And there’s no better way to spend a sunny day than having a picnic! Don’t deny it, you’ve always wanted to be part of a legitimate picnic. To make it even more personal, try baking a little treat (cookies, cupcakes, etc…), or making/buying your date’s favourite food. This will be an unforgettable, “dreams-come-true”, kind of date.

If you’re looking for an affordable gift, Count On Me has the perfect idea for you! Fill a mason jar with little notes of things you love about your significant other. This is a really simple, but incredibly thoughtful present. Make sure to not be too generic though; write things that are specific to him/her. For example, instead of saying “you’re really funny”, write down a little quirk about them that always makes you laugh. This shows that you’re really paying attention, and that you care for them. Really try to show your personality.
Things to decorate the Jar (ribbons, stickers, etc..) .. Be creative!
