- Get a pad of Post-It notes and write little love notes to your wife. Leave them all over the house where she will find them (her laptop screen, the bathroom mirror, her sock drawer, etc.). Be as creative as you want.
- Do whatever home repair project(s) she’s been wanting done for weeks/months/years.
- Pray for her (with her).
- Serenade her – even if you can’t sing or if you do it karaoke-style or get a friend to play guitar while you serenade her from outside her bedroom window.
- If you want to splurge a little, take her to a hotel or Bed & Breakfast for the night with a pair of her favorite pajamas and a couple books she has been wanting to read. Tell her you’ll take care of the kids while she relaxes by herself reading, ordering room service, etc. Pick her up the next day with a dozen roses for her.
*Bonus idea – Pull out your wedding album and spend the evening looking at the pictures and reliving the day together.
Warning: If she even imagines that you are doing this to get more sex, you may as well forget the whole thing (and call a marriage counselor).
Can you add to my list? Wouldn’t it be fun to come up with 50 or 100 ideas?
