I mentioned last week that I had a bigger project using the 100+ Date Ideas post that went up last Wednesday. You’ve seen the “Open When…” letter idea, right? I first saw the idea as something to include in a care package of a deployed soldier and thought that was such a great idea! What a great way for them to have a stash of letters they can pull from whenever they need a little dose of home. Had Mr Napping ever deployed, I would have probably done something very much like this idea. We’ve done long-distance and it’s rough!
It has since become a gift idea, even for couples that aren’t apart, that keeps showing up in my Pinterest feed (let’s be friends! Follow me for more great inspiration). I liked the idea, but my awesome honeyman is not so great at using those kind of gifts and I’m bored of giving gifts that get stuck in a corner or drawer or where ever the most recent stash/hiding place is. So, I never did it.
OPEN WHEN… DATES
A Year of Dates
But, I still liked the idea and every time it showed up in my feed, I liked it all over again. Then I had the thought to turn it into a date night kit, with printables, of course! So, you can head over to Ask Anna and get all the details there. It’s the beginning of another month, and I’m over at Anna’s again. Come check out how you can make A Year of Dates printables kit (hello, Valentine’s Day gift!) and get everything you need to put your own kit together. It’s easy to put together and easy to customize, so there’ll be no lame dates you really don’t want to do. Who doesn’t want a year of pre-planned dates at the ready? So, whatcha waiting for? Go check it out!
