30 Ways to Make Your Husband's Day

Alisa Grace - February 2, 2016

Doing small things everyday can help you build a more intimate and trusting relationship with your spouse. Here are 30 ideas on how you can appreciate your husband and keep the romance alive.

  1. Wake him up in the morning with coffee fixed the way he likes it and a kiss good morning.
  2. Ask him, “How can I help you today?” And then do it!
  3. Send him out the door with a five-second kiss and a smile. Tell him, “Have fun slaying the dragons! That tells him he’s your knight in shining armor.
  4. Pay him a genuine compliment: something you admire, value or appreciate about him.
  5. Tell him how handsome he looks before he goes somewhere.
  6. Pray a blessing over him at the start of your day.
  7. Express appreciation for ordinary and routine tasks he does.
  8. Send him a sexy text message while he’s at work.
  9. Do one of his chores he hates to do.
  10. Offer to help him with a home project he’s working on.
  11. When he comes home (or if you get home after him), stop what you’re doing, greet him with a smile and a five-second kiss. Say, “I’m so glad you’re home!  I missed you!”
  12. Have his favorite snack waiting for him when he comes home.
  13. Say “Please” and “Thank you” often.
  14. Brag on him (where he can hear you) to your kids and encourage them to “marry someone just like your Dad” or to “be a husband/father just like your Dad.”
  15. Offer to run an errand for him.
  16.  When he asks you how you are doing, wink at him and say, “Better now that you’re here!”
  17. Make his favorite dinner.
  18. Watch his favorite sporting event with him, happily. 
  19. Ask how his day went. Include questions about specific appointments or important meetings/events he had.
  20. Defer to his preference, happily: Does he like the chicken leg? Make sure he gets both! What TV show/movie would he like to watch?
  21. Tell him, “I’m so glad I’m married to you and not to anyone else.”
  22. Listen without interrupting.
  23. Follow up that earlier sexy text message with a romantic, intimate night.
  24. Look him in the eye and tell him how proud of him you are.
  25. Always offer him a bite or a drink of whatever you’re having. 
  26. Buy some pretty pajamas to wear to bed regularly. 
  27. Offer to get him something to drink or eat if you get up to get something.
  28. Tell him, “I trust you,” “I believe in you,” and “I know you’re good at (fill in the blank).”  
  29. Make a list of all the things you love and appreciate about him, and give it to him to keep.
  30. Pinch his behind when he walks by you at home and just smile back at him.
