Ladies do check out the comments for coupon ideas for holiday giving.

A few more coupon suggestions ~

Create books of coupons (you can make your own book with a stapler or fill a small photo album with coupons).  You can put a date on the coupons so that they can be redeemed over time (perhaps one a month for the following year) or you can leave them opened ended with prep time requests like “good for the meal of your choice (48 hours notice required).”  That gives you time to get the meal ingredients and rework your schedule if you need to. 

Create coupons in a theme.  Service gifts, cooking gifts, chore gifts, sexual play gifts, date night gifts, etc.

Tuck coupons into other gifts.  Put a few in a new wallet. Put a few in a book like bookmarks. Tuck a few into new socks or the pocket of a new pair of jeans.

Get creative with pictures.  Print out a picture of his favorite game (card, board, gaming or computer) and use it as a “coupon” for [however much] play time with you (great couple time doing something that he enjoys).  Pictures just make your coupons a bit more fun and colorful.

You could buy a book that you will read together and attach coupons throughout the pages.  They can be redeemed when you get to that chapter ~ double incentive!

Be sure to create some “wild card” coupons that give your husband the freedom to ask for something he wants.  If that’s a bit nervy, create multiple choice coupons where your husband has the option of picking from several choices.

Fold up and seal a number of coupons in a container.  Let your husband know that every Friday night [or whenever] he gets to pick one and redeem it.
