Date Night – The Subscription Box

img_5251

Honestly, date nights don’t come so easily to Sean and I. They’re far and few between and often cost more than we can afford! As parents its generally not so easy to find the time, money or babysitters to get in a cheeky date night, and sometimes finding all three can be more stressful than not so my attitude can be a bit ‘Whats the point?’ at times!

If only there were something out there that allowed us to have a memorable, unique date night in the comfort of our home. Something interactive unlike watching movies or a TV series and something affordable so that it doesn’t break our already broken bank!! *sigh*

Sounds like a dream right!? Well we thought so too until we discovered a date night subscription box that delivers you a unique, interactive and totally affordable date night for you to enjoy at home with your loved one!

***

There was a knock at the door, a delivery man handed me a good sized parcel. wondering what it was I ripped open the box in excitement and my excitement certainly didn’t end there… On opening the package there was a slick black box waiting to be admired with the words ‘Date night’ printed in metallic red on top (and thats when I fell in love). I have to admit that I was surprised the date night box was such great quality, sometimes with subscription boxes they come in little cardboard boxes that you don’t think twice about chucking out, but with this I was wondering what we could use it for after serving its sole purpose!

When we delved into our date box we were amazed by how much thought had gone into it, all this just to make sure we have an enjoyable night!? I’m sold! On first glance we spotted a card waiting for us to read, it had both our names printed in big bold lettering making it that more exclusive and personal to us! The card introduced us to the date box getting us super hyped up about what to expect. After reading the card we knew we were in for a treat as we had bagged ourselves a ‘Chocolate Heaven’ date night!! (I know what you’re thinking, whats better right!?)

Our eyes widened, our tastebuds tingled and we were really looking forward to our date, not just because the card explained that the chocolates were an aphrodisiac but that was obviously a plus!! There was another printed card inside, on that were step by step instructions that led us through our date. As we started reading the steps we noticed something at the very top, there was a little surprise for us! It was such a lovely touch, very smart thinking and it really added to our overall experience that night! No, no I won’t reveal what exactly the surprise was you’ll just have to hurry up and get your own!!

All of the activities flowed together really nicely, without giving too much away we both felt as if we’d enjoyed chocolate in a way we hadn’t before and thoroughly enjoyed it! After having such a fun and positive date night experience using our date box we are really keen to try another, I wonder what we’ll get next!!

Your date night doesn’t start and end with the date box its purpose is to add something fun and exciting to your evening, when you’ve completed the box what happens next is up to you, all I know is our evening didn’t stop there!!

    This sounds so good! Me and my boyfriend hardly ever get the chance to have a date night so i may have to take a look at this!

    • cheskaaanels September 2, 2016 / 1:08 pm

      Ahh I feel your pain! This is well worth it thats for sure we had a great time!!

  4. Sarahjane Wood September 2, 2016 / 1:45 pm

    • cheskaaanels September 2, 2016 / 1:59 pm

      It was lovely! I recommend everyone try it even just once!!

  5. Tania Potter - Soul Sense Coaching September 2, 2016 / 3:43 pm

    This is a brilliant idea! Even planning a date night is too much effort when you are tired and stressed and this is the perfect solution. It sounds such fun.

    • cheskaaanels September 2, 2016 / 3:45 pm

      Exactly!! Also Sean and I may not have ever chosen a chocolate date so to be given it and going along with the surprise of what you get given is really handy and actually a lot of fun!

  6. flowerpowerlife September 2, 2016 / 3:43 pm

    This is cute – there’s a subscription box for everything these days!

    • cheskaaanels September 2, 2016 / 3:46 pm

  7. Rhian Westbury September 2, 2016 / 5:13 pm

    Sounds like such a nice subscription box to help you have a date night. Plus anything which has the word chocolate in it is a winner x

  8. Sam | Life As Mrs R September 2, 2016 / 5:31 pm

    Sounds like a super fun box – who doesn’t love chocolate and date night?

    • cheskaaanels September 2, 2016 / 5:32 pm

      Right!? They just go together so well!!

  9. Angela Milnes September 2, 2016 / 8:25 pm

    oh wow I’ve not heard of this product/subscription box before. I bet it would be fun to get.

    • cheskaaanels September 2, 2016 / 8:56 pm

      It really is! And worth a go, they have 50% off your first box at the mo!

  10. Liz Mays September 2, 2016 / 9:08 pm

    This sounds like such a cool way to keep things new and entertaining. I would have definitely been excited about the chocolate.

    • cheskaaanels September 2, 2016 / 11:29 pm

      Oh absolutely! Its a great twist in a date night!

    • cheskaaanels September 2, 2016 / 11:29 pm

      Yes its and unconventional way of dating! So good!

  11. Anamika Ojha September 2, 2016 / 11:52 pm

    I’ve never heard of date box subscription but it sounds amazing!

    • cheskaaanels September 2, 2016 / 11:57 pm

      This is a new company they actually launch in 2 weeks so you can sign up and get 50% off your first box!

  12. The Walking Map September 3, 2016 / 12:15 am

    Well the words CHOCOLATE AND HEAVEN certainly go together!

  13. Barbara Chapman September 3, 2016 / 7:13 am

    I tried this box once but the one I got wasn’t for me because you had to separate and go around town doing a scavenger hunt and we were not into that but yours looks cool.

    • cheskaaanels September 3, 2016 / 9:15 am

      Well this is a new company that doesn’t launch until 2 weeks I don’t think it could have been this company that you tried, these ones are certainly worth it though and they are to do at home!

    • cheskaaanels September 3, 2016 / 9:16 am

      Me too! I’ve wanted a subscription box for a while but as there are so many its hard to choose!

  14. cattitudeandco September 3, 2016 / 12:11 pm

    I love these kind of subscription boxes, I have a few ‘adult’ ones myself.

    • cheskaaanels September 3, 2016 / 12:28 pm

      I’ve seen some of the adult ones out there and I’m quite keen to try some!

  15. Tanya Brannan September 3, 2016 / 12:37 pm

    What an absolutely fabulous subscription box! I hadn’t heard of it before, but it would be a great one to try out.;.. chocolate mmmmmmmm x

    • cheskaaanels September 3, 2016 / 1:40 pm

      Oh you really should, this is a new company that are due to launch in two weeks so are offering 50% off your first box! Its so worth it even just to try it once!

  16. DecoPix (@TiinaTibs) September 3, 2016 / 2:25 pm

    This is a fantastic idea! There are easily so much expectation for a night like that and it’s already stressful trying to find out how to make it a perfect night, but with a box liek that you just go with the flow tha box is offering.

    • cheskaaanels September 3, 2016 / 2:27 pm

      Exactly that was the beauty of it and it was so nice not having to wrack our brains for a date night idea, all of it was planned for us and it was totally stress free and enjoyable!

  17. Ana De Jesus September 3, 2016 / 3:11 pm

    Ooh I wonder what the surprise was, I am glad that your night didn’t end there, it sounds like the perfect box.

  18. lex September 3, 2016 / 4:09 pm

    sub boxes are always great and fun to have, so yours is a top notch.

  19. Claudia H. Blanton September 3, 2016 / 5:20 pm

    now that sounds like the most interesting subscription box, I have heard off in a long time. Cool, thanks for pointing it out, Blessings!

  20. jenny September 3, 2016 / 6:27 pm

    I love subscription boxes, this one sounds fab!

  21. Rachel September 3, 2016 / 9:21 pm

    • cheskaaanels September 3, 2016 / 9:48 pm

        Put our order in 🙂 on the list

  23. MELANIE EDJOURIAN September 3, 2016 / 10:59 pm

    This sounds great, we rarely get date nights, who wants to look after three kids!!!

    • cheskaaanels September 3, 2016 / 11:02 pm

      Yeah I feel your pain we have 2 under the age of 5, finding babysitters is hard!

  24. Ivelisse Estes September 4, 2016 / 2:19 am

    This sounds fun! I would love to see pictures of your next experience with the box.

    Love,

  25. hannahhowell912 September 4, 2016 / 10:56 am

    What a cool idea for a subscription box this is!

  26. Elizabeth O. September 4, 2016 / 3:23 pm

    Sounds like an awesome box for married couples that needs a little push for date night. I’m glad you enjoyed all the items that you got!

  27. Zoë IKIWN September 4, 2016 / 4:08 pm

    This looks like such a great idea for a subscription box, the little personal touches like having your names printed on the cards is really thoughtful too. x

    • cheskaaanels September 4, 2016 / 5:34 pm

      Yeah I was so happy about it!! We really enjoyed it!!

  28. Annie B September 4, 2016 / 9:56 pm

    A clever idea for couples! Keeps it all interesting without having to pre plan it – its all done for you!

  29. jennifer L September 5, 2016 / 4:19 am

    That’s a really cool concept. I wonder if they have something like this in the states.

    • cheskaaanels September 5, 2016 / 8:09 am

      Ooo I bet there is! Give it a quick google search 🙂

  30. fashionmommywm September 5, 2016 / 12:01 pm

    Love the idea of this as real date nights can be hard when you have to get a sitter etc.

    • cheskaaanels September 5, 2016 / 12:03 pm

      Yes absolutely! It takes away all the stress and having to plan everything!

  31. TheLondonMum September 5, 2016 / 12:53 pm

    Sounds amazing. It’s great for those couples especially that struggle to get that time for date night. x

  32. Emily September 5, 2016 / 1:59 pm

    This really is such a fantastic idea for couples! It can be hard deciding what to do and this subscription box is such a help, what a unique subscription box!

    • cheskaaanels September 5, 2016 / 2:01 pm

      Absolutely! We struggle to figure out what to do sometimes especially on a budget it can be really hard to find something so this was perfect for us!

  33. Amanda Love September 5, 2016 / 3:48 pm

    Keeping the fire burning when you’re married is important and it’s good to mix things up a bit with subscriptions like this! I’m glad you had an amazing time with each other.

  34. Lubka Henry (@lu_christova) September 6, 2016 / 9:23 am

    I have never thought of subscription boxes for a date night, but it sounds very exciting! Love the idea of the chocolates 🙂

    • cheskaaanels September 6, 2016 / 10:34 am

      I know I was pleasantly surprised when we discovered them!

  35. Amy September 6, 2016 / 10:56 am

    You actually have me sold… I really want one!! What a great idea – and it sounds like a lot of thought and effort was put into the box too.

    • cheskaaanels September 6, 2016 / 11:01 am

      Oh it was so much fun and I was literally shocked to see how much effort went into it, it really was an enjoyable experience!

  36. martinawilliamss September 9, 2016 / 3:06 pm

    I am intrigued, as you didn’t give us many details, except the chocolate. I am very curious what the box had inside it and how the date continued, what special little surprises you got there. I guess that’s part of the surprise, now knowing what to expect. 🙂

  37. Anvita September 9, 2016 / 9:55 pm

    Sounds like a fun date night. If just there was something similar in the US

  38. Stephen September 14, 2016 / 2:23 pm

    Definitely an interesting concept for a box and it sounds a lot of effort has gone into it!

  39. Kira C September 14, 2016 / 4:16 pm

    I don’t currently live with my boyfriend, instead we live about an hour away so it would be nice to have something like this for when we get together!

  40. LaaLaa (@LaaLaaMonroe) September 15, 2016 / 8:24 am

    Oh love it, I like that there’s so many subscription boxes out these days. This one sounds good and something new and fresh to do without breaking the bank. Glad you both enjoyed it x

    • cheskaaanels September 15, 2016 / 8:39 am

      Exactly! Definitely worth it if you usually spend so much on a date night out!
