Date in a Box: Date Night In

date night box

No matter what anybody else ever says, men are the hardest people to get gifts for. Especially the men that always insist they don’t need anything. Everyone needs something! Either way, this is always the answer I get from my boyfriend whenever a holiday or anniversary comes around. Since I refuse to be someone who shows up empty-handed, I have to get creative.

If they truly don’t need anything, try giving them an activity or an experience. Often times, I will see if there is a concert nearby, or a weekend getaway that works for both of us. Or sometimes, you just want to be lazy and have a date night in!

In this project, I created a lazy night in a box for Tim and I. Date nights in a box are fun and easy, and you can literally put whatever you want in it!

The only supplies you need:

  • A box
  • Date night supplies

For my date night box:

  • Pajama pants for both of us
  • A bottle of wine
  • Wine glasses
  • Snacks

Some other ideas:

  • Cooking a meal together
  • Watching a movie
  • Your own version of wine and paint night
  • Break out an old board game

Have fun with it! Date boxes are so easy to make and allow you to individualize it for your significant other. Have some more ideas? Share below!
