Over the summer I began swapping childcare with a mom who lived nearby. One of the swaps we do is for a date night, about once a month. The first few months it was enough to just have a meal together and hang out... but now that we've been doing this consistently for several months, we need to mix things up and make them more interesting for both of us. It is just too easy to let all of the conversation be about things that we need to talk about, like the children, budgets, or our schedule for the coming week.
Inspired by a good price on Arts Cow playing cards, I decided to create a set that we'd be able to use for playing games on our date nights. The first date night we use them might be the most fun though, because I designed these cards with room to write on the back of them.
I intentionally tried to keep the cards masculine so my husband wouldn't mind using them. This would also be a fun gift to make for your children too and that opens up a much broader range of design possibilities.
EDIT: A clever friend of mine who will remain nameless was inspired by the idea and made these cards as a surprise 40th birthday gift for her husband:
