Monday Giveaway!

Monday, January 14, 2013

I think it would be safe to say that Jared and I have been in a dating desert the past couple of months. I think the combo of having a newborn, him being in grad school, our budget, and the fact that babysitters in these parts start at $3 over minimum wage has really put a damper on our one-on-one time out of the home. Our quality time together has gotten really creative lately with things like playing mad gab, a couple rounds of egyptian war, and build your own pazookies. However, I recently found a way to bring a bit more pizzazz by creating one of these dating books from datevitation!

Datevitation is a creative platform designed to help you build a custom love coupon book. This isn't a pre-packaged deal, folks. You get to pick the dates and customize the text to your liking. Having trouble thinking of unique and fun date ideas? Datevitation's library provides over 200 romantic date ideas, allowing you ample ways to get create new memories with your significant other. I had such fun scrolling through the variety of themed dates presented to me when I made my custom book for Jared. I loved that I was able to find a spectrum of adventures that fit our interests and that I was able to even tailor them by inputting my own text with inside jokes and making it more personal.

Once you are done customizing the text in your book, Datevitation will print it out and ship it to you in a ready-to-gift box. Books normally start at $20, but for the month of January, Datevitation is offering Little Almanac readers $10 off your purchase! That means you can get your sweetheart a custom love coupon book for Valentine's Day starting at just $10! Just use the code "ALMANAC" at check out!

Today Datevitation is offering one lucky reader a $20 voucher to begin creating his/her own free coupon book with 5 customizable dating pages**! Again, with Valentines Day around the corner, I can't recommend this more if you are looking for a fun way to surprise your better half!

  1. The mini-golf date sounds perfect to me. We used to go all the time, since the place is just down the street. You should have seen Dave picking up and setting up my golf balls for me when I was nine months pregnant! However, we haven't gone since Annaleigh started walking. I can't wait until they open for the season. We're hoping to take her at an off, uncrowded hour and let her knock a ball around with one of their mini clubs while we play. We'll see how that goes!

  2. What a cute idea! I liked them on fb!

  3. These books are so cute! I like the orchard date idea. We just love being outside and doing things that aren't an everyday occurrence.

  4. I've seen these before! What a lovely idea.
