In April 2012, 7 bridesmaids and I helped to host a bridal shower in which we gave the bride-to-be a gift to last the whole year. Read the opening explanation about “A Year of Date Nights” here.
May 19th marks Allie & Tim’s one year anniversary and of course a super special year in their lives! As this was the last gift in the series, we made sure it was extra special to them.
They have a favorite local Vietnamenese restaurant so we gave them money towards an anniversary dinner. (Gift cards were only good for one year and we gave her the gift too early for that!)
I apologize for my lack of Vietnamese food knowledge. I have learned that they do not typically use these take out containers which are so well associated with Chinese food restaurants. If nothing else, it’s just another super cute (and sparkly!) container for this month’s gift. (I do not mean to offend anyone with this thought!)
And an extra special shout out to Aimee and Micah on their first year anniversary which is also today!!

I have now made this concept into an easy instant download PDF printable that you can grab in my etsy shop to create this Year of Date Nights gift with your fellow bridesmaids!
Also available: Year of Celebrations printable kit! Add any of these 20 tags to sprinkles, cookie cutters or seasonal baking items to give the gift that keeps on giving to a bride-to-be, new home owner or as a white elephant Christmas gift!
Such a great idea, thanks a lot!
