How to Show Your Lady You Care on National Wife Appreciation Day

Sept. 17 is National Wife Appreciation Day! You love your wife every single day, but this day is a nice occasion to show her a little extra love. Here are a few ideas to get the gears turning and help you think of ways to show the most important woman in your life how much she means to you:

Write Her a Love Letter

If you're not the type to usually pen a romantic note, it will mean even more. Reminisce over some of your favorite memories together and include some hopes and dreams for your future.

Take Her on a Spontaneous Date Night

Even if it's too late for reservations at her favorite restaurant, you can up the romantic ante on takeout by lighting some candles, dimming the lights, and playing some Michael Bublé.

Give Her Jewelry

Buy her a stunning new piece of diamond jewelry, such as a necklace, a bracelet, or a pair of earrings. After all, diamonds are a girl's best friend, and she'll be stunned by your thoughtful gesture.

Involve Everyone in Her Life

Gather some notes from different people in her life who appreciate her, such as her coworkers, friends, or family members. It will make her feel showered by love—and not just from you!

Treat Her

Treat her to a night at the spa with a massage and pedicure while you clean the house. She deserves to kick back, relax, and then come home to a spotless house.

Have a Movie Night

Offer to watch her favorite movie together—no complaining allowed. What better day to watch a romantic comedy than National Wife Appreciation Day?

Give Her Flowers

Buy her a gorgeous bouquet of flowers. For the next week, every time she sees them, she'll smile and remember your kindhearted gift. Flowers instantly brighten up a room, and they'll be way more affordable now than on Valentine's Day!

Show You're Grateful

Make a "gratitude list" of all the reasons you're thankful for her. They can be big, such as the fact that she's the mother of your children, or small, such as how she makes you coffee every morning. Everyone wants to feel appreciated, especially for small things people don't typically notice.

Surprise Her

Surprise her with something she loves but wouldn't typically buy for herself, such as fancy lotion or high-end coffee. Little luxuries can make all the difference in her busy day, and she'll love that you pay attention to things she likes.

Use Social Media

Give her a shout-out on social media. Your acknowledgement might get some of your friends thinking about their wives, too!

Every day is a good one to show your wife how much you care, but on National Wife Appreciation Day, go that extra mile!
