Birthday Boy

It's my son's birthday tomorrow and needed to make up something quick!!  You think I'd learn as it's the same day each year but just coming out of Christmas really sets me back!  The older he gets, the harder it seems to find him that special gift and especially when he just got a bunch for Christmas.  Well I thought about it (quickly) and came up with making him his very own coupon book.  I filled with a bunch of coupons he can take advantage of throughout the year.  You know as a kid there are just things you don't want to do, heck I think we feel that as adults!!!  Anyways, I made up coupons like, One day off of Chores, Free lawn cutting pass, Free vacuuming day, Movie Night and a bunch more personalized for him and his lifestyle.  Knowing my son, he will be very pleased with this gift!!
Products Used:
