  • Once February rolls in, the pressure is on for couples to find the perfect way to profess their love for their partner. Valentine’s Day has turned into a day when showering partners with "acts of love" is really just a code for "buy them gifts."

    We know that showing your significant other they matter doesn’t have to mean buying them material things. In fact, if you ask wives what they really want, the top answer isn’t something money can buy (clue: it starts with the letter ‘S,’ but it's not sex LOL). Sometimes all you need to do to make her happy and feel loved is to take a little load off her shoulders and spend some time together.

    If you’re looking for ideas, we have the best one: love coupons! These are sweet and romantic gestures or experiences that your partner can redeem at their leisure. Yes, some of them include things that you’ll need to shell out money for, but the beauty is you can spread the vouchers throughout the year, so you can have something to look forward to even after Valentine's Day. And it doesn’t apply to just the wives — husbands can receive these, too!
