Between a full-time job and children, sometimes it’s easy to forget to show your husband how much you love him. But sometimes all you need is a little creativity–and you don’t need to go all out. A simple Post-It note on a wall that says “I Love You,” can immediately show your man how much you care.
Here are 5 cute ways to remind your husband you love him.
Leave Him a Note 1 of 5
I love leaving my husband little post-it notes that say sweet nothings like "I Love You." It's something very simple, but thoughtful. Other times, I'll write him a note and put it in his work bag before he leaves to work.

Recreate your First Date 2 of 5
Recreate the first date you guys ever had--down to a T if you can swing it. Perhaps go to the same restaurant, order the same food (you get the point). This is something I've been meaning to do with my husband. You'll both get a kick out of this blast from the past.

Give him your Undivided Attention 3 of 5
My husband always nags me that I'm constantly checking emails and on my phone while we're out ( I can't help myself). Next time you're together, try leaving your phone in your purse--and don't take it out! Give him your undivided attention and use the time you would be checking your emails to ask him about his day.
Give him a Massage 4 of 5
After a long day at work, offer to give him a massage. Sometimes, even a simple shoulder rub is all he needs. He'll definitely feel loved and in bliss after this one.

Mirror Messages 5 of 5
Mirror messages are one of my favorites. Whenever my husband is getting ready in the morning, I'll quietly pop in the bathroom and leave a message on the mirror.
