It can be really easy to fall into a routine, making our lives feel a little boring, and there’s no shame in that! But there are certainly ways we can spice it up. 

Table of Contents

If your relationship is feeling a little repetitive and you’re looking to try new things, then consider making a relationship bucket list – bucket list ideas that you can do together. 

A bucket list is simply a list of things that you’d like to achieve or experience in your lifetime, and it’s always a good thing to work towards a goal; what’s even better is working towards those goals with a partner. It’s certainly a perfect way to spice up the relationship and to help reignite sparks of excitement.

85 Fun Bucket List Ideas for Couples 

You might be wanting to do something crazy, or even just a little fun. There are thousands of bucket list ideas for couples to choose from!

1. Go on a skydive 

Go crazy and jump out of a plane with your significant other. A sky dive is something that is on a lot of people’s bucket list, it really is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. And if you’re a little scared, you can always opt for indoor skydiving.

2. Go skinny dipping 

Strip down to your birthday suit and go skinny dipping with your partner. Just don’t blame me if you get caught.

3. Go on a road trip 

Some people say you’ve not lived until you’ve experienced a road trip. Rent a campervan, blast your favorite music and get lost on the road.

4. Binge watch an entire series in a day

I said fun, not crazy. For some, it can take weeks, or even months to finish a series. Get snuggled up on the sofa and binge an entire series, order takeout and escape from the rest of the world for a day.

5. Try an escape room 

Test your skills and see if you can break free from an escape room. Teamwork in a relationship can send sparks flying. 

6. Try a tandem bike ride 

Every couple should at least once go on a tandem bike ride. 

7. Go wild camping 

It’s not always necessary to plan things. Be a little reckless for a few days, get a car, buy a tent, and see what happens. 

8. Go on a hike 

Climb a mountain and reach the peak with your loved one. 

9. Try a couples workout class 

I know workouts aren’t always fun, but believe me, a couples workout can be both fun and sexy.

10. Go to a music festival 

go to a music festival

It’s pretty common to go to a music festival with a group of friends, but have you considered just going with your partner? It’s so fun! 

11. Visit the grand canyon 

A must see, and a famous bucket list idea. 

12. See the Seven Natural Wonders

Connect with nature, and connect with your partner traveling around the world to see the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. 

13. See the New Seven Wonders 

The New Seven Wonders are arguably just as good as the first ones, in my opinion, so both are a must see on any decent bucket list. 

14. Do a karaoke duet 

Sing your wedding song, or scream from the top of your lungs to Beyoncè. You can make it as fun or as romantic as you’d like.

15. Book an all inclusive resort 

Some say you haven’t truly lived until you’ve gone all inclusive. 

16. Go to an amusement park 

Ride every single roller coaster in an amusement park. Another great idea is to visit an amusement park every time you visit a new country. 

17. Go on a surprise trip 

There are many ways to plan a surprise trip. You can go into a travel agent and ask them for a complete surprise, you can play a game of elimination until you find your destination or you can completely surprise your partner. 

The best part of any person’s adventure bucket list has to be a surprise trip, talk about being spontaneous!

18. Fly first class 

Flying first class isn’t exactly affordable, which is why it’s great for a bucket list idea. If you’re on a budget when traveling, just once try to fly first class, just for the experience. 

19. Visit all the continents 

Some people’s bucket lists include ‘visit every country’, and, by all means, do that! That would be absolutely incredible. But, to make it a little more realistic, let's aim to visit every single continent, then you can technically say you’ve seen the whole world. 

20. Go ice skating 

Ice skating is fun, but what’s even more fun is where you do it. Natural ice skating would be amazing, as would ice skating in New York City during the holidays. Everybody has a different preference.

21. Go scuba diving 

If you’re lucky enough, go scuba diving in the Great Barrier Reef. Climate change is a huge threat to the Great Barrier Reef, and although it is still incredibly vulnerable, it’s slowly improving. 

22. Book a surf lesson 

For me, you haven’t lived until you’ve stood up on a surfboard. It can be super difficult so it’s always best to book a lesson, it’s so fun and definitely the best way to learn how to surf.

23. Ride a gondola in Venice 

A must-have on your bucket list, you really do have to see the beauty of Italy; what better way than on a gondola in Venice? 

24. Find the Loch Ness monster

Loch Ness is one of the many beauties of Scotland. Have you really lived if you’ve not looked out for Nessie at least once? I went a few years ago and unfortunately nothing, but maybe you and your partner will have better luck.

25. Spend a few months working away together

Don’t let your commitments take over, if possible, take an absence of leave from your work and go and live and work in a different country with your partner. There are lots of countries that have visas making this completely accessible. 

A holiday is great, but actually spending time living in another country is just an out-of-this-world experience; it’s so refreshing to see such a different outlook on life than what you’re used to back home, and it’s such an amazing experience to have with your partner, too. 

26. Visit the world's oldest tree 

For some, this may be a bit random, but I think it’s so cool! Imagine being transported back through history by simply looking at an old tree. It’s definitely a unique bucket list idea. 

27. Visit every Hard Rock cafe

Or any chain that’s known to have restaurants all over the world. 

28. Go see a show on Broadway 

Or if you’re closer to England, the West End. 

29. Win big at the casino 

Of course, you can’t exactly guarantee a win, but one can dream.

Speaking of casinos, everyone has to go to Vegas at least once, right?!

Travel up to 200mph on a bullet train in Japan.

And take cute pictures. However, always make sure to visit an ethical organization.
