Ok, so I know this is a HUGE thread...
Has anyone thought of doing personal service gift certificates? I know my aunt gave us a 12 free babysitting coupons one year... I thought it was great because while we like to ask her to babysit, it's nice to know she is also willing to do it.
If there are family/friends in your town, can you print up/color a nice gift certificate that offers them 12 babysitting times... Perhaps for running errands, for date nights, meetings etc.
I think this is a great coupon for newish parents as well as those with a house full.
Here's what I gave FIL one year:
I made a little card enrolling him in the "bread of the week" club. Every week, (for 6 weeks) I'd bake a loaf of bread and deliver it to his house while it was still warm. He loved it,--as soon as I walked in the door, he'd snatch it away and start buttering himself a slice-- and it cost almost nothing.
