Q: Do you keep the boxes when you get them or do you return them when you finish with them?Asked by Lindsey S., February 2021
You get to keep your date night boxes once you use them. Because of this, we always try to build our dates so that they are as reusable as possible, including games and activities you can do over again. We also include fun little mementos to remember your date by. :)
Q: Are all the activities in these boxes LGBTQ-friendly? I want to know before buying that it won’t misgender the people playing. Do any of the activities assume that the partners are a man and a woman?Asked by Kirill L., November 2020
All our boxes are LGBTQ+ friendly with gender-neutral instructions for all activities. We make sure that all our dates can be enjoyed by every couple.
Q: I ordered my first box on the 30th of October. It listed saying the box I would receive was the Howling Hotel and I ordered in time. However, I did not receive that one. How do I get this corrected?Asked by Catherine G., November 2020
Hello! If there are any issues with your order, please email us or send a direct message and we will make sure you are all taken care of. Support tickets are answered within 24 business day hours.
I had already sent a direct messenger through the "contact seller" button. I still have not received a response.
Q: Will this item ever be available to ship outside the US?Asked by Laura Z., October 2020
April’s stranded in love was my husband and I’s first box. It completely exceeded our exceptions! We played for well over 2 hours and had an amazing time. Already looking forward to our next box!! We decided to laminate our cards so we could reuse. Side suggestion that we didn’t see suggested in the box but stumbled upon for each date night box there is a music playlist on Spotify to go along with your game night, really helped set the mood.
My fiancée and I had so much fun with these boxes! Having 2 kids, plus with the pandemic, it’s hard finding the time to go out on a date. This box was just what we needed! After putting the kiddos to bed, we played our “Greek night” themed box and we had WAY MORE FUN then if we had gone out. These boxes are jam packed with fun activities that not only get you both laughing, but it creates an even deeper bond. I just subscribed for yet another 3 months!
Thank you, Ivy! Thank you for sharing your experience. Thank you so much for your kind words and we are so happy you both had fun! We can't wait to share our upcoming themes with you! Happy Dating!
The Escape from the Howling Hotel was by far the biggest disappointment we’ve experienced this week by far. We’ve come to enjoy our date night boxes from Cratejoy, even going as far as looking forward to them each month. I have to say, this month was as if it came from an entirely different company. It was boring, poorly thought out, completely different from the usual and had zero relationship building exercises. It was pointless and we can’t get our free time back. We were constantly waiting for it to get better. Seriously, where did this come from?? It ruined our night. Do better next time.
Hi Janine! Thank you so much for taking the time to share your thoughts with us! The Escape from the Howling Hotel date night was an escape room box that focused on teamwork and problem solving as its relationship focal point. It was a new and unique concept to the normal boxes we've done in the past. We do always make sure to get as much feedback as we can from each date and we have noticed that this box has been one of our highest rated boxes. That being said, our goal as a brand is to ensure that EVERY one of our couples has a wonderful time on their date. It's feedback like this and experiences like yours that really help us improve...
This was such a fun date box! It arrived just in time for Valentines days, so we stayed home and enjoyed a night of giggles and games!
Hi Alissa! Thank you so much for reviewing and sharing your experience. We are so happy you both had fun and shared some laughs! We can't wait to show you our upcoming themes. Happy Dating! :)
My husband and I did the Route 66 box on Valentine's day last week...we weren't exactly sure what to expect but it looked like a really cute idea. I enjoyed the Playlist that went with the box and the games were fun. It took us a few hours to complete the box. When my husband was almost played out, I convinced him to play the last game, he won the movie night which I still have to plan for him, but we will get around to it. I enjoyed the "extra date" ideas in there, both of us work full-time and we have run out of ideas to do date things with COVID happening. We live in California and life has been shut down here. We did not really do much last year. We may even end up doing one of the "extra date" ideas today, just for something to do. Thanks for this well thought out box, you guys did great. 👍
Hi Jolene! Thank you so much for your kind words and we are so honored to be a part of some special memories created! We are so appreciative of the time you took to write this review and offer your feedback. We are so excited to show you the new themes we have in store for the future! Happy Dating! :)
My fiancé and I really enjoy doing the Crated with Love date night boxes. We've had six months of date night boxes and each one has been unique. Occasionally we'll find a typo in the instructions, but the activities and games usually work well and create the opportunity to share our thoughts with each other and be silly and a bit vulnerable.
Hi Shelly! Thank you so much for your review! We are so happy to hear you've had fun! Thank you both for being such an amazing Crated with Love couple. We can wait to share the new themes we have planned for you! Happy Dating! :)
Wow. I got my first box, which so happened to be Created with Love's first escape room box. It was incredibly high-quality materials, challenging but nothing crazy and really fun. My partner and I both had a few laughs and really enjoyed the box. Looking forward to more.
Hi Josh! We are so happy to hear you had fun! That was definitely one of our more favorite themes to create! Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience! Happy Dating! :)
We had so much fun with this box! It was the perfect date night and even came with mood music. Looking forward to next month.
Really fun and creative idea!!
