If you’re looking for a few ways to make your girl swoon and love you more, read on. Here are some sweet things to do for your girlfriend.
Girls really aren’t as complicated as men think they are. We may need a few more compliments and a little more cuddles, but we’re pretty easy to please and take care of. However, if you don’t make any effort at all to do sweet things for your girlfriend, it’ll cause more problems than it’s worth.
Don’t you want to make your girlfriend happy? It’s far too often that I hear a guy complaining that he doesn’t know what he’s doing wrong, and yet he doesn’t try anything to make it right. More than likely, he’s just not doing enough sweet things for his girlfriend.
Why girls need extra attention
I’m sure you’ve noticed by now that having a girlfriend means that you have to dedicate some of your time and attention to her. And probably more time and attention than you think she needs. The truth is, girls need more attention than guys for a lot of reasons.
You may think she’s being “clingy,” but in actuality, she just wants some of your time. Most girls love reassurance and to feel like you truly care. And the way we feel like that that is when you give us attention and do sweet things for us.

Not all of the sweet things you do have to be over the top, either. You can do really simple things every day that will make her appreciate and love you more. If you’re not a romantic at heart and are having trouble thinking of sweet things to do, we’ve got your back with these 20 things that’ll be sure to make your girl happy.
#1 Do her laundry. I just want to make sure all guys know that girls hate laundry. Once in a while, you’ll get a girl who doesn’t mind doing it while watching her favorite show. But for the most part, girls hate laundry. So, do her a favor and get hers washed, dried, and folded.
#2 Clean her place. We really don’t have the time or the energy to clean our place all the time. After the gym, work, grocery shopping, and whatever else we have to do, it just sucks to have to come home and clean up. It would be one of the most awesome sweet things to do for your girlfriend if you just cleaned up her place before she got home.
#3 Pick up her favorite candy on your way home. This is such a simple thing to do yet it means SO much to your girlfriend. If you stop to get gas, pop into the store and grab her favorite candy and watch the appreciation light up her face. [Read: 20 ways to make your girlfriend incredibly happy]
#4 Write her a cute note and leave it for her to find. This may seem really cheesy, but it’s so underrated. It’s such a sweet thing to do for your girlfriend, and it’ll make her whole day.
#5 Get the oil changed in her car. This is another chore for us that we HATE. It’s annoying, the garage guys always try to overcharge us, and it’s just a downer on our day. Take her car and get the oil changed while she’s with friends.
#6 Fill up her gas tank. Now, this obviously costs money and can be pretty damaging to the wallet to do all the time, but if you just do this once every couple months you wouldn’t believe how grateful we can be. [Read: 25 sweetest romantic gestures for everyday life]
#7 Watch her favorite movie – even if you hate it. We know you’re not into sappy love movies, but if it’s movie night, let her watch her favorite. It’s another one of those really sweets thing to do for your girlfriend, and it’ll mean a lot to her.
#8 Be nice to her friends. This is another really easy thing that will make her SO happy. You just have to be kind to her friends, even if you really can’t stand one *or all of them*.
#9 Let her have the last bite of the dessert. I know we always refuse and make you eat it, but that’s only because we don’t want to look like a fatty. I promise we REALLY want to eat that last bite. So let your girlfriend have it, and she’ll love you for it. [Read: 36 sweetest things to do with your girlfriend]
#10 Read her favorite book, and talk about it with her. Even if you’re not a big reader, if you read her favorite book and then get into a deep discussion with her about it, that’s pretty much one of the most amazing sweet things to do for your girlfriend.
#11 Bring her lunch if you have the day off. She doesn’t want to eat a cold lunch she packed at 7 a.m. If you have the day off, it would be really sweet for you to bring her a hot lunch.
#12 Kiss her on the cheek in public. Public displays of affection that are innocent and cute like this mean so much to a girl. It’s like you’re proclaiming your love for her, and she’ll love it. [Read: 50 really cute things to say to your girlfriend]
#13 Plan a surprise date that is filled with things she loves. This is another one of the sweet things to do for your girlfriend that only has to be done every so often. However, if you plan everything – even her clothes – you don’t even have to do it very often, because she’ll remember it for a LONG time.
#14 Plan out a fun day for her and a friend. Instead of planning a date with her, put together a fun day for her and her bestie. Get them massages, or book an appointment for them to get their nails done – on you.
#15 Dance around the house with her. This is something that has to happen in the moment, but when she’s cooking and there’s music on, grab her and spin her around a little bit. It’s one of those really sweet things to do for your girlfriend, and she’ll appreciate it a lot. [Read: Interesting things to talk about with your girlfriend]
#16 Buy her flowers for no reason. This is another classic, but it never goes without appreciation. Doing it for no reason will earn you bonus points.
#17 Give her advice when she needs it. Don’t just nod and say, “mhmm” to all her problems. If she confides in you, take it seriously and dish out your best advice. This is such a sweet notion, and she’ll feel like you value her happiness this way.
#18 Hold her face in your hands and tell her she’s beautiful. This is really such a simple thing that requires no work or money on your part, yet it has the power to make her happy for the entire day. [Read: 10 ways to cheer up your girlfriend when she’s down]
#19 Give her praise when she’s working on something tough. Cheer your girl on! If she has a tough project at work and shows it to you, tell her how admirable she is for working so hard. Girls LOVE to hear that stuff.
#20 Draw her a bath and bring her a glass of wine. This is another really easy thing to do, and it’s also so sweet. Draw the bath, throw in some relaxing essential oils, and pour her favorite glass of wine. Have it ready for her when she gets home after a long day at work.
