Valentine's Day may be over but that doesn't mean the romance should stop. In this vein, one company is making it easy to plan a date night. “You don't even have to be romantic!” says Leani Engelbrecht of Date Factory Namibia.
She says that with today's busy lifestyle, it is easy for couples to live past each other and it becomes more difficult to spend quality time with your significant other.
“This is where Date Factory comes in. We save you the time of planning a fun date by providing you with everything you need in one box,” she says.
According to her, date nights should not be reserved for Valentine's Day but should rather be something you do on a monthly basis.
“There was a need for something like this in Namibia and the more couples I spoke to, the more I realised that we are not making enough time to spend with our partners. I really hope that I can bring that spark back into relationships and keep the flame growing stronger in each other.”
Still in its infancy steps, Date Factory only opened in January this year. There are currently four themed boxes available. “Boxes contain something to eat, drink and to do. Some of the boxes will require that you get a few extra things, however you will be notified of what you need once you have placed your order,” she says.
All boxes contain fun activities which help you reconnect with your partner. “If the market supports the idea, I will be in a position to launch a new theme on a bi-monthly basis,” Leani says.
So, now there are no more excuses – treat your loved one to something special today!
Leani says you can also treat your favourite couple by purchasing a box as a gift. If you are unsure of what box they would like, you also have the option of purchasing a gift voucher.
Orders can be placed on www.na.datefactory.co.za. Delivery is included in the price for Windhoek, the coast and a few surrounding towns. Boxes are delivered within one to seven days after payment reflects in the bank.
