It doesn’t have to be a holiday or birthday celebration for you to utilize these great ways to surprise your spouse. Make your partner feel loved by surprising them out of the blue with something unexpected. It doesn’t have to be too big or expensive, but the ways to surprise your spouse should come from the heart.
1. Breakfast in Bed
This is one of my favorite ways to surprise your spouse, especially since we tend to think of breakfast in bed as something a man does for his girlfriend or wife. Now, they might think, “How much money does she need?” if surprises aren’t something you would normally do. However, after you tell him you are just doing it out of the kindness of your heart, he will then fall in love with you all over again!
2. Bring Home a “Just Because” Gift
Let’s face it ladies, we go shopping more than our guys do and we don’t always think of them while we’re out. So, the next time you’re out looking for a new party dress pick up something for your guy too…just because! It could be something you know he needs, like a new pair of sunglasses he hasn’t yet picked up since breaking his last pair, or something you know he’ll enjoy like a bag of his favorite candy!
3. Surprise Road Trip
Is your spouse always mentioning places they would love to take a road trip to? This year surprise your partner with the road trip of their life when they see the car packed and ready to go! The fall is a perfect time to go on a road trip in the Eastern part of the states, the Autumn foliage is stunning.
4. Love Notes
Has your spouse been experiencing a rough week at work? Tuck a sweet little note into your partner’s lunch and make his/her day better when you express your love and appreciation. Sometimes we just need a little encouragement and support to get through a bad day or week, and after reading your note, your guy/girl will feel empowered to keep going.
Take a drive to your spouse’s work and surprise your partner by either bringing a really amazing lunch you prepared or by taking him/her out for lunch! Besides your little love notes, taking a lunch break together will also help them power through the rest of their day, especially if it’s dragging on!
6. Watch the Game Together
Do you always make excuses when his favorite team is on TV as to why you can’t sit down and watch it? Next time the game is on, surprise him by making the best nacho recipe ever and sit down to watch it together! Who knows, maybe you’ll enjoy it and become a big sports fan!
When was the last time you baked your spouse’s favorite cookie or cupcake recipe? Surprise him/her when s/he comes home from work with a fresh batch of cookies or make something you’ve never tried before that they’ll enjoy as well. Or better yet, call your partner’s mom or grandmother for the secret family recipe that your partner hasn’t had since s/he was little!
8. Spice Things up
Are you the couple who goes to bed wearing sweat pants and t-shirts every night? Why not spice things up a bit and surprise him by wearing sexy lingerie? Don't forget the body oil so you can give him a back rub he'll never forget!
9. Game or Concert Tickets
Instead of just watching the game on TV this season, surprise your spouse with game tickets so he can watch his team up close and personal! If he's not into sports, is his favorite band coming to town next month? Don't just get him tickets, but backstage passes as well!
It doesn't take a lot of effort to surprise your spouse and make him/her feel special. What are your favorite ways to surprise your spouse?
