To make your spouse happy...

What are a few small things that you deliberately do to make your spouse happy? Mine are:

I take great pleasure in making my husband's lunches most days of the week.

BJs twice per month at least...

He loves cookies. It's funny how big a boost he gets when he comes home and finds I've made snickerdoodles or ginger cookies. He's very easy to make happy. In fact, I can really give him a boost with vanilla Tootsie rolls or candy corn. (Yeah--food's a big one. He's also slender, dang him.)

We usually go out on Friday nights. I love going out but he's a bit of a homebody. So sometimes I just say, "Let's get a movie and watch it at home."

my question is you do these things for him, which is great, but what is he doing for you?

I love to give my husband compliments, especially in front of other people. I love the way he beams when he knows how proud I am of him. It is a major ego boost for him, and does wonders for his self esteem.

i have a foot fetish, so i'll usually rub his feet for an hour. And i love giving massages so i'll usually break out the oil and give him a full body massage.

small things to make my hubby happy is I lay his clothes out daily, have the house clean (not that he would care if for one day it were a mess LOL) and have dinner on the table when he gets home ( I am a SAHM so I have time for this) I also try and pick up his fav snacks at the store and give him a little moomoo twice a week LOL

I go to all his doctor appointments with him and provide nutritious meals for him. Funny, he doesn't see the love in that one.

I don't want to sound harsh, but a lot of the things you all are listing (aside from the obviously sexual stuff) sound more like "good mother" than "good wife"...

Well heck 5:28, why not? We all (ok most) learn to enjoy homemade snickerdoodles as children when mom makes them -- so of course it's a pleasure when someone else makes them and serves them to us as adults! Even more so because we _could_ do it ourselves, but we don't have to.

My Mom used to make me breakfasts and lunches.... I'm capable of doing it myself, but it is _nice_ when my bf does it for me. :-)

to make my man happy I get a job and offer to pay for dinner. I learn something about sports. I play thow with him. I call him at his friends house every 5 minutes and say " i loooove youuuu", so he has to say it back and his friends make fun of him....heeheee he will see the good in that later....

My husband recently started working out with me (yay!) and I tell him the whole time how sexy it is that he is taking his fitness seriously. Now he asks me when our next workout is! So I guess making him feel confident is what I love to do for him!
