Do Everything For Them
Spend an evening where you do everything for your partner. Cook supper, do the laundry, do the dishes, clean the house, do all the chores, pick the weeds, or run a bath for them. Just show your partner they are special by really going out of the way to make as little work as possible. This is really appreciated after a long work week where your partner was stressed. Get them a beer, or a cocktail. Give them a massage. Just make the entire day about them. It will really make them feel special and they are sure to return then favor.
Spend an evening putting together a puzzle. It can be a relaxing, stress free way to spend time together. It can become a group activity where you spend a bit of time each day just chatting about your days and putting a puzzle together. Pick something easy, or pick something hard. Just pick something you and your partner will not get frustrated with. Pick a puzzle with a photo that relates to your relationship and when you finish the puzzle reward yourselves with a baked good, some intimacy, or whatever you want.
Arts and Crafts
An art class can be a fun activity. Learn to make pottery together, paint together, draw together and if you feel confident, take an art class where you draw each other naked. That can be highly erotic. Art is great because you can make each other a gift. You can make your partner a vase, or a cup, or a garden stepping stone. You can paint or draw something to show your love, or how attractive you find them, or to remember a special moment you had together. Art can let you communicate in a new way and spur your creativity.
Take dance lessons together. Oftentimes, dances have you and your partner very close together. Lots of moves involve touching and can be quite sexual. Take salsa, ballroom, hip hop, whatever. Dance can also help your communication. The old saying is “it takes two to tango” and it does. You cannot dance alone. The experience can bring the two of you together. It also gives you something to show off the next time you are at a wedding or with friends. Knowing how to dance is rare these days and oftentimes I hear people wishing how they wish they knew. Look around, oftentimes you can find dance groups in your community that are quite cheap because they are volunteer run. Dancing is surprisingly difficult and can provide some good exercise while having a lot of fun at the same time.
Buy a fancy bottle of wine and drink it together. Pair it with different cheeses and breads and vegetables. It can be fun to spoil yourself with something fancy. Light a candle, talk with accents, there are lots of fun things you can do with a bottle of wine. It’s a great opportunity to focus on your relationship. Buying a fancy bottle of wine just makes you feel luxurious and like you are spoiling each other. Or go for a wine tasting tour. This is a great chance to learn more about wine and how to pair it with dishes for the next time you have a dinner party. Oftentimes you are supposed to spit the wine out, but if you drink it, you can get a nice buzz and enjoy a lazy, sunny day getting drunk together, laughing uncontrollably, and meeting new people.
Exercise is something we all tell ourselves we should do more of, but it can be hard to do so. But if you exercise together, it can really add motivation. When your partner is lazy, kick their butt. When you are lazy, have them kick yours. As you get in shape, you will find you have more energy and just feel better. You can push yourselves too. Motivate your partner to do that extra 10 pounds, or that extra half mile. Stretch, run, lift weights. When you are in better shape, you can do more in the bedroom too. When you are stronger and more flexible, new positions open up that can add excitement and novelty to your sex life. And your partner tightening up a bit never hurts either. That extra bit of weight loss can really make you hot and horny for your partner. Getting fit is just a lot more fun with someone you like.
