Gift Idea:: The 12 Daytz of Christmas


I ran across this idea earlier today and I just had to share.  Our friends over at the Dating Divas have come up with a rather unique idea for a Christmas gift this season that could really mean a lot to your spouse or dating partner.  While I’m not a big scrapbooker, I absolutely believe in the idea of PLANNING and getting your date nights scheduled, so much so that its part of The Fifth Commandment of Dating.

Now, generally speaking, I hold to DateNights happening at least once a week and are usually planned by the guy.  For that, I believe this gift idea can be utilized by either Men or Women and here’s how:

MEN:: I realize that sometimes once a week can be tough to go out on the town, especially if you have kids or funds are really tight- or both: to which I say, get creative and make it happen.  But if it can’t, at least once a week, make sure you’re grabbing some couch time for a couple hours and spend that time with the TV off and the kids not around, and be connecting.  Here’s the kicker- those can count as DateNights.  If that’s the situation you find yourself in, then perhaps you would benefit from a Special DateNight once a month- you know, those times when you get a babysitter, save up some cash like you did in high school, and then go out.  So how about for Christmas, you plan out 12 dates, one for each month. -OR- If you already have a weekly DateNight, how about 12 of those become “special” DateNights, and I’ll let you decide what the word “special” means to you in your context.  But You’ll have to go to the Dating Diva’s site how to make the gift.

WOMEN:: It is no easy task to be the one who is always planning out the DateNights (not easy, but still a joy).  How about giving your man the gift of a break, when you step up and take the reigns once a month to plan the DateNights.  There are so many benefits to you planning the DateNights, but mostly it gets you involved in this aspect of the relationship and even gives you a bit more investment.  It would be a great gift.  And again, you’ll have to head over to the Dating Diva’s to see how to make the gift.

Give the gift of Dating this Christmas.  And if you have any ideas how to tweak this or customize this for yourself, be sure to leave a comment and share with the class!
