Small gestures that speak of love and care, are the key to sustaining healthy relationships. While, it is easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of activity that storm our daily lives, these little acts, which may at times be as inexpensive and non-time consuming as a hug, are important in keeping a partner feeling loved and cared for.
We are constantly being told that women need to be appreciated and made to feel special, the same stands true for men. While we love flowers and chocolates, in all likelihood, he would find you renting and watching the Die Hard movie series with him to be a pretty romantic gesture. Throw in his favorite beer and chips and you have a winning combination. Let us look at some other ways by which you can impress your man.
Most men love sports, so you can't go wrong with tickets to watch his favorite team in action. Don't worry if you can't get court side tickets, just ensure to make it a fun day for him.
Be supportive, wear a t-shirt bearing the name of his favorite team, and holler when everyone else does. You can follow it up with a dinner at his favorite restaurant.
Plan a Trip
If your partner likes adventure sports, or outdoor activity, plan a day or weekend trip. You could go hiking for the day, spend the night out camping, and indulge in rock climbing too.
If you are looking for a more relaxed time, you could plan a fishing trip, or you can take him on a hot air balloon ride. You could take along a bottle of champagne or a picnic basket.
Make a Poster
Make a poster where you creatively enlist all the things you love about him, all the ways in which he lights up your life, or those that make him a great boyfriend/husband. This list must not only include the reasons why you love him, but also his little quirks, or his simple traits that impresses you.
Do little things like slipping a note into his wallet/bag before he leaves for work, or presenting him a four-leaf clover and a note that says "I got lucky when I found you."
All you need to is just be alert, and remember the little things, like the book he said he wanted to read, the cap he said he liked while you were out but didn't pick up, or even just bringing him coffee and the morning newspaper in bed.
