Giving your loved one a present is nice, but not every gift needs to be expensive or bought from a store. Some of the best gifts are the ones you DIY or that are full of thoughtfulness and care and real understanding of the other person. Also, when you're feeling a little tight on cash, it's especially helpful when it's the thought that counts — not the price point. Our best idea? A love coupon book.

Before you run away thinking we've got a bunch of coupons here for monogamous lap dances, hear us out. These are the coupons for things you wish you had a real veto power for — things like running to the store, calling the landlord and taking care of the kids for a whole day.

Hopefully, you're in a partnership that does its best to be 50-50, so these coupon ideas will work well for both partners in the relationship.
