We know that carving out that special time to connect can be challenging, especially in the winter months. A date night doesn’t have to mean a fancy dinner out, you can spend time connecting together right in your backyard – in a hot tub! A hot tub is a great way to connect not only with your loved one, but with family members, too. This “safe space” allows loved ones to truly open up in a distraction free environment that brings warmth and comfort. In this article, we’ll talk about winter date night ideas from a hot tub & hot to make hot tub date nights fun!

With our increasing responsibilities in life, it can be really hard to find time to have a date night with the one we love. However, according to a Huffington Post article written by Emily Blatchford who interviewed Melanie Schilling a well known psychologist, working on your relationship should be as much (if not more) of a priority as working on your personal goals. It’s so important to carve out some time at least once a week to connect with your significant other to strengthen your bond. Melanie goes on to say that often times each person in a relationship is constantly growing by trying to attain their personal goals. If you don’t come together and share that growth with each other, some folks may actually start to grow apart in the relationship.

Let’s talk about some winter date night ideas from a hot tub, below!


Winter Date Night Ideas From A Hot Tub

1.) Beverages

Maybe it’s hot tea for a relaxing night catching up on each others day or week. Or, a glass or wine or a cold beer to loosen up from a long week of work. Whatever it is, bringing a beverage is a great way to change things up for your hot tub date night!

2.) Good Music

If your hot tub has a sound system, play some music to re-connect! According to an article written by Hugo Singleton in R:Ed, “listening to music helps people connect.” The rhythm in the music helps the brains of those listening to synchronize. Music can also make us feel good by releasing dopamine and endorphins making your time connecting even more enjoyable. Maybe there’s a song or artist that you and your love one used to listen to all the time. Or, maybe discover some new music together. You can really change the mood of your date night with the type of music you choose to play!

3.) Relaxing lighting

If your hot tub has lighting, this can actually play a huge role in what mood you set for the date night. Colors are so powerful, that some actually believe color can be used to treat certain mental and physical illnesses. An article on Very Well Mind written by Toketemu Ohwovoriole, color therapy dates all the way back to Egyptian times. Below are the different ways each color can impact your mood. Choose your hot tub lighting wisely!
