1. Show him that you love him by making his favorite dish
Incorporating your partner’s favorite food or dessert into your weekly menu is a great way to show him that you love him because he knows what he likes. It also shows that you want to make him happy, especially if his favorite food isn’t something you would normally do.
2. Create a playlist with him in mind
Couples often have songs that remind them of their partner, so creating a playlist of songs that makes you think of him is a really fun way to show that you love him. This also works great in a long-distance relationship, as you can send him to him daily to let him know that you are thinking of him. Introducing her to new bands and songs that you can enjoy together is always a great way to bond.
3. Surprise him with a “throwback” date
Do you remember the first date your husband took you? Plan the exact same date! Doing so is a creative way to show him that you love him because it will spark the emotion that the two of you felt at the beginning of your relationship. They could also recreate the date the two of you said “I love you” for the first time or even the date you took them when you asked them to be your wife.
4. Take him on a surprise adventure
Plan an adventure for the two of you and don’t give him any details! This doesn’t have to be an elaborate plan, either. Pick a place that the two of you can easily drive to for a long weekend and only give you hints about what to pack, rather than where you are going or what you are going to do when you get there. Your adventure can have many fun activities, or you can choose a place where the two of you can relax and spend time together as husband and wife.
5. Get him to do something he always wanted to do but hasn’t done
A creative way to show your man that you love him is to help him mark items off his wish list. Maybe you’ve talked about skydiving or seeing the Grand Canyon. You can be the one to help him do those things! Experiencing those things together will bring you closer together and show him that you are willing to try new things with him.
6. Show him that you love him by leaving a love note somewhere where he will find it
By writing a short but sweet love note and leaving it somewhere, you will find it, a creative way for a wife to show her husband how much she loves and appreciates him. It doesn’t need to be super cheesy – a simple “have a nice day at work, I love you” will do. Hide it in your briefcase so you can find it at work or stick it on your bathroom mirror so you can see it when you brush your teeth.
7. Give him a deck of cards that lists all the reasons why you love him
Anyone who has read Pinterest for gift ideas has probably seen the deck of cards turned into a book filled with 52 reasons why you love it and it is definitely a fun and creative gift to give your significant other. Simply poke holes in the top corner of the deck of cards and attach them with a binding ring or even thread and use a Sharpie to write down 52 Reasons You Love Your Partner.
8. Get creative with kisses
Another great Pinterest gift to show your love is to fill a jar with Hershey’s kisses and write a note that says “kisses for when I’m not around” somewhere on the jar. It’s a silly and fun way to make your guy smile and every time he gets into the jar, he’ll think of you.
9. Plan a weekend trip for him and his friends
Being safe in your relationship means that you can express your love for each other by not spending time together. Set up a weekend trip for him and some friends to go see a band they love or get him tickets to visit his friend who lives in a different city. Planning a weekend for him shows that you not only love him but that you trust him.
10. Write him a love letter
Expand your love note with a complete love letter. Receiving a handwritten letter from you will show that you are willing to go the extra mile in your relationship so that he knows that you care about him. Write about the things you love about him, are your favorite memory of him, or even how you appreciate the things he does for you.
11. Take a task from your to-do list
We all tend to have a to-do list for our loved ones to complete, whether it’s mowing the lawn or cleaning the garage. Show your partner that you love them by completing a task on their list. It doesn’t have to be one of the biggest projects, but it will definitely make your life a little easier and give you time to do something you love.
12. Surprise him with something he has always wanted but not bought
If there’s something you’ve talked about wanting for a long time, but haven’t actually bought for yourself because it’s too expensive or impractical, consider buying it and wowing him with it. Sometimes it can be difficult to justify spending money on something like an expensive new watch when the old one works well, but surprising him with it will only make him appreciate it even more.
13. Do something he loves
In any relationship, you can expect that there will be things that both of you don’t like to do, which is why you often go your separate ways when one of you wants to do them. Maybe you like to play golf, but you’re not the sporty type. Surprise him by scheduling a tee time for the two of you. You will appreciate the effort you have put in and the interest you are taking in something that you like to do. Just make sure it’s a good sport and not complaining all the time!
14. Pamper him
When your partner is stressed, you can show your love by pampering him. Play soft music, turn off the lights, and draw him a hot bath. Soaking in the bathtub for a while will relax you and relieve some of the stress you’ve been feeling. Once he gets out of the tub, offer to give him a massage.
15. Be punny
In a long-distance relationship? Send him a care package filled with different types of candy and attach sticky notes with a cheesy pun. Do you need some inspiration? Buy a bag of gummy bears and write: “life would be unbearable without you.” If you’re more of a chocolate lover, buy a Reese’s and write, “I can’t REESE-ist.” Be creative!
16. Wear her favorite dress or style your hair the way she loves it on your next date
If the two of you are going on a date, consider wearing a dress or outfit that you know you love. Complete the look by styling your hair the way he says he likes it. This shows that you listen when they compliment you.
17. Plan a treasure hunt
Is an anniversary coming up? Plan a treasure hunt! It’s a fun way to visit memory lane while celebrating new milestones. Create clues that take you back to places and times from your dating journey, like where you had your first kiss or where you said you loved him for the first time. Find him at the prize spot using a bow, because you are his grand prize!
18. Get creative and make an “I love you because…” photo frame
This is an incredibly easy thing to do and you can be as creative as you like. Buy a nice photo frame, put scrapbook paper inside with the phrase “I love you because” written on it. When you put the frame back together, you can use it as a whiteboard and write down new reasons every day. If you’re feeling more creative, you can even decorate the frame with flowers or souvenirs that he has given you.
19. Keep a picture of the two of you next to your bed
Simple, but effective, especially when you are in a long-distance relationship. Keeping your favorite photo of the two of you on your nightstand shows you love it because you will see it every night before bed and every morning when you wake up. Go one step further and let her choose her favorite photo of the two of you.
20. Give him a token of your affection
Another creative way for a wife to show her husband how much she loves him is to create displays of affection for him. Find some coins or round objects that you can keep in a drawstring bag. On each of the cards, write some kind of personal favor on them, such as giving her a back rub or making dinner. You can choose which one you want to use and you will appreciate the effort you put in.
21. Give it your undivided attention
How many times have you gone out somewhere and seen a couple looking at their phones instead of talking to each other? Close off distractions and show your boyfriend that you love him by focusing on him. Really listen to what he is saying to you and both of you will end up feeling connected and satisfied.
22. Ask him for advice
Asking your partner for advice shows that their opinion is important to you. Even if you are not sure that he will know what to do, ask him what he thinks anyway. He will appreciate that you want to solve the problem with him and if he is the one who ends up helping you solve it, he will feel like your hero.
23. Show him that you love him with a compliment
Sometimes we can take our partners for granted and not tell them when we like something about them. Make an effort to compliment your man from time to time. If you like the way the shirt he’s wearing brings out the blue in his eyes, let him know. He’ll feel special, and as a bonus, he’ll probably make an effort to congratulate you more often.
24. just say it
The best way to tell your partner that you love them is to say it! This is especially effective if you are in a long-distance relationship when it is more difficult to show how much you love him without saying it. If the two of you aren’t the type to talk about your feelings a lot, and as a result you don’t say those three words daily, just saying it will surprise you.
It doesn’t matter how you do it as long as you mean it
As long as you put the time and effort into your relationship, your partner will never have to wonder if you love him or not. Have fun because there are always new and creative ways to show your love.
