Rather than blow through your cash on flowers that will die and a dinner out that will (most likely) be underwhelming, get something you both can share — an at-home spa date.
While you might be cringing at the idea of staying home, it comes with a wide variety of benefits, including the ability to focus all of your attention on the one you love. You don’t have to worry about who might see you sneaking in an extra kiss (or other things). And, you can spend as long enjoying each moment as you want because no one will be hoping to turn the table or squeeze in an extra session.
The key to a successful at-home spa date is to set the mood. The following gifts will help you bring another level of romance and intimacy to your time together. Because after all, that’s what it’s all about — spending time together.
Loaded with pitera — a hearty broth that’s loaded with amino acids, proteins, and organics — these award-winning Japanese sheet masks are specifically designed to promote cell renewal. They’re praised for their ability to boost your skin’s natural moisture without leaving you greasy, while also helping to restore firmness and elasticity.
Yes, we told you to skip the flowers. But, this bath bomb set is so much more than flowers. It’s a luxurious surprise that’s intoxicatingly fun. Plus, because the box comes with three different bath bombs, you can keep the party going for more than one night.
Rose Quarts (the ultimate stone of universal love) and Amethysts (which promotes balance, tranquility, and peace) are combined with Tuberose (a natural aphrodisiac) in this heavenly combination. Simply spray this beautiful mist throughout your sleeping chamber to help set the mood and create a sense of awe.
What brings the perfect warmth to a brisk evening? Some bourbon. Which is why the Bourbon soaked Vanilla candle by Kobo is the perfect addition to any evening where you’re hoping to cuddle up close. These soy candles come in an elegant clear glass vessel, ensuring you also get the benefit of natural candlelight during your spa date.
Sure, you could splurge on a fancy spa treatment. But the whole point of an at-home spa date was to take your time and be on your own schedule. Plus, when you get a luxurious body scrub like this Invigorating Coffee Body Scrub with Coffee and Lemon from Palermo, you can indulge in some “us time” again and again.
Loaded with caffeine to help firm your skin’s elasticity and promote the growth of collagen, it’s also packed with sugar to help gently exfoliate. Shea butter and coconut oil have also been gently infused to nourish your skin, making this the ultimate way to create a soft and desirable touch.
A Luxurious Bathroom Robe
Love to cuddle post-bath? Does your lover hate getting up in the middle of the night because they’re too cold? Do you two like to lounge around and enjoy leisurely mornings together? If you answered yes to any of the following, a bathrobe is a necessity. Explore our favorite bathrobes and find the perfect robe for you and your other half.
In addition to soaking, spritzing, and exfoliating, make sure you’re ready to massage. You want to select a lotion that will keep your skin hydrated, supple, and smelling great — without leaving you feeling like a sticky mess. That’s why we love Sabon Body Gel in Citrus Blossom. The gel-like consistency of this light-moisturizer helps the skin rapidly absorb the moisture from the gel’s avocado oil and Aloe Vera extracts. Plus, it’s infused with a delicate scent that delivers hints of citrus to keep you both feeling fresh.
