18 Cute Ways to Say I Love You…
We’re sure you love your sweetie and he knows it but how often do you actually show him your love? It doesn’t have to always be a grand gesture of say, The Notebook proportions (remember that gorgeous house that Noah built?) but you can always say I love you in your own sweet, cute way that will make his heart melt like silly putty. Here are some adorable ideas that you can use!
1. Say it with an extra special egg
I know it sounds a little silly but I guarantee that it will put a huge smile on his face! Buy a heart shaped egg mold or a silicone ring (readily available in the market), wake up earlier than usual and prepare him a special breakfast with eggs, pancakes, some toast and a cup of hot coffee. For added effect, you could use an “I love you” coffee stencil. Now tell me that doesn’t make you go Aww!
2. Book a weekend away
Sometimes life gets in the way and all you need to reconnect is to take a break and get away from it all. There’s something about nature that releases a sea of feelings that could otherwise be caught in between daily chaos. Many aphrodisiacs are provided by Mother Nature herself so you’d be surprised by how a new place can trigger your mojo! It doesn’t have to be fancy or expensive. Even a cute hillside bed and breakfast will show him just how much you love him.
3. Say it with a card
You can never go wrong with a DIY card. There are thousands of adorable ideas online both for novice card makers and experts. But if you can’t make up words on your own it’s a great idea to use someone else’s. Greeting cards aren’t just for birthdays and holidays. There are categories like “Thinking of you” and “Just because” that are oh-so-sweet. Leave a greeting card under his pillow or on the windshield of his car. I’m sure that will make his day!
4. Watch the sunrise together
Tell him you have something special planned but the only catch is that he has to wake up really early. Do your research beforehand on nearby places that are great to watch the sunrise from. Pack a little no-fuss picnic and if he asks too many questions just shush him with a kiss. Drive or hike to the place and watch the magnificent sun come up together. There’s just something magical about being alone together, watching the sun come up while the world sleeps. If you’re both really not morning people, try the same with a sunset. It is just as gorgeous!
5. Declare a technology free day
Technology has taken the world by storm and let’s face it, many of us are addicted! The average person looks at their phone about one hundred and ten times per day (wow!). There is nothing more annoying than two people engaged in social media when it is time to connect. Declare a technology free day and eliminate all distractions such as cell phones and television. Just spend the day in each other’s company, cook a meal together and tell him how much you love him.
6. Leave him secret bathroom messages
This one is an oldie but a goodie and it’s perfect if you’re the one who usually gets dressed first in the morning. Steam up your bathroom mirror while you shower and leave a cute (or steamy!) message on the mirror. When it’s his turn to shower and the mirror turns steamy, he will see your mysterious mirror love note and smile like he never has before. Look for a reply the next time you’re in there.
7. Do a chore you hate just for him
Say you detest doing the laundry and that’s usually something he takes care of, surprise him and do it yourself. Imagine if he came home one day and found his clothes clean, crisp and ironed. If that doesn’t say I love you, I don’t know what does. So yes, pick a chore that he knows you hate and take care of it for a day. I’m sure he’ll appreciate the simple but love-filled gesture.
8. Random texts and notes
When you’re in the office daydreaming about your partner, it is a great idea to let him know. Sending a text that reads “thinking of you” or “I miss you” may seem corny but it could be just the thing your partner needs. You could even leave him notes on the fridge or under his pillow. It is a great feeling to know that you are on someone’s mind and it’s an adorable way to say I love you.
9. Get hands on
After a long, tiring day, conversations can seem like a blur. Instead of talking, try using your hands to communicate. Pamper your lover with a sensual rub down. Physical touch is proven to heighten emotions and is also a great way to encourage relaxation. Besides, who wants to talk about the stressful day they’ve had at work?
10. Have poetry night
This isn’t the era of Romeo and Juliet, but who cares? Poetry has been used to express emotions for centuries and having a poetry night can be fun. There is no need for a fancy venue, just gather a couple of your favorite poems and recite them to each other by the fireplace, with a glass of wine. If you really want to gain brownie points, try to create a poem of your own.
11. Play a game
Think you’re too old for games? Think again! Playing games can be a fun way to reconnect, have fun and show him your love. Try making your lover go on a scavenger hunt that leads to a cute little gift. Turn on the Kinect and play a fun dance game together. Organize a games night with a bunch of your couple friends. Whatever you choose to play, you’re sure to laugh together and fall in love all over again.
12. More PDA Please!
There is nothing better than the infamous PDA to show him how much you love him. Being able to express your love and remain secure no matter who’s around proves unconditional love, especially in a world where we have thousands of Facebook friends. Social media is also a great way to engage in PDA. Making your significant other today’s crush or giving them a meaningful shout out is a sweet gesture.
13. The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach
They didn’t just make that up, it’s 100 percent true! So take some time out to whip up a delicious meal with some of his favorites. When he asks you what the special occasion is, answer with a “Just because” and give him a kiss on his nose. Isn’t that an adorable way to say I love you?
14. Play hooky
Sometimes you need a break even if life demands your presence. Don’t be afraid to strip yourselves of all responsibility and just enjoy a day with one another. Spontaneous days like this are bound to re-ignite the flame and the time you spend together becomes even more precious since you would normally be stuck behind that mound of papers on your desk.
15. Make him a cute video
In this day and age, where people are addicted to sites like Vine, You Tube, and Instagram, one of the best ways to express your love is through a video. You could make a video montage of your favorite moments together, or put together a funny little act that will make him laugh or just tape a sweet, heartfelt love message. For those who are a bit shy, this can be a great way to say what you want to say without having to be face to face. Sure text messages are cool, but there is nothing more authentic than being able to look into someone’s eyes and read their body language. Don’t worry, you don’t have to post it for the world to see, use the direct message method or send it via video message.
16. Find “your” song
Every couple needs a song! It could be about the way you met, how you fell in love or something that best describes the relationship you two share. There seems to be a perfect love song for every couple out there. Make sure you listen to it every now and then. It is bound to make you feel closer and if your song ever plays randomly when you’re out somewhere, you’ll get caught in an emotional whirlwind, that reminds you why you’re together.
17. Plan the “perfect” date
