  1. Have an At-Home Movie Night - Snuggle up under a blanket on the couch and watch one of your favourite movies together. Bring out all the snacks and enjoy a cosy, intimate evening in. Pair it with our Movie Night date box for the ultimate experience. 
  1. Take a Painting Class - Unleash your creative side with a painting class. You will have fun and be able to take something home to hang on the wall. If you're not able to get out of the house and enjoy a paint class then our Date and Paint is the perfect box for you.
