Datevitation Review and Giveaway!

Datevitation
The hearts cover is so adorable!!


True story- when I was little, I had a period of being obsessed with making these little "coupon books" for my friends and family. I forgot where I got the idea, but I distinctly remember giving one to my mom on mother's day, and another friend for her birthday. It seemed like such a nice and unique present for someone that you love.

So when Datevitation, contacted me recently, I was intrigued. They're a company that makes custom love coupon books, similar to the ones I used to put together in my childhood- but a lot more fancy (i.e. not with spiral notebook paper & pen :P) They asked me if I wanted to make my own book and review it, and I was delighted to try it out :)

So what even is a "love coupon book?" Glad you asked. It's a little gift book to give you someone full of "coupons" that they are able to "redeem" with you later. They'll all say something like... "This coupon is good for one kiss, anywhere, anytime." Or, "I'll take you on a picnic in Central Park! Name the date." As you can imagine, you can really go anywhere with this idea... and Datevitation has over 500 of them complete with illustrations.


The experience of making a book is super easy. First, it guides you through and asks for the genders of the involved parties, and whether the relationship is romantic or friendly. You then choose a cover for your book- it can be for a special occasion- like Christmas or a birthday- or just to say I love you.

Then you get to pick your dates, which are grouped by category. If you're a thrill-seeker, you can look under the "Adrenaline" tag. If you're more of a sensitive soul, maybe go for "Artistic" dates. And so on. You can even choose things like "Win an argument," or "Remote control." Hell, I made one telling Matt I'd clean the entire apartment! They also have more adult (ahem... sexy) options...

As you pick out your dates, you can customize the words, and even upload your own photos to go with the illustrations.

Long story short, I wanted to wait until Christmas to give Matt his little booklet, but couldn't wait. I just handed it to him out of the blue one day recently. He was touched, felt appreciated, and thought it was really cute :)
