Going on wine-tasting tours can burn massive holes in your pockets. 

That’s why I suggest you bring the tour to your home and experience the exotic blends from around the world with your partner in the living room! Many companies offer samples and wine-tasting packages to try at home without spending a bomb on flights, hotels, etc.

31. Adopt A Pet

Highly recommended for committed folks looking to take a big step without overboarding or feeling overwhelmed.

Not to forget the complementary date ideas you get — dog parks, early pet walks,  buying pet supplies, etc!

31. See The Northern Lights

Couples Bucket List Ideas

I guess this goes without saying — northern lights are on the bucket list of almost every couple. And why not? They’re beyond spectacular and deserve the hype. So, the next time you’re planning a vacation during winter, you know where both of you are headed!

32. Plan A Beach Date

Need a low-key getaway from the hustle-bustle on a shoestring budget? Hit the beach, lovebirds! I’m all hearts for slow-burn romances, and a beach date is the epitome of unforced building up and getting to know your partner. 

You can have a picnic by the beach or simply take a long stroll along the beachline and converse endlessly.  Not enough? Here are some more unique beach date ideas for you and your partner to try out!

33. Paint Each Other!

Ahem ahem. Time to get a bit artistic (read naughty). Slather each other with body-safe paints and trace their outline with a paintbrush on a huge canvas/sheet. 

You can also spruce it up with simple games like heads or tails and the winner gets to paint on their partner’s body wherever they want! In addition, throw in some appetizing stuff — chocolates, whipped cream, and wine to heat things up. 

34. Go Scuba Diving

If you live near the ocean, go scuba diving already! And if you don’t, you know what to plan for your next vacation.

Especially if both of you are always fascinated by Mother Nature and have a soft corner for the sea world. There’s nothing more exhilarating than witnessing its wondrous secrets in real life.

35. Get A Couple’s Massage

Couples Bucket List Ideas

Now there are two ways to do this. 

First, if you’re dead tired and need a relaxing day off together, I’d suggest taking a spa appointment. Simply lie down, relish the different spa date activities in the package (facial, massage, sauna, etc.), and let go of all your worries.

Second, you can be each other’s massage therapists! Who knows what raunchy turn this date idea might take?  🤭

36. Stay In Bed All Day

Often, we try too much to set things right, it starts taking a toll on us. So, how about you don’t try once in a while and just be? 

I love snuggling with my boyfriend when life becomes overwhelming. And if you have reached that point with your partner, my go-to date idea is to stay in bed all day and have the coziest time together!

37. Get, Set, Road Trip

Couples Bucket List Ideas

A change of place is always appreciated. Who knows what adventure might be in store for you when you unravel the “unknown”?

Take my advice, book a rental (if you don’t have transport) and explore nearby places with your partner starting next weekend. You don’t have to wait for long holidays to set off. 

Plan short trips (1-2 days) and get a breath of fresh air every now and then.

38. plan a trip Abroad

And if you are ready to empty your pockets, why not check off some places on your world tour bucket list?

You’ll be each other’s support as you visit a different country, explore their culture, and try out new cuisines. I’m sure going abroad will only strengthen your trust and understanding!

39. Try Escape Rooms

Couples Bucket List Ideas

The best way to escape boredom in a relationship? Enter an escape room!

Solves puzzles together to find hidden clues, unlock different rooms and embark on a nerve-racking but crazy, hilarious adventure! 

Plus there are so many options to choose from — horror, fantasy, crime, and so on. If you’ve known each other for a long time, you can also try out group escape rooms and go on double/triple dates with your gang! A core-memory moment. ♥️

40. Climb A Mountain

Need a weekend away with your partner to reset? Climb a mountain this Sunday!

As exciting as the trek sounds, it will be full of hurdles and challenges. And that is what the goal is. A bit of roughness so that your caring sides come to the surface. 

You don’t have to do small talk or anything. Hike your way up quietly, show each other fascinating insects, flowers, or views, and let the serenity unfold its magic.

41. Get Healthy Together

Couples Bucket List Ideas

Weird? Hell NO!!

Getting healthy and fit can be really challenging for some of us. There can be numerous factors to pull you down each time you try — work life, taking out time for bae, mental exhaustion, etc.

How about entering the healthy era with your partner, together? It’s a great way of understanding each other’s insecurities, struggles, and fears. 

Plus, you get to motivate each other to push more and not give up!

42. Join A Cooking Class

Doesn’t matter whether you can cook a scrumptious dish or a disaster in the kitchen. It’s always fun to join a cooking class and learn new recipes, all while spending quality time with bae.

And it’s not just the cooking that livens up the mood. Searching for the right classes, going grocery shopping (if learning online), and cleaning up the mess together are also key ingredients!

43. Binge-watch A Show

Couples' Bucket List Ideas

If you haven’t already binge-watched something with your partner, this is your sign to do it ASAP!

There’s a part within all of us that’s a sucker for couch potatoes. Better make the most of it when you get time!

Grab your cozy blanket, get some snacks to gorge on, and binge-watch an edge-of-the-seat thriller with your partner.

44. Or Have A Movie Marathon!

A lesser-known couple’s bucket list idea, you can also watch movies back-to-back if there’s no good show at the moment!

You can recreate the cozy Christmas vibe from your childhood by watching Christmas movies like Home Alone, The Polar Express, The Grinch, The Holiday, etc.

Or have a Harry Potter marathon because no matter how many times you watch it, it’s never enough.

45. Attend A Concert Together

Couples' Bucket List Ideas

Seeing your favorite artists perform live in front of you is a rare and special moment. And sharing it with your partner will only add the cherry on top.

So, don’t miss out on this opportunity if your (or your partner’s) favorite band/artist is touring somewhere nearby. After all, love starts with caring about each other’s interests!

46. Take A Bubble Bath

No worries if you’re unable to hit the road this weekend. You can also have a splendid romantic time at home, within the bounds of your bathtub!

Pick out your favorite bubble bath, select the candles (go for soft lighting to set the mood), and bath accessories (caddy, essential oils, aromatherapy diffusers, etc.). 

Don’t forget to add some expensive champagne, ambiance music, and sexy flirting to nait your couple’s bubble bath!

Bottom Line on Couples Bucket List Ideas

Besides the above Couples’ bucket list ideas, there are numerous other activities for you to spruce up romance. 

You can take a cruise and spend a long weekend away from the city or prepare your own beer at home! The more creative and crazy you get, the healthier your relationship becomes. 

Just keep one thing in mind — the focus of all these ideas is to bring you and your partner closer. So, avoid activities that don’t interest your bae or might cause discomfort to either of you.

My biggest advice would be to plan things ahead of your schedule to save yourself last-minute rushed trips that offer no enjoyment.

And that’s it! Be wild, and the world is your oyster!
