Help! Can I send this in a convo?

So I was wanting to send an adorable little holiday greeting + coupon that I made to my past buyers as a nice gift of sorts (I've had customers say that they would be shopping at my store again). But I started thinking about it and I don't know if I should send them.
The Etsy Dos&Don'ts say that "You must not use Conversations to send unsolicited advertising or promotions." I wasn't planning on sending it to random people, just previous customers. Would it be wrong to send it? How would you feel as a buyer to receive something like that?
Thanks for your input on this one... I really want to send them, they're so cute!

I do not like receiving promo stuff from people I have purchased from in the past. I've been put on a few newsletters without my permission and it is annoying.
I know you want sales (we all do!) but past buyers know where to find you if they want to purchase from you again.

Yeah, I get it. But at least I was mature enough to think about it? An moral enough not to send them anyways? Eh. I spent a lot on time on that dang coupon too -___- anyways, good night all, it's 2:00am ...and I've got a presentation to give in the morning, thanks again!

Maybe you could put a note in your shop announcement along the lines of "join mailing list for instant customer appreciation coupon" or something.
I appreciate being informed of sales and discounts if they're genuine sales and just adverts. if a seller has a mailing list I usually add a comment to add me.
