AW: It's the small things

First of all I wanted to send ((HUGS)) out to anyone who is needing them today.

Sometimes I forget how amazing my husband is and then all of a sudden it hits me like a ton of bricks! 
Last night when I got home from work he had brought home cupcakes from one of my favorite bakeries. That in and of itself is super thoughtful but in addition to this he stopped at the jewelers and had the diamond in my wedding ring tightened. I knew he was doing this as the shop is on his way home from work, but what I didn't know is that while he was there he decided to get me a pair of pearl earrings just because. I am so spoiled.
I'm looking to do a few small things for him just to say thank you and show him how much I appreciate all of his support. Question for all of you is, any ideas on what to do? I was thinking of making his favorite meal or buying his favorite beer. I need to work on doing things like this more often.
What do you do when you want to show your SO how much you love them?

  • Thanks for the ideas ladies!
    @RammerJammer I really like the idea of a card and notes in his briefcase. I'll have to add those to my list.

  • A recent small gift that made him weepy were the personalized collar stays from red envelope. There are a ton of coupon codes online. Each collar stay has a phrase that means something to us and he sees is every morning when getting dressed.
    Ready to take the road less traveled.

  • That is very sweet!  I have no good ideas, though...I'm good at the thoughtful stuff, but only for bigger things like Christmas and Birthdays - not in the normal, everyday stuff.  Then again, my husband does get extra excited when I make him lunch and surprise him with a BP&J and fruit snacks.

  • @Sigh202 That's a great idea. He wears dress shirts everyday to work so collar stays are a really awesome idea and something I never would have thought of. Thank you!
