While it may be fun to watch a movie together or go to your favorite restaurant every Saturday night, relationships can become tedious if there is a lack of novelty in the ways you choose to spend your time together.
What happens when you guys feel stuck in a rut? What happens when your relationship becomes a routine instead of a romance?
Let’s look at some of the ways you can kick boredom to the curb and do things that will entertain your boyfriend and put life back in your relationship.

1. Have a Video Game Marathon
Most guys would make playing video games their profession if they could, so playing video games with him is a great way to entertain your boyfriend.
Keep score with a whiteboard or a piece of paper, and then play as many games as you can against one another! From Call of Duty to Tekken, there’s something for everyone.
Playing video games with your boyfriend will make him see you in a whole new, sexier, way.
However, promise each other that you will not become too competitive; otherwise, you will end up in a pointless argument.
2. Trivia Night
If going out for dinner has become duller than counting to 100 backward, you can spice things up by heading to a local bar or restaurant’s trivia night.
Unless you try it out, you’ll never know how brilliant (or horrible) you are at it. In addition, a little proper competition in a relationship is beneficial.
3. Do a Cook-Off
Having a cook-off with your lover is a terrific way to hone your exquisite cooking abilities while also getting competitive!
You can spend the evening browsing through the grocery shop in search of unique ingredients.
When you reach home, you can each choose a course and prepare your meal.
To make it more challenging and give it a Master Chef vibe, assign a dish to each other and cook it within a certain amount of time. The exciting competition will make the meal that much more enjoyable and eating together even more relaxing.
Make the ideal foods for an ideal evening!
4. Workout Together
Many people report that working out with their spouses makes them feel considerably more energized.
If you and your lover enjoy working out together, you can plan new workout routines to try out together.
Put an end to all of your ridiculous fitness excuses and put on your running shoes!
You can try out new exercises, listen to some amazing music, and become each other’s at-home gym buddies. A nice sweat session is always a great idea and can be done quite easily at home.
5. Finish a Puzzle Together
Puzzles are a great way to keep your mind stimulated and one of the best things to do with your lover when you’re bored.
If nothing else appeals to you, a puzzle may be the answer.
Working on a puzzle together on a leisurely Sunday morning is a terrific way to start the day, and it’s also a great rainy day romantic idea!
Jigsaw puzzles are no longer solely for children. There are many intricate, fun options available that keep grownups occupied for hours.
This can be an effective way to bond as a couple and stimulate your intellectual connection.
6. Plan a Spa Day at Home
A small, improvised spa at home can do marvels for a pleasant night in. This is one of the nicest things to do with your lover after a long week or on a leisurely weekend afternoon.
If you’ve had a long, grueling day, a home spa is a terrific way to relax and unwind.
To make the spa session more authentic, go shopping for body oils and scented candles.
Take turns massaging each other, and time will fly as you immerse yourself in his pleasure.
7. Enjoy a Session of Strip Poker
Playing a few sessions of strip poker with your guy at home is one of the craziest (and fun!) things you can do with him!
Strip poker will undoubtedly result in a steamy night.
If you’re not poker fans, that’s ok, any sensual game will do. Just be sure to play slowly and really build the sexual tension until you can’t help but rip his clothes off!
8. Redecorate a Room
If you are looking for something fun to do that is also practical and shows how well you work as a team, then there is nothing better than redecorating a room.
You could redecorate a room in need of some repairs and fixes or move some furniture around to make some room for daily activities.
Whatever you choose to do, the important thing is to enjoy yourself and get creative!
9. Listen to an Audiobook or a Podcast
Snuggle up on the sofa and listen to an audiobook or podcast together.
Choose something amusing to bring a little happiness into your life or something inspirational to help you grow as people and as a couple.
10. Fill the Tub with Bubbles
Bubble baths make everything better, whether you’re tired or not. You may buy a bath bomb or utilize some bubble bath gel.
To add to the ambiance, crack open a bottle of wine.
There’s nothing a good bath can’t fix at the end of a very long day.
You can spend that time talking about your day or simply holding each other and letting go of your anxieties – certainly one of the most enjoyable things to do at home with your boyfriend.
11. Take a Trip Down Memory Lane
You’ve spent several years together and will continue to do so in the future. Take a little time to reflect on your lives as a couple.
Take a look at your first images together by scrolling through your smartphone, Facebook posts, or Instagram photos.
Look back fondly about all of the activities you’ve done and the locations you’ve been throughout the years. If the reminiscing inspires you to make some fun future plans, all the better.
12. Practice Some Yoga
Starting a yoga routine with your boyfriend is a great way for you both to stretch, relax, and unwind.
You can even find YouTube channels with tutorials for yoga that are specifically designed to do with a partner.
Yoga is universally acknowledged as a spiritual as well as a physical practice.
Yoga with your partner can strengthen your spiritual intimacy and help you feel connected to each other. And as an added bonus, yoga is linked to a better sexual life!
13. Make a Trip to Your Partner’s Hometown
Exploring memories with your partner, reaffirming your commitment, and visiting meaningful and formative places for your partner are just a few things to invest time together in while also strengthening your relationship.
If you are looking for something exciting to do, visiting your partner’s childhood city and their home is a terrific idea.
You will learn so much more about them this way and get a front-row seat to see how they have changed over the years.
Swap hilarious childhood stories or treasured family recollections as you explore their old haunts together.
14. Night at the Movies
If you and your partner enjoy viewing movies, this may become a weekly event. You can individually pick a film to watch together.
This is a great way to get to know your partner’s film preferences and for you both to share something new with each other.
Try something new every week, whether it’s Shrek, Inception, or Interstellar, and discuss it with your friends.
15. Paint Together
Getting your hands filthy, with paint, is a great way to kill boredom. Get creative and bring out your wild side.
It doesn’t matter if it’s surrealism, impressionism, or just basic stick figures. You don’t have to be dating Monet to let out your inner artist.
Fill your canvases with bright colors and frame the best ones to hang on your wall, or get a little cheeky and experiment with some body painting…
16. Watch a Sports Match
You and your partner can arrange a game night at home if you both enjoy sports.
You can create the ideal game night atmosphere by dressing up in jerseys and setting up your home to look like a sports bar.
This is a fantastic way to entertain your boyfriend.
Root for your favorite team, whether it is the Chicago Cubs or the New York Mets.
Fun tip: To create a bar-like atmosphere at home, get some Buffalo wings and beer. Make a big effort for the teams you support and have a good time cheering them on together.
17. Create Some Amusing Videos
This is a fantastic alternative to your regular, run-of-the-mill dates, especially with the abundance of content-creation apps available. Make reels, short clips, or vines with TikTok or Instagram.
Get goofy and creative and explore new areas in your city to make the videos even more special.
There are a lot of couples these days that have shared pages on the internet, and they usually have an insane amount of followers!
If that’s not your style though, you can also make them for your own entertainment, similar to home videos.
Because screen-based pastimes are rarely shared, this is one of the finest things to do with your partner.
18. Binge Watch a Show Together
We live in a golden age of TV, and you should make the best of it.
Binge-watching a TV show with your partner is a wonderful, shared activity that you will both enjoy.
Set aside a specific amount of time each day to binge-watch and relax on the couch.
Re-watch chosen episodes of a show you both adore or do a full session of one season in one sitting.
Laughing together is a fantastic way to boost your connection and connecting over a show will give you two something to get excited about together when the new seasons are about to be released!
Keeping a journal of all the fun moments in our lives is a compelling way to keep a token of the past with us.
Get a scrapbook, print a few images, and unleash your inner DIY mastermind. The options are unlimited when you have sequins, feathers, stickers, and glitter on hand.
Scrapbook about your relationship, all the things you have done together, and all the things you plan to do in the future.
If scrapbooking isn’t your thing, you may always build photo albums that don’t require as much creativity.
Keep track of significant dates and activities so that you can go back to them later!
20. Get to Know Each Other Better
It may sound boring or stupid, but individuals in relationships can get stuck in a rut where they no longer make an effort to get to know each other.
Yes, you discover something new about your partner every day, but there’s still a lot more you don’t know.
Why not sit in front of one another and ask each other ridiculous questions to learn more about each other?
If you could only have one superpower, what would it be? What would you do if you could have any job you wanted without worrying about money or education? These are only a few examples; have fun!
There is a reason to celebrate your relationship every single day. The goal in life is to cherish the mundane and the special moments.
Make a note on your calendar to commemorate your first date and other big milestones in the relationship.
Commemorate small milestones too, like your partner’s promotion or your volleyball team winning a tournament.
We tend to brush these everyday life events under the rug but celebrating them as they happen is another way to honor yourself, your partner, your family, and the life you’ve built together.
