This Christmas coupon book is an inexpensive and simple stocking stuffer for kids. Just print, cut, and you’re on your merry way!
Are you ready for Christmas? We’re wrapping up the last of our Christmas shopping, and we’re set to enjoy the rest of the season without last-minute shopping hanging over our heads. Hooray!
In fact, my husband said to me last night that he was pleasantly surprised that he was enjoying the Christmas season more than usual this year. Sometimes, things just get too crazy, we get over-scheduled, and then we forget to really celebrate the birth of our Savior the way he would intend–by being with family and serving those around us who could use an extra measure of love.
This year, we’ve really tried to simplify our gift-giving and make time for those Christmas traditions that really bring us joy. And, it’s working!
I have one last Christmas project that I’ve been working on, though, and now that it’s complete I wanted to share it with you…
Free printable Christmas coupons!These are going to be my kids’ stocking stuffers this year. They are just the right size to tuck into stockings on Christmas Eve, and the coupons will be inexpensive (mostly free) to redeem. Which is good, because I feel like there are so many “stocking stuffer guides” out there with ideas for gifts that cost a LOT of money. Sorry, I’m just not putting $100 event tickets in a stocking.
In my house growing up, stockings were for candy, an orange, a candy cane, and maybe one small toy or activity. And I was completely satisfied.
I’m taking a page out of my parents’ book (they’re wise, ya know), and keeping things simple with our stockings, too. Besides, I’m in a bit of a minimalist phase, and I don’t want to add lots of STUFF to my home.
Instead of rinky dink toys, I want to give my kids lots of love and experiences. That’s where these coupons come in…they’re a perfect way to treat my kids to a few special privileges and experiences without spending much or cluttering our house.This set includes three pages of printable coupons, plus a page that has blank coupons if you’d like to customize them.
Ideas for coupons to give to kids:
- date night with mom or dad
- stay up late
- extra screen time
- choice of home cooked meal
- go out for ice cream
- get out of a chore (or NO chores for a whole day!)
- trip to the dollar store
- movie night (kid’s choice)
- family game night
