What better way to show a person how much you love them than by bringing a smile to their face? It could be all that it takes to turn their bad day into a better one. Making someone smile is also good for you because sharing happiness is one of the best ways to make your own life happier. If you don’t believe us, try some of these little things today that are sure to put a smile on the face of someone you love.
1. Give him a big hug
Giving someone a hug, especially an unexpected one, will always lift their mood and take away some of their worries, at least, for a little while. It’s actually been scientifically proven that hugging reduces stress and anxiety. So, go on, give him a big hug today and watch that smile spread across his face.
2. Leave him a note
You won’t have the pleasure of seeing this one work, but we promise you, it will put a smile on his face. Slip a note into his wallet before he goes to work, or leave one stuck on the bathroom mirror. Tell him you love him in a few short words, or just say: “I hope you have a great day.” It doesn’t need to be anything poetic or clever, but it’s sure to make him smile.
3. Bring him breakfast in bed
The prefect way to bring a smile to your man’s face, especially at the weekend, is to bring him his breakfast in bed. It will make him feel so pampered not to have to even get out of bed to eat his breakfast, he will be beaming with delight, and he’ll be happy for the rest of the day too!
4. Give him a sincere compliment
A sincere compliment will make him smile, so tell him he looks good, or he’s done a good job. All too often, we forget to tell people that we are proud of them and that we appreciate it when they have made a special effort. Don’t let him think that he is being taken for granted; tell him today that you do notice the things that he does and you do appreciate him.
5. Surprise him at lunchtime
If you don’t usually meet your loved one for lunch, surprise him one day by turning up with a picnic at his place of work. The effort that you put into preparing his lunch and surprising him is bound to cheer him up and a picnic will give him a break from work for an hour.
6. Tell him a good joke
If you can’t think of any other way to make him smile, you could always try a good joke. Go online and look one up if you don’t know any, and practice before you tell it, so you don’t forget the punchline. Alternatively, check out the latest funny video clip on YouTube and send to him while he’s at work. Jokes can make a person smile, even on the dreariest of days.
7. Smile and be happy
Even when you are in a really bad mood, it’s very hard not to smile when someone is smiling at you. Happiness is infectious, so, if you want to put a grin on someone’s face, be happy yourself and smile at them. Try it. You’ll be truly amazed at just how your own smile can cheer someone else up.
8. Cook him his favourite meal
There is no doubt that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. Cook something special for him and he will appreciate the effort. Ask his mother what his favourite food used to be when he was a child and surprise him with that. That’ll be a winning recipe that will bring some happy memories for him.
9. Do some of his chores for him when you know he is busy
If you know he is short of time and up against some deadlines, helping out with a few of the chores that he should be doing will take the pressure off him and make him smile. You never know, with a bit of luck, he’ll return the favour and help you out when you need him to.
10. Tell him you love him
If telling him you love him doesn’t put a smile on his face, then either he’s not listening, or something is going very wrong! We sometimes overuse the words “I love you” and they lose their true meaning. If you say it, like you mean it, and you look into his eyes, he will know that he has something special, and that’s got to make him smile
