One of my favorite things to do with someone I’m dating is to go on adventures. The other night, my guy and I spent an hour at Bed Bath and Beyond to find him a Cal King duvet…which were non-existent, only to find out a cal has the same dimensions as a regular king (all the eyerolls). When we eventually found one that wasn’t $200 (and in a pretty cool dark blue shade, I might add), we ended our night at an ice cream sandwich shop that’s known for putting scoops of ice cream between two cookies (or what we did, one cookie and one brownie).
It was a pretty sweet way to end to our evening of adventuring.
In this month’s Date Night In a Box, the theme is “Adventure Together.” The idea behind this theme is that you don’t have to go very far to have an adventure together. I really like how this box can be used either indoors (glamping) or outdoors (more like camping).
Like last month’s guide that came in the form of a newspaper (to go with the brunch theme), this month’s guide is formatted like a little magazine, complete with color pictures and lots of adventure-themed activities, like: a fort building challenge, a stargazing activity, and something to talk about with your significant other (which was my favorite, because it got us talking about more than “how was your day” and “what do you feel like for dinner.”
In this month’s box you’ll find the following:
-a guide, complete with five recipes to make a camping-inspired dinner menu
-a customized Spotify playlist (you can access this on your NIB account online)
-a fun “I Would/I Would Never” game
-a deck of themed playing cards
-a pack of tea lights to set the mood (perfect for a romantic night in the living room, or an outdoorsy evening under the stars
-a stargazing activity
-popcorn on the cob (pairs perfectly with some kisses under the stars)
This month is the perfect compromise for couples that have one party that prefers the finer things in life, like indoor plumbing, and the other that could easily spend forever exploring outside.
If you’re looking for a creative way to get romantic this summer, check out Date Night In Box (and their other boxes if you have kids). This takes the guesswork out of planning a fun date with your significant other, without breaking the bank. As an added bonus, if you’re one of those couples with mini humans, this can be a great option to do in segments throughout the week (e.g. dinner one night, a couple of the activities another night). Plus, you’re never too old to build a pillow fort under the stars…
Thank you, Date Night In, for letting us join in on the fun this month! My guy loved the opportunity to get me outside, and I’ve been inspired to plan a date to our local observatory to get some more stargazing in!
