Men are hard to buy for. They just are. Perhaps with the exception of the avid fisherman who will predictably be delighted to death at the sight of a new lure each and every birthday/gift-giving occasion.
But for those of us whose significant others don’t fish, here’s a quick and easy idea for you to whip up for you guy:
The $2 Date Bowl
Inspired by The Dating Divas, I made my husband his own bowl for Christmas, and he sure has enjoyed it . All I did was print off several date ideas (maybe 10 or 12) that cost roughly around $2 each onto a piece of computer paper. Then I cut each date idea into a strip, rolled it up with two $1 bills, and tied it with a ribbon. That way, whenever hubby is in the mood for a fun little surprise, all he has to do is pick a scroll, unwrap it, and we both get to enjoy whatever activity he drew out of the bowl!
Some ideas to get you started:
*Enjoy a flick at the Dollar Theater
*Head over to a local bakery to grab two fresh donuts
*A trip to the Dollar Store where each of you picks out a special gift for the other
*Choose a movie from Redbox, and buy a bag of popcorn kernels (the make-your-own-on-the-stove-top kind!)
*A free massage (to be given by you), where he can use his $2 for a “tip”
*A relaxing chat at the coffee shop while you share a cup of the daily brew
You get the idea… There are so many fun little $2 dates you could create. It’s the gift that keeps on giving looong after you give it (say that 10 times fast)!
