You don’t need me to tell you this, but many guys don’t like Valentine’s Day. I think they are wrong, I think they ought to enjoy a chance to be romantic and do something special for their wives. However, most of them will not change.
I know many of you ladies do what to do something special for your hubby on Valentine’s Day. I am going to suggest two things that I think your husband will really appreciate and cherish and who knows, it may help him to not hate Valentine’s Day quite as much. And no, it is not about sex.
What He Would Love!
1) Pray for Him: Write in his card (or even make him one) that lets him know that you are going to be praying for him every day. He will love it! It is comforting and wonderful to know that your wife loves you enough to take the time to pray for you every day. You may want to make him a graphic like the one I made and print it out for him. (I make things like that for my wife for special events and I get them printed at Walmart or Walgreens, it costs less than a dollar and I put it in a simple frame.)
When you pray for him, pray for the things that will help him. Ask him what requests he has. Let him know that you are praying for the things that are important to him, not just that you are trying to change him into the perfect guy. Pray for him the way you want him to pray for you.
2) Be Happy With What He Gets You: There is nothing more discouraging for a husband than getting his wife something that he thinks she really will like and then when he gives it to her, she is disappointed. Other times she is not disappointed, but she is not enthusiastic either. Hey, he spent time getting your gift, sometimes he spent a lot of time, be excited, at least a big smile, a warm thank you, and a hug.
I know guys sometimes do get stupid gifts for their wives and I feel for you. (I think you get revenge on us at Father’s Day, but that is another story.) If you need to talk to him about his choice of gifts, do it a later time, right then be happy, even if you know you will never wear it, put it out, or use it. Thank him, the next day see if you can get the receipt from him and take it back, if not consider saving it for a “White Elephant Gift” or give it a Charity.
