1. Stock your fridge with his favorite beer. Yes, men love beer (duh). But this is about more than his favorite brew. “It tells me she pays attention to the little things I say and do,” explains my friend Jared. “That’s what makes me feel special. Oh, and yeah, I like having the beer too!”
2. Take charge. Men get tired of coming up with date-night ideas. So take the reins and relieve him of planning duties for an evening. “Bonus points if she plans the night around my interests,” says my (other) friend Jared.
3. Score him tickets to the big game. This probably isn’t your idea of fun, and that’s half the point. He’ll not only enjoy the game, but because you don’t benefit from the gift at all—dollar dogs are not exactly fine cuisine, do you feel me?!—you’re showing that you genuinely, selflessly care about making him happy.
