Datevitation: A Fun Gift Idea Review & Giveaway

I am very excited to present to you my first ever product review and giveaway! A few weeks ago I was contacted by the online store Datevitation. They were looking into expanding shipping into Canada and offered me a chance to test out their product. I was intrigued so I said yes and began the process of creating my very own Datevitation book.

Datevitation is a family business run by the husband-wife team of Alex and Olga Karpman. Through their site you can make a coupon book to give to a loved one, there are options for lovers, parents, and even kids. You can also create the books for almost any occasion that you can think of e.g. Christmas, Valentine's, Birthdays, you name it they've got it. Once you have selected who you are going to make your book for you can select the occasion and the cover.

There are lots of covers to choose from in each occasion section as well. 


I chose to make my book for Colin (of course, haha!). When I got into the book creation section I decided to use our faces, which made the end result extra hilarious and endearing. The next step in the process is to select your date coupons. There are over 500 date ideas to choose from! The entire creation process was really easy and straight forward and I had a lot of fun browsing through the coupon options. Once my book was finished I eagerly awaited it's arrival in the mail.

It took about two weeks for my book to arrive in the mail, which is pretty standard when I order things from the States. It came in this really cute "Surprise!" envelope :)

I really enjoyed the Festivus coupon option. Colin and i love Seinfeld so I thought this was one particularly entertaining. 

I also really liked the video game night.

And the cuddling one.

Now for the extra exciting part! Datevitation is offering one free coupon book to one of my readers! This would make a perfect Christmas present for that special someone. The giveaway will close on Dec. 4th and the winner will be contacted via e-mail within 24 hours. You can enter the giveaway powered by rafflecopter below. And please none of this follow and then leave after the giveaway, follow me if you plan to stick around for a while.
