The Grown-Up Coupon Love Book...

Raise your hand if you've ever given your significant other a homemade coupon book as a gift for an anniversary, birthday, Valentine's Day or random Tuesday. 

Did you raise your hand? I certainly did. I can count on one hand (okay, maybe two) the number of times my husband was on the receiving end of a homemade coupon book. Homemade dinners, PG-rated massages, a you-pick movie night, just to name a few, were some of the ideas that often graced the pages of those books. 

Datevitation is a company that literally reinvented the homemade coupon book. What's more? It's pretty freaking awesome and I'm filling you in on it just in time for everyone's favorite love holiday, Valentine's Day.



With its customizable options, you can create a Datevitation coupon book for any occasion including holidays, birthdays, just-because-days and more! Not to mention that with available gender neutral illustrations, you can create one for just about any couple! Male-male, male-female, etc. Books start with five coupons with the option to build as you go. 

With a database chock full of more than 200 date ideas, you can choose anything from a romantic dinner date to bowling to more... adults-only activities. 






A Datevitation custom love coupon book starts at $20 but with code "Carrots" you can gift that special someone in your life a book for $10! What a deal! 

I stuffed my husband's Christmas stocking with the super adorable date book pictured above and I would be lying if I said he wasn't just a little bit excited about it. I made sure to include dates that we would both enjoy and activities that were specific to us as a couple. This means that most of our dates include a great food and wine. 

I did manage to sneak in a bookstore date for some coffee and quiet conversation and even a cozy little at-home date night once the kidlets are in bed. We'll have to wait and see which one he redeems first!
