Our daily lives can be pretty hectic.

As a busy work from home mom and a homeschooling mom, my plate is pretty much full. My husband is also very busy with his work too.

Still, it is so important to make time for your husband and remind him that you still love and care about him, no matter how busy and hectic life is.

Take the time to make your husband feel special and to show him some love.

10 simple ways to remind your spouse you care.

  •  Send out a good morning text.

A simple “I love you” or “thinking of you” can go a long way. Do you remember being in high school and awaiting a text message from your crush in anticipation?

It shouldn’t have to stop just because you two are married and have been for quite some time.

Send out random and thoughtful text messages throughout your day to put a smile on your husband’s face.

Sometimes, I wish my husband a good day and let him know I love him and that I’m thinking of him. Just a random, “I love you” will suffice.

This is such a simple and thoughtful gesture that will be sure to remind your husband you love him. Text him now!

  • Have a morning coffee date with your hubby. 

Even just brewing a fresh pot of coffee for your partner is a nice way to start the day. Just drinking a cup together, before the day begins shows your spouse you care enough to squeeze some time in with them.

You can talk about what you’re looking forward to the day to come.

Not just that, you can make plans with each other and catch each other up to speed on what’s coming up in the day ahead.

Here is a beautiful matching Mr. & Mrs. coffee mug set for you and your husband to enjoy during your morning coffee dates. These are so adorable and classy!

Personally, my husband and I aren’t coffee drinkers. However, we enjoy black tea daily as our daily caffeine.

My husband makes mine most mornings. I just love sharing my warm cup of tea with him daily.

Whatever works but this coffee mug set is so thoughtful and cute! I’m sure he’ll love the gesture of you making time for him to chat in the morning.

  • Say your nightly prayers together, as a married couple. 

Do you know when you tuck your kids into bed and say their prayers with them? Pray with your husband too!

The old saying can be quite true, “A couple that prays together, stays together.” 

Make time to pray to God over your finances, your jobs, your health, and your children.

God loves you both and wants you to pray together to him. Keep your faith strong by praying together and sharing your faith together.

That’s what I love about marriage. God gave us a partner to share everything with, even something as beautiful as faith.

There’s so much to pray for and about every single day! I love to pray with my husband and my husband.

I even created a free printable for 10 prayers for your husband you can print and put into your planner.

  • Take a class together to create even more memories together. 

I’m sure there are things you wish you could do with your spouse. Take a cooking class, salsa dance class, or even a swim class together!

My husband and I enjoy hiking together with our kids and taking beach trips out for a few hours.

We also like to garden together and visit new parks with the kids.

It’s just a fun way to create more memories with your spouse. Make sure to take photos of these classes or new memorable moments to look back on later in life.

Here’s a beautiful photo album where you can keep your memories together.

My husband and I love to look back on our old photos together.

We have an album where we were younger and we laugh at some of those old photos! Make sure to hold onto the memories.

Keep the romance alive in your marriage.

  • Make the time for a weekly date night. It doesn’t matter if it’s inside or outside.

It’s so important to have a date night with your hubby, whether it’s at home or out. Making time for each other reminds you both how much you love each other.

Try to have a weekly date night.

Have kids and are don’t have a sitter to watch them so you can spend time outside the home together?

Same! Here is some great date night in ideas for married couples I have compiled for you!

When my husband and I have date nights in we make sure to rent a new movie we haven’t seen before to watch together.

We also make some food together and enjoy a late-night snack when the kids are in bed.

Make your date nights something to remember. Spend a little extra time on making it more memorable and thoughtful.

The point is to keep trying to have date nights, even when you’re tired. Spending time together is so important!

  • Cook your husband’s favorite dish. 

This is an oldie but a goodie. Packing your spouse a warm, love-filled lunch could be just what they need during a busy and stressful workday.

My husband loves it when I cook him a huge breakfast on weekend mornings.

Some mornings, he will cook for me and I’m appreciative to not have to cook!

Even ordering their favorite takeout when you don’t feel like cooking shows him how thoughtful you are. I like to ask my husband what he wants in particular when cooking him a thoughtful dish.

It’s just a sweet thing to do. You should try to do that for your husband one day if you haven’t already!

Love should be shown daily.

  •  Tell your husband one thing you love about them daily.

Letting your husband know how much you love them, is obviously important, but also taking the time to tell them a different thing you love about them daily shows a lot of effort on your part.

Make sure you tell them before they leave the house to go to work! That way you can make him smile before he leaves.

Try saying kind to your husband daily and you’ll see that your husband will say one kind thing to you too. Make it into a routine to grow your love together.

Cross the boxes off as you go! And let me know how it goes for you.

  • Pick your husband up an inexpensive thoughtful gift.

Everyone loves to receive thoughtful gifts, that’s no surprise. However, thoughtful gifts don’t need to be super expensive.

There are so many inexpensive gifts you can get your husband that are still amazing.

Here is a thoughtful and inexpensive keychain you can get your husband for only ten dollars on Amazon!

He will appreciate the thought you put into him and how kind this gesture is.

He can put this with his keys and see it every day to remind him how much you love him.

The last simple ways to show your spouse you still care.

  • Write your husband a love letter or poem.

Writing love letters shouldn’t be a thing of the past. Love poems and love letters will never go out of style.

Romance includes thoughtful love poems and letters.

This is a pleasant reminder that you can still be poetic and romantic, no matter how many years you’ve been together.

My husband keeps all the letters I write to him over the years in a plastic cover. Sometimes, on our wedding anniversary, we like to sit down and read through the letters.

I keep the letters he’s written to me on my desk inside of my desk organizer. Often, I like to pick them up and read them when I have a chance.

Letters are a sweet gesture that everyone loves. I treasure handwritten notes and cards.

My drawer is filled with them! Be sure to write your husband a thoughtful letter if you haven’t already.

He’ll appreciate the thought behind it.

  • Holding your husband’s hand in public.

Don’t forget how it was when you first began dating each other.

Sometimes, when we have been with a person for so long we forget how holding their hand for the first time FELT.

It feels nice and warm!

Don’t forget that feeling or let go of it. It’s truly precious to hold hands like you used to before kids and years of marriage.

I try to come out with a new blog post weekly on mrsplanahead. If you’re subscribed you’ll receive an e-mail the moment it goes live!

Usually, I focus on one topic each month. One month will be all about creating new planning content, marriage, or mom hacks for example.

There are more topics than just those but I’m giving you sort of a general idea.
It takes a while to come up with amazing content.

I like to focus on content creation but one topic at a time monthly.
Personally, I don’t like to switch up topics too quickly because I like to get out all I need to on one topic, then give it a rest and return to it later.

With my content creation, I do like to release at least one freebie per month.
As my subscribers know, sometimes I give out 4 freebies at a time!

I don’t do that as much anymore since most of my spare time is now focused on my Etsy sticker shop. Typically, I’m creating new listings as often as I can to release one a week.

  2. Thank you for this reminder. Love is something that I seek more of from my husband but I could probably start the cycle by doing some of these loving actions to him first. All too often I wonder why I’m not getting what I need instead of giving to him first which starts the love train. Thanks!
