What kind of little "extras" do you do for your hubby/man?

I am so exausted these days that my creativity cells have shrunk. I know I used to be so much more clever about letting him know that I care and am still attracted......these days not so much! What do you do for your man to keep things fresh?

  • I randomly surprise him with homemade chocolate chip cookies or brownies from scratch. He says that's when he knows I love him b/c I went to the trouble to make them from scratch.

  • Random text messages during the day. Notes in his pockets that you're sure he'll find by accident. A card or note under his pillow on the bed. I get up after he is in bed and write on the mirror in lipstick. I send him one line emails. I have a service dog, so sometimes I'll write something on a paper, and have the dog deliver it to him.

  • i feel the same lately. pregnancy has drained me, so i don't cook big dinners as often, or do super exciting stuff in the bedroom, or give hour long massages like i did. i'm sure i'll get back to all that eventually, but for now i just try to make sure i do little things so he wont forget how much i appreciate him and how in love with him i am.
    i set up the coffee pot for the next morning, leave little notes here and there, or send an email i know will make him smile while he's at work. sometimes, the kiddo and i take cute pics, just to make him laugh. or i play with his hair when we watch tv at night.
    little tiny gestures, yes, but i think he gets the point. :)

  • I just started leaving the post it notes places for him... I always want him to know that he is appreciated and loved. I do want some more creative ideas though He always cooks for me and gives me massages and everything. i would like to come up with stuff to do too.

  • Aw those are nice ideas! I don't do much, I guess. I bring him coffee in the evening. When he is mowing in the heat I'll take him a glass of water. I make his favorite, meatloaf, from time to time. I try to remember to praise him from time to time. I didn't realize it, and just read about it today while waiting to get my hair done, that the husband wants to hear that he is doing well. That he is appreciated.

  • I always make his plate for him and even get his "seconds" for him.
