Spending quality time with your significant other is an important aspect of a happy and healthy relationship. Date nights are a great way to get that quality time in but let's be real. Traditional dates can get pricey and sometimes you just flat out don't have the energy to get dressed up and go out. Don't worry! Traditional dates aren't your only option.

A great alternative for regular date nights is staying in and creating your own at-home couples spa experience. With the self-care trend going full force lately, there are a ton of products or DIY solutions out there for everyone, including men. So not only does your relationship get the attention it deserves, you're also giving yourself some self-love which is equally important. If you're not sure where to start, read on to find out how you and your boo can create the perfect spa right at home.

 

First things first, grab your favorite wine and chocolates, light some candles and put on some relaxing music.

 

A good way to start the night is to draw up a steamy bubble bath for two and use a homemade body scrub to get your skin looking and feeling its best. Don't know what kind of scrub to make? Try this one that's made with coffee.

 

All that steam will open up your pores which will make it the perfect time to use your favorite store-bought face mask make your own. We know everyone's skin is different so your face mask should be too! If you're running short on recipes, the video below will show you different options depending on your skin needs. these.

 

Speaking of masks, don't forget to give your hair some TLC, too. Try this hair mask or if you already have a favorite, apply it on each other and give a soothing head massage while you're at it.

Your feet go through a lot every day and they deserve a pedicure no matter if you're a man or woman. You can use the same body scrub you made earlier to soften them up or if you want something specifically made for your feet, try this foot scrub.

Lastly, finish off the night by giving each other full body massages. No one wants to get a massage with rough, dry hands so make sure to use a body oil to make your hands soft and to help replenish your freshly exfoliated skin. Cococare's Cocoa Butter Body Oil is a good one to try if you don't already have a go-to.
