In Melbourne, Victoria - Two Cheltenham Mums have taking the hassle out of planning a date night with your significant other by delivering a custom made date night in experience right to your front door.
Melbourne’s newest start-up, Date Crate, is a monthly subscription box service that focuses on growing and strengthening your relationship by offering unique interactive activities, romantic ambiance, and a delicious snack to enjoy during your custom curated date.
The monthly subscription box service is for anyone who wants to invest in their relationship with their significant other or for those looking to give a great gift to another couple.
Date Crate’s creators, Renae Renfrew & Hala Osman are no strangers to life getting busy. Each have a two-year-old Child, partners who lead busy careers and both are in a position without family around to help out with babysitting. Without on-tap babysitters they found themselves having to create their own date night experiences with their partner that didn’t require them to leave the house.
After sharing some of their dates on social media with their friends, the demand to mass produce the dates was heard and Date Crate was born.
“When life gets busy one of the first things we tend to neglect is our relationship with our partner.” Renae Renfrew said. “As a new parent, your priorities completely change but it is critical to continue dating your partner at any age and stage of your relationship”
Hala Osman added, “I found when we purposely set out time to invest in our relationship and take a minute to reconnect , we were better partners, better parents, and better individuals.”
Each monthly box contains four to six items that circle around that month’s theme, which have included dates like Art & Soul, Escape Room, Parisian Nights and much more.
“We are finding many people are purchasing our date boxes for gifts like baby showers, engagement parties, wedding gifts, and, anniversary’s.
We put in a lot of effort to make sure the items in the box will help couples create a memorable experience and provide each couple with a fun date night in the comfort of their own home.” Renae Renfrew said.
