Before you spend money, read this list to be sure you’re choosing from the best date night subscription boxes!
Have you been in a relationship for a while? Whether you’ve been married for several years, or together for a decade, you’ve likely exhausted most of the usual date ideas for couples. You’ve gone to the movies. You’ve gone dancing. You’ve opted for free date ideas like concerts in the park. You’ve tried out late night date ideas, like the midnight picnic or heading to a fun diner.
When date night starts to feel rote, predictable, or uninspired, why not consider trying out a subscription box? There are so many options that are designed for date nights, and still others that are just perfect activities for couples to do together.
Date night subscription boxes are a great idea, because not only do they get delivered directly to your home, if you are on a repeating subscription plan, you can get a new box every month! That means a creative, fresh date night is planned for you already, and ready to go.
So now that I’ve convinced you it might be worth trying out some subscription boxes for couples, which one should you choose? To help you narrow it down, I’ve collected a list of 16 of the most popular subscription date boxes for couples. I’m fairly certain you’ll find an awesome one for you and your partner to try.
Hunt A Killer
Okay, I’ve personally tried several of the date boxes on this list and hands-down, this has been my favorite, and my husband’s too! If you’re a fan of true crime or mysteries you’ll have such a blast with this box. Each box is part of a bigger “season” so you spend several date nights working on solving an ongoing crime.
This date box was really fun and engaging and the instructions were very straightforward. Each box is filled with clues you can sort through and examine. I loved the tangible aspect of this.
