CREATIVE DATE NIGHT IDEAS
Get excited! It’s date night…but not just any date night.
Make your spouse look forward to a date by planning one of these unique dates.
And for bonus points, give them a handwritten invitation to the date.
1. Escape Room At Home!
Finder’s Seekers is the ultimate escape room at home date! And I’m not exaggerating when I say this has been the most fun at-home date night we’ve ever done. So I have to mention this one first. I gifted a box to my husband for Valentine’s Day and we had so much fun working on solving this puzzle together!
Finder’s Seekers has monthly subscription options (where you get a new mystery to solve each month) or you can just buy a one-time mystery box. Not only is this great for date night, but family fun!
I was amazed at the detail and thought that goes into each mystery. We worked on our mystery for almost 3 hours, although you could easily split it up into more than one date. We didn’t want to stop!
Each box content varies, but each month there are abundant cryptic clues and puzzles to get your heart racing and brain ticking. You’ll transport to a unique locale for each ‘Find’ where you’ll uncover underground cultures and explore local traditions. You’ll need to rely on good ‘ole fashioned research and online tools to make your way to the ‘Find.’
