Date-night Delight: Romance Blooms with Subscription Boxes


Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and romance is in the air. Even though romance shouldn’t only be for special occasions or holidays, planning the perfect night out can take the fun out of date night for even the most diehard romantic. Why not leave the planning to someone else?

This is where the date-night subscription box really delivers. For the possible couple-to-be, there are even boxes for first dates that include board games. For the busy couple that’s pressed for time – and maybe running low on ideas – there are several date-night subscription boxes that can make romance effortless.

Ronni Peck, a blogger who writes about marital issues on, featured a roundup of date-night boxes. One of the more popular boxes featured, Datebox Club, focuses on relationship-building skills. Crated With Love partners with different companies each month. Each box contains a “series of cards outlining date activities that are meant to bring you together as a couple. Great for all age couples.” Dates could include dancing, cooking or even crafting projects.

Most services focus on dates that can take place at home but be sure to check with each service before subscribing to see whether they feature date that are outside the home, which might require parents to book a babysitter.

So if your love life is a little ho hum and you want to spice things up, date-night subscription boxes are a way to sweep you both off your feet long after Valentine’s Day.
