Answers to your Questions


What is the difference between regular and colour coded dates?

All our date boxes/jars use a selection of coloured envelopes. The only difference is the colour coded ones determine the type of dates that are inside – so if you know you want to stay in that week (it’s nowhere near payday/no babysitters/busy weekend) choose blue. Want a night out? choose yellow etc. The regular set is more of a lucky dip where any colour could contain any type of date.

I’ve lost the key for the Categorised dates, what do the colour of envelopes mean?

The categorised dates come in 4 colours of envelopes:

  • Blue – Staying home
  • Yellow – Going out
  • Orange – A surprise
  • Green – A day out

2024 update – the two versions have been changed, there is now just the colour coded set of cards being sent out.

Are the cards suitable for same sex couples?

There is no mention of gender on the cards so they can be used by everyone.

If a decision needs to be made the person opening the envelope will be asked to flip a coin and choose heads or tails.

How are the orders put together?

All the orders are packed by us in our studio, we take great pride in our work and only send out items we would be happy to receive ourselves. Occasionally we might make a mistake – we’re only human after all – things can get damaged in transit too. If there are any issues with your order when you receive don’t hesitate to get in touch.

The envelopes are sealed by hand in most products, we won’t be able to tell you which card is in which envelope as they are done in batches, if you would like to know the contents of the envelopes to plan surprises around the cards then please let us know and we can send the cards and envelopes separately for you to fill.

The date cards and birthday sets are printed and sealed, these are collated by hand, the cards are numbered so please let us know if you have any duplicates.

What is on the cards?

We obviously can’t reveal ALL our of secrets! There is some cross over between the different products with some of the most popular ideas appearing in all of the sets.

The activities are a range of things to do at home, nights out and days out . Some you might have thought of yourself, or be things you do regularly, but how you interpret the card is up to you. All of the envelopes are sealed so you get a surprise each time, if you don’t like what the card says you don’t have to do it, it’s about having fun, but it is also good to try things so don’t just dismiss it.

We haven’t suggested anything dangerous, illegal or scary – there are blank cards in some sets so if you want to swim with sharks or jump out of an aeroplane you can add these yourself.

I don’t have time to do all these things

We know you are busy; a lot of the cards can be done at home in an evening or can fit in with your lifestyle. You also don’t have to open one every week, make it work for you, if just takes a bit of effort.

There’s a lot of paper being wasted!

All of the paper can be recycled and where possible we use sustainable products. We recycle all of our waste and use any excess packing material to protect our glass jars when posting.

Our boxes are produced using greyboard which is made from a mix of recycled and waste paper and is 100% Recyclable.

Where possible we source from FSC certified suppliers, which make up the vast majority of our suppliers.

I ordered special delivery, the email I have states £750?
