Looking for new and creative ways to show your spouse you care? You don’t have to save romance just for February 14 – make every day Valentine’s Day! Here are 25 ways to say, “I love you” all year long.

1. Take him breakfast in bed.

2. Leave notes of encouragement around the house or office where she’ll find them throughout the day.

3. Help him do chores he dreads, such as yard work.

4. Tell her how much you appreciate her – often and in front of others.

5. Hold hands.

6. Create a special dinner with all of her favorite foods.

7. Kidnap him from work and take him to his favorite restaurant or to the park for a picnic.

8. Pray for her every day.

9. Take time to listen – really listen.

10. Create a small scrapbook of your favorite memories together. Include a photo or two from each occasion, and write a few sentences about what you remember.

11. Write 25 reasons you love your mate on separate slips of paper. Put them in a pinata, and let him open it.

12. Each time you think of one criticism of your mate, offer four compliments instead.

13. Participate in one of his favorite things. Treat him to a hockey game or go golfing with him.

14. Leave a voice-mail message that he’ll get at work the next morning.

15. Budget for a weekend away at least twice a year.

16. Initiate a conversation about something other than the kids, work, or schedules. When you feel tempted to complain, don’t.

17. Take a ride together. Get in the car, put in a CD of music that brings back good memories, and talk.

18. Give her a manicure.

19. Have a warm towel ready when he gets out of the shower on a cold morning.

20. Create a personalized calendar for her. Write in date nights. Include encouraging notes on different days throughout the year.

21. Laugh together.

22. Play 20 questions. Learn new things about each other.

23. Tell him every day one reason you love him.

24. Have a hot bubble bath ready for her after a long day. Light candles and play her favorite CDs.

25. Do something new together – have fun making memories.

26. Watch a sporting event together at home, and kiss during the commercials.

27. Go to a thrift store and purchase some new outfits for each other (you pick for each other), and then either go out to dinner, walk in the park, or enjoy the sights of the city together.

28. Tell him something that you have learned about yourself that you are changing to be better for him. (Kelly Haines)
