22. Buy him a nice writing utensil, his favorite beverage, or something else he’d enjoy.
When it comes to small gifts like mentioned above, it’s truly the thought that counts. I could care less what my husband gives, I just like that he had been thinking about me when he purchased (or made) it.
23. Write “I love you” in a banana peel and send him to work with it.
Just use a pencil and after a couple hours the inscription will become brown and show up clearly on the peel. It’s kind of fun! And it’s bound to make your husband smile when he goes to eat it during his lunch break.
24. Buy a bag of individually wrapped candies and hide them around the house. Tell him there are X number more once he finds the first one.
My husband loved the anticipation of this “game.” Make sure you remember where you hid them all (especially if it’s chocolate so it doesn’t melt), or else you may be finding candy in odd nooks and crannies years later.
25. Send him one-liner inside jokes via text/email.
You know the humor your husband most appreciates. Perhaps you have a favorite joke that you share and laugh over every so often. A good joke in the middle of the work day may be just the thing he needs to uplift him.
26. Serve him breakfast in bed.
Breakfast food is yummy. And to not even have to get up out of bed to prepare it or eat it is even better! Prepare his favorites and have it ready even before his alarm goes off.
27. Write him a love letter.
This day and age, letters seem to be a rarity. It’s more convenient to email, text, or facebook message somebody rather than to take the time to hand-write and mail and letter. But every so often when you do receive a letter, isn’t it far more special than the more common forms of communication? It may take you a couple days to carve out enough time to finish it, but start the effort to bless your husband with a well thought out letter, today.
28. Say “thank you” genuinely and often.
It’s nice to be appreciated, no matter what it is for. Our husbands can’t hear those two words often enough. Make a habit of thanking him for every little thing he does.
