Adventure Together | Date Night Review

by brandiann

Adventure Together 

As long as I can remember, I’ve been a lover of the outdoors. Night in Box’s May theme, Adventure Together, brought out my inner child, and my husband’s too! I’m pretty sure campfires, a deck of cards, stargazing and fort making – will do that! Seriously, who doesn’t love a good fort?! Blankets draped above your head brings back memories of playing hide-and-go-seek!

We were in for a night of Adventuring and connecting! It was so much fun! Take a look at our magical night!

Ever since my little girl came along, going out on the town with my husband has come to a screeching halt! Between changing diapers and night feeds its hard to find time to nurture our relationship! Luckily, Night in Boxes sends you everything you need for a fun time of connecting with your husband or significant other!

Life gets in the way, especially when you’re new parents. When a new baby comes along, romance tends to take a back seat. Night in Boxes gives you an opportunity to take your relationship off the back burner and make it front and center.

Date Itinerary

Our day-to-day busy lives leaves little time for adventure. Adventure doesn’t always mean having to spend a fortune traveling the globe. Adventure can happen anywhere, even in the comfort of your home, especially with the right tools! We started date night by following the recipe guide on the Night in Boxes Website. They make it so easy by giving you a step-by-step. I love how they give you a playlist to help set the mood! Some of the tunes on the playlist had some artists I’ve never heard of and they were great (ps I love discovering new artists)!


After dinner, we got started on the Date Itinerary. First up were some questions; it’s one of the things I love the most about these boxes because it gets us thinking and talking about things we don’t normally chat about on the daily. It’s definitely a nice change of pace from the usual, “What would you like for dinner?” and “How was your day?”

Next up on the itinerary was some star gazing! Love is written in the stars, especially this Date Night, because you get a Certificate of Authenticity to prove it! There’s something so profound about looking up at the night sky with your love!

After we explored the night skies, we had some fun putting together our fort and making it super cozy, and of, course romantic (with candles, blankets and comfy pillows). We pulled out the deck of cards and had some fun with a card game included in the box!

We ended the night outside sitting around a campfire! The itinerary had some more conversation starters meant to serve as a way to nurture your relationship on an even deeper level! These questions can be revisited on a weekly or monthly basis. So often it can feel as though you and your significant other are but two ships passing in the night. Make sure you keep that love and connection alive!



The Verdict / Our Opinion

One thing I love about Night in Boxes, they give my husband and I an opportunity to connect in a way we wouldn’t normally. It adds zest and excitement, it keeps us on our toes and keeps things fresh! We are really looking forward to next month’s box to see what’s in store!

This date looks a whole lot of fun. During the summertime, my husband and I enjoy being outside with a fire after our girls have gone to bed. It’s great to get that time to ourselves.

Thank you so much for taking a look at our date! There really isn’t anything like a good fire with the one you love 🙂
