Massage still tops the list of one of the best gifts to give your special someone. Think you need to run to the spa to enjoy this special treat? Think again! You can deliver a great massage to your partner right in the privacy of your own home. In fact, you have the advantage of knowing your partner and already sharing an intimate connection with them.
As you prepare for this perfect evening, be sure to think about how you can appeal to as many of your partner’s five senses as possible.
Get some massage oil. Check your local health food store for an oil that has healthy ingredients for the skin.
Really set the mood. Pick an area in your house where the two of you can be alone. I suggest you not do the massage in the bedroom. If you really want to create a romantic room, choose a space that your partner will not expect. Also staying away from the bedroom ensures you focus on the massage and giving to your partner rather than other things the bedroom may bring up.
Spruce up the room with rose petals and candles.
This can be accomplished with candles, incense, or an oil burner. Calming scents are preferred. Avoid loud perfumes.
Choose relaxing music that you know appeals to your partner. The music should have a slow tempo to help create ambiance.
Strawberries, grapes, dark chocolate, or red wine are perfect for this occasion. Avoid heavy foods right before the massage.
