Love is in the air, and Valentine's Day weekend is upon us! If you're like me, you're so over the typical Valentine's dinner and a movie. The restaurants are all so crowded, and they usher you in and out as quickly as possible. Rushing out on a work night and trying to make everything feel so romantic can almost feel forced - there has to be a better alternative!
We have an idea if you'd like to try something different this year. Cancel the fancy restaurant reservation, and put away the slinky dress and high heels. Make a unique, personalized date for the two of you in your hot tub! It's easy to pull off with just a little bit of planning. We've gathered a few tips and ideas to get you started.
The romance begins with a courtly gesture. Put together a memorable invitation that builds interest and anticipation. The ASK is more than just a simple proposition. It's all about the presentation and packaging, and asking your special person to join you for a romantic night in.
Like any good invitation, be sure to include a specific date, time and location. Make it as formal or personalized as you want. Any gesture from the heart is sure to be well received. To kick it over the top, name the evening according to a theme. "Evening Under the Stars" or "Hot Tub Heaven" will help generate more excitement and enticement. It will also help you in planning your date, branding the evening as though it were at a resort spa or an exclusive tropical hideaway.
The gift comes before the big event, so it's actually a pre-gift, given at the start of the evening. Choose a sweet and thoughtful gift that's related to the theme or your evening plans. As mentioned above, the gift can be combined with the "ask" in many clever ways.
The pre-gift is an important part of the evening's allure. It doesn't need to be extravagant, nor does it need to be "store bought." Remember, the presentation of the gift is key. It's not so much what's in the box, but how you wrap it and present it. Be sweet!
Setting the mood for the evening is also key. The hot tub is a natural mood setter, and adding little touches here and there can help make it more romantic. Use a few decorative elements or some personal touches to really make your spa area more inviting. Here are a few ideas on how to set a romantic tone around the hot tub.
Having a few conversations starters ready to go can help keep things light and fun. Playing "Remember when...?" or dreaming together about exotic travel plans are two good starters. Exchanging back, neck and shoulder massages is another great way to get relaxed and enjoy your time together.
For snacks in the hot tub, I always recommend fruits and veggies, especially colorful berries and fruit wedges. Avoid any greasy foods or dips. Just some brightly colored fruits, best enjoyed au naturel. Here are some more romantic ideas for dining on Valentine's Day.
Don't be afraid to heat things up this Valentine's Day - or any day, for that matter! Your hot tub is the perfect way to spend quality time with your significant other and personalize it for just the two of you. This Valentine's Day is sure to be a day to remember.
