Most of us girls are easy to buy for. Valentines to us are flowers, candy, lingerie and cards. Lots of red hearts and smoochy kisses. What can we gift our husbands that will tickle their love fancy. As fun as red boxers covered with kisses or tickets to watch a romantic movie, men would like us to know that there are others things they like. Let's look at three things that men really want.
Remember to say "Thank You" for all the little things your man does. Men enjoy our thoughtfulness. When we admire our men it increases their confidence in our love for them. Have you considered the power we woman have in our man's lives? Many women don’t understand how their level of approval or disapproval, their look of love or disgust can deeply affect a man’s sense of well-being, connection and value.
What ideas can you think of that will express "acknowledgement"?
If your man hears criticisms all the time from you it is a big kill buzz. He may just stop doing anything at all that you wish. Remember to tell him how much you appreciate him and what he does. Appreciation increases a man’s self-esteem.
What have you noticed your man doing that you can "appreciate"?
We as humans want acceptance. Our men want to be accepted as they are. I heard it put this way, "Men marry hoping the woman will never change, while women marry hoping their men will change." ~Albert Einstein
Make your man feel that your love for him is genuine. He is your lover, not your project. Ponder on this: acceptance DOES NOT mean agreement.
How can you let you man know you accept him?
Comment what you can gift your man for Valentine's Day. I love new ideas.
