    19 Simple Things That'll Help Keep The Spark Alive In Your Relationship

    Being locked in can make things boring, but fret not! Here are some ideas.

    1. Make your bed and refresh it with a geo safari-themed duvet cover. Nothing will make you want to nap together (or take a tumble in the hay) like a neat, clean, nice-smelling bed. It’ll also add colour to your room in a subtle, but modern way.

    2. Take out time to meditate together with some calming cedar oil incense sticks that'll help lower your stress and put you at ease, so you can shoo away the bad energy. If you're both working from home, this may help diffuse the WFH crankiness we're all starting to experience.

    3. If you're stuck having to live away from each other, try this pair of synchronized long-distance lamps. They can tap theirs to let you silently know they're thinking of you. You'll watch the lamp glow when they're missing you, too! 🥰

    4. Sync parts of your workout together. Pick up matching Nike Air Zooms specially designed to make running more comfortable, so you can both go for a double sprint. Somehow, having someone else do cardio with you makes your WAY more motivated, right? So lace these babies up and hit the pavement to make some #powercouple move.

    5. Cook together with a subscription to HelloFresh! You’ll receive the best fresh ingredients pre-portioned for every recipe, delivered right to your doorstep. The bonus is being able to skip anxiety-riddled trips to the grocery store! You'll both have a delicious dinner ready in no time, so it's date night every night.

    6. Make up for missing your salon appointments by scheduling a hydrating hair mask that you can do together at home. This blend has fig extract and baobab oil to tame frizz and soften your locks. You know at least one of you is always neglecting their strands, and now that we're all at home, there's no excuse to skip deep conditioning. Put the hair mask on and sip some wine together.

    7. And while your hair is conditioning, put on some gel-based honey mask that'll rescue parched skin from the first use. Honey is believed to help sooth inflammation, so not only will your skin be calmer afterwards, it'll be so soft, you won't be able to stop touching each other's face.

    8. Get your wine glasses out and upgrade your drinking experience with a wine dispenser and aerator. It'll let you enjoy an ever fancier version of your favourite reds. Just insert the bottle and press the button to get rich-tasting vino whenever you miss hitting the bars together.

    9. Treat your under-eye skin with some hydrogel eye patches, because you've probably been marathoning your favourite films till the wee hours of the morning, and your eyes are stressed. Not only will these rehydrate and de-puff your tired peepers, they'll also make you want to take the cutest #SpaDate pics for your Insta.

    10. Have a bouquet of flowers delivered to them to keep things classically romantic — yes, even if they live with you! They’ll probably find it cute, and it’s the twinkle in their eyes that you’re really after, isn’t it? 🌹🌷🌺🌸

    11. Make morning showers together more fun with a large rain-style shower head, so you're not fighting your partner in a race to rinse out shampoo. Yes, there's enough room for two people under there!

    12. Follow with a heart-shaped brekkie using this mini waffle maker to let them know they'll always have your 💖. The cooking surface is nonstick and easy to clean, and the machine comes with a recipe guide to help you go on your at-home morning dates.

    13. Make your partner's eyes pop cartoonishly out of their sockets by putting on a sexy baby doll and G-string set. Or buy one for them! It has underwired cups for some extra lift, and the beautiful eyelash lace detail on the edges amp up its come-hither factor.

    14. Do a home improvement project together and install some tropical wallpaper that'll bring lush, mood-lifting greenery to your home, without the responsibility of taking care of plants. It's reminiscent of a summer holiday and will photograph beautifully. On top of all that, it's also eco-friendly!

    15. Use a box of matches to "spark" romance when you run out of romantic ideas. Each match has a tip written out on it that’ll woo your partner and make them melt into mush.

    16. Try a couples kit to reignite passion in the bedroom. This one comes in a cute washable bag and includes a rechargeable bullet vibrator, two aloe-based lube samples, two lubed condoms, and a couple pairs of cozy socks, which you may end up knocking off each other by the end of the night.

    17. Or try something you unexplored, maybe with a luxury bondage kit. It includes a tickler, blindfold, and restraints to help you and your partner switch things up and up and up.

    18. Give each other a relaxing back massage using a special massage candle. It will release a blend of soothing essential oils that'll sink deep into your partner's skin under the warmth of your hands. Plus, it has light notes of lavender and smoky wood.

    19. And lastly, give couples yoga a go — grab two cushioned yoga mats that’ll make sure you don’t give up. (That first sesh was harsh on your knees and elbows!) It'll be a calming team activity that'll leave both of you feeling mentally and physically refreshed.

    Good luck bring back day-one butterflies!
