What's Included with this Printable eBook?
Date nights are incredibly important for maintaining and cultivating fun, connection, intimacy, shared experiences, memories, and so much more. With kids, work, grocery shopping, little league, and everything else that goes on in life… we know how hard it is to make date nights happen.
Even better, on the off chance that all the stars align, childcare is lined up, AND you aren’t too exhausted to leave the house…the question inevitably comes up “What do YOU want to do tonight?” We want to help you solve the dreaded, mood-killing “I don’t know what to do.”… which can often devolve into arguments or exasperation… and no actual date!
This instantly-downloadable packet includes 52 Date Ideas to enjoy with your beloved. There is one date idea for each week of the year… ensuring you don’t run out of possibilities! Some are “standard” [that you may have not tried or forgotten!] and hopefully there are quite a few new, quirky, and memorable suggestions.
These 52 Date Ideas will create opportunities for laughter, discovery, thoughtful discussion, reminiscing, new memories, and all kinds of cuddly or passionate relational intimacy.
Many dates are FREE, while some require planning your cash. There’s lots for everyone. Some of these date ideas will surely surprise you for mutual delight.
If you aren’t interested in a date idea, ignore it, and move on. However, part of the fun is exploring each others’ minds, hearts, curiosities, smirks, and who-knows-what-else through shared, new experiences TOGETHER. Be open-minded!
