Datevitation: A Review + Giveaway!

I've always prided myself on being a pretty good gift giver. I look all throughout the year for the perfect presents for the people that are closest to me. When I was younger, one of my favorite things to do was make coupon books for people. They were always perfect because they let me really reflect on my relationship with each person and focus on the things that person loves.
Note: I received this product free of charge for review purposes. All opinions are my own.

But as a 25 year old, some construction paper and glitter isn't going to cut it anymore, right? Enter: Datevitation! When Datevitation contacted me about discussing their product on my blog, I was so excited. If you're looking for a small, creative gift for someone, there really isn't anything better. There are lots of coupon books that you can purchase on the internet, but none are as customizable as the ones you can make on Datevitation.com.
The people at Datevitation gave me the chance to create my own coupon book, and let me tell you guys, I was impressed from start to finish. There are over 500 date ideas that you can choose from. 500!!! Don't let that overwhelm you though: they're sorted by category. Whether you're looking for all adventure, romantic date ideas, or a variety, they'll be sure to have something for you. I decided to choose a variety of activities. I like adventure, but I also like wine. You feel me?
Like I said, everything is super customizable. You choose a cover first, and then a short greeting on the inside, and then it's time to choose your dates! Once you choose your five dates, you can change the text on each coupon. For example, if you're going to a vineyard, you can name that specific vineyard on the coupon! I was able to incorporate one of our inside jokes into one of the coupons, and I just love that.
My favorite part about Datevitation coupon books is that you can add your own faces in! How adorable, right? (This part is easy, but when you're doing it, I found that the best thing to do is use the same picture for both of your faces so the lighting/coloring is the same.)
Super cool, right? Like I said, the fact that everything is SO customizable is really what sets Datevitation apart from other companies.
You really can't go wrong with a Datevitation coupon book this Christmas. Datevitation is run by an adorable husband and wife team (read more about them here), so you'll be buying a product from a small family company as opposed to a huge company who doesn't care about you. And books start at only $25, so it's super affordable in addition to being totally cute.

As a special treat for my followers, you can use the code  ALYSSA10  for $10 off your purchase plus free shipping (total value of $13.50)  That means you can get your loved one a one-of-a-kind gift for Christmas starting at just $15!  The order cut-off date for guaranteed delivery by Christmas is December 13 so make sure to get your order in before then! I ordered mine on a Wednesday and got it on Saturday afternoon, so shipping is super fast.

And the best part? Datevitation is giving away a book to one of my readers! You know the drill - enter on the Rafflecopter below. Do it fast, the giveaway ends in just two days!!

I did this for my husband (boyfriend at the time) for his birthday in March. He hasn't redeemed a single coupon!!

They are a good idea if the person is one to use coupons, if they are not then it is not such a good idea
