Hubby and I celebrated our three year anniversary last week. Because it seems a little silly to go all crazy for three years (even though we have been together for 8) we kept the whole event low key. We did, however, exchange gifts. I got a two person tent. That was Hubby's way of saying he would try camping with me (yay, I love camping). We have yet to get the sleeping bag, but all in good time.
My gift to him was much more personal. I made a DATE JAR. We never know what to do when we want to go on a date. We end up sitting there saying "What do you want to do?" "No, what do you want to do?" it goes on forever until we just settle for dinner and a movie. We ARE already an old married couple.
So to solve this issue I made a jar full of date ideas.
It was super simple. I started with a long list of date ideas that I actually made with Hubby's input. I then categorized them from most expensive to least.
I printed each selection of dates on different colored paper. Cut them out. Folded them up ... and put them in the jar all mixed up.
I labeled the jar (so hubby would know what this jar full of paper was.
On the back of the label I have the code to the price range of each date.
Tie a cute ribbon on it, and I am done. I picked a more "manly" ribbon with Hubby in mind. (I didn't think he would appreciate a pink ribbon, but did throw in some pink paper for style. I like pink.)
Now, when we don't know what to do for our dates we can just pick a card from the jar.
What do you think? Do you have a similar problem with dating your hubby or significant other? What is your "go-to" date?
