According to a recent study by the Marriage Foundation, couples who have a regular date night once a month are 14% less likely to break up. Kayleigh Pursey, founder of Date Night (www.getdatenight.co.uk), a monthly subscription box packed with everything you need for a luxury date night at home, gives us her 5 reasons why we should all have a date night on subscription…

To keep the spark alive

To keep the spark alive

It’s about keeping the spark alive…

It is easy, and completely normal, to get stuck in a relationship rut or to want to add some excitement to a relationship. By setting aside a regular time-out from our increasingly busy lives, family responsibilities and technology demands to spend one-on-one time together, we are making a commitment to the other person and showing them that we are willing to make the relationship a priority. A date night is about giving ourselves the chance to re-engage with our other half, learn new things about each other and to grow closer. Most importantly, it gives us the opportunity to have fun together.

It’s about taking a break from ‘real-life’

Whether you’ve been married two years or two decades, life can get caught in a cycle of eat, sleep, live, repeat, which is why a date night is one routine you should follow. Date night is about taking a break from the ever growing to-do list and about setting aside time to focus purely on each other. It also gives us permission to turn off our phones!

It’s about making it easy…

We live in an age where convenience is king and so in our time-poor world what could be easier than having a fully planned, creative date night delivered straight to the door, every month? All planning and preparation is taken care of so all you need to do is find the time!

It’s about mixing it up…

Say goodbye to the glass of wine sitting on the sofa in your pj’s watching Netflix kind of date night, and say hello to some imaginative, personalised experiences and lots of opportunities for memory making fun. Why not learn the art of massage, wine, chocolate or tea tasting? A box could give couples the opportunity to step out of their comfort zone and bond over learning some new skills together.

It’s about value for money

Keeping the spark alive doesn’t have to mean expensive meals out or weekends away. At just £39.95/month, the luxury Date Night box is better value than a dinner out plus a babysitter and a taxi home!
