Do you remind your mother, sister, partner, grandmother, niece, etc., that you love her? With the constant hard work and effort women put into their relationships, the least anyone else can do is show their appreciation for her. Gifts are not necessary to make the women in your life feel special; there are countless other ways that mean so much more—check out our suggestions below.
Offer a Listening Ear
Sometimes a woman only needs a listening ear to witness her ranting and raving about anything and everything going on in her life. You don’t necessarily need to offer feedback; being attentive and listening to her problems is enough to show her that you care about what she has to say. Oftentimes, she needs to get something off her chest, and an unsolicited act by offering a listening ear will show her how you value her as an individual.
Give Her a Surprise Embrace
Whether the woman in your life is your girlfriend or your mom, nothing is more powerful than an unexpected embrace. You can show your love to your mom by buying her her favorite things. But in some cases, the only thing she needs is a warm hug from you. She can ask for one whenever she pleases, but one without asking means much more to her.
Consistently Make Time for Her
Women often plan for family vacations, parties, shopping trips, etc. Show her how much you care by taking the planning reins and showing her a good time. Carve out a portion of your day or week for the woman in your life. Nothing will make her feel more special than a planned day she had no part in creating.
Be Vulnerable With Her
Women are constantly putting themselves on the line for their families, and the least you can do for them is be vulnerable. Tell her how you feel, let her know you love her, write her notes, etc. It may be hard for you to become vulnerable, but you’ll find that confiding in someone you love could also benefit you.
How will you show the women in your life that they are special? Gifts are lovely, but small gestures can speak volumes. Do something that comes from the heart and reminds her that you love her, whether she is your mom, daughter, sister, wife, or partner.
