I answer this question a lot on here, but here goes again. The way you do it is that you tell your husband every day how much you appreciate how very hard he works for you and the family. You brag on him to his children in front of him. You brag on him to his parents in from of him. You let him know that you respect his honesty, his integrity, and his wonderful sense of humor. You greet him every afternoon at the door with a kiss when he comes home from work. You give him some time to unwind and relax before you tell him what terrors the children have been all the live-long day. You fix his favorite foods for supper, and you tell him you did it just for him because you love him so much and appreciate him so much. You tell all your girl friends how lucky you are to have him for a husband. They will tell their husbands who will in turn tell him. This only works if you're married. If you're just shacking up, sprinkle nutmeg.
