1. Make Good Food Magically Appear
They say that food is the way to a man’s heart, and that’s partly true. My husband loves it when I tell him it’s time to eat, and he comes to the table and sees one of his favorite meals ready. He’s not a picky eater, so often the meal is very simple. Most of what he likes about this isn’t the food itself, but the fact that he didn’t have to decide what to have and spend the time making it. I know what food he likes and doesn’t like, so instead of asking him what he’s hungry for, I just decide what we’ll eat and start cooking!
2. Don’t Take Life Too Seriously
I think oftentimes us wives can be too practical, too productive, and putting it bluntly, be kinda boring. Now don’t get me wrong, there’s a time to be practical and productive, but when our husbands get off work might not be the time. Try to stop thinking of your to-do list. Lighten up and be fun! Laugh at his jokes, and maybe try making a few of your own. Be goofy and playful with him!
3. Find What His Love Languages Are and Love Him…a Lot!
My husband has told me countless times how much my touch means to him. Just holding his hand, giving a short shoulder massage, or a random kiss on the cheek means the world to him. Reach out and do what you know makes your husband feel loved, even if that isn’t the way that you feel loved.
4. Take Things Off His Plate
As in all those little things that need to get done, but take up time. Dishes, laundry, cleaning, grocery shopping, etc. He might not always notice you doing it, but he does notice if it doesn’t get done. If I don’t get something done, my husband is happy to pitch in and get it done. As much as possible, I try to stay on top of it so he doesn’t have to think about it in his free time. Sometimes I’ll let him help, or other times I’ll tell him not to worry about it and I’ll get it done tomorrow.
5. Make Him Coffee (or Tea)
You know how much he drinks and when he likes to drink it, so try to beat him to it and make it before he does! The thoughtfulness means a lot to him, and might make him happier than the actual cup of coffee will!
