IOU a wonderful gift



There’s no doubt we are heading for lean economic times, which might also mean we have to be a little creative about the gifts we give. Nothing fits the fill better than IOU Vouchers for kids from Colloco.

The pack of 50 vouchers includes things like ‘bake a cake’, ‘midnight feast’ and my favourite, ‘stay in your pyjamas all day’. It also has three blank vouchers that can be personalised (by you, or them!).

The charm of the vouchers is that most don’t require the outlay of big bucks to redeem them, for example the inexpensive but enjoyable, ‘a film at home with popcorn’. They only require a bit of time, such as ‘an extra story at bedtime’ or relaxing of the ordinary house rules, for example ‘stay up late’.

You can dole out the vouchers slowly as a reward, split them up for nieces and nephews or alternatively, just give one lovely, lucky kid the whole lot. Knowing my kids, they would want to redeem them all in one exhausting weekend….but it would certainly be a memorable one!

The vouchers come packaged in a clear plastic case and at £6.50 plus postage, I think they’re a steal.

Colloco ships to Australia by arrangement.
