Arguably the most important ingredient for any successful marriage is a good sense of humor. Being able to take the rough with the smooth and laugh a little at life is essential. And often being truly thoughtful about what your significant other wants is different to just being thoughtful. Men can be simple beings who often just want simple things. So, ladies, next time you’re thinking of treating your husband, take a leaf out of these awesome wives’ books. Build him a blanket fort, challenge him to a Nerf battle, or – better yet – just do anything that makes him laugh…
Wait, we don’t get it. How does he put the banana to shame? Can he pull off wearing yellow really well? Is he a great source of potassium? Is he the pick of the bunch? Oh… we get it now. Rude.
This is so awesome. The true way to a man’s heart is through his stomach – by way of his competitive nature. And an excuse to play Nerf? Can I volunteer as tribute?
This awesome wife just bought her husband a bouquet of love-nuggets. The way to a man’s heart really is through his stomach, it seems. These are making their way through his arteries as we speak.
Sometimes husbands need a little nudge in the right direction in the morning. This thoughtful wife has devised a great way to ensure her husband doesn’t get fired for turning up to work in his dressing gown.
The best part of an hour shows a truly awesome commitment to a joke. Still, at least she could use the cushion to stifle her giggles every time he walked past. Did she also buy him that awesome Mario statue? Marry your best friend, guys.
This husband was sent a picture of his newborn by his awesome wife. Unfortunately, a co-worker saw it over his shoulder and mentioned that the baby had inherited his eyes. He then made a mental note to start wearing mascara to work.
Flow charts are great. They give the illusion of decision-making by offering simple multiple-choice answers. Sometimes, however, they’re just a subtle way of helping you decide that no, Dave, you are not in fact hungry after all.
Ah, the 3310. You could throw that phone into a volcano, and whoever chipped it out of its petrified state, 10,000 years from now, would probably still get three bars and a bit of charge. She’s right: screw roses; this is love.
This wife has her priorities straight. Every shower routine should include a tiny bottle of wine to help wash away the day’s sins. Woo! Let’s get drunk-clean! That’s, like, the best kind of clean.
Mrs Spider: “How was your day, honey?”
Mr Spider: “A little rough. I think she’s leaving notes again. He seemed to know exactly where to find me.”
Mrs Spider: “Well, nice to see someone actually reads their wife’s notes…”
Mr Spider: “Karen, can we not?”
True love cannot be found in the twinkle of a diamond; nor can it be counted by the carat. Forever being able to carry around the Battle of Hoth from The Empire Strikes Back… That, right there, is true love.
You know you’ve snagged an awesome wife when one of these turns up for every minor achievement. His favorite was the “I lost a pound” cheesecake, because he had it all to himself. He’s getting pretty fat now, actually.
Harmless practical joker or evil genius? It’s exactly this kind of awesome wifery that keeps husbands on their toes. We applaud your ingenious wit, madam, but we do not applaud your cold heart.
Making lunch for your husband is cute. Leaving little napkin notes to apologize for the lack of variation is adorable. My lunchbox is just full of notes telling me how I’m a pathetic excuse for a husband. Which is weird, because I’m not married.
Pro-tip, guys: buy your wife a label maker, and you’ll never be bored again. Also, it will help you remember the names of the important things that can easily slip your mind. Like “CINNAMON” or “SOY MILK” or “BABY.”
Who said the most important ingredient of a love letter was poetry? We’re huge advocates for factual accuracy. FYI – roses come in various hues, and violets are more kind of purple. That’s been bugging us.
Blanket forts are AWESOME! Blanket forts with a bonus wife and pizza? Where do we sign up? Imagine coming home from a hard day, and your awesome wife has already set this up for you. If only you could marry her twice.
Okay, this is stepping it up a level. We bet it’s even got a hidden opening to slip beer and food under. In fact, his wife is probably already working on a bathroom annex so that they never have to leave. One thousand wife points to her.
This sweet note starts well and just keeps ramping up the awesome. It’s like she was in her husband’s head from the moment his day went bad. And she knew exactly what he needed to hear.
You know how it is. A big job interview can really knock your brain out of whack, and you can forget to do all the little things you need to do. Not this guy. Not on Niki’s watch.
