Have a dinner night in
One of the most important things about being in a relationship with someone is finding ways to have fun without spending money.

Light some candles, put a fireplace on TV, play some romantic music, & recreate the first time you guys had dinner together.

Play video games
While not every couple plays video games, gaming is a great way to pass the time & have fun with each other! Even if you’re not into video games, step out of your comfort zone & try playing a few of the games your boyfriend or girlfriend enjoys. Whether it’s racing or playing side-by-side to defeat the boss of a game, this is a great way to bond & work together. You can even get competitive & make bets over the games you play & make it mischievous or dirty! Truly, gaming is what you make it & you may be surprised at how much fun you can have when you try!
Make breakfast in bed
Another romantic gesture while at home is making breakfast in bed for your significant other. Think back to a time that your partner did this for you & how happy it made you. Making a simple breakfast can really show your partner how much you care for them & appreciate them & make them feel special first thing in the morning. And trust us, they’re going to cherish a home-cooked meal over a meal out any day.

A couple that exercises together stays together! There’s truly no greater feeling than working out, but especially working out with your partner. Exercising is another activity that you can do daily & from home. And with being cooped up in the house so much, exercise is very important to maintain your health & physique. You two can try out a couple’s workout video on YouTube, or just do your own exercises & push each other to keep going. You should be motivating each other in life already, so why not add exercise to that list. And hey, you get a free gym partner while you’re at it, so really, who’s the real winner?
Start a new TV series
We’re all guilty of laying on the couch & binging Netflix & Hulu more than we’d like to admit (oh, & don’t forget the pizza). If you’re in the mood to have a lazy day (or week), watching a series may be in your cards. But instead of fighting over who gets to watch their show tonight (The Bachelor, ahem), why don’t you & your partner start a new series together. This is a great way to help you guys get sucked into a show together & get cozy on the couch. This will also allow you guys to bond over the show & have something to talk about & to look forward to each week! Seriously, there’s no downside to this!
Stay up all night
Whether it’s binging all the Marvel movies or talking deep about your childhood, staying up all night can be crazy fun. Think back to the days when you guys were first together & how you’d stay up talking all night & try to recreate it! It’s something that we as adults don’t usually get to do, so what’re you waiting for? Wake up that inner child, let loose, & be irresponsible for a night. It’s such an exciting & sentimental way to pass the time & can be so intimate!

Make a pillow fort
Bringing back the memories of our childhood once more, let loose & make a pillow fort with your beloved. Make use of blankets, pillows, boxes & more! You can get super creative with this & have such an amazing time doing it. You could even turn it into a competition & see who can make the best fort & then test it out with a pillow fight! This is a fun way to bring out that inner child & forget the adult worries for a little while. This could also be a healthy way to take out anger from a prior argument, so get ready to rumble! Come on, don’t we all deserve to have a little fun?
Take a bath together
A steamy way to ignite some passion between you two is to take an intimate bath or shower together. This is a great way to make the sparks fly or just add a little spice to your usual routine (hubba, hubba). Whatever it is, this is a great way to explore each other deeper & pass the time in a delicious way!

Dance or Karaoke
And lastly, we have to throw in some dancing & karaoke! Even if you aren’t a good dancer or singer, this is a great time to have some fun & just let loose! Put some music on, pop some bottles & have some fun! If you want to get more serious about it, look up some YouTube videos on dances to learn & try to follow along! No matter how you do it, this is a great way to create some of your favorite memories (just make sure your camera is ready!).
