We've talked about valentines and how most of you love doing it yourself. And I just have to share this amazingly sweet DIY gift that my boyfriend gave me a few years back. I got to use it for a whole year and I secretly wish I have more of them. So what is it? Personal coupons.
He gave me this strange envelope with an accompanying letter saying:
"Ms. Andy Tan, Congratulations!! You have just been given a set of Jay (boyfriend) cards. This entitles the bearer to use the cards to make Jay do things, which involve hugs, shopping, baking, cooking, cleaning and more. However, these cards will only be valid a year from receipt. Enjoy and use your cards well. The use of the cards is subject to terms and agreement and not valid for exchange or monetary equivalent. One card per transaction. From, Jay Enterprises"
Inside the envelope are around fifty small pink coupons with handwritten notes like "buy me that," "cook me lunch," "buy me ice cream," "bake me cookies," "buy me flowers," "shop for a day (Jay's treat)," "give me a hug," "clean the floor," and more sweet stuff.
It was so much fun to use and whenever he gets a bit upset with me, I pull out one give me a hug card and well, he mellows down. And I so enjoyed the shopping and cleaning cards too! And though I don't necessarily need a coupon to have him do all those things, it was just so cute and sweet to use.
What do you think, dolls? What's the sweetest or most unique valentines gift you've ever received? Share, share, share!
