More Fun

You started out by dating each other, it’s how you get to know you’re well suited. But when you settle down the fun, the laughter, the dating can take a back seat. But it shouldn’t!

Bring the spark back

As you get more comfortable with each other you can lose some of that spark, that excitement, it’s natural – there is bills to pay, jobs to go to. But that doesn’t mean that it is gone for good, dating brings back the intrigue, the fun and that sparkle.

New experiences

How often do you say, ‘we should try that!’ then not do it? Life is for living!  The cards are designed to be interpreted by you, so now is the time to visit the theme park, order from that new restaurant or book the day off and spend it walking up a mountain!

Deeper Connection

Rather than your day-to-day routine talking, planning and looking forward to the dates gives you something new to talk about each week. Something to plan together, some romance and adventure!

The Date Box contains 52 colourful sealed cards, inside each is a suggestion for a date. 

The date ideas are a mix of things that can be done at home when the kids are in bed (no one said you have to leave the house to go on a date), as a day or night out.  

How you interpret the date is up to you, you can make it as adventurous or relaxing as you like, making dedicated time for each other is the aim.  

There is no mention of gender in the box, the dates are suitable for all ages, budgets and lifestyles.  

So what are you waiting for?

How do you plan for the dates?  

[gap height=”10px”]

Dating shouldn’t be a chore, after all it is how you met and got to know each other. It is however harder once you factor in family, career, budgets and all the other responsibilities we have in life.  

The Date Box comes in two variations.

We are Kate and John, and since 2016 we’ve grown A Year of Dates from a gift to an award winning business.

It all started in 2014 when John made me (Kate) a date jar for Christmas. He’d filled 72 envelopes (he got a bit carried away!) with date ideas. Every Monday morning I opened an envelope and we had to make an effort to do what the card said that week. It was exciting, some ideas weren’t what I’d choose to do but we made it fun, and most importantly we made time for each other in our busy lives – something we all can forget to do!

Everyone I spoke to about it said “that’s a great idea, I wish I had the time to think of the date ideas’… And we realised we did have the time and the ideas. A Year of Dates was born in September 2016 with our first product that is based on the original jar.

FAQ

[/ux_text] [gap height=”10px”][accordion][accordion-item title=”What is on the cards?”]

We obviously can’t reveal ALL our of secrets! There is some cross over between the different products with some of the most popular ideas appearing in all of the sets. The activities are a range of things to do at home, nights out and days out . Some you might have thought of yourself, or be things you do regularly, but how you interpret the card is up to you. All of the envelopes are sealed so you get a surprise each time, if you don’t like what the card says you don’t have to do it, it’s about having fun, but it is also good to try things so don’t just dismiss it. We haven’t suggested anything dangerous, illegal or scary – there are blank cards in some sets so if you want to swim with sharks or jump out of an aeroplane you can add these yourself.

[/accordion-item] [accordion-item title=”What is the difference between regular and colour coded dates?”]

All our date boxes/jars use a selection of coloured envelopes. The only difference is the colour coded ones determine the type of dates that are inside – so if you know you want to stay in that week (it’s nowhere near payday/no babysitters/busy weekend) choose blue. Want a night out? choose yellow etc. The regular set is more of a lucky dip where any colour could contain any type of date.

[/accordion-item] [accordion-item title=”I’ve lost the key for the Categorised dates, what do the colors mean?”]

The categorised dates come in 4 colours of envelopes:

[/accordion-item] [accordion-item title=”Are the cards suitable for same sex couples?”]

There is no mention of gender on the cards so they can be used by everyone. If a decision needs to be made the person opening the envelope will be asked to flip a coin and choose heads or tails.

[/accordion-item] [accordion-item title=”There’s a lot of paper being wasted!”]

All of the paper can be recycled and where possible we use sustainable products. We recycle all of our waste and use any excess packing material to protect our glass jars when posting.

Our boxes are produced using greyboard which is made from a mix of recycled and waste paper and is 100% Recyclable.

Where possible we source from FSC certified suppliers, which make up the vast majority of our suppliers.
