Spoil your hunny!

Go out of your way to make him feel special. Even if that means ironing his clothes for work or stocking the fridge with treats he would never expect. I like to surprise my husband with things like cases of RedBull or a jar stocked with gummy bears. It shows him that I went the extra mile to make his heart's desires available at his finger tips.

Eden Godsoe: You are good. I need to do more of this! In my husband's case, I could address your top 2 tips by stocking up on bacon & cooking it for him!

Cook his favorite meal or create something from his favorite ingredients.

My husband loves bananas so for breakfast the other day I surprised him with banana pancakes. He loved them and even made the comment that he felt spoiled! What?! Amazing!

Krista: A sweet and yummy idea is always good! I'd love to see a list of your favorite dinner recipes or top date ideas...your blog looks great.

Vonae Deyshawn: Krista , those are some great ideas! Just for you!

Krista: Yay! I'll keep my eyes peeled.

Make it a priority to go on a date once a week.

Get dressed up, throw on some make-up and act like it's your first date every time. Aim to impress! Your hunny will appreciate it.

Eden Godsoe: So agree with this. We have had a standing Sat night babysitter since our kids were born and always take advantage of it.

Wrestle one another.

This seems pretty crazy huh? But hey it works. My husband and I have been wrestling each other since we were twelve years old and we still enjoy it. He even bought me a pair of pink boxing gloves that I love to put on when he's really in trouble. There's something about the contact and playfulness of wrestling that really gets the love flowing. Just make sure you're very careful. It's also a blast to see who's going to win. I usually do.

Beatriz Sandoval: Great idea!

Let him be right.

I know I know, it's hard to let someone be right when we know they're wrong. And believe me, they're wrong a lot but why fight about it. What are you really going to gain? Let him be right and have a relaxing time. : )

Surprise him by being compromising.

When I went from being the stubborn wife to a more flexible partner, my husband was truly shocked. Read my back article on why compromise is good for a relationship.

Leave cute little notes around the house.

These don't have to be long and extravagant; just a little something to say "hey, I was thinking about you." My husband works late so I like to leave him colorful notes on our front door. He loves it when the notes are accompanied by his favorite candy; gummy bears.

Claudia: This is such a cute idea :)

Take a bike ride on the shoreline (or a scenic bike trail) and stop for some yummy ice-cream.

Creates some great romantic quiet times and memories.

Travel Together

Oh the places we will go! There's nothing more fun than discovering new places with the one you love. My husband and I travel a lot and it's usually together. We love visiting new cities to explore their culture, food, and most importantly their shopping!

Added to Your List

Light Some Candles.

There's nothing more romantic than having a candlelit dinner with your honey. Don't save the candles and rose petals for Valentine's Day, keep the romantic feeling all year round. It takes about five extra minutes to make things extra special.
