A Gift for Date Night That's a Lot of Fun And Maybe Just a Little 'Awkward'- Crated with Love's The Awkward Years #MBPHoliday20

Thank you to Crated with Love for sending product to facilitate this review. All thoughts shared below are my own. 


I'm always on the lookout for great date night ideas. Matt and I have been together since 1997 and our relationship has changed over the years. Sometimes taking the time to connect daily is back-burnered as we divide our focus between the kids, the house, work, etc. It's easy to let life's happenings distract us, but we are on the same page in the belief that it is important to make sure we plan time to focus on each other and our relationship. 


A MUCH younger Matt and Vanessa with all the time in the world for "date nights" and fun! Sorry for the grainy photo, but back then we used disposable cameras and film, not digital cameras and cell phones! 


We appreciate moments of one-on-one time that allow us to (temporarily, of course) abandon any role aside from that of one another's sweetie and cause a great deal of laughter. Thanks to our friends at   Crated with Love, Matt and I are fixing to have just that type of date night this weekend!



About Crated with Love

Crated with Love was founded in 2014 by couple Tyler and Michelle (who happens to be a licensed marriage and family therapist!). After strengthening their own relationship by recommitting to a regular date night, they launched Crated with Love with the goal of helping other couples recommit to date night as well. The company offers Date Night Subscription Boxes, One Time Boxes, Gift Cards, 3, 6, or 12 month Gift Subscriptions, and Mini Date Card Games. 


We received the "The Awkard Years" date night in a box and I couldn't be more thrilled. Everything inside is 90s themed and each item instantly brought a smile to my face and reignited so many happy memories. Like it says right on the lid, this box is "all that and a bag of chips"! 


We both wished to escape 2020 and be back in simpler times? What are the odds? 🤣



Sneak peek at the contents of this awsome box- an "I 💗 the 90s" pin, a clear bottle, quarter machine trinkets, a slap bracelet, game cards, a rainbow pen, and a (gasp) Tamagotchi!



Movie Night MASH game cards- this ought to be really fun!



Absolutely LOVE that there is a date night playlist! 



Report Cards!!! I was a pretty good student, Matt better bring his "A" game if he wants to win 😉

I have a collection of holo stickers from when Matt and I were first dating. I absolutely love this one, but didn't love having to explain it to BOTH kids! 



Fun little zippered pencil bag with gel pens- just perfect for all the note-taking, MASH playing, and Report Card filling out! 


I'm not sure which activity I'm looking forward to most. MASH promises to be really fun and it reminds me of high school study hall with Matt taking the quizzes in my teenage girl magazines just to get a chuckle out of me and my friends. I'm also really excited to check out the Tamagotchi and I know I'm the one that's going to be rocking the "I Love the 90s" pin when I inevitably win.
