Updated on June 28, 2015
shawna.wilson profile image

Shawna is a registered nurse raising a family in the beautiful desert of Arizona.

Everyone loves to be loved, and we all feel love differently. I feel loved when my husband helps out with the kids and the house or plans a getaway for just the two of us. Like most men, my husband likes to be shown love physically. Make a point everyday to express your love for that special someone in a way that will make him or her feel treasured. Some of these ideas are romantic gestures while others are just little things you can do each day that will make a big difference to your companion. Whether you’re looking for date ideas or ways to show appreciation to your spouse, here are 100 ways to show your mate you care.

Where is your favorite place to go on a date?

      Great list, Shawna! Lots of these are really special and should be done every day. After talking to my husband about Valentine's this year, I came up with an article that is very action-based, too... “14 ways to Say I Love You Without Words” at InspiredMinute. So far he's a happy camper! Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

      My husband gave me roses of my favorite color just because. And sometimes he just looks at me with those eyes that he had when he first told me he loved me. How he does I don't know but it is great :)

      This hub is great! I write notes and leave them in my husbands lunch box. I write notes on the bathroom mirror in lipstick or eyeliner pencil. I call him when he is about to get off work occasionally, at 2:00pm and ask him to join me for a late lunch (he eats his at 10:00am is always hungry again!) for just the two of us! Time alone is hard to come by. We take care of my parents who live with us. We also have an older disabled foster daughter and a 17 year old niece who live with us! A bath for two is a must for what we call our down time alone! It is where we discuss our day. Talk about anything and everything and a lot of decisions are made. :) The bed is for sleeping and making love! Otherwise we are both so busy we don't have much time to talk alone.

      Robert E Smith 8 years ago from Rochester, New York

      shawna, I do so many stupid things to show my honey-pie that I love her. I have put notes on the computer. I have dropped by her work just to give her something cold to drink. I gave her one flower at a time and never let it die without replacing it. I did that for years until she told me to stop. I have made a complete ass of myself to win her heart just about every day of our marriage. I guess I'm a weird guy.

      SH-yes, I made the list myself.  Once I got to number 70 or so, it was pretty hard to think of the last 30!  Thanks for reading :)

      Constant Walker-Who doesn't love to be in love? :)  I'll have to read The Rose.  I never have.  I appreciate your comments so much.

      sgjerome-I'm sure your wife will appreciate whichever display of affection you choose to show.  Happy Valentine's Day!

      Mahmo-it's the simple things that really make a difference in my life.  My husband doesn't have to do anything huge, just small things here and there to show me he appreciates me. Thanks!

    • Constant Walker profile image
