16 Things You Can Say To Make Him Feel Loved And Appreciated

Ronald Hoang, a Relationship and Family Counselor, emphasizes the importance of sharing appreciation, admiration, and fondness in maintaining healthy relationships. He explains, “Couples get into a negative pattern of telling each other what’s wrong with the other person and what they dislike about the relationship – this creates a negative downward spiral for the relationship. Instead, couples should focus on what is going well and what they do like about their partner – how we celebrate is just as important as how we argue.” Now let’s take a look at some of the things you can say to your husband to make him feel appreciated.

1. “I’m So Proud Of You, Dear Husband.”

If your husband does something for you or has achieved a goal, take time to appreciate him and show how happy and proud you are. Your constant support will encourage him to be better and make him feel loved and appreciated. These words of appreciation will make him work harder to achieve his goals in life.

Consider gifting a photo frame engraved with these words for his office desk. It will serve as a motivational reminder whenever he needs encouragement or motivation.

2. “I Appreciate Everything You Do For Our Family.”

Our mind is wired to focus on everything negative. Both partners work as the thread that binds the family and keeps things smooth. However, in that process, we often tend to forget to appreciate the husbands. They may never express and stay happy with how things are running, and acknowledging their contribution can boost their spirit. Showing gratitude and appreciation for small tasks will strengthen the bond and seal your relationship.

Judy Douglass, a blogger, reflected on her 37th anniversary, and beautifully honored her husband, Steve. She marveled at his countless acts of service, from fixing her morning coffee to handling household chores, and his unyielding belief in her capabilities. She shared, “He thinks I can do anything. I have taken faith risks because he was sure I should/could. He is always saying, ‘You can do that’ (i).” Her tribute echoed gratitude for their harmonious differences and the unity they share.

3.  “I Love You, My King.”

You might have probably become so comfortable in your relationship that you no longer feel the need to be vocal about your love for each other. Even if you think your husband knows how dearly you love him, saying those three magical words matters.

Saying “I love you” to your husband sends the message that you care. It emphasizes the trust and commitment in your relationship. Saying it is a way to make him feel that you accept him for what he is and add a layer of security to your relationship. Moreover, who doesn’t want to hear these words from their lady love!

4.  “I’m So Glad That I Chose You.”

This is the best way to reinforce exclusivity and make your husband feel loved. Saying these words will help strengthen the connection you have and promote safety in your relationship. These words carry a lot of weight – they will make him realize his significance in your life. When he knows what he means to you, he can go to any extent to keep you happy.

5. “You Are My Best Friend, Dear Hubby.”

You may have wonderful friends in your life. But there is nothing better than having a partner as your best friend and confidante. When your husband is your bestie, it means your relationship has all the traits of a great friendship – it is replete with mutual respect, trust, adventure, and unconditional love. Confessing this to your husband will make him feel good as he will know how comfortable you are with him.

 6. “You Know How To Make Me Smile.”

They say that laughter is the best form of therapy. And the enjoyment doubles when the person who makes you laugh is your husband. You may experience highs and lows in a relationship. Things may get stressful, and you may develop a sense of anxiety and despair. However, when your husband has the special power to counter all negatives with his positive emotions, life becomes easier.

A great sense of humor is one of the time-honored virtues. If your man has it, let him know how much you love it when he brightens your day. It will make him feel good, and he may get more creative, trying to make you smile and laugh every time.

7. “I Love To Spend More Time With You.”

Spending quality time with your partner strengthens the relationship. Both of you may have busy schedules, and even the weekends may be filled with meeting social obligations or simply catching up with household chores. This routine can hamper the rhythm of your relationship.

Spending some “couple-time” will help strengthen the emotional and intimate bond you share. Moreover, saying this to your husband will make him understand how much you enjoy his company.

8. “Thank You For Helping With Household Chores.”

Acknowledge it if your husband helps with household chores. When you appreciate him for his efforts, he will feel satisfied and may even end up helping you more in household tasks. While both may have divided the chores, and both are expected to do their “job,” taking the time to say a quick “thanks” will make him feel appreciated.

9. “You Are A Great Dad.”

Your encouraging words will help him to keep moving in the right direction. It will boost his self-esteem, and he will be more confident as a parent. Let him know you appreciate how he cares for the children. This will definitely brighten his day and fill his heart with happiness.

10. “You Are Always In My Thoughts.”

This is one of the most romantic ways to express your feelings to him. These words reinforce your commitment and love towards him. And nothing makes a man happy than knowing how important, wanted, and loved he is. This may even help ignite intimacy and a deeper emotional bond.

11.“I am Accepting My Mistake And So Sorry To Have Hurt You.”

We are all humans and will make mistakes – and there is nothing wrong with it. However, one should accept their mistakes, learn from them, and try to become a better person. If you did something that could have hurt your husband, apologize and accept it. There should be no place for pride or ego. Apologizing and accepting the mistake will clear the air and show your sincerity.

12. ‘I am Always Ready To Grow Old With You. ’
