15 Fun Things to do with your Husband at Home

When we moved from Florida to Georgia, I knew one thing for sure...say goodbye to date nights. In Florida we only lived 10 minutes away from my parents, so if we wanted to have dinner or go see a movie it was pretty easy- now we are in a state with no family and no one that we know well enough to watch the girls. Sometimes that's really hard, but I have for the most part gotten used to it. My hubby works all the time from early in the morning until late at night and I work from home, but my shifts are also late so we only get our together time on his days off or if we stay up really late (which is usually what we do). Whether or situation is similar to mine, or you are just looking for some fun things to do with your partner, this list will definitely help!

1. Cook together

It doesn't have to be dinner or anything fancy. It can be fun just being in the kitchen together baking some brownies or making a cake.

2. Watch a stand up comedy

This is kid of our go-to on Netflix, because sometime we watch different show or don't have time for a movie. Stand up comedy will have you laughing together while you relax. (Probably a good one for after the kids go to bed)

3. Play a board game

It could be something easy like checkers or a fun adult game like Cards Against Humanity. Even a simple deck of cards would give you a lot of different options!

4. Take a bath/shower together

For us it would have to be a bath, because our shower is wayyy too small for both of us haha. Again, this is about spending time together so it doesn't have to be fancy. We use our Bluetooth speaker to put on some music and maybe have some wine or even a beer-whatever you like.

5. Make a fire

Depending on the weather, of course a fire can be a nice way to relax together. My favorite thing to do with a fire is smores! But, not everyone has those items handy-so you could drink coffee, tea or hot chocolate. Just the two of you outside talking.

6. Have a "fancy" cheese and wine night

This one might take a little prep before hand. My hubby did this one night on his way home- He picked up a bottle of wine and prosciutto wrapped cheese and some crackers. We had a nice time sipping our wine and having a little snack.

7. Play a video game

Does your husband have a XBOX or PS4? Play a game with him, even if you don't know how I'm sure he would have fun showing you and you might kick his butt! Guitar Hero and Just Dance are fun too!

8. Play the "question game"

This is something I suggest doing a lot because I like it. All we do is take turns asking each other questions about different things. We have done this so much it's hard to think of new questions. If that is your problem do a test to see who knows who better.

9. Dream house hunt

Look online at dream houses. Show each other features you do or do not like. What is on your "must-haves" list? What would you do with each room? What kind of furniture would you get?

10. Make a fort

Everyone loves a good fort. Now that you're adults with bigger furniture and more blankets this could be epic, right??

11. Have a photoshoot inside

Get dressed up and have fun with your self timer taking "prom" pictures. Go goofy and wear each others clothes. Make photo props. Wear sunglasses and hats. BE CREATIVE it's just for fun!

12. Let him do your make up

Some guys might not be into this- and that's ok. If you can get him to do this, it could be a great laugh and probably produce some awesome pictures.

13. Have a "spa night"

Know any good DIY face masks or scrubs? Maybe those funny sheet masks Have fun goofing off and making a mess. Maybe he could paint your toenails or maybe he will let you pluck his eyebrow, err, eyebrows ;)

14. CLEAN!

I know, you're like "wow, she's really struggling to think of stuff towards the end", but I'm so serious. Sometimes we are just too tired. There are definitely days like that!! But, other times we actually have fun--yes, FUN, cleaning up before bed. We do this dishes- he puts them away I put the new ones in, or we fold the massive piles of laundry that seem to never go away. Having someone to help or laugh with make this more fun and go by quicker.

15. Scrapbook/Pictures

Ok, so if you or you guy are not into scrapbooking, you could go through some old photo albums, yearbooks, or even pictures on the computer. Nostalgic :)
