Easy: drop the hints. If you want a cuddle, tell your man you want a cuddle. Draw him a diagram of how you would like that cuddle to resemble, including arrows on where his arms should land. Run through said diagram with him before proceeding. If you want a blanket, tell him you want a blanket. Make sure you repeat yourself, because on the way to getting the aforementioned blanket, he will probably stray to the kitchen to grab a snack. Or even just blank out and forget what he was doing or where he was going. Either way, just be direct.
That is all.
