Reaching over to grab his hand in a crowd is one of the best ways to make your boyfriend feel loved and wanted. If you are in the beginning stages of your relationship, holding hands means a great deal. Simple actions like pulling him close to you make him feel secure in the relationship.

2. Take Him To Your Favorite Place

We all have a happy place where we could spend hours alone and be at peace. Sharing this place with him and taking him there indicates that you trust him. You could spend some intimate time there, making memories that would last forever. A small gesture like this would make him feel welcome and special.

3. Steal Some Kisses

Sneaking in a quick peck on his cheeks while no one is looking is one of the cutest signs to show him that he means a lot to you. Be playful and flirty, making him feel desired and appreciated. It shows him that you are proud to have him around and are not afraid to demonstrate your love.

4. Draw For Him

Make a cute card for him or doodle the things you do together to create wonderful memories of you both. The next time you think of going to the gift shop to buy him the perfect card, stop! Consider making it yourself – it will bring a smile on his face, for sure.

5. Commit To Him

You can demonstrate your commitment to your boyfriend and the relationship by doing simple things such as taking down your profile from online dating sites and apps, posting pictures of the two of you on your social accounts, and changing your relationship status to “committed” on social media.

6. Gift Him Something Special

When it comes to guys, finding the right gift might be challenging. It is best if you stick to things that he can connect or relate to – be it a watch from his favorite brand or a tie he will wear to work. You can also try making unique crafty gifts and customize them with your personal pictures. These are the gifts that will make him feel wanted and special.

Chanelle Hayley, a blogger, planned 25 gifts for her boyfriend’s 25th birthday. “I combined sentimental handmade gifts, with humorous ones as well as some of his favourite sweet treats. The gifts are unique and not what you’d automatically think to buy (i).”

You can also ask him if there’s something he has been wanting to get but hasn’t got around to buying yet and whether you can get that for him. Alternatively, focus on his hobbies and passions and get him gifts related to those fields.

The ability to laugh with your partner is important because it shows you can take on anything that life throws at you, without getting bogged down.

10. Write Small Notes For Him

Sometimes, you may think that he might not appreciate gestures like a card or a special love note. Well, he might probably be collecting all your good morning notes and keeping it in his diary to show off to his family and friends. To make his day, leave small notes beside his pillow appreciating him for being caring, kind, and loving.

11. Notice Him Closely
