Yes, I’m sure you’ve heard of homemade coupon books before or you have been given one of these things before. BUT, they are the quintessential holiday gift. Plus, I find that it means more to receive these. What was the the old adage?
“It’s the thought that counts!” *cue eyeroll*
Homemade coupons ooze thought, though. Also, it gives you a great reason to stay local when shopping.
- Know that your friend has a ton of kids? BAM! One free night of babysitting.
- Overheard that your husband likes doughnuts? HERE YOU GO! One dozen crawlers whenever you want ’em.
- Think that your parents won’t let you stay up as late as you want? YOU’VE BEEN SERVED. Bedtime’s been moved an hour later.
- Has your boss been complaining of a sore back? WHA-BAM! Free back massage.
These are just a couple of examples. But, let your imagination run wild. (But, I’d probably rethink giving your boss a coupon for a back massage. It may get awkward.)
