Mostly text messages or random emails when I am thinking about him, just saying how much I love him or how happy he makes me πŸ™‚ 

We also have a little secret phrase about how much we love each other, and I had that engraved on the ipad I gave him for Christas last year.  He doesn’t want to upgrade to the 2 because of it πŸ™‚

I know this doesn’t really help you since you’re in an LDR right now, and it will also probably make me sound like a 1950s housewife, but I clean up after him in the mornings and I know he appreciates it.  He wakes up before me, makes his breakfast and lunch, and is usually in a rush.  Today I heard him doing all the recycling and green bin stuff since today was our pick-up.  So, when I go down to the kitchen after he’s left and it looks like a disaster struck, I don’t mind or nag and I just clean it all up.  I’m off work right now (and not for much longer), so I might as well help him out with the little things since I have the time.

Also, once in a while in the evening, I’ll make him a “foot bath”.  Basically I just fill up a tub with warm water and some foot soap stuff or epsom salts and plunk it down on a towel in front of the couch for him.  He works 12 hour days and it’s often hard labour and he could use a little TLC sometimes.

I know things will change a bunch once I get back to work myself, but he just does SO many little things for me every day and I like to take care of him when I can.

I am not sure any of these things help in your situation since yoru Fiance is far away. These are the usual things I do for Darling Husband:

Make his breakfast, lunch and dinner (and put cute notes or suprise “treats” in his lunch bag)

I give him full body messages

I give him “just because” thoughtful and useful gifts

cute text messages/IMs through out the day. just asking him how is morning, lunch or afternoon is going. 

I always tell him thank you and how much I appreciate him and what he does

I do the man’s laundry. πŸ˜‰ haha. I know it isn’t helpful in your situation.

We were in an LDR for about a year towards the beginning, and some of the things we did:

Random cards. He would send me a sweet card and sometims flowers, etc, every month. I would randomly send him letters.

I left him cute little notes or lists like “Top 10 Reasons I Miss You” or “Why I Love You” type things.

He actually left a piece of tape that said “I love you” on the door handle of my car that I then taped to my wallet. It’s still there years later. πŸ™‚ (It’s transferred from wallet to wallet, ha.)

Make him lunch to take to work πŸ™‚ I also do the laundry, dishes, etc, but that’s not really “cute.”

I truly believe that my partner adn I are great at doing cute things for each other. We try to take turns doing things (without talking about it) – as well as taking turns being stressed/upset (only once have we both been really upset at once). I am a card person. I joke that it’s genetic and that my mom & I can keep Hallmark in business on our own; I even went to Hallmark HQ last year (not the point of the trip! I was at a conference and it was connected to the hotel). As a result, I always have cards and try to get extra cards for him. I do get cards for occasions, but also just for a “just because”. When he works a few days in a row (he works 12 hour shifts and is often in charge – he’s a nurse, FWIW) I like to leave a card out for him. We have a pug and are kind of obsessed with them now, and I found a card at the pet store w/ 2 pugs on it cuddling and it says “I can’t keep my paws off you!” inside. He was really upset the other day and stressed and I gave him that. He has it on his desk. I sometimes keep little things just to let him know I am thinking of him.

He’s an adult and has lived on his own for several years before I showed up, but even now when I do the laundry he appreciates it. I know he likes it when I fold the laundry and put it away.
