Comments about IDEA CARDS:

Based on the similarity in cost to Table Topics cards, I assumed that this pack would be similar. I was debating between the 2 options, which are both offered on this site, but picked these for the subject of the cards and for the price.

I really like the CONTENT of the pack: The ideas on the cards themselves are cute, fun ideas for date activities.... or just good ideas for outings with non-romantic friends (for the most part). Many are even activities you could do on your own with an empty afternoon.

However, it is the PRESENTATION that is lacking. I assumed that this would be an item worthy of displaying on a coffee table or bookshelf; that the container would be a clear acrylic box, sturdy and attractive. Unfortunately, the container is a very thin plastic, more like what you would expect a children's toy to come in. Additionally the cards themselves aren't printed on high-quality card stock. They aren't glossy like a pack of playing cards, they are matte and would easily absorb liquid or be torn.

Yes, this pack was slightly less expensive than the sets of Table topics cards I've seen, but definitely far lower quality. Additionally, the packaging they were sent in was not protective enough and the package didn't look presentation-worthy for a gift upon arrival. I am going to keep them for myself for the fun ideas on the cards, but I don't think they're nice enough to be the gift I intended.

          Great ideas!

          By 

          from Ottawa, Canada

          Verified Buyer

          Pros

          • Can Withstand Use
          • Entertaining
          • Fun

          Cons

            Best Uses

            • Passing The Time

            Comments about IDEA CARDS:

            Although a lot of the cards are unoriginal ideas, they provide a basis for a fun night. You can take something as simple as "go to a doughnut shop" and make it an exciting date by visiting some fancy place you wouldn't go on a daily basis as opposed to Tim horton's or Dunkin' Doughnuts. They provide ideas for dates you wouldn't otherwise think of and I'm looking forward to sharing the 80 date challenge with my boyfriend in making each card a unique date!

            Service and delivery comments:

            The service was great when chatting about my delivery but my items didn't ship out for a week after ordered. I got them a day before Christmas and was afraid I wouldn't until the last minute.
