It's The Little Things
When we’re busy maintaining our work and family lives, it’s tough to remember to maintain our relationships. After all, he’s your rock and he’s always there for you. However, sometimes his presence is taken for granted. The first step to changing that is recognizing it. Doing little things every day to show him he’s appreciated and loved can help strengthen a relationship, whether you’re two months in or 20 years.

If he's done something for you today, be sure to recognize it.
Take him out
OK, maybe not every day, but taking him out for drinks and dinner on your own dime is a great way for both of you to relax.
"How was your day?"
We all need to get stuff off our chests sometimes. Lend a listening ear — and really listen.
A backrub is a great way to relieve stress. Plus, if it's coming from the woman you love, it's even better.
Make him something
Even if it's just breakfast in the morning, putting the time and effort into making him something means a lot.
Give him control
Of the remote, that is. So maybe you want to watch Ready to Love and he wants to watch something else in the same time slot. DVR your show and make the compromise to watch what he wants... together.
Ask him a fun question
It doesn't matter if it's silly. You might have known him for years, but that doesn't mean you know everything about him.
Let him know you'll be thinking of him when you're gone during the day.
Tell him he's sexy
He is, isn't he? Everyone wants to feel sexy. He tells you how nice you look all the time, but hey, we all need an ego boost once in awhile.
No one likes coming home to a dirty house. If you have the time to clean, take advantage of it!
