You must have gone through a tedious week at work. You had no time for your partner, and you are thinking of making up for your absence by doing something romantic for them on the weekend. Here are some unique, romantic ideas for you to try out with your partner.

Go to the market.

If your partner generally handles shopping for house needs throughout the week, do it together this way. Go to a farm and pick up fresh fruits and vegetables together. Or, buy things to level up your house decor. This will help you spend more time together and also share responsibilities.

Go hiking.

Step out from the chaos of city life once in a while and spend a weekend together in the wilderness. Go hiking and spend some quality time out on a field full of wildflowers and lakes. Let nature heal your stress and anxiety and help you reconnect with each other.

Cook a romantic dinner together.

If both of you are passionate about cooking, you can spend quality time on weekends by cooking a nice meal together. Choose a recipe that you haven’t tried out before and make it together. Since cooking takes some time, it can be a fun way to have good moments together.

Do a romantic movie marathon.

Do you have a list of films you have been planning to watch ever but couldn’t because you were busy at work? Well then, use your weekend to have a movie marathon. Get some pizza, cuddle up in bed with your partner, and watch all your favorite movies back-to-back.

Get food delivered.

If you know a nice spot nearby, pack yourself some lunch on weekends and have a small picnic with your partner. Just go to a park, spread a blanket, and eat some sandwiches while listening to music or reading a book. Connect with each other through nature and embrace solitude.

On weekends, you can take a cooking or painting class with your partner. You get to explore your creative side and spend time with your partner. Our work life often leaves us no time to cultivate our passions. So, weekends can be a great way to revive the lost touch.

Go salsa dancing.

Salsa dancing is special because it is very intimate and passionate. So, on Sunday evenings, you can take salsa classes and dance your heart out with your partner. It works even better if doing this is making you step out of your comfort zone. You get to do something new.
