Your recipients can select one of 52 sealed envelopes, each containing a surprise date idea, plus five blank versions so they can add their own ideas. The envelopes are presented in a jar, tied with a decorative ribbon.
This is the perfect gift that keeps couples laughing, trying new things and making memories together. Everyone has busy lives and the dates are here to help them spend quality time doing things they might not have thought of.
All date ideas are suitable for any couple, regardless of gender or age, and are designed to work for even the busiest of schedules. Some activities can be done at home, and others involve a night out or a day trip, so there are plenty of surprises.
Surprise or Categorised?
We’ve designed two versions of this thoughtful gift, to help suit different lifestyles:
- The Surprise Edition means any card could be in any envelope – it’s a lucky dip!
- The Categorised Edition which is perfect for parents, people on a budget or those who like to keep a bit of control! The colours of the envelopes are colour coded: choose to go out for the evening, stay in, or have a day out. There are also a few surprises included.
To help with the ‘tricky’ decisions (like who chooses the film/restaurant/makes breakfast in bed) some cards suggest you flip a coin, but don’t worry there is a leaflet included to explain it all.
How to make the gift personal
You can add a special golden envelope with a choice of messages, to personalise your gift.
