Love Coupons..with a twist!

Okay, I know what you're thinking. Love coupons? C'mon, Cher! But hear, actually...read me out...

Although it may seem a little corny, it's super cost-effective and you KNOW your spouse is going to want what's on the coupon. You just can't beat that.

I've done a few sets of love coupons over my 3 1/2 years being married...and I thought I'd share some twists on love couponing.
  • Don't give the coupons all at once--Hide one or two each day in fun places (sock drawer, refridgerator, on their pillow, etc. (They'll have something to look forward to each day).
  • Give them one blank coupon which they can fill in themselves...(I know, that's a little scary...but do it anyway! They'll love it!)
  • Allow them to trade in 2 or 3 coupons for something else of their choice (but they can only do that once!)
  • No time to print or make coupons? Email them one "coupon" each day to redeem when they get home.
  • Make a little book out of it to give as a gift:
    - Hole-punch the stack of coupons and tie together with ribbon
    - On a blank coupon page, write the reasons why you love and appreciate them and how much they deserve these love coupons
Here are 4 sets of coupons that I made for you. Take your pick or mix-and-match! There are 6 coupons on a PDF sheet, so just download, print, and write in what the coupon is worth!

Click description below each to download that set:

Manly-Man Camouflage

Basic Blue & Brown

Blue Flower

Vintage Floral

Of, course I couldn't leave you without a million (well, at least a dozen or two) ideas to make this a little easier.. So, here you go!

Have you done these in the past? If so, I'm sure you have other great ideas...leave a comment and enlighten me...and everyone else who reads this post!

I just got married in January and I did this for my husband for Valentines day. He Loved it... what I did was make several coupons for each month then tied them together with ribbon in some felt and made a cute book. My coupons had things like "A free I'm sorry" or " A Free hug" "A free Rice Pudding"( he loves it and I hate it so when he wants it he uses his little coupon. The Free hugs have made things really easy for the both of us when he goofs up and I get mad. He simply hands me the coupon, I know he really is sorry so we make-up and move on. They have been a life-saver for the both of us.

I love the idea of doing for each month, Jodi--Thank you! I didn't even consider a "free I'm sorry!" Thanks for your comment!

I just found your blog through my cousin and it's incredible! Thanks for all the awesome ideas! After 11 years, we need to spice things up a bit! Thanks for the help!

I've used this a couple of times before. Especially when I don't have money for a present for him at that time. There are so many ideas for this. Thanks for sharing, especially the free 'I'm sorry', might help me now...

I love this blog and have to admit I'm now a secret follower. For this coupon idea, I took an offer on VISTAPRINT.com for business cards and just filled in the fields to make it look like a professional coupon. There is a space for each thing my husband is awarded and it's nice to always have a fancy card on hand.

SO I made my boyfriend coupons for our second anniversary. One of them was "1 golden coupon to anything you want". Six years later he takes me to the channel islands and proposes to me with that coupon and a shiny ring!!! true story!!! I could not believe he kept it because he never redeemed any of the others! :)
