Datelivery, who kindly sent me this box to review, is a monthly date night in a box! Each month you’ll get a unique, planned out, themed date night along with complementary items to enhance your date night experience.
Datelivery ships via USPS Priority Mail and took the promised two days to arrive. I don’t think Priority Mail guarantees their two day delivery, so I’m not totally sure why they even include the number of days it will take?
Datelivery has a different theme every month and they aren’t announced in advance so it’s a total surprise when it arrives. Datelivery is a box I have been wanting to check out for a few months now, so I was super excited to see what it was all about.
I still couldn’t figure out what the theme of this one was, but I knew from this look that B would be excited!
The December Datelivery theme is “A Picnic Under the Stars” and included everything you needed to have a date night in! B and I stay in a lot (which I like), but we are totally guilty of not really doing anything together after the kids go to bed. I mean we’ll catch up on DVR stuff, but we don’t really “hang out”. Hopefully this can change that! Here’s what was included:
~Get To Know Your Mate Game: A little game to play while on your picnic to get to know each other better. I think B and I know each other fairly well, but there’s always more to learn! Datelivery also suggests that the winner gets a prize, which I am all for. I just need to determine what that will be before B gets home tomorrow night and we have our date.
~The Snacks: Since it’s a picnic (which I am thinking of setting up in the living room)you don’t need a full meal, but of course you need some snacks! The box includes crackers, sausage and brie, which are perfect picnic foods. Add in some wine and you’re all set!
~Paper Goods: Other than wine, you seriously don’t need anything! The box even included paper plates, napkins and a tablecloth!
~Under the Stars: Your picnic is supposed to be under the stars, but I’m pretty sure B would lose his mind of I pinned / attached these to anything. LOL! I am thinking that these would be awesome on the top of the lower bunk of L’s bunk bed or even in the tent for when we do some indoor camping.
I didn’t do a cost breakdown for Datelivery, which starts at $25/month because a lot of it is about the experience and less about the goods in the box. I love the idea behind this box and think it’s totally something B and I could benefit from!
