When choosing a gift for my spouse I always try to give my spouse something that is: #1 personal and #2 something he can enjoy for several days – not just on his special day! These beautifully designed love coupons are the perfect combination of these two elements! Together with Kristin Clove at C Dot Love we created these gorgeous love coupon pockets. I wanted to not only be able to place the love coupons in the pockets, but also be able to insert something special to go along with it {gift card or tickets}. I have never seen love coupons like that before and Kristin totally nailed the design! Amazing!

Before gifting my coupon book, I added some crafter’s twine. It helped keep everything together and presentable! I am so excited for my hubby to slide out each coupon and see his surprises!

  1. Just so you know, the link at the end for the actual coupons gives you the envelopes again. The links in the material section are correct.

    I can’t wait to use this super cute idea for the hubs!! I’m bad at thinking of gifts and he LOVES everything I get/do from you guys!

  2. I just wanted to know what kind of paper you used to print these. Would regular printer paper work, or do you recommend using a thicker paper? I’ve always loved this idea and your designs are absolutely adorable. I’m definitely using these this year!

  3. What font are you using, i would like to find the same font to use on the custom coupons

    They are absolutely awesome! My valentines gift for my lady friend 🙂

  4. I love to see other peoples DIY! I find them cute and pretty and charming. But I never make anything – either seems to complicated, or I do not have the right materials and don not want to invest into something I am not sure about, etc.

    But the bright day has come – I actually made these for my boyfriend as his Valentines surprise! They turned out just as good as it is shown in the pictures. Thank you for making this available to everyone! 🙂


  5. Wow, these are just great!! Thank you so much for having these to print off. I have made a booklet for my husband. Have had a hard time last few months and no money, and these will be just the perfect gift for him. I’m really grateful. Even better than expensive gifts as they have more meaning.

  6. Kristin,

    The love coupons are such a great idea. Thank you making them free. My boyfriend and I are in a long distance relationships because I’m doing a year of volunteer service. The convenience and affordability allow me to show him how much I car for him. Thank you!!!

    1. Thank you for sharing your experience! We are thrilled that these love coupons went to good use! Enjoy and best of luck with the long distance thing!

  7. Kristin,

    The love coupons are an amazing idea. Thank you for making them. But I just have a probloem, I am not creative, can you give me more options of small items to put into the pockets ?


    1. Sophia – So glad that you enjoyed this! For mine, I chose to put gift cards for the activity or tickets to a particular show! If you can’t fit a particular item in there you could insert a paper with a clue to where the item might be found! That could be so much fun! Enjoy!

    1. Lisa –
      I am sorry that this isn’t working for you! I would suggest trying in a different internet browser and if that still doesn’t work you can email me: sarina{at} and I will email you the printables in an attachment!

  8. these are great.

    Love coupons are actually a good way to strengthen the communication between you and your spouse. And it helps with meeting your needs. 😉

    1. Good question! You have several options: You could use photoshop (or a similar program – I use Pixelmator), you could create your personalization on a word document and move it around until it prints directly onto pre-printed blank coupons, or the easiest method is to contact the designer with your request! Kristin Clove at C Dot Love is amazing and I am sure she would love to create your design.

    1. Can you give me more information? The link for the downloads (there are 2) is located at the very bottom of the post. It is a large pink bar that says, “Click to Download Our . . . ” From there it should open to another tab and the printables appear. You should then be able to download to your computer and print. Can you provide more details where it is not working?

  9. These are adorable! I was going to have these ready for Valentine’s Day and that flopped – so I am making them a random gift for my man.

    Just one question… Do you need to tape/staple the pockets shut? Will they stay shut on their own?

  10. My coupons are so much smaller than the actual envelopes. Is that how they’re supposed to be? The picture makes it look like they’re almost the same size and the tab sticks out past the envelope.

    1. That is so odd you are experiencing that! You are correct – the coupons are designed to fit perfectly in the envelope pockets with the tab sticking out. I personally made the ones in the picture and the sizing worked just right. One thought is – sometimes when I print directly from my browser (Chrome, firefox etc) the print comes out skewed. Make sure you download the file to your computer and print from there. That is all I can think of that might be a factor! Sorry I wasn’t more help!

  11. Thank you for making and sharing these free coupons. Nice little fun personal gift for anniversary. My partner and I are going to enjoy these 🙂 thank you!
