I purchased the family dates nights full set and have not received an email with the files
Hello Britt! Please, reach out to our customer service team at firstname.lastname@example.org. They will be more than happy to help get the files to you!! Thanks!!
My 3 kiddos are so hard to shop for! This sounds like the perfect Christmas gift for them! Every year they ask for an “experience” gift which typically includes some sort of date idea so what a better way than to gift them with a full year of them! Can you tell me about how much the supplies, etc. will cost for each date night?
What a wonderful gift! I hope your kiddos love it! Aside from the cost of printing everything out, there are no major additional materials. Most of the items you could find around your house. I looked through each date and here are the only possible extra cost items: glow sticks, water balloons, Easy right! Enjoy!
When giving this as a gift, how do you recommend storing all the cut out pieces so it’s organized?
Good question! I added an extra clear plastic sleeve for each month with all of the cut out pieces inside to keep it organized. You could also do a manilla envelope if you wanted to- labeled for each month.
I am so excited about this!! Perfect timing to get it all prepped and printed to start up in January! YAY!
Hi! I wondered what ages (of kids) this is best for? I’m considering purchasing for some friends but don’t know if the ideas will be too immature for there 11 & 13 year olds. Thanks!
That is a great question, Kristen! I think this pack would be perfect for that age group! The activities include water fights, scavenger hunts, mini golf, unique spins on dinner etc. It does come in a PDF form, though, so if there are any activities you don’t think they will love you can skip printing those and choose something else from our Bonus Ideas Page or replace it with a gift card or another activity.
I hope that helps! What a great gift idea!
