★★★★★ "Best thing I have ever bought..."

"I cannot say enough about the date night diary. We have a newborn and have found it tough to find time for each other. The date night diary takes all the stress out of it. We pick a card and off we go. Literally the best purchase ever, my partner and I love it. I would give it more stars if I could."

—Michael Drazic (Western Australia)

How It Works

Step 1: Pick a card, any card

Whether you're able to organise a babysitter or not, pick a card from the STAYING IN DECK or the the GOING OUT DECK. There's 100 diverse date night ideas between them and a few spare cards for you to add in your own favourites.

Step 2: Plan

Gather the items you'll need for your Staying In date night or use the Going Out Check List to ensure you've organised everything before Going Out

Step 3: Enjoy your Date!

Have fun on your date night adventure! Refer to the included conversation starters to keep your conversations from drifting back to the kids or work. And don't forget to take a few photos to stick in your diary.

Step 4: Save the fun times

Print off and stick in your photos and record your memorable moments together to reflect on in the weeks, months and years to come.

Collapsible content

What’s a Date Night?

Can’t remember? Don’t worry, after having kids, neither could we! That’s why we created the Date Night Diary.

Who is the Date Night Diary for?

The Date Night Diary is for every couple striving to keep their love alive in the thick of parenting.

Why do I need one?

You can come up with 100 date night ideas on your own… or you can let us do it for you! ;)
It can be all too easy to let your relationship take a back seat during the wonderful but wild early parenting years. If we don’t intentionally invest in it, we’ll wake up in 20 years when our kids have left home and realize we’re married to a stranger! This Date Night Diary will be the catalyst for you and your partner in reclaiming Date Night and making time for just the two of you again, because you realize that time is so needed, so underrated and so easily forgotten amid raising your family. Go on, fall wildly in love with each other again.

How does it work?

The Date Night Diary helps you and your partner rebuild the weekly habit of Date Night. We are firm believers that “no babysitter” shouldn’t mean no date! That’s why the Date Night Diary comes with two Date Night Decks of activity cards: GOING OUT and STAYING IN – packed full of date ideas that you’ll actually want to do. Simply pick a card! The diary has space to stick in photos and jot down a few memorable moments from each date, as well as weekly Conversation Starter questions to get you talking about topics other than work and the kids.

What are you waiting for!?

Your kids to leave home? Start dating your partner again… and never stop! Reconnect and record the memories while you reclaim the life-giving habit of date night – creating a lifelong keepsake in the process. And hey, we’re not making any promises, but they do say more date nights equal more… well, you know what. ;)

One of the best things we have ever bought for our marriage!

I purchased the Date Night Diary for my wife and I so we could make more intentional one on one time. With three children and shift work it becomes more challenging, but with the diary we plan and set times for each other.

At the moment. We are in the stage of home date nights and having the cards help us pick fun and unique ways to spend time together.

Thanks so much Jeremy and Larissa for the work you have done to make this awesome product happen.

Thank you for your kind words, Kyle! We are so happy to hear that it has been a valuable addition for your marriage. We understand how difficult it can be to find quality time as busy parents, and we are so glad your Date Night Diary has helped you reclaim date nights. We hope you continue to enjoy your date nights in and find new ways to connect and document precious memories together. Thank you for your support!

Cheers! Jeremy and Larissa

Such a good idea

We try our best to use date night in or out once a month. It really helps with new ideas rather than the usual out for a meal. We’ve had our DND for a year now and are really grateful for it. Helps to reconnect after having kids or trying to have kids.

We are so happy to hear that it has helped you and your partner spice up your date nights and reconnect. Parenting is not easy and we totally understand where you're coming from, this is the reason why we spent so much of our time creating the Date Nights to help parents reclaim their romance. We hope it continues to bring new and exciting ideas for your future dates. Happy dating!

Rediscovering the Love of my Life

So, I'm a dad, dad bod and New Balances included. 3 kids, no money instead of no kids and 3 money.
My wife and I set out this year deliberately to actually date, I've ordered this date book and sorted out a babysitter, life is in progress. While we await our first babysitting session, the staying in date ideas take over and they have been amazing. Read the card a couple of days before date night and organise what you need, make sure to bring up the conversation topic and simply reap the benefits of remembering why you loved someone enough to spend the next 18 years waking up to kids screaming.
100% worth the price, I have no creativity and this has been a godsend to my strong, silent typecast for conversation starters.
Incredibly keen for the Dadventures to be back in stock, I am going to put Bluey's dad Bandit to shame with how popular I will be!

Thank you SO much, Robert, for sharing your experience! That's the best review I've read all year (and last year!). We're over the moon to hear that the Date Night Diary is already working for you and reviving the love in your house (even before a babysitter!). Well done for being intentional about date nights with your wife this year! It's not always easy, but it's always worth it.

We really appreciate your kind words and encouragement. Reviews like yours are what motivate us to continue to solve problems for parents like us. Good news, the latest iteration of our Dadventure Diary - Box Set is off to the printers and will be available for pre-order very soon.

Thanks for your support!

Great Book of Ideas!

We haven't used it yet as we just opened it from its packaging, as we go through the pages, card activities, ideas and suggestions, we couldn't be more stoked and really excited to be filled with joy reclaiming our romance! (After having 4 kids!)

Thanks so much for you encouraging review!

We are absolutely thrilled to hear your excitement and joy as you explore our Date Night Diary. It warms our hearts to know that our pages, card activities, ideas, and suggestions have already sparked enthusiasm in reclaiming romance. Wishing you and your family a wonderful journey filled with love and connection!

The perfect gift - re-dating each other

This diary encouraged us to start dating each other again. After kids, and not having any family supports, dating went by the wayside. It's the best gift to give each other and our kids 🥰

Reclaim The Romance...

Why wait?

Yes, finding time for dating your partner again amongst the busyness of life can be hard...
But, with the Date Night Diary, it is not only FUN and REWARDING but it'll change and reinvigorate your relationship forever.
