Happy new year, y’all. We’re scooting into 2022 with a healthy dose of optimism and revitalized spirits. In our true fashion, we’re stoked to bring folks together safely and intentionally. Below, we’ve compiled a list of activities and have thrown in solo time ideas as well. Enjoy!
Enroll in a cooking course or set aside time to try out that seemingly complicated recipe you’ve had your eye on.
Dig up your pool shark persona or discover that they’ve been there all along.
Go on a hike. Whether the trail’s around the corner or a long drive away, submerging yourself in nature alone or with company is a surefire way to bring your spirits up.
Make a trip out of thrifting, checking out neighborhood antique shops or estate sales without any expectations.
Visit a botanical garden or animal sanctuary.
Dress up in your most elaborate and decadent outfit just to take care of a mundane errand and pay attention to how your attitude shifts.
Try out a mobile / in-home massage service, or set the scene and exchange massages with your partner or partners.
Learn a new dance or movement technique, paying mind, and learning about the cultures and historical context behind it.
Have an indoor picnic, and make it as minimal or as maximalist as you please. Alternatively, if you want to step it up, this can be turned into a stay home campout complete with blanket fort and s’mores.
Embark on a virtual visit to a museum or art gallery. Throughout the pandemic, more and more spaces are featuring virtual tours through their collections. The Met, the British Museum, Museo Frida Kahlo, Museu de Arte de São Paulo, and the Louvre are all potential options!
Dive into a movie marathon, with healthy doses of movement in between. Feeling nostalgic? Pick out a series of old-school films. Are you more on the retrofuturist mood spectrum? Sit back for a sci-fi kick.
Dig up dusty board games, decide on one to play, and bring out your inner child. Up the stakes by hosting a tournament?
Plan a trip, short or on the longer side, to discover new sights and gain a fresh perspective. Check out accommodations, find spots that peak your interest, and bookmark it all so you can make it happen in the near future once it’s safe to do so.
Sign up for a charity challenge and have someone share the training with you to keep you both accountable. There are many marathons, bike rides, walks, etc., to find so you can keep yourself working towards something great while helping others.
Host a karaoke night, where you can perform all of those songs you’ve been practicing and holding onto.
Explore yourself and each other by making one a replica of your penis or vulva into a sex toy using one of our DIY Molding Kits!
Think about what really inspires and motivates you while being alone and while spending time with others. Based on what comes from that, plan future dates and make it happen.
