16 Ways to Make Your Husband Happy

Keeping a marriage active and exciting is complicated by the stresses of routine. Whether you're just married or approaching your tenth wedding anniversary, romantic relationships require a lot of thought and preparation to stay healthy. Luckily, there are a few little things you can do to keep your husband happier and more loved every day. Always remember that you know your husband like no one else, and that you shouldn't be afraid to make a difference to please him!


Method 1 of 16: Prepare his favorite dish

Make Your Husband Happy Step 1

Step 1. Does your husband love spaghetti and meatballs or is he more of a candy fan?

No matter what his favorite dish, prepare it after a hard day to demonstrate how much you value it.

  • The way to a man's heart is through the stomach, believe me.
  • Not sure what to do? Grab a cookbook and prepare something he's never eaten before. Maybe you can discover his new favorite dish?
  • Trust me, something as simple as this can help you know you're thinking about him.

Method 2 of 16: Put on a sexy outfit

Step 1. The sweatshirt pajamas are nice, but underwear or a sheer nightgown is on another level

Get your husband excited at bedtime!

  • You can buy sexy clothes on the internet or in sex shops, whatever.
  • Obviously, see if he's in the mood before putting on the sexy outfit. If the guy is in a bad mood, he probably doesn't appreciate your effort.

Method 3 of 16: Spice up your sex life

Step 1. No matter how long they've been together, sex is an important part of a romantic relationship

If you're tired of your sex life, shake things up. Of course, this doesn't mean you need to buy fancy new toys! Maybe it's enough to change their routine, whether in the times or places they use to have sex, or even play a little more in bed if they tend to take things more seriously in general.

Not sure what to try? Ask the hubby! Talk about fun things to do as a couple

Method 4 of 16: Massage it

Step 1. Everyone loves to get a shoulder rub after a hard day, and your husband is no exception

Sit behind him and massage his back, shoulders and feet with a fragrant body cream!

  • For a sensual massage, turn off the lights and light some candles, making the environment more cozy.
  • Professional massages are often very expensive, and a homemaker will show you your love without draining your savings. In the end, everyone wins!

Method 5 of 16: Bring him breakfast in bed

Make Your Husband Happy Step 5

Step 1. Saturday mornings are lazier and can be even better eating a warm bauru in bed

Tell him to stay in bed while you make him some coffee and something to eat. Take a tray to bed to pamper your husband.

Focus on solid foods. As delicious as cereals and porridges are, they tend to be messy and not ideal for consumption in bed

Method 6 of 16: Buy him gifts when he's on the street

Make Your Husband Happy Step 6

Step 1. If you're shopping and you come across something your husband would like, buy it

Surprise gifts are always welcome and will brighten his day for sure.

Gifts don't have to be expensive or huge. A candy, a cap, a T-shirt or even a pair of socks are enough to show you care

Method 7 of 16: Be a good listener listener

Make Your Husband Happy Step 7

Step 1. We are surrounded by distractions competing for our attention on a daily basis

However, when your husband has something to tell you, give him your full attention. Think about how you would like to be heard when you speak and do the same. Set an example to lead a happier and healthier life as a couple.

  • Turn off the TV, put away your cell phone, and look him in the eye as you talk. Ask questions to show you're listening and if possible add something to the conversation.
  • For example, you could say things like "This is interesting. Tell me more?" or "I bet this situation was kind of uncomfortable, right?"

Method 8 of 16: Greet him and say goodbye to your husband

Make Your Husband Happy Step 8

Step 1. It may sound silly, but compliments can make a considerable difference

So you make it clear that you love spending time with your husband and make him feel excited to see you again.

  • When you get home from work, greet your husband cheerfully with a big kiss!
  • When one of you is leaving the house, hug him and say that you are looking forward to seeing him again.

Method 9 of 16: Make weekly appointments

Make Your Husband Happy Step 9

Step 1. It's very easy to get lost in the rut because of work, kids, and other responsibilities

Still, a romantic evening can help reinforce the connection as a couple and keep the relationship together as a couple, not partners in running a home.

  • Try to arrange at least one weekly meeting, either to go out to dinner or at home, but away from the children. You need a little time to yourself.
  • You can take turns choosing your date activities so that one of you is not bogged down with responsibility.

Method 10 of 16: Try new things together

Make Your Husband Happy Step 10

Step 1. Trying out different activities is always fun, especially with your husband

Think of things you've never done (alone or apart) and plan to put those things into practice.

  • How about going jet skiing, wine tasting, diving or horse riding?
  • Maybe you can find a new activity that you can do together often?
  • Try to incorporate these new activities into your date nights.

Method 11 of 16: Praise your husband often

Make Your Husband Happy Step 11

Step 1. Men usually don't get much praise, which makes them more reminiscent of the praise they receive

If your husband ever looks better or does something nice for you, praise him to let you know you're thinking about him. If you want, praise him for no apparent reason too, just "why"!

A simple "You look good today, love" can help boost his confidence

Method 12 of 16: Take on his chores if he's having a bad day

Make Your Husband Happy Step 12

Step 1. Everyone has some bad days in their lives, and it's normal for us to get moodier at those times

To help your husband feel better, take on some of his responsibilities if you can. Obviously, this shouldn't happen every day, but it can help to see in a while.

  • If he usually prepares dinner or folds laundry, do it for him to take some weight off his shoulders.
  • That way, when you're having a bad day too, you can ask him to take over the chores for the day. In the end, both win!

Method 13 of 16: Support your husband to try new things

Make Your Husband Happy Step 13

Step 1. You may notice changes and growth in your husband as time goes on

If you see that he is interested in a new hobby or career path, make it clear that you support him and that you will be there for him, no matter what.

  • You can show interest in his new hobby or job by asking questions and listening carefully whenever he talks about the new thing.
  • Not having your partner's support can make it difficult to try new things. So be around and support your partner in his endeavors.
  • If he's trying something new that he's also interested in, see if he can participate too.

Method 14 of 16: Discuss the issues directly

Make Your Husband Happy Step 14

Step 1. Good communication is essential in any relationship, but it is even more important in romantic relationships

If you have a problem, sit down with your husband to talk; as daunting as it is to discuss these issues, the ideal is to face the problem head on.

  • For example: "Hi love, can we talk? I wanted to talk to you about keeping the house clean during the week."
  • Speak in first person singular: "When the house gets dirty, I get stressed out. Can we work on this together?"

Method 15 of 16: Solve problems together

Make Your Husband Happy Step 15

Step 1. Every couple argues from time to time, and this is natural, but it is important to work on solving problems together

However, if all the discussions have seen a competition of who shouts the most, perhaps your problems are not being effectively addressed.

  • Look at the toughest problems with the "we vs. the problems" mentality, not "you vs. your husband" mentality.
  • For example, let's say you feel like you're doing all the household chores on your own. Tell your husband how you're feeling, "I think I'm taking on more responsibilities around the house. Could you help me put together a task board so we can share everything more evenly?"

Method 16 of 16: Remember to make time for yourself

Make Your Husband Happy Step 16

Step 1. To be a good partner, you need to take care of your own needs

Eat well, take care of hygiene, practice physical activities frequently and maintain a positive attitude in general. If you're happy, your husband will be too, believe me!

Also, some time alone will be beneficial for both of you


  • You are the one who knows your partner best and you should know what he likes best.
  • If your husband is unhappy, know that it may have nothing to do with you. He may simply be worn out by work and life's responsibilities. Ask what's wrong!
