While we all love a good night in, entertainment activities run low after a week or two, especially with kids. No worries, subscription services can still deliver the fun, no matter rain, sleet, snow or social distancing.
Join the “tribe” of like-minded homebodies with a Night In Box subscription. With one for couples and one for families with kids, these two box options can really broaden your entertainment options at home, allow the kids to get creative and help the whole family make some fun memories — all in the comfort of your own home.
Each Kids Night In box is actually an expertly curated kit, created by parents and educators — so just think of it as a jazzed up way for the kids to play with purpose and learn a little as they create. Kids Night In boxes include a custom book, music and a treat, with a slew of ways to interactively play, sneakily teaching them educational lessons.
Each box is suggested for ages 3–8, and one–two children at play. The Kids Night In Box also comes in a sensory kit option for tactile experiences, at $30 per kit. Each box is different, so the kids will pleasantly surprise with each delivery.
Yes, parents can get in on the fun, too. Whether you’re holding up at home to avoid crowds, weather or overspending on date night, this box can help. With interactive activities, various accessories for ambiance, high-quality mixers and snacks, chef-curated recipes and tips on communicating and connecting, consider this box your go-to for a build-your-own night in with your partner.
Customers can even gift a box for a special occasion, or no reason, for one month or more — beginning at $50 a month.
With more than 80,000 families and 200,000 couples keeping a Night In routine, your crew will be in good company. Check in on social media and stay connected with #workerWednesdays on Facebook and Instagram, or follow along with Night In Boxes @datenightinbox and @kidnightinbox. The South Carolina-based company is also socially responsible, so you can even support the community by staying in — well played.
While we wait patiently for the go-ahead to travel, Crystal Cruises offers some home-bound programming with Crystal@Home. The virtual cruise experience was created to appease the wandering traveler’s eye and inspire future vacation plans, all from the comfort of home — a growing theme in the industry, but a novel idea in the cruising world.

While we may be physically restricted as to where we travel, that doesn’t stop the wandering spirit from feeling the need to explore. With the rise of virtual tourism, we can do just that — explore, but from home.
