Celebrate National Bathtub Day
This Friday, October 7th is National Bathtub Day. In honor of the holiday, why not heat things up with your sweetie with a romantic bath for two? Here are 10 ideas to plan a fun and sexy evening with the one you love.
1. Bathtub Ring Is A Definite No-No
We know. Who wants to start a romantic “To-Do List” with cleaning? But, nothing ruins the mood for romance like a dirty room. Make sure your romantic encounter lives up to its full potential by including a thorough bathtub and bathroom cleaning. Take It Up A Notch: Replace your shower curtain to make you bathroom feel more like a luxury resort and less like your regular, every day bathroom.
2. Timing Is Everything
A romantic interlude is easily ruined with unwanted disruptions. Arrange for a time when you can be alone together. Send the kids to spend the night at their grandparents or make sure your roomies have plans to go out for the evening. Take It Up A Notch: Once you are in the clear, send your partner a fun invitation with a seductive selfie for a specific time. This will create anticipation and excitement leading up throughout the day.
3. Everything Looks Better By Candlelight
The harsh lighting of most bathrooms is anything but sexy. Set the mood by diming the lights to the lowest setting, and sprinkling tea lights throughout the bathroom to add romance. They are a great alternative to regular candles because they are easy to use, make little mess and can be tossed out once cooled. Take It Up A Notch: Add some scented candles to heighten the atmosphere of your romantic bath. Make sure to keep all candles away from dangerous areas where they could be sat on or knocked over.
4. Let’s Get It On…Music
Nothing says sexy like a little Marvin Gaye, “Let’s Get It On”. Just plug in your phone to a portable speaker, turn the speakers to a low volume that can still be heard over the trickle of the faucet, and set your Pandora Radio App to a seductive and relaxing station like Frank Sinatra, Sam Smith, or of course, Marvin Gaye. Take It Up A Notch: Make your own romantic music playlist of songs that have special meaning to both of you while you enjoy your romantic bath.
5. A Little Bit Of Pampering Goes A Long Way
Whether you like to indulge in a mani-pedi, or a fresh blow-out, do something special to spruce up your look that your partner will be sure to notice. (BTW, you’ll feel great too!) Take It Up A Notch: Get your legs waxed so you are silky smooth to the touch during that romantic bath. Take a walk on the wild side and include a Brazilian wax, French bikini wax or manzilian wax for him. (Why should he have all the fun?)

6. Scents-ual Bath Accessories
Make sure you have some loofahs, sponges, and a scented body wash on hand. Take turns washing one another for a relaxing and intimate way to get clean. Take It Up A Notch: Bath salts and bath bombs are available in so many scents. Pick one that rekindles a romantic memory for both of you. We’re partial to Lush’s Sex Bomb. Their “world famous sphere of sex appeal contains all of Nature’s most potent and seductive ingredients to get you in the mood for a good… bath. Scintillating jasmine, clary sage and ylang ylang are powerful aphrodisiacs that are known to relax you…”
7. Champagne & Chocolate-Covered Strawberries
Do you and your honey have a special beverage that always gets you in the mood? Run to the store and pick up a couple bottles of your favorite red wine, or some bubbly and a bucket of ice. Either option will have you feeling fun and frisky in no time. Don’t forget to celebrate each other with a romantic toast. Take It Up A Notch: Set out a tray of chocolate-covered strawberries tubside. (Chocolate is a known aphrodisiac!)
8. Warm & Toasty
Invest in a heated towel rack to keep your towels warm and toasty. Or simply throw them in the dryer and fold to retain some heat before getting into the bath.Take It Up A Notch: Really treat your love by getting “His & Hers” terry cloth robes and cozy slippers.
9. Fresh Rosebuds, The Ultimate Luxury
Partially fill the tub with water and, for an ultra-romantic touch, sprinkle rose petals on the water. Avoid dark red as they may stain the inside of the tub. Instead opt for a soft pink or white color. Once your partner arrives, fill the tub the rest of the way. Just make sure to keep an eye out that you don’t overflow the tub. Take It Up A Notch: Actually this is the ultimate luxury and we can’t think of a way to raise the bar even higher.
10. Enjoy Your Romantic Bath!
Follow all of our hints and we guarantee that you’ll be prepared for a special time with your love. It’s time to relax, loosen up, and enjoy the moment. Do that, and you will have your partner wishing that every day was #NationalBathtubDay.
