do you do when your husband helps you with the dishes or daily
chores without you asking him for help? Or when he looks after
the kids when you are late from work. Well it is no doubt
his duty but let me tell you a secret-men love it when they
are appreciated and thanked in a special way for all the help
they have been. So the next time your man does something nice
without you asking for it or expecting it from him give him
a treat and tell him how much his help meant to you in the
following special ways.
Give Him A Love Coupon
This will help you in the most romantic
way. The love coupon is a way to tell him that you love him
and you want him. Men do need a little romance, and they are
hopeless in asking for it. So why don't you slip him a sexy
coupon, redeemable anytime for a night of romance and passion?
Put it in a perfumed envelope and surprise him by sending
it to him at work, either by courier or just put it in his
briefcase or lunchbox. Don't worry he won't feel shy about
handing you a coupon and, for once, you'll know exactly what
he wants. Isn't that what you wanted-- a steamy night of love
Music can do wonders
Say it with music. Thank him with
a personal compilation of songs that he loves on a CD or a
cassette. If you are not aware of his favourite songs which
is very unlikely then just think of songs that mean something
to both of you, like what was playing during your first kiss,
first slow dance, or a song he would hum to you. Or choose
classic songs that are romantic and have a strong message
of love and romance. You can use MP3s, CDs, and cassettes
that you already have, or try the library. He'll love it and
you will also feel very good to see him lit up.
Pamper him for a change
Unlike women, guys rarely take time
out to pamper themselves. Give him a day of rest and relaxation
with a gentle massage or a bath. Play some light romantic
music, light some aromatic candles and give him a good bath.
You can also do manicure and pedicure. He'll not only look
and feel better, who knows-- He might even return the favour.
Do a mans job
Traditionally, it's the man who
sends flowers and chocolates. Well its high time that ladies
change all that. Call him up and invite him on a date. Send
him roses with a romantic note that will keep him thinking
of you the whole day. Pick him up. Take him to his favourite
restaurant or make him a sensuous meal at home. Wear the sexiest
dress you have or even do a little bit of shopping. Be creative
and turn the night into the most romantic night ever. He'll
feel adored and you'll have fun, too.
Plan a Boys' Night
Men do sacrifice their late nights
and parties in order to be with the family. Think of it you
needed him and he has always been there for you. Come to think
of it, he's been there almost every day. Well why don't you
present him a one-night-bachelors-life and organise a "Boys'
Night". Call up his buddies, beg them to take him off your
hands. Either let the party be at your home or somewhere he
used to hang out before with his friends. If it's at home
give him a kiss and leave. Don't nag about the mess afterward.
This is also an opportunity to take some time out for yourself,
or have a "Girls' Night." You'll both come back recharged,
with lots to talk about.
Do what he
Though football or boxing is hard
for you and you think you can never accompany him to a football
match but think about it he took you to that Chinese restaurant
when he hates Chinese food. You wanted to go to see the arts
exhibition and he accompanied you there. Well now it is your
turn to make him feel appreciated for always doing what you
want to by planning a date around what he would want. Did
he always want to try go-carting? Horse-riding? Karaoke? A
certain restaurant? Don't tell him what you have in mind until
you get there. Or for a real surprise and something exciting
and romantic- blindfold him! Make it a fun adventure, and
don't let him pay for anything. He'll be thanking you in more
ways than one.
Watch his favourite movies
He sat through Titanic and didn't
complain. He pretended to like Moulin Rouge. Well he almost
like all the movies you want to see when the fact is he had
fallen asleep watching those movies with you. Well now why
don't you show him the movies he would love to watch. Invite
him over for movie night. Rent cassettes and give him a surprise
by showing him his favourite ones. Turn out the lights. Turn
up the sound. Choose movies with sequels, like Rocky, Aliens,
Lethal Weapon, The Terminator, Die Hard and The Godfather.
These are sure to get his heart racing.
