8 Cute ways to tell your partner you love them
We all like to be appreciated and we all need to be told that we are, but in the race that is modern life, we sometimes do forget to let those closest to us know that we still love them. Showing that special person in your life that you love them really doesn’t take much effort and can be the key to a long lasting and happy relationship.
Don’t wait until Valentine’s Day to say ‘I Love You’, do it today! Here are 8 simple ways that you can let your lover know that they are still loved and appreciated:
1. Leave a note somewhere unexpected
Leave your lover a note somewhere that they won’t be expecting to find it. Finding a note out of the blue is a lovely way to be reminded that you are loved. You can leave a note on the bathroom mirror, stick a message on their car windscreen or, if your partner is going on a trip, put a short letter inside their suitcase. A surprise message will be particularly appreciated when you are apart.
2. Prepare a favorite meal
Surprise your partner with their favorite meal already prepared for them, when they come home from work. Taking the time to cook it yourself will mean so much more, than simply going to a restaurant.
3. Surprise your partner at work
Treat your lover to a surprise lunch date. Break the monotony of their working day by turning up unexpectedly for lunch and it doesn’t have to be at a restaurant or a bar either; why not prepare a picnic for them and go to a park for lunch?
4. Hold hands
You’re never too old to hold hands in public. When you’re out walking, gently taking your partner’s hand keeps things intimate, even in a public place.
5. Run a bath
When a hard day is done, there’s nothing more relaxing, than a nice hot bath; preparing a bath for your partner will show that you really care. Make it special by adding some favourite bath salts, put on some music and, for an extra touch of luxury, warm some bath towels in the tumble dryer ready for when they get out.
6. Give your partner the day off
Sit them down, tell them they’ve got the day off and do their share of the chores for them. Just pampering your partner for the day and giving them a break is a great way of saying thank you for all the days that they do the chores.
7. Make a music CD for them
Make up a compilation CD of their favorite songs and welcome them home with a medley of your shared favorite tunes from when you were first dating or surprise them and put it into their car CD player, so it comes on when they start the car in the morning. Isn’t it romantic?!
8. Just tell them!
And, the simplest, easiest and cheapest gesture of all – tell them that you love them. Remember to thank your partner, when they do something nice for you and just let them know that they really are loved and appreciated.
Deep down, we all have a little insecurity in us and we want to be told that we are doing things right and that we are loved and appreciated. So don’t take things for granted, tell your partner today that you love them; it’s such a simple thing to do.
