A home spa date night is one of the best ways to enjoy quality time together! Whether you’re celebrating Valentine’s Day or just looking for a fun home date idea, a relaxing night in is the perfect way to reconnect with your significant other.
Relaxing at the spa is a great way to spend date night. But there’s no reason to book an appointment at your favorite spa when you can create your own personal retreat at home! With these romantic spa date night ideas, you can put together a night of rejuvenation and relaxation for you and your significant other without ever leaving the comfort of your own home.
Set the Mood
It can be hard to fully relax at home if your house is full of distractions.
To create a truly relaxing atmosphere for your date night, it’s a good idea to start with a clean space.
Whether you’re hosting your at-home date night in the bedroom or bathroom, make sure the room is clean and clutter free.
After that, take the time to set the mood for your at-home spa retreat.
Start by turning off your phones and putting them away so you can be fully present. Then, add a relaxing soundtrack to your spa with the help of ambient music or relaxing nature sounds.
Finish preparing the space by dimming the lights.
You can add ambient lighting with the help of candles, allowing you to keep the room semi-dark while still being able to see each other.
Make an At Home Spa Kit
With the help of a spa essentials kit, you can be sure you’ll have everything you need for a relaxing evening at home with your significant other. And the best part is that you can customize your spa kit to suit your own preferences and activities to create a unique experience!
Depending on the spa treatments you plan on doing at home, you could include some (or all) of these ideas:
- A basket or carrying case to hold everything
- Bubble bath
- Bath bombs
- Body lotion
- Massage oils
- Face masks
- Body scrubs
- Salt scrubs
- Essential oils
- Oil diffuser
- Foot soaks
- Eye mask
- Bath salts
- Foot massager
You may also like to make your own DIY face masks.
Don’t Forget the Snacks and Drinks
You can’t enjoy date night without some food!
Stick with the spa theme by enjoying bite-sized treats, like mini cucumber sandwiches or veggie wraps. Or try serving more romantic snacks, like chocolate covered strawberries, for a sweet treat that’s easy to eat without making a mess.
In addition to your favorite snacks, make sure to have date night drinks on hand, too.
Champagne or a bottle of wine are both great options for a home spa night. Or skip the alcohol and enjoy refreshing fruit infused water to help you relax together.
One of the best parts about enjoying a day at the spa is a relaxing massage. Instead of hiring a masseuse for your date night, why not learn how to give a massage yourself?
Head to YouTube to get some free lessons on how to give a good massage and watch them together so you’re both in the know. After that, you can practice the techniques on each other.
As you’re getting ready for your spa date night, make sure you have these things for your massages:
- Towel or sheet to protect the area from getting damaged by the oils
- Pillow to make it more comfortable
- Massage oil
Start by laying the towel or sheet on the bed, then have your partner lay down on top.
Give them a pillow to support their head during the massage.
After that, follow the instructions from the video and take turns giving each other a relaxing massage.
If a full-body massage seems too intense to try, why not try a nice neck or hand massage?
Also, many licensed massage therapists offer couples massage packages where they come to your home if it’s in your budget!
Get a Facial
While you might not be able to give each other professional facials at home, there’s no reason you can’t enjoy taking care of each other during your at-home date night.
With the help of a relaxing face mask, you can enjoy a refreshing facial at home while you enjoy each other’s company. Use a pre-made mask or a sheet mask for easier prep.
You could also whip up your own homemade face mask like this DIY aloe vera mask.
Enjoy a Long Soak
Relax and unwind during your next date night with a hot bath and low lights.
It’s easy to turn your bathroom into a relaxing spa retreat if you have a few essentials on hand. Start by making sure your tub is nice and clean.
It’s also a good idea to place some fresh towels in the room so you can easily grab one when you’re ready to get out of the bath.
After that, adjust the lighting by adding some aromatherapy candles to enhance the mood.
When you’re ready, run a hot bath in the bathtub. To ensure your bath has extra hot water, try pouring in a pot of boiling water around the surface of the tub to warm it up before running the faucet. And make sure to run the water as hot as possible out of the faucet. (You could also just use warm water too if you have sensitive skin).
Mix in some Epsom salt and relaxing essential oils.
You could also choose your favorite bubble bath to add to the bath. After that, all that’s left to do is relax together and enjoy each other’s company.
