With Valentine’s Day approaching, many of us are focused on how we can love our husband in big ways: buy him a new watch, cook him a gourmet dinner, go all out and spend the big bucks.

This year, I want to be more intentional, and one of the ways I want to be intentional is in loving my husband.

If you’re like me, you might need theseΒ 21 ways to intentionally love your husband every day.

  1. I love, love, love the thank you jar idea! Going to start that today. Lol I also loved reading this because my husband’s name is also Caleb, so it was like a little personalized list of things to do for him. πŸ™‚

  2. Thank you for this, sweet friend.
    I agree that it is so important to love our husbands well year-round, but I don’t always do the best job with that.
    I am always getting on to my hubby about how he needs to clean out his car. I could totally do that for him! Thanks for the ideas!

  3. It’s really all about being intentional! It’s so easy to get caught up in the day-to-day hustle & bustle, so we should all take the chance to do at least one nice thing for each other every day. It sounds so simple, but it can easily fall to the wayside!

  4. These are some great ways to intentionally show love each day! My goal for February is to leave my hubs a note each week to encourage him. He’s definitely a ‘words guy’, and I know he appreciates love notes. Thanks for sharing!

  5. These are fantastic tips, Abbey! My husband and I lead the couples ministry at our church, and we are always encouraging couples to date and show small gestures of love. I am going to print your ideas to hand out!

  6. Yes- praying for your husband is so important! Thanks for all of these great ideas. Last week I cleaned and vacuumed by husbands car and he was so excited about it πŸ™‚

  7. It definitely strengthens a relationship by doing small acts of kindness and love for one another. I know I feel most loved when my boyfriend does little things he knows I want without me having to even say anything. πŸ™‚ Especially when it come to gifts–small gifts that show he’s been listening are so much more meaningful than big flashy gifts. & I know he likes it when I do these things for him! I love the idea of leaving notes for him to find during work. I think I’m going to start doing that one. It’s super cute!

  8. I’ve been with my husband for nearly 27 years and I can say it is the little things that make a big difference in the day to day. Sometimes if it is real cold or has snowed I will get out of bed early and go start his truck or clean the snow off while he is getting ready for work. He is not a morning person, so it makes the start to his day a little better and since he knows I’m not really a morning person either he appreciates the act.

  9. I LOVE these tips! Thank you for including mine and even sharing tidbits of how you do this with your husband for each one! I love how intentional you both are in your relationship with each other!
