dates with my hubby!  I know he’ll look forward to the video game date!
