One of the more popular gift ideas I’ve heard of for couples on a budget is a homemade coupon book filled with ideas for spending time together. I personally like the idea of a homemade coupon book, but I know some people feel anything that involves cutting, pasting, and crayons is really more of a project for children.
Datevitation takes the coupon idea a step further by offering you ideas for customized date coupons you can make. The suggestions range from the typical breakfast in bed or double date with friends to skydiving adventures or a trip to Vegas.
There are even sections for alcohol or sex related activities, if you’re trying to spice things up. Pick the coupons you like and the company will create a personalized professionally bound book for you to give your special someone.
What I like about Datevitation is that it makes the idea of a homemade gift easier for people who aren’t crafty. The illustrations are really cute and some of the suggestions for dates are much more inventive than anything I would have come up with.
Another interesting aspect of the company’s service is that they are gay-friendly. When you make your book, you are specially asked if you want to include illustrations featuring straight, gay, or lesbian couples. I’m straight, but I think it’s wonderful that the company is committed to nurturing loving relationships of all types.
Datevitation books start at just $20, so this is a fairly thrifty way to create a memorable anniversary present for your sweetheart.
What do you think? Is this a gift you’d like to give or receive?
