In honor of Valentine’s Day coming up, I decided to try out a relationship themed box with Date Night In. While it may be too late to order yours this month, it’s still a fun way to spend time with your SO! I was a little afraid it wouldn’t even be in on time with my schedule, but it did and here’s what I thought!
Date Night In Subscription Options
There are 4 subscription options: monthly, 3 months, 6 months, and 1 year options.
Every box will contain 5-7 assorted items that are themed for that particular month. This month (February) was a Valentine’s/heart theme (obvi).
Monthly: $34.99, where you can cancel at any time
3 Months: $99 ($33/month)
6 Months: $197 ($32.84/month)
12 Months: $380 ($31.67/month)
Plus any shipping costs. I did the monthly plan and paid $8 shipping, it may be discounted for larger plans.
According to their website: “New parents/Budget conscious couples/Babysitter-less parents/Newlyweds /Honeymooners/Just started to date pair/ Been married 30 years warriors/I just got a ring on my finger team/LGBTQ partners/We are in love but prefer not to get married duos/Testing the waters and looking for something different seekers/Any person who gets those butterflies in their stomach!”
I ordered as a single gal, and could still use most of the items included…at some point. It’s just assorted items to help create a nice night at home.
February 2017 Box Contents
I ordered my box on January 28th and it came in on the 11th. Their reviews indicate that boxes will normally deliver between the 12th and 14th of any given month. Here’s what was inside:
A Date Night In satin blindfold (an average might cost about $10)
A mini bag of Snyder’s Pretzels (a 16 oz bag is about $3)
A pouch of Wilton Candy Melts (around $3 online)
Nipple Nibblers balm ($6 online)
Handmade intimate suggestion cards (free if you were to make them yourself to as low as $3 online)
2 Pens ($2 probably)
Some soft ball that I’m not sure the purpose of ($5 online)
In addition they included this card with a recipe for Eggplant Parmesan, some tips, and a link to a playlist to help you really set up a special night with your loved one. Really cool bonus!
First and foremost, I want to compliment the company on their customer service. For the longest time after ordering, I couldn’t find the link to their store page. I don’t know if it changed or something, but everything I tried was a dead-end. They’re also really hard to find on search engines I emailed customer service through my account info on CrateJoy, and someone got back to me within a day. They reassured me they were still running and that I’d receive my box before Valentine’s Day. I was really impressed by the efficiency!
The contents didn’t impress me too much. If I had gotten them myself it would have cost me around $30, close to their pricing, but saved on the shipping I paid. I did like the creativity and thought put into the custom items.
I’m probably not going to continue with my subscription, but I’d try it again. I think it’s better to do the monthly plan, it’s not a huge price difference to pay a few months in advance. Put you might prefer it! Try out Date Night In for an upcoming evening and share your thoughts!
