Men and woman can both feel a little underappreciated at times. If you’ve been in a relationship with someone for a long time, it’s easy to fall into routines, and forget to show each other how much you care. When this happens, it can sometimes lead to stress and general feelings of frustration for both partners. The good news? You don’t have to wait for a birthday or anniversary to show someone how much they mean to you.
While parties are a great time to really make a day “all about” someone else, you can also make your loved ones feel special any day of the year too. Here are some fun ways to make sure that your husband feels adored, outside of his birthday.
1. King for a day
If you tend to watch the movies that you like and order the food that you want when you’re relaxing at home, maybe it’s time to give your man a chance to make the decisions. This could mean that he gets to spend a few uninterrupted hours playing games with his pals online. It could also mean that you have to sit quietly with a book while he watches a sport, you’re not interested in.
As aggravating as it can be to have to give up your husband’s attention for a while, remind him that you’re keen to make sure his needs are met by letting him make the calls for a day every once in a while. He’ll appreciate the effort you’re making.
2. Give him a gift
Women are always sharing stories on social media about the random gifts like those on UK Gifts that their husbands and boyfriends have bought for them after payday. Men have a habit of trying to show us how much they care by giving presents whenever they can. It might be worth repaying the favour every so often. When you have a little extra cash available, find a present that you can give him “just because”.
You don’t have to spend a fortune for this gift to make a huge difference to how your husband feels. Something small, like ordering him his favourite food could be enough.
3. Send him a love letter
Women often expect the men in their relationships to be the ones that always deliver romance. We want flowers, chocolate, and attention whenever possible. However, it’s worth remembering that your other half might like a little romance at times too. Consider sending your husband a love letter, reminding him how much you care about him, and why you love your relationships.
If you want to make things a little raunchy, you could always send the love letter over email with a few extra pictures to get his mind racing when he’s at work. Just be sure that no-one but your hubby is going to end up reading what you send.
4. Dedicate a song on the radio
Yes, this is still something that you can do for your loved one – and it still makes a real difference. If you know that your husband constantly listens to the same radio station all the time, then it might be worth making the effort to dedicate a song to him on the radio. You could pick something that’s meaningful to both of you, and something that’s just important to him.
Hearing that you’ve made the effort to call up a radio station and make the request will be enough to brighten any guy’s day. Plus, it’s an opportunity for you to show that you actually listen to your husband when he tells you about his day!
5. Explore his hobby together
You might say that you hate your husband’s love of golf or video games. But it’s difficult to stand by that if you never try it out for yourself. Show your other half that you’re willing to step out of your comfort zone for him every so often. Consider paying for a session for both of you to go and learn some extra skills together.
Alternatively, if you both already have some skills, maybe you could just go and spend a few hours together doing the thing that your husband enjoys. It might not be your number one choice of the best way to spend your weekend, but it’s an opportunity to show your husband how much you’re willing to do for him. You never know, he might repay you later with a day dedicated to you.
