Okay, I know what you are thinking. Love Coupons. Come on. How corny can you get ?! And I do not blame you at all since a few months back even I was on the same boat as you. However, these “coupons” do come in real handy when you are looking desperately for a moment just to press refresh and beat the stress, when you are nowhere close to a solution but life needs to go on, when you want some silliness in your life to share a chuckle with your significant other, when you both have reached wit’s end and almost on the verge of strangling each other! There, got your attention didn’t I 🙂
If you thought these kind of coupons are only for the mushy lovey-dovey honeymooning couples, its time to think again! You can, of course have the gooey clichéd-romantic ones also and here I am going to list out the coupons in no specific order which can be really a lifesaver for any kind of couple. Make them or buy them or email them (after all you can save some trees!), that is up to you but what really matters, is the content and I really urge you to try them out.
1.“Good for Ending an Argument, No Questions Asked, Thrown in With One Looong Hug!”
Because now and then you are quite nowhere near a resolution and life must go on. When you are really just too weary to continue the “discussion” but do not want to disappoint your partner, redeem this coupon and it works wonders! You find the anger and resentment and all the built-up negative emotions getting dissolved in the warm tight hug of your sweetheart ❤
2.“Good for a No-Technology Show for a Whole Day”
Because its good to disconnect to connect with your love. Even if your Facebook buzzes with notifications galore or you are dying to check in at Foursquare! It is just ONE day and you are spending quality time together, and getting a chance to really listen to them and have a heart-to-heart. That’s never a bad thing! Your mobiles/ipads/laptops can surely rest for a day atleast 🙂
3.“Good for Some Cuddlebunny Spells”
Because cuddling sometimes says more than words can and sometimes that is all you really need to feel better. But did you know that it also boosts your immunity, reduces stress and lowers the risk of heart disease as well? What more reasons do you need for this one? ❤
4.“Good for a Break from Cooking AND Cleaning for a Day”
Because, really? You are looking for a reason to use this one? Irrespective of the gender (who am I kidding, this one is indeed a showstopper for the women rather than men) this is one of the musts in your coupons. So do I use this? Yes of course!!! You can check my About Me to get a better idea of my cooking “skills” .*grinning sheepishly*
5.“Good for One Day Full Gaming/TV Remote Control”
Because, the men in our life need to be happy as well 😉 And of course, you get some additional brownie points for being the perfect wife 😀 This was quite a favorite in my home, though nowadays the poor hubby is toiling away with his graduate studies and has no time to indulge in either of this
6.“Good for Some Serious Listening Time”
Because listening is indeed an art, and sometimes when you are shouting your lungs out, there could be chances that your significant other is not even paying attention to what language you are speaking! But don’t worry thou shalt use thy coupon now! Redeem the coupon, and slow down the argument and get yourself some undivided attention without any further ado 😎
7.“Good for Any Three Romantic Wishes”
Because you and your beloved need to seek a little lovin’ and indulgence from time to time. When you take each other for granted, when the schedules just would not allow it, when you find monotony wearing you down, redeem the coupon and surprise yourself and your love by jazzing up your already cherished relationship. ❤
8.“Good for Forgiving a Repeated Mistake”
Because it is very inevitable that you both will push each other to the maximum limits quite often. And to avoid another endless argument this coupon comes in very handy. But the frequency of the redemption of this coupon can be quite tricky sometimes 😉
9.“Good for a Bubble Bath Together”
Because the couple who soaks together stays together 😀 On a more serious note, engulfed by warm cascading water and fascinating scents and the thing you crave for the most, some awesome quality “We-Time”, you can create a private escape right in your own home! It could be the perfect place to touch on how your day went, discuss the dreams you had the previous night or your weekend plans. And apart from enjoying the intimacy and the exotic fragrances, who knows one thing might lead to another 😉 But the bottom line is it’s a great time to bond and hang out, especially for those couples who have stringent schedules!
10.“Good for a Coupon Do-Over”
Because sometimes you cannot get enough of one coupon and would like to redeem it again 😀 However ,you can have restrictions on this one. For eg. to dismiss a mistake repeated quite often would be tough but one more no-technology show or no cooking coupon, Yes Pleaase!
So if you ask me how I got into this coupon thing, it all started with our card games!
We play some card game almost every day and to make it more interesting my man suggested to find incentives for the winner. We started with small things like watching the winner’s favorite movie or going out to their choice of favorite restaurant or no mobiles while eating etc. But once we discovered how it was helping to add that extra spark to our relationship and was giving us many sweet and worthwhile memories, we decided to follow the incentives without the card games as well and thus the coupons were born 🙂

The point to remember about the coupon business is that, they should be tailored for whatever is pleasing to your sweetheart. If the wifey is a person who loves cooking and freaks about cleanliness (think Monica in FRIENDS :D), you can remove the Cook and Clean coupon and add a shopping session maybe. And when you know the hubby is eagerly following up on some sports scores in the internet, it does not make sense to use the No-Technology coupon on that day either. The whole idea is to bring in moments of love and pure giving in the relationship, combined with some practical yet effective and inspiring coupons to create some incredible memories. ❤
So tell me what do you all think? I would looove to know your thoughts on this one 🙂 What coupons would you add to this list? 🙂
