Yes, as a matter of fact, when it comes to acts of love and adoration, we do expect you to read our minds. Impossible I know, but it’s part of why you love us.
However, in the effort of practicality, here are a few hints to help you show your dear how much she means to you (hint, Valentine’s Day is on Monday). But these ideas don’t need to be reserved for one day out of the year!
1. Write her a note.
Yes we would enjoy a long love letter, but we’ll be surprised and happy with a post-it in our closet or a note taped to our car. Yes it really can be that simple.
2. Make her coffee
First impressions are always important, but even more if you are not a morning person. Make her coffee and let her know you are thinking of her from the moment you wake up. My favorite is Moose Munch Coffee from Harry and David. Can we say yum? After all, any man can buy chocolates and roses, but surprise her with gourmet coffee in the morning. In my mind, there’s no better way to start the morning. And yes, they do have chocolates with this flavor too.
3. Breakfast in bed is always a treat.
I know the saying is “the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach,” but I think it’s safe to say the same is true for women. And who can resist heart-shaped pancakes?
