Datevitation: Keeping Relationships Fun! #Review #Giveaway

Date nights? Some days I feel like what is that???
It is so hard with children to keep date ideas fun and exciting. Date nights become non existent at times and we both hate that. It is so important for us to keep our relationship strong, not only for ourselves but also for our children. Coming up with fun and new date ideas can be so hard! I like to be creative with my husband and surprise him with something new and different.
Have you ever made homemade date night coupons?
Several times I have made my own “coupons” for date ideas to give to my husband on special occasions. They can be fun, exciting, different or romantic but any way you look at it, the date coupons add that extra element of excitement to date night!
Datevitation is the first online platform to create your very own personalized love coupon book. No more pre-packaged, generic love coupon books. Datevitation allows you to fully customize the dates, text and design. You can choose from over 500 date ideas!! There are so many date night ideas ranging from a walk, picnic, restaurant to skydiving – I had so much fun choosing the date options for our special book.
One of the neatest parts of this site is that you can even insert your own faces into the coupon book. I had so much fun at this part – you add in the face of your recipient (in this case my husband) and choose their hair style and colour. There was definitely a great variety of hair styles to play around! This was the perfect way to personalize our love coupon book just for us and add a little more excitement to date night.
The date ideas are not just limited to couples though. As many parents have experienced (and we found out quickly with the birth of our second son) it is so important to schedule regular “date” nights with your children for quality one on one time. They don’t have to be expensive date ideas but as simple as baking together or going to play at the park together. These moments are so important in all the chaos that is life – a great way to catch up on all the things that are going on in your child’s life.


Datevitation was created by the husband-wife team of Alex and Olga Karpman. They have a great blog where you can get to know more about them, go through great date ideas and ideas to keep romancing blooming. I loved their post on how to create a gourmet meal for your significant other when you can not cook, check it out here.

Date Night!

My husband and I went out on our first date night in over two years! I shudder at the fact that it has been two years since we have last gone on an ‘offical’ kid free date but it was a long time coming and greatly needed.
I have to admit I had some pretty serious jitters getting ready to go out. Odd thing to have had happen! It was the first time I was leaving my fifteen month alone at night and on the weekend. On top of that, I was nervous of what I was going to talk about with my hubby (weird isn’t it – we spend every day together talking about the kids, what we need to get done but never really talk about us and how we’re feeling with all the spiralling changes and challenges).
It turned out to be a great night! We headed out to Montana’s and enjoyed a delicious dinner of ribs. Our conversation strayed occasionally back to our kids but I found out so much about him and how he has been feeling since I have gone back to work and vice versa. I really feel like it helped our relationship as husband and wife. We made a promise that we would no longer let it get to years before we go out on a date again. We have actually set our next date night for next month! Any one have some tips, exciting places to go or fun ideas for dates?
