Date Night Box or Jar

Valentines is coming up! Are you ready? I have a fun idea for your special someone. A date night jar or box. I made a date night box for my sister and her husband for Christmas. Inside the box was a jar with strips of paper with date night ideas on them.

Also in the box, I included different items to help with their date nights. For example, one of the strips said "Play a game", so I stuck in a card game.
You can take this idea and make it as simple or as elaborate as you'd like. I wanted the ideas to be things that would cost little or no money.

Here's a list of what date nights I gathered. For the starred items I also included something to put in the date night box to help accomplish the date.

1 - Play a game  *card game*
2 - Go out for an ice cream cone  *envelope with some cash*
3 - Go on a walk
4 - Play tennis
