How do you spend your weekends?
If you and your partner are like most couples, you might be spending a lot of time working, taking care of the kids, or doing chores around the house.
But what if I told you there was a way to spend the weekend together that would make both of you happier?
Because there’s nothing like a weekend of relaxing with your partner to help you unwind from the stress of work.
Every couple needs a weekend now and then to reconnect.
But sometimes it can be hard to know what to do together — especially if you’re not the most outgoing or spontaneous couple.
Here are ideas for bonding activities that you can do together this weekend.
22 Weekend Bonding Activities for Couples
1. Sleep in
The beauty of weekends is that it’s okay to sleep late.
If you’re not a morning person, then don’t even try to get up early on the weekend.
Skip the alarm clock, and spend a lazy morning together.
Stay in bed until you’re ready to face the day.
2. Have a movie night
Going to the movies is a great way to spend time together and have some fun.
You can even take it one step further by having dinner before or after the movie.
A great date is going to see a movie that you both want to see and then going out for dinner afterward.
It’s not only fun, but it gives you something to talk about afterward.
3. Take a walk together
Go for a stroll through your local park or around your neighborhood.
Enjoy nature while you bond over conversations.
4. Have a picnic
Picnics are one of my favorite things to do with my husband.
We pack up a blanket, some food, and some beverages and head out into nature.
Sometimes we find an open field and other times we park our car somewhere scenic and take advantage of the views.
Either way, it’s always fun!
You can even have a picnic in your backyard.
5. Go wine tasting
Wine tasting is an activity that can take place in any town, even the smallest ones.
There are dozens of vineyards all over the country where you can sample different types of wine and enjoy the beauty of nature at the same time.
6. Watch movies together
It’s easy to fall into a routine of watching TV alone at home but there is nothing quite like watching a movie together on the couch with your favorite cuddle buddy.
It doesn’t matter what kind of movie you choose; whether it’s a comedy, drama, or action-packed sci-fi thriller, there will be something that sparks conversation between you two while watching it on TV
7. Exercise together
Exercising together is a great way to spend time with your partner.
It is also a good way to burn calories and stay fit.
You can go jogging or take up dancing classes together.
This will give you an opportunity to spend time with each other and also exercise at the same time.
8. Go out for breakfast
Breakfast is said to be the most important meal of the day, so why not enjoy it with your partner?
Go out for breakfast on one weekend, grab your favorite newspaper, order some delicious food and just sit down and relax over breakfast together.
This is a great way to start off your weekend!
9. Give each other massages
Massages help relieve stress and tension in the body, which makes them an excellent way to relax after a long week at work.
Giving each other massages can be an enjoyable bonding activity between you and your partner as well as help relieve stress from your body while spending some quality time together.
10. Go camping
Camping is one of my favorite weekend activities because it’s so relaxing and stress relieving — not to mention cheap!
Plus, it’s easy to pack everything up and head out into nature without having to worry about finding hotels along the way or spending too much money on accommodations.
Just make sure you have everything packed up before heading out on your trip.
11. Visit friends or relatives
If you have friends or family nearby, take advantage of the weekend to visit them and catch up on things.
This is especially important if you’ve been feeling distant from them lately due to work or other commitments.
12. Cook together
Cooking can be a fun way for couples to bond over food.
Even if the meal is not perfect, you’ll have a good time together and create memories that last longer than the food itself.
13. Create a DIY project
Another fun idea is to create a DIY project together.
You can make anything from an art piece to furniture.
This will give both of you an opportunity to bond as well as create something beautiful at the same time.
14. Host friends or relatives
If you and your partner like to entertain friends, consider inviting them over for an evening of fun on the weekend.
It’s a great way to catch up with friends and enjoy food over great conversations.
15. Write in your journals together
This activity can be fun because it allows both people to share their thoughts at once – which often leads to interesting conversations later on.
Journaling is also great because it helps us reflect on our lives; it forces us to look back over what we’ve done during the week and think about how to proceed with our other goals.
16. Go shopping together
Shopping is a fun activity that many couples enjoy doing together.
You can go to your local mall or grocery store to pick up some items that you need
17. Go to a sporting event
Going to a game isn’t just about the game: It’s about being together and sharing an experience.
It’s a great way to get back to basics and have fun with your partner.
You don’t have to be a fan of the sport, but if you can find something that both of you enjoy, it’s a great bonding experience.
You’ll get to share the excitement of the game with each other and learn more about each other’s interests.
18. Check out a museum
You don’t have to be art experts or historians to enjoy museums — they’re places of wonder and discovery, and they’re free.
Plus, they’re a great way to spend time together without the distractions of phones or other people’s conversations.
19. Play music and dance together
Music is a great way to be together with your partner and bond.
You can play music and dance together or just sit down in the same room and listen to music together.
It’s a good way to spend some quality time with each other.
20. Stay in bed all-day
It’s not as romantic as it sounds, but staying in bed all day is a great way to spend an entire weekend with your partner.
You can watch TV, eat, read books, or just talk to each other.
This will help you get closer to each other than ever before.
21. Play games together
It doesn’t matter if you’re a kid or an adult, playing games is always fun.
You can play cards, board games, or even video games.
Not only is it fun but it will also help you connect with your partner and have some quality time together.
If you have kids, you can even play with them and create memories for the future.
22. Make Love
This is obvious, but it’s worth mentioning because it’s so important.
Sex is an excellent way to reconnect with your partner and reconnect with yourself.
It’s also a great way to feel more connected physically and emotionally.
And what better time to do that than during the weekend?
23. Pray and study together
Couples who pray together and study God’s Word together tend to have stronger marriages than those who don’t do this kind of thing together on a regular basis.
Prayer and studying God’s Word are important aspects of every Christian’s life, but they’re especially important when it comes to building strong marriages.
So if you want to build up your marriage this weekend, make sure that praying with each other and studying God’s Word is something you do often throughout your relationship, not just during special occasions.
I hope this article helps you with suggestions on how to bond with your partner over the weekend!
