Date Night In Box
“Fall in Love”
I’m not going to sugar coat it, when I saw that this box was available to review with A Year of Boxes I jumped at the chance! I had been seeing this company advertise on Facebook, Instagram, and even on Twitter. I LOVED the idea of having a cozy date night in with my honey.
We were finally able to have a night in last night and this was his and my experience.
The box was beautifully created! I love the fact that their box design is something new each month and it fits with the theme that they have chosen. This was the Fall in Love box and I couldn’t have loved it more. It was so thoughtfully curated. The little newspaper that came with it was just as aesthetically pleasing as the box. It had tips, tricks, and ideas for things to talk about with my boyfriend, Aaron.
There were two different crafts that we could do as a couple. The first one was creating a candle. This is something that Aaron and I have tried before just by ourselves. So I knew that we would have fun doing this.
I had went to the store before Aaron got home and bought stuff to make dinner. I was craving steak, vegetables, and I bought cheese cake and wine for dessert. Now, there was a suggestion for what to make for dinner which I thought was a wonderful touch!
While making the candle and waiting for it to set they had questions for us to ask each other, “When did you know you fell in love with me?” and “What is a physical feature of mine that is your favorite?” This was so much fun to do. Aaron and I don’t normally talk about things like this, we like to joke, tease, and laugh all of the time. It’s rare for us to have too serious of conversations.
I loved all of the couples that were apart of the newspaper as well. It was fun reading an talking about what others thought about the different topics and questions. I do wish I had remembered the amazing recipe for the Caramel & Chocolate Apple Slices! They looked sooooooo good! But that will just have to wait until next month! I’ll plan better next time.
The next DIY that we created was the Tree of Life. I loved the symbolism in this activity. It compared out relationship to the rings of the tree. We talked about all of the moments in our relationship (2 1/2 years) that were defining. We put our thumb prints in the middle where our relationship started and marked around it different moments that made us fall even more in love with each other.
My MOST FAVORITE activity was actually the Fall in Love Bunco! I loved how much detail they put into creating the game cards and how to play. Every time someone one a BUNCO they had to say something that they loved about the other person. Now, normally Aaron and I have to play games that we are on the same team. We are very competitive people and we just know that we can’t play against each other. Haha! But I wasn’t competitive AT ALL. Look at our scoreboards below.
I DIDN’T WIN ONCE! But I felt like I was winning the WHOLE ENTIRE NIGHT! I loved it so very much. Aaron shows me his love in different ways, cuddling and doing acts of kindness. He is a man of very few words. But every round last night he won and had to tell me things about me that he loved. I almost cried because there were things he noticed and loved about me that I didn’t know I did. I might not have won any of the rounds, but I felt like I won the night!
This box is something that I would purchase every single month. With how much dinner and a movie costs well into $50-70 for a date night out, this box is fantastic in cost savings and brings you closer to your significant others.
$41.99 for each date

I can’t wait to receive next month’s box. Aaron actually had fun last night and he said that he would most definitely do it again with me. It’s makes me giddy just thinking about what the Date Night In crew is putting together for November.
Until next time…
