Technology – It Can Also Be Used For Fun

www.janeanesworld.com datevitation lovecouponbook

It is terrific to sit back and use your technology to have fun sometimes. In my professional life I wear many hats – advisor, counselor, writer, publisher. In all of those hats, while doing all of those jobs I use technology. I have a laptop computer, a tablet pc, a smartphone, and an e-reader just to name a few. At the same time in my personal life, I am a wife, mother and a friend. Technology is helpful to me in those areas as well. Recently I discovered a company called Datevitation that allows me to use my technology to create a love coupon book to make people around me really happy.

Datevitation is this amazing website that allows you to give the people around you amazing dates that are special to them. Datevitation is the web’s first online platform to create a custom love coupon book. Unlike the pre-packaged love coupon books on the market, you pick the dates and can customize the text to your liking. Once you are done customizing the text in your book, Datevitation will print it out and ship it to you. The Datevitation library contains over 500 date ideas ranging from skydiving to stargazing to steamy adult-only activities. They also have over 100 book cover options to suit any occasion.

In addition to being the perfect romantic gift for your sweetie, Datevitation now has “boy” and “girl” characters with over 200 new activity illustrations specifically for kids and parents. There’s also an exciting feature that allows you to add photos of your own faces to the illustrations!

One of the things that really impressed me was the fact that the love coupon book could be for anyone and any occasion. You can give them to friends, family members even co-workers because there were so many activity options to choose from when creating your love coupon book. The other thing that was really impressive was the fact that we could add our own photos to the characters in the book. It made the whole experience more personal and a lot more special. When my husband Darren receives the book I created for him and sees the photos of he and I doing the events, he will know the gift was made just for him.

Books normally start at just $25 so it makes for a thoughtful yet economical gift. But as a special treat for my followers, you can use the code ‘JANEANE10’ for $10 off your purchase plus free shipping (total value of $13.50) That means you can get your loved one a one-of-a-kind gift for Christmas starting at just $15! The order cut-off date for guaranteed delivery by Christmas is December 13 so make sure to get your order in before then!

I made a coupon book. It took almost no time and was a lot of fun to do. There were so many types of activities to choose from and so many choices within each category it was easy to find just the right activities for my book. I selected:

 

Big screen movie night

I really like the idea of these books so my friends and family should not be surprised if they get a coupon book from me for various occasions throughout the year. Datevitation is a family business run by the husband-wife team of Alex and Olga Karpman. You can get to know them on the Datevitation blog, where they offer video guides to date ideas and romantic gestures. You can even watch Alex propose to Olga in a video they posted on Youtube as a Save The Date, and now has over 1.5 million views (you can view the video here)!

In conclusion, it is terrific to sit back and use your technology to have fun sometimes. So, the question for you this terrific day is, what is the most fun you have had with your technology?
