You love your man deeply, and even though he might realize that, it makes sense to express your love toward him in an outward manner, through your behavior and actions.
Here are 28 cute things you can do to express your love your man and make him feel extra special.
1. Love notes
Leave little love notes scattered around your shared house or his flat in both obvious and immediately found but also less looked in places.
You could place them so that when he gets into bed he finds them, in his lunch box or in the glove box of his car.
Alternatively you can write a message on the bathroom mirror in lipstick – he’s worth the cleaning up it will take!

2. Caring through cuisine
Cliché it may be but cook your man his favorite meal to show him you care and you can’t go wrong.
Make a real occasion of it and inject some romance by setting a beautiful scene – candles, music, flower petals scattered on the table and glittering table decorations and settings. Or how about making something handmade (cookies, bars, cakes/pies etc.) to surprise him?
3. Personal voucher booklet
Make him up a little booklet of redeemable vouchers which he can use whenever he likes. They can be favors and treats like bringing him a cup of coffee in bed for a whole week and also include anything of an intimate nature and fantasy fulfillment.
You can also make it fun with things like ‘on presentation of this voucher I promise to sit through a whole episode of [insert his favorite TV program that you dislike] without complaining once’.
4. Compliment him
That doesn’t just mean saying ‘I love you’. Tell him spontaneously and for no special reason that you think he is sexy/gorgeous/beautiful etc. It isn’t just women who need to be assured that they are desirable and attractive to their mate.
You can also tell him you admire him or he makes you laugh like no-one else can or make comments such as ‘that was a sweet/kind/thoughtful thing to do’.
5. Tell him how much you miss him
Tell him you’ve missed him even if you only saw him a few hours ago or even if he only went out of sight for a few minutes. Here is a collection of miss you quotes that you can use.
6. Flirt with text
Flirt with him by text throughout the day or as you go about your day to day lives.
7. Make little sacrifices
We’re not talking major compromises here – just little things like going with him to do something he really wants to do but knows you don’t.
8. Breakfast in bed
Who doesn’t like breakfast in bed – it’s a universal ‘I love you’ statement to make.
9. Write him a letter listing the reasons you love him
Write him a little letter or make him a poster listing the 10 or 20 best reasons you love him. It can be silly, sexy, serious or a mixture.
10. Boy time with blessing
Send him out for some time with the boys with your blessing. Not only does this show trust but it also demonstrates you are acknowledging his needs and happily giving him some space.
11. Acknowledge and praise him
Remember to praise any achievements or little accomplishments and acknowledge his efforts in all sorts of little things.
It could be as simple as ‘thanks for taking out the trash’ or it could be praising him on his work or study. Be careful not to go overboard here though or it cheapens the intent.
12. Seduce him
It’s not always the boys who kick everything off but research shows that in the majority of relationships it is the man who most often initiates the love-making process. Surprise him by seducing him slowly or moving in on him for a change.
This is not just going to please and surprise him but will also flatter his ego a little (which exactly the same as the girls, needs bolstering every so often), making him feel sexy and wanted.
13. Date night
If you have been in your relationship for a while and a little past the initial dating stage then plan a date night. Make it something special or meaningful for you both – perhaps you could re-enact your first date.
14. Give him a massage
Receiving a massage is a treat for most people and if you offer this when he has had a difficult or tiring day you will earn extra points.
15. Seek his advice
Most men like to fix things and feel needed. Make sure you follow at least some of the advice through though or the intent could backfire.
16. Call him using a cute nickname
Make up a cute nickname that is based on some positive trait that he has. Here’s a list of 200 nicknames if you need ideas.
17. Dress up for him
Wear something that he truly loves seeing you in. Put on the type of make up that he likes on you. Now remember, you are not getting ready to go out. Instead, you are putting in the effort to look good only for him and that will make any guy feel extra special.
18. Give him a handmade gift
There is nothing that screams ‘special’, than a handmade gift. The fact that you took the effort to make something for him would leave him feeling like a prince.
Another option is to give him personalized gift(s).
19. Be affectionate with him
Simple gestures like holding his hand while walking, resting your head on his shoulders/chest, giving him long/tight hugs, cuddling with him etc. can have a big impact when it comes to making him feel desired and wanted.
20. Take an interest in his passions
Find out what his true passions (the things he is interested in) are and try to develop an interest in them.
For example, if he likes playing video games, ask him about his favorite games and why he likes them. Every once in a while, play with him or even better, allow him to teach you how to play. Do this even if you hate video games.
Showing an interest in his passion/hobbies is one of the best ways to make him feel special.
21. Be good to his friends and family
If he has close friends or if he is close with one or many of his family members, it is important that you maintain a good relationship with them too.
A simple comment like, ‘I love your mom, she is so sweet!‘, will make him feel that you are one with him.
22. Support him
Be his personal cheerleader. Lift him up when he is feeling down. Motivate him to pursue his dreams. Trust his instincts and abilities. Make him feel that you will stand behind him and support him no matter what.
23. Accept him for who he is
Acceptance is the greatest gift you can give him. Accept him for who he is. Don’t try to change him or control him. Try to be more understanding and respectful of his beliefs and way of life.
24. Make him feel manly
Praise him for all the qualities in him that you find manly. Tell him how attracted you are to him.
Don’t try to compare him with other men in a negative way. Instead pamper his ego, by comparing him to other guys in a positive way. Tell him how much better he is to them.
25. Make him a priority
Make him feel that no one can come between you and him. For example, if he is talking to you and you get a text message, do not start checking the message. Instead, ignore it and give him your full attention.
26. Organize his life
Most men are messy. One of the most personal things you can do for him is to organize his life for him.
For example, organize his closet/work desk, do his laundry, clean his home/room, you get the idea. This will make him feel super cared for and he is sure to rub off on him so he starts becoming more organized himself.
27. Pack his lunch
Every once in a while or even better, daily (if you find the time), pack his lunch for him. When he eats lunch, he will think of nothing but you. Do this if you want to take things one strep further and make him feel extra special.
28. Stock up his fridge
Stock up the fridge with his favorite snacks, beverages, confectioneries so he never runs out of them. He will not only appreciate the gesture but also find it very caring.
So these are 28 ways you can make your boyfriend feel special. This list is not exhaustive in any way, but doing even a few things on this list should help you get the message across to your man that you love and care for him deeply.
