Save money on gifts this holiday season by making personalized coupon books for your friends and family. This DIY gift is cheap, easy, and fun to make! Another way to save money on gifts this holiday season is by giving your loved ones homemade, personalized coupon books that will be sure to pamper them and save them some oh-so-precious time. After all, who couldn’t use a little extra time and pampering after the business of the holiday season?

How to Make a Personalized Coupon Book

What You Need:

My favorite thing about making personalized coupon books is that there is no right or wrong way to do it. They are cheap, easy and a lot of fun to make – plus you can let your creativity and imagination run wild on this project! If you scrapbook, chances are you already have everything you need. Here are some supply guidelines:

  • Decorative paper.
  • Decorations and page accents. These can be anything: decorative letters, buttons, pictures, stickers, glitter, puff paint, ribbon, etc.
  • Glue.
  • Ribbon, yarn, or a binder ring to bind the book together.


How to Create Your Coupon Book:

Once you’ve collected everything you want to use for your coupon book, you can start assembling it. Assembling your personalized coupon books is simple and fun.

  • First, decide how many pages you need and cut the paper to your desired page size.
  • Next, write what each coupon/page is good for. For example, “This coupon is good for one foot rub” or “This coupon entitles the owner to one homemade meal of their choice.”
  • Now it’s time for the fun part – decorating!
  • Bind your coupon pages together and voila! You’re personalized coupon books is ready to go!

 

Ideas for Personalized Coupons:

Not sure what coupons to give? You’re coupons can be for anything from helping with everyday household chores to offering extra pampering. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

  • A foot rub or shoulder massage.
  • A trip to the grocery store.
  • A homemade meal, complete with clean dishes.
  • A manicure and pedicure (by you 🙂 ).
  • A housecleaning.
  • Lunch or dinner out at the restaurant of their choice.

 

Again, these are just a few ideas. Use your skills to tailor your coupons to suit your friends and families needs and wants. Have fun!

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
