Spending one on one time with your partner is a must if you want a happy and healthy relationship.
But sometimes, life may get in the way, which is normal. However, for a relationship to thrive, both of you should make it a priority to find time to spend with each other – and don’t just settle with your usual dinner & movie date nights, make them fun, interesting and new from time to time.
If you are looking for an easy weekend idea to recharge, relax and rekindle the romance without leaving the city and spending a fortune, a staycation would be your perfect bet.
Take advantage of the fall season’s beauty and coziness, and plan a memorable weekend with these exciting ideas:
1. A day in bed.
Nothing screams “STAYcation” more than a full day just lounging in bed.
You can get fancy by checking in a hotel or B&B, or you can just opt to stay under the cozy covers of your own bed. If you have kids, make sure to send them to the grannies the night before so you can have a truly relaxing and worry-free weekend.
After waking up from a long and undisturbed slumber, start your day with a breakfast in bed and have movies and snacks ready for a day of laughing, cuddling and snuggling.
2. A romantic picnic outdoors.
Prepare a picnic set with all the essentials (or order yours here) and head to a nearby park. Enjoy the crisp weather while being surrounded with the beautiful fall colors around you, as you and your sweetheart sip on hot cocoa and munch on your favorite picnic snacks.
3. Have a backyard camping staycation.
Another “outdoorsy” activity that you can enjoy is to get into the spirit of camping, without leaving the comforts of your own home. At least you won’t have to worry about electricity, water and a decent bathroom that’s accessible just a few steps away.
Pitch a tent, cook your meals outside, roast some marshmallows, go stargazing, play games, set-up an outdoor cinema – these are just few of the many things that you can do in your own backyard.
4. Have a wine tasting party.
If you and your partner are wine connoisseurs, why not host a wine tasting party for two? Just buy a couple of wine varieties and create your very own appetizer table. Don’t forget to set the mood with a relaxing atmosphere, dimmed lights and good music.
5. Take a scenic drive.
Last on the list is going on a long scenic drive to with your honey, and experience the splendor of the fall foliage. Don’t forget to make some stops to take romantic couple photos.
Don’t let your busy lifestyle stop you from enjoying quality time with your significant other. Make this Fall extra special by planning one or all of these staycation ideas and create new memories.
