I need some help with a surprise for my FI. I have been so stressed out with wedding stuff (Mostly family drama on my side) and working two jobs and not getting five minutes to myself that I haven’t been the most pleasant person to live with. The part that kills me is that my loving FI never complains once when I go all hormonal bridzilla. I am a Taurus and have a hot temper but I am usually fine after a vent. Loving FI always just listens patiently and never judges just waits it out and still tells me how much he loves me with a smile on his face at the end of the day. (Sometimes I don’t understand my luck hahaha God love this man for putting up with me)
I want to show him how much I appreciate him and I need some ideas as to what I can do for him. I generally cook him a homemade meal most evenings so this is nothing out of the ordinary so any ideas on top of or besides that would be great!

I am a taurus myself so I know! Does he like chocolates? How about a chocotelegram??? I sent 2 to my then boyfriend, in different ocasions and he LOVED them :-). I quite enjoye the fact that he opened them without in the least suspecting what was inside and went all red in front of everyone 😀

If he’s not into chocolate, how about an edible arrangement? My and my guy both love these things, though they get pricey if you do any chocolate dipped pieces.
ETA: Does he like any sports? Can you get him tickets to something? A game or even a concert?

You could get him a little card and write something sweet in it. My SO and I do this – we buy funny cards and then write sweet/funny notes to each other.

Homemade meal + wine + lingerie + heels is always a good combination.

I personally think that the most meaningful thing you can do is to write something along the lines of what you wrote in your post in a card and leave it somewhere that he’ll find it at some point during the day. It’ll show that you’re aware of the situation, that you appreciate how wonderful he is, and it will also show him that you went out of your way to express your thanks.

@route507too: He is not much of a chocolate guy but @discodance: the edible arrangement thing might work. There are fruit ones that you can get now.
@discodance: & @Squee-diddly-dee: I like the note idea. I think I will pick up a card on the way home and write down my thoughts any suggestions as to how I could word it?

i think even a really sweet hand written note about how much you love him and maybe his favourite treat would make him feel like a million bucks

I would write it kinda like your post. Something along the lines of:
You may have noticed that I’ve been extremely stressed out as of late. Between wedding planning, family, work and life in general I have been feeling the pressure and as a result i know that I haven’t been the most pleasant person to live with.
Despite all of that, you have always been a loving fiance who never complains even when I go all hormonal bridezilla. You let me vent and get it all out of my system which really means a lot. Not only do you listen to me vent, but you do it with patience and a lack of judgement. At the end of it all you always tell me that you love me and you bless me with a smile on your face each day.
Sometimes I don’t know how I got so lucky as to have a future husband like you, but I love it and I truly feel blessed. I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your love and patience with me at all times, but especially lately. Please know that you are loved, valued and appreciated.
I can’t wait to marry you!
***Please note that I’m a huge sap so what would make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside might make someone else gag. 😉
