Take it from someone who has been there: things can feel a little (or a lot!) anti-climactic after your big day has come and gone. Not to mention, your creative brain cells may be running on empty, especially if you did the majority of your wedding planning yourself. The same may also be said about your bank account. So how do you make sure to keep your relationship strong and close when you are exhausted, broke, or both? Well, my dears, Dating Divas has your back.
In a nutshell, Dating Divas offers DIY printables and projects, for everything from birthdays, holidays, parties, and – you guessed it – couples! Actually, while all of their products are absolutely adorable and unique, they really have a certain flair for helping couples stay connected and engaged. I got the fun opportunity of reviewing two of these neat kits.
52 Date Cards
The 52 Date Cards set is awesome for those of us who want to make a commitment to going on consistent dates with our partner, but lack the creativity, energy, or money to come up with concrete ideas. This download includes 52 different dates, plus 16 bonus dates if some of the original dates aren’t up your alley. For me personally, there were a few that just were a bit too silly for my hubby and I, but with the bonus cards, we had plenty of date options.
Each download of the 52 Date Cards also includes tips for putting your album together, gift tags and instruction card, and blank cards and photo cards. The gift tags were a fun way to surprise my hubs with the kit; they made it look super professional.
Dating Divas recommends adding your date cards into a 4X6 photo album of your choice, like this one, and making weekly date night a priority. Add pictures of you and your sweetie on each date to create a fabulous book of date night memories!
After you download and print, place your kit in a special spot so you don’t forget to utilize this valuable resource. Better yet, try planning out your dates a few months in advance and adding them to your calendar.
Love Letters 2.0
Do you ever have a hard time telling your partner how much they mean to you? It’s like, you have so much love in your heart, but you can’t seem to put it into words. Because of that struggle, sometimes important things go unsaid. The Love Letters 2.0 download eliminates that issue by coaching you through what to say to your love, without making it sound forced, generic, or corny.
These love letter printables contain 12 different scripts – one for each month of the year. In addition, they have included printable stationery and envelopes, which are totally adorable. Plus, they added some bonuses that include super cute mini letter paper, envelopes & postcards.
Consider including your monthly letter in your love’s lunch box or briefcase. Alternatively, sneak one into their luggage when they are packing for a business trip. Of course, you could always mail it to their work like I did. There are tons of great and fun options for surprising them with their love letter or postcard.

Other Unique Options for Couples
Dating Divas has a myriad of other kits and downloads for couples, whether they are newly hitched or have been together for years. These include:
If you are looking for some continued inspiration, consider Dating Divas membership programs. They offer three different options: Diva Central, Marriage Masters, and Reclaim Your Marriage. Regardless of which item you purchase from Dating Divas, I have a feeling you will be just as pleased as I was.
If you are lacking in the printer department – or if your printer is old and expensive to operate – I highly recommend picking up this HP OfficeJet 4650 Wireless All-in-One Photo Printer. It has some of the cheapest ink on the market, without sacrificing quality, speed, or features. Alternatively, you can print your date night or love letter printables directly to your local Staples store.
