A love coupon book is great at inspiring a little romance and special times for couples. It’s also the perfect way to decide what to do or where to go for a special occasion.
I’ve compiled this list of love coupon book ideas to help you put together your perfect set of love coupons.
Personalized Valentine’s Day coupons are an especially great way to show your spouse how much you care and that you pay attention to their needs. The coupons can be edited so that you can make some that are specific to your loved one. Maybe a day of golf (guilt-free) is something they would really appreciate.
If you aren’t looking for a Valentine’s Day gift, these would also be great as a birthday gift or anniversary gift for your significant other. Your SO would probably love getting this romantic gift idea on Mother’s Day or Father’s Day too. You can pick the perfect combination for your book of love coupons to match their love language.

Many love coupons can be especially intimate or private, but I’ll keep the ideas in this post PG rated because I know a lot of kids end up on my pages.
And some of these ideas may not be able to be done right away, but the beauty of coupons is that they’re redeemable anytime. (Feel free to add your own expiration date to the editable coupons if you like that idea.)
For those of you who are spontaneous, spur-of-the-moment, adventure lovers there are a few activities that can be done without any planning at all. But for those of you who may have spouses like me, you may want to give ’em a little warning that you’d like to redeem a coupon. For us planner types it can be really helpful to agree on a particular day so that you can have time to plan the event.
For example, Sunday night you could suggest that your SO redeem a coupon sometime that week. A “heads-up” is a way to consider and honor your spouse even if you think it’s odd. My husband and I have been married 20 years and my husband still thinks I’m a little insane about planning. But he tries to accommodate my inclination to plan ahead.
All of these romantic couple ideas can easily be turned into meaningful personalized coupons.
Valentine’s Day Love Coupon Book Templates
Just choose one of my Valentine’s day templates and write in your own coupons to personalize your DIY coupon book. Or you can choose a generic template to celebrate your own special event. Both are available in the shop.
