Paint your room together to create a comfortable and romantic atmosphere, tailored to the two of you. Choose the colors that both of you like and gear up to paint the room. Wear old clothes that you do not mind getting dirty; pick out brushes and a ladder to cover the higher areas of the walls. This will allow you to share your ideas and make compromises and adjustments to cater to the likes and dislikes of each other.

87. Make Ice Cream

Homemade ice cream allows you to customize the dessert according to the flavors you prefer. Prepare a fresh batch with ingredients at home or freeze readymade mix-ins. You can experiment with flavors and then host a blind tasting to surprise each other. Add toppings and syrup for a yummy end to the day.

88. Organize A Book Club

If both of you are serious book lovers, you can hold a book club session. Here you can discuss the book you are currently reading and your views on it, and your favorite parts of the book as well as what you think about the author. You can also organize a book-related trivia game and ask questions about some common books you have read.

89. Host Your Own Olympics

If both of you are sports enthusiasts and occasionally enjoy demonstrating your competitive edge, this is the perfect activity for you! Divide the house up into different areas such as the kitchen, drawing room, stairs, laundry room, etc., and each of you pick equal numbers of such areas with one common area designated to both. These are the designated areas where you will set up a small obstacle course for the other, at the end of which will be a reward. The idea is to complete all obstacle courses before the other person and get to the final common area to retrieve the final reward.
