Mystery Date Kit Ideas?
September 15, 2012 6:20 AM Subscribe
My good friends are getting married and I'd like to give them 5 or 6 "mystery date kits." What would you put into the boxes if you could only spend about $10 per box and/or use some stuff from around your house?

The idea is that I give them the boxes and they aren't supposed to open them until they're ready to have a date, then they have to do whatever is in the box. I'll write on the boxes how much time each one should take and if it's indoor or outdoor.
I've got some ideas already, but I'm curious if you might have some neat ideas I haven't thought of, so any help would be much appreciated. The couple is in their mid/late twenties, usually up for anything, and we all live in the South Jersey/Philadelphia area (but location specific ideas aren't super important.)
So far, this is what I have:
- blanket fort kit containing some sheets, clothespins and a flashlight.
- a $5 gift card to a coffee shop and a book of Mad Libs.
- a cell phone guided scavenger hunt in Philly (actually already bought this on Groupon for $3 with a discount) and some cash for snacks or drinks along the way.
- a $5 gas card, a disposable camera and a map of a pretty area to drive around and take pictures.
Thanks in advance for your help and please let me know if there's any other info you need from me.
