Crated with Love offers single purchase date night boxes or you can find many different options on marketplaces like Etsy.
Create a customized date night gift basket
Looking for something more customizable? Create a special date night basket or box that fits the couple’s interests. But how do you put together a customized date night box? Easy!
First, make a list of everything you know the partner enjoys, including snacks, hobbies, types of movies or music, and anything else you can think of. Then, find 3-5 items that match those interests, find a unique box or basket to wrap it in, and boom! Instant date night gift!
The best way to think of items is to find a specific activity type. For example, if the couple loves movies, baseball, and candy, find a baseball-themed movie on DVD and fill the rest of the kit in with their favorite snacks and candy so they can have a romantic movie night in! Not only will this be an amazing date night for them, but also an incredibly personal and thoughtful one.
Find an event that matches their interests
If you’re gifting a date night to a couple that loves to go out, find a special event to get them tickets to. It could be a comedy show or a local wine tasting event, or anything you know they would love.
An important thing to remember with this idea is to make sure the event will fit with their schedule. If you are unsure, find recurring events or places where you can get gift cards or certificates they can use for future events.
Create a “Date Night Wallet” for the couple
Just giving a single gift card may not be very unique and fun, but a fun and unique way to spice up that route is to create a customized “Date Night Wallet” for the couple.
Find four or five local vendors that offer gift cards and create an entire date night out for the couple. For example, you can fill the wallet with a restaurant gift card, an ice cream parlor gift card for dessert, and a movie theater gift card for entertainment.
This option is perfect if you are unsure about the couple’s interest but still want to find something a little unique and different.
Find a unique date night game
If the couple you are gifting for loves games, think about a special two-player board or card game you can give them as a gift. Even something as simple as a deck of conversation starters can be a fun and unique gift to help the couple connect.
There are also a lot of great two player board games you can consider for your couple as well. Games are great because they help promote quality, dedicated time - great qualities for an awesome date night.
Find a class the couple can take together
If you know they love to learn new things together, get the couple admission to a local class they can take. For example, if they love to cook, find a cooking class. If they both love photography, find a photography tour they can go on.
This idea is best if you know the couple’s interests, but either way, finding something they can both do as a team is a great way to help promote “discovery,” or the opportunity for them to learn something new together.Looking for unique gifts for couples?
