37 Ways to Romance Your Husband

I love my husband a lot! Although, we have been married for 3 years and we are definitely not in the honeymoon stage anymore. It happens. I desperately want to keep the spark alive in our relationship and I know it is going to take effort on my part just as much as I want him to romance me. Plus it really just brings joy to my life to see him happy and feeling pursued!

I found this lovely little bit of loveliness from Steph over at Littlebitofparadise about romancing your husband.

I have adjusted the list just a little bit to mirror what my husband loves and I think I am going to do my best to implement them over the next month or so. I will definitely keep you updated on how this goes.

37 Ways To Romance Your Husband

  1. Dress up, primp (makeup, hair) before he comes home from work. Taking care of your physical appearance for his sake, if not for your own, means a lot to a man.
  2. Buy a six-pack of his favorite beer and put it front and center in the fridge with a post-it love note on it. (If he prefers dessert, do the same with a half gallon of his favorite ice cream in the freezer).
  3. Determine your husband’s “love language” and do at least one thing a day for a week that specifically says “I love you” according to his love language (see the book The Five Love Languages by Dr. Gary Chapman).
  4.  Make him a romantic dinner wearing your favorite apron and his favorite lingerie.
  5. Go on a milkshake date. It is goofy and just a fun way to connect over something yummy!
  6. Go shopping together for new lingerie. Often.
  7. If your husband loves books and/or music: plan a “bookstore date” where you’ll each pick out a new book for the other, or a new CD. Don’t forget coffee and dessert and relaxing convo in the café before you leave!
  8. Leave a lacy unmentionable in his gym bag or briefcase so he’ll find it during the day at work.
  9. Watch his favorite nerdy show with him. Even though it may seem silly or even lame in some ways, watch it with him. He will love it!
  10. Let him sleep in on a weekend.
  11. Order his favorite food and have it delivered just as he gets home for a surprise date night.
  12. Always affirm and compliment him in public. Don’t criticize or belittle, even if your girlfriends are doing it to their husbands at the same gathering.
  13. Let him pick the date, time, location, position. Just make sure he knows you can’t wait. Alternatively turn the tables on him: YOU pick the scenario when he least expects it. Show him that you can’t keep your hands off him!
  14. Let him have time with his guy friends. Don’t nag him to come home right away!
  15. Don’t give him a to-do list on the weekend.
  16. Verbally express your admiration and respect. Often.
  17. Defer to his decisions joyfully. That means without complaining.
  18. Choose to spend a night in with him rather than going out with friends.
  19. Text/email little notes and messages during the work day. Sexy ones and “just cuz” ones.
  20. Book a local hotel room, and take him, candles, wine, and take-out dinner for a romantic escapade neither of you will forget.
  21. Do something active together.
  22. Plan weekly “date night ins”. Order take-out. Rent a movie. Play a game. Just sit on the couch and soak in each other. Whatever makes it a night relaxing and fun for the two of you, but especially for him.
  23. Admire his physique. Verbally express appreciation that he takes care of himself.
  24. Allow him to play his favorite computer/smartphone/video game “guilt free” (i.e., without nagging from the wifey).
  25. Plan an outing for just the two of you doing his favorite outdoor adventure: kayaking, tennis, hiking, trail running, biking, snorkeling, fishing, etc.
  26. Let him pick the movie, TV show, or game. Even if it’s one of those action flicks you can’t stand.
  27. Choose to wear a sexy nightgown to bed vs. the oversized t-shirt and flannels you love so much.
  28. Celebrate his achievements at work, school, etc. Make a big deal out of his accomplishments.
  29. Thank him often for being a good provider and taking such good care of you.
  30. Make eye contact and give full attention to his response after you ask him “So babe, how was your day?”
  31. Pray for his intentions, and make sure he knows you’re his #1 prayer warrior.
  32. Buy a week’s worth of new silky/lacy under things and wear one new item every day for a week. Tell him he has a new surprise to check out at the end of each day. (No Hanes or Fruit of the Looms allowed for this one, ladies!)
  33. Go on a brewery tour or distillery tour. Something he loves and something I love.
  34. Apologize sincerely for something that upset him and ask for his forgiveness. And if he reciprocates with an apology, don’t demand a specific list of what he’s apologizing for. Just accept it. And if you can seal that apology with a hug, a kiss, and perhaps some make-up rough-and-tumble, so much the better.
  35. Verbalize your desire to try something new/adventurous in the bedroom. Or out of the bedroom.
  36. Make his favorite meal. I am one to try new recipes all the time and some of them can be quite strange. Make something he knows and loves. He will be so appreciative of it!
  37. Say “I love you” verbally. At least a bajillion times a day.
