Believe it or not, girls want their boyfriends to do cute things for them.
These are some of the cute things to do for your girlfriend.
A lot of guys think that big, romantic gestures are all a girl wants to see.
While those can definitely be a nice surprise when you do them right, to women, it’s the little things you do that add up to show her how much you really care.
So… here are 19 cute and sweet things to do for your girlfriend to let her know how special she is to you.
#1 Cook Her Something
Want to show her that you care, that you know what she likes, and show off your skills? Cooking her a meal she’s going to love is a great way to do all three at the same time.
Whether it’s breakfast in bed, a fun dinner, or some homemade cookies, getting into the kitchen for her will quickly show how much you like taking care of her.
#2 Call or Text Her, Spontaneously
Take a moment to surprise her with a call or text just to say hey. Tell her you’re thinking about her.
This simple act can easily brighten up the middle of a long day at work or in class. She’ll likely be pretty happy knowing that you’re thinking about her enough to reach out.
#3 Do Some of Her Chores
One of the sweetest and most thoughtful things you can do for your girl, is to take care of stuff around the house, that she hasn’t gotten around to doing. Whether it’s because she may not like to clean or she just might not have the time.
Doing the dishes, a load of laundry, or sweeping up is an opportunity to show her that you care. It’ll instantly make her life a little bit easier.
#4 Go Back to The Basics: Take Her on a Date
This one may seem obvious, but if you’re looking to do something sweet for your girl, taking her out on a fun date is probably a great place to start.
Whether it’s just dinner and a movie, a fancy date, or a long day trip to a nearby destination. Taking her out and showing her a good time is an easy way to make her happy.
#5 Comment When You Notice She Changes Something
If you want to compliment how your girlfriend looks, that doesn’t sound like all the others. Compliment her when you notice she’s deliberately changed something about herself.
By letting her know she looks good after she recently changed her hair or got a new dress, not only will you be acknowledging how great she looks, but you’re also showing her you pay enough attention to notice that she’s has changed something.
#6 Give Her a Real Compliment
While it’s great to be in the habit of letting your girl know she looks good if you want to show her that you really think the world of her, try to remember to give her compliments about all the other things that make her great.
What exactly do I mean by this?
Maybe she’s reached a milestone that she’s proud of, or maybe she’s just really smart. Whatever it is, your compliments should not be limited to how she looks. So next time you notice something great about her judgment or her intellect let her know!.
#7 Brag About Her
You can even take complimenting her a step further, by bragging about her to others.
Your girlfriend might be humble about her talents or accomplishments, but that doesn’t mean you have to be!
So if she’s done something that impressed you, don’t keep it a secret. Let everyone know how highly you think of her and talk her up!
#8 Write Her a Letter
One of the most classic and romantic things to do for your girlfriend is taking the time to handwrite her a letter. Actually writing a letter with pen and paper is intimate and personal.
Not only will it give you an opportunity to tell her how you feel in a really sweet way, but the effort it takes to organize and handwrite a letter that she can hold and keep will also show her that you care enough to communicate with her in a really personal way.
#9 Flirt with Her in Public
As you’re starting to see, it’s hugely important to let your girl know how much you like her.
And one of the best ways to do that is to playfully flirt with her in public.
Flirting is something that happens a lot at the beginning of a relationship, but as time goes on, a lot of guys feel that they’re “shown her all their moves”, and do it much less frequently.
But it’s still something almost all women love from their boyfriend. So if it seems like you haven’t flirted with her as much as you once did, try it out. Let her know she’s still as special as the day she first caught your eye.
#10 Dance with Her
Probably one of the sweetest things you can do for your girlfriend is to spontaneously take her hand and start slow dancing with her.
It only takes a minute or two, and it’s incredibly romantic. So try it out the next time she’s in the kitchen, or doing stuff around the house. And to make it more romantic, do it while she’s telling you about her long day.
#11 Send Her Job Opportunities
If you’ve ever had to do it, you know that looking for jobs can be pretty stressful.
So if she’s looking for a new job, a nice way you can let her know you’re looking out for her is to help her by sending her job postings of opportunities you think she’d be a good fit for.
Not only will she see that you understand her goals and abilities, which is sweet all by itself, but she’ll also know for sure that you care about her and her future.
#12 Think of the Thing you DON’T Want to do… and Suggest Doing It
Whether it’s swing dancing, dressing up for a costume party or maybe going to a play, for a lot of guys, there is probably something that their girlfriends are dying to do. But that they really don’t want to do.
So if you really want to show her you can put her happiness first, think of the thing you know she wants to do, and suggest doing it.
Not only will she be surprised by your suggestion, but she’ll also be elated to see you set aside your reservations in order to make her happy.
#13 Make Her Coffee Ahead of a Long Day
One hugely romantic (and helpful) thing you can do for your girlfriend, is to make her a cup of coffee ahead of a long day.
Some mornings are crazier than others and sometimes. She may not even have the time to make herself that all-important cup of coffee. So if you see that happening, you can step in with a quick cup of coffee to send her off with.
Not only will she leave ready for the day ahead, but also with every sip of the warm coffee you made for her, she’ll be reminded of you.
Fridge After a Tough Day Just like it’s nice to make her coffee ahead of a long day, leaving her something to enjoy when she gets home from a tough day is a simple but sweet thing to do.
Maybe it’s a piece of tiramisu or a cupcake from her favorite bakery. Whatever it is that she likes, opening the fridge after a long day and seeing it waiting for her will definitely make her smile.
#14 Surprise Her with Something That You Remember She Likes
Surprisingly, a lot of guys don’t make the effort to remember the stuff that their girlfriends say.
But for the guys who do, it can be a hugely romantic gesture in his girlfriend’s eyes. Maybe she once said something was cute in a store but didn’t buy it. Or maybe she mentioned how she wanted to try out a new cafe or see a new movie.
Whatever it was, remembering the things your girlfriend passively mentions and acting on them is probably one of the sweetest things you can do for your girlfriend.
#15 If There’s a Show You Both Like, Don’t Watch It Without Her
You may think, “So what if we don’t get to watch every episode of a TV show together? …I mean, last week’s episode ended on a pretty big cliffhanger.”
Now, while it’s obviously not a big deal to watch one episode without her choosing to wait for your girlfriend, is not only a super considerate, sweet thing to do for her, but it also gives you a consistent fun thing to do together every week.
#16 Treat Her Like a Princess
Whether or not they admit it, every girl likes being treated like a princess.
So do specific little things like opening the door for her, carrying her bag, or getting her flowers. It shows her how important she is to you, and is always a really sweet way to surprise her.
#17 Shake Up the Routine
You obviously don’t want your girlfriend to be bored in your relationship. If things seem like they’ve gotten a little routine, change them up by adding some variety to your typical schedule.
Take a day off to play hooky together, Have a longer-than-usual lunch, or doing go something instead of your standard happy hour.
This fun thing to do will add some flavor to your typical week and will help break the monotony.
#18 When You Go to the Store, Pick Up Something For Her
Not only does grabbing something for her clearly show her that you’re thinking about her, but it also shows her that you know what she likes and you care about her enough to get it.
Maybe it’s something small she needs like her shampoo, maybe it’s her favorite doughnut, or maybe you’re about to go big and get her that espresso machine she’s been wanting.
Whatever it is, surprising her with something she needs or wants, is a sweet, romantic thing to do for your girlfriend and one that she’ll definitely appreciate.
These are some of the incredibly cute things to do for your girlfriend.
