A couples relationship should be filled with experiences that create wonderful memories, bring them closer together and nonverbally say “I love you”. This Couples Bucket List of things to do will help with ideas to start designing your life together.

1. COUPLES MASSAGE
A couples massage is one of the hottest treatments at luxury spas all over the world. What could be more romantic than lying side-by-side with your significant other in the most relaxing environment?

2. WRITE A LOVE LETTER
Let’s bring it back to old school; the days where letters were handwritten, sealed with a kiss and mailed at the post office. Love letters are a physical memory that will last a lifetime. Need Help? Add one of the 52 Incredibly Romantic Quotes.

3. COOK DINNER TOGETHER
Food and romance have be linked throughout history, mix in some intriguing conversation and you have the best date night ever. The dishes that you create on this night will become a significant part of celebrating other events in your lifetime. Get some inspiration from these 17 Romantic Dinner Recipes.

3. HAVE A PICNIC
Break out the old picnic basket for this Couples Bucket List idea, pack your favorite bottle of wine, pick a secluded outdoor getaway and create a memory.

4. STAY UP ALL NIGHT, LAUGHING
There are many reasons that we stay up all night, how many of them include just laughing?

5. SING A KARAOKE DUET
12 years ago, my husband and I sang “Summer Nights” from Grease at a local Karaoke club. Though the musicality left much to be desired and they actually turned the volume down on my microphone, it is an experience that we still talk about today.

6. CARVE YOUR NAMES INTO A TREE
I typically would not recommend defacing a living object, but in the name of the Couples Bucket List, I will have to break this rule.

7. DRESS UP FOR HALLOWEEN
Fairy tales can come true, at least on Halloween. What could bring a couple closer together than looking completely ridiculous as a team? To give you a few ideas, Cosmopolitan came up with the Cheesiest Couples’ Halloween Costumes.

8. KISS ON TOP OF THE FERRIS WHEEL
Some of the most romantic movies feature a smooch on the tippy-top of the Ferris Wheel. Pretend you are in your own movie.

9. WATCH THE SUNSET & RISE IN ONE DAY
You might be able to complete this one as well as, #3 {Have a Picnic} & #4 {Stay Up All Night, Laughing} all in one day! Now that’s the ultimate in Couples Bucket List multi-tasking.

10. CLIMB TO THE TOP OF A MOUNTAIN
Tackle hiking the highest mountain…together. You could possible complete bucket list goal #3 (have a picnic) while you are up there!

11. HORSEBACK RIDE ON THE BEACH
No doubt you have seen the abundance of advertisements featuring a couples romantic horseback saunter alongside a white sand beach. Why not recreate this ad for your own Couples Bucket List?

12. CREATE A MUSIC CD OF YOUR RELATIONSHIP
Compile all the songs that have meaning to your relationship and put them on a cd. You can make it a ritual to listen to the tunes on each anniversary.

13. MAKE LOVE IN AN INAPPROPRIATE LOCATION
An airplane, park, public restroom…that’s up to the two of you.

14. TAKE A BUBBLE BATH
Bubble baths are not just for the kids, they a relaxing for the adults too and a fabulous way to get closer to your partner. Add a bottle of bubbly and it is a must for your Couples Bucket List.

15. JUMP OFF A CLIFF INTO WATER
Grab your partners hand, plug your nose and take a leap of faith…together. But, make sure it is in a safe location!

16. LEARN TO TANGO
Learn, what is said to be, the most romantic dance in the world.

18. TANDEM BIKE RIDE
Pick a beautiful afternoon to take a tandem bike ride along a peaceful path.

19. RECREATE YOUR FIRST DATE
Remember the events of your first date and try to recapture it. Duplicate everything from the clothing to the foods to the place.

20. KISS IN THE RAIN
Forget the umbrella for this couples bucket list idea and step outside in the rain to give your partner a romantic smooch.

21. SPEND THE NIGHT AT A B&B
A must on your Couples Bucket List is to spend a romantic night at a quaint Bed & Breakfast. It doesn’t even have to be far from home, but pretend like it is.

22. HAVE BREAKFAST IN BED
It doesn’t matter who cooks it, but indulge in some waffles, eggs and mimosa’s while still cozied up in your bed.

  1. I love those ideas! We've done some already, but they're certainly worth repeating ;)

  2. Jade says:

    I love these ideas- esp. sing karaoke together!! My boyfriend is a musician so he is always singing- but I think that would be awesome.  Everyone should feel a little silly sometimes!!

  3. Gayletrini says:

    Love this Love this Love this!
    Can I reblog this post PLEASE :) or can you guest blog on this topic on my blog :D

  4. Hi! You can absolutely repost it, just give me & my blog a credit link.
    Thanks for the kudos!

  5. Alicia says:

    I need you to post this one on my webpage. You're awesome!!! (I really need my boyfriend to read it, sounds better coming from someone else.)

  6. Thanks! You are more than welcome to post this list on your site as a “guest post”. I would just need a teensy-weensy credit and link to my blog. I think it would be great, let me know.

  7. Stefanie says:

    These are great ideas. Everyone needs to break out of a relationship "rut" every now and then and these would be perfect! I've done 7 of these, if carving our names into wood at a bar (we were allowed) counts for carving our names into a tree!

  8. Wow! Seven is really good! 10 more to go ;)

  9. Nina says:

    I'm surprised at how many things we've done already! Great list…

  10. My husband and I haven’t completed everything on the list…yet!

  11. Nina says:

    We have done 9 of them… Getting there. I need to print this teehee

  12. I'm thinking of buying dancing lessons for Xmas for my hubby, because he's Argie and doesn't know how to tango! What a shame!! I'm liking #13! ;-)

  13. I wish I could get my hubby to even contemplate dancing. He says that we have been married long enough, so he doesn’t have to dance anymore! Gotta love him :)

  14. Kerry says:

    I love these couple lists. It is important to grow and experience new things as a couple. I completed a few of these in my last relationship, hoping to have more experiences such as these in future. I don’t have a choice with Number 18 because I am unable to see and therefore unable to bike any other way.

  15. I have been married almost 17 years and have realized that having new experiences has really kept our relationship strong (& fun). But, there are still so many more things we can do together!
