At Custom Boxes Now, we love highlighting some of our favorite clients every month. It’s always tough to narrow it down to a single favorite, but this month, we’re highlighting the ever-fun Datebox. Datebox is at fun-filled couples’ subscription box service that adds some excitement to long-term relationships or helps newer couples get to know each other even better.
Let’s face it: planning a date every weekend, no matter how much your city has to offer, can sometimes feel like a daunting task. Datebox takes the anxiety out of planning the date by delivering a “readymade” box including everything you need for a memorable and totally unpredictable night with your better half. The best part? All the dates can be done at home, so you can avoid the stress of having to catch a cab, sit in traffic or fight the exhaustion after a long week of being on the go.
You can choose from Datebox’s monthly, 3-month or 6-month plan, with the option to automatically renew your subscription. And don’t worry about running out of dates…Datebox has major plans to expand, and hopes to offer the option of tailor-made boxes based on you and your partner’s specific hobbies, interests and curiosities. In the meantime, past Dateboxes have included planning a pretend road trip, photo competitions, dancing lessons, cooking lessons and even a miniature way to roast marshmallows!
How we Helped
When we partnered with Datebox to create the perfect packaging, we knew we had to get it exactly right. They created a design that wouldn’t give away any secrets about what was inside, but would look festive, elegant and most of all, fun! The result was a series of different custom shipping box options, with both “classic” and “seasonal” takes on the company’s logo and branding strategy.
For one of the more classic Datebox boxes, they opted for a light teal shade with a pattern of interlocked spirals and swirls, with Datebox’s signature “It’s Time For Your Date!” motto written in simple, clean white block lettering. The interior was an ultra-chic, complementary spiral pattern in black and white. The ideal balance between elegant and fun.
For a special “Holiday” box, they went with a classic white and gold cardboard box, with the catchy “All I Want For Christmas Is You” lyrics printed in a golden circle on the interior. And the best part was the interior was sprinkled with printed white and gold hearts and snowflakes to help Dateboxers get into the holiday spirit before they even began their date.
Subscription box services are only getting more and more popular, whether you’re a foodie, a bookworm or simply looking for a way to spice things up between you and your hot date. We were thrilled to have the chance to work with Datebox, a service that takes the guesswork out of planning the sought-after “perfect date.” With the just right blend of spontaneity and convenience, Datebox caters to couples with a variety of different interests from all walks of life.
