Here are 10 surprising but genuine ways to show him that you love him. These are simple ideas that you can take cues from and add the extra element of romance and passion in your relationship.
1. Tell him you are proud of him
There is nothing a man wants to hear more than ‘how much you are proud of him.’ Tell him how you feel blessed to have him and how he makes you a proud wife with his loyalty, true love and affection for you. Do not simply take words from quotes. He will be quick to find out. Tell him the real reasons you are proud of him.
2. Hear him out patiently
Who doesn’t want to be patiently heard? In today’s times of chaos and distractions, the best way to show your affection and care to somebody is by lending them a patient ear. Hear him out without cutting him in between or without sounding distracted. Men are not very good at expressing and they further hold their expression when they find the listener uninterested. So go ahead and hear him at length.
3. Thank him for being there for you
We all want our gestures and efforts to be not only acknowledged but also appreciated. Saying a warm and heartfelt ‘thank you’ is the best way to tell your partner that you truly appreciate and applaud the little things he does for you. You will have no idea how far a small ‘thank you’ can go unless you say it!
4. Prepare an elaborate meal for him
Just like a genuine ‘thank you’ or a ‘sorry’, a good meal can go a long way in making him feel pampered and well treated. If he loves food, then you can try out different recipes or create a fusion. If he is a fussy eater, then stick to his favorites. Read how one woman made her husband’s birthday extra special by creating a one-day dhaaba.
5. Attach a romantic note in his wallet or his lunch box
This may sound a little cheesy but it is the perfect way to surprise him in the sweetest way possible. I have tried it and I can tell you that it works wonders.
6. Plan for a passionate night
Believe me, nothing can excite him more than this. A good way to surprise him is to text him a little in advance that you are waiting for him for the night and trust me, he will ditch all his meetings and will be right there. Send your kids to bed a little early and light an aromatic candle. All set for the mood!
7. Give him a head massage
This surely works because of two reasons. One, a good head massage is highly relaxing and soothing. It releases the tensions and helps in relieving stress. Two, a man mostly reads a head massage as a means to take him to the way no. 6 above.
8. Express it in his love language
I sincerely believe in the concept of love languages that was developed by Gary Chapman. Different people have different love languages. Discover his love language and make it your way of communication. If he loves acts of service, do something for him. If his love language is words of affirmation, then shower compliments upon him. Express your love in his language and he will surely understand.
9. Say ‘I love you’ to him in different words
Instead of saying ‘I love you’, you can say million other things that mean the same. You can say ‘you are the best thing to happen to me’ or ‘you are my reason to live’ etc. Take help from here and here.
10. Send him some flowers
Yes, men love flowers too! Get the flowers delivered to him in his office or wake him up with a rose in the morning. Valentine’s day is approaching and here are the best valentine day gifts for husband. Take help from these and have a grand day.
