Valentine’s Day/Anniversary gifts for him: 5 Senses

If you have followed me since January, you saw that I gave my husband a unique gift for our 14th anniversary. It was an Annual Date Night Kit. For February, his gift is a Spa, Movie and heavy hors d’oeuvres Night. I have also decided to incorporate The 5 Senses Gifts. I have not decided on the food yet however I might go with salad, potato and have him grill ribeye steaks earlier in the day.

Just for show, I set it up on our guestroom bed. These are the items that will go inside the bags.

It’s our Anniversary!!! My anniversary gift idea for him.. Annual/Monthly Date Night Kit idea

This year I wanted to give my husband something different for an anniversary gift. I googled a few things and was inspired to create an Annual Date Night Kit. I will present it on our anniversary. There are 13 envelopes. He will open one on our anniversary and the one for January, within the next week. At the start of each month he will open an envelope and determine the date we will host the Date Night.

Some of the supplies used 8 1/2 x 11 AstroBrights colored paper, a 6 x 9 envelope and paper cutter.

The colored paper is a little bit larger than the envelope.

I didn’t have to go out and purchase anything. My daughter gave me three aqua envelopes 6 x 9” and I had colored paper that I cut a little bit larger than the kraft envelope and glued it to the front as well as a I had a liquid glue stick.

I used a variety of stickers that I had from journaling which worked perfect for this kit.

I created a theme for each month as well as a detail card on brochure paper. The card will remind me of the plan and items needed.

I decorated each envelope to match the holiday, if any within the month. I didn’t want to use stickers that would give clues to the actual date night theme. I wrapped some of the envelopes with twine.

I used transparent tape to tape the twine to the back of each envelope just for an added special touch.

Once I placed the Date Night Card and the Detail Card in the envelope, I glued the envelope flap…so no peeking.

He will get to open this envelope on our anniversary, Jan. 19th. It will contain a gift card to his favorite coffee spot.

These were the final envelopes, one for each month.

I had this gold basket and used brown crinkle shredded paper to make it look more masculine.

This is the final with the card in front that he will open on our anniversary.

All packaged and ready for our BIG day!! 14 years

This gift was a huge hit! He said he absolutely loves when I get creative and think outside the box. This was something definitely outside of the box. I pray God allows us to enjoy every Date Night and many more for years to come.

If you would like for me to create a custom kit for you, contact me. The Date Night Kit is $60 (excludes shipping) and comes with everything needed to package your gift. Or you can purchase the monthly Date Night and Detail Cards PDF files for $20

Weekly Scripture(s)

A friend recently shared Romans 12:1-2 with me via text. Something in my spirit lead me to search google and read the entire chapter which has blessed me in so many ways especially this over the past few weeks.

I wanted to read it in plain text so I could understand and let the words meditate on my heart. I seek God and I try to do what is right but some time people will toss you a curve ball. I was faced with a challenge over the last 2 weeks and I had to decide if I was going to do what I would have done “back in da day” or if I would take the road less traveled and allow God to prevail. Thank God for my husband and daughter who shared thoughts from a different perspective. I chose to allow God to prevail and washed my hands of it. So today I am sharing the entire chapter. I hope it bless you as it did me.

12 Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

Humble Service in the Body of Christ

For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you. For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your[a] faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead,[b] do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.

Love in Action

Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. 10 Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. 11 Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. 12 Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. 13 Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.

14 Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. 15 Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. 16 Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position.[c] Do not be conceited.

17 Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. 18 If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. 19 Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,”[d] says the Lord. 20 On the contrary:

“If your enemy is hungry, feed him;
    if he is thirsty, give him something to drink.
In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.”[e]

21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
