Hi Everyone! In this week’s post I want to share with you a recent anniversary gift I just created, in hopes that it will inspire you for your next anniversary or holiday ๐Ÿ™‚ I recently celebrated my 1 year anniversary with my boyfriend, and I wanted to gift him something meaningful. I decided to create a year of dates gift! I had so much fun creating this as it was completely customizable, and I was able to come up with date ideas that I knew we would enjoy.

Supplies Used to Create The Year Of Dates Gift:

  1. Old Shoebox
  2. Craft Paper
  3. Washi Tapeย 
  4. Papermate Flair Penย 
  5. Specific things corresponding to each date * will differ depending on what dates you include.

Year Of Dates Gift

I’m going to outline the 24 dates I included before, if you decide to recreate this gift feel free to borrow some ideas, or come up with your own that you know your significant other will enjoy! ๐Ÿ™‚

You’re probably wondering why I’m including 24 dates, when the year only has 12 months. That’s because I’ve included 2 dates a month; the first date is something that we can enjoy outside of the house. The second date is something that we can do at home without spending a lot of money!

I created an envelope for each date and inside I wrote down a description of what the date entails. For some of the dates I included things that correspond (face masks for spa date, movie theatre gift card for the movie date) so that we would be more prepared when the month rolls around!
