Plan Our Date* is a monthly subscription box which does exactly what it says, it plans your date. It’s perfect for couples who want to do something a little different and have a date night fully organized that you don’t have to think about. My fiancé works away a lot, so time with him is very precious and I love the idea of having something fun to do with him that’s a little out of the ordinary. I think it’s important for couples to do things together to keep you close, especially when work can take up so much time out of peoples lives.
The box came immaculately packaged, there was even a pink plastic wrap around the box with bubble wrap on the inside to protect it from getting damaged in the post. Inside the box it was packed very neatly and lined with purple tissue paper. My box looks a little squished because one of my cats decided to sleep on it, apparently she claimed it as her own, thinking it was a new bed. Getting pictures today was extremely difficult, both my cats wanted to be involved in the process. So many photos had to be discarded because they had been photo bombed by one of the cats. I’d have kept them in, but they were blurry because they can never sit still!
It costs £24.99 per month, which is billed monthly. It gets cheaper the longer you pick to sign up though. You can also cancel at any time, if you choose, which is nice to know. Plan Our Date boxes are shipped on the 20th of each month. Right now, they are even offering a smaller free trial box.. so get it while you can! Side note, you do have to pay for postage and packaging though, which is £2.99.
Inside the first box you get:
- Ingredients to make pancakes, including syrup
- 2 Canvases
- 2 Paint Brushes
- 2 Pencils
- Acrylic Paints
- 2 Tea bags
- 2 Small packs of Love Hearts
- 2 Who Knows Who Game Papers
- Winners Tokens
- Instruction Manual
You can see most of the box contents in the very first picture.
Sadly, my fiancé is working away right now so I’m not able to enjoy this with him until he gets back. But when he does, I’ll do an update post.. show you how the pancakes came out and whatever we decided to paint, give our opinions on the game and the rest of the contents better.
The game will be interesting, see who knows who better. The winner tokens make it better, they are, “Breakfast in bed”, “Free Massage”, “Cup of Tea” Although the cup of tea one is pretty disappointing, because that’s something we regularly do for each other anyway.
I will still be trying it out with my fiancé though, when he’s back, I’ll let you know my thoughts after we have.
Will you be signing up?
