It’s easy to get caught up in the day-to-day minutia of life, but little thoughtful gestures can make a big difference in your relationship. I know that my partner and I are happier together when we both make an effort to elevate our relationship. And it doesn’t take much time or money—just a few little ways can elevate your relationship can go a long way in making your partner feel loved and appreciated. You might not even realize how many opportunities arise throughout everyday life to do something nice for your partner, like noticing small changes or giving each other space. The effort you put into being good partners is worth it when you see the effects it has on your relationship. If you’re looking for something new – here are some ideas to help you get started.


Do Little Thoughtful Acts

Little thoughtful acts are a great way to show your partner that you care. They don’t have to be big things, but they should be things that you know your partner will appreciate. For example, I do the cooking in our house so I also make Jeff lunch for work. So I write him little notes for his lunch box – often times it’s just a silly dad joke! But this small thing helps me feel connected with him and lets me express how much I love him. I just recently found out that he has saved all of the notes I’ve written for him.

I saw a tiktok where they have a dollar store bucket and just fill it with snacks and treats the other person would like.  They just take turns with filling it up – I thought that was so cute!!


Talk about the future

This year we are planning two dates a month – one inside the house and one outside the house. At home dates are perfect for talking about the future!

This is a simple one, but it’s so important! One of the easiest ways to stall in your relationship is by not having common goals or aspirations. We all want different things in life, and that’s okay—it’s good to have different interests and passions. But if you and your partner don’t spend time thinking about the future together (and how you can make it happen), then it can be easy for each other’s dreams to get lost in their own busy lives. You could want to travel around the world after work or find more time for hobbies. Talking about your hopes and dreams will help both of you become better versions of yourselves.


Give each other space

This seems counterintuitive, but giving each other space is a great way to show your partner that you respect them and their time. Jeff likes to play video games. I do not. So I make sure that I’m asking him if he feels like he’s gotten enough video game time. But It’s not personal—it’s just something everyone needs sometimes!


It’s easy to find the little things that make your partner happy and elevate your relationship.  Just by being mindful about each other and the small changes that occur over time. Always acting from a place of love and kindness toward one another!
