We all have them – the “impossible to buy for” people on your holiday list. For me it’s my brother-in-law’s family; they’re wonderful people but they never seem to need or want anything – and I’m sure they say the same thing about us! We’re all fortunate enough to have more than enough ‘stuff’ but that doesn’t mean that we don’t want to get them something to open on Christmas Day. My solution? Give an experience instead of an item!
A great experience, especially for parents who may not make enough time for date nights, is a gift to see a movie in the theatre! The Empire Theatres’ 2011 Gift Card Holiday Program is running right now: buy $30 in Empire Theatres’ Gift Cards you will receive $30 in Empire Theatres Coupons! You can purchase the gift cards at your local Empire Theatre until December 24th, or you can order online until December 18th.
The Coupon Bundle includes coupons for everything from free drinks to reduced admission prices that are valid for different times from January through April, which makes it excellent for students, parents who need a kick to get out every now and then….or a nice gift for yourself as a reward for all of your holiday shopping! You can even buy a gift tin for $1.00 with the net proceeds going to Kids Help Phone. My favourite part is that the gift tins can be purchased separately (even online!) so you can do a good deed and avoid wrapping all at the same time.
