It feels so good when you check off a list of completed goals on your daily list. It is even better when you successfully complete life achievements like going to college, getting married, becoming fluent in a language, etc.

There are so many things I have on my bucket list for this year and in my life in general. I plan to visit all seven continents and am on my way to making that happen sooner than I thought. Well, it turns out that having a bucket list can also work between two people.

Most people have a list of things they want to do, places they want to visit, and items they would like to obtain. I bet that you have a list of things you would love to do with your significant other.  So in this article, we will explore these ideas by talking about 105 items you can add to your relationship bucket list.

But first, let’s start with a simple definition.

What is a Bucket List?

When people think of a bucket list, they often imagine a massive list of all the things one wants to do before dying. A relationship bucket list is slightly different.

It's a smaller and more cheerful version of a list that can inspire both partners in a relationship to add excitement and make memories together. It can also serve as a reminder of pressing things to do in relation to health, housing, and retirement.

Your bucket list does not have to be set in stone. As you grow as a couple, make the necessary changes as you evolve.

Here are some ideas for things you might want to put on your own personal couple bucket list!

Benefits of Having Bucket Lists for Relationship Goals

Bucket lists are extremely versatile. Make them for any occasion, whether it is a wedding weekend or an anniversary. You can have bucket lists specific to each holiday throughout the year, or just have them all together in one long list.

One of the biggest advantages of creating a relationship bucket list is that it gives you and your partner something to plan for. Even just thinking about making a bucket list together can be exciting and take some pressure off other things in life.

It can give you an excuse to take a day trip somewhere or go out on a spontaneous date. It can also give you an idea for something new to try in your relationship together.

The bucket list itself is like a record of things you've done, but it can help you remember the things that were most important to you both. So create one and put it somewhere where you will both see it every day.

Final Thoughts On Your Relationship Bucket List

Bucket lists are great to make together because they force you to get out of your comfort zone and try new things. Most importantly, you have an opportunity to spend time with your partner in a fun, creative way. If there are items on the list that are romantic or sexy, all the better!
