Looking for a fun creative easy to put together Wedding Gift?
Just over a week ago my brother told me that he was in desperate need of a wedding gift for a friend of his getting married later that evening. (cutting it close right? That’s brothers for you.) Thankfully, I was already heading to the store to get the items I needed to assemble one of my favorite Bridal shower/wedding gifts for my cousin’s Bridal shower the next day. I told him it would be no problem to put together two gifts instead of just one. What was the gift? A Date Night (hopefully the first of many that they will enjoy in married life) on me.
Before we got married to my husband and I were advised by more than one person (all of who had been married for several years) to make sure we made it a priority to go on regular dates with each other. Having been married for almost 8 years now I have come to see the wisdom in this council. Dating helps you to stay connected with your spouse ,keeps the romance alive, and really helps to strengthen your relationship. And yet it is soo easy to get caught up in busy life (especially once school starts) that dating becomes forgotten. This is why my date night care packages have become my favorite go-to gift for loved ones getting married.
What is typically in one of my Dinner Date Night Gifts?
- A package of Pasta
- A Bottle of quality Pasta Sauce
- a Chocolate Treat
- A Bottle of Sparkling Cider
- 2 Champaign glasses.
I like to switch up the kinds of pastas, sauces, chocolate treats, and Sparkling Cider Flavor depending on who is getting married. However, the basics stay the same. To give my gift that extra touch I pulled out my Cricut Explore Air and Gold Vinyl and Cut out a simple MR & MRS to put on the glasses. I used the Easton Font available in Cricut Access on their Design Space. You can access my Design Space Canvas HERE. After I cut out the letters I just placed them on the glasses by hand (I don’t often use transfer paper for something this small unless it is a lot more intricate.)
I have to say, that I am very happy with how this gift turned out. While sometimes I will display the Dinner Date Night Gift in a Basket for the full effect, in this case, I used a pretty Gift bag I bought on sale at Target and some white tissue paper.
All in all the gifts took me just 15 minutes to fully assemble and cost less than $20 each!
