Bonjour your face. Of the thrifty variety? In need of a gift for someone else of the thrifty variety or friend starting down the thrifty path?

Why not do something sweet and simple like take your friend shopping? ¬†Draw up a homemade coupon (lots of links below) for a day at your favourite charity shop filled village. Include a spending limit/or outfit for a specific event and stipulate you’ll be including cream tea or a picnic.
How to present the coupon?
Once you’ve printed or made your coupon you can present in all manner of ways.
- Create a word search with clues as to where to find the coupon.
- Print out a picture of your favourite charity shop, glue to a piece of thick cardboard, glue the coupon to the back and then cut into jigsaw pieces.
- Place inside a beautiful thrifted frame and add a note that you plan to take a photo of you two on your day out to include at a later date.
Easy, peasy, charity shop squeeze-y.
