With all this staying in, we decided to arrange date night at home. Usually, we get the kids settled with a movie and some popcorn and then start on our activities. It’s often hard to come up with something to get us talking about something other than work and kids, so we tried out a couple date night boxes.
So far, this is my favorite date night box. It’s super high quality, like letters are each on their own letterhead, a playbill is on that shiny paper that playbills usually come on, the missing cufflink is actually a cufflink. Pretty awesome! Their mysteries run in sets. Most of them have about 6 boxes per mystery. So, if you’re getting a monthly subscription, it can take you six months to actually solve the full mystery. You solve little things along the way, but you don’t identify the killer until the last box.
You can speed up your boxes if you’re getting impatient but I actually like waiting and having something fun like this once a month. It takes us more than one evening to solve it, so sometimes we get in a couple weeks of date night on just one box. Pretty awesome!
At $30 a month, this box is worth every penny.

Our first box arrived right as school started, so I’ve opened the box and looked at it, but with adjusting to our school schedule we haven’t carved out date night time yet. I think we’re about settled in, so this should happen this week.
This month was Japan inspired and it’s a sushi making kit. I keep saying that I’m going to try making sushi, so here’s my chance! It has the rice, seaweed, mat, etc. so I don’t have to go find any of the special sushi ingredients or tools. You do have to provide your own protein and veggies so that slowed us down a bit on getting to this. However, my husband went shrimping with a friend this weekend so I’m thinking that we’re going to use some of that fresh shrimp for our sushi, yum!
The box also includes a link to a playlist and a couple of little games (like a suduku puzzle). At $40 a month this box was interesting enough for me to go ahead and get next month’s box. And I’ll probably decide after that one if we’re going to keep getting these or not. They’re supposed to mix it up with different activities every month. So, we’ll see what we get this time!
They also have a digital option for $8 a month, but, I really like getting something special in the mail.
