What Can You Give Your Husband?

So determined am I to do better at honoring the man my children call Daddy that I will be writing about it for five weeks!  Every Tuesday, I, along with four very talented bloggers, will be sharing new ideas with you on ways we can all treat our husbands with the respect and honor they deserve!


The first set of posts all covered Gifts That Show Your Love & Respect.  In case you missed any, you can find them all right here:


Tara of Feels Like Home – Tara offers ten concrete, excellent examples of how to show your husband respect.

“The more I thought about it, I realized that respecting my husband isn’t a once a year gift. It’s not packaged in pretty paper with a fancy bow. It’s a thousand little gestures spread throughout the year.”

She is absolutely right, and she has some great ideas of just how to do that!


Amy of The Finer Things in Life Amy nails it with the idea of- get this- ASKING him:

“As we approach Father’s Day this year, I’m going to make a concerted effort to make the day about my husband and what he wants (Novel idea, right?) rather than what I think he needs or what would be easy for me to give.  That, I believe, would be the best way to show him the love and respect he so very much deserves.”

Read her post to see how simple (really!) showing your respect can be.


I, JessieLeigh, shared a simple tangible gift you can create for less than three dollars:

“Honestly?  It’s easy to grab a new shirt… to find a fun gadget… to cook a yummy meal.  And there’s nothing wrong with those things!  But, at the heart of it, what does my husband need most from me?  What can I give him that will have a lasting impact on both our relationship and the way his children view him?  Respect.”


Mandi of Motherhood… Your Way – Mandi writes a stellar post on ways to show our husbands respect:

“Although I love and appreciate him more than words can say — not only as my husband, but also as my best friend and the father of my children — I will be the first to admit that I’m not always great at the whole respect thing.”

You wouldn’t guess it after you read her fantastic list!


Jessica of Good (Cheap) Eats

Jessica gets right to a man’s heart… through his stomach!

“Not only do these gifts support one of our most basic human needs (eating), but they also show love and respect if they fit the man they’re destined for.”

Jessica’s suggestions are varied and creative and serve as a great reminder of how, with a little thought, we can show great respect with what we serve the men we married!


I may be biased, but those are some great reads!  I hope you have the opportunity to read them all.

And, for fun, tell me: what would you love to see addressed in this series?   Are there any areas where you feel you struggle in Honoring the Man They Call Daddy?  I’d love to read about it in the comments.

  • Love this series and this article! I’ve been married now for 18 years (my folks have been married for 59 years) and I’ve learned a heck of a lot about how important proactively showing respect and love for one’s spouse really is.

    Looking forward to reading more!
