Date night? Too many options? Make a date night bottle!

Hello to all the readers. Hope you had a wonderful day so far.

I know sometimes it is a struggle deciding what to do for a date night with that special someone.  All your ideas have been used far too many times already, and you find it hard to come up with new ideas.

To help you make date night decisions easier I made a date night bottle. This bottle has  date night options in that can be randomly selected. This is easy to make and this will make your date nights easier, more memorable and special.

Steps to follow:

Step one

The ingredients needed for the bottle are the following:

  • An empty bottle
  • Ice cream sticks (The amount will depend on how many dates you want to have
  • Paint in three colours
  • Sticker that says date night
  • Pen
  • Any other decorations you want to put on such as hearts, ribbons etc.

Step two

Decorate the bottle

Step Three

Paint the ice cream sticks with  three different colours.

The colours represent the following:

  • First colour is a date that will cost you nothing
  • Second colour is a date that costs money but is not that expensive
  • Third colour is expensive dates


Step four

Make a list of dates that you want to do together and write them on the ice cream sticks with the right colours (a search through google for date night ideas is a good idea)
