Date nights are crucial if you want a long-lasting and successful relationship. In fact, a recent study by The National Marriage Project showed that couples who have at least one date night per week are happier than those who don’t.
These date nights provide an opportunity for couples to cultivate and maintain the emotional and romantic connection they have with one another. However, life sometimes gets in the way and the romance can get neglected, especially for couples who have been together for a long time.
With kids, work and other crazy things happening, it’s hard to come up with a new and unique activity, week after week. Thanks to the brilliant minds behind subscription boxes, you can now order a “date night in a box.” Yes, there’s a widespread of companies offering fun, creative, romantic and unique date ideas with everything you need, delivered straight to your doorstep. So if you and your significant other are too busy to plan for your weekly date nights, these subscription boxes got you covered. These subscription boxes make great gift ideas too.
The goal of each box is to improve relationship skills through their mystery date activities. Each box has a specific theme every month that offer 4-5 date activities, games or projects that are centered around romance and laughter.
Open up the box and you’ll find out what you will be doing – complete with detailed instructions and all the materials that you will be using. The team behind the box comes up with an activity that will allow couples to experience something new together and make memories that will last forever.
The boxes are designed to help couples do something new and fun together. You and your partner may learn about a new food, do a DIY project or play a game depending on the theme. Every box has a different theme (ex. Travel, food, communication, goals) but are all guaranteed fun.
Unlike the previous boxes, the Date to Door subscription service allows you to get a sneak peek of what’s inside the box. However, you’ll only be able to read through some of the “ingredients” but not the instructions. So basically, the date night will still remain as a surprise.
