It has been autumn for quite a while and at least where I live autumn equals rain. Lots and lots of rain. Because of that I decided it might be fun to share some date ideas with you guys for those days it’s way too rainy outside to go out and do something. If you’re interested in finding out which ideas I came up with, make sure you continue reading!
1. Netflix & Chill
The first and most obvious idea I came up with is watching Netflix together. There is nothing my boyfriend and I love doing more than just casually watching Netflix. This could range from watching a TV show to a documentary or a movie, whatever the two of you like.
Something my boyfriend doesn’t enjoy doing as much as I do is organizing and cleaning. It might not be the most fun activity but especially if you and your boyfriend live together it might be nice to spend your day giving your house a make over.
Baking has always been one of my favourite things to do. Luckily for me my boyfriend enjoys it just as much and therefore we frequently decide to go ahead and bake something. Of course you can bake something that comes in a package and only requires you to mix in some butter and water, but I think it’s even more fun if you make something from scratch. So go ahead and look up an incredibly delicious recipe, get some ingredients and get baking!
The same thing goes for cooking. I’m a better at baking than I am at cooking but I do enjoy to cook every once in a while and make something really nice and special. If you do this together as a date-activity it might be nice to make something super fancy and special but you could also just go for pancakes. That’s totally up to you.
I personally never really play boardgames, but I do really enjoy playing them. If you can’t come up with anything go ahead and choose one of your favourite boardgames and play it together. Boardgames are always fun and it kills some time.
6. Go to a cafe
This next idea does require going through the rain for a couple of minutes, but I think it’s worth it. If you don’t feel like sitting at home all day you might want to go to the nearest little cafe, drink some coffee, eat some cake and just talk together. Especially on a rainy day I think that’s a great idea!
7. Play videogames
My boyfriend really enjoys playing videogames. Normally I’m not a huge fan of those, but every now and then I like to play one with him. It’s fun for your boyfriend, it might even be fun for you and it’s always better than doing nothing!
8. Get crafty
If you’re dating a more crafty guy you might enjoy doing some DIY’s together. I always enjoy making things and I usually do it with my mom since she’s way more precise than I am, but it’s also a great idea to craft something with your boyfriend.
9. At home workouts
If you’re a more sporty girl you might enjoy doing one of those at-home couple workouts you see on youtube and pinterest. It’s a great thing to do since you’re being healthy and active and it’s always more fun to do things like that with your boyfriend than they are when you’re alone.
10. Just chill and order some food
My last idea is another one of my favourites. It’s very basic and not really unique but you could also just chill all day and get some take-out like pizza or chinese. You could just talk all day, maybe throw in a little videogame or an episode of your favourite show and you’re good to go!
And that concludes today’s post. It was harder than I expected to come up with 10 ideas but I did it. I hope they’re somewhat helpful to you and be sure to let me know what you would do on a rainy day!
