Here’s How to Celebrate Husband Appreciation Day During Lockdown

Celebrating Husband Appreciation Day on April 18th while we are #ParkedForSafety at home may not involve going to his favourite restaurant or out for a game. But that doesn’t mean you cannot fill the day with some memorable moments. The celebration will also be a welcome break as both of you play an active role in keeping the house in order during the lockdown. Here’s a list of things you can do together to appreciate him for sharing the load.

Plan the Perfect Movie Day

Is he an Avengers fan or a die-hard DC boy? Do western classics still make him want to don a cowboy hat or have you got yourself a Hrishikesh Mukherjee fan? Plan an entire day around the films and TV shows you know he loves. And if you plan to go down the superhero or sci-fi route, putting on some costumes will only make the day extra special and imagine all the Instagram stories!

Pamper Him Silly

From cooking his favourite meal to recreating your first date, there are many ways to pamper him and show your appreciation. A simple head massage or relaxing back massage, or even a joint manicure or pedicure at home can all be great stress busters.

Play His Favourite Music

If you prefer to leave it to the professionals, curate the ultimate playlist of his favourite songs on a streaming platform of your choice and make an evening of it. Remember not only to add songs that hold a special place in your relationship but also some of the recent groovy numbers that you both like. You can even turn it into a karaoke session by projecting lyrics on your TV screen and singing along.

Prepare Nothing

It is counterintuitive, we know! There possibly cannot be anything romantic about being lazy. However, given the lockdown, the frantic pace of work, and unending household chores, sometimes doing nothing and just being in each other’s company can do you both a world of good. Also, as you laze around, laughing at all his jokes (even the bad ones) it is bound to make him feel appreciated!

Hide Away Compliments

This does not mean you keep all the compliments to yourself. On the contrary, you write down compliments to him on little chits of paper and hide them in different parts of the house where he is bound to find them. Keep the compliments genuine and true to your relationship. As cheesy as it may sound, the truth is that everyone loves compliments, and it certainly will make him feel more appreciated.

Propose Getting to Know Him (all over again)

Yes, you have been together forever and know everything there is to know about each other. But this is not about that! We all know relationships can be hard. But on this day, rekindle the romance and rediscover the intimacy by pouring yourself some wine and going through these 36 questions, which are scientifically designed to strengthen your bond and bring you closer. You may even learn something new about each other in the process.

So, go ahead and make this day special for both of you! And the last thing to do before the day ends – do save a ‘Wife Appreciation Day’ on his calendar!
