10 Incredibly Nice Things to Do For Himfrom: Maxx Family Life
There are a number of incredibly nice things you can do for the man in your life to let him know how much he means to you. Really thinking about his personality and hobbies and personalizing your gestures will demonstrate that you care about him. You'll surprise the man in your life with your thoughtful and tailored gestures.
One incredibly nice thing you could do for him is to make arrangement to have his car professionally detailed. Many men take pride in their car and enjoy spending their time to make sure it looks and runs its best. You can let him know you understand his fascination with his car by making the arrangements to have the car detailed. If you know he'll be out of town for a few days, try making the arrangements for that time so it'll be a surprise for him when he returns. If you're unable to do this in secret, go ahead and let him know about your plans. It's okay that it won't be a surprise because he will probably enjoy being involved in the process.
Another incredibly nice thing that you can do for the special man in your life is to take the responsibility of completing a chore around the house that he usually performs. For example if he usually takes care of mowing the lawn, plan to come home from work early one day to mow the lawn before he gets home. He will not only be excited to not have to take care of this chore but will also be excited you recognize the effort he puts forth into completing this chore.
Purchasing a gadget your man has his eye on is another nice thing to do for him. Many men enjoy all types of gadgets and gizmos and figuring out one that he's interested in and purchasing it for him will be a very welcomed gift. It will also show him you were paying attention while he was talking about this gadget and you understand how much it means to him. He'll appreciate that while it may not be something you would want for yourself, you realize it's something he'll enjoy.
Still another incredibly nice thing to do for him is to take control of plans for a date. Men are usually the ones who are in charge of planning and paying for dates so he'll be grateful for you making date arrangements for a night. Carefully plan out a fun date filled with activities he'll enjoy and don't rely on him to take care of any of the details. Make the arrangements, drive to the destination and pay for the date. The man in your life will feel pampered for the evening and will enjoy having the stress of date planning off his shoulders.
Surprising the man in your life by meeting him at work and taking him out to lunch or on a picnic is another incredibly nice thing you can do for him. He'll enjoy getting out of the office for awhile and having some extra time to spend with you. The element of surprise will let him know you're thinking of him. Also, having a break in his day where he can relax and enjoy your company will make the rest of the day seem to go by much more quickly for him.
Another incredibly nice thing you can do for the man in your life is to pick up a magazine or book relating to an interest he has while you're out shopping. Doing so will let him know you understand his interest and that you want him to have some time to enjoy thinking about his favorite hobby. It also shows that even while you were just out running a few errands you were thinking about him.
Learning about the man in your life's favorite sport is another nice thing to do for him. He may enjoy spending his weekends watching his favorite sports teams and, if you're not normally a fan of this sport, you'll surprise him by taking an active interest. Try doing some research on your own to learn a little more about his favorite sport and team and the next time he's watching a game, sit with him and ask pertinent questions. He'll be astonished at your knowledge and eager to teach you more.
Another incredibly nice thing to do for a man is to buy him flowers. Women receive flowers for special occasions and sometimes for no reason at all but men don't often receive flowers, so showing up with a bouquet for him will be a welcomed surprise. He'll appreciate the novelty of the gift and be delighted with the gesture.
If your taste in music differs from that of the man in your life, one incredibly nice thing you can do for him is to purchase tickets to see his favorite band in concert. While the music may not be your first choice, it's something he enjoys so give him a chance to indulge himself. He'll be excited to share his music with you and will be glad you're interested in hearing the music with him.
Finally another nice thing to do for a man is to learn to barbeque. Many men greatly enjoy barbequed foods and have even been known to brave freezing temperatures to enjoy a barbequed steak in the dead of winter. While many men love the chance to barbeque they would also appreciate the opportunity to enjoy a barbeque without having to do any of the work. Preparing a barbeque will let him know that you realize it's a meal he enjoys and that you appreciate the effort he usually puts forward to prepare this meal.
Doing something incredibly nice for a man doesn't have to be extravagant or complicated. Simple gestures that show you understand his thoughts and feelings are those that will be most appreciated. In surprising the man in your life with some of these examples or other applicable things you'll let him know how important he is to you.
