10 little things that mean the world to him

Posted October 14

True, your husband might not notice when you've cut your hair, but does not mean he doesn't appreciate the effort. There are certain things your man couldn't care less about but there are few that do mean the world to him...even if he doesn't show it.

Here are 10 things you either should start or never stop doing for your man.

Your choice

Here is one of the biggest things your husband loves. If he ask you where you want to eat tonight, answer his question! It's refreshing to have you actually choose, instead of answering with a causal, "I don't know". No matter the restaurant, you both will be getting time to talk, so in the end it doesn't really matter.


Arguing is inevitable in any healthy relationship, but understand that you are not always right. Showing humility and the willingness to compromise shows your husband you care more about him being happy than being right.

Cooking a solid meal

Yes, not every woman knows how to cook, but coming home to a hot dinner when you are hungry makes anyone smile. Try to make an effort to cook or have a meal ready for your mister. My mother always said the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, and she was not lying when she said that. There's something about a hot meal you didn't have to prepare that makes you feel all warm inside.


Imagine this from a man’s perspective: It has been a long day at work, maybe something did not go the way he had planned, and he's disappointed. He comes home and the minute he walks through the door, a big smile breaks over your pretty face. It doesn't solve any problems but it certainly melts his worries away. At that moment, he is reminded how much he loves you.

Dressing up

Some argue that guys don’t care about the makeup, the hair, or the outfit, but honestly I believe otherwise. I’m not saying you need to look good all the time but putting in a little more effort on date night wouldn't hurt. Your man likes to see his gorgeous wife. Pulling out those black heels will definitely catch his attention. He might not notice exactly what you are wearing but he will realize you are looking good for him and that will make him smile.


Listening might sound like an easy task, but it really isn't. It takes real talent for someone to genuinely listen without handing out advice, scrolling their phone or letting their mind wander. Giving your husband your full attention lets him know that he is the only thing you care about right now. Sometimes all a man really needs is a good woman to sit and listen to what he has to say.

Being spontaneous

Everyone loves surprises. One day while you both are at work randomly text him a lengthy message explaining all the reasons you love him. Or maybe wake him up right before dawn to watch the sunrise together. Your husband adores it when you break up his day with surprise.

Foot massages

A little massage means the world to your husband. He knows you have had a long day too, but you're willing to go the extra mile for him. He'll remember that moment and maybe surprise you with a massage too!

Household chores

Nobody loves doing them, but they have to get done. It's fair to split the chores evenly so both of you are helping to run the household. However, your husband can't express how much he appreciates when you've selflessly crossed off a task or two off his to-do list.

You don't need to do these things every day, but just putting forth more of an effort to make your man happy will strengthen your marriage. He will notice. He'll appreciate your hard work and make him love you even more.
