9 Perfect Tips That Just Work To Cheer Someone Up

There is nothing worse than a sad sack. No, seriously, someone who is unhappy can bring an entire room down. Don’t get me wrong; it isn’t that I don’t have empathy. If something bad happens, I am the first person to step in and try to make things okay or cheer someone up.
If you have someone in your life who seemingly can’t get past the frown to the smiley face, then it might be your duty to step in and return the sunshine to their cloudy day.
# Send them flowers
If you want to cheer a woman up, sending her bright flowers is the way to go. If you want the cheer to last longer, make it her favorite plant. It can be the gift that keeps making her happy long after flowers have dried up and died.
# Buy them tickets to their favorite thing
Nothing makes someone happier than getting them out of their element and allowing them to spend a night free from thought. Buy tickets to their favorite show, concert, or sporting event to cheer them up.
# Set them up on a date with hotness
If you want to cheer someone up after a breakup, then set them up with someone hot. It doesn’t have to be the person that is “perfect” for them, but nothing can cheer someone up more than a little eye candy and a night on the town away from the house and loneliness.
# Take them to a funny movie
Nothing takes someone’s mind off their misery more than a funny movie. The key to knowing how to cheer someone up is to help them forget what is dragging them down. A funny movie can definitely do that.
# Throw them a surprise party
It doesn’t have to be their birthday or any special occasion at all. Remind them of how many people care and love them.
You don’t have to make a big deal about it, just invite those friends who want to help and show them a good time. Everyone needs a little attention and focus sometimes. Making them the center of attention may cheer them up.
# Show up and take them to dinner
Even if they say they don’t want to, show up on their doorstep and take them to dinner. Often, when someone is depressed, they turn down invitations and choose to sit alone wallowing in their own misery.
Stop them from doing that by just showing up. They can’t say no if you just go over and kidnap them from their single pity party.
# Plan a weekend getaway
The best way to know how to cheer someone up is to get them out of their situation. Sometimes you need more than just a night away. If you know that a friend is struggling through something, devote an entire weekend escape to get them back on track. Hit the beach or the mountains and fill their time with nothing but distraction and good times.
# Let them know how much you care
If someone is down, they just need to know that people care and love them. When you are in your own personal drama, it can sometimes feel like you are all alone. Show them that you haven’t forgotten or moved on to the next crisis by sending them messages of support and telling them you care.
# Invite their favorite person for a visit
If you have a mutual friend who comes to town and lights it up, arrange for them to come for a visit. That old friend from grammar school is the perfect individual to shake them out of their funk and remember what it was like to have fun.
