Date Night || Review

Date nights aren't something Jon and myself do enough off.

Usually our date nights include a take away and a film.
Nothing exciting or original there, so when I found out about a monthly subscription box delivering fun and creative date night boxes right to your door, I was more than willing to give it ago.

Our box was a wine tasting box!
Wine tasting is something that's always interested me and of course I LOVE wine and I'm more than happy to try out new ones!

What came in our box;
A selection of wines,
Instructions on how to taste wine,
2 Wine scoring cards,
2 secret envelopes,
A mini box of chocolate,
A wine & wishes quiz card.
Grow your own wine seed kit.

We switched the TV off and set up the coffee table.
We were planning to dress up but both decided that we were a bit too lazy for that!

Tasting the different wines was great, I'm not a red wine girl so I was dreading the Reds in the selection but to be fair one of them was really nice!
One of the white wines - La Perle d'Arche was gorgeously sweet and I'm now on the hunt to find it in our local supermarket! 

I completely failed on the quiz which meant Jon one with only a couple of correct answers, all of which was guesses but it meant he won the secret prize in envelope 2.
Wish tickets!

I'm sure he'll be cashing in some of those very soon.

We both giggled lots and it was nice to actually do something completely different, even though we were at home it didn't feel like the usual stuck at home dates we normal have.

We both learned new things and both had fun.

It was nice to focus on something other than the children or the rubbish that's on TV these days.

We had fun just being in each others company.

I think as a couple we really need to make the effort to spend one on one time enjoying each other.
We don't want to become two people who share a house and look after the monsters that we both created.

The date night box gave us that opportunity as it isn't as simple as it would be if we didn't have the kids.
We'd be able to go out and about if we wanted.
Having a date night box sent to us, gave us an exciting and fun date night that we could have in the comfort of our own home and with the kids all tucked up safe in their own beds.
No disruptions for them and no stress for us!

Would I buy a date night box myself?

I think I would!
I think its a fab idea, especially for parents like us who find it hard and stressful to leave the kids with babysitters.
A different date every month, it takes the pressure off you for trying to organise something, it give you something you'd probably never have thought about doing and it lands right on your doorstep!
You don't even need to leave the house to plan the date!

The Date Night box is just about to launch and if you sign up on you can get 50% off your first box.
