All you’ll need to recreate this date jar idea is a mason jar, paper, pen, and a few clutch date ideas.
Here are a few of my favorite date night ideas in case you need a little inspiration:
Take a ballroom dancing class
Cook your favorite childhood food together (instead of the standard dinner date)
Go on a picnic (indoor or outdoor)
Spend an hour brainstorming your ideas of the perfect date – together
Go to a comedy club
Take a cooking class, or recreate a cooking class at home if that’s too pricey
Take a long walk on a hiking trail, or the beach, or a local park
Go to the bookstore – you’ll get to know each other better by noticing what section he’s drawn towards
Visit a local organic farm or outdoor market
Go antique shopping (or window shopping)
Google the places of interest in your hometown and go!
