Holy crap, did the boyf and I need this night together. It was so necessary.
My son……wait……our son, is seven months old and we have had a total of TWO whole nights together. Woo. Hoo. More like…Boo. Hoo. By night together I mean a couple of hours drinking with friends. We haven’t actually had a proper date together.
Just Us Box is FANTAbulous, yes…as good as “fabulous” with a fanta in it! Who doesn’t love Fanta?!
This amazing box was made by two working mums who were struggling to find one-on-one time with their loved one. Don’t we all?
Every month you get a little box of love sent to your doorstep. The box contains everything you need for a wonderful, amazing, glorious date night either in your home or wherever you choose! Get off that Netflix Girl! My boyfriend and I chose our garden as we were sent the Star Gazing Date Night.
I absolutely love it because it reminds me to take one day, JUST ONE DAY, out of the month to spend some quality time with my loverrrrrr. Rawr. (hey, hey, hey the actual love happens more than once a month, we haven’t completely dried up ; ) ) I have to remind myself that one day out a month is nothing, that’s only 12 days our of the whole year! I need to plan more, this is my goal.
Anyway, the night was glorious. If this was an NFL post-game analysis….here are my highlights! Hollaaaaaaarrrrrr.
HELLO Challenge Cards!
The boyf and I played with the challenge cards that were in the box. For the “Love Challenges” I wrote down reasons why my lover is a star, “He loves deep cleaning the toilet!” ; ) For the “Laugh Challenges” my boyfriend had to draw out a constellation and name what it looks like, he did my boobs. We are super romantic.
The Passion Pouch
There is a little passion pouch in the star gazing box that had…..no not condoms!…..neon paint and lipstick to draw on each other.
We got a little carried away with selfies after we discovered the passion pouch….
Anyway, back to the neon bit. I had so much fun drawing on him (he didn’t allow me to take a photo though…and the images are not PG-13 so can’t post them on the blog), but here is what he drew on me!
sorry I look super creepy lol. Obviously everything is at night time.
I was very pleasantly surprised when I found the telescope! It actually was quite efficient too. I could see everything. Even the old man sitting on the moon from the John Lewis ad.
This was clutch (..apologies for the slang words, I’ve turned into a teenager again since my date night). Okay, they didn’t include whiskey in the pouch, however there was a very nice thermocafe that kept our “coffee” warm. We drank the hot chocolate before the date night…whoops! : )
There were so many great items in this lover box, I highlighted my faves, but if you’re interested here is a list of everything that was included!
- Activities guide
- How to guide on finding great star watching spots
- Astronomical events to watch out for
- Must see constellations
- Recommend stargazing apps
- A Date Pan
- Fun suggestions of music and challenge cards!
- Conversation starters (we especially liked, “who would you like to send to the moon…and leave there?!” we both agreed it was our son ; ) JOKES, I actually do love him)
- Cute picnic blanket
- A telescope!
- A Star Jar – write a note and fill this jar to tell your love how lucky you are!
- The passion pouch – we painted our faces neon green with hearts and penises (obvs)
- The Kepler Telescope – this is awesome, you build your own telescope, another conversation starter for us
- A flash light
- Haribo sweets!
- Galaxy hot chocolate for two
- Thermocafe, a stainless steel vacuum insulated flask …for our “hot chocolate” aka Irish coffee
I would highly recommend this box. Not only has it brought us closer together but it’s more about an experience rather than just purchasing a product for your loved one. A watch is a watch, but a memory lasts forever.
The lovely Mums at Just Us Box gave me a discount code DATE10 which is valid until the end of this month. They have an amazing Indian Summer box (last orders 15th August) – and September’s Pillows & Poetry box.
