What are love coupons? They’re like IOUs to give to your loved one so they can “cash them in” whenever they want. They’re great for holidays like Valentine’s Day, Mother’s and Father’s Day, or honestly just for whenever. Who needs a reason to show your partner you love them?
The basic idea here is that the person who typically isn’t into doing the thing on the coupon is the one who gives it away. The coupons are supposed to be for the recipient. So however that looks in your relationship. I know not everyone has the same roles in a family or in a relationship, so I tried to keep it gender-neutral.

1. 24 hours of uninterrupted childcare love coupons
In most families, there’s the partner who does the bulk of the childcare. In our family, we call it the “flexible” parent. Even if they work a job too, they still make all the kid appointments and do all the school things.
If you know this is not you in your family, give this coupon to the one who most likely needs a break from daily home life!
2. I’ll do your chores
A coupon that means what it says. The giver will do all of the receiver’s chores for a day or two. Maybe a week. Up to you!
3. You win the argument
Give the gift of a win to your partner during an argument. Warning: this love coupon seems like a generous and wonderful idea when you’re creating it. It won’t feel as fun when your partner cashes it in.
4. Agree to disagree
You can’t maintain a healthy relationship this way, but most of us have certain arguments that just always come up and aren’t really solvable (sometimes they’re not even important). That’s the best time to use this coupon.
5. Redbox rental of your choice
They get to pick the movie! No questions asked.
6. … Or “Your turn to choose the show”
Not all of us have the same tastes in shows as our partners. So if you usually watch thrillers because that’s what you like, why not give this one to your partner and agree to sit through “The Crown?”
7. Takeout night of your choice
Best for the partner who never gets to choose where you eat.
8. “I’ll plan date night” (or “You plan date night”).
This one has two possibilities. Either one of you always plans date night and it’s a chore, and the other just has to show up. Or you fight over who gets to plan date night because you both want to do it. If the former, give this coupon so your partner can have a break for Pete’s sake! If the latter, give in and let your partner plan a date night.
Here are some cheap date night ideas.
9. Breakfast in bed
This one is a cousin to the free childcare love coupon. Let the person who always has to get up and cook have a break!
10. Cuddling love coupons
If you both like to cuddle, this one may not be for you. But if you’re in a relationship with a cuddler and you’re not, this is a great option. Give them a certain amount of cuddle time to cash in.
11. A weekend away camping
This love coupon idea is for the one who is always turning down invitations to get outdoors with friends because the spouse wants them home more often. Send them camping!
12. Go to a sporting event
Coupon holder chooses the event!
Check out StubHub for cheap resale tickets.
13. Go to a ballet or opera event
Rinse and repeat sporting event love coupon.
14. A relaxing day at the spa
When this love coupon gets cashed in, whoever gave it will schedule a spa day for their partner. No questions asked!
15. A weekend home alone
Maybe your partner just wants to be home without the rest of y’all around. In that case, you take the kids camping or for a hotel staycation and let them have the house for a weekend.
16. Ice cream run love coupons
Give this to the partner who always has ice cream cravings!
Plus, there’s no need to pay full price when you can use ice cream coupons (the real kind that get you a discount on the sweet stuff).
17. … Or a booze run
Does your partner want something a bit harder than ice cream? You know what to do. Don’t forget the alcohol coupons.

Give the cook a night off, for the love! This includes shopping for the meal too.
