Valentines Day is just around the corner! It is time to start getting your gifts in order. If you are like me you are struggling to find the perfect gift for your spouse. I have the perfect solution for you. Give them the gift of massage this Valentines Day, without ever having to leave home. Learn more about this great gift idea from our sponsor…
It’s always a tough job to impress on Valentine’s Day. The day has so much build up, so much romance, so much expectation that it can often fall short. One of the biggest complaints about Valentine’s Day is that it’s too commercialized, and too forced. Why should we be told when to be romantic towards our partners? Isn’t every day for that?
But it’s hard to let this holiday go by without acknowledging it in some way or another. Which is why it’s best to stay away from the crowds on Valentine’s Day and do something utterly romantic and deeply thoughtful for your spouse at home instead.
Handwritten love letters, home-baked chocolate treats and candlelit dinners are all possibilities on the agenda, but we really have to agree with our friends Denis and Emma at Melt: Massage for Couples when they say that giving your spouse a massage is by far the most romantic way to spend this Valentine’s Night (and the night after that… and the night after that…)

Here are 5 reasons why we love the idea of giving the gift of massage this February 14. Make this years’ Valentine’s the best ever!
It’s away from the crowds
You’re in the comfort of your own home where it’s not forced, cheesy or awkward (like sitting in a restaurant full of tables for two) to be “doing romance” when everyone else is too. Better yet, you don’t need to organize a babysitter if you have children (overpriced on Valentine’s Day, just like the roses) – just wait until they go to bed and then head to the living room to start your date night.
You can get your hands all over each other
You will quite literally have your hands all over each other’s bodies! Learning to massage means that you’ll be touching your partner in a way you never have before. It’s romantic, intimate and the perfect date night.
- It’s the gift that keeps on giving
Learning to massage is the gift that keeps on giving – the more you practice, the better you’ll both get at it! The Melt: Massage for Couples video tutorials are split into three sessions – so you can do them over three separate date nights, and go back to them anytime you want a refresher. You get lifetime access to the videos and you can watch them as many times as you like. So you CAN be romantic any other day of the year too.
- The ambiance is pure romance
The best environment for a couples massage includes dim lighting, chilled music, a floor full of comfortable pillows and maybe even some food and wine. If all that doesn’t add up to a romantic night in for two, I don’t know what does!
- It’s a selfless, giving act
Giving your partner a massage without expecting one in return is a truly beautiful gift for them. For just one night, let them relax while you soothe away the stress from their aching muscles and make them feel totally pampered. Watch them glow when you’re done and tell me that’s not love.
We love the Melt: Massage for Couples video series, and we think you will too. Melt has been created by a real life married couple, especially for people to use at home in their own relationships. It’s classy, sophisticated and full of effective, simple techniques so that you will learn how to give your partner a half hour massage without a sore thumb in sight!
Melt: Massage for Couples is offering a Valentine’s Day special of $79 for lifetime access to their videos. Pick up some good quality massage oil from the drugstore and you’ve got one of the most romantic Valentine’s Day date ideas ever for under $100. Gift vouchers are also available.
