Date Night in a Bowl

 Over in our neck of the mountains all of us are students, or just finished being students. 
My husband just got his MBA. 
I am telling you this because if you know anything about school it is expensive. 
We all are broke.
Do we still want to spend time with our man? 
Of course we do!!
Here is a small solution to the problem
A Date In A Bowl.
I got a bowl at the dollar store. Filled it with some microwave popcorn, our favorite candy and some pop in some cute bottles.
I also included a card with a promo code from redbox.
At you can purchase 5 promo codes at a time. 
I just had the gift sent to myself and then as I give these away as gifts I can just put a promo code in the card.
Here are some different drink ideas.
If someone doesn't drink pop you could always put in water bottles with a mix-in.

I like the look of these pop bottles so I am just going to flash this pic to you!

I am thinking these are going to be gifts for all my girls in the neighborhood. 
I gave one to a friend for her birthday and also included in the note free babysitting so they don't have to pay for that either! 
It would also be a greatValentine's Day gift!
Linking up at these parties.
