having a date night

You’ve probably seen one of those cute date night jars on Pinterest or Facebook. You know the ones… where it has little popsicle sticks with date night ideas jotted down on them and stuff. It’s a great, little idea for couples that are a bit indecisive.

If you’ve never made a jar for date nights then this is totally your jam.

How to Create a Date Night Jar

The actual jar is about as simple as it gets.

Though, you can get really creative with its design!

1. The first step is to gather all of the materials that you will need for your date night jar. This includes a large Mason jar, popsicle sticks, pencils, and paper.

2. Next, you will want to brainstorm some fun date night ideas. Be sure to include a variety of activities that both you and your partner will enjoy.

3. Once you have a good list of ideas, it’s time to start filling up your jar! Write each date night idea on a separate popsicle stick and then place them in the jar.

4. Now comes the fun part… choosing your next date night! Whenever you and your partner are feeling indecisive, simply reach into the jar and pick out a stick. Whichever activity is written on that stick is what you will do for your next date night!

5. Enjoy your time together and never be bored again!

Some recommendations I have when creating a date night jar is to use one of the larger mason jars you can find online or locally. One of those big, 32oz mason jars. That way you can keep adding tons of things to it as you go!



A larger jar also means you can do something other than the usual popsicle sticks. I’ve seen something similar but with little wooden hearts. Super cute!



You can also do a lot of cool things with the decorations whether that’s adding some ribbons or strings, or adding a touch of paint.

Cool, right?

You could also paint some of the thingies you put into the jar, too. This could even be color coordinated by type of date. Or, just whatever you want to give it that unique aesthetic that the two of you love!
