Gift: The “Coupon” Book
Price: Priceless

Inspired by Shannon’s comment last year, we highlight this amazing idea. The gift is a “coupon book” specifically made for your friend or family member. It is “redeemable” when they visit you or on their own. This is how she describes it:

“Along with things like dinner at our favorite Vietnamese restaurant and hunting for the sausage most resembling a traditional Lithuanian *skilanti* at Brighton Beach, we’ll include non-gift gifts like a walk across the Brooklyn Bridge, an afternoon working a jigsaw puzzle, and an evening of telling family stories.”
