Get the restaurant-feel without the prices, make a delicious meal and set the table with candles and place-mats.
Bag up a picnic and go for a walk
This is a great activity for the summer time. Whether you live near a beach, mountain or the country-side, take some time outdoors.
Go on a hike (perfect in the summer!)
It’s nice to get some fresh air together and spend quality time together whilst getting some exercise too!
Do some cocktail making at home
Have fun experimenting with new flavours or cocktails you have always wanted to try.

Here’s a list of free museums and art galleries in the UK. Spending some time wandering round and talking about which you like best!

This is really fun – you could pretend your designing your dream home.
Go camping for the weekend
Leave the phones behind and have some quality time together.
Do some furniture up-cycling together
If you have some old furniture that needs some TLC, or need to re-paint a room – do it together!
Do some crafts (painting, writing)
Grab some paints. Maybe you could even have a go at drawing portraits of one another.
Have an all-day video-game competition
If you’re into gaming then this can be super fun. Note: it can get competitive!

This is really fun to do and at the end you have a new collage to hang up so you can see the memories every day.
