For Valentines this year I decided to create something a little more personal, suitable for those of us on a budget!

I thought the idea of a ‘date jar’ was really sweet. I bought a kilner jar online and filled it with date ideas written down on pieces of red card.

Some of the ideas included:

  • Cinema
  • Pizza night
  • His dinner choice
  • Her dinner choice
  • She cooks
  • He cooks
  • Board games night
  • Bowling
  • The zoo
  • A country walk
  • Picnic
  • Netflix night

…and many more! You can throw in as many ideas as you like and make them quite generic or really personal to you and your other half.

You can buy a similar kilner jar onlineĀ here.

You can make the jar as simple or as fancy as you like, I tied some string around the top with a label and put straw on the inside to make it a little more decorative.

What are your ideas for Valentines?

Let me know!

    Such a cute and simple idea. My boyfriend and I aren’t super into Valentine’s Day, so this is the greatest idea for a gift that isn’t over-the-top!
