When it comes to your relationship, you always want your other half to feel special. If you have been together for a long while it is easy to become comfortable together and to not do the same as you once did. You might find that you start to take each other for granted and you don’t put in the same effort as before as you are so comfortable with each other. While this is a nice time in your relationship, it can also cause your partner to not feel as special and to feel neglected. In order to get things back on track, you don’t need to necessarily do big, expensive gestures, sometimes the small things matter just as much and can make as much of, if not more, of an impact. Here we take a look at some great ways that you can make your other half feel special in your relationship.

Focus on doing little things for them

In your relationship, you might think it’s the big gestures that need doing, however, often it's the little things that really make a difference. Something as simple as bringing a cup of tea to them every morning, or a glass of wine after work if they’ve had a tough day without them having to ask can make them feel seen and appreciated. You could offer to give them a massage or cook dinner so it’s ready for when they get in from a long day. These aren’t big gestures or things that even cost anything but you can be surprised by what a big difference they can really make to your other half.

Surprise gestures go a long way

As well as the little things, a surprise gesture is always going to go down well. You could arrange a date night out somewhere to a nice restaurant, you could gift them some custom jewelry or you could arrange for a bouquet of flowers to be delivered to their work. These surprise things will all say you love them and make them feel special. Again, you don’t have to spend a lot but it can really make a difference to them and how their day is going.

Tell them something you love about them every day

As well as physical gestures, another way to make your other half feel special in your relationship is to tell them how much you love them every day. “I love you” is often said a lot at the start but over time can dwindle. Make a conscious effort to tell them every single day, at least once, that you love them. This could be when you wake up and before you go to sleep, as well as at random times during the day. You could also tell them something you love about them. From their wacky dress sense to their smile and the way it brightens up a room. This can help make your partner feel appreciated and help to boost their self esteem.

Always listen when they are talking to you and communicate well

Another thing that can go wrong in relationships is that communication barriers break down. If you find yourself squabbling over silly stuff or have something that bothers you, sit down and talk it out. If you find that you are having arguments and instead of talking it ends in shouting, take deep breaths, walk away from one another, and try again once you have calmed down. If you are shouting, no one is going to be listening to each other. Instead, wait until you are both ready to hear each other’s points and can have a sensible conversation. By airing out your grievances and what is bothering you, you will find that you are living much more peacefully and don’t fight as often or have little things that bother you.

These are just a few simple things that you can do in order to help make your other half feel special in your relationship. Too many people nowadays tend to run when things get tough in a relationship, yet often it’s just a case of needing communication and finding out what is lacking between you. Sometimes your other half may not realize there is a problem when you are feeling upset about something every day. By telling these issues, doing the little things that will make them smile, and always listening to them, you are sure to be a lot better in your time together.
