There are lots of simple things you can do to impress your wife, whether you want to make yourself irresistible to her by giving yourself a mini-makeover, show her how much you care with sweet gestures, or leave her in wonder over your many talents. Every woman is different and will find different traits impressive, so keep your wife's individual personality in mind when deciding how to best impress her.

Method 1
Impressing Her With Your Looks

    Keep yourself well-groomed. Women appreciate good grooming, so don't stop taking care of yourself just because you're married. Get your hair cut regularly and if you have any facial hair, make sure to keep it neatly trimmed.[1]
    • Personal hygiene is very important, so never get lax with it, no matter how comfortable you are with your wife.
  2. Image titled Prepare Yourself for the Week Ahead Step 6
    Get rid of worn out clothes. One easy way to show your wife that you care about your appearance is to take the initiative to get rid of any clothes that are stained or torn. Don't wait for her to go through your closet and do this for you![2]
    • Even if you don't have the time or energy to go through your closet, avoid wearing anything that is worn out or sloppy looking.

    Keep your style updated. You don't need to be a fashion model to impress your wife, but you should try to make sure your clothing is reasonably in style. Get rid of anything that is noticeably outdated or ill-fitting. Replace these items with garments that you think your wife will find attractive.[3]
    • If your wife has told you that you look good in a certain color, buy some clothes in that color. This is a subtle way of showing her that you value her advice.
    • If you know your wife hates a certain style, avoid wearing it, even if it's fashionable.
    • If your wife is stylish, she may enjoy the opportunity to help you pick out some new clothes, so ask for her advice.

    Consider hair removal. Many women do not like body hair, so if you have a lot of it, you may want to consider getting waxed. It will hurt for a moment, but it will be well worth it when your wife can't keep her hands off of your smooth skin.[4]

    Get a new scent. Your scent can complement your appearance, and can be a real turn-on for your wife. Consider try out a fragrance (or even a scented body wash) to make yourself more enticing to her.[5]
    • Consider asking for your wife's input when choosing a fragrance. She may have very strong preferences about scents.

Method 2
Impressing Her With Kindness

    Remind her how important your marriage is to you. Letting your wife know how much you care is a simple gesture that can go a long way. Every now and then, take a moment away from your busy lives and tell her how happy she makes you or how much you love being married to her.[6]
    • Be sure to switch it up. Telling her the exact same thing multiple times can feel rote and insincere.

    Be there to listen. Your wife may need to vent sometimes, and it's important for you to be available to listen when she needs you. This will show her that you care about whatever is going on in her life and want to help however you can.[7]
    • Sometimes your wife may want your advice, but other times she may just want you to listen to her. If you're not sure what she needs, ask her.
  3. Image titled Love Your Imperfections Step 3
    Be chivalrous. It's easy to get out of the habit of acting chivalrous after you have been married for a while, but your wife may really miss it! Try opening a door for your wife or pulling a chair out for her, just to show her that you care.[8]
    • Not all women appreciate chivalry, so be responsive to her feedback. If she seems annoyed when you open doors for her, stop doing it.

    Plan dates around her interests. It's not only important to keep going out on dates with your wife to keep the romance alive, but also to make sure that you consider what your wife is interested in when planning those dates. This will show her that you pay attention to her interests and want to get involved in them, which she will find very impressive.[9]
    • If you want to go out to dinner, be sure to think about your wife's favorite cuisines.
    • Dinner dates are great, but they can get a little predictable. If your wife has hobbies, find a way to incorporate those into your next date night (or day). For example, you could go on a kayaking date or take an art class together.

    Do something sweet on special occasions. Always remember important dates, including your wife's birthday, your anniversary, and Valentine's Day. When these dates come around, always have a little something special up your sleeve to keep your wife on her toes.[10]
    • The way you celebrate these occasions will depend on a variety of factors, including your wife's personal preferences and your budget. You may want to get her a personal gift, take her on vacation, or write her a sweet poem. All of these gestures will show her that you put thought into doing something kind for her.

    Help her out around the house. Nothing will show your wife that you value everything she does for you more than taking a little bit of the load off of her shoulders. If she normally does most of the housework, try pitching in. Even little things like making the bed can make a big difference.[11]
    • If you're not sure what to do, ask your wife what would be most helpful.

Method 3
Impressing Her With Your Skills and Intelligence

  1. Image titled Dance With a Ballroom Dance Team Step 1
    Learn to dance. If your wife is one of the many women who loves to dance, she may really be impressed if you take the initiative to improve your moves. Take a class to brush up on your dance skills, and then show off everything you've learned by taking her out on the town.[12]
    • If you think your wife would like to improve her dancing skills or learn a new style of dance, consider taking a class together.

    Read or study something together. If you want to show your wife your intellectual side, consider taking an academic course together or starting your own two-person book club. This will give you the opportunity to have scholarly conversations and show her just how smart you are.[13]
    • Make sure she will enjoy the topic or the book. She may not find your intelligence that impressive if she finds the subject boring.
    • Avoid showing off your intelligence too much. It's important to give her the opportunity to contribute to the discussion as well, or else she won't find it enjoyable.
  3. Image titled Turn a Relationship Into a Marriage Step 5
    Cook a gourmet meal. Your wife will always appreciate a delicious home-cooked meal. Whether you're a seasoned chef or a culinary newbie, get into the kitchen and try your best at preparing her a meal she will love.[14]
    • If you've never cooked before, your wife will be impressed that you are trying, so don't feel like you need to start with something complicated.
    • If you're already a good cook, try something new to show her how versatile you can be.
    • Be sure not to leave your wife a huge mess to clean up in the kitchen.

    Make her something. If you are handy or artistic even in the slightest, put your talents to work to make something special for your wife. Try to make her something that she has been asking for or that she will use regularly, as this will show her that you were really thinking about her needs.

#*She will find it extra impressive if you learn an entirely new skill.

    Pursue your dreams. Ambition can be very attractive. Show your wife how talented and driven you are by going after what you want in life and achieving your goals. This may mean starting a business, applying for a promotion, or sending that novel you've been working on out to publishers.
    • Be careful not to neglect your wife in the pursuit of your dreams. Your marriage should always be a priority.
    • Don't put your ambitions above hers. It's important to support your wife in pursuing her own dreams as well.
