Spa centers can be pretty expensive and very hard on your home budget, but that doesn’t need to stop you from the idea of a perfect spa night together with your partner. You can both organize it, but also, you can make a surprise for your significant one. There are plenty of ideas on how can you make it at your own home, without having to pay too much in a specialized center. Also, the opportunities are limited, but that doesn’t make the idea impossible.
If you want a next-level experience, you can rent a hotel room or a cabin, and then proceed to organize your perfect date night. You don’t need to wait for Valentine’s Day or your anniversary to have an exceptional romantic evening.
Here are a few ideas about how to schedule this wonderful evening by yourself or together with your partner:
1. Schedule the day
It can be every day that fits your busy schedules. If you want to make a surprise to your partner, you better discreetly ask when they are free, so you can manage your plans. We know that we are all busy with our work time, and the COVID-19 pandemic is still causing a lot of stress and anxiety. The idea is to relax with the person you love. Everything that comes to your mind is allowed, including erotic massages, face masks, feet treatments and pedicure, bath soaking, watching a movie, drinking your favorite beverage, and of course, cuddling in the bed. Take your time to make a proper research and save some ideas on Pinterest or Instagram. You will find a lot of them, that you can fit in your home, or the apartment or cabin you rented for this purpose.
If you both are included in the plan, it will be easier to find the best day for your private spa treatment. You need to be relaxed and use every idea that you think will be perfect for this date.
2. Organize your spa kit
This doesn’t need to be something very special. Find your best towels and keep them warm during the date. Buy a nice smelling shower gel or bubble bath. You can change your ordinary bulbs with colorful ones, or choose a nice candle to make the atmosphere more romantic and sexy. Couples that are in love enjoy romantic evenings, but it’s always nice to organize this special evening. If you want to make something interesting, you can choose the popular bath bombs that you only need to put in the bath and wait for them to make a luxurious foam and release their aromas in the air. You are getting extra aromatherapy with this.
Candle lights are also nice if you want to use diffuser oils. Choose the aroma, you both love. At the very end, you also need to have some bottle of body lotion or oil, for the nice massage that will relax you both. You can also include some nice exfoliating sponges, or prepare the peeling bars by yourself using melted soap, grounded coffee, sugar, and honey. These ingredients can have a lot of benefits for your skin.
Another option is to buy a ready-to-use kit from a perfumery shop or order it online. These baskets usually have everything you need for your spa date with the partner.
3. Take care about the mood and atmosphere
This is maybe the most important part of the whole idea. First, low lights will make your room or bathroom look more comfortable and luxurious. If you can’t lower the lights’ intensity, you can use candles instead. Semi-dark rooms are always better for this kind of date. Keep the bedroom clean and organized, because probably you will both rush there right after the spa treatment.
In the meantime, choose a proper playlist or turn a Chillout Radio on to make the mood better and relaxed. The music choice is important, so you need to find some chill tracks or radio, so the rhythm won’t distract you from the relaxation.
Add some scented candles or oil diffusers, because nice smells are great to free your mind from any stress and anxiety. Choose vanilla, lavender, lemon, or sandalwood. These aromas have a therapeutic effect on your whole body. Try to match them with the body lotions and shower gels you use.
4. Don’t forget about the snacks
This doesn’t mean that you have to cook meals the whole afternoon but feel free to choose some snacks and beverages, so you can relax better. That can be some mini-sandwiches, candies, your favorite dessert, and a nice glass of wine. If you don’t drink alcohol, you can choose some juice, smoothie, or even a relaxing and calming tea. Don’t eat greasy food, because after you are relaxed, your digestion is slowing down and you’ll not be able to do anything than sleeping right after the spa session.
5. Choose a good movie to watch together
You surely know your partner’s taste in movies, or you have a favorite one you both love to watch. Today you have a lot of stream services like Netflix or Amazon Prime with a lot of good movies. Or, you can even watch the latest episode of your favorite show together. Also, there is nothing wrong to skip this part and go right to the bedroom action. One thing is for sure – your partner will love this, no matter if you decided to surprise them or you both scheduled this date night.
The next morning you will both be more calm and relaxed, especially if you have a stressful job. Many times we lose nerves on unimportant things, forgetting about the people we love and that means a world to us. Very often we are missing the importance of spending quality time together, thinking that we will have more time for that in the future. But, the truth is that life is short and we need to use every spare moment we have to rest, and then spend time with the people we truly love.
