Friends with kids that could use a night out?

Provide free babysitting and a $15 gift card to their favorite coffee shop so they can spend quality, kid-free time together.

Have someone in your life that likes to bake?

Do you like to bake?

Spend time with friends while doing so?

Split the cost of ingredients and bake your favorite holiday cookies for all. Give in a holiday tin.

This one has the potential to become a new tradition!
