Fun Date Night Ideas

Date Ideas for Married Couples


Since you are used to me sharing health and fitness tips and ideas, I am sure the title of this post seems unfitting. But, we are in a new year and with Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I thought it would be a good idea to share some fun ideas with you today that will help you keep a happy and healthy marriage. Because having healthy relationships in our lives, especially a healthy marriage is essential and makes life a lot more FUN! If you are married or in a relationship, you will want to keep reading because this post is for you! Today, I am sharing my version of a Date Night Jar and fun ways to keep your marriage or relationship exciting!

I originally came across this post from a friend who told me about Jennifer’s blog “Life in the Green House” and I took the idea of her date night jar, revamped it to my needs and went with it. So, today I am excited to share this idea with you!

What you’ll need:
Mason jar/cup/or something cute to put your date night ideas in
“Tongue surpressor” size popsicle sticks {the big ones}
Cream and Red Craft paint
Ribbon {red, pink, cream, and silver}
Scrapbook paper
Permanent Marker
Paint Brush

How to make your date night jar:

1. You will want to paint your popsicle sticks 3 different colors to organize them into categories based on cost. I painted my sticks cream, pink, and red. FYI You can make pink paint by combining cream and red.

2. Once you paint your sticks you will take you permanent marker and write date night ideas on them based on the cost value associated with the date.

CREAM= $10 and under

PINK= $10-$25

RED= $25-$50+ {this category should take some planning}

3. Add some ribbon to the outside of your jar and add a tag with directions on the back so your spouse knows how the “Date Night Jar” works.
