Wondering how to love your husband? Try showing him love in actions, not just in words or feelings!

If you want to show your guy that you think he’s special, you could just tell him you love him. He’ll always want to hear that. And, of course, you can surprise him with the latest iPhone or that golf club he’s been begging for. But probably the best way to make a man feel loved is to offer some simple, everyday acts of kindness that show him you understand him. These little gifts will give something back to you: a marriage infused with more trust and friendship and a deeper sense of togetherness.


  • Praise him in front of the kids.
  • Greet him at the door when he gets home–drop whatever you’re doing and go kiss him!
  • Make him a coffee to take with him in the morning.
  • Give  him a backrub.
  • Brag about him to your friends when he can hear.
  • Tell him one thing you admire about him in relation to his work–and try to make it a different thing every time you say it!
  • Rub your fingers through his hair as you’re watching a movie.
  • Lay out his clothes for him the night before.
  • Make an appointment to get an oil change for the car.
  • Sort the mail so he doesn’t have to.
  • Put on lipstick and fix your hair 15 minutes before he’s expected home from work.
  • Text him and tell him specifically what you love doing with him.
  • Bring him a glass of water if he’s working out in the heat.
  • Bring him a drink when he’s working at his desk.
  • Ask him what he’d like for dinner–let him choose the menu at least once a week.
  • Wear something you know he loves.
  • Going out to pick up an ice cream/treat with the kids? Bring him one, too–even if you went out during the day when he was at work. Save it for him, with a note, “We were thinking of you!”
  • Rub him dry when he gets out of the shower–and put some “manly” moisturizer cream on him, or some talcum powder. Towel dry hair for him, and tell him you just love how he smells. Granted, this one may be a little sexual. 🙂
  • Read a bit of a book/funny story/newspaper to him while he takes a bath.
  • Pray for him while you’re lying in bed–out loud. Reach out, put your arm on his, and say a sentence-or-two prayer.
  • Walking by him? Reach out and touch him for a second!
  • Rub his feet while you’re watching TV.
  • Ask him his advice on something–and then follow it.
  • Ask him to explain something about a hobby to you.
  • Don’t just tell him you love him–tell him WHY you love him.
