Everybody deserves attention, appreciation, and acknowledgment from their partners once in a while. You can do little things for them and make them feel special in your own way. If you want to appreciate your partner, and yet are confused about where to start, the tips mentioned in this article will come in handy for you.
You might be wondering, “What is the best way I can show my appreciation for my partner?” and are thinking of doing something creative in order to let your partner know how thankful you are to have them in your life.
The following suggestions will ensure that your partner feels assured that you see them for who they are, accept them, and most importantly, let them know how much you love and care about them.
A direct approach is often the best one to let your partner know how much they mean to you and the special place they occupy in your heart. Being direct also ensures that you do not overcomplicate things and the best thing you can do is to pick the right words and phrases and say how you really feel in your heart. If they do something special for you, say ‘Thank you’ from your heart. This is the most simple approach from where you can start, and you can further express your gratitude to them for being the kind and loving person they are to you.
Write a “Thank you” note for them:
One of the cutest ways in which you can show your appreciation for your better half is to write a heartfelt “Thank you” note for them and leave it somewhere for them to read (the most common would be a sticky note on the door of their refrigerator quietly). You could also leave the thank you note in their lunchbox, or perhaps as a bookmark in the book that they are on the way to finishing at the moment.
Spend enough time with them:
There is nothing better than making your partner feel special by spending your free time with them, in the comfort of their arms. Cook something special for them if you can, and make them feel adored and wanted. Read them a story while they fall asleep with their head resting on your thighs. When you spend quality time with them, they will know that you truly appreciate them.
Take interest in what they like:
If you want to spend more time with your partner, you have to know about the topics that they take interest in, about their hobbies and specific likings and dislikings as an individual. You are not bound in any way to like the exact same things that they like, you are a different person after all and naturally will have your own inclinations, likings, and dislikings. Those shape up your individuality, your personalized signature. However, if you take a certain amount of interest in their hobbies and try to partake in that, two things will happen as a resultant – they will feel loved and appreciated enough when they notice that you are taking out our time to partake in activities that they like, and secondly, you might just develop a new hobby! You might develop the passion and the drive for building something new.
Be physically affectionate towards them:
Physical affection and proximity are much needed when it comes to loving someone. When was the last time you gave your partner a lasting, proper hug? In our busy lifestyles and packed schedules, we often forget to take out time for these little things. So, take out time to give them hugs, kisses, caress their neck and back – make them feel loved and comforted.
Help them out with their chores:
This holds good especially if you two are living together. While you might do the routine chores that are assigned on your part, in order to show that you truly care and appreciate your partner’s presence in your life, you can do something out of routine and partake in some of your partner’s duties as well – help out with their routine or occasional chores in and out of the house.
Compliment them for who they are:
The best way to compliment your partner is to accept the way they are and tell them what qualities you find attractive in them. When people are complimented, they quite naturally feel good about themselves as it boosts their self-esteem. So, praise your partner for the things they have been successful at so far, for all that they have achieved till date, it will make them feel better about themselves.
Buy flowers for them:
One of the most effective yet classy ways to show your respect and admiration for someone is to buy them flowers – this sweet yet thoughtful gift will make them realize how special they are to you. So, gift them flowers and tell them that you see the same beauty in them. Do not hesitate to let them know how beautiful they are.
While we all want our efforts to be acknowledged and to be respected and admired for the human beings we are, it is important that we give back something to the world from time to time. The same rule applies while we are in a relationship, it is important that we make our partner feel desired, appreciated, and wanted from time to time. When it comes to making your partner feel special, it is important that we acknowledge who they are and appreciate them with small acts that will remain as pleasant memories in their mind forever.
