Valentine’s Day Gift: Date Night Promise Bouquet

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and I have the perfect gift idea that keeps on giving all year long. Sparkly jewels and long stemmed roses are great, don’t get me wrong, but this Date Night Promise Bouquet will have you and your love having fun all through 2017.

Your bouquet can be whatever you like from lilies to sunflowers, even the classic roses.  I went with my favorite flower, the tulip (aren’t these just so lovely??)  A dozen is already the typical bouquet size, but it also represents the 12 months of the year.  This brings up a fun possibility of the date night gifts being spread out one a month – you could even assign the month on the tag.

Step 1: brainstorm and write down your date night ideas, allowing space for cutting.

Step 2: laminate your date night sheet – this will keep them safe all year long.

Step 3: cut out your date night strips.  I used a paper cutter for ease and uniformity.

Step 4: punch a hole into one end of each date night strip and thread twine through.

Step 5: secure date night tags to flower stems (don’t cut off the flower’s circulation) with a simple bow.

Add your flowers to a water-filled vase…

… and top with a Hallmark Signature Valentine’s Day Card! These are premium, handcrafted greeting cards that are guaranteed to wow your significant other. How amazing is this bow and arrow card I found?

Finding the right card can be difficult.  I’m totally the person that stands in the card aisle at Walmart for an hour, picking up, opening and putting back 100 cards before I decide on the right one.  Walmart has a HUGE selection of Hallmark Valentine’s Day cards and some of the best are sitting right in the “Hallmark Signature” section.  Make sure while you’re there to snag the in-aisle coupon offer – $2 off a 2 card purchase (min $2 purchase required) which expires 2/15!  Now is a great time to stock up on Valentine’s Day cards!

You can keep it simple and gift your awesome Date Night Bouquet now, or mix the tulips in with another flower.  This way, discovering the upcoming dates is a bit like a treasure hunt!  The other flowers also give you a chance to add a pop of color.

Having some trouble brainstorming?  Here are 20 Date Night ideas:

  • wine tasting
  • casino night
  • night at a comedy club
  • bowling with beer and pizza
  • visit a carnival
  • a night of stargazing
  • tarot card reading

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
