Being new parents, the time we have to ourselves is pretty rare and precious to us. We have only been out of the house on dates a couple of times since Greyson was born but we love to try to make use of our time together after he goes to bed. This movie night date crate is the perfect way to have a date night at home while your little one is asleep! Share some popcorn, a Redbox movie and Häagen-Dazs® ice cream in these DIY “yours and mine” ice cream bowls for a quiet date night at home.
Even before Greyson was born, we have always enjoyed our quiet evenings at home. It’s definitely always fun to dress up and go out on a dinner date, but there’s something equally as special to us about curling up on the couch to watch a movie together. Steven is a big movie buff, while I could probably name on two hands the movies I’ve seen this year so far. However, we both always agree that if we are watching a movie together, it’s going to be a great night.
For a fun date night, I made this Movie Night Date Crate for Steven to “invite” him to a special date night in watching a Redbox and eating ice cream together. No movie night is complete without popcorn either, so this date crate includes that as well as some cute bottles to enjoy whatever beverage sounds good to us for the evening.
We can share ice cream flavors, but tend to have a craving for something different so we usually indulge in our own Häagen-Dazs pints. One of my all time favorite ice cream flavors is Strawberry and Steven loves Butter Pecan. To go in this date crate, I made us our own ice cream bowls so we know exactly whose is whose.
These bowls were made using my Silhouette Portrait. See similar projects here:
As new parents, it’s really easy to get complacent about spending quality time together. For Steven and I, quality time is one of both of our love languages, so we know it’s important for us. When there’s a baby in the mix, it’s easy to be “too tired” or just simply forget to prioritize time together. This movie night date crate is such an easy way to show that you’re thinking about the important of your quality time with your spouse, whether there’s a baby in the mix or not!
To make this date night even easier to accomplish, right now you can get a free movie night from Redbox® when you buy any two Häagen-Dazs products at Walmart. Simply buy two products, text “Redbox” to 35350 and submit your receipt and enjoy a free movie night with a promo code provided! You can also see if there is a live demo happening 6/30, 7/2, and 7/3 at your local Walmart here.
This is the perfect date night for new parents to dedicate some quality time to each other while the baby is asleep or anyone who just wants a quiet date night at home!
