Christmas Idea!

So I stole this from my sister. I thought it was super CUTE!

This gift is called "The Date Basket"

The idea of it is to have pre-paid or easy to
pay for dates pre-packaged in envelopes,
then labeled for every month :)

So at the beginning of each month,
Nate will open the envelope for
that month then we will choose
a day for that date night.

Each envelope has a cute little card
explaining the date as well as the
gift cards to pay for the date :)

Here are my list of dates to give you
some ideas

January: "Go Big or Go Home"
Let's go to Dinner and a Movie
Your Pick :)
