Date night now in a box thanks to a clever Newcastle mum


‘Love at First Bite’ – that’s the theme of the inaugural Little Party Crew box, launching tonight.

The brainchild of Newcastle mother-of-five Amanda Wilson, the date-night prompt is set to see couples cooking, conversing, eating, and laughing together at least once a month.

Delivered to the door, the monthly boxes will include conversation starters, ingredients, recipes, games, drinks and snacks and are designed to keep fun in relationships.

The boxes are the product of six-months of planning.

After juggling full-time work and the regular commitments that come with a blended family of five aged between ten and 14, the education worker with a background in events management sought a creative solution to keeping her romance alive.

“My partner and I both loved date nights but with us both working full-time and juggling five kids we found we were both too tired to be creative,” Ms Wilson said.

“We just wanted fun stuff to do together without all the stress.”

Ms Wilson soon learned she wasn’t alone in her thinking.

“We knew other busy parents and professional couples were in the same predicament and now more than ever with COVID and Lockdown restrictions stopping any type of date night, it seemed the perfect time to start.”

Last month the busy mum convinced her hairdresser to be her first ‘guinea pig’.

“She’s a newlywed but both her and her hubby are super busy and work all hours so I asked her to give it a try for me,” Ms Wilson said.

“They loved it, they said ‘it was a convenient way to be able to achieve a fab date night with no stress’.”

The boxes will have a different theme every month. 

This month’s theme is Love at First Bite.

“So it is a cooking together box,” Ms Wilson said.

“It includes custom aprons for two, artisan snacks for two, delicious custom Love Potion drinks, cooking ingredients, a custom playlist to set the mood,  a mood setting gift, booklet with a step-by-step guide, as well as conversation starters and games.”

Each box, costing $119, will contain “everything required for a date night at home and require no planning and no babysitters”, Ms Wilson says.

“It’s a solution for all of us, especially during these lockdown days, to keep the love alive.”

Little Party Crew also have a Party for One box available for singles to enjoy a fun night alone at home. 

Little Party Crew are launching their first Date Night Box on Friday 16th July from 6pm.
