Holiday season is upon us and if you’re anything like me, you’ve just started to think about who you will be gifting to this year and what you are going to get them. My favorite gifts to give people are the kind that will leave a lasting memory. This is especially true when I’m thinking of gifts for my husband. Date night is a time when many memories are made and we are intentionally working on our marriage, so a lot of my presents tend to focus on that quality time together.
There are two things that I always think of when gifting someone with season tickets; sports and culture. Maybe the two of you enjoy going to the games of a certain baseball, soccer, football or hockey team. Season tickets, or even just a pack of tickets to go to certain games make a great gift, and they usually cost less when bought in larger quantities. Cultural events like plays, musicals, the opera, the symphony, or comedy clubs also make a great date night. You might also consider purchasing tickets with another couple. We love having those events to look forward to a few times a year and sometimes it is fun having another couple to enjoy them with as well!
Maybe you don’t want to commit to a full season of shows, games or concerts. You may choose instead, to pick a particular game or show that you know your spouse would love to attend, and put together a special date night that includes a meal and really great seats at whatever event you’ll be attending. Watch for entertainers who will be touring in your area, favorite teams who will be playing each other, or something similar that you know your loved one would enjoy. From my experience and other people who I’ve observed, these types of gifts are always received with a lot of enthusiasm and excitement!
A Year of Preplanned Date Nights
If you’re ambitious, and plan well enough ahead, you can gift your spouse with a year of planned and paid for date nights this holiday season. This may require you to spend quite a bit of money up front, so be sure to sit down and plan your activities out early, figure out how much money you need to budget for and watch for deals. I like to plan one date night for each month, and I pick a theme that fits the holiday or season that it falls around. I’ve seen a lot of creative ways of putting this gift together. Some create scrapbook pages for each date, explaining what they will be doing; others throw each date into an envelope and label them. Purchase gift cards or tickets in advance, include a coupon to the restaurant or for the planned activity, put together a game or challenge and write out the instructions, and be sure to include a list of any extra supplies that you’ll need to acquire before the date night happens.
Datelivery Date Night Box
If planning all of those date nights out in advance seems a little overwhelming, you might consider gifting your spouse with a Datelivery box instead. You will receive a fun box full of date night essentials needed for a fun date night at home. The date night will be planned and prepared for you, with possibly a couple of supplies that you’ll have to provide on your own. A Datelivery gift is especially great for husbands or wives who feel overwhelmed by the thought of planning date night, parents who aren’t able to go out on a date very often, or any couple who feels stuck in a date night rut.
The gift of date night is perfect for couples in any stage of life. Your spouse will love receiving the promise of quality time with you and you’ll get the opportunity to strengthen your relationship at the same time. Other loved ones on your gift list will enjoy the gift of date night as well! Whether they’re single, dating, engaged, newlyweds, or have years of marriage under their belt, you can never go wrong
with the gift of date night.
