  2. Christi says:

    Making baked goods for my favorite people . I make THE BEST heath bar oatmeal cookies ever!! yummy!

  3. Kelly says:

    I think simple is sometimes better. A sincere thank you can be really powerful.

  4. Lasharne says:

    Even if I know I’ve told my hubby that I love him that day, I’ll randomly give him a big squeezy hug and ask “have I told you how much I love you today”?
    I also tell my 13mth old every night whilst hugging him and putting in to bed (as well as at any chance I get to tell him I love him) that Mummy loves him more than there are stars in the sky and fishes in the sea.

  5. Bette says:

    There is only one thing better than shopping in Hong Kong, and that’s eating. From small noodle joints to upscale French restaurant, you will locate all sorts of restaurant, eating hall and snack stall on earth in Hong Kong. Here I found small amount of Hong-Kong-styled snacks online ( This is definitely a good choice before I have $ for another trip.

  6. My favorite is lot of quality time and some fresh cookies!

  7. Rae says:

    It depends on who they are, but I love hand-making items that can be displayed or used. I like making cards that can be framed, or blankets, hats, or toys that can be used.

    I like to show my Hubby how much I care about him by having his clothes, Keys, and shoes all laid out next to the shower so it’s a no brainer at 5 am. :)

  10. T Rex Mom says:

    Hugs are always a favorite of mine. Just to say, “You are cared about and loved.”

  13. tifeis says:

    I like to give hugs.

    But I just asked my husband and he said “Offer to not help them with their math homework.” Hmmmm… guess I’m not very good at math.

  14. Lisa says:

    I love to leave notes for my husband to find before he leaves for work in the morning.

  15. Melanye says:

    Lots of hugs, kisses, and smiles!! This is my favorite way that my baby shows he cares about me too!

  16. Caroline says:

    I like to tell them face to face :)

  17. Hallie says:

    Growing up, I became so passionate about caring for others and making a difference in other peoples lives that I became a nurse! Now, not only am I able to care for my family, but i also have the opportunity to care for others out in the community and help make their lives better every day! It’s the little things that leave the biggest impressions! :0)

  18. Summer says:

    I don’t make a big to-do about showing I care, its the little things. Like, always being there when a friend calls or needs me.

  19. Mrs. M says:

    I like to show them I care by doing all the little things that they love but never get done. It’s always nice to see faces light up at the little things.

  20. Anonymous says:

    I love to cook for people to show them I care. I’m 20 weeks with our first baby (and more tired than I thought I’d be), so my husband knows that if I can summon up the energy to make a good dinner, it’s because I really love and care about him.
    I guess knowing how much more tired I’ll be when the baby arrives, I’ll have the opportunity to show this more often! :)

  21. Jen S. says:

    Little random acts of kindness… that normally go unnoticed but I know I did the right thing. =)

  22. Sherry B says:

    I always used to write small notes and include these small gestures of kindness and love in my children’s lunches. One of my daughters was recently married and has told me that she includes small notes in her husband’s lunches, and she can’t wait for the day to include these notes in her children’s lunches!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    I love to send random, unexpected cards to the people I love… Just out of the blue. Such a fun way to make someone’s day.

    sarahscoffeebreak at yahoo dot com

  24. Melissa says:

    I love to send completely unexpected cards to friends and family via snail mail. It seems that only bills arrive in the mail today, so I like to make their day a little brighter with a surprise “I care about you” card!

  25. Kimberly says:

    Our wedding vows included “do the simple and beautiful things that make your love.” So everyday, I make a point to do just that. Anything from writing a love note in the fogged over mirror after a shower to putting on make-up and dressing up before my husband gets home from work.

    My husband and I both love letters, so we often write one another cards, even on random days.

  29. Cecily says:

    I was taught that serving people is the best way to show people that you love them. So I serve my family, my friends, my church, and my community. Food, babysitting, sharing things, etc.; all of it works for me.

  33. Anonymous says:

    My hubby is a full time student and a full time youth pastor at our church so he can have some pretty long week days! What I do to show him I care is by making his favorite cookies: Oatmeal Chocolate Chip. He gets to come home to the smell of freshly baked cookies and it instantly brightens his day! (The hardest part is not eating them all before he comes home LoL)

    My kids like to know what makes them “special”, so on days when they aren’t feeling so good about themselves, I sit with them in their favorite spots and talk about all the things that make them special. I make sure each child has a few that are unique just to him!

  63. Pamela says:

    It’s not very creative, but I show people I care by picking up the phone and calling to see what is new in their lives. No texting. No e-mailing. No facebook. I want them to hear the genuine care and interest in my voice.


  64. The Skeen's says:

    Sweet little notes hidden for your loved one or of course a great home cooked meal!

  65. HD says:

    I’m a paper folding fanatic. I love giving people flowers or strings of lights illuminated by the objects I fold. It takes a great deal of time and energy to fold even the smallest of some of my objects and I feel like it really translates to the people I share them with.

  66. Melissa says:

    I love to surprise people with cookies or just little notes to let them know I appreciate them.

  68. Peyton says:

    Looks like a popular idea, but I too, love to cook for others when they need it (after coming home from the hospital, during illness, etc.). I know it was such a huge help for me when I had a newborn!

    My husband’s Love Language is Acts of Service–so this past week I have made a HUGE effort to keep the house very tidy. He has walked into a clean kitchen for the past week and a half, and always rewards me with a smile, a kiss, and a thank you.

    For my kids, I show love by being Patient–not so easy. :)

  73. Jessika S says:

  97. nikki says:

    I like sending mail. Emails are great every day, but just going to the mailbox and seeing something in there for you that’s not a bill or an advertisement is really nice :)

  98. I love to celebrate the ordinary every-day occasions just to make their day. For example, it’s 42 degrees outside: perfect to get outside and play tag! Or I love baking cookies with my 2 year old just because. Every once in a while I like to send a card (through snail-mail lol) to someone who might need a smile. πŸ˜€ Sometimes it’s nice to get a real card or letter in the mail.

  99. My husband bought a couple of stuffed animals to donate to Children’s Hospital. They are used to comfort kids who need something to hold in an ambulance or helicopter. Him donating to this cause was the better than anything else he could have given me!

    For my husband, I love to do surprises for him. 30 days of notes before he’s 30th birthday. A couple surprise birthday parties. And there are the days where I know he really wants a video game, but he won’t get it because money is tight. I’ll get him that game if it’s on sale. Just to say I love you!
    For my kids, I love just cuddling with them on the couch and watching whatever is their favorite cartoon or movie is. Or sharing my stash of cookies with them! (They got some thin mints for with lunch today!)
    I really just like taking care of my family. I’m not the best housekeeper, so having a clean home when Daddy comes back from a business trip is like the ultimate way to say I care about him!

    I make and deliver homemade Valentines every year with all different colors of fabrics and lace and write a message with rubber stamps. It was extra special this year because I got to make them for several of my 4-month-old daughter’s friends [they were from her].

    My husband’s Valentine’s gift to our daughter was more BumGenius diapers. That was my favorite thing all night!

  189. I like showing I care by making homemade cards. I love to stamp and scrapbook, and I enjoy making cards that fit the person for whom I’m creating. I also love doing other small things that show I care. The other day I made chocolate chip cookies from my mom’s favorite recipe. When I returned some things of hers I’d borrowed, I included a bunch of the cookies, just because I knew she’d love them. I think the little things really show you care, just as much as any big thing.

  190. Sara says:

    Well, sometimes life doesn’t cooperate (especially life w/ kids!) when you have “plans” to show someone how much you care…. but even if things don’t turn out the way you wanted them to, a special hug (to anyone, not just your husband!) can mean the world.

  198. Sara says:

    A simple hug and kiss anytime, anywhere is the best in my book to show others I care!

  199. Joanna says:

    For me it’s making sure that their interests count, and I invest my time in those things. For my DD it might mean that I watch/listen to her prance around the house in her tap shoes a little longer than my eyes/ears would normally do (with a smile). For my husband it might be investing more time/recourse into ministry (his job), or making sure the house is a haven of rest for him!

    I know it’s cliche, but I’m all about food when it comes to showing my family that I love them and am thinking about them. Simple acts like leaving out a few raw carrots for my daughter who hates cooked carrots, or baking an especially yummy batch of cookies everyone enjoys, or for my husband I make him his own piece of meat rather than splitting a piece between all of us. It’s just so simple, but there you have it.

    Hold the door open for the person behind you.
    Let someone with less items go in front of you at the grocery store check out.
    If someone drops something around you, pick it up for them.

    I sewed my girls each a pair of pants. The design on them is cherries shaped like hearts. Then I made them each a Valentine card. I set the pants on the chair in the livingroom with the cards on top. When they woke up they saw them. Then we cleaned all day and surprised Daddy with a “fancy” candle lit dinner. We all put on pretty dresses and turned the lights off. We ate by candle light and pretended we were in a fancy restaurant. The kids loved it. So did Daddy :-)

Yesterday I went and bought him red and pink and white helium balloons just because I knew he’d have a field day bashing them around…so I put them in his room while he was napping and when he woke up the first thing he saw when he sat up to get out of bed was a big bunch of balloons… he beat ALL of the helium out of them and now they’re “balls” for him to kick around on the floor—its amazing how quickly he managed to kill them. πŸ˜€ Totally worth the few dollars I spent, though πŸ˜€

    And he shows me he cares after 90% of his nap-times by coming in, climbing on my lap, and wanting nothing but Mommy snuggle time and juice for about a half hour after. Yep, my lil man loves me πŸ˜€

  312. kristen says:

    Baking is probably what I do most. Yesterday I made and decorated big cookies for my husband and all 10 of my children. (well except for baby!) I now have cookies all over my kitchen. lol

  313. Jamie says:

    I’m a writer (although not professional), so ever since I was little I have written letters/cards to show my love for people. I’ve often written poems for my parents and my hubby. For my kids, I write fun little stories with them as the main characters. I love spreading the love! :)

  314. Susanne says:

    I love dropping a card or note in the mail to a special friend or family member just because. Nothing makes my day more than to open my mailbox and get real mail that is not a bill.

  315. Jessica M says:

    I like to give random hugs, kisses, notes, treats, and gifts to my family. I believe doing it randomly shows that you’re thinking of them all the time instead of just on special occations.

  316. robbyre says:

    I show I care in lots of little ways. I crochet, and make little gifts for my family…2 pairs of slippers completed yesterday. I like to make treats for my kids, baking, candy making. Yesterday I got each of my older kids one of those silly little heart boxes with 4 chocolates in it for $1…because a week ago my oldest commented how she loves that she gets one of those every year (lol I hadn’t realized it was important to her!) I show I care by loving my family every day! :)

  317. Amanda says:

    Lots of hugs and kisses and I love you’s!!!
    green_mama10 at yahoo dot come

  318. Lori says:

    A giant hug and a sweet I love you!

  319. Jenna says:

    I would love love love this! I show my love by being there for someone when they are down with hugs and listening ears. I am a listener so I mostly just ask how people are and hear what they have to say. I also show I care by giving lots of kisses (mostly to my little guy and hubby :)

  320. Jessica says:

    I love to show my husband love by doing the little things… the dishes (I know, I know), taking out the trash for him, asking about his day, scratching his head while he relaxes, making him his favorite meals, making sure we have ice cream in the freezer, etc… And we both loved on our little Levi, age 1, with lots of hugs and playtime with mommy & daddy!

  321. Krickatron says:

    I love to buy people little things for no reason. I told my sister yesterday I’d buy her a new purse she’s been wanting and it made her day. The reactions are the greatest gift!

  322. Rae's Mommy says:

    I care by giving hugs!

  323. Heidi says:

    I love writing a hand-written note thanking a friend for something they did or said, no matter how big or small.

  324. Melissa says:

    I like to surprise my husband with his favorite beer from time to time and last night I made him some chocolate covered strawberries. :)

  332. gkd says:

    I like to make a gift. One of my hobbies is beading, so I’ve made jewelry and bookmarks for people. Another is homemade jam or apple butter.

  333. Laura says:

    A kind word and ear of support goes along way.

  334. Kristen says:

    small notes of appreciation

  335. Laura says:

    I love to do little things for my hubby…a meal, a note, an email, text message, etc! Yesterday, I wrote love notes all over the wall in the shower using my LO’s tub crayons! He loved it!

  336. Jennifer says:

    I love to send a quick text or email to friends / family just to let them know they are on my mind.

  337. adf0905 says:

    I love to bake my husband’s favorite cookies!

  338. jessica says:

    handmade or homemade goodies are my favorite gifts to give!

  339. I love to cook really special dinners for my husband.

  340. Lolo says:

    My favorite way to show people I care about them is through my actions. How that is done varies by person and by day. It might be a hug, doing a chore for them, sending a handwritten letter, choosing an activity they will enjoy, making something for them or even a small gift. I feel that actions go farther than words in most cases.

  341. cdr2009 says:

    I love to cook and bake for people to show I care. It’s a great way to enjoy one of my favorite hobbies while letting my love shine through.

  342. Staci says:

    I show my husband I love him b making his lunch every morning.

  343. Anonymous says:

    I just love showing my loved one’s I care by simply telling them I love them and that Im always here no matter what the situation is we will pull through together :) Im the kinda person that needs to be told and reminded that Im loved so I do the same for them :)

  344. Charla says:

    I show my family I care by giving them my time. It’s often the small things that mean the most. Yesterday I baked my husband his favorite pie, but most days a small note or even just a hug shows how I feel.

  345. Sarah says:

    I show my husband I care by helping him and spending time with him. He LOVES to be together. I show my daughter I care by drawing with her and snuggling her.

  346. Amanda says:

    It’s rare that the husband and I have time to go out together or do anything fancy, so it’s just those random weeknights that we spend hanging together on the couch, eating ice cream and talking. The little things are what matter to us.

  347. Alycia says:

    I like to leave my boyfriend random cards throughout the year, just to tell him I love him and I’m thinking about him. Valentine’s Day is great, but it’s the other 364 days that are really special :-)

  348. Melissa says:

    I think a card is a perfect way to show how much you care. It’s a place for you to put your personal thoughts down on paper for the recipient to read over and over. I Love receiving and giving cards.

  349. Mrs. Haid says:

    I think sending unexpected notes or greeting cards is the best way I show I care. Getting a personal note is really wonderful during the middle of a week! Or… at least that is my philosophy! I also think that telling someone thank you or that you appreciate them for being X is really important. We are often so quick to complain that it is really great to be quick to praise, too!

  350. Janice says:

    We love you and ‘like’ you here in Canada too! Wish we could be part of your giveaways…although I have a US mailing address, if that counts :)
    We show love with hugs, kisses, spending time together, reading books, setting boundaries…just everyday stuff, with the occasional treat after dinner.

  351. I love to give gifts — especially homemade ones! :)

    kaleidoscopejane at yahoo dot com

  352. Lauren says:

    My husband’s love language is words of affirmation, so I know for him, that’s the best way to show him I care.. But he also likes when I bake him cookies! :)

  353. Kristin says:

    A hug is a great way to let someone know you care! But when you can’t be there, I think a message on their facebook page to let a friend know you are thinking about them, is just as nice!

  354. Sarah says:

    A home-made goody always says “I love you.”

  355. Madeline says:

    I believe the way to anyone’s heart is through their stomach – so I love to cook for those I love!

  356. Jenny H says:

    Lots of hugs and kisses!
    And little gifts when they’re least expecting it!

  357. Random hugs, kisses, and snuggles work with my little ones :)

  358. Katie says:

    By cooking something special, my husband complains sometimes that it seems we eat the same thing over and over. So I like to try new recipes for him. The kids I just sit and cuddle with.

  359. Lyndsey says:

    I like surprising people with homemade cookies :)

  360. Meghan says:

    I love giving gifts! Finding just the perfect thing is my favorite!

  368. Bridgett says:

    I show love by cooking! I’m the one that brings dinner/snacks/dessert instead of gifts. Today is my husband’s birthday and I’m making him 3 meals from scratch today, no gifts :)

  369. Amber Joy says:

    I like to write – actually WRITE – a note and mail it. With a stamp!

  370. Emilie says:

    I like to send a special care package full of things tailored to them.

  371. I like cooking or baking for people to show I care.

  372. Catherine says:

    For me, the best are the little things. I love when my husband does the dishes, even though they were my responsibility, without saying a word. Taking a load off my list is the best present I could get!

  373. Diana says:

    I like to make something yummy – cookies, smoothies, cinnamon rolls, bread. Or a hand made card. (Those don’t seem to happen as often lately – sleep deprivation has thrown a wrench in my creativity)

  374. keea says:

    I like to show gratitude to store workers who are nice, I tell my family I love them, I like making a nice dinner for my hubby when he gets home from work, I applaud my baby because he loves clapping. I also love to bake so friends and neighbors usually get yummy treats throughout the year. :) Kristen F. (designbykeea(at)gmail(dot)com)

  375. ..Jenny says:

    I like playing “secret santa” no matter what time of year. It usually means dropping by a friends house with some flowers or cookies and an encouraging note that’s left unsigned. The tricky part is ringing the doorbell and getting out of sight before they answer the door!

  376. Lani says:

    I like to bake or cook their favorite food.

  377. Karin says:

    Reading 20 books in a row to my toddler, then setting up an art project for him to do!

  378. Jessica G. says:

    Doing something little and thoughtful that would matter to them…getting their favorite drink at Starbucks, picking up a movie for them, etc.

  379. Anonymous says:

    with my son i am always sure to hug him and tell i love him at least everyday. With my hubby I like to send texts or emails letting him know I appreciate him, I also learned how to cook his ethnic foods!

    I enjoy showing I care my cooking yummy food and doing things that the other person would not normally do for themselves.

  381. One simple thing I do every school day is give each of my kids a hug and tell them I love them. We walk to school together, so the hugs happen in front of everyone. I love that they don’t mind the PDA. πŸ˜‰

  382. Kristan Anne says:

    I’ve recently gotten into sending snail mail just to say hello. Also, I sew, so I like to make up something small and send it to a friend in the mail as a little surprise. Everyone loves getting non-bill snail mail! And packages?! Weeee!

  383. Yesenia says:

    Because of both our schedules, sometimes my husband & I go days without seeing each other. I show him how much I care by leaving him little notes in random places to bring a smile to his day & make our reunions sweeter.

  384. I show I care by making sure that I set aside time for just me and them, be it my husband, my children or my friends. There is nothing better than one-on-one time to show you care. :)

  385. Stephanie says:

    I like to send “thinking of you” cards, just because–and sometimes I call up my DH’s grandparents just to fill them in on Luke (our 16 month old) and see how their lives are going!

    Through baked good and spending time with them

  391. erinwells says:

    I love to give handmade presents, so my 8-month-old son and I made my husband cards from paint and printed pictures of the two of them! My husband really loved it!

  392. Amanda says:

    I show people I care by being kind and gracious.

  393. Krystina M says:

    Saying “I’ll get up with the baby, you sleep.” at 445am. After he wouldn’t sleep until 11pm! Thanks, love!

  394. Amanda Faul says:

    I love to bake so I usually show I care through custom baked goods.

  395. Chelsea says:

    My favorite way is to write a handwritten note on a handmade card and then them how special they are to me!

  396. YaraC says:

    I show my husband I care by cooking for him. Left on his own, own he would eat hot dogs every day so I show my love with healthy meals.
    I show my daughter love by smothering her with kisses!

  397. Lisa says:

    I’m on bed rest with our third, so while I love baking, this year I laid on the couch and made Valentine Heart Bugs for my girls and looked up romantic quotes for a card for my husband.

  398. Sarah says:

    By baking something yummy for them!

  399. NewMommyMelissa says:

    My husband and I have a 3 week old baby and we spent about 11 days in the hospital. So right now were finally home and getting into our own routine with our little girl. I didn’t want to go out for dinner or to buy anything for Valentines day, but didn’t want to forget about it all together either. So I made a homemade card and heart shaped homemade pizzas with heart shaped pepperoni. Thr romance can still be alive…even with a newborn! β™₯

  400. Jendbp81 says:

    I like to do small unexpected things like making a suprise special breakfast! My daughter loves when we have homemade pancakes or waffles!

  401. EG says:

    Baking/ cooking, definitely.

  402. JLo says:

    It has to be cooking one of my husband’s favorite meals or desserts, especially the ones that are a lot of work when I don’t even like them. I know it’s wrong to ‘love’ them with food but it feels so rewarding in the moment!

    I try to always do little things for friends, passing on a tip or a recommendation, picking up something I see that I know they would appreciate (like new BGs for my friend who was interested in cloth diapering!). I’d like to think that my friends consider me to be a caring and thoughtful person.

  403. TEXAUS MOMMA says:

    For my husband, a clean house and a warm meal/dessert!

  404. Christopher says:

    I think taking them out for a meal. Everyone loves eating and not having to clean up!

  405. Ellen Davila says:

    I like to cook for special people in my life to show them that I care :)

  406. Katie says:

    I love to randomly write a note and put it in the mail. These days, most of us get bills and junk in the mailbox, so a handwritten “I was just thinking of you” card tends to brighten the day.

  407. Theresa says:

    I try to put the people I love first, every day! My family is my world! theresa.tolley@va.metrocastdotnet

  410. I love doing something personal. For Valentine’s Day I made my husband a photo wall calendar. Each month was a photo of us. On the calendar grid I marked specials events, days and birthdays with photos as well. Just something for his office to make him smile :)

    He loved it, and I’m so happy that he did :)

  411. Shalene says:

    We made cookies and had lots of hugs yesterday!!!

  412. Erin says:

    simple acts of kindness and encouraging words i believe is the best way to show someone you care

  413. beccajoy says:

    I appreciate the litte things in life and I know my husband does too. One way I show him that I love him is by setting up our coffee maker every night so he has freshly brewed coffee when he wakes to go to work. One of the many ways I show him how much he is loved and how much we appreciate how hard he works for our family!

  414. BeeBaker says:

    I love baking / making special homemade treats to show I care.

  415. Meg says:

    Doing something with a smile that you would normally complain about. My husband looooves Chinese food. Me? Not so much. But I know I can make his day by cheerfully suggesting we visit Hong Kong for dinner!

  416. Kendra says:

    Paying attention to everyone’s needs and doing my best to make sure they are met. Showing affection on a daily basis so there is no doubt about my feelings.

  417. Amanda says:

    Service! Doing something I know they need done. I also love giving gifts :)

  418. Mommysaurus says:

    I try to say thank you for the little things like doing the dishes or putting the baby to sleep.

  419. April says:

    I definitely think it’s all about the little things. Fixing a favorite meal, making the extra effort to clean up a little more, saying “I Love You” one more time, and making a handmade card. My husband gave me a lovely hand written letter- which means so much more than anything he could have bought.

  420. I hide love notes in my husband’s things for him to find. I his a ton of notes when he was deployed and he really enjoyed finding then when we were far apart.

  421. Sarah says:

    I love cooking and baking special treats for my loved ones.

  422. Erin Pellot says:

    I am always doing little things to make everyone feel special every day.

  423. Laura says:

    Since I’m with my family most of the time, the way I show I care is head rubs, kisses, hugs. Just lots of affection!

  424. Jen says:

    I’m a snuggler — hugs and kisses from me!!

  425. ShortyRobs says:

    Acts of service all the biggest displays of love :)

  426. Nisha says:

    I love to cook for people! Last night I planned and cooked a fancy dinner for my husband for Valentines Day. He’s usually the meal planner and chef so he appreciated it!

  427. Lindsey says:

    I love putting little “love notes” in my husband’s lunch box!
    And I can’t wait to do it with my daughter when she starts school and takes her lunch! :)

  428. Sarah Schulz says:

    My husband loves it when I make dinners that are mostly vegetables. He’s unique that way but he’s easy to please! He also loves books. I got him 2 books for Valentine’s Day and he was really excited.

  429. Morrigan says:

    One of the best ways to show I care. Random hugs and kisses in the middle of the day unexpected to my husband. He loves it.

  430. Meg says:

    I like to show I care by remembering and using little details about a person that might normally be overlooked or forgotten.

  431. Jennifer says:

    It’s the little things; my husband loves chocolate chip cookies and he’s a CPA who is now in the middle of tax season. Since he’s working on Saturday’s now I had a cookie bouquet sent to his office this past Saturday.

  432. I love to leave little note for the kids in their lunches, or send my hubby a silly love note via email to his work-

  433. Ashley O says:

    I show loved ones I care by spending lots of time with them, and making sure to tell them how important they are everyday! It never hurts to throw in the occasional special treat either! My husband and I love surprising our kids (and each other) with silly little things, the smile on their face is totally worth it :)

  434. my favorite way to show that i care is by cooking. i try my best to make healthy meals that my family will enjoy. it takes a lot of time but its worth it to know my family is getting what they need to be healthy.

  435. Amanda S. says:

    With my girls it’s hugs and kisses. With other it’s usually a little “thinking of you” gift or a kind word :)

    I did all the diaper spraying for my husband on valentine’s day!
    My favorite way to show I care is a good ole hug and kiss.

  439. Brenda says:

    Shovel my neighbor’s driveway, bake a special cake, let DH sleep in, send a photo text to grandpa, surprise DH at the office, plan a benefit drive. So many ways!

  440. I love giving hand made gifts. And as for my little ones I show I care by smothering them in hugs and kisses… sometimes I wonder if they think “Man, this woman kisses me way too much!” LOL!

  442. Tiffany says:

    I love to show people I care simply by telling them. I don’t need a special day to show my husband I love him. I do it at every opportunity I get. I think it’s best when it’s unexpected.

  443. Tiffany says:

    I show I care by telling my husband thank you everyday for how hard he works for us.. I show my 9 month old I care by smoothering him in kisses! lol

  444. Julia says:

    When friends need a little pick me up, or just because, I like to send a hand written note telling them how much I value their friendship and what I like about them.

    spearsgirls at hotmail dot com

  445. my favorite way of showing someone I care is getting them a little something that’s their favorite (like candy, drink, etc.) or in the case of my husband..offering him a foot rub without him having to ask :)

  446. Jenn says:

    I tell my guys every day that I love them. I’m a big fan of hugs too. It’s hard to stay mad when your arms are around someone you love.

  447. Monica P says:

    I like the overt “I love you,” most of the time, but sometimes I go all-out and do something crazy, like wash someone’s dishes or make/buy them a meal. It’s often spontaneous. I also like planning big surprises, like buying someone a new stovetop. For my husband, it’s really hard because the best way to show him I live him is doing all those little things and being consistent…but I do my best!

  448. alyssa says:

    I am definitely a gift giver. I love picking out just the right thing for someone. Or making a card. Especially for my husband. I love having my three year old help make cards or pictures for daddy. Or put little pictures or notes in all the random pockets of my husbands uniform for him to find while he’s at work.

  449. Cristin says:

    I think it is important to show them everyday…tell people you love them when you feel it, don’t hold back. Hug them show affection, people sometimes just need a little pat to let them know you care. I try to pay attention to my friends and family to know when they are in need of an extra hug or kind words.

  450. I love to show people I care by serving them…without complaint or strings attached!

  451. Carrie Roer says:

    My favorite ways of showing someone I care are cheap and simple so I can do them often! I like to do things for people — bring my husband a glass of water, do the dishes at my friend’s house. I also put little notes in my husband’s lunch – heart-shaped sticky notes are great!

  452. Calley says:

    My favorite way of showing someone I care is by doing something completely selfless and unexpected. It may be taking a friend dinner or helping them out with the kids. It may be taking our elderly neighbor lunch one day to surprise her.

  453. Michelle Ann says:

    Yesterday I showed I care to the kids in the after school program I work at, by allowing them to bring their Valentine’s treats into the homework room. I had a room full of 1st and 2nd graders who were more than usual willing to listen and do their homework. :0)

    At home we had a completely unhealthy breakfast of Dunkin Donuts, and my son got a heart shaped Boston creme donut. :0)

  454. Jill says:

    It depends on who it is. With my dad, I just sit and shoot the breeze and tell old stories and laugh. I know he loves that. I help my mom in the kitchen and ask her advice about things. She appreciates the help. My husband I cook for, make him special little treats, and tell him repeatedly how good of a dad he is. When I’m feeling generous I’ll get up with him at 4 am and pack his lunch. I almost always take the middle of the night wake up calls from our toddler since I stay at home. For my toddler I sometimes give her special treats or play certain games with her, give her my bubble bath, turn up the radio and dance with her, and I tell her how proud I am of all her accomplishments, no matter how bittersweet. For my friends I lend an ear–no matter how many miles we are apart, and it doesn’t matter if they’re blog friends I’ve never met or college friends going through tough times. I’m there. My ‘currency’ is different for everyone, but the love given is the same.

  455. Susan says:

    I like to make them a delicious home cooked meal!

  456. Erin says:

    I show I care by leaving little notes in my husband’s jacket pockets and surprise friends and neighbors with cookies or a sweet treat.

  457. Carly says:

    I gave my 2 older Children a small gift for Valentines Day when they woke up they saw the gifts under their pillow. I hope they always remember that Mommy celebrated I Love You day with them and made them feel special..It’s not just a day for Mom and Dad!
