  • fix his dinner plate and have it ready for him when he wakes up instead of him having to fix it himself (he sleeps during the day)
    fix one of his favorite meals
    dessert works too :D mine likes peanut butter cookies
    and it always helps to throw in a random "thanks sweetie" even if he's just been sitting on his butt for an hour

  • There is nothing wrong with showing appreciation for your man. She didn't say he didn't appreciate her. I say thank you when he does things. Sometimes simply acknowleging when he does something does the trick. The kitchen looks great, thank you for dinner, thank you for putting the kids to bed I'm so tired, you look nice today, I'm so glad I have you to help me with the ______.

  • Honestly I am supportive that is how i show it. I give him hugs for no reason other than that i love him and appreciate him. My DH would never expect me to be a maid to him by attending to his every need like making a dinner plate. Sorry That's just me, I grew up watching a family friend wait hand and foot on her husband and he never seemed to appreciate it he expected it and I remember hearing my mom and many others talk about how awful it was that she did so much and he treated her so badly. I always thought to my self "I will never be like her" and I am not, I do take care of my DH but he knows where the plates are lol, I have made his plate for him at times but I do it because I want to, not to show appreciation. I tell him how much i appreciate what he does for us and in turn i hear daily how much he appreciates what i do for him.

  • I'm still here aren't I? That is what he says to me when I say, can you show me you love me? He doesn't think it is funny when I say it.

  • I tell my hubby on a regular basis that I appreciate him and what all he does for our family. I used to write him notes that would just say "I love you, thank you for doing all you do to make our lives better, I hope you have a great day, I'll be waiting for you to get back home to us, be safe" etc..
    In the morning he usually fixes me a cup of coffee, but if I'm up before him I put it on, and if I see it's ready before he does, I get him a cup, sometimes I fix his plate, sometimes he fixes mine... it's give and take on our ends on things like that. Of course I'm responsible for laundry and any cleaning that gets done. But I tell him I appreciate the things he does that he doesn't have to... like take his clothes to the laundry room, puts his plate in the sink, when he takes out the trash....
    Thank You goes a long long way.

  • I always would give my husband (boyfriend at the time) back rubs after a long day of work. I'm a real hands on touchy feely person and I would always show my appreciation with affection. But that stopped a long time ago....

  • Sometimes when my dh has been working alot of overtime, I'll put a little note or card in his lunch, sometimes just a post-it saying I appreciate how hard you work for us and I love you....

  • I often tell him how much I appreciate the things he does. I hold his hand, hug him and laugh at him when he is funny.
