We asked our Facebook fans about the tiny things their spouses could do that would have a BIG impact. Leave this open on a screen where he just might accidentally stumble upon it. By Lauren Le Vine, REDBOOK.
"Yesterday, I asked my husband if he would have come by my office to pick up my car and put gas in it. He said that he would have, and it really made me wish I had called and asked! He also blows me kisses all the time. It's our code for 'I love you.' We've been doing it for the 10 years of our marriage." - Lori B.
Try a random act of affection
"Walk up and give me a hug for no reason or kiss me when I'm just washing dishes. A woman loves affection." - Barb A.
Send a sweet tweet
"We met on Twitter one year ago and now do some goofy little things to show our love for each other. My husband's little Twitter gestures now include sending out a #showsomelove or #luvofmylife tweet to our more than 2,000 followers. He also snaps and posts impromptu pics on Instagram; however, we've made it a note that all impromptu pics of me must be okay'ed before being uploaded!" - Christian R.O.

Surprise me with flowers
"I wish he would surprise me more to show me that he thinks about me. When I go to the store, I get him things like new socks if he needs them or even something like a Kit Kat just to make him smile. He never does that for me. I wish he would just think of me for once. I never get anything like flowers unless it's a holiday." - Sara G.
Hit the hamper
"I just wish he would put his dirty clothes in the hamper that I bought just for his clothes. It's always on the side; even if the hamper is empty! I'd have less work if he just put his clothes in the hamper! Sure I can do it myself, but the point is to make my workload seem smaller! There is a place for everything - even keys, batteries, and nail clippers, but somehow we are always looking for them! He just won't put them back." - Siomara D.V.

Give me a massage
"I would so appreciate little things like bringing me fresh flowers (love them!) or surprising me with a foot or shoulder rub." - Kathy N.
Do the dishes
"We have been married for almost ten years and have two beautiful little girls, but a few nights ago, my husband did the tiniest, yet most romantic thing and I haven't stopped smiling since. As I was washing the dishes after the kids went to bed, he went to the fridge and poured me a glass of my favorite wine. He brought it over to me, gave me a kiss, took the soapy sponge out of my hands, and told me to go sit down. He finished the dishes, curled up next to me on the couch and whispered in my ear about how he's the luckiest man in the world. I've been smiling about that memory for days!!" - Yvonne M.
Plan a picnic
"My husband once surprised me with a necklace from Tiffany's, and the only thought that came into my mind was how much money it cost. I wish we would randomly dance with me - even when no music is playing, take me out on a picnic, or take a break from his phone. I want him to surprise me with something that doesn't cost a lot on any given day so I don't have to worry about balancing the checkbook afterward."

Write a love note
"I wish he would leave little love notes for me sometimes and be more romantic. I do romantic things for him all the time and can't help but wish it was reciprocated more often." - Mel Y.
Open doors for me
"He still opens doors for me - car doors included." - Melinda R.
