February is officially here, which means that Valentine’s Day is once again right around the corner. If you’re like a lot of Americans, you may be opting to avoid the crowds and stay at home this year with your loved one.
If that’s the case, you might be wondering what you can do to make the night extra special. Well, if you’re the proud owner of a hot tub, you’re in luck! Here are five sensual date ideas your significant other is sure to love.
1. Surprise them with a breathtaking sight
Before you do anything else, you should first determine if your special Valentine’s date is going to be a surprise or not. If it is, there’s no better way to reveal your romantic hot tub setting than by removing a blindfold.
If it’s not going to be a surprise, we recommend writing your significant other a handwritten invitation. A poem is optional, but do try to avoid being too cheesy if you can.
Another tried and true Valentine’s Day favorite you could incorporate is a trail of flower petals leading up to the steps of your hot tub. Just be sure that your loved one would find this romantic and not overly cliché.
2. Get them in the mood with romantic music
Music is a must for any romantic date night. You can choose to play a premade romantic playlist on a streaming service like Spotify or Pandora or curate your own using some of your favorite love songs.
For the best sound quality, you’re going to want the best entertainment system. Fortunately, many of our newer Cal Spas models come with a Freedom Sound System which features a powerful subwoofer, built-in Cube speakers, and Bluetooth technology so you can control everything from the touch of a smartphone.
3. Soothe their olfactory senses with aromatherapy
Adding a soothing aroma to your Valentine’s Day experience is a great way to take your relaxation to the next level. We really like these ½ oz. pillow packets because they come in a variety of scents, and contain vitamins C & E, as well as aloe extracts and hair and skin moisturizers.
PLEASE NOTE: Many bath bombs and other aromatherapy products are not designed for use in a hot tub. Make sure you only use products that specifically mention they’re safe for all acrylics, jets, pumps, and filters and won’t change the water chemistry in any way.
4. Tickle their taste buds with a tasty treat
Step up your game with some light bites to share, such as strawberries, hummus, a meat and cheese tray, or sweet cheesecake bites. If you’re feeling a bit more ambitious, you could even prepare a full meal to enjoy al fresco before or after your soak.
Wine or champagne is also a natural choice—just remember to also have plenty of water on hand to stay hydrated. If you don’t already have a handy side table tray, we highly recommend you pick one up ahead of time.
5. Maximize their comfort with a relaxing massage
Your Valentine’s Day date is never complete without some hands-on fun. Arguably the best way to do that is to treat your partner to a nice shoulder massage to help them unwind and relax.
If massages aren’t your thing, there are plenty of fun hot tub games and activities you could try together. Or take turns daring each other to do something crazy like sing at the top of your lungs or roll around in the snow.
