It's July, and Christmas in July is totally a thing! Every Saturday this month, I'm going to be sharing some great ideas for gifts to give to your spouse to help you get a head start on Christmas shopping. Because our baby will be born just a couple of months before Christmas, I'm trying to get as much shopping done beforehand so that I only need to wrap everything and can spend my time around the holidays enjoying time with family and snuggling her instead. I figured that I might as well share some of my favorite ideas with you!
Today's ideas come from The Dating Divas! They have so many great things in their shop and they're all downloadable, so you can print them and put them together at home whenever is convenient for you! Plus, they have a great sale going on this weekend only that I didn't want you to miss out on!
Today through July 4th, if you purchase the Intimacy Pack and you'll also get a bonus, giftable binder printable! That's 12, already done for you, date nights that will help keep the spark alive in your marriage! The Year of Sexy Dates printable pack includes sassy invitations, spicy games, darling loves notes and your bonus binder printables! You can see everything that is included in the Intimacy Pack here and purchase the Light Up Your Nights year of dates binder set here. I guarantee that you won't get a year's worth of date nights at this price anywhere else!
If you're looking for more Year of Dates gift ideas, you should also check out the Year of Dates Binder! I purchased this for Joe a couple of Christmas' ago and loved the variety and fun that was included in the pack. Once again, you just have to print everything, put it together, and put it under the tree this year! If you also purchased the Year of Sexy Dates, you'd have two dates already planned for you each month next year for less than the cost of one dinner out! You can choose to purchase the full binder set, which includes dates all planned and laid out for you, or you can purchase just the cute binder printables and fill it with dates of your choosing! Giving the gift of date night is giving the gift of quality time and a stronger marriage. I ALWAYS gift Joe with some sort of date night and they're my favorite kind of gifts to give!
If you and/or your husband are big sports fanatics (this is not Joe and I), you might also want to check out the Year of Sports-Themed Date Nights! Each month's date is centered around a different sport and the pack includes a couple of bonus memory printables to help make your date nights more meaningful! You can check out this post to see which sports are planned for which months and purchase your pack.
If you're into The Five Love Languages, you might love The Five Senses Gift! This gift is customizable and can be personalized to fit the relationship that you and your spouse share! There is something to speak to your spouse's sense of sight, smell, sound, touch and taste. You can check it out in detail here!
The I Love Us Book is one of my favorite, sappy and romantic gift ideas! Putting this together and looking through it often will help you remember why you fell in love, what you love about your spouse and all of those early dating feelings of love that couples say fades over time. I know every time I think back on our love story and the little things that made me fall in love with Joe, I appreciate him so much more and have a renewed sense of urgency to make time with him a priority! Check out the details and get yours here.
If you're an adventurous couple, whether you travel together or go out and do something unique and fun often, you might like Our Amazing Adventure Book! It's so much fun to plan and go on little adventures together, whether it's across the world or in your own backyard. This is a great way to journal and record the memories you make, plus dream about future ones! Check out the details and get yours here.
If you're feeling really ambitious, you could also get your stocking stuffers out of the way with the Ultimate Stocking Stuffer Kit. Stocking stuffers are always my downfall and I usually end up spending more on those than I do on actual presents. There are so many small, expensive items out there. The stocking stuffer ideas that the Divas have are meaningful, simple and fun! I'm looking forward to using these this year!
I am really tempted to get all of Joe's Christmas shopping over and done with this month because I know exactly what I'm going to get him, from his gifts under the tree to his stocking! The only dilemma is that I don't want a few of the edible items in his stocking to be too old, so I'll probably have to make a run to the store the week of Christmas to pick up a few last things. But for the most part, I'm going to be done with my shopping before August is over! I'd be done within a couple of weeks, but I have to budget and watch for a few more deals.
