Happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas! Β Today, I’m excited to share a quick and easy DIY — perfect for the holiday season, an anniversary, or a birthday. I couldn’t post the DIYΒ before Christmas, since I made this DIY Date Night Jar for my husband, Ben, for Christmas! :-)

DIY Date Night Jar: Supplies

The DIY Date Night Jar is, essentially, a jar filled with date ideas! Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 Jar.Β This jar or this jar from Target would be perfect!
  • Decorations. I picked up a lot of Sugar Paper goodies from Target — like washi tape and ribbon.
  • Notecards. I cut each notecard in half, the long way.
  • Markers. To write on your notecards.

DIY Date Night Jar: Steps
  1. Decorate your jar however you’d like to. I used washi tape, ribbon, and a cute holiday tag from Sugar Paper!
  2. Write your date ideas — one on each notecard. I wrote 52 ideas – one for every week! I wrote spring and summer ideas in green, and fall and winter ideas in gray.Β A few date ideas included: a DIY wine and cheese tasting, a picnic at the beach, and a pizza-making contest.
  3. Put the ideas in the jar — and gift it!

Ben and I have ‘Date Night’ marked on our calendar for every Friday night. Β So, when we get home, we’ll keep the date night jar in plain sight so we can have quick and easy access to date ideas every week!

I hope you enjoyed this quick and easy DIY! Have a great week!
