What is one of the best gifts a child can give? A DIY Coupon Book, of course! I know I gave many coupons as a child… one for a free hairstyle {cause my mom LOVED having her hair brushed}, walking the dog, doing the dishes, folding the laundry, making the beds, vacuuming.  It’s sort of funny when I look back because most of the stuff was on my “chore list” anyway.  But when someone handed in a coupon I was more apt to jump up with a smile than if it was my “chore” for the day.

DIY Coupon Book - Holiday Gift Idea to Dad from Child

I thought it would be fun to make up a little coupon book that my kiddos could fill in and give to Daddy for Christmas.  I gave them a few ideas with some pre-printed coupons and then printed up a bunch of blank ones that they could fill in with their own ideas. I’ve made the coupon book available as a free download so that you can help your kids create a little something special for their Dad as well. There are two versions available – a holiday one and a non-holiday one, which is perfect for Birthday’s and Father’s Day!
