Is the scorching heat outside burning your skin and giving you headaches? Or is it the end of the month and you’re too broke to party out? Or Is it just a lazy day and you would rather spend time indoors than having to dress up and leave the house?
Here are 10 amazing things you can do with your significant other being at home. What’s better than staying indoors all day and having a fun and memorable time, trying new things out with your partner! Home is where your story begins.
1. CANDLELIGHT DINNER DATE
Going out for dinner is fun but also expensive. Cook a three-course meal together. Then get into your best clothes and make a candle light arrangement on the table. Place two chairs on either sides and play some soft music from your laptop. And there you go! You are on a beautiful date with your loved one and guess what, PDAs are totally allowed.
2. MOVIE / TV SHOWS MARATHON
Cuddle up in the sofa and spend the entire day binge watching television shows or your favorite movies. Make some popcorn or order in a box of pizza and some beer and your day is good to go. Laugh and cry together while watching them and make sure there’s a lot of canoodling in between.
3. PLAY BOARD GAMES
You’re never too old of games. Spend an afternoon playing board games with your partner and while at it, make room for healthy arguments. A board game is a good way to take your mind off usual thoughts and focus on game-related activities and decisions. Scrabbles, Checkers, Chess or even Twister are some of them you can play for fun. To spice it up, you can even add in your own rules. Play it safe. Not.
4. CULTIVATE A HOBBY
Some people are really good at writing stories and poems. Others are brilliant strumming the strings of the guitar. And some are gifted with a pencil, charcoal or brushes. Whatever your strength is, make your day productive together. It’s not necessary, your partner and you need have the same skill. You can paint a picture while he can write a story or a poem. You can have a similar theme to the art and then show your masterpieces to each other. Don’t forget to reward one another with kisses and hugs.
5. PILLOW FIGHT
A pillow fight may sound silly and childish but that is the entire point. Put on your jammies, throw a mattress on the floor, and go at it. In addition to being a great stress reliever, this has a pretty good chance of leading to a tickle fight. Just remember not to be too rough. The idea is to amuse your partner and make him or her laugh. What a dun way to revive your childhood memories back.
6. READ A STORY
You can read him/her a chapter from your favorite book or one of your favorite articles. Maybe your lover has a romance section on Kindle that he/she has been trying to get you to read something since a long time. This is a great way to spend quality time with your partner because it not only gives you the intimacy of being close together, but it just might lead to something really spicy to top off your evening.
What’s better than getting drunk and singing away to glory? You can rent karaoke sets for a day and set it up at your place. Start by performing songs for each other and take it forward by singing songs together with some dancing and great moves. You know the best part? There’s no one to judge you so get as crazy as you can.
8. YOGA / EXERCISE TOGETHER
Spend a morning getting fit. Practicing yoga with your partner helps to build trust, create harmony, and strengthen bonds. Get positioned, focus on the breath, and learn the poses first. You might have to tweak up the setup to see what works best for you. Practicing couples yoga can lead to some of the most intimate and fulfilling times you’ll spend together.
9. MAKE SOMETHING TOGETHER
Try to create something with your partner. It can be a lamp or a collage with your pictures or some art and craft. You might not be gifted artists which is why it will be fun. This doesn’t have to be elaborate, you can use stuff from around the house. It’s definitely a great way to stimulate the creative sides of your brains. Spend some amazing time with your partner and have a new décor item for your house at the end of it. What a win.
10. GIVE A MASSAGE
A good satiating massage session is one of the ultimate enjoyments. Spend an evening giving one another a full body massage in turns and watch it rejuvenating the both of you. A massage is like love; it’s a moment in time that binds two people in a bond that’s blissful and perfect.
So stay indoors and lock the doors. There’s no place like home.
