Whether it’s for Mother’s Day, her birthday, or anything in-between, figuring out what to give your mom can be difficult, especially if you’re on a budget. However, here’s a little secret—it doesn’t have to be! Homemade gifts, like this coupon book for mom, are fantastic options that shouldn’t be overlooked.
Homemade gifts are not only a great way to stay on-budget when gift giving, but also a way to create a gift that’s truly memorable. And while homemade coupons for mom (or anyone else, for that matter) may not sound like the most heartfelt gift, they’re actually pretty great … and they’re the gift that keeps on giving! 🙂
With a homemade coupon book for mom template, like the ones I’m about to share with you, you’re giving both something thoughtful (coupons for something your mom will really appreciate) and valuable (in the form of your time). And a mom coupon book printable is a gift that keeps on giving because there’s more than one coupon. Mom can redeem them when she’s truly in need of help, affection, quality time, etc.
Tip: This idea works well for any time you need a gift for your mother. (And while it might seem a tiny bit silly to use them as an adult, you really could give Mom a coupon book printable at any age.) So, use these as Christmas, Mother’s Day, or birthday coupons for mom!
You know how kids are eligible for a ton of birthday freebies? I like to think of these coupon books as like birthday freebies for adults. So definitely lean on these as birthday coupons for mom or dad! 🙂
Hugs and Kisses Coupon Book Ideas for Mom
Some of the items in this first set of coupon book ideas for mom are affection based (hugs and kisses). This makes them a great option for even young children, like preschoolers, who want to give their mom a gift but aren’t quite up to performing manual labor (household chores) just yet!
Make this mom coupon book printable even more of an experience by including extras in your book. For example, instead of just coupons, consider including:
- Completed coloring pages like:
- A completed All About My Mom printable. These are great for any occasion!
- Decorated bubble letters like the word “Mom” in bubble letters or if these are birthday coupons for mom, “Happy Birthday” bubble letters.
- Heartfelt Mother’s Day poems or quotes.

Reminder: This is for the kids. If you’re opting to give homemade coupons for mom, remember that there’s an unwritten secondary gift build into this—a smile! The whole point of these coupons is that you redeem them with a smile, no arguments or bargaining; otherwise, your mom could have just put them on chore charts for kids.
