Simple Ways to Remind People You Love Them

Every relationship, whether with a friend, family member, or significant other, takes time, dedication, and effort. And listen, we’re just as guilty as the next person of getting too comfortable with our people and not feeling obligated to try anymore. But even so, it never hurts to remind these people how much you love them now and then. Here are some simple and unique ways to do that.

Show Up

“If it matters to them, it should matter to you” are words to live by. So if someone you love is graduating, receiving an award, getting married, or having a birthday party, show up. You being there will mean the world to them.

Write On

A handwritten card or letter means a lot in this digital age. If you’re creative, go the extra mile and make cards for special occasions.

Nifty Gifty

Every once in a while, get someone in your life a little gift “just because.” Maybe you’re at a local shop and notice some artisan jewelry you know your mom would love. We aren’t saying you have to spend a fortune, but these small sentiments will let them know you think about them even when you’re not together.

Speak Their Language

Their love language, that is. The five love languages are: quality time, acts of service, words of affirmation, physical touch, and gifts. No matter the person, find out their love language and speak it. It’s normal if your love languages are different, but knowing theirs will let you better understand them and how you can show them you care.

Listening Ears Engaged

Scrolling Instagram while someone pours their heart out to you doesn’t exactly scream, “I love you, and I care about you.” People can feel when you aren’t listening to them. So the next time you are having a conversation, make sure you’re really listening.

BFFB (Best Friends Forever Brunch)

Inviting your best friend (or sister, mom, etc.) to brunch is a great way to get some fresh air, eat delicious food, sip mimosas, and catch up.

Through Good Times AND Bad

Sending well wishes on a birthday or anniversary are no-brainers, but what about the not-so-joyous occasions like death, death, sickness, or birthdays of those that have passed? An “I know today is hard, I’m here for you” text is a big way to show those around you that you love them.
