How to make your husband happy? This post is not for you if you are thinking how you could turn into the best cook, the best ramp model or the best vacation planner to make your man happy.
There is no doubt doing the simple things make them happy and you should keep doing those everyday. But there are some out-of-the box ideas we have that could surprise your husband and make him immensely happy.
These days young people are more self-centered than the generation of their grandparents. The main cry among the millennial is WIIFM – or ‘What’s in it for me’. Whether it’s in a product, or an employment or a marriage they need to know what they will get out of it. No wonder then that a great number of youngsters prefer to have live-in, open marriages, rather than one committed marriage. Nevertheless some do fall genuinely in love and want to cement their bonds and have children.
But men will be men and they are always looking for excitement in everything, that includes their marriage? So how do you keep the excitement alive and keep him happy. Just think out of the box.

1. Get him tickets to Wimbledon
Yes this is far better than planning that beach holiday or going a Europe tour. You always knew he was a tennis fanatic and imagine how many hugs and kisses he would give you if you handed him tickets to Wimbledon?
Take care of the travel plans and hotel bookings through a good agent. Going to Wimbledon and watching the stars play is an experience you should savour and cherish with your husband.
2. How to make your husband happy? Know his erogenous zones
For all but a few, sex is the golden key to be happy. The fact that you are a willing partner is in itself a great turn-on for your husband. If you are the first mover to initiate sex, you will double his happiness. It is like a sign of love to take the trouble, to talk to him, discover his fantasies and his favorite spots and positions during sex.
This enhances intimacy and your bond with him grows deeper. For most husbands having sex is the ultimate expression of love. And what is a marriage when the wife is cold or disinterested. Don’t let the burden of sex be entirely on your husband. You can do more than your share and ensure a satisfied and content hubby purring like a cat and eating out of your hand.
3. You don’t always have to be right
How to make a husband happy? Just agree with him whole heartedly when you are at the peak of a fight and see his reaction.
If it is a petty argument and it escalates to a full-fledged fight, take a couple of deep breaths. Do you really need to win? It is better to maintain peace than to be right. And it’s okay to say, “All right I give in”.
Also, when you have acquiesced a couple times he will get the drift and stop wanting to be right all the time. Watch out for abusive husbands though. If your being submissive makes him enraged – run for your life and don’t look back.
4. Learn to play a game
Men love football, golf, basketball, tennis, table tennis – just about any game. If there’s a particular game he loves playing learn it and give him the shock of his life – in a good way we mean.
Golf lessons or football lessons are always available for women. Learn to play the game and surprise him. Playing a game together is a great way to bond. Men love it when women can participate in a game with them.

5. Argue one at a time
How to make husband happy when he is angry? Argue one at a time. If for some reason the hubby is in a bad mood or has had a difficult day at work but you need to vent as well, hold on. With a little patience you will discover its best for one person to vent at a time.
When he is done and you want to express your feeling choose an opportune moment when he is not erupting like a volcano and put your thoughts up for discussion. He will appreciate this discretion on your part and will be more than willing to see your point of view, when he is in a calmer state of mind.
6. Make him the king for a weekend
Treat your husband like a king. Tell him he would be like an Egyptian Pharaoh and you will do everything to his bidding. You would cook for him, give him a bath, remove his clothes, put it back on for him and he could do whatever he wanted around the house and he didn’t have to move his little finger.
Give him the opportunity to become a king for a weekend and see how elated he would be. This will not only make him relaxed but it could culminate into some great action between the sheets. This way you will ensure your husband is happy and satisfied.
7. Get him a crate of beer (or any other drink he likes)
How to make your husband happy? Buy him his favourite brand of beer and that too get it in a crate. Men are usually used to their wives telling them off for their drinking habits. So you know his reaction when you hand him a crate.
But by getting beer you are not only telling him that you find him a responsible drinker (this advice is definitely not for alcoholic hubbies) but you are willing to pamper him with his fave drink. Tell him you could stir up some snacks if he wanted to call his guy friends over. Don’t be surprised if he picks you up and whirls you around in happiness.

8. Be consistent in your affections
Even if you are a busy mom or a working wife, a husband always like to get a bit of special loving. That can be in the form of picking out his clothes for office, making a special breakfast. Teaching the children how to express their love for him in a respectful manner. He may also feel that he is needed, most men do.
So tell him of your deepest wish – like you want to go on a cruise for a holiday. Or that he should pick up a puppy for the children’s birthday. It makes him feel useful and think of himself as a good husband and provider. Of course none of this is possible without constant communication. No better way to make him happier than to cook for him and make his favorite cocktails.
9. Make his mother happy
This may be a tall order for many wives. If you already enjoy a lovely relationship with your husband, no intelligent woman will ruin it by being nasty to his mother. Even the most difficult MIL will see that you care for her son. And if you do love him is it so difficult to be nice to the woman who cared for him many more years than you?
I have a simple point of view; if she were your boss at your place of work, you would be bending backwards to keep her happy. So take a little more effort – talk to her, listen to her and learn all your husband’s favourite things straight from the horse’s mouth! How do you know your husband is happy? Just look at his expression when he sees you talking to his mamma. Trust us it’s worth it.
10. Be a low maintenance wife
Men dread high maintenance girlfriends and are paranoid if they see the same traits in their wives. It’s not that your husband isn’t planning for a diamond ring on your anniversary but it does get irritating if you constantly drop hints about the size and the shape you want it to be.
Refrain from looking like the gold digger and be happy with what he gives you as gifts and presents. The idea is to appreciate the small things and make your man happy. Take care of your husband and make him happy he would reciprocate. That is more beautiful that a thousand expensive gifts.
It is not a difficult task to keep your husband happy, and it’s a cakewalk if he is a chilled out laid-back guy. A happy husband goes a long way in creating a happy fun-filled family.
