Brighten Your Boyfriend's Day ...

By Holly

There are easy ways to brighten your boyfriend's day when he's feeling sad or when you just want to score some brownie points. It's never a bad time to do something nice for your partner. That's why you're with him, after all. If you're not sure how to get a smile on his face, here are a few simple ways to brighten your boyfriend's day:

1 Buy Chocolatey Treats

Women aren't the only ones who love it when their partner shows up at the door with chocolates. If you're a great baker, you can whip up some delicious brownies or a batch of cookies. Otherwise, you can pick up a bag of his favorite candy at the store. Bringing him a snack is one of the best ways to brighten your boyfriend's day. Whether you're delivering the treats to him at work or right to his room, he'll appreciate your thoughtfulness.

2 Send Old Pictures

You can brighten your boyfriend's day with one compliment or photo. Scroll through your phone to find an old picture of the two of you to send him. If you don't have any, you can snap a picture of the necklace he bought you and tell him how you can't stop staring at it. Do whatever you can to remind him of how special your relationship is.

3 Help Him out

If you know he has a paper to write or a big meeting to prepare for, you can visit him to help him cross some items off of his to-do list. While he completes his assignments, you can help him clean up, feed the pets, or cook dinner. He might not ask you to help around his house, but he certainly won't mind if you do.

4 Find His Favorite Movie

Even if you've already watched his favorite movie with him ten times, he'll be happy to watch it again. If you really want to make him happy, bring over the DVD and a bag of popcorn. Then you can dim the lights and make-out during the boring bits. His favorite movie is a sure way to brighten your boyfriend’s day.

5 Leave Little Notes

Write little notes to him about how much you love him and place them around his house in spots where he'll find them. If you don't mind waiting a few days for him to get his surprise, then send him a handwritten letter and mail it to him. He's used to getting emails and texts from you, so an actual letter will be refreshingly romantic.

6 Just Tell Him

He should already know how you feel about him, since you're dating him, but people like to be complimented. Don't be afraid of your flattery going to his head. Feel free to shower him with as many compliments as you can think of. He'll love it.

7 Plan the Future

Today you may be miles away from him, but that doesn't mean that you can't plan a fun date for the future. Buy tickets for a concert he's been dying to see or make reservations for his favorite restaurant. Even though you won't get to go until the end of the month, he'll be able to look forward to it if you tell him about it today.

When you care about someone, you'll do whatever you can to brighten their day. What's the nicest thing you've ever done for your boyfriend to make his day better?
