With all of the stresses, chores, and distractions of daily life, it’s not always easy to find time to connect with your partner or come up with fun things to do together. That’s where having a couples bucket list comes in handy. With a bucket list like the one below, you and your S.O. will always have fun, cute, exciting activities to try that will bring you closer and help you re-connect. Work your way through these 40 ideas to keep your relationship exciting and grow closer as a couple.

Go on a picnic date.

  1. Lounge in the sunny grass with cold drinks and finger foods. Pack a picnic basket with everything you’ll need for a romantic afternoon at the park, like Burgers, champagne, and fresh fruit. Don’t forget a bottle opener!


  1. Marvel at the constellations (and each other). Grab a soft blanket and find an open, grassy area to lie next to each other while you gaze up at the sky. Cuddle, hold hands, and reconnect under the stars.

Sing karaoke.

  1. Laugh and belt your hearts out to your favorite duet. What’s more exhilarating than colorful lights, music, and being on stage singing 80s anthems with the love of your life?

Plan a road trip.

  1. Every couple needs an epic road trip story. Visit a nearby town you’ve never been to or road trip from one coast to the other. It doesn’t matter where you go, as long as you’re together.

Go snorkeling or scuba diving.

  1. See schools of fish and colorful reefs for a cherished life-long memory. Plan a trip to a seaside destination and go on an underwater snorkeling or scuba diving adventure together.

Go camping.

  1. Wrap yourselves in a blanket and cuddle by a fire under the stars. Get away from work, screens, and stress by going on a weekend camping trip. Pack hot dogs, stuff for s’mores, and a cozy tent for two.

Build a sandcastle.

  1. Be playful and embrace your inner child with a fun day at the beach. Work together to build the sandcastle of your dreams. When it’s finished, walk along the beach holding hands and go for a refreshing swim.

Plant a tree.

  1. Make a lasting impact that you can watch grow along with your love. Plant a tree in your yard, or find an open spot in your community that could use more shade. If you plant the tree away from home, visit it occasionally with your partner to see how much it’s grown.

Go wine tasting.

  1. Sip good wine and tour vineyards with your favorite person. Make it more fun by ranking each wine you try. At the end, buy the bottle you both liked the most and save it for a special occasion (your anniversary, perhaps?).

Make a fort.

  1. You’re never too old to make a pillow fort. Drape linens or sheets over your dining room chairs. Line the floor with thick, plush blankets and pack in as many pillows as you can. Once you’re inside, play games, watch movies, or just cuddle and talk for hours.

Travel abroad.

  1. Go on an adventure of a lifetime by visiting a new country. Experience brand new sights, sounds, foods, and culture together.

Try ice skating.

  1. Bundle up and hold on to each other tight. Hold hands, take selfies, and keep each other stable while you ice skate in case one of you slips. End the day with some hot cocoa or whisky and lots of cuddling to warm up. Ice skating is the perfect winter bucket list activity.

Dine out at a fancy restaurant.

  1. Dress up and dine out for a romantic night of good food and conversation. Make a reservation somewhere that’s typically “off-limits” and splurge on yourselves—you deserve it! Wear your finest and ditch your phones so your eyes are only on each other. --Kylah Smart (talk) 23:39, 26 September 2022 (GMT)

Complete a puzzle.

  1. Spend a rainy Sunday afternoon poring over puzzle pieces together. There’s something so rewarding about accomplishing things together as a couple, and finishing a puzzle is no exception. When you’re finished, consider preserving and framing your puzzle to have as a romantic memento.

Do an escape room.

  1. Solve cryptic clues, find secret passageways, and beat the clock. You’ll both have to team up and work together to find your way out of the escape room before it’s too late!

Go kayaking.

  1. Take time to connect with a calm, serene day on the water. Rent a tandem kayak for a chance to work together (and be closer to each other). Paddle your way to a secluded cove or romantic lagoon and enjoy the wildlife, peaceful quiet, and opportunity to re-connect as a couple.

Have a movie marathon.

  1. Grab popcorn, candy, and lots of comfy pillows and blankets. Watch the trilogy you’re both obsessed with from start to finish, or marathon your favorite classic scary movies. Whatever you decide, make sure you snuggle up on the couch and keep plenty of snacks within reach.

Stay at a nice hotel.

  1. Have a romantic, luxurious night away from home. Go for a fancier hotel than you’d usually stay in. Order champagne and room service, and plan on spending most of the night in the room together.

Go skydiving.

  1. If you’re looking for excitement and adventure, skydiving can’t be beat. What better way is there to shake up your typical routine than jumping out of a plane together thousands of feet in the air?

Make your own beer or wine.

  1. Crafting your own custom alcohol is a fun hobby to bond over as a couple. Decide whether you’d like to make beer or wine, or make both! Once you’re finished tinkering with your recipe and fermenting your drink of choice, pour a glass and cheers to the fun experience.

Spend a day at a theme park.

  1. Ride roller coasters and kiss at the top of the Ferris wheel. A day at the theme park will be packed with excitement, hand-holding, cute selfies, and a giant funnel cake the two of you can share.

Visit a museum.

  1. Admire beautiful art while you admire each other. Drift through the halls of the museum while locking arms and talking about what you like about each piece. Choose your favorites and see if they’re the same!

Go dancing.

  1. Cut loose and get your blood pumping on the dance floor. Enjoy a night out together with good music, tasty drinks, and lots of dancing and touching.

Get a couples massage.

  1. Feel the tension melt away as you enjoy a romantic massage together. After your couples massage, take a steamy shower together and spend the rest of the day lounging in bath robes.

Ride in a hot air balloon.

  1. Experience new heights as a couple. Take in stunning vistas together as you soar high in the sky and make a memory you’ll never forget.

Go skinny dipping.

  1. Strip down and splash around. There’s nothing quite as sexy and exhilarating as taking a dip sans clothes with your partner!

Stay in bed all day.

  1. Cuddle, watch movies, and have sex. Choose a gloomy spring or cold winter day and stay in bed pretending the rest of the world doesn’t exist. Let the day be about just the two of you and re-connecting as a couple.

Fly first class.

  1. Experience the high life together 30,000 feet in the air. Plan a romantic getaway and splurge on first-class tickets. Sip champagne, recline, and fly in style to your destination.

Go horseback riding.

  1. Saddle up and embark on a fun horseback riding adventure together. There will be stunning nature, beautiful horses, and inevitably lots of laughter and incredible pictures. And have fun.

Visit where you first met.

  1. Fall in love all over again at the place you first laid eyes on each other. Make an afternoon out of it by hanging out and reminiscing about your relationship. Tell each other what it felt like when you first met and what instantly attracted each of you to the other.

Rent an RV.

  1. Cruise the country in style and experience brand new sights. Visit landmarks or towns you’ve both always dreamed of seeing, or be spontaneous and see what off-the-beaten-path places you discover along the way. Stay there for extra fun.

Hike a mountain.

  1. Get away from the hustle-and-bustle and take in incredible views. Find a scenic hiking trail that leads to a beautiful hidden waterfall or a mountain peak with awe-inspiring views. Reward yourselves afterward with drinks and a dinner date.

Have sex somewhere new.

  1. Break out of your routine and be a little sexually adventurous. Rent a hotel room, sneak down to the beach at night, or find a grassy meadow on your next camping trip. Making love somewhere new will rekindle your spark and add some excitement to your sex life.

Create your own recipe.

  1. Make a custom dish together that can be a staple of your relationship. Choose a meal or dessert you both love, then start tinkering with the recipe to make it your own. Get creative and be playful—the more mess the better!

Play in the rain.

  1. Grab your rain ponchos and head outside the next time it’s raining. Walk holding hands, splash in puddles, and kiss each other in the rain.

Stay at a bed and breakfast.

  1. Have a charming, romantic weekend away from home. Book a room at a quaint B&B and spend the weekend eating homecooked meals, admiring the architecture, and connecting with each other.

Do couples yoga

  1. Stretch, unwind, and put your hands all over each other. Take a couples yoga class or watch videos online and do it in your living room. The important thing is that you’re getting some intimate time together.

Go apple picking

  1. Collect apples, hold hands, and drink warm cider. Bring home your haul of apples and bake an apple pie together for even more romantic fun.

Watch the sunset.

  1. Talk about life, love, and your relationship as the sun goes down. Park the car at a scenic overlook or lay down a blanket on a hill at the park and cuddle with each other.

Adopt a pet.

  1. Add joy to your relationship with a furry, feathery, or scaly friend. Pets are a lot of work, but they also bring life, warmth, and excitement to a home. If you and your partner love animals, it might be time to add a new member to your family!
    • You can spice up a long-distance relationship by spending quality time together.
    • Arrange a virtual date and have some fun.
    • For example, you can have dinner together, read poetry, watch a movie, or text inspirational things. You can text a song and say that the song reminds you of the other person or share YouTube clips.
