Entertainment and Indoor Ideas for Couples

Are you searching for ways to strengthen your relationship with your partner? If so, you’re not alone. From work duties to juggling our personal lives, it can be easy to miss out on quality time with the one you love. And if you have children, it adds an extra layer to the time pressures. 

But scheduled date nights aren’t always ideal. These can come with pressure to plan the perfect time together. However, if you have a random day coming up soon where you’ve not got anything planned and you’re both at home, it’s worth considering what you’d like to do. 

For inspiration, take a look at our guide to gifts and entertainment ideas for couples. These are designed to give you a chance to enjoy each other’s company without stepping a foot outside.


There are plenty of games you can try with your partner. Here’s a roundup of the ones that could be perfect for you. 

Video games challenge

Do you both enjoy computer games? Or maybe other interactive games are up your street? You could both pick up a controller and play that game you used to enjoy together. Or try something a little different by diving into online bingo games. These digital platforms offer a variety of themes and formats, from classic bingo to more adventurous variations. 

Whatever games you try, you can enjoy a night of light-hearted competition and bragging rights.

Puzzle games

If you’re after something a little more old-school, dive into the world of puzzles. You could try a classic jigsaw puzzle featuring a destination you’ve visited together or perhaps a brain teaser that challenges you to think outside the box. 

This might be a little more laidback than online gaming, but it offers a peaceful yet engaging way to spend quality time together. Take the time to catch up and reconnect as you play. 

Board games

Ahead of your day together, research two-player board games. These give you the opportunity to focusing on strategy, cooperation, or a healthy dose of competition. Whether you’re rebuilding civilisations or competing to create the most beautiful garden, these games promise a fun-filled evening.

Craft projects for two

For artistic couples, a hands-on craft project can be a great way to while away a few hours together. Pottery making or model building could be ideal for brushing up on your creative skills and giving you a chance to work together as a team. 

Alternatively, you can enhance your home décor. This it your time to paint the chest of drawers or repurpose your dining room chairs. Work together to create something special for your home. 

Learn something new

Choose an online class or tutorial you can do together from the comfort of your home. Whether it’s cooking, dancing, or learning a new language, it’s a productive and enjoyable way to spend your time.

Or you might want to do a quiz. There are online quizzes that can give you insights into your personality as well as lighthearted ones and classic trivia. 

How will you spend time with your partner?
