50 Unique Dates!
50 First Dates is the perfect way to keep your honeymoon phase alive forever. Really! Our intention with these dates is for both of you to truly feel like you're dating your partner for the first time again. This book gives you the opportunity to experience activities you've never thought to do before, all while learning and growing beside your partner.
We made these books in the hopes of providing loving couples with "outside of the box" ideas for their date nights! It's always a fun time to go out to your favorite restaurant or go see a movie, but what about the nights where you just want to do something new? That's where we come in!
Are These Dates Right For You?
Inside the book, you'll find guidance on how, when, and where your dates should take place, as well as the expected price of each date! Likewise, none of our dates are location specific, identity specific, or income exclusive. We intended for our dates to be accessible to as many people as possible, while also giving options for people to make their dates as cost effective and specific to themselves as they wish to.
As the creators of these books, as well as romantic partners, we wanted to create a long lasting experience that could bring couples closer together the same way it did for us. Below is the story of why we started documenting our dates and how they became these two books!
There was a time in our lives when Amanda was in Law School and Julian was working full time, so we had to get creative with our limited time together. As a Valentine's Day gift one year, Julian bought a blank journal and immediately started filling it with dates. These dates were then covered by Post-It notes and complemented with a title and poorly drawn doodles to give Amanda some vague hints as to what she should expect. That journal only had about 15 dates in it by the time Valentine's Day came around, but it became a beloved gift and we both knew that it was something we wanted to keep adding too.
This blank journal ended up turning into the gift that kept on giving as we ran through the original 15 dates and then began thinking of new dates to fill it in with together. Now, the rest is history.
Our Quality Commitment
When we say we spent years crafting these dates, we really mean it. We have 100 total dates across both our books, all of which are unique, thoughtful, and of our own creation. If you are a customer of our books and you scratch off a date that they you do not think is original or up to our high quality standard, please reach out to us on social media and we will provide you 5 brand new dates, free of charge, and tailored to your personal interests. That's a guarantee!
Due to the nature of our product, once a date has been scratched off, we cannot accept a return. We are a small business with only four employees currently, including the two creators, and we do not have the ability to repair books that have been scratched off. In the future, we hope to find a solution to this problem by repairing and repurposing used books, but currently, it could put us out of business. For anyone unhappy with the quality of their book, we would refer you back up to our Quality Commitment. You can always reach out to us on social media where you will receive a personal response from Julian or Amanda. We're always happy to provide more dates to anyone interested, even if you didn't have a problem with the book!

And... You’re Supporting A
Small Business With Every Date
These books were originally a handmade Valentines Day gift! So many of our friends and family loved the concept that we decided to make a version that everyone could enjoy!
Are the dates in this book age appropriate for everyone?
Yes! There are no explicit themes in this book. However, there are some dates that suggest the inclusion of alcoholic beverages. For these dates, we provide alternative suggestions that replace the alcoholic drinks with Kombucha or sparkling fruit juice!
What makes these dates unique?
Between 50 First Dates & Bombshell Dates, we attempted to write 100 of the most exciting and unique moments that two people can share together. We had many different approaches to how we wrote them. Sometimes we would focus on sharing atypical hobbies and activities with people, sometimes we’d take a classic date idea and try to add a unique twist to it, and sometimes we’d create an entirely new activity all together! The ideas in these books are extremely diverse, so some of them might not be your cup of tea, but others might end up giving you some of your best memories together! :)
How does being a small, family owned business, impact these books?
Our dates were written 100% from the minds of two people in love and we wanted these dates to allow other people to share incredible memories with each other! We care so much about the dates we share, the quality of our books, and the way we treat our customers.
We used this business as a way to involve everyone in our family as well! Our social media is run by Amanda’s brother and his girlfriend! Our order fulfillment is handled by Julian and Amanda, with help from Amanda’s parents. This business and these books wouldn’t be possible without putting family first.
Are there sample dates that I can see before buying?
Yes! We post date ideas on our instagram and TikTok! If you check them out and like them, please consider giving us a follow to help a small business :)
What is the return policy?
We accept returns within a 30 day period as long as no damage occurred to the book after its delivery. Unfortunately, this does not allow you to explore the product very thoroughly because scratching off any of the silver scratch-off layers inside of the book counts as damaging the book. If you’d like examples of the dates before purchasing, we show free dates on our social media!
