Being in a relationship is more than just saying you have a girlfriend. There’s a lot of work and effort that goes into making someone else happy and that work never ends. You have to always be trying to make things better with the one you love even if you think they’re perfect already.
Which means you’ll need to do sweet things all the time. Both people in a relationship need to be making an effort in one way or another. Your girlfriend will likely want you to do sweet things that show you much she means to you. However, you want to make sure they’re things she’ll actually like and not just things you THINK she’ll enjoy.
There are many different ways to go about this. Firstly, you have to know your girlfriend really well. You have to know what makes her happy and what things she thinks are cheesy and boring. If you’re not the creative type and aren’t sure what to do, these 35 sweetest things to do with your girlfriend can help.
- Surprise her with a night out.
Girls love when their men take control. Your girlfriend is just waiting for you to tell her to put on something nice and go with you somewhere. It’s really sweet and she’ll love your sense of control in the matter. All girls want to be surprised with a fun night out.
- Do her chores so she can relax.
Your girlfriend is going to have times when she’s really stressed. It may be work related, friend related, or she may even just be having issues with her family. Your job is to ease those times by doing her chores so she can relax. take it upon yourself to clean the house and tidy up so she can come home and relax.
- Draw her a bubble bath with candles and scented oils.
I don’t know any girl who would turn down a delicious smelling bath. If you really want to do something sweet for her that will make her smile and love you more, then start a bath for her with some really yummy smelling bubble bath. Bonus points if you light some candles and even pour her a glass of wine.
- Give her a deep massage.
Everyone has stress. And that stress can sometimes pile up in a person’s back and make them tense and uncomfortable. What better way to show your woman you care about her than giving her a deep massage? Tell her to lay down, and get to work. You can even take it a step further by getting scented oils that can help relax her further.
- Bring her lunch to work for her.
Is your girl someone who works at a place she has to bring her own lunch? Instead of making her eat something cold that she packed last minute, cook her up something nice and bring it to her. You can even just order some hot food to be delivered. It’s a really sweet sentiment she’ll love.
- Start her car for her on a cold morning.
If you live somewhere that’s really cold, you can easily do this and make her whole day. No one wants to go out into the cold and then be forced to sit in a freezing cold car on the way to work. This is really easy for you to do. Just head on out and start it ten minutes before she leaves. That way, it’s nice and warm for her and she’ll be so grateful.
- Encourage her to pursue her dreams.
Many people never go after their dreams because they just don’t have support. They feel like they’ll never be able to accomplish them and your girlfriend is no different. No matter what her goals and dreams are, you have to help her achieve them. You’re there to support and give her hope that it’s possible. It’s a very sweet way to make her feel loved.
- Bring home her favorite candies.
Do you know what your girl loves to snack on any time of day? Good. Then you know exactly what to grab on your way over to her place. Picking out a candy she loves is something that’s so simple most people don’t even think about it. But you can believe just how much she’ll love it. Do this every once in a while and she’ll always be happy.
- Make a blanket fort and have a movie night.
Instead of planning a special night out, opt to stay indoors if you’re running low on money. You can make a big blanket fort, get a few of her favorite movies, and set up a snack tray. Then invite her over and surprise her with the fun. She’ll not only be really excited you did all of that for her, but the two of you will have a great time together.
- Play silly games together.
Who said you have to act like adults all the time? Sometimes, all your girlfriend needs after a rough day is for you to have fun with her. Set up a scavenger hunt or a board game tournament for just the two of you. Have a great night laughing together and enjoying yourselves.
- Relive your first date together.
Sometimes that’s really romantic and any girl will love is if you recreate the first date you two ever had. When she’s feeling down or you just feel like doing something nice for her, this is perfect. You can even wear the same outfit and see if she catches on to the trend. Then you can tell her just how much you loved that night because it changed your life.
- Write her a love note.
Love notes are ridiculously underrated. Many people think they’re far too cheesy and girls think they’re boring. The truth is, women would LOVE to receive a heartfelt love letter from their boyfriends. Write down your feelings about her and just be honest. If you let your words be true, she’ll feel them and it’ll be the sweetest thing you can do.
- Send her on a girl’s weekend all on you.
If you have some extra money to play with, set up a girl’s weekend for her and a friend. Book them a hotel room and set them up with a spa package all on you. Not only is this very sweet, but it’s completely selfless because it’s all for her.
- Get crafty for her.
If your girl is a fan of homemade gifts, then give her some! If you can paint, then make her something special. If you’re good with beads and string, then make her a necklace or bracelet. Even if you’re not good at those things, give them a shot. She’ll love the effort.
- Get her flowers.
Every girl loves flowers. No matter what she says, she loves them. You don’t have to do this often. Just get her a small bouquet or even just a single rose every once in a while to show her how much you care. The small gesture will mean a lot.
- Cuddle her in the morning.
One of the sweetest things you can do is just pull her into you in the morning. There’s something about starting the day in the warm embrace of someone you love that really makes a huge difference. Not only is it really sweet and cozy, she’ll feel the love you have for her all throughout the day.
- Do the little things.
There are hundreds of little things you can do to make her day. You can pour her bowl of cereal, bring her coffee in bed, and even gather her belongings before she leaves. These small things may seem insignificant, but they can make a huge difference in how she cares for you. Don’t forget to do the small things.
- Make a scrapbook for her.
Do you have a bunch of really cute pictures of the two of you? Then gather them up and make a little scrapbook. Not only is this a really sweet sentiment, but she’ll realize how much effort you put into it. When it comes to your girlfriend, knowing you’re trying is all that counts.
- Tell her how much she means to you.
Your words can be very powerful. Don’t just do nice things for her, you can tell her how you feel, too. Bringing her in close and whispering something sweet and honest in her ear can do more for you than buying her a thousand roses.
- Tell her how great she looks when she’s done something new.
Your girlfriend will do a lot of different things with her hair and makeup while she’s with you. We girls have a habit of switching things up sometimes in order to see what you like best. When she tries something new, don’t make her feel insecure about it. Instead, tell her how great she looks.
- Kiss her randomly.
Kissing her before you leave for work or before bed is expected. It’s normal. The times that she wants to be kissed are the times when she least expects it. If she’s in the middle of a passionate story and she look so adorable you can’t stand it, pull her in for a long kiss and then let her continue. Surprise kisses are always the sweetest of kisses.
- Hold her hand whenever you can.
There’s something really cute and special about your man holding your hand whenever he can. When you’re walking into the restaurant, when you’re just sitting together on the couch, when you’re eating dinner together at home. Those times may not seem like the right times to hold hands, but you’ll see how happy she is when you do.
- Support her giving up bad habits.
Everyone has a bad habit they wish they could kick. Do your girl a favor and join her in whatever she’s doing. If she’s giving up junk food for a month, commit with her – and actually do it. If you do things that are important to her with her, she’ll see how much you really care and it’s really sweet.
- Listen to what she has to say.
Many guys will nod along with their girlfriend’s ramblings but never actually take in her words. You should definitely ACTUALLY listen to her when she speaks. She may be telling you something really important to her and you’ll never know if you ignore her. It’s really sweet when you’re actively listening to her life.
- Be active with her family and friends.
All girls want a man who is active in their personal lives. They don’t want a life with you completely separate from their friends and family. So be actively participating in that part of her life. Even if you’re not a huge fan of her friends or family, if you care about her, you’ll care about them.
- Never forget an important day.
There will be many times in your relationship where you have to remember important days. She’ll have work events, birthdays, anniversaries, and more. If you make sure to remember those days and write them down, it’ll be really sweet.
- Forgive her for silly things.
She’s going to make mistakes – just like you will. It’s only natural for people to do so. The point I’m making is that you need to forgive her for the little things and let them go. Don’t hold onto things forever and bring them up over and over again. She wouldn’t do that toy you, so don’t do it to her.
- Ask her how she’s feeling in the relationship.
You may be really happy in the relationship and completely oblivious to her concerns. So make sure to talk about it. Ask her if she’s happy and if she’s content in the relationship or if she has any concerns. This opens communication and shows her you’re in it to make her happy.
- Appreciate the things she does for you.
Don’t let her do a single nice thing without saying thank you and appreciating it. If she’s putting in an effort to make you happy, you have to acknowledge it and even reciprocate it. Don’t forget this.
- Bring something home for her after “guys night”.
If you have a guy’s night out, don’t forget about your girl. If she’s at home and isn’t doing anything for dinner, bring her home a hot meal or even a dessert. Let her know you’re thinking about her even when you’re out with the guys. It’s a really sweet thing to do.
- Let her have the space she needs.
Girls need space to get stuff done sometimes. We need to do our hair and makeup and nails and look good for our men. We even just like to have alone time to unwind and you need to give that space to your girlfriend. If she expresses a need to just be home alone, then let her.
- Watch annoying shows with her.
You may not like all of the shoes she watches and that’s okay. She’s not expecting you to. However, if you sit and watch them with her anyways, she’ll be beyond happy. It shows that even if you two don’t have everything in common, you’re still willing to see what she likes. And that’s one of the sweetest things you can do with your girlfriend.
- Let her pick where she wants to go and what she wants to do – and do it.
Let her make the plans for once. Don’t take charge and make things all about what you want to do. Give her the reigns and allow her to take control – and do whatever she says. If she wants to go somewhere you don’t like but she loves, do it. Allowing her to do something she loves with the person she loves – even if you’re not a fan of it – is really sweet and she’ll appreciate it immensely.
- Offer help even when she doesn’t ask for her.
Your girlfriend may be a proud person. She may not want to ask for help but sometimes, she really needs it. If you see her struggling with something and she refuses to ask for help, jump in anyways. Show her you can be of assistance and you can see when she’s having troubles.
- Love her every day and show it.
This may see really obvious, but you’d be surprised how often it’s forgotten. You need to really love her every day and make an effort to show it. No matter what you do with your girlfriend, it should make her happy and make her feel as though you can’t get enough of her. Doing this is the sweetest.
A happy and healthy relationship requires constant effort from both parties. Don’t let your girl do all of the work while you sit there and reap all the rewards. Doing some of these 25 sweetest things to do with your girlfriend will ensure a happy relationship.
