Listen to them well

While extravagance may be nice, one of the simplest ways to show someone you care about them is to just listen. It may sound simple, but many of us don’t always have access to someone who will truly listen to understand and engage with us in conversation. Listening to someone during a light-hearted conversation, or as a shoulder to lean on during a rough patch, can make a huge difference in their day.

A surprise is always a nice thing to find. And one that is handwritten is even better. Leaving a cute note on the fridge is a simple way to show someone you care.

A simple note is a perfect way to let someone know you were thinking of them.

Get them a gift

Gift giving is a sure way to make someone smile. But the trick with gift giving is that you either have to be thoughtful and think of something they would like or need. Or you can go the simpler route and get them a more generic gift. Even something as simple as a gift card is a nice way to cheer someone up. Whatever the gift may be, taking the time out to buy a gift is a great way to let someone know you care about them.

Make them a home-cooked meal

Cooking for someone is such an intimate act. You put your heart and soul into a meal when you cook from scratch. You don’t have to be a pro in the kitchen or have the best kitchen appliances or pots and pans. The meal doesn’t even have to be all that fancy with complex recipes and ingredients. But taking the time to make someone a meal means you care about their well being, and you want them to feel nourished and looked after. Definitely consider making a home-cooked meal for your next act of kindness for a loved one.

Don’t go overboard

Another simple way to show you care about someone is to respect their boundaries. After thinking of different ways to show your love through their actions, sometimes the best way to show that care is to respect how they feel and their need for personal space. If they aren’t in the mood for affection or attention, give them that time to themselves. We all need personal time to reflect, self-soothe, or just get a break from another person’s energy. Respecting their needs by giving them what they desire, even if it’s distance, is a huge and impactful how to show them that you care.
