A video game marathon
We know men love to play video games. So, be a part of his favorite hobby and play as many games as you can against each other. Keep a score of those games and promise not to get too competitive because it will lead to senseless arguments.

A picnic indoor

If you both want to get into shape but are too lazy to hit the gym, then start a home workout routine together. You will have each other as your motivator to push you for exercise. This way you will be burning calories while having a good laugh.
Create a game
Create your own game, be it your drinking game or your own sport. You need not go logical, as it will be more fun if it does not make sense. Write down the rules so that you can play the game again.
A YouTube video
Prepare a video that you can upload to YouTube; you can reenact a movie scene or perform a dance routine or anything. It might be a total fail but you will have fun and re-watch it in your future. You might even start your Vlogging channel.
A cooking competition
