Are you ready…I’m talking easy and fun today! We all have a loved one whether it’s your husband/wife, a girlfriend or boyfriend, a BFF, your neighbor or your family!
Dote on them. Give to them. Love on them. Brag on them. Be their cheerleader! I love to mix up these 5 things for my husband. During the week he works long hours…approx 12-13 hours a day. Reality is we don’t see each other a whole lot during the week but the little things can really go a long way and bring our relationship even closer, although we are apart.
- Candy – What I love about the New Milka OREO Chocolate Candy, is it’s a slight twist to the first thing my, now husband, sent me when we were getting to know each other. He sent me his favorite chocolate- Milka…now this is a new twist to it! Find the latest and the greatest I found (candy aisle at Walmart!) the NEW! Mika Oreo at Walmart + right now you can also earn $1.00 with Ibotta, to top it at their everyday low price! Our favorites we tried: Milka Oreo Choco-Mix Snack Mix, Milka Oreo Big Crunch Bar Chocolate Candy Bar and the Milka Oreo Chocolate Candy Bar
- A Card – A hand written note (even if it’s as simple as a sticky note) goes a long way!
- Find Unexpected Places- Think of the unexpected places they will find a little happy. Can you leave a note in their wallet, laptop or lunchbox so when they open it up at work they see it? How about find their latest read and leave a little something where their bookmark is.
- Random Text- Send an unexpected text at an unexpected time of the day. You know just a simple – Thinking of You or I love you, who doesn’t enjoy that?
- Chore – Yes you read that right. Is there a “chore”, for lack of better words, that your loved one assumes responsibility for around the house? Have you ever just stepped in done it for them that day? Oh this can be a love language right here!
What can you add? I’d love for you to comment below and give me more inspiration and ideas, Pretty please?!

These ideas are great. My husband and I have been married almost 12 years, and we still do the little things like this often. A random “I love you” text message is an easy way to brighten someone else’s day. A special snack? Definitely the perfect gesture! #client

I’m sort of coming from the other side of doting. I’m the husband that’s always doting on my wife and bragging about how stunning she is and how wonderful she is and how she still takes my breath away after 6 years of marriage. I know how important it is that she knows how much I Love her and how wonderful I think she is, and I also know how important it is that she FEELS Loved and not taking for granted. I am so very attentive to not get lazy or too laxed when it comes to always making sure she knows how special and wonderful she is, and especially to me. The problem is, lately, if she hears me telling someone how beautiful my wife is or, God forbid, I show someone her picture and comment how stunning she is………She gets mad. Like pissed off, mad at me. It’s dawned on me it’s because she doesn’t feel the same way about me and she’s embarrassed to have me as her husband, where I’m so very proud to be able to say she is my Wife. Where I do everything I can for her and dote on her endlessly, she wants to spend less and less time with me. I have never felt a hurt like this. So deep a pain all the way down into my soul. If I had changed a lot since we were married, like let myself go or what have you, maybe I’d understand better. But I look just about the exact same as I did 6 years ago when she married me. So, I don’t understand what it could be. I wish I did because I would fix whatever it is to win her eye and her heart again. The only thing that I am speculating about is she went through menopause during the 6 years. I know it can affect so much. Could it be the culprit? Or at least part of the problem? Any ideas of what I can do? This IS KILLING ME.
