Have you ever thought about creating a bucket list with your significant other? This list should be separate from your own personal bucket o’ dreams. Fill up your shared list with exciting, romantic, or silly ideas to do together. Here are a few suggestions to get you started!
Before you get too excited, be advised that we keep this column strictly PG.
Play Hide & Seek in IKEA
This seems like the kind of thing a couple would do in a movie, doesn’t it? Stage your own personal rom-com moment by playing hide and seek during your next IKEA trip. As a bonus, it’ll make shopping more fun.
Vacation in Paradise
We’re all about tropical vacations right now–check out our list of the best destinations off the beaten path! The only thing better than relaxing on a tropical beach is having your boo by your side.
Watch Each Other’s Favorite Films
Maybe you won’t love Blade Runner, but at least you can watch it for the sake of your favorite person. Pop some corn and settle in for a double feature of each other’s favorites, and then talk about what the movies mean to you.
Learn a New Language Together
It’s so much easier to learn a language when you have someone to practice with. Download an app like DuoLingo and choose a language that appeals to you both. Study solo and then practice together to reinforce your new skills.
Stay in a Bed and Breakfast
Have you ever stayed in a B&B? Many of them cater to couples by offering romantic spa treatments for two or baskets of champagne, chocolate, and flowers. Indulge yourselves with a weekend getaway, even if it’s just in the next town over.
Take an Epic Road Trip
Okay, this one might be more of a test of your relationship than anything else. Road trips bring out both the best and worst in people. If you make it through the journey, you’ll have some stories to tell and a new perspective on your love.
Go Tech-Free Together
When was the last time you spent a whole day with your partner–and without your cell phone? Agree to do something together without any screens involved. You’ll be forced to notice the world around you and actually interact with each other.
