Do you wish you had more date nights in your life? Do you have too much going on and don’t have time to go on dates?
Date boxes delivered to your house provide the PERFECT SOLUTION!!!
Last year Dave and I decided that we wanted to start putting date nights on our calendar, but were struggling because he gets home so late from work and we have young kids. I started researching and found lots of companies that provide this cool service. I ordered boxes from several companies and wrote a blog about our experience. One of these companies recently reached out to me and asked if I would want to try their new and improved date box (on them) and give feedback. I said sure! Here is my review of Crated With Love.
As usual, we made a big deal about Tuesday evening being date night. This makes it easier for the kids to wind down when we are ready to boot them from the living room so we can start our date.
Our date box was super cute! The theme was “I Love You A Sloth”. It included a Sweetheart Safari guide that explained each step in your date. I like how Crated With Love provides several different activities in each date box.
Activity 1: Our Safari Skills
For this activity we talked about where we are as far as date nights, being romantic, trips we look forward to taking together, and some goals we have for this year.
Activity 2: Lions, Tigers, and Bears
We played a cute game that had different components. Some were silly and some were sweet. I liked how one of the components included coming up with compliments about each other. This may seem cheesy, but sometimes its nice to remember why you like your person.
Activity 3: Jungle River Excursion
For this activity we were given wooden tiles and had to write what we felt were important skills to building a strong relationship. On the other side we wrote words that describe a jungle, but also describe your relationship. This was fun because it got us talking and comparing our answers. I could see how some of the answers could get “spicy”.
Activity 4: Our Goals Journal
We picked out 3 relationship goals that we wanted to accomplish each month over the next 6 months. This was a good activity because it made us realize that we had different ideas and had to come to a compromise that we were both happy with.
Just when you thought you were finished, Crated With Love provides post date night activities! I love that we earned a cute badge that goes into a badge collector page. I also love that we have a cute sloth button that we can take turns hiding.
Overall, I was HIGHLY impressed with Crated With Love! So much so, I have decided to order date boxes for the next 6 months. At $19.99 a month for a box filled with tons of fun things, I feel like it is a great value. For less than $120 (you get a discount for signing up for 6 months) we can have a new “Adventure Themed Date” every month. They also offer a monthly digital subscription for $1.99 that gives you weekly games and challenges to reconnect. Enter coupon code: theskellytwins for a 10% discount!
Date boxes make so much sense for couples who don’t have the time or energy to go out on a date! Grab a bottle of wine, put the kids to bed and reconnect. Some of the activities may seem silly, but overall they provide a chance to have fun and serious conversations.
So there you have it, my honest review of Crated With Love. I’m looking forward to the next adventure and earning another badge! My question for you, who is ready to get back to regular date nights?
