21 relaxing ideas for spa date night for couples
1. Start by setting the mood
This got to be the number one step to your cozy, sexy date. Take the help of relaxing music and some scented candles to help you both get into a zen-like state of mind.
2. Create a DIY face mask
Sometimes, a homemade facial mask can help take your relaxation to the next level.
I’m sure there are tons of recipes online for DIY masks using ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen.
For a quick and easy option, try mixing honey, yogurt, and lemon juice; or for something a little more indulgent, mix avocado, egg yolk, and olive oil. Apply your mask of choice to clean skin, relax for 20-30 minutes, then rinse off with warm water.
3. Add an aromatherapy experience
Light up a few incense sticks or use essential oils to add some aromatherapy benefits to your date night. A few drops of lavender, eucalyptus, peppermint or rose oil can help both you and your partner feel relaxed.
4. Draw a bath
Fill up the tub with some soothing aromatherapy bubbles or bath salts, light some candles, and cue up your favorite relaxation playlist. If you really want to treat yourself on this spa date, toss in a few rose petals or add a drop or two of lavender oil to the water.
Oh, don’t forget to break open your favorite bubbly or rosè. Never forget that!
5. Take turns giving each other a foot massage
Who doesn’t love getting a little pampering? Foot massages are a great way for you both to release all the stress and pressures you took in this week.
And the best part is, you don’t even have to be a pro! Get on YouTube and search for an easy tutorial.
6. Give each other a relaxing scalp massage
Your scalp holds a lot of tension, so why not relieve it with a massage? Put some nourishing hair mask on and take turns in giving each other gentle massages to ensure you both get the benefits of relaxation.
7. make some delish, healthy snacks
Part of the fun of going out is indulging in some delicious (and often unhealthy) foods. But just because you’re staying in doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy some tasty snacks! Whip up some guacamole or salsa and enjoy with some whole wheat tortilla chips; or try making baked sweet potato fries for a healthier alternative to regular fries.
8. Sip on some herbal tea
I really hate anything herbal but I can say this with a guarantee that you’re gonna love a herbal tea is not only delicious, but it can also be very calming and relaxing. Chamomile tea is especially good for promoting sleep; while lavender tea can help to reduce anxiety and stress levels. Experiment with different flavors until you find one that you love!
9. Try a couples meditation session
Believee mee, these are game changers in creating a deeper connection with your partner. Find a guided meditation online, switch off your phones, put on some calming music, and just focus on the present moment.
I swear, it sounds super boring, but if the connection is real, this will make the bond 10x stronger for you both! And, of course, we love calm and peace afterward!
10. Indulge in a couples pedicure, complete with nail polish and foot scrub
What makes waking up the next day for the office even better? A fresh set of manicures!!
Get some nail polishes, and a foot scrub of your choice, and give each other pedicures. Oh no, no, nail polishes are not for him, but the foot scrub and getting rid of all that dirt are!
11. Do a couples yoga session
Yoga is an excellent way to stretch out your muscles and improve flexibility; it can also be very calming and relaxing. If you’re new to yoga, begin with some breathing exercises and switch on to plenty of beginner-friendly classes and tutorials available online.
Or, if you prefer to stretch on your own, try doing some simple forward bends, side stretches, and twists.
12. Use a hot towel to give each other a warm facial steam
A hot towel facial steam is just what you need for that extra bit of pampering. It helps to open up your pores, letting the skin soak in all the benefits of moisturizers and serums.
When your face is steaming hot, it’s time to take off that mask and wipe away all the worries of the day.
13. Make a DIY sugar scrub and exfoliate each other’s skin
This one’s easy! Mix sugar, honey, and cinnamon together to make your own exfoliant. Take turns scrubbing each other’s skin, and don’t forget the arms and legs too!
If not DIY, you can get my ultimate favorite Tree Hut body scrubs and use them instead without any hassle. (You really need these gems for your at-home date night!)
14. Make your own body butter and massage it
Mix your favorite oils to make nourishing body butter. Massage it into each other’s skin, focusing on areas that are particularly dry or in need of extra moisturizing. The result is soft and supple skin that’s begging for cuddles!
15. Give each other a gentle face massage
Jade rollers are great for lymphatic drainage and promoting blood circulation. It’s also said to help reduce puffiness and wrinkles! Take turns in giving each other a gentle face massage with the roller, and follow up with your favorite facial oil or serum.
16. Try a couples acupressure session
Acupressure has been around for centuries, and it’s a great way to help reduce tension in the body. With this technique, you use your fingers to apply pressure on certain points of the body, which can help improve circulation and reduce stress. You can find various tutorials online for couples’ acupressure sessions.
17. Have a cozy movie night with face masks on and snacks
Wind down your date night with a romantic comedy or horror classic – whatever tickles your fancy! Pop some popcorn and make sure you both have cozy blankets while you cuddle up to watch.
18. Make a DIY hair oil treatment
Another cute spa date night idea is to mix together your favorite oils to create a nourishing hair oil treatment. Take turns in applying it to each other’s scalp, and then give each other a gentle massage. If you don’t know how, there are tutorials online that can help!
The result? Well-nourished hair and a relaxed mind.
The best part? You get to enjoy some quality time with your special someone while being pampered at the same time. So why not give it a go?
19. Head outdoors and take a walk in nature
Take the time to reconnect with nature and each other. Get out of the house and take a walk in your area’s closest park or trail. The fresh air, greenery, and peaceful environment can help put you both in the right headspace.
20. Try a couples guided visualization exercise.
Guided visualization is a great way to let go of stress and focus on positive energy. Follow along with an audio recording or guided meditation and let the calming words of the teacher guide both of you into a more relaxed and mindful state.
21. Finish off with cuddles and pillow talk.
The best way to end your spa date night is with some cuddles and pillow talk. Exchange stories, laugh, and just be in each other’s presence. You’ll both feel relaxed and recharged afterward! How cute and romantic, huh?
