Materialize Dropdowns
Materialize CSS provides dropdown facility, it provides several CSS classes to add a dropdown list to any button.  Make sure that the data-activates attribute matches the id in the <ul> tag. You can add a divider with the  <li class="divider"></li> tag. You can also add icons. Just add the icon inside the anchor tag.
<div class="container">
    <!-- Dropdown Trigger -->
    <a class='dropdown-button btn blue' href='#' data-activates='dropdown1'>Click Here!</a>
    <!-- Dropdown Structure -->
    <ul id='dropdown1' class='dropdown-content'>
        <li><a href="#!" class="blue-text">one</a></li>
        <li><a href="#!" class="blue-text">two</a></li>
        <li class="divider"></li>
        <li><a href="#!" class="blue-text">three</a></li>
        <li><a href="#!" class="blue-text">four</a></li>
        <li><a href="#!" class="blue-text">five</a></li>
