Did you know you don’t need to leave your house to have a romantic spa night? You and your partner can enjoy spa treatments at home any day of the week.
There are so many things you can do to turn your home into a spa for the perfect date night. From taking a relaxing bath to giving each other massages, this list of ideas has you covered! Read on for the best home spa date night ideas that will help you relax and connect with your partner.
What is an At-Home Spa Date?
An at-home spa date is where you turn your home into a spa and enjoy services that are normally provided at a professional spa. Instead of using professional facilities, you use what you have at home and instead of receiving the services from the professionals, you and your partner will treat each other.
Pamper Your Partner
In order to pamper your partner at home, you can treat them to spa services like massage, aromatherapy, or a relaxing hot tub. You can make a whole night of it or use it as a time to spend a romantic 30 minutes together when you’re short on time.
What Do You Need for a Spa Night at Home?
You technically don’t NEED anything to have a spa night at home. However, there are definitely things that can level-up your experience.
What you’ll need depends on the type of spa treatments you and your partner want to do. For example, if you are going to give each other massages, you might want some massage oil, essential oils, hot towels, candles, and a playlist. If you are going to give each other facials, you just need face masks and maybe some drinks or snacks.

Home Spa Night Date Ideas
Here are some ideas of what to do during your date. You can even package these ideas together and create a whole home spa day without even leaving the house! Choose different ideas for different nights for a unique bonding experience each time.
1. Give Each Other Facials
If you can’t fit a full-body massage into your busy schedule, giving each other facials is a quick way to fit some romantic time into your day. Although you can make this into a whole date night and apply a series of applications like they would at a spa.
You can pamper yourselves with a sheet mask or other facial that works to exfoliate, moisturize, or rejuvenate your face. You can even make part of the date around making your own DIY face masks.
There is also a great opportunity here to pair this treatment with other treatments or other fun things. For example, you can add this treatment to a hot bath or apply and wear your masks during a movie night.
2. Share a Romantic Charcuterie Board
Sharing your favorite snacks is always a great way to make a date night extra special. A lot of spas offer a charcuterie board as an addition to their couple’s spa packages.
It’s really fun to share something yummy while you’re relaxing. You can make your own board with cheeses, fruit, crackers, meats, and even some sweet treats.
3. Relax With Aromatherapy
Aromatherapy is often added to professional massage services to add enjoyment and relaxation to sessions. You can use aromatherapy in the form of essential oils or candles to help set the mood for romance and relaxation.
4. Soak In the Tub
One of the best ways to spend a romantic spa evening together is to relax in a tub together with hot water and your favorite bath salts or bubble bath. This is a super sexy idea that will help you connect and enjoy each other’s company while you relax.
5. Hire a Mobile Masseuse – Enjoy a Couple’s Massage
Staying at home doesn’t mean that you have to miss out on professional services. Most areas have mobile masseuses that will come to you! You can both enjoy a relaxing massage without leaving the house.
This is perfect if you have kids at home that you can’t leave or can’t get away for other reasons. You can book relaxing Swedish massages or deep tissue massages that will leave you feeling great.
The masseuse will come to your home, set up a portable massage table, and give you a great massage right in your house. What could be more relaxing that a professional massage that you don’t even have to drive to receive.
6.Take Turns Giving Massages
Instead of hiring someone, you can give each other back or full-body massages. This is a great way to give physical touch and make each other feel amazing!
You can watch a video or two beforehand if you aren’t great at giving massages or if you just want to step up your game. Other things that can make the experience better is adding things like massage oils, dimming the lights, and playing relaxing music.
Make sure you ask each other what feels good and what areas need a little more attention.
7. Trade Relaxing Head Massages
If you’ve ever had a head massage, you know how great it feels! This is a great way to trade quick massages or just treat your partner.
8. Treat Your Hair
Hair treatments aren’t always the first thing that comes to mind when you think about a couple’s spa day. However, it can be really fun to put hair masks on each other. You can do something fun like watch a show or play a game while you’re letting the treatment sit. You can then rinse off together to spice things up.
What’s more romantic than scrubbing off your rough, dead skin together? Just kidding!
Even though it doesn’t sound super cute, exfoliating together can be fun. You can even make your own DIY body scrub together as part of the date. All you need is oil, like coconut oil, and sugar or salt for a super easy scrub. Your skin will feel amazing afterward!
10. Include Spa Music
You know that really relaxing spa music that they play when you go to get a massage? It’s great for setting the mood for your spa evening! Find a playlist or make your own to relax and vibe to.
11. Cover Each Other in Mud
Not real mud, silly! You can buy a body mud mask that is created to improve your skin and leave you feeling great. Applying it to each other can be a fun way to connect intimately. You’ll have to rinse off afterward too.
12. Use Your Hot Tub
If you own a hot tub, using it for your spa night is a no-brainer. Step up your usual soak with some candles, romantic lighting, and drinks for the ultimate romantic evening. It’s easy to forget how romantic a hot tub soak can be together when you’ve had one for a while. Make it a point to include it in your regular date nights!
13. Enjoy a Portable Sauna
If you’re looking for a more boujee home spa date, you have to check out the possibility of a portable sauna. They are fairly inexpensive compared to building a full sauna in your home. Plus, you can use them during your at-home spa dates as a special treat for you and your partner.
14. Trade Foot Massages
Giving each other foot massages is a small act that can lead to big relaxation rewards. Use lotion or oils and trade massages while having a movie night or enjoying a deep conversation.
15. Try a Body Wrap
Body wraps are a unique, fun spa treatment that you can have fun applying and using together. There are all kinds of different body wraps that you can try out that offer different results including skin enhancement, weight loss, and other benefits.
16. Use a Paraffin Treatment
Paraffin treatments are a luxury! It feels great to dip into a warm paraffin wax. These are commonly used during pedicures and manicures. They soften the skin and leave you feeling soft and supple.
17. Sip on Infused Water
Infused water is one of my favorite things about the spa. They usually have a beautiful container full of iced water mixed with things like mint, cucumber, and different fruits.
Have fun coming up with your own recipes together that will leave you feeling hydrated and refreshed. This is a cool, fancy addition that you can make to any of your at-home spa treatments.
18. Give Each Other Pedicures
Recreate a spa pedicure at home by soaking, exfoliating, and beautifying your feet together. You can end the session with a foot rub and moisturizing treatment.
19. Trade Manicures
Manicures don’t get enough credit for the amazing benefits they offer. Soak, scrub, and moisturize each other’s hands for a fun, romantic time together. This is something that’s really easy and simple to do that allows you to connect.
20. Wax Each Other
Beauty is pain right? Although this idea might hurt a little bit, waxing unwanted hair from your partner is still a fun way to connect over a spa treatment.
Make sure to follow the directions and keep your partner away from any hair you don’t want removed (keep the eyebrows!). If anything, you’ll laugh and maybe shed a few tears.
Having a DIY spa date night is a great way to spend some quality time with your partner. If you live in a small town and don’t have a spa available or just don’t want to go out, this is the perfect way to have a romantic date at home. You can choose one or more of the ideas above to create a spa package that you can use to indulge each other in luxury.
If you want to create at-home spa dates regularly, you can put together a spa kit with some of the items mentioned above. Have fun learning different ways to pamper each other and connect on a deep level.
