Sometimes the idea of having a regular date night seems like an achievable fantasy, am I right. I want to spend some quality time with my hubby, of course, but it is always so hard to make it happen. We have gotten much better about making time for the two of us… but we always end up with the old stand-by date: dinner and a movie. I do enjoy these typical date nights but I still wanted to find a way way to have a more meaningful date night at least once in a month. When I discovered these Open When… Date Boxes from the Dating Divas, I knew I hit the jackpot and had to share with my lovely readers!
These boxes are kind of like prepping a ton of freezer meals–there is a bit of work to do up front but once it’s done you don’t have to worry about it anymore and your busy weeks will end with a stress-free, pre-planned date night! Each box has everything you need to make that date night happen, so when you’re ready for your date all you have to do is take your pick and get started. Plus, with this kit from The Dating Divas, the prep isn’t so bad either. They’ve included all of the following:
Box Decorations – Use the fun designs to dress up and make each box feel like a special delivery.
So fun, right?!
To get everything ready, you’ll need to grab a bunch of boxes. You can get matching ones or scrounge around the house, either way works because the coordinated decorations will pull everything together.
Start affixing the decorations and labels to each of the boxes you’ve collected. You can choose as many of the Open When Date Labels as you want, you can definitely customize it to your preferences. There are multiple date ideas for each “Open When…” theme, so there is something for everyone..
If you’re giving this as a gift to your spouse, then you should probably include a few of the love notes. If you’re not great at expressing your feelings, let the cards do all the talking and only add a message to the back of the love notes when you really feel inspired.
Once you’ve decided on the dates for each them, just start throwing everything in the boxes! It doesn’t take as long as you’d think to get it all together and in the end they are so useful. Set yourselves up for fun date nights without any excuses by grabbing these Open When Boxes now! Wouldn’t these also make a great birthday or holiday gift for the hard to buy for spouse?!
