Valentines Date Night Jar

This little jar is perfect for a very cheap last minute gift for your valentine. A little jar full of ideas for date nights with your love. To be honest Phil and i only usually do cards and a nice dinner but i thought this would be cute and i love to find uses for old jars! 

It took me about 10 minutes to make and was free as i already had everything in the house.
I washed out a small glass jar, and peeled the label off. I then decorated the jar using some gift ribbon and Mr and Mrs tape which i had leftover from our wedding when i made jars for the pick n mix. Then i cut out some hearts from pink paper and wrote on various ideas for date nights folded them up and popped them into the jar alongside some silk rose petals ready to pull out when we have some child free time.
 The best thing about this is that you can use whatever you have to hand to decorate and personalise the date ideas to suit you and your partner but here are a few to get you started.
  • Cinema trip
  • Picnic(indoor or outdoor)
  • Ice Skating
  • Share a bath with a bottle of wine
  • DVD and popcorn evening
  • Boardgame evening
  • Visit a local art gallery
  • A meal out
  • A long walk 
  • A night away in a hotel
  • Go out for ice cream
  • Go stargazing
Happy Valentines :)
