Is it your turn to plan date night this Friday? You’ve had a stressful day at work and the last thing you want to do is get dressed up and spend a lot of money at an expensive restaurant. You want to enjoy time with your special someone, but you are running on fumes. The solution to your issue may be sitting right in your own backyard. Not to worry, we have some tips to spice up date night with a hot tub this fall and it will be easier and more fun than you can imagine.
Plan Your Food and Beverages
It’s been a long day and you want to keep it easy. Stop at your local gourmet food store if you have one and pick up some prepared appetizers. If you don’t have a gourmet store, don’t worry. Your normal grocery store will have most of this stuff and it will cost you less than the fancy shop, anyways. Cheeses, cold cuts, grapes, cut-up pineapple chunks, fresh cherry tomatoes, mini carrots, and hummus dip are all perfect. No cooking is required; just lay it all out attractively on a couple of trays. Don’t forget dessert. Mini cheesecakes or brownie bites can be found in the bakery section and are perfect for date night in the hot tub. FYI, did you know chocolate is considered an aphrodisiac? Just saying.
Grab a jug of apple cider you can heat up on the stovetop. In addition, a couple of bottles of your wine of choice will definitely be appreciated.
Create Some Ambiance with Lighting
If you already have some fairy or string lights around your hot tub, you are all set. If not, this might be something to set up for future date nights when you have some time on a weekend. Everyone has a cupboard somewhere in the house that is full of candles. Seek it out, and pull out a lot of candles. Fall colors are best, but white always works. Set them all around the hot tub. The more the better.
Spotify is great for creating playlists. It won’t take any time at all to log in, type in “romantic playlists” in the search bar and you will have a list of smooth jazz, crooners, and many other choices to play in the background while you soak away the stress of the day with your loved one. Try it; it’s like magic and just takes a moment.
Your special someone will be amazed at the effort and thought you put into making your fall date night extra special. Have a stack of cozy towels close by for when you emerge from your soak. A bottle of body lotion is always nice for a relaxing massage once you dry off. As far as entertainment goes, you are only limited by your imagination. If you can’t think of anything better, cozying up on the sofa with some fun fall-themed romantic comedies is always fun. “When Harry Met Sally”, “You’ve Got Mail”, “Autumn in New York”, “Dead Poet’s Society”, and “Practical Magic” are some ideas to get you started.
That wasn’t so difficult, was it? You didn’t have to work too hard and you sure didn’t have to spend a lot of money.
