Wife Appreciation Day – Third Sunday in September


Wife Appreciation Day is celebrated annually on the third Sunday in September.

Since wives do so many things to make their husbands and homes happy, this is a day for men to let their wives know just how much they appreciate both the little and the big things they do all year long.


Some popular ways to celebrate Wife Appreciation Day are with a gift of flowers, perfume, jewelry or clothing.  A day at a spa, tickets to a show and dinner at a nice restaurant are also nice ways to show appreciation.  A foot massage and cooking breakfast or dinner at home can also be a very nice way to say, “Thank you for all the things you do every day.  I appreciate them.” Post on social media using #WifeAppreciationDay to encourage others to do so as well.


While the history of Wife Appreciation Day is somewhat obscure, it seems the idea originally was born to honor the women who, while they were married, did not have children.  Wife Appreciation Day was a way to make up for Mother’s Day since they did not qualify for that holiday.
