With the season of love coming up, now is a great time to remind those who are important to you how much you care about them. Whether that be a significant other, a friend, or family member, here are four simple ways to show those around you that you love them.
During quarantine, we’ve all gone through a baking phase in which we’ve mastered one or more confectionary treats. My go-to is normally banana bread muffins, but this can be anything from brownies to cookies to seven-layer bars. Just taking time out of your day to make something for someone that you know they’ll like will make a big difference to them.
Make a playlist.
Nothing says “I love you” quite like a custom-made playlist. This is the modern-day version of the mixtape and costs nothing to create. Making a playlist of songs that either remind you of them or that you simply think they’ll enjoy is a quick and easy way to show someone how much you care.
Give them a self-care day.
This one can be different depending on who you want to do this for. You could set up a spa day for them in the bathroom or do whatever they want to do for the day. Just spending the day focusing on them and doing all of their favorite things is a great way to make them happy and feel loved.
Do the laundry or dishes.
If you’re living with a family member, friend, or significant other, doing small tasks around the house can really take the load off of them. Taking the time out of your day to do a chore so they don’t have to is an act of kindness they won’t forget.
