"Date of the Month Club" Christmas Gift - Now Taking Orders!

I am now taking orders for customized "Date of the Month Club" kits!!

If you weren't a follower of this blog or Life. Design. and the Pursuit of Craftiness last Christmas or Valentine's Day, allow me to introduce you to a one-of-a-kind homemade Christmas gift. Perfect for your husband, wife, boyfriend, girlfriend, or fiance, it's a gift that lasts throughout the year!

Enroll him (or her) in the Date of the Month Club!

(this is the Valentine's Day Version, all assembled... of course, yours will be the Christmas Version as shown below

I designed this kit to fit inside a small box (mine is a Godiva Chocolate box). (When you purchase the kit, I will send you the JPEG files so you can size the kit pieces larger or smaller depending on the size of your box.)

Here's an up-close look at each part of the kit, which could be customized for YOUR sweetheart, of course!  You'll receive the DIGITAL kit by email (no physical product will be shipped to you!)

First, the tag for the box:

then.... The Membership Enrollment Card:

 then....the "Date" Calendar Cards
Explanation: (You'll give your Valentine a list of 12+ dates on this card. A few more than 12 would be nice. Keep in mind, these don't all have to be fancy dates from Love Actually Blog. Guys like simple dates, too...like, throwing a frisbee at the park. Put some of his interests in there as dates with you. Then, he will choose which date he wants for which month. Then, it's up to you keep that card and plan those dates each month (Hence, "date of the month club")


Explanation: Give at least 2 vacation cards, but only give as many as you can handle having to plan throughout the year! (remember--these don't have to be REAL vacations...they can be "homestyle vacations" or recreations like mine).

then.... the Romance Reward Tickets
Explanation: These are "love coupons" of sorts...the trick is actually honoring them when he/she decides to use them throughout the year--no backing out! And, make sure you really personalize them (make them lovey-dovey, sexy, or whatever you want...well, whatever your valentine wants, that is!)

Finally, add your Hershey Kisses Tag with a baggie of chocolate kisses (each redeemable for the real thing...a kiss!)

And there you have it! A year's worth of romance and fun....all tied up with a bow under the tree!

(again, this is the Valentine's version pictured above...but you get the idea)

You can have a fully customized version of this kit for

Custom options include:
- Specific names on the To: and From: lines on the box tag
- Adding a name after "Congratulations" on the Membership Enrollment Card
- Your choice of 2 different Vacation Cards and related image (you can use the ones I gave for examples or your own!) Colors of text customizable. (each additional @ $2 each)
- 5 different Tickets with wording of your choice (each additional @ $1 each)
- the Kisses bag tag will be as shown

If you would like further customization, I'd be happy to let you know if it's included with the package or if it will be an additional cost.

How to Order:

I borrowed this idea and made one for my husband for our 4th wedding anniversary and I just wanted you to know it totally changed things for us! We will now be celebrating our 7th anniversary next week. Before, we would go on a couple of dates in a whole year and now we have at least one monthly. The first year I made it exactly how you did, but since then I haven't made it so elaborate. We have 4 kids now 5 yrs and under and really and it is hard to find time to go on a date, but you have great ideas for even home dates. This kit truly helped us establish the idea that we must try and do at least 1 date every month. We have done so many different ideas of yours and it really does help to come up with the schedule of dates for the whole next year at the start of every year! My hubby probably thought I was being silly the first year I put this together, but the last 2 yrs he has even been excited to plan a couple of his own dates which have been really fun to see his creativity. I just really wanted to thank you for all your great ideas, we have continued to have a lot of fun dating in our marriage in the past 3 yrs & hopefully we have an eternity more of it!

Best to you all! Thanks again.

Let's take a brief tour of the hair follicle with explanations in layman's terms, given the fact that few of us have taken medical studies.The tour starts at the outer layer of skin called the epidermis which in turn has three keranique reviews layers starting with the germinative layer at the bottom, the granular layer above, and finally the cornified layer, the part which is visible.

The nerves running through the thoracic area of the spine control the stomach functions and can cause these and other digestive disorders. When a chiropractor adjusts your spine, the nerve flow to the stomach is aligned which helps improve your digestion.
