It has been several months since my husband and I received a Date Night in Box. For the last few months, we have received the Kids Night in Box and we really enjoyed the family time. But, we thought it was time for another Date Night box. In all honesty, date nights have been hard to fit in this winter. Our weekends are filled with kids activities, so by the time weekend evenings roll around, we prefer a quiet evening at home relaxing. The Date Night in Box is a perfect mix of a relaxing date night at home with a little more structure and focus. The theme of this month’s box was Key to My Heart.

Date Night in Box Contents

Love Languages Quiz
Key to My Heart Adventure
Parisian Password Game
It is important to read over all of the instructions before getting started.
This date night was a little more on the serious and romantic side (fitting for a February box!). The theme focused on heart health, both physically and emotional. The instructions started with a recipe for a heart healthy dinner. Sometimes we make the dinner recipe but this time we opted to keep it easy. I will definitely save the recipe for future use.
Next, we were instructed to assess our physical health and review some of the “keys” to a healthy heart. We are doing good on most of the five key components including exercise, sleep, diet and managing stress. One of the healthy items listed, that we rarely do, is Cook Together! Funny enough since we didn’t cook the Night in Box recipe–clearly an area we can work on!
Our next task was completed the five love languages quiz on our own. I LOVED this part of the date. As I’ve mentioned recently (when I talked about relationships with your kids HERE), I really find that it is important to understand your family member’s love languages to best meet their needs.
My husband and I have talked about the love languages together before but not this in depth. We guessed what each other’s primary love languages were and we realized we were right in some areas and not in others. It was great activity to discuss our needs with each other on a deeper level!
Next, we got to enjoy some yummy crepes (since the theme had a French twist) and write each other love notes. We saved the notes to open later on in the date.
Our final two activities were games! It was nice to lighten up the mood after the earlier serious activities. The first game was a mystery we had to solve about a fictious French couple in the 1900’s It was actually a bit challenging to solve the clues but we got it right!
For our final activity, we played a French version of password. To play, we each had a set of cards and we had to say one a one word clue that would hopefully get the other one of us to guess the password. We really liked this game and our competitive nature came out. My husband won:)
