A MUM has revealed she didn’t spend a penny on her son’s Christmas presents a few years ago thanks to a simple yet fun free idea.
UK-based Sarah Payne shared the idea on Facebook to help other families who could be struggling this year.
Taking to the Facebook group Family Lockdown Tips & Ideas, she wrote: “After an awful year which has left people in unwanted positions personally and financially, I just wanted to share this idea what I did for my son a few years ago for Christmas.
“Didn't cost a thing and he loved redeeming his vouchers.”
She shared a photo of little coupons she had printed off which included things such as “breakfast in bed”, “invite a friend over for a sleepover” and a “games night”.
Other vouchers said “stay up an extra hour before bed”, “read a book together” and a “baking afternoon”.
Didn't cost a thing and he loved redeeming his vouchers.
She said she found templates for the vouchers for free on Pinterest but said you can easily make your own.
The present not only is free to give, but will also help you build lots of new memories with your family.
People were quick to praise the idea, particularly as 2020 has been so hard for many families.
One said: “I did this last year for my daughter, it was lovely using them through the year.”
Another added: “Such a fab idea love it.”
