I do simple things that I know he likes. I will go and buy him his favorite candy that he doesn't always get. We don't live together yet but I will do his laundry every once and a while. Once we get married I hope he continues to do his own. At times I will go buy him a new cd or something he likes that isn't over $15. You don't have to spend a lot but instead put a lot of thought behind it. A back massage is no cost but something that is affectionate and relaxing for him.
If he is anything like my guy, he will do the same for you. I got use to the flowers but the special things he does for me are my favorite.
Does he work? If so, show up on his lunch hour with a picnic.
Leave him love notes in his car, briefcase, or wallet.
Make him his favorite dinner. Give him a massage. Do some menial chore just so he won't have to (like the previous poster mentioned, about the laundry).
Treat him to a movie that he really wants to see. It's espcially nice if it's not something YOU want to see! It shows you'll take being bored to tears to make him happy.
Rent a movie, stay in, and share his favorite ice cream.
There are countless ideas out there! One thing is to pay special attention to what he says. For example, if you're out shopping and he points out something in passing that he'd like to have, go back and buy it as a birthday or Christmas gift for him. That you remembered should just thrill him!
If the stars are aligned against you, realign the stars.
Make a scrapbook of pics you took together and little notes, poems, cards, mementos from restaurants or places you visted and put it in the scrapbook. I made my husband one last Valentine's day and he loved it. I'm not Martha Stewart by any means, so for me to put something together like that and have it turn out so nicely, I was amazed. I put mementos and wrote little captions underneath. Flowers that he had given me that dried I put inside and wrote something nice. It was pretty nice....
I also like the card in the lunchbox or on his car when he's not expecting it...or, a candy on the pillow...Good luck...let us know what you do...you might have a good idea for us! haha.
yep, the above idea will work. But also, as a guy I'd like to get a surprise note (or love letter if u want to call it that) where she writes what her emotion is about me. I know a lot of girls are into "writing" and such (I may not be into writing as much tho) but i would definitely read it and it likely would give me a boost for the day...if she expressed in words just how she felt...and wrote it down for me to look at over and over.
I enjoyed it whenever my gf would do the following:
Tell me she loves me is always a number 1, but dont over use it but always do it at least a few times a week otherwise he will think you dont care.
Don't argue back at him all the time if theres a arguement about something, but give in, but not always of course it needs to be equal.
Depends on what he likes too, buy him some new clothes or a gift certificate somewhere and let him spend it.
Buy something for his car, or ask him if he would like to go to the race tracks or something and watch some races or go to a sports game, i am not into sports personally but its always fun to goto a game with the one you love.
On his day off take him somewhere, go for a walk somewhere where its just the 2 of you, and let whatever goes on from there happen.
Let him know where you are at and respect him if he asks you not to go do something thats going to affect the way he feels or thinks about you.
