If date night usually means dinner and drinks, there’s nothing wrong with that. Dressing up to go out is fun. But if you’re looking to switch things up from the routine and for a few date ideas, this Year of Dates card set is a solid buy.
Year of Dates — 52 Surprise Envelopes, $42
The set includes 52 envelopes with secret date ideas inside. (Psst — some of the dates include things like cooking a candlelit dinner at home or trying something new together, like wine tasting or rollerblading.) The idea is to open one envelope with a surprise date idea inside, once a week, and then do it. The cards are color-coded, so you can pick a date that best suits your budget and schedule, too. Blue cards provide dates you can do at home, green gives you something to do during the day, yellow gives you a day or nighttime date, and orange is a total surprise.
Date night is important for connection, as it gives you and your partner time to talk about your relationship, and it’s fun to spend time together. Not to mention, according to an article by Psychology Today, date nights give you time to build positive interactions. You need five positive interactions to one negative interaction in order to maintain a healthy, positive perspective.
The Year of Dates — 52 Surprise Envelopes set costs $42, and it’s great if you’re trying to keep your spark going strong or simply want to try new things together. It’s also a solid wedding or anniversary gift for your loved-up friends.
Date night doesn’t have to be complicated to be good, but it never hurts to have a few fun ideas at the ready.
