It goes without saying that most of us are spending more time than ever before at home. If you're craving a date night that goes beyond your usual Netflix and takeout, we've got a suggestion: a date night subscription box. Inside these weekly or monthly subscription boxes, you'll find everything you need to create a memorable date night at home. You can experience everything from a gourmet meal to a DIY escape room experience or a sexy romantic night without leaving the house.

When shopping for a date night subscription box, it's important to consider what kinds of activities you actually enjoy as a couple. Does your heart race at the thought of going on adventures and solving puzzles together or would you prefer a romantic at-home date night with specific prompts designed to spark conversation and grow your relationship? Perhaps you want a little from column A and a little from column B? Whatever your personality is as a couple, there's a perfect date night subscription box for you.
