He has 4 teachers that care for him on a daily basis, so I have to keep it to something small in order to be able to do it regularly. I love popcorn and a movie, but now that movies are $12-15, a gift card to a movie theater would be too pricey for a random treat. Did you know that you can purchase promo codes to Redbox that are good for a free night's rental? A free Redbox would make my Friday!
The promo codes have to be purchased in multiples of 5. As of June 2015, a bundle of 5 DVD rental codes is $7.50, a bundle of 5 Blu-Ray rental codes is $10, and a bundle of 5 game rental codes is $15. I went with the Blu-Ray codes, since a lot of people have Blu-Ray players; the Blu-Ray codes are still good on DVDs too since those are less expensive. You can purchase Redbox codes here and they'll send the codes right to your email.
I made a little card to write the promo code on. You can download it in PDF format, if you want, and just write in the promo code in the blank.

I packaged mine up in a colorful paper bag with a bag of M&M's and some popcorn from a specialty popcorn store nearby. These mini bags of popcorn are only $1.25 and the popcorn is DELICIOUS! If you're local to DFW, I got them from Popcorn Shack.
You could substitute a bag of microwave popcorn if you prefer.
The colorful paper lunch sacks were $0.33 at Walmart, and I downloaded the printable "thank you" tags from this blog.
