It doesn't always take a grandiose declaration of love to get your message across. Most of the time, it's those little somethings and sweet nothings that help you stay connected for the long haul.

Here are 15 simple gestures that truly reveal he loves you: 

1. He helps you whittle down your to-do list.

Pick up her dry cleaning, stock his fridge with a week's worth of groceries, clean her bathroom, and frame the poster that’s been sitting in the corner of his living room since you met. After all, it's tough to be romantic with all those tasks hanging over your head.

2. He slips a sweet note into your gym bag.

What better workout motivation is there than a reminder of how much you care?

3. He makes you feel at home.

If you and your significant other live apart, make an effort to stock your place with specific items — food, shampoo, etc. — that he or she likes. It makes your place feel more like home.

4. He sends a postcard or love letter in the mail.

Emails are easy come, easy go. Snail mail packs a punch, especially when it's not a bill.

5. He shares his feelings through music.

Make them a sweet mixtape or playlist of songs that make you crazy about them!

6. He makes you breakfast.

It doesn't have to be in bed. It doesn't even have to be anything fancy. Heart-shaped pancakes are easy!

7. He recreates your first date.

Go to the same place, order the same drinks, and so on. Reminisce about your first impressions of your partner and some of the best, most exciting things that have happened in your relationship since then.

8. He displays a sentimental snapshot.

Instead of keeping an awesome photo of the two of you on your phone or Facebook wall, print a copy and frame it. Put it somewhere your partner will see it every day.

9. He makes the bed.

After you spend the night together, tuck the sheets in, fluff the pillows, and make it extra neat so it's relaxing to get back into later. 

10. He helps simplify your day.

Maybe he's been using the same broken umbrella for a year, or she's always misplacing her keys. Buy something to solve this little problem, like a top-of-the-line umbrella in his favorite color or a keychain that beeps when she whistles for it.

11. He suggests doing something you want to do.

Think of a restaurant, outing, movie — something that you know is right up his alley — and suggest it before he or she can bring it up.

12. He compliments you in front of other people.

It doesn't just feel good for both of you — it also inspires other people.

13. He holds your hand.

Even if you're just watching TV at home. Touch is an easy and powerful gift you can give almost anywhere, in various stages of dress.

14. He makes a list of what he loves about you.

Post a list of three things you love about her on her Facebook wall, or send it out into the Twittersphere.

15. He greets you in a loving way.

This is especially important after you've been apart. Even if it feels a little silly at first, it'll help you and your partner keep the butterflies alive.
