10 Small Love Gestures And Tips On How To Make A Relationship Work

Need to save a relationship before it’s too late? Carrying out these 10 small but powerful love gestures can help.

How do you know you’re still in a loving and strong relationship? Is it the grand gestures your partner makes? The trips abroad that he books without asking you? Or maybe it’s the thousands of dollars he spends on you each year? But what about the little things? What about the small gestures?

For some women, the fact that their partner makes them tea in the morning and drops some cinnamon and honey in there is what reassures them of his enduring love and commitment. That’s what real love is. For others, it’s the way he fluffs their pillows before bed. For others, it’s the way he runs them a hot bath after work.

Small gestures might not seem like a lot to other people, but to us they tell us everything we need to know. Small gestures speak a thousand words, like a gesture in a Rembrandt painting. They remind us of our partners commitment to us.

If your relationship is missing the small gestures, here are ten tips on how to make a relationship work.

Make Coffee In The Morning

If your partner is in a rush today, what better way to make sure their day gets off to the best possible start than by preparing their coffee for them?

They’ll totally appreciate it!

Even if you’ve got a lot to do today, get up that little bit earlier to prepare the coffee. Perhaps you could butter some toast, too. Otherwise, they might not even have the time to make their own coffee before heading out of the door. It’s a great way to say “I love you,” in the morning, and it frees up a bit of their time for a kiss.

Remember Your Manners

When was the last time you said “please” or “thanks”? Manners are a sign of respect. And surely the person you respect the most is your partner. So why wouldn’t you use your manners around them? It’s just common courtesy and the least they deserve. They might be small things, but they can take your relationship onto another level.

Doing Something You’ve Been Putting Off For So Long

If there is something your partner has been wanting you to do for literally the longest time, why not do it now?

Again, this is a seemingly small gesture to other people. But it’s a big deal to your partner, and will really mean a lot to them if you do it. Even if it’s something you don’t like and which will cause you a bit of effort to do it, just do it anyway. They’ve been waiting all this time, so do it with a smile on your face. Don’t complain. It can really strengthen your bonds.

And hey, maybe they’ll reciprocate and do something you’ve been wanting them to do for the longest time.

Buy Them A Gift For Their Achievements

This is another one of great tips on how to make a relationship work.

An achievement at work or in their personal life might seem like a small thing to them, but you know it really means something. As such, you’re going to celebrate appropriately by buying them a gift. Or maybe you could take them out for a meal.

Whatever you do, make sure that your partner knows you appreciate their victories. Let them know you appreciate their talents and their ability to make the world a better place in their own small way.

Take Their Side

If they’re embroiled in an argument on Facebook or elsewhere, show that you’ve got their back. Step in and take their side. Don’t let them go through this by themselves. It’s super important that they know their partner is with them on this.

Sending “How’s your day?” Texts

Sometimes, we get so caught up in our own lives at work that we forget to text our partner. A lot of the time, we just figure that we’ll talk to them when we get home. And that’s fine. But wouldn’t it be nice if you could ask them how they’re doing during the day?

Let’s face it, they might be having a really bad day. Hearing from you could be enough to put a smile on their face and raise their spirits. Tell them you miss them too, and that you can’t wait to see them tonight.

Step In When They’re Struggling

If your partner is having a bad day and you can clearly see that they’re struggling, step in and do their chores. Take care of their work for them. Run them a bath, make them tea and toast, and tell them to relax. You’ve got this.

Remind Them That They’re Safe With You

There’s probably not a person alive who doesn’t feel insecure about their relationship from time to time. And if they say they never do, they’re probably being naughty and not telling the truth.

We all have insecurities and worries about the future of our relationship. And this is why it’d be such an amazing small but big gesture if you were to remind your partner that they’re safe with you.

Let them know that they can always talk to you, and that you’re always here for them. Let them know you have a shelter for them, for whenever they feel emotionally broken.

Buy Something They Need

Men in particular are really bad at buying things that they need. They don’t mind splashing out on things they don’t need – but super awful when it comes to the necessary stuff! So even if you buy them three new pair of comfy socks to replace their ripped ones riddled with holes, they’ll be really grateful!

Compromise

This is another one of great tips on how to make a relationship work.

Do you rarely compromise? Always want everything entirely your own way? Perhaps now it’s time to start compromising.

A relationship is not just about you and your needs, it’s about them and theirs, too. And, no, you don’t always know best! (though most of the time you probably do)

Sometimes, you need to empathise with your partner, see things from their point of view, and accept a compromise. Give them what they want from time to time, and don’t complain about it. Give them a few inches. Don’t be so greedy with your own plans for how this relationship needs to be.

Say “I Love You”

Just say it. It doesn’t matter if they know you love them. Tell them again and again. These are three words that never get old.
