Give gifts of time, experience, and memories—not more stuff!
Our Printable Coupon Book is an easy-to-use template that you can print out, customize, and give to family and friends of all ages.
(Thank you Frugal Mama for the inspiration!)
- Download template above.
- Print out pages on 8.5"x11" letter size paper (in either color or in black & white)
- Cut each paper into four equal pieces (vertically). Fold each page and cut with scissors, or use a paper cutter for extra precision.
- Fill out each coupon. This is the fun part — be creative! (Need inspiration? See below for coupon ideas.)
- Assemble your coupon book: front cover, coupon pages, and back cover. Make sure all the pages are oriented correctly (all pages facing forward, except back cover facing out)
- Bind the book on the left side. You may use a stapler, or punch holes and tie with ribbon or string.
- Give your coupon book as a gift!
These are just some ideas to get you going — find countless more in our More Fun Less Stuff Gift Catalog! Remember, the best coupons are those that are personal and meaningful to the specific recipient. Think about who you're giving the coupon book to and what would make him or her smile!
