    What sweet stuff do you do for your partner on normal days?

    I thought with all of the Valentines day "Hoopla" and the thought that we need a day to tell those we love that we love them, It'd be nice to talk about we we do, or what we can do, to show those who we love how much we love them the rest of the year.

    I will generally get Belle flowers every week. We have a priceless vase that was her grandparents and it's absolutely gorgeous. It looks so plain without flowers. Nothing fancy usually, just the bouquet from Vons or something usually.

    Also, when we go out on "dates" I always open her car door for her. It's just one of those small gentleman'y things I like to do. And I think she likes it as well as I will sometimes be able to steal a little kiss before I close the door.

    Some things I know I could do more of would be realizing when she needs a rest, putting candles in the bathroom, drawing her a bath and making her relax.

    Also un-solicited foot-rubs. I do the foot rubs, but usually only when asked. I think it'd be nice of me to have all the stuff ready and just do it without being asked. I think she'd like that.

    So what do you do on a normal basis that makes your partner happy? What more could you do? Let's share ideas. I'm hoping to get some good ones.

    I like to leave little notes for my husband to find. I also email him throughout the day just to say hi or to tell him I love him.

    My hubby gives me head and neck rubs - I love them!

    My biggest thing to do daily is just to say thank you - if he does something nice, cleans something whatever - I like to know that I'm appreciated, so I figure that he would too.

    Will trade husband for Disneyland and DCA Pins!

    Hubby and I almost always hold hands when we're out or in the car. It's a little thing, but it means a lot...

    The BF likes having his head scratched, so sometimes when we're watching TV I'll do that for him and he pretty much turns to goo. LOL!

    Help around the house and treat her nicely all the time. Ocassional hand-holding doesn't hurt either.

    That's so sweet.

    When I went to the Philippines for work, Belle made me cards for each day I was gone. It wasn't that big of a thing, but it was awesome to have since I was pretty much alone in a foreign country.

    We do that too. If I'm driving and don't put my hand on Belle's leg she puts it there. I love it.

    Re: What sweet stuff do you do for your partner on normal days?

    hubby does SO much. he helps around the house, always does the dishes and takes out the trash! When I'm tired, he bathes the kiddo. Today, he took her to school and picked her up since I wasn't feeling well. Taking time off work to do both! AND, he tracked down and bought two books I have been looking for for years and gave them to me as a surprize today. Oh! and he cooked dinner!


    For him, I rub his feet, he has flat feet and they kill him. I do the laundry and clean the house. He's such a neat freak, I like for the house to look nice when he comes home from work. And since food is his favorite thing....I'll make his favorites, or a special treat.

    We leave notes for each other around to. And our poor kid has to deal with us snuggling and holding hands and hugging all the time. Poor thing.

    I like to cook, so he gets nice home-cooked meals (I don't know if it's a big deal to him). I make his lunch for work, and if he mentions a treat he'd like me to pick up (like chocolate peanut brittle), I will try to make it if I can.

    My husband does a lot of little things (way more than I do), and he does buy me flowers every week, but my favorite sweet little thing is that he rubs my ears to make me fall asleep. Gets me every time.

    I'll buy him flowers on occasion, and a sappy card here and there. I'll write him letters too. I like to do that sort of stuff. I'd love to GET that sort of stuff too, but that's a different story. I'm not bitter about it, really!

    I think letter writing is a lost art. I also love letters.

    I let him continue to live. Isn't that good enough?
