Valentine’s Day Spa-tacular: 10 Tips for Having a Spa Day At Home

February 3, 2015

Valentine’s Day 2015 is on a Saturday – make it a romantic celebration-in with these at-home spa tips!

If you’re looking to make this a weekend celebration, check out our ideas on how to celebrate a Valentine’s Day weekend! Pick up a spa basket filled with all of the essentials – keep in mind when choosing the perfect spa assortment to try and choose a scent you will both enjoy. Here are several tips for a spa day at home – while this is a great activity for a romantic night, in a spa day can also work for ladies night!

Spa gift basket with lavenderStart by selecting the spa scent. When choosing your spa assortment, try to choose a scent that the both of you will enjoy. If you’re unsure, a safe option is always a “clean, fresh” scent such as with the Apres Rain Spa Basket.

Create a spill-proof zone. Neither one of you is going to want to jump and grab the paper towels when you’re mid-relaxation with a face scrub on. Rather, take some time beforehand to cover floors and surfaces in old newspapers or similar so any accidental drips or spills can be addressed after the relaxation time is over.

Keep the menu light. Starting with breakfast and throughout the entire day, choose meals that won’t leave you feeling heavy or bloated.

Skip the 3pm coffee. If coffee or tea are part of your daily routine, be sure to indulge in the morning, pre-spa activities. The reason for this is any muscles that caffeine can actually cause muscles that have relaxed during the spa-tacular itinerary to tense up.

Light candles. Set the scene with dim lights and lit candles. If your spa supplies are scented, opt with unscented candles as to avoid overwhelming the senses. Celebrations.com shared an easy tutorial on turning using sheet music to create your own “musical” candles for Valentine’s Day, which brings us to our next tip…

Prepare a playlist. For a romantic spa day, pick your favorite love-inspired songs. If you the two of you have a special song, be sure to throw it in the mix.

Prepare warm towels. If possible, do a laundry load of towels and dry them morning of. Store them in an sealed bag to keep the warmth in. That way, you have warm towels to use during your spa day!

Prepare conversation cards. As much as you may know about the other person, there is always more to learn! Prepare conversation cards with random questions such as, “what’s your favorite 80s song” or “what’s your dream vacation” or similar questions that you may not know the answers to. Alternatively, you can prepare topics to discuss for a deeper conversation. These will come in handy during downtime such as waiting for a face mask to harden!

Cool down with refreshing sips and snacks. You’re guaranteed to be spending a lot of time in hot steam during this day, so be sure to stay hydrated and refreshed with cool drinks or snacks (like mini wine popsicles – yum!).

Experiment with essential oils. As mentioned above, spa and steam go hand in hand. Take advantage of this by adding a dash of essential oils to the mix! Choose essential oils known for their benefits, such as sage, eucalyptus, or clarysage.

How to Plan the Perfect Valentine’s Day Weekend

January 22, 2014

Valentine’s Day falls on a Friday this year. Rather than making reservations at your go-to spot, whisk your special someone to a romantic getaway – all from the comfort of your own home!

We’ve put together some of our favorite romantic gift baskets, so you can have the staycation of your dreams without all the prep work.

Friday
valentine-spa-basketAfter a long day of work, there’s nothing quite as satisfying as kicking off your shoes and cozying up to your special someone. Surprise your sweetie with a romantic dinner for two, complete with their favorite bottle of wine and savory cheese pairings.

After a light dinner, treat your sweetie to a spa treatment at home. Set the mood with elegant candles, while treating your Valentine to a well-deserved massage with one of our romance-ready spa baskets.

Saturday1800baskets.com Meat and Cheese Basket

Did you know that February is also Creative Romance Month?! With the weekend ahead of you, here’s the time to put a fun spin on your time spent together. Skip the Netflix marathon and plan a romantic celebration you can still do within the comfort of your home!

Plan a picnic at home
It may be a bit too chilly to do the traditional picnic in the park, so why not turn your living or dining room into the picnic area of your dreams?! Dazzle your date by filling the room with fresh flowers and a prepared picnic basket for two. Light a candle or two – you’re not outdoors so there’s no risk of forest fires!

fannie-may-chocolate-covered-strawberries-valentines-dayDancing and Dinner
Create your very own romantic scene with some dim lighting and bubbly for a one-of-a-kind date night at home. Don’t go out, rather order in and leave the rest of the world at the door as you focus on falling in love with your sweetie all over again. Before finishing up with dessert, take your sweetie out on your own personal dance floor and dance as fast or slow as you’d like. Prepare you playlist beforehand with some of her favorites as well as a few of the classics. Finish your meal off by indulging in decadent chocolate strawberries paired with a champagne toast to the two of you.

valentine-breakfast-basketSunday
Sunday, lazy Sunday.

Wake your Valentine up to the smell of buttery pancakes and maple syrup with a savory breakfast (or brunch) for two. Spend today lounging around and day dreaming with your significant other. Get to know each other all over again. Ask how work is going and really take the time to listen. Make today not just about romance, but also about friendship. After all, she is your best friend!

Unique Valentine’s Day Gifts and Ideas

Love is in the Air Balloon & Sweets Product Code:96122

Welcome Back Baskets Readers!

zack morris saved by the bell valentines day

I wonder how much Zack spent on gifts for Kelly/every girl guest star on the show...

A lot of great deal breakers from your comments! I consider myself an expert Television watcher and at least 10 of the deal breakers you all commented on have happened on various episodes of Full House and Saved By the Bell; I feel like we all should have had these important life lessons ingrained into our brains by now (maybe it didn’t work because the moment wasn’t accompanied by some situational theme music or a long speech breaking the third wall from Zack Morris or Danny Tanner). Point being, aside from telling you all the television shows I know better than my own memories, is that I never knew these deal breakers happened outside of my television screen!  Anyway, winners! Congratulations to Danielle Levins (February 2, 2012 at 4:19 pm), Janey B. (February 3, 2012 at 7:26 pm), Lucy (February 7, 2012 at 6:49 am), RAJ (February 9, 2012 at 12:35 pm), Adrian (February 9, 2012 at 3:21 pm)! Email your shipping information to amariscal@1800flowers.com and I’ll send out your Valentine’s Day treat tower!

Love is in the Air Balloon & Sweets Product Code:96122

Love is in the Air Balloon & Sweets $29.99; Product Code:96122

Valentine’s Day is less than a week away! Are you all prepared? Do you have Valentine’s Day plans or non-plans? Maybe Valentine’s Day gift ideas? I will be doing everything very last minute, so I foresee a more “homemade” Valentine’s Day gift in my near-future project list. If you’re feeling rushed on time for Valentine’s Day planning, don’t fret! I have a few fun and interesting ideas for unique and loveable Valentine’s Day gifts.

If you’re looking for a unique spin to the traditional Valentine’s Day gift, 1800baskets.com has you covered! As we all know by now, I’m not a big fan of pink, but even I think this Valentine’s Day gift is very adorable and could be great decoration for after the holiday. Our “Love is in the Air Balloon & Sweets” gift basket would make for a great surprise for any sweetheart this Valentine’s Day. Containing Cinnamon popcorn from The Popcorn Factory and foiled-wrapped heart chocolates, it’s the perfect spin on a traditional Valentine’s Day gift (also the contents taste amazing!).

If you want to get more creative, we have some select gift baskets perfect for a romantic Valentine’s Day celebration. Try out our “Irresistible Valentine’s Day Wine Gift Basket” or “Romantic Evening Red Wine & Lindt® Truffles”, both equipped with delicious wine and fine chocolates. Have this gift ready to present with the promise of an intimate night in together. A great way to show you planned something romantic for this Valentine’s Day.

Romantic Evening Red Wine & Lindt® Truffles & Irresistible Valentine’s Day Wine Gift Basket

I recently went to a friend’s wedding and they had a really great and romantic idea that could be used for those of you who are looking for a more home-made idea. They had a series of empty and decorated wine bottles with different year increments on them (like 1 year, 5 years, 10 years, etc) and had all of their guests write small notes to them for each anniversary. So when they reach that anniversary date, they will read all the sweet notes everyone sent to them on their wedding. I think an idea of this that would be cute to try out is to get a few empty bottles, decorate them with certain dates or events and have some little love notes inside for your significant other to read later!

Another great home-made gift is to make a coupon book (this is a good stand-by for any celebration!). One of my friends went to a family Christmas party where one of the members decided that instead of everyone buying them gifts, they would rather have everyone pick a piece of paper hanging on a string from her ceiling fan, on each piece of paper was a chore or task to do. Personally, I think that’s brilliant and I’m a little shocked I didn’t come up with it first. Obviously, you can change around the book to more romantic, Valentine’s Day related things or coupons that relate directly to you.

What are some unique Valentine’s Day gift ideas that you have? Let me know in the comments section (1-2 paragraphs) and FIVE will win the Love is in the Air Balloon & Sweets Valentine’s Day gift basket!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Godiva® Valentine’s Day Chocolates Gift Basket

Welcome Back Readers!

We have A LOT of names to get through today, so I’ll just go right at it! Congratulations to Jenny S (January 19, 2012 at 4:22 pm), Teresa Skinner (January 19, 2012 at 5:10 pm), Doris (January 20, 2012 at 9:00 am), Jill Kinney (January 21, 2012 at 12:10 pm), Bessie Louise Burnsed (January 23, 2012 at 11:27 am), Carmen Guajardo (January 23, 2012 at 11:54 am), Marie Lujan ( January 23, 2012 at 1:26 pm), Ben G (January 24, 2012 at 8:18 pm), Dorinna Wren (January 25, 2012 at 10:46 am), and Hank (January 25, 2012 at 3:00 pm!

Decadent Happy Valentine’s Day Truffle Cake Pops

Decadent Happy Valentine’s Day Truffle Cake Pops $24.99; Product Code:94360

Whew! Now that that’s settled, let’s jump right into Valentine’s Day! As a young girl in my 20s, I am pretty much obligated to enjoy Valentine’s Day and all the glitz and chocolates that come with it (which for the most part I do!). Personally, I could do without the color pink screaming at me from all sides (I’ve always been a blue girl myself) but man do I ever enjoy getting gifts or cards on Valentine’s Day. I like to think that this has been instilled in me since grade school when we would heavily decorate an old shoe box to house all the Valentine’s Day cards every kid in class was made to bring that day, and then read over the same “You’re cool!” message that was written by the people you liked once you got home (You’re cool, too Sean).

Well, I don’t have a decorated shoe box on my desk now and only one person is really obligated to send me presents on February 14. But I’ve learned that the gifts do get a lot sweeter, literally. I’ve been really good about this vegetarian thing for January (almost a month through!) so I will have no qualms whatsoever about eating my weight in Valentine’s Day gifts on the 14th; Which is a good thing too, because I really can’t choose what I want more out of our Valentine’s Day collection.

Godiva® Valentine’s Day Chocolates Gift Basket

Godiva® Valentine’s Day Chocolates Gift Basket $79.99; Product Code:96121

Our Godiva® Valentine’s Day chocolate gift basket is enough to make your mouth water just from the computer screen. It’s packed with small chocolates, chocolate-covered pretzels, truffles, dessert bar, cocoa, confections and so much more. Also the basket is sincerely stylish enough to be used when it’s emptied.

Our Valentine’s Day truffle cake pops have definitely had their own feature in my dreams. We had a version of them for Halloween and at least 5 were consumed by me in one day…I just couldn’t resist. Our real chocolate covered strawberries don’t need any kind of introduction, but it’s always good to know that they are decorated for the holiday with cute little red kiss sprinkles!

Imperial Cherry Blossom Spa Gift Basket

Imperial Cherry Blossom Spa Gift Basket $59.99; Product Code:93348

Maybe you’re looking for a more relaxing gift? Our Imperial Cherry Blossom Spa gift basket is simply divine. I may be biased at the moment, because I’ve just recently discovered how much I love salons and spas now that I received a Christmas gift to go to one, but this gift basket is filled with all sorts of extravagant and indulgent gifts. There’s a spa mitten, sponge, body lotion, sugar body scrub, body oil, exfoliating shower gel, and much more! It’s the perfect Valentine’s Day for someone who needs some relaxation.

Since it’s not February yet, I need to go back to staring at pictures of salads and wait for the day when I can go into a sugar coma and wear sweatpants for the rest of the week. But FIVE of you lucky commenters will be able win some sweet Valentine’s Day treats early! In the comments section (1-2 paragraphs) tell me what was your favorite Valentine to receive? Five lucky and random winners will receive the Godiva® Valentine’s Day chocolate gift basket!

Have a great weekend!
