Happy Monday, Friends! Today I have a printable for you that I think you will enjoy: Love Coupons! What are love coupons, you ask? Love coupons can be redeemed for any number of great intangible gifts, and basically anything goes!
When I was in third grade, one of my favorite books was from the Amber Brown series: Amber Brown Goes Fourth. I distinctly remember my eight-year-old self being blown away by the sheer genius of Amber Brown’s birthday gift to her mother: Five “Amberino Certificates” that entitled the beholder to 5 wishes, with just one caveat:
“Just remember, these have to be wishes that I can actually do…not stuff like move the Empire State Building or eat spinach or find the cure for dandruff (not that you have it or anything).”
I copied the idea with my dad for father’s day that year, except the ever-original child I was called them “Gaberino Tickets.” I didn’t think to put an expiration date on them, however, so my dad has hung on to them for years, biding his time for the perfect moment to redeem them. He still has them!
These printable love coupons are a little more sophisticated than their 1998 counterparts, and they’ve been expanded to include a space for terms and conditions (my husband likes to hoard coupons like these, so an expiration date is sometimes necessary). They come in 6 colors: pink, green, blue, pink & green, red (for Valentine’s Day or romantically-themed coupons) and black (for easy black and white printing).
These coupons aren’t holiday-specific; instead, they’re general enough to be given any time the giving mood strikes! For example, on my birthday I came home to a stack of love coupons that my husband had secretly liberated from my computer, printed, and filled out: 25 coupons for my 25th birthday!
In case you’re looking for some great coupon ideas, here are a few to get your creative juices flowing:
- One no-questions-asked “you’re right” (a personal favorite)
- One load of dishes/laundry
- One breakfast/lunch/dinner restaurant pick of your choice!
- One no-questions-asked purchase I will agree to (up to $X value)
- One Netflix marathon of the show of your choice (up to X hours)
You get the idea :)
