How can I show my husband my appreciation for how hard he works?

My husband has been working so hard through this pandemic, and I want to do something for him to show him how appreciative we are of everything he has done and continues to do for us. We do not leave the house as we have an immune-compromised child, what is something creative we can do for him at home?

Cook his favorite meal and you know a little fun in the bed wouldn’t hurt

Let him pick out his own grill.

Can you decorate the backyard like a oasis kind of like a private island. Then after kids r in bed sit out and watch the stars.

Ik it’s usually the woman who get all the romantic stuff but men appreciate it also

Honestly u can do all kinds of things for him but i bet alittle sucky sucky would be the most appreciated gift lol then maybe a meal and movie but def tske care of his needs first :joy::joy::woman_shrugging:

That is so sweet wanting to do something special for him. Good men that have tried hard in their marriages sometimes never even get a kind word or anything positive from their wives to know they are appreciated and loved. Its beautiful that you aren’t so caught up in yourself that you take the time to see the good in your husband. I hope this read can inspire more wives to take notice of how good they’ve got it so they won’t chance losing that good man.

I’m the Teflon don watch me eat this seshwan :muscle:

The thing that stands out with most of these comments is how banal they are. And how few of them there are.
You must be a good woman. Otherwise you mi6not have thos good man.
My advice?
Keep telling everyone what a good man he is. Particularly friends and family.
Invite him to skip any chores he has for a few days.
Leave him to sleep in.
Organise a lovely day out with you and the children.

I make mine his favorite meal . And I write him a letter telling him . And I don’t ask him todo anything while he’s on home time from the road .
He doesn’t have any hobbies aside from me and the kids lol so it’s tricky . Or I will order him a new Apple band . Or awhile back I ordered him this wallet that he really wanted .

For Fathers Day my kids and I filled a decorated mason jar with all the reasons we love him-and our favorite times we have had with him. It was stuffed all the way to the top! He loved it! Now, he is the sentimental type. I have found over the years those are the little things he cherishes the most.

I would make sure he is taken care of make sure you make him breakfast , lunch and dinner and put little love notes in his lunch box and leave little love notes in his brief case , in wallet s y where he would look to just let him know how much he means to you. I do this almost everyday, I have a full time job and we have been together almost 24 years and he still smiles and sighs when he finds them because he knows I took the time to tell him that I love him.

Fill his tub and let him relax a while and give him his favorite drink and give him a message. Just let him have a day to enjoy are nap and agree with Amy fix his favorite meal. Just spoil him for a day. SWEET.

I feel the same about my husband. COVID aside we also have a 6 month old so we weren’t getting our much anyway. We’ve been having home dates on Fridays where he picks up takeout and we watch a movie or binge a show or we go for social distance walks together. He likes the occasional video game night after the kids go down so I got him a GameFly membership and I’ve been encouraging him to go out for motorcycle rides on weekends for “him time”. Also, making sure I make his favorite meals.

Jk lol, order takeout or cook something yummy for dinner, sit down and watch a movie together and tell him how much you appreciate his hard work.

Make a point to look him in the :eyes: and tell him every single thing you appreciate him doing. Maybe get a special dessert (his fav) for after, and finally, show him in a physical way at bedtime. :smile: JS

What does he love aside from you guys? My husband loves hunting, fishing, some bands, and certain books.

I would think about what he really enjoys and then go from there.

All else fails, a coupon book of the little things he likes, like a dessert, back rub, 1 hour of him time, his favorite dinner… With the stipulation he redeems it at at least 24 hours before use.

Make it like a birthday party, but a thank you party instead. You and your son make a banner, make a cake, maybe his favorite dinner… Followed by a movie for the kid and sex for you two. Lol
