I love date night with my husband. It’s a great time to spend together without any little ones climbing all over us. We get a chance to focus on us. Unfortunately our budget doesn’t always allow for us to go out. So instead we choose to have our date nights in. We put the kids to bed and take time for us, without TV or the computer distracting us.
I’m going to be starting a new series where once a month I’ll be sharing a fun and creative date idea for you. Most will be date nights in for the reasons stated above, but I will also include some fun ideas for going out!
Today’s date is all about pampering each other. Now I’m sure we would all love to be able to go out and have a real spa day together but for most of us, it’s out of our price range. But you can bring the spa to your home!
First I created a little brochure for our Spa d’Foster. Inside I included a little mission statement and then all the services offered at our spa. Our spa serves food as well so on one fold I included a small menu. I wish I had a file for you so you could print one for yourself but unfortunately the file was on my stolen computer…
A small list of services offered:
- Pedicure and manicure
- Essential oil bath
- Relaxing facial
For the various services I just went through our house and grabbed supplies. I like to get samples so this was a great way to use them. I don’t have a foot bath so I got our largest bowl and filled it with warm water. My husband got a massaging cushion for his birthday one year so I had that set up to go while we had our foot baths. Add a heating pad to our shoulders and it was relaxation heaven!
You could really be creative with what you do. I had fun going through what I ad and coming up with things. We did satin hands, made pore strips and used them and put on mud masks, and gave each other massages. My husband was a really good sport and willing to try things. We had so much fun talking and enjoying each other’s company. The best part was making each other happy, as cheesy as that sounds.
So what amenities would your spa include? What are some of your favorite date nights in?
