We had a HARD time deciding on what we wanted to include in this giveaway. We have SO many favorite things… and we came up with a lot of really great ideas. We then decided that two of our most favorite things were dating our husbands AND saving money… so we decided to share a few of our favorite things that did just that!

{Feel free to click on the titles below to head on over to those original posts.}

#1) “Let’s Talk” Jar - This FUN jar goes along with the “Your Choice, My Choice” date idea! The perfect way to start or END an evening with your sweetheart. Instead of talking about the same ‘ole things… work, bills, stress… why not change things up a bit & use the “Let’s Talk” jar!

#2) “How Do I Love Thee?” Countdown - Who wouldn’t want to read 24 compliments about themselves? This could be the PERFECT countdown to Christmas… or the perfect gift for other couples ON Christmas! Adorable printables included!

#3) Can ‘O Dates - This is the PERFECT Christmas {or bridal or wedding} present for any couple! Extremely easy to put together… especially when you can get all of these adorable printables for FREE right here on our website! A HUGE list of date ideas are provided for you to cut apart & place inside… and the outside of the can is cute enough, that you don’t even need to wrap it!

#4) – Lunchbox Love Notes - This is BRAND-spanking new!! Soon to be a post on our website… this is an adorable addition to anyone’s lunchbox! A darling container FILLED with love notes to sneak into those packed lunches!

#5) The A to Z Guide: 26 Ways in 26 Days to a Happier, Healthier Marriage - Since we can’t come to each of your homes & have a FUN Girl’s Night Out…..we decided to do the NEXT best thing! We’ve gathered our BEST marriage tips – the secrets behind the success in our own marriages and compiled them into a book to share with all of you! A collaboration effort by us, the Divas, we share touching, enlightening, and humorous stories to demonstrate each marriage tip. You will get to see a glimpse inside the marriages of a few of the divas. {Hang onto your hats!} By applying these simple, yet valuable tips, you will start to experience a different, happier marriage right away. This ebook will give you practical tools to literally transform your marriage.

#6) “You’re Appreciated” Seteverything you’ll need to surprise the one you love! Envelopes, cute numbers {the countdown}, & the printables! Check the post out for ALL the details! This is the perfect gift for ANY occasion! One diva surprised her husband on Father’s Day with this idea. Another diva {mwah} surprised her husband on his birthday with this idea! It would work perfectly with any holiday, anniversary, special occasion, OR just because!

#7) Love Journal - Oh, this isn’t just ANY journal – this is a custom-designed vinyl-covered journal! The best part about this? When you & your sweetheart are all done filling THIS journal up… you can slip off the gorgeous cover, place it on a NEW journal & keep going! For journaling ideas, click here, here, OR here!

#8) Emergency K.A.R. Kit- Have you ever been out all day long, shopping, running errands, etc…  All of a sudden you have a big urge to surprise your husband after work with a last minute week day date night or lunch just to realize that you kind of smell stinky and you don’t have time to run home to get ready before his work day ends?  Or maybe you were out for Date Night and chose a restaurant that left you with raging garlic breath, and now what’s a couple to do?!?!?  Having one of these on hand is a MUST!! {BTW – K.A.R standing for Kissing and Romance, of course!}

    best date night ever = a night out to a nice restaurant with my hubbie

  2. Karly says:

    To be sadly honest, my favorite date was NOT with my husband and wasn’t really considered a real date in any terms. My cousin had just turned 16 and was visiting us from England and wanted to go on a double date. I was able to find her a date, no problem. But myself? I ended up talking to one of my best friends, who happened to have a girlfriend and he said he could go with me so it wouldn’t be all awkward. He ended up spending a fortune on me and me and my cousin had a blast. Of course he told his girlfriend how boring and annoying it was. lol We went to a bounce house and to the Japanese place that cooked the food right in front of you. :D With my husband, things always seem to go wrong for us with dates. My husband got strep throat when we tried to spend a couple days away and go to Lagoon. THe next time we tried to get a hotel our toddler burnt her hand on Grandma’s fireplace and that ended in a trip to the emergency room…..yeah, we don’t have good luck! lol

  3. Rebecca says:

    The best date ever was the night we got engaged. We reenacted our first date of riding in a horse drawn carriage around downtown Memphis.

  8. Lizy says:

    hmmm….a weekend in Boston…the sights, the food, the snow and cold…it was one of the sweetest things anyone has done for me!

    My first date with my husband! He took me out to a nice dinner and then had a whole evening of “sight seeing” to do. It was so cute and I was so impressed with the time and effort he had put in to make our first date special! So glad I found him!

  19. Jennifer Barker says:

    Road trip with no specific plans or destination in mind- drove along the coast until sunset then stopped at the closet inn. Wonderful!

  20. Gabby says:

    Best date ever was my first date with my husband (he wasn’t my husband at that time) he did all the right stuff and boy could he dance! I was hooked from then!!! Married now:)

  21. Christie p says:

    I love my husband of 23 years so would love to win this basket.

  22. Janele says:

    We have made a point to have monthly date nights (once we found a babysitter!). I have also shared the Dating Divas website with my hubby so he can “plan” a date or two as well. As well as date nights w/the hubby, we make a point to have one on one dates w/each kiddo too!

  23. Cara says:

    Last year for our anniversary I took the hubby to ipix in Scottsdale – swanky dinner and movie joint. i am not creative and I was quite proud of myself for coming up with such a unique date!
