Just because we’re stuck at home and there’s no chance of getting a babysitter or going out doesn’t mean we can’t still have date night! So take a look at this awesome at home spa date night bag. Tonight, put the kids to bed a little early, and spend some time together!
Back in February, my MOPS group created some date night bags and boxes. There were 4 different teams that came up with 4 completely different ideas. This project had me thinking just how important it is to have date nights at home! Especially now given the restrictions due to COVID 19.
It’s hard to come up with ideas on your own sometimes, so I thought I’d share this creative and intimate at home spa date night.
My spa date night bag contains some items that you can grab from your bathroom and kitchen. If you don’t have everything on the list, that’s okay! You can make do with what you have or you can snag them from the links that I’ll share with you.
Home Spa Date Night Bag
Write a little love note for your partner.
If you plan to give your partner this date night bag as a gift, start off by writing a little love note! Sometimes it’s easier to write out your intimate thoughts, feelings or desires then it is to say them. Let your partner know how you feel. Share your love for them and let them know where you intend for the night to go…
Include a list of instructions.
With your love note, provide a list of instructions to set the mood and to act as a guide through the date. You can sign up here to get a set of instructions, a checklist to fill your bag, a set of intimate questions and a page to write your love note on!

Items to include in your bag.
A candle or multiple candles
This can be any candle around your home or if you’re looking to really set the mood with flameless candles or if you need some spa like scents, check out some of these date night candles you can snag from Amazon.
Champagne (or drink of choice)
Champagne flutes or wine glasses
Use what you have or get some new ones! I recommend plastic or silicone since you’ll potentially be getting the tub.
Chocolates, strawberries, cheese, etc.
Just a little something that pairs nice with your drink of choice. You can snack on them while settling into conversation.
Skip the face masks we’re wearing to the store, and swap it for a relaxing sheet, mud or clay mask! If you have some on hand at home, use them or take a look at a few of my favorites below!
If a sheet mask is what you’re looking for, I love the Celavi Collagen set. You get 12 masks for under dollar each! If you prefer a clay or mud past, Generation Clay is my personal favorite brand! The tube may cost a bit more, but it lasts forever!
Any type of massage oil will do. Find something with scents that are relaxing and appeal to you. Better yet, go the CBD route if it’s something you like to incorporate into your healthcare routine.

What are you favorite types of at home dates?
Have you ever done a home date night box before?
I’d love to hear what you did and your thoughts on it!
This sounds really fun! We are long overdue for a date night. I’ll have to check out the printable.
We are too! Quarantine has put a damper on date night but this was fun!
This sounds lovely! I need to do this!
Awww. This is such a wonderful and relaxing way to spend time together as a couple right at home!
Thanks so much for sharing!
It was nice to step out of our comfort zone at home and do something fun and meaningful. Diving deeper with the questions really sparked conversation for us!
I love these ideas! We’ve been in such a slump lately and I definitely need some new ideas. Our anniversay is coming up in May and I doubt we will get to go anywhere so these are actually so perfect. I’m gonna start putting this together now and surprise him for our anni!
That would be so perfect! We were definitely in a slump between our two kiddos and this time of quarantine! It brought a little life back into our relationship!
Saving this for later when we have a baby sitter!!
The best part is that you can do it at home when the kids are in bed!
What a cute idea! Thanks for sharing!
I could really use a spa night these days! Thanks for sharing!
Oh this is lovely. I would love a date night like this.
