Date Night in a Jar
Here's a great idea for a wedding, anniversary, or just a romantic gift - a date night jar! It is super simple to make and helps with coming up with something different than just watching a movie together. I made this as a gift for a bridal shower I attended a couple of weeks ago.
- An old jar (I used an old spaghetti sauce jar)
- Spray paint (for the lid)
- Large craft sticks (for date ideas)
- Paint (to paint the craft sticks)
- Ink for distressing
The hardest part was cleaning off the label and glue from the jar. I found some great ideas online for fun dates. For a huge list of 52 date ideas for an entire year visit Alison at Oopsey Daisy. Another great website for really fun ideas is The Dating Divas. Next time I think I will embellish it more, but this fit in with the brides style. I even made one for me and my hubby too! The best part is that it is a personal gift that costs very little. Plus, it can go perfectly with that little something that always makes the bride blush without being too tasteless.
