Romantic Gift Baskets for Couples

Romantic baskets are so fun to give as wedding or anniversary gifts. Our amazing readers (that’s YOU!) love, love, LOVE our Open When Letters Kit! And what’s not to love? Gorgeous designs, and everything you need for an easy to prep, heartfelt gift for the honey. We always want to give you more of what you love, so we decided to put a fun twist on the Open When letters and take it a step further, creating these night in boxes! You’ll be ready for a fun night in any time you need it!

Prepping each date in a box would also be a great wedding or anniversary gift! It’s a kind of modern, romantic gift baskets for couples! But instead of a romantic basket full of random items that may or may not get used, give the gift of a year of dates in a box!

Included in this kit is everything you will need to prepare these amazing boxes — from decorating the outside of the box as well as the inside of the box, and creative ideas for everything in between. By the time you’re done prepping, you’ll have a year of dates in a box!
