Father’s day is just a few days away and who says you can’t surprise your husband on his special day? Most marriages fail when you stop courting each other and don’t keep the flame burning. As a wife, we tend to neglect our responsibilities because we are so busy taking care of our children and our home. Many times we also forget to take care of our husband and make sure his needs are met. But it’s never too late!
When was the last time you had a date night with your partner? Between the house chores, mommy duties and long hours at work, it might be hard to squeeze in an hour of bonding time with your husband. He has his own busy time too. We want you to also enjoy aromatherapy with your partner on his special day. Make it a habit of pausing your tasks once in awhile and connecting with your husband. You can show simple gestures of love by trying some of these heartfelt suggestions. While preparing his clothes for work, write a love note and insert it in his pocket. You can prepare him his favorite coffee and add a sticky note with a sweet message. You can even surprise him at the office during his lunch break by bringing him his favorite food. These are just some sweet examples of showing how much you love him and you can get even more creative.
