You know you care. You feel it in your heart all the time. The love you feel for someone whether it be your partner, your child, your best friend or whoever. This person is super special to you and you care about them deeply. Oftentimes though, we forget to show people that we do care or we take it for granted that they know we care and feel we don’t have to do anything to prove it or show it.
For the most part, you really don’t have to prove you care. You know you do, they know you do and that should be enough, right? Well, it is enough, really but every now and then it’s nice to show people so they don’t think we have forgotten or are taking for granted that they know and that’s all that matters. Here are a few simple, yet loving ways to show you care, so they don’t forget. It also makes them feel a little extra special and let’s face it, sometimes we need those little subtle acts.
Simple, effective. Who doesn’t love to get a random text from someone special that simply says I love you? This doesn’t have to be just your partner it could be your best friend, sister or anyone you love really.
2. Bring treats.
You know what their favourite tea or cookie is. Make a special trip that cafÃ© up the street that sells them, get one and bring it to them. Want to make it even more special? Stick a bow on it. Why not?
3. Pick up the phone and call them.
Texting is quick easy and fun but there’s nothing like hearing someone’s voice on the phone. That’s the kind of special act that puts a song in our heart and a skip in our step.
4. Grab them for a random road trip.
Text your friend, tell her be ready in 5 minutes, pick her up and hit the open road. If your friend has been low lately, this will certainly pick up her spirits and show her that you care.
5. Music is therapy.
Download their favourite song and email it to them or share it with them on their FB page. Music makes everyone feel love and happy. They will know you have been thinking of them and that you go the extra mile for them.
6. Happy notes.
This could be a love note or an inspirational note or maybe even just a fun cute note to make them giggle. Stick it in their coat pocket, their lunch pail, tape it to their cell phone cover or wherever you know they will find it easily. We all love fun notes.
7. Offer your time.
You are both super busy with work and family but every now and then one of you crashes. Go and sit with them for half an hour or half a day, without them asking you to and just listen to them or hold them or do whatever they need you to do or be for them.
8. Take them somewhere they have always wanted to go.
I don’t mean Paris or Ireland, unless of course you have the means, then, by all means, but maybe they just really want to go to the movies or out to dinner. Either take them there yourself or buy them a gift certificate so they can do that with a family member or someone else.
9. Give them praise or compliments.
Maybe they just faced one of their fears or achieved something that they’ve been meaning to do for a long time. Or maybe they haven’t done anything but they are just a super awesome person. Let them know. Don’t be afraid to tell them just how fantastic they really are.
10. Mail them a card.
You know, like snail mail, through the post office with a stamp on it. These days the only thing we get in the mail is junk and bills. Wouldn’t it be nice to receive a cute loving and fun card? I know I sure would love to receive something like that.
