Coupons. Who doesn't love them? Those little slips of paper that are worth a few dollars off your next purchase of something or other. But I also adore those other kinds of coupons -- the ones we make ourselves that we give to loved ones for Valentine's Day or Father's Day or birthdays.
These coupons are perfect for stocking stuffers. For this Friday Fit Club, have your kiddos make a whole book of them for each parent or siblings -- and the Christmas spirit will last through the whole year. Put your own creative juices to work and make one for your partner. They don't cost a thing, yet may be the most treasured gifts of all.
Do you or your kiddos need some ideas? Here you go:
-- An hour of silence.
-- One day of total control of the remote control.
-- One undisturbed night (perfect from him to you if you have a little one).
-- Dessert first (awesome for your kids).
-- An extra 30 minutes of TV on a school night.
-- Choice of the movie on Movie Night.
-- Pick the music in the car for a week.
-- Breakfast in bed.
-- A manicure (ideal for that hard-to-buy-for tween girl).
-- A chore-free Saturday.
-- Take the kids for a night while the other has "the night off."
-- A back rub.
-- A week without having to do the dishes.
-- An extra 15 minutes before bedtime.
-- Skip one chore.
