We all know this Friday is Black Friday. I suspect some of you actually relish getting out of bed at 5 a.m. to stand in lines and fend off hostile elbows. For those who prefer a good night’s sleep, I’ve got a better idea.
Go online and order gift certificates from the comfort of home. Visit the Michigan Lake to Lake B&B Association’s gift certificate store. Purchase certificates good toward a luxury stay in any one of 110 Michigan B&Bs in a variety of dollar amounts from $50 to $500. Personalize them to Grandma, to Mom and Dad, to a co-worker or your boss. Say “Merry Christmas” and say it “with love.” It beats socks six ways for Sunday!
These marvelous gifts can be used the same as cash and have a five-year life before expiring on Christmas Day, 2017. There are no black-out dates, meaning they can be used even over a Fourth of July weekend with advance reservations!
If you prefer embracing Small Business Saturday, November 24, buy your B&B gift certificates online on November 24 to show your support for the very smallest of lodging businesses. Or join Cyber Monday shoppers and place your order on November 26.
Top off your wonderfully-relaxing online shopping experience by doing something for YOU: enter Lake to Lake’s newest contest by visiting our Facebook page. Take a shortcut by clicking here to enter to win a $100 gift certificate toward a B&B get away. All you have to do is Like our Facebook page (and what’s not to Like about a page dedicated to Michigan tourism and the B&B experience?) and you’ll be eligible to sign up to win. If you do win, you can choose whether to “gift” the certificate or keep it for yourself. After all: you deserve some pampering too.
Gift certificates are available year around for all occasions. Certificate give-away contests are held frequently. Watch for announcement of our December event.
Happy Thanksgiving Holiday to all.
