Date Can FAQ

WHAT IS A DATE CAN?

It's a little paint can designed for couples that includes 24 different date ideas inside. You can buy a themed can, or have Kate and her team make you a custom one! 

WHY SHOULD WE BUY ONE? 

Your date can is a place to reach your hand into on the nights when you can't decide what to do, or where to go. It's also nice to have the information at your fingertips, instead of spending more time online! Unplug, and enjoy this time with your partner exploring Ottawa. <3 

WHAT IF THE INFORMATION IS INACCURATE?  

Kate signs the date that the can lid is fastened and the information is accurate. However, if it takes you a while to complete these dates – businesses can at any time change their phone numbers, addresses, etc. 

WHAT'S WITH THE HASHTAG: #adatebykatecan ?  

If you share your experiences so that I can see them & re-post, you could win random prizes throughout the year. 

HOW DO WE KNOW HOW MUCH EACH DATE WILL COST US? 

If you purchase a custom date can, we tailor the ideas to how much money you generally spend. If you purchase a themed date can, it'll vary. If you cannot afford the date spot, put the idea back in the can and save it for later. 

WHAT IF WE'RE ON A TIGHT BUDGET? 

That's no problem! You can go into a fancy restaurant and have 1 drink, or the entire bottle. If you can't afford the date, put it back and use the can as a piggy bank. ;)

IS THIS DATE CAN SUITABLE FOR UNDER 18 YEAR OLDS? 

I would recommend a custom date can for anyone underage who cannot drink or gamble. 

IS THIS DATE CAN SUITABLE FOR OVER 60 YEAR OLDS? 

I would recommend a custom date can if there are specifics. Otherwise, something like a Relaxation Themed can could be suitable, or a Foodie can to try different restaurants around the city. 

WHAT IF WE CAN'T FIND A BABYSITTER?

If you do want a night alone, I found you a trusted daycare provider that offers DATE NIGHT service. It's called ProCare and is just off Parkdale Avenue. Here's the video I made to show you their space: click here.
