The Best "Date Night In" Subscription Boxes of 2022

Planning a creative date night at home used to be a challenge, even before the COVID-19 pandemic. First, you had to think up date night ideas and decide what activity you want to do. Then you had to gather all the materials, from games to food ingredients. The whole planning process could take as much time as the date night itself.

That’s why couples love Cratejoy’s date night subscription boxes. They provide a whole date night in a box, delivered conveniently to you once a month so that you and your partner can enjoy the perfect date night from the comfort of your living room — no babysitter required. Each date night crate contains everything you need for a fun activity, and Cratejoy offers an impressive variety of subscription services to choose from.

Do you and your significant other love the thrill of a murder mystery game or an escape room? Does cooking a new dish sound way more fun than ordering takeout? Are you looking for at-home date night boxes that are real conversation starters for married couples who have been together for years? If so, check out our list of the best date night subscription boxes and find your next great date night activity.
