In 2014 my husband gave me a date jar. He’d filled 72 envelopes (he got a bit carried away!) with date ideas. Every Monday morning I opened an envelope and we had to make an effort to do what the card said that week. It was exciting, some ideas weren’t what I’d choose to do but we made it fun, and most importantly we made time for each other in our busy lives – something we all can forget to do!
Everyone I spoke to about it said ‘that’s a great idea, I wish I had time to do that’… Well now you don’t need to make that time – and there’s a surprise for both of you as you open each envelope!
There are enough envelopes for one a week for a whole year, that’s the challenge! Lots involve staying in the house, some involving travelling further afield. Some are free/cheap, others you can make more expensive – how you interpret the card is up to you.
Most importantly laugh, kiss, cuddle, make memories and enjoy quality time together!
Where a choice is involved, a dice is provided, the person opening the envelope should roll the dice. The card will tell you whether you are aiming for an odd or even number. If you ‘lose’, the decision making goes to the other person.
We have plans to add more products – including the chance to personalise your dates, days out for families and more!
I really hope you enjoy the experience as much as I did. Kate x
