Your wife is the most incredible woman that you know. She is talented, confident, beautiful, and funny. She’s the woman of your dreams and she means absolutely everything to you. However, sometimes you may forget to voice those thoughts. So, don’t forget to tell her the next time you think those jeans look great on her, or how much you appreciate her smarts and hard work. Words of affirmation will go a long way in letting your wife know how much you love her. So try one of these six compliments today and watch your wife melt inside (even if she tries not to show it).
1.You have a gift to _________________________!
We know, your wife has an incredible amount of gifts and talents! She does so many things well. Think of how she notices when someone is having a rough day, and takes the time to talk to them. Think how she nailed that presentation at work that doubled her division’s funding. In many capacities – in and out of the home – her gifts and abilities are a blessing to others. So recognize her. Recognize all she does and tell her how proud you are of her accomplishments. It will make her feel like a million bucks.
2. You look AMAZING!
Every woman appreciates knowing that she looks incredible. When it comes from you (the most important person in her life and the only one whose thoughts really matter to her), it means a lot! It means that much more when it’s unsolicited. So, the next time you see your wife, take a good long look at her, and then tell her she looks amazing. Or beautiful. Or stunning. Because she does.
3.You’re incredible in every way!
Your wife really is your “everything.” She completes you, inspires you, loves you, forgives you, laughs with you (and at you), teases you, teaches you, motivates you, adores you and respects you. So take a moment, regularly, to let her know that she is incredible in every way! Write a note with lotion on the bathroom mirror. Leave a sticky note on her pillow. Or just take her by the hand and tell her how much she means to you, face to face. Then, kiss her, of course!
4.You smell delicious!
Your wife has a handful of delightful-smelling perfumes, lotions, body sprays, hair products, and shower gels that make her smell amazing! Like the you-notice-every-time-she-walks-into-a-room amazing. If you love the way her hair smells, tell her. When she cuddles up to you on the couch, whisper “You smell delicious.” She’ll take note to always spray on that same perfume whenever she wants to be close to you.
5. I love your laugh!
Oh, her laugh. It gets you every time. Even if it is a little high-pitched, it’s still beautiful to you. You love watching her enjoy a deep belly laugh too – especially when it’s over one of your jokes (that probably no one else would find funny!). You love the expression on her face when she laughs, and how laughter brings out the flirtatious side in her. So, tell her you love her laugh – and then poke her. And watch her try and stifle that giggle as she tries to poke you back, beginning a flirt fest.
6.You’re my best friend!
When husbands and wives are best friends, it creates an emotional intimacy that can’t be beat. Your wife needs to know that you consider her to be your very best friend. Your go-to person when you feel happy, sad, elated, discouraged, or stressed. When you express your feelings about about the friendship you share, she will feel instantly connected to you, and that will pay big dividends towards a healthy and happy marriage!
