Date Night Boxes

Step Right Up Folks! To A Carnival Date Night At Home! w/Crated With Love

Before we dive into our carnival date night adventure – quick question:

You’re on Instagram, right? I mean, it’s pretty much my favorite social media option out there currently. Yeah, yeah, there are plenty of overly-staged and unrealistically bright imagery from self-proclaimed ‘influencers’ over there. But, beneath all that? The accounts that are actually real? And authentically inspiring? That give you a peek into the lives of other people out there in the world, and make you feel connected to all humanity through these frozen moments in time?Β 

That’s what I love about Instagram.Β  Read more…

How to Spice Up Your TTC/Postpartum/Pregnant Sex Life With The Fantasy Box

KP and I have been The Fantasy Box customers for years, and more recently began occasionally reviewing their boxes. I was extremely excited when I recently found out their recent line of boxes geared specifically for those couples wanting to spice up their TTC, postpartum and pregnant sex life!Β 

I’ve mentioned this a few times elsewhere, but it took KP and I two years of TTC (trying-to-conceive) before we conceived our first child.

Let’s talk about TTC for a moment. Read more…

Crated With Love & WeCraft Subscription Box Staycation Date Night & Kids Box

This month though – I had a surprise for them. Not only did I get a date night box for their dad and I to do, but I also got a box for the KIDS and I to do together!Β 

Crated With Love (one of my most favorite date night subscription box options) recently teamed up with a company called WeCraft to offer what they’re calling their “Staycation” package. For $50 you get BOTH subscription boxes – a Subscription Box Staycation ….aaand….wait for it…you ALSO get $20 in gift vouchers toward the two companies to use for future boxes! I do a cost breakdown at the bottom of this post so you can see how awesome of a deal this is. In the meantime, check out all the fun we had on our ‘subscription box staycation’: Read more…

Wondering Which Date Night Subscription Box is Right For You?

Once upon a time, when I first started reviewing date night subscription boxes there was like 3 options out there. Slowly, over the past couple of years new subscription box services have popped up everywhere! If you’re currently trying to decide which date night subscription box is right for you, let me help you know where to start!

My husband and I have luckily had the chance to try out MANY of these night box services out there over the years, and here are my suggestions based on your unique relationship level & ages. Be sure to click over to my Date Night Box Listing page for more details and reviews on each! Read more…

A New Kind of Date Night At Home – Crated With Love’s New “Story Mode” Subscription Box

Fun fact: I consider myself THE primo connoisseur of date night at home subscription boxes. πŸ™‚ I wasΒ  the first person posting about them online in 2015 and I’ve come to get to know most/many of the larger companies that provide these boxes. It’s a silly thing to toot my own horn about, but still, it’s one thing I like being known for.Β 

Before I get into this box review below, let me tell you a bit about the company Crated With Love. A loooong time ago, they were called Date In a Crate and they were one of the very, very first date night subscription boxes to come out on the scene. I never had a chance to review any of their very early boxes, but some of the early reviews out there was um, not the best (I’m so sorry CWL; I don’t mean to embarrass you! Follow me on this one, I’ve got lots good stuff to say! πŸ™‚ ).Β  Read more…

May 2018 Date Night In Box Review – Adventure Together

If you read my Date Night In review post from last month, one of the things I regretted is not looking at the suggested recipes beforehand or incorporating a meal for KP and I into the date.Β 

So this month, I made sure to.

We didn’t have all the ingredients for any of the suggested recipes on hand, but I decided to stick to the theme anyway and go for foil dinners. Because foil dinners remind me of camping as a kid. And they’re delicious.Β  Read more…

April 2018 Date Night In Box Review – Easy Like Sunday Morning

Before I get to this Date Night In box review, I have a confession: every time I hear the song Easy Like Sunday Morning by The Commodores, I think of the movie Baby Driver. If you haven’t seen Baby Driver, I highly recommend. It’s not just a bank heist/car chase movie, it’s got a magical score and every cut is spot on. For real. Here, watch this 6-min opening clip on youtube. You’ll be hooked. Even if you don’t typically like action films (which I usually don’t either). You might even end up buying the soundtrack too.Β 

Sorry, going off on a tangent here. Back to my Easy Like Sunday Morning Date Night In Box Review! Read more…

February 2018 Date Night In Box Review – The Story of Us

It’s been awhile since I’ve reviewed a date night subscription box, and about a year since the last time I reviewed a Date Night In box. So here’s a fresh and updated review for you of their The Story of Us box.

Fun fact: This Date Night In box was the very first package delivered to our new house! It arrived ON moving day, lol, and seeing a piece of mail with my name and the new address made this big move feel all the more legit. πŸ™‚ Read more…

Marriage Intimacy: Boundaries, Comfort Zones, and Date Nights in Bed

KP and I have done quite a few of these boxes over the past couple years and so I’m pretty familiar with how these role cards work by now. Buuuutt…

Can I be honest? I hate to say it, but when I got this Red Party box in the mail and opened it up and read my role card?? I wasn’t sure what I thought about this particular fantasy scenario.Β 

It wasn’t anything bad. It wasn’t past any of my boundaries (more on this later). It just, well, it wasn’t my style. I didn’t think I could pull it off. It was out of my comfort zone.Β  Read more…

Bringing Sexy Back To Your Marriage With The Fantasy Box

I’ve been reviewing date night subscription boxes for awhile now, but if you check out my main listing page… and if you keep scrolling down to the bottom… you might notice this box company called The Fantasy Box. I kind of hide The Fantasy Box away down there so as to not be all – here’s sex! Sex! Sex! Sex! Ha ha. But don’t let its placement fool you – The Fantasy Box provides an excellent service that I highly recommend. I’ve just been a bit shy about putting that right all up in your face.Β 

WEEEEEELL before now that is.  Read more…

Crated With Love Date Night Box Review: I Love the 80s! (Apr. ’17)

Hey – I might be about to go into labor (fingers crossed for any day now! …though I’m realistically not due for another week or two, but still…I can hope…), but KP and I still find time for at-home date nights. Crated With Love again to the rescue! And let’s be honest, I highly doubt we’ll be getting out anytime soon after the birth for an out-of-the-house date night. So really – Crated With Love to the rescue! πŸ™‚

Date Night In Subscription Box Review – March 2017 Pamper Your Love

Two years ago, when I first stumbled onto the concept of at-home date night subscription boxes and put together a blog post listing the ones that I’d found – I had NO IDEA how the post would take off, how many new and exciting date night box companies were in development and how many date night boxes KP and I would be lucky enough to get to try out and review! It’s certainly been fun to see what each date night box service offers and feeling as though I’ve become the “expert” on all things date night boxes, lol.

A few months ago, I stumbled upon a new company, Date Night In, and KP and I finally got a chance to try out one of their boxes. Read more…

Unbox Love February 2017 Review

KP and I have had the great privilege of being able to try out many of these date night subscription boxes over the past year or two. First and foremost, I want to thank all of the date night subscription box companies out there for providing such a service! In the early years of marriage it’s often easy to spend time together as a couple and do regular date nights – but man, as time passes and life changes (especially if/once kids enter the mix), finding time to spend together is a SERIOUS challenge. And getting OUT of the house alone together, for a “proper date”, especially without family nearby, feels almost darn near impossible at times.  Read more…

Crated With Love Review: My Kaizen Crush (Mar. ’17), aka our date night fight

KP and I have been doing the Crated With Love date night subscription boxes for the past several months. I’ve been reviewing them on the blog to help people get an idea about what one of these at-home date night box services are like.

So this past Friday night -after a long week- KP and I sat down to have our date night. Can I be honest? Both of us were exhausted, and probably would’ve preferred to veg out in front of the tv instead. But we’ve been busy and haven’t even had many nights to spend together lately, so out of commitment and obligation, we forced ourselves to set up the date box anyway.

And let’s just say our date night did not turn out as planned.  Read more…

Crated With Love Date Night Box Review: Stuck on You (Feb. ’17)

The other night was Crated With Love date box night here in the Peck household. πŸ™‚ I’ll be honest: it’s lately been really hard for KP and I to manage to spend time together. He usually doesn’t get home until late, I often have to work online in the evenings when he is home, or he has to finish up work on his laptop. When we both actually do have a break before bed, we tend to turn on the tv…and either fall asleep on the couch or take our devices to bed with us and play games or surf online until we do. I know these are not the healthiest relationship habits, and it’s something we need to work on, but after long days it’s a habit we’ve unfortunately fallen into.

So I’m really glad that we’ve had a chance to try out so many of these date night subscription boxes because it’s “forced” us to actually set aside time together, lol. So please know that I don’t just recommend these boxes for other couples, but we actually use them ourselves.  Read more…

Crated With Love Date Night Box Review: FounDATEions (Jan. ’17)

I talk about date night subscription boxes A LOT on my blog…I know. πŸ™‚ For you long-time readers, I hope you’ve had the chance to try at least one of them out by now! However, if this is the first you’ve heard of them -or the first you’ve heard of Crated With Love- let me tell you more!

KP and I have been lucky to test out a a few of the Crated With Love boxes now (so I have a pretty good feel for the product and what you’re likely to get each month). Here is the latest box (Jan. 2017 – FounDATEions) and our review.
