Before you head into Black Friday, give this a thought:
site de rencontre ho chi minh Years ago, my husband and I had, for I don’t remember what reason, no money at all at Christmas time. Things were TIGHT. I was more than slightly panicked wondering how I was going to get Christmas presents for the kids, because the reality was that there just wasn’t the money for it. That year, out of necessity, was born one of our family’s greatest Christmas traditions: Christmas coupons.

Things like: “you can stay up an hour later”, “good for one extra hour of screen time”, “I will make your favorite dessert tonight”, were HUGE hits. My husband gave them coupons like, “I will take you to the Maserati dealer to look at the cars”, and “Let’s go sledding!”. The kids LOVED them. The next year, they started asking for their favorite coupons well before they ever asked for any stuff.

It was so wonderful, those letters were so moving and precious, that I have asked for nothing else ever since. I’ll post a picture of one of the letters my youngest gave me for Mother’s Day this year.
