Everyone has a different love language. If you’ve taken the quiz to find out your partner’s love style, you may have noticed that there are many different ways to show you care. The best part about it is that there are many small ways to show your love that don’t cost a thing, don’t take much time, but can mean the entire world to your partner.

Small Gestures Can Mean Great Things

It’s often the little things in life that mean the most to us. Sometimes we overlook these small things that can make all the difference in our partner’s day. It happens to all of us. We rush out the door, late for work, or forget an important day or anniversary. We’re all human.

If you’re looking for love hacks that show you care, flip through the slideshow below.

Leave a Post-It in an Unexpected Spot

Leave your partner a mini love note somewhere unexpected. Somewhere they're sure to find it. Does your partner open the medicine cabinet every morning? Stick one on the outside. Do they have a spot where they hang their keys? Stick one there, so they see it on their way out the door in the morning. 

A little note that says "I love you," or "Have a great day today," can help your partner start their day off on a positive note, knowing that you care. They'll carry that good feeling with them throughout the day.

Bring Home a Small Treat

Maybe it's their favorite candy bar from the gas station around the corner, or a pint of their favorite ice cream. It doesn't have to be elaborate. Surprise your partner when you get home with something they love, and they'll know you were thinking about them on your drive home.

It's all about the thought, not about the material object.

Hold Their Hand When You're Watching TV

Just hanging out watching TV? Maybe you're not snuggled up, and that's okay. Reach out and hold your partner's hand, even if it's just for a minute. It's a small gesture, but it shows intimacy and offers physical connection, something every relationship needs. Something that seems so teeny tiny can warm your partner's heart.

Compliment Them

Sometimes, especially if you've been in a relationship for a while, we forget to keep complimenting our partners on little things like their new shoes or a haircut. You're not a horrible person, we all get caught in this pattern sometimes. 

Take a moment and verbalize something you like about your partner that day. "You look great in that shirt," or "I really admire how smart you are," are short and sweet phrases that take one second to say but can have long-lasting effects.

Do Something They've Been Meaning to Get to

Has your partner been meaning to hang that new painting for weeks now, but they're just too busy to get around to it? Maybe they've been talking about cleaning out the fridge or even buying new windshield wiper blades for their car.

Go ahead and do that thing. No matter how small the action is, it will show them that you listen and that you care.
