Date night with your spouse is one of the most important things you can do to cultivate your marriage. So what happens when it’s time for date night and you don’t have any date night ideas? It’s been a crazy week and you forgot to plan your date night. Friday night is here, the babysitter is at the door, and you still don’t know what to do or where to go. Make this cute “date night in a jar” project and never run out of new ideas for spending fun quality time with your husband.

If you aren’t intentional about spending time together, it may not happen.

Date night doesn’t always have to be lavish, expensive, or planned to perfection. Some of my favorite date nights have been times when we choose to snuggle up on the couch and watch a movie. Whether you choose to have a date night once a week or once a month, making time for one another is the most important thing.

This date night in a jar idea is simple to make and can be used whenever you have free time to spend together. Choose your favorite date night ideas, or incorporate new ones you want to give try. Customize your date night in jar project by color coordinating your date options, adding embellishments, or making a particular jar for a special occasion. Below, I list the basic steps to create a simple and easy “date night in a jar”.
