Is it ever too early to start thinking about Valentine’s Day? After the New Year hits, things quiet down and the weather is cold and snowy; especially in Northern P.A. So to pass the time, why not plan a romantic Valentine’s Day surprise for your honey? If you have a hot tub in Luzerne, you’re 90% of the way there since the way to almost anyone’s heart is a hot tub. Consider a few hot-tub-date ideas to show your Valentine the love this year.
Nothing is more romantic than a handwritten invitation, so skip the technology and write a few lines on a sheet of red paper, a pink post-it note, or anything that lets you write where, when, and a little bit of what to expect (example: Please join me this Valentine’s Day at 6 pm for a romantic date in the hot tub. Drinks and appetizers will be served. Clothing is optional). Now who could say no to that?
You definitely need to have some relaxing music playing during your hot tub date. Anything with a laid-back vibe would be perfect; a little Luther Vandross, some Enya, even the Vince Guaraldi trio can create the atmosphere you want. Remember that you might be soaking for a long time, so have plenty of music ready to go.
There is much to be said about aromatherapy, so look for essential oils that can be used in the hot tub without clogging the filter (talk to your spa installer) or use scented candles. Some of the most relaxing scents are:
- Clary Sage
The Food And Drink
Since you’ll be in a hot tub, you’ll need to stay hydrated, so provide plenty of refreshment. Though wine or champagne is romantic, it is also dehydrating so stick to one glass and save the rest for after. For food, you can’t go wrong with cheese and crackers, some cut-up fresh fruit, or even a few chocolates. Nix the chicken wings and pizza for obvious reasons!
What you do in the hot tub is up to you. It’s a good place to converse and talk, give each other a massage, or just relax and chill. Either way, you’ll guarantee a Valentine’s Day to remember for years to come.
