Appreciation is the cornerstone to a great relationship with your other half. Practise sincere appreciation on a regular basis and chances are, you’ll receive it back in spades! Grand romantic gestures may get all the credit when it comes to being an appreciative partner but the little things also represent important attempts to establish intimacy and show appreciation. For some people, showing emotions and gratefulness may be challenging for them, because they may simply be too shy or they are not used to expressing themselves. Regardless of your personality, here are some incredibly easy tips to guide you through the ways of letting your partner know how much you appreciate them. After all, you can never have too many tools in your box when it comes to building happy and healthy relationships.
We are a time-deprived society. In the hustle and bustle of life, you might not have made time to connect and talk. Unplug from your devices, sit down with your partner and provide them with your undivided attention over a delicious brew. If your spouse tells you about his or her crummy day because of the rain, you could prepare warm tea and have it ready when they get home. It’s a telling token that demonstrates you listened well and appreciated what they said. If you are wondering what types of tea are good for the intimate moment, consider Nilufer Tea’s Rose Paradise or the Orange & Chamomile. They will be a joy to your senses.
What you don’t say is as powerful as what you do say too. Another way to show your partner appreciation is to look at them and simply smile. It takes seconds to do so and it’s free! We’re sure that there will never be a single smile that won’t melt your partner’s mushy little heart. When you smile, it says in motion that you’re grateful and happy for having them in your life.
Never underestimate the power of the human touch; it’s a basic human need. It tells your partner that you love them, plus it could also calm an argument (if any) in the process. No matter the intent of your affection, physical touch conveys appreciation in the manner a smile can. Not a fan of hugs? You can also squeeze their hand, place your hand on their back or kiss!
Inexpensive, handmade gifts will be treasured because of the time and effort you’ve put forth into it. It doesn’t have to be crazily expensive; it just has to be something that you put thought in. It’s a timeless trend which comes straight from the heart. Fetching your partner from work, making them dinner or even taking out the trash could well be considered a ‘little gift’ as well. The possibilities are endless!
It may seem like common sense, but thank-yous are more than just manners and can be an incredible pair of words – especially if the person you are thanking really needs to hear those words or isn’t expecting to. The power of a simple ‘thank you’ acknowledges your partner’s value and promotes positive marital outcomes in the process. If you’re not one for thanking your partner in verbal form, engage in written gratitude and write out a thank you. Leave an encouraging note in their lunchbox or bag, just like how Mom used to do for you when you were a child.
Of course, the occasional lavish present and fancy romantic gesture will sweep your significant other’s feet away. But, we hope you’d learn to show your appreciation for them in the little things and in the little ways every single day to become a connoisseur of your own partner!
