Little ways to show men you love them?

January 12, 2012 10:20pm CST
I personally feel that men have vast options when it comes to giving women gifts or surprising women with kind geustures. For example, what woman doesn't love to be surprised with roses, chocolates, jewelry, stuffed animals, massages, bubble bath, candles..ect..? lol What are some good ideas to surprise men with just to show a man that you care? I have been with my boyfriend for 5 years and I always fail miserably when I try to surprise him. He is into computer stuff (hacking, PC games, building his own comp ect..) What can I do to show the man in little, simple ways that I love him? Any ideas? For the men reading this post, what would YOU like for your wife/girlfriend to do for you to show you that they love you?

I think when it comes to men, most of them wants support and appreciation unlike women who looks forward to having gifts as form of showing love. Anyway, Iam a woman and I would like to hear what men thinks.

There are just as many ways for women to show men as vice versa. You just have to be a little more creative! Little notes in his brief case, lunch, or pocket........or a sticky note on his computer, just simply telling him, he's being thought of, or how much you care about him. An evening of watching a special movie. Or a simple whisper as you pass by him. It doesn't have to be bought, or expensive. Just get creative! good luck

Thank you! Those are fantastic suggestions! I love the idea of slipping a note into a pocket or briefcase. Thanks again. I will try some of those ideas.

for me just by beinbg concern,be faithful to him,little hug makes him feel his important.You can also let him feel by doing the things he loves you to do.You can surprise him sometimes of some nice card of love,giving cheap but memorable gift.i am not so romantic and showee,my husband sometimes said im cold hearted,but there are time he knows how much i love him.

It's kinda hard to buy surprise gifts for my boyfriend but if he's been talking about something that he wants, then I'll sometimes surprise him with it. But all the other times I surprise him with little notes, his favorite foods, or a massage. My boyfriend works a lot so when we see each other he's usually really tired. So while we watch tv I'll scratch his head(his favorite thing) or scratch his back or give him a massage. Guys love simple things, you don't have to go all out with extravagant gifts all the time. They love to hear us say nice things about them, it makes them feel really good. My boyfriend has really soft skin in some areas and I always make sure I let him know how much I love those soft spots and I can always tell how happy he gets to hear that. Don't forget it's the little things, saying nice things will really make a guy feel good and just do the simple little things you know he likes

Constant little gifts can actually get annoying. Make sure your guy knows what you like about him and especially let him know that you appreciate the things he does. We really aren't all that hard to please.

You can show people that you love them just by supporting them in their daily lives. I don't like with my boyfriend at the moment, but I stay over two nights each week. Because he works very long hours, he doesn't really get much time to keep his flat clean and tidy, and hardly has any time to do his washing. When he's out at work I will spend four hours trying to get the flat into a nice condition because I know that these are the types of things that he will appreciate more than anything material that I could get for him.

Frankly it is hard for me to be surprised NICELY. What I am afraid of is that the surprise may be a shocking one. For example, my wife just can't buy me a Ferrari out of the blue even though she knows that it is my dream car, as there is no way that we can afford that. If we do have the means, I am sure I wouldn't be so surprised anyway as I would have been used to having such lavish gifts. If she just wants to show me that she loves me, it is the little things in life. She can cook my favorite dish for me. She can comfort me when I am down. She can celebrate with me when I am up. It is her understanding and caring that makes my life. It is those little everyday things that show her love to me. I want a quiet, smooth journey with her. I don't need anything else.

Well first of all, surprising your guy with pc games, comp stuff and everything might be kinda dangerous for you, as you might not know when he already been there, had that and done that. Just like giving him a pc game without knowing he already has it. Most guys somehow, really like it when girls praise them about something, make a huge fuss over them as if they were a small kid. And at the same time, you could give him something like a wallet or a watch?? just try n change the way you treat him to a different way that you know he might like and perhaps tht is the best surprise he'll ever get?? =) haha

I think appreciation and support is still the greatest gift from a woman. There are girls who nags and fails to appreciate us. And that hurts us a lot even if it does not show. You can try any gift also that is related to computer. Just be aware though like he may have that already or hates that particular item. Or you can buy him his favorite food and just have a dinner with him I love food a lot so my wife knows that every minute that she steps outside, food is something to be taken in LOL

Adrian loves to smell good so I always bu him body wash and anything else he could use to smell good. Valentines day adrian will get $50 in a love letter because I always write him one and leave it on the counter for him. r tape it to the front door.

I find that doing little things like...cooking a meal that they like, offering to do something for them while you're up (get them a drink or whatnot) Taking the time to do something they dreaded doing so they dont have to. A light touch as you walk by...taking the time to cuddle or listen to them. Honestly even being female...actions speak louder than gifts. Him taking the time to brush the snow off my car before i have to leave...set me to tears the first time because i knew he did it because he cares.
