The Gift of Dates

No, not the fruit!  When revealing Bill’s favorite gifts, you got a sneak peak at one special gift I made for Bill – a Date night Jar.

I came across a few of them on Pinterest and was particularly inspired by one I saw on Revamp Homegoods.

My parents are big on canning – specifically spaghetti sauce and apple sauce.  So mason jars are usually easy to come by.  The rest of the materials are easy to come by.  Here’s what you’ll need:

  2. Popsicle sticks to label (I actually used pre-painted tongue depressers that were on sale at Michael’s)

I used the 4 colors to signify different types of dates.  Red was for inexpensive plans, yellow for plans that involve travel and time to arrange, green for expensive dates and blue for moderate/medium priced dates.

Then it just came down to coming up with ideas!

What sort of gifts have you made for your honey?
