Recently Crated With Love sent me one of their kits to test out, and I wanted to share my experience with you.
What is it?
Essentially it’s a date night in a box.
The kit we received was a fun safari game complete with game pieces, spinner, cards, a magnet and a host of other fun stuff.
What do you do with it?
You use it to foster a bit of fun and bonding with your significant other!
What’s it like?
My husband and I had great child-care when we lived in Colorado so we made date nights out a regular occurrence, but since moving to Seattle we have yet to find our dream babysitter so date nights tend to consist of Netflix and take-out. Crated With Love is the perfect excuse to turn off the TV and give your partner your undivided attention, for a fun and romantic night in.
Ours couldn’t have arrived at a more perfect time too. During the Seattle Snowpocolypse of 2019 we were without power AND internet (the horror). We couldn’t leave the house, and frankly it was so cold and miserable outside we didn’t want to anyway. With Baby snuggled in bed we lit some candles (well, a LOT of candles because it was dark y’all) and pulled out our Crated With Love date night in a box.
At first I was a little skeptical about whether or not it would be fun or just cheesy, and it’s safe to say my husband had an even higher level of skepticism. But just a few minutes into the game we’d already laughed, recounted some favorite memories, and made plans for future trips, adventures, and date nights. Throughout the game we were prompted to whisper sweet things to each other, recall funny moments we’d shared, and set couple’s goals.
All-in-all I give Crated With Love two thumbs up. It would even be a fun activity for a double date!
Having been with my husband for over 10 years now I can say that a happy relationship doesn’t just magically happen, you have to invest in it. Spending focused time together (not just separately scrolling Instagram while sitting next to each other on the couch) helps strengthen your bond…plus it should be fun! Definitely check out some of Crated With Love’s previous boxes, they have some pretty fun ones!
