This creative date night idea will be incredibly easy to plan. Hand your spouse an envelope with choices and let them pick what you two will do for date night. We’ve taken the pressure of planning date night for you. What’s even better, these date ideas are dates your spouse will love!

Let Your Spouse Choose Date Night

Do you have a spouse who doesn’t take the initiative to plan date night? If so, you know how much blood, sweat, and tears goes into planning date night. One of the biggest worries is if your spouse is going to like what you’ve planned. Trust me I’ve been there and I feel ya! This is the exact reason why I love this date idea!!! 

Remember the Choose Your Own Birthday Date and Choose Your Own Adventure Date if you loved those ideas, you are going to love this date idea because it’s another choose your own twist. 

I’ve taken the fuss out of date night planning. On top of that you’ve hit the jackpot…You’re not just getting one amazing date idea but FOUR! And there’s more…You can do this date over and over again without doing the same date more than once! You are welcome!

Date Night Preparations

Spouse's Choice Date Night Printables

Look at those gorgeous printables! They are designed by Kristin with C Dot Love, isn’t she incredibly talented?! Take a peek at her page and you’ll see why I love her soo much!

You can’t tell me you’re not excited about this date night!!!

So how do these fabulous printables work? You need to print them out to find out, kidding. But seriously you need to print them out. Print out the inserts and envelope pdf’s. Simply cut the inserts out. Now follow the directions on the pdf’s to make your super cute envelopes. 

There are four different sets of envelopes one for the morning, afternoon, evening, and bedroom. Each category will contain two inserts with 3-5 different choices of activities to do during those hours. There are also 1 blank insert per category for  you to personalize with your favorite ideas. 

You can use the inserts and envelopes several different ways. First choose which date you want to do, morning, lunch, evening, or bedroom. Then either place:

1. one insert into each envelope. 

2. two inserts into each envelope. 

3. all 3 inserts, including the blank one that you personalize, into each envelope. 

Once you have chosen the insert(s) and envelope, you’ll need to decide how you want to prepare this date. You can either: 

1. Give envelope and insert to your spouse the week prior to date night. Give them one day to choose which date they want to do. Once they’ve chosen, head back here and grab all the printables and ideas you need to pull off your date. 

2. Give envelope and inserts an hour or so before the date. Together grab all the needed items and ideas from our site and prepare your date together. 

The choice is up to you. Regardless of what you choose to do, save the inserts and envelopes for future dates. You have 9-15 possible dates per category, awesome!!!!!
