List of Best hobbies to do as a Couple

You know, some good hobbies for couples always involve having fun with your beloved partner, which is absolutely essential for making your relationship last long. As you get out of that honeymoon stage, it may feel as though your relationship slows down a bit and gets a little boring. Feeling bored doesn’t actually mean you don’t love your partner anymore. It is probably just the right time to embrace something new and interesting to do as a united couple.
This is why some hobbies for married couples will help you saturate lifestyle with a lot more fun. Both of you may be into your individual hobbies, but that does not mean you shouldn’t take part in something mutual. Not only will you have an opportunity to appreciate each other on different levels, but a common hobby will also keep your relationship fresh and fun through many years.

What’s more, doing the same thing will give you some new things to talk about. It could give you and your partner a fresh perspective, too.
If you are already curious to know, run through the following hobbies for couples that you can try out starting from now. No doubt, those from will bring you two closer together.

#1 Dancing
If this doesn’t bring the two of you together on both physical and emotional levels, nothing else will. You don’t need to be the best dancer on the continent in order to take ballroom dancing lessons, for example. As a matter of fact, it is way more fun if you completely suck at it! This puts your teamwork under challenge and increases your intimacy.

#2 Bowling
If you got some friends dating or in relationships, establish a Couples Bowling League. It’s always a fun way to escape the four walls of your house and contribute to each other’s growth as a couple.

#3 Gardening
Yeah, gardening is one of the best hobbies for couples, which does involve some painstaking work, but it can actually be real fun. You can plant some fancy flowers together or you can plant and grow your own organic food. Learning this essential life skill is pretty much rewarding and a whole bunch of fun.

#4 Rock climbing
Since it usually takes a few people to go rock climbing, having your lover along will be the best part. You’ll get a 2-in-1 – a workout to take up and get to spend some time together.

#5 Cooking classes
This one is among the most entertaining and useful hobbies couples can do together. You can sign up for a ton of various cooking classes and it’s another excellent way to upgrade your teamwork skills and prepare some delicious food as well!

#6 Hiking
If both you and your lover are pretty much of an outdoorsy type, this hobby is an absolute must. Having a chance to enjoy nature and wildlife with a beloved person by your side can be really beneficial to your relationship.

#7 Photography
This one will engage your creative part of mind and also help the two of you build a solid connection. You can even compare pictures you’ve taken and swap tips in the process of learning.

#8 Astronomy
The night sky spangled with millions of stars is ultra romantic and amazing. If both of you share a love for those things, investing in a decent telescope and going out to stargaze at nights will be perfect as it can be both educational and romantic.

#9 Extreme camping
Well, basically, you head straight into the wilderness and survive a few days without electricity or running water. It might seem really nerve-wracking, but can teach you a lot about one another.

#10 Blogging
Why not start a video blog? Before you do, think of the topics you’ll discuss and then get the idea embodied and both contribute just for fun.

#11 Collecting stuff
Having even a pair of the same things actually means you can start collecting them. It can be hats, coins, some other antiques and really whatever you both can go out and bond over.

#12 Surfing
If you’re literally dying to try out something new or both of you are already into surfing, go do it together! You will be getting a workout, catching some tan, and laughing at each other’s wipe outs at the same time!

This is a very classy hobby for romantic couples. You will play against one another within some friendly competition or you can challenge other couples. In one way or another, you’ll grow closer and have a mass of fun.

#14 Working out
You know how it is – a couple that works out together, stays together. This not only keeps you in great shape, but remaining an active person has been widely known to boost the sex drive, too.

#15 Learning a new language

This hobby may be beneficial in so many ways! It can be both quite amusing to study together and master up something you can use later, too.

How to Complete Return Request from Jet via goFlow

In this guide, you will learn to accomplish the following things:
- Check customer return items in Jet Order
-  Review all Jet's return merchandise in goFlow
- Receiving the return in goFlow and to complete the return
In Amazon or eBay, all the return request and refund features are accessible within the seller dashboard and everything can be processed in just a few seconds, however, in contrast, when you are using Jet Order platform, these features don't come very handy.  You need another tool like goFlow to process the refund of the return merchandise.
1. Login to Jet Partner Portal as seller:

2. Make sure your Jet Partner is set to Live not test mode.
3. In the dashboard, go to Orders > Returns tab

4. Select one of the returns and verify each Tracking Number ( copy and paste the tracking # to carrier's website to the track the package).
Tracking return item in FedEx

5. Verify if the item has been delivered back to your warehouse and get the merchant SKU.
6. Login to goFlow and go to Returns and search the merchant SKU (choose Item Number as the filter).

7. Once you found the order, open it and in the right corner, activity section click Receive.

8. Enter the number of the Received item by clicking the "+ " icon and click Next.

9. Click Save and the return status will become “Return in Full". –This means the return is already complete and customer refund has been issued.

Don’t be surprised. Searching the specific return in goFlow takes patience when there are other returns with same merchant SKUs. You need to go through each return and determine which one you're actually looking for by comparing quantity and item cost toe to toe. Also, you can’t use customer name or order # to search in goFlow.
If you accidentally close the return in goFlow, you can still re-open it by contacting the goFlow’s marketplace support team.
