Free printable gift coupons for kids. Frugal but popular – a gift kids can use over the holidays to create family memories that last longer than toys.
With kids, it’s the simple things that really make an impact.
Gift coupons are as simple as they come, but kids love them.
Maybe it’s the anticipation. The promise of lots of fun to come. Or maybe it’s because they have a little power over what they can do with their time. To some extent, they can cash in an activity on demand.
But it’s not just the kids that gift coupons work well for. They are a frugal stocking stuffer and they are a good way to keep the kids entertained over the summer school holidays.
Today I’m sharing the coupons I’ve made for our kids this Christmas. I’ve been playing around with the free Photoshop trial, and I’ve had a lot of fun creating these coupons.
I printed them out on light cardboard (by which I mean, the friendly staff at Officeworks printed them for me, since our printer broke this year). It cost $3, it would have been less than $2 if I had them printed on paper.
What do you think?
Most of these coupons are frugal, easy and things we would do over the summer holidays anyway. Having a coupon makes those activities that little bit extra special.
You may need to set limits on the coupons for your own sanity. Like only being allowed to use one a day. This also extends the fun.
The important thing about gift coupons for kids is that it shouldn’t put unnecessary stress on you.
I’ve made some blank coupons if you would like to write out your own. If you already had plans for this summer holiday, turn them into a coupon for a surprise on Christmas day (and something else to look forward to, after Christmas day is over).
