Whether you want to impress your girlfriend, your mother’s having a hard day or your friend is going through a difficult situation, every girl deserves to have a smile put on her face. A few simple gestures could be the difference between her looking on the bright side or spending the evening tucking into a tub of Ben & Jerrys. So, if you want to look after the women in your life, here a few things you can do to make their days ten times better.
Treat Her to Breakfast
Waking up to breakfast in bed is the perfect way to start the day and your partner will be thrilled. Alternatively, all it takes is a cup of coffee to put a smile on your friend’s face. Why not treat her to a pastry while you’re at it? If you want to all out, make plans for a full English breakfast at a restaurant. No girl can say no to that.
The sweet scent, the radiant colours and the fact that they were picked out by someone else, is why every girl loves a bouquet of flowers. If you’re finding it difficult to choose, you can never go wrong with a dozen roses. Flowers can say anything, from I love you to I’m sorry and congratulations.
Plan a Movie Night
Movies are a great distraction from life. Why not treat your partner to a night at the movies? If you’re on a budget, plan a movie night at home and watch some of her favourite films, even if you hate them. If you’re friend needs a bit of cheering up, a girl’s night at the movies could be just the ticket. Treat her to her favourite snacks and she’ll love you forever.
Step Out of Your Comfort Zone
Sometimes it takes a grander gesture to make the woman in your life realise how much you appreciate them. Write her a song, write her a poem, make her a card or do something she knows isn’t in your list of skills. When it comes to this type of gesture, she’ll realize it’s the thought that counts. Making a fool of yourself can really win someone over.
When she returns home from work, she won’t be expecting to find a clean house, the dishes and washing done and a meal on the table. The greatest gestures are often the ones that are unexpected so think of little ways you can surprise her. She may not expect you to make her a cup of tea or put the kids to bed, but she’ll thank you for it when you do.
Putting a scrapbook of memories together takes time and effort, and it’s sure to make her smile, if not cry tears of joy. You could include holiday snaps, achievements, milestones and any other meaningful pictures that you know she would love to see and keep safe.
You don’t have to think hard when you want to make a woman smile, you just have to try.
