It was my nephew’s birthday on Thursday.  G turned 14.  He is a wonderful boy who is becoming a really lovely young man.  He was proactive with his present lists this year and circulated gift ideas early.  We got him a voucher so he can go and choose what he wants.  I have to say it is pretty hard choosing pressies for teenage boys.  I suspect my tastes are far removed from his.

Every year I also do a lighthearted gift.  This year, because I had a bit of time on my hands, I pulled together a coupon book full of treats – and lovely things like coupons for a kiss from his favourite Aunt – me! But it was also a good opportunity to include activities we like doing together, but which often don’t make it onto our respective busy calendars – things like movies, pizza making lessons, sushi.  This is a great budget friendly gift which you can tailor to your own circumstances.

After much searching I found a great template at kodak, it was easy to use and came up a treat.  And because I wanted to make the coupon book extra special I took to it with glue and glitter.  Just what every 14 year old boy wants and needs.


Happy Birthday G!
