Couple's Bucket List Ideas You'll Want To Add To Yours!

Unlike a traditional ‘to-do’ list, which is usually constrained to a context such as work or chores, a bucket list allows you to explore all aspects of your life, big and small.

How To Create A Bucket List For Couples

Creating a couple’s bucket list is an enjoyable way to spend an at-home date evening. Compiling a list will solidify your joint ambitions and highlight the areas you have in common. This can help you bond and plan for the future.

A rewarding relationship will be based on all the experiences and memories that you create together. Planning your future adventures and events to look forward to will help you get to know each other better as a couple. Your list should bring you significant clarity in your relationship. 

Your bucket list can be as fun or serious as you wish, but it should contain items where you are both in agreement. Try to include as much variety as possible. Your bucket list should be a set of enjoyable goals that ignite a passion. Assembling a list of everything you want to do before you die may seem morbid at first, but you should think of it as a plan of all the future highlights you hope for in life. Some aspects you may wish to get started on straight away, whereas others on your list may be things you want to accomplish years from now.

Couples Bucket List Ideas

Your list should be unique to you as a couple, but here a few ideas to get you started!

  • – Travel- Travel is always no.1 on the majority of bucket lists! Perhaps there is a city, landmark or country you have always wanted to see. Pick places that excite both of you. Include as much detail as possible, like activities you will do, landmarks you will visit and even dishes you would like to try! Not sure where to choose? Add taking a random trip to your bucket list for a truly exhilarating experience! You could take a pin out and place it at random on a globe or in an atlas. Or you could show up to the airport and book tickets for the next available flight. 
  • – Marriage- For unmarried couples- perhaps this is a conversation you have already had, or if you are a newer couple, something you have shied around from!  Getting married is a common entry on bucket lists. Ensure you are both on the same page and have a mature conversation. It’s a pretty exciting one to add to your joint bucket list! You could even go a step further and talk about when you anticipate marriage happening for you, or where you would like to get married. 
  • – Children -Again, whether you want children is one of the significant issues couples face. If you do both want children in the future, it’s a thrilling life goal to add to your list. You could even have fun discussing how many children you want to have, and play around with baby names!
  • – Housing- Many people will have to improve their living situation on their wish lists! This could be something small like getting a new sofa or re-decorating your bedroom. Some couples may have larger housing goals, such as getting a larger property or even moving somewhere wholly new altogether! These things take time and financial planning so ensure you have a clearly defined goal and time scale.
  • – Career- It is essential as a couple that you understand and support each other’s professional goals. Ask each other how you can help and discuss what challenges you may find along the way. Many couples prefer to keep their personal and professional lives separate but discussing your career aspirations can deepen your connection and understanding of your parner. 
  • – Financial- Money is the number one cause of arguments and break-ups amongst couples. Avoid falling into this trap through clear communication and honesty. You may have financial goals to add to your bucket list such as paying off a debt or having a specified amount in your savings account.

  • Fun Activities – Although your bucket list should include some more serious, long-term goals, make sure you create some fun entries too! These may include activities and dates you have always wanted to try together.

    Some ideas you may wish to include:
    -A spa day or couples massage
    – Take a dance class
    – Try karaoke
    – See a show or concert
    – Visit a museum or art gallery

  • Personal- You may have personal or health goals which are shared as a couple. This could be for you both to lose weight or cut down on your alcohol consumption. Many couples have intertwined routines and develop similar patterns regarding health, food and activity. This means you are more likely to achieve your goals in these areas by committing to them together and holding each other accountable. Other personal bucket list goals may be to improve on a skill, such as cooking, or participating in charity or volunteer work. Personal aspirations may also include qualifications.
