Most probably he is already sick and tired of all that takeout, pizza, fast food and other food that he eats during the day. It must be nice to come home to his favorite meal prepared by the person he loves the most. Even if you think it’s just a lot of hassle, you can be sure that he will remember this occasion for a long time.

Let him have a night off

In case you’re looking for the most romantic gesture, you have to let him go from time to time. As much as you wish to have a night out with the girls, as much he wants the same with the boys.

Allow him to have a night out with his friends and don’t bother him with a curfew. Let him do what guys do: watch a game, drink some beer, share stories with his friends and so on. If you give him this much freedom, you can be sure that he will come at night and hold you in his arms like he never did before.

Although all these 8 gestures are nice and reassuring, you shouldn’t let your boyfriend get used to them; you don’t want to seem needy or clingy. Also, if you spend most of your time only thinking about how to make him happy, chances are you will stop being at some point. However, showing mutual affection from time to time is completely normal and healthy in a relationship, and that is another reason to take your time and bring a smile to your guy’s face with a nice gesture.
