We’re not really big on Valentine’s Day around here. We don’t usually exchange fancy gifts or do anything lavish. Usually by the time February roles around we’re just recovering from the Christmas extravaganza, and buying more gifts just for the sake of having a gift to give is a little over the top.
To be honest, I’d rather use that money to do something or go somewhere with my husband instead of spending it on a gift that neither or us really needs or wants. So even though we don’t officially exchange gifts, I still like to do something thoughtful for my husband for Valentine’s Day. I typically try to make it homemade and low key while at the same time really special and something that lets him know how much I love and appreciate him.
So this year I decided to create some fun coupons for him that he can use throughout the year. Coupons are special because it’s like a constant stream of gifts all year long. And you can even completely customize them and personalize them to your heart’s content!
It seems that even though you can find so many Valentine’s Day coupons online, a lot of them are already filled out. I really want to personalize my coupons and make them completely special, so the ones that are already filled out just don’t work for me. So I decided to create my own!

I’m sharing them with you so that you, too, can make your very own personalized Valentine’s Day coupons for that special someone. They are completely blank, so you can make some not only for your special Valentine, but also kids, friends, and family members.

How to Assemble the Valentine’s Day Coupon Book
To assemble the coupon book, print it out on some nice card stock and cut out the coupons. Punch two holes in the side, and tie it together with ribbon or twine. Fill out the coupons and give them to that special someone. Isn’t that the easiest Valentine’s Day gift you’ve ever made?
Here are some ideas for filling out and personalizing your Valentine’s Day coupons for anyone and everyone on your list:
- Think of the person’s hobbies and special interests. Someone who enjoys baseball would love a coupon for a trip to the ballpark. Or maybe volunteer to help the budding gardener plant a flowerbed. Think about how you can incorporate their interests into something you can do together!
- Think of the person’s dislikes or struggles. Is there a chore the person really hates to do? Make a coupon that gives them a day off from it! Who wouldn’t appreciate that? Is there a project the person has been putting off? Maybe a coupon offering to help them out will give them the motivation they need to finish it!
- What do you enjoy doing together? Whether it’s going to the movies, eating at a favorite restaurant, or hiking at a local park, the recipient is sure to appreciate a coupon that includes a favorite activity with you!
- What has this person been asking you to do? Is there a place the recipient has been wanting to visit but you’ve been putting it off? Is there an activity they really want to do but you just can’t find the time? Including something like that in a coupon lets your special someone know you’ve been listening and their wishes are important to you!
- Surprise them! Give a coupon for something completely out of the ordinary that they would never expect! (But be sure it’s something you’re actually willing to follow through with!)

I love to give coupons to my husband instead of always buying gifts because he typically has already bought himself what he wants:) So, I usually have to give him a coupon for something special. These are super cute!
Thanks, Crystal! My husband does the same thing, which makes it so difficult to buy him gifts sometimes! I am a big fan of the coupon book for a cute, easy gift!
I like the one about the breakfast in bed. It’s been years since I had that! So if you don’t have kids, enjoy it now, because that was the last time I got to have breakfast in bed!
Lol it is definitely a rarity, that’s for sure! We usually save it only for very special occasions!

I love coupons, and saving them for when you really want to use them! I should make some up for my kids, they are older, but it would be fun for them to give me a coupon to go out with them for coffee or something little, it doesn’t have to be big, but it would make both of us feel wanted and loved! That is so awesome. Pinned and shared, I bet there a lot of people that would love to use these, they are very well done! Thanks!
Thanks so much, Nikki! You are so right, these would be great even for older kids. The great part about coupons is you can use them for something like going out for dinner or coffee, so it’s like giving a gift but it’s not really a material gift, just the gift of quality time, which is the best kind of time IMO! Thanks so much for sharing!
Such a great idea! Thank you for the free printable. Do you have a coupon template for any other occasions? Birthdays would be perfect!
