“Happy wife, happy life,” right? Making your wife happy has almost nothing to do with gifts and everything to do with how you treat her. While you may see your wife and how beautiful see is, there may be times when she feels invisible. You may feel frustrated because you don’t know how to make her feel better. One easy thing you can do is to compliment your wife. Praising her lets her know that you do see everything she’s doing for you and your family. Let’s take a closer look at some ways to compliment your wife today.

Tell Her How Good Dinner Was
When was the last time you told your wife how delicious dinner was? If it’s been a while, you better believe her eyes are going to light up when you tell her how good the meal was. Word of warning though. Make sure she made it and it’s not takeout or something from the freezer. Otherwise, your comment may backfire.
Tell Her You Appreciate Her
Make it a point to tell your wife how much you appreciate everything she does. From cleaning the kitchen to working her job to running the kids to their activities, let her know that what she does is important and means a lot to you. Wives often feel that they have a thankless job; prove her wrong.
Tell Her She’s Beautiful
Your wife knows she’s beautiful, right? I mean, how could she not? Well, the truth is women may often feel like they aren’t as pretty as they were ten years ago, 5 years ago, 15 pounds ago, etc. Just like men, women can be insecure about their looks. They notice the fine lines popping up around their eyes and the extra weight. Don’t ever leave your wife doubting how beautiful she is. Personally, I think this is an important one to tell her every day.
Tell Her She’s a Wonderful Mother
If you have kids, tell your wife what an amazing mom she is. I mean, do you realize how much women think about parenting? I marvel at the way my wife’s brain works… always analyzing every possible decision in light of her roles as mom, wife, blogger… and how everything she does affects the family. Especially if your wife is with the kids most of the time and does most of the parenting, it’s imperative to reinforce that you appreciate all she does for them.
Moms often suffer from mom guilt for ordinary things that we often take for granted and don’t really for guilty for ourselves… for taking “me” time, for working, for saying something snappy in a moment of frustration. Let her know how amazing she is.
Pay Attention to Small Changes
Last, but not least, this is a hard one. If you’re not the type to notice little things, you’ll need to try hard to do so. Notice when your wife changes her hairs, tries a new perform, or puts on a new outfit. Noticing these small changes will let her know that you still care about her.
Everyone loves praise. It makes them feel appreciated. Take the time to compliment your wife today.
