If gays know anything, it’s coming up with fun ideas to freshen up their relationship. However, that usually happens after many months or years of being together in a relationship. This is a reason why we came up with amazing ideas for doing something new and fun in your relationship, and here are a few that you will definitely like!

6 cool and original date ideas to heat up your relationship this winter

1. Netflix and chill to the fullest

Probably the best idea for spending a date night is next to your TV watching all your favorite TV shows or movies while in your underwear (or perhaps without any?), and thousands of people decide to spend their date night in this manner. However, you can give this night a certain topic or a theme, and deciding to watch a gay-themed TV show or a movie might be a great idea. If you’re spending the night with your boo (or a friend with benefits), even better – the gay scenes might give you something else to think about and make the night even more interesting!

2. The rather romantic option

Date nights are definitely not for partying, but rather for staying in or simply connecting with your significant other in other ways. A great idea would be for the two of you make a fancy meal, light some scented candles and enjoy yourself to the fullest. Having romantic moments from time to time is extremely important, and choosing the last day of the week for this will not only make you happier and the relationship healthier, but it can do wonders for your mood – so this is a good way to recharge your batteries for the upcoming week!

3. Sweet tooth

Who doesn’t have a sweet tooth? Pretty much everybody does. Choosing to host a gathering (it could be a date night as well if you’re in the mood) where you will make great cookies or cakes – or even order some if you have something specific in mind. Moreover, if you’re a coffee drinker, you can also bring coffee to the mix, so serving good coffee from a high-quality espresso machine will definitely make your night even better. The combination of cakes and coffee is always excellent, and it’s a great aphrodisiac as well. There’s something to think about.

4. Drinking game nights

Let’s say you spent your Friday and Saturday nights in, or at different dinner parties and you didn’t get drunk or relax at all? If you’re not working, or have flexible working hours, then your choice should definitely be to have a couple of gay friends over and have a drinking night. In order to make this more interesting, you can find a plethora of drinking games online that will help you freshen up your relationship, or go with something more original, such as the Super Mario drinking game – you get to play one of our favorite childhood games and drink at the same time with your friends. Sounds amazing, doesn’t it?

5. Touchy touchy at the cinema

Even though this is nothing revolutionary, spending your date at the cinema is a perfect thing – you get to go out of the house, watch a movie while relaxing and eating popcorn or nachos. If it’s a date with your boyfriend – even better. You can choose the least popular movie, and have a bit of action while there’s no one around you. However, you will always find something interesting to watch, especially in the months to come when you will have the chance to watch some of the best pictures of the year (Academy Award season y’all!)

6. Taste some wine

If you happen to have a winery nearby, or you know that a wine tasting is being organized somewhere in the vicinity, this could be a great way to freshen up your relationship, obvy. Mind the doses, though, as you don’t want to go to work hungover in the morning!

7. You never get bored with board games

As far as board games are concerned – there’s a plethora of options to choose from and you will definitely not get bored. So, if you don’t know what to do on a lazy night, invite a couple of friends over and quarrel a bit over a game of Gay Monopoly, Homogenius, or any other gay-oriented board game. Also, if you’re all Game of Thrones fans, you can play the Game of Thrones edition of Monopoly, which is super popular at the moment. The winner can get John Snow for the night, so get ready to nail this!

8. Let your booty do the yoga

In the wise words of Janelle Monae, yoga is always a great option, and a very sexy one for that matter. Book a class where you can practice couples yoga, or do it in the comfort of your own home if you have the option and you know what poses you should be doing. This is a great way to take the stress out before starting the new week, and it’s also super healthy (and you know that we gays have to pay attention to staying fit and healthy!)

9. Have wild sex

Is there really a reason for us to elaborate this option?!

10. Add a touch of color to your relationship

Finally, you can decide to spend time with your man coloring some adult coloring books, sipping a glass of wine and just talking and laughing the night away. Staying cozy, feeling comfortable and loved and actually doing the things that don’t actually require anything physical is a great way to freshen up your relationship!

Ta-da! You have ten gay options, so you definitely need to pick one to go with. No matter which one you choose, you will definitely have a great time. After all, it’s the people you’re spending your time that’s important, not how. But please let us know what you chose and how it turned out (especially if it’s number 9!)
