Ways to Make Your Man Happy On A Budget
Can you really make your man feel satisfied, surprised, and loved this Valentine’s Day on a shoestring budget? Hard to believe, right? Well, not anymore. These ways to make your man happy need only some creativity or imagination, perhaps some skill, and huge amounts of thoughtfulness and love put into what you’re about to do. Are you ready to know these awesome ideas? Read on!
1. Watch movies for free
Check out the TV program schedule and there’s a good chance you’ll find dozens of romantic movies on Valentine’s Day. If you don’t have TV or cable, you can always sign up for Netflix. In case you don’t know, you can sign up for a free trial for 30 days without paying anything – yup, free! Tip: Tickle and cuddle with these comedies!
2. Play his favorite tracks
Get those vinyls out, lead him to the makeshift dance floor or stage, and sway to songs of Edith Piaf, Elvis Presley, or the Platters. Or you can sign up for free on Spotify, stream them to your TV (or turn your laptop’s sound to full volume), and dance!
3. Take him to the park
While you may never have the secret garden in Notting Hill, you’ll always have the park that costs nothing. Grab a book and lie on his lap a la Julia Roberts, walk around, follow trails, read a book to each other, enjoy a homemade meal, people watch, or just be with each other.
If you have a pickup truck, take out a mattress, put it at the back, bring some blankets, and wait for the sky to light up with millions of magnificent stars. While you’re at it, tell him how he’s the brightest of them all with a handwritten love letter.
5. Cook the best meal
“The best way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.” Cliche, but it works EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. And you don’t even have to be Gordon Ramsay’s apprentice to cook your best meal. Here are easy recipes that take less than 30 minutes to make.
6. Play his favorite game
One of the best ways to make a man happy is to give him a nice challenge. Play his favorite game whether it’s Jenga or Monopoly or something more sweat-producing like, perhaps, basketball. Better yet, use this time as an opportunity to get close to him as much as possible. Let him teach you. 🙂
7. Have amazing sex
Girl, it’s Valentine’s Day. If there’s one day of the year you have to bring the sexiest lingerie out, this is it. It’s time to make Anastasia Steele your alter ego. Give him the most mind-blowing sex. Need some, er, help? Then you better read this.
8. Plan a picnic
Let your man take a break from work. Rather than making his meals at home call him and get him out for a simple but lovely picnic.
9. Get on with the morning run
Start the day with releasing happy hormones. Move your body, shake the sleepiness away, and run with him. If he doesn’t, well, invite him. Running ain’t your thing? Still, it’s fine. You can always take a walk. Either way, you’ll get more time to talk about your plans for the day or basically anything.
10. Watch the sunset at the beach
Do you live near the beach? Then perfect! Pick up your guy from his office and before you head home, pass by the beach. Enjoy the breeze, sip your DIY mocktails, and watch the day go by while holding hands. Isn’t that just dreamy?
11. Give him a present made by your own hands
Please don’t ever think it’s mandatory to give your loved one a present on Valentine’s Day. In fact, more often than not, service is far more special than chocolates and flowers (at least for me). But if you insist, then check out these DIY gifts you can do. Many of the things you need are more likely around your home, so you still end up not spending anything.
12. Wake him up to breakfast in bed
Perhaps he’s not just telling you, but he also feels frustrated waking up to the sound of an annoying alarm clock. So how about changing things a bit with a whiff of pancakes or the aroma of coffee?
DIYs are always one of the best ways to make your man happy. They make them feel special! Here are more gift ideas that require so little time:
With these ways to make your man happy, who says you need a lot of money? It’s all about love, ladies. 🙂 Do anything with lots of it and you’ll always make Valentine’s and any day of the year special, intimate, and memorable.
