Date Night Ideas For When You're Trying to Save Money

I'm sure you've picked up on this (ahem - Drink on Fleek) but I LOVE making cocktails. CB and I have been trying to save money - you know, that whole wedding thing we gotta do - so we're always on the lookout for something inexpensive we can do together at home for date night. When I found out there was a date night idea that would allow me to share my love of cocktail making and hanging out with CB, I was pumped. 

When we eat out for date night, we always end up spending upwards of $75 after drinks and tip. We needed something cheaper, but still just as fun. Enter: Datebox! You guys are going to totally dig this.

Datebox sends you a package each month, full of everything you will need for a festive themed date night! For example, our cocktail kit had a jigger, shaker, strainer, stirring spoon, bottle opener and complete recipes for both cocktails and mocktails. Plus, it had all of the instructions to learning a new game (cribbage) and coasters that doubled as conversation starters! 

Themes could include a sushi rolling class, paint and cake pop kit, indoor camping or a coffee roasting kit. A new Datebox, with a totally new theme, arrives on your doorstep each month. 

They seriously thought of everything you'll need. I mean, it comes with a Spotify playlist specifically designed for each individual Datebox. Tell me that isn't adorable?

I connected my phone into our bluetooth speaker and cranked up the curated Spoitfy playlist. We prepped for our cocktail and laughed at each other's answers as we asked the "get to know you" questions. I mean, we've been together for almost 3 years, but it's still fun to ask each other random questions we never knew!

You know, had I asked more random questions in the early stages of our relationship, perhaps bagel-gate might not have been so traumatic for me.

So what are we waiting for here, let's bust out the cocktails.
I made the blueberry mojito recipe that was included in the kit.
Yes, it tasted as good as it looks!

Staying in doesn't have to be boring, and you certainly don't have to limit yourself to Netflix and Chill. Check out a Datebox subscription instead! It is just the cutest thing and you and your S.O. will have a blast learning something new together.


I definitely want to try their sushi making class next! 
What do you guys like to do for date night? Do you ever make cocktails together? Or even better, make sushi together?? 

MMMM, sushi 🤤
