What to do on Valentines Day, the LUSH way!
Love can be a lot of things. When we think of Valentine's Day, we usually think of a romantic candlelit dinner with chocolate-dipped strawberries. But it can also be an inside joke shared between friends or some quiet alone time with yourself. Whether you’re looking for a great gift or to create cherished moments, step outside the norm and celebrate Valentine's Day your way.
Build an at-home spa
Feel like venturing out? Check out our Lush Spa locations and experience one of our immersive treatments. Combining soothing touch, captivating visuals, harmonious music, sensational scents and fan favourite Lush products, be prepared to embrace the unexpected!
Make a “mixed tape” playlist
Like in the movies, a mixed cassette tape always makes the one you love feel super special. But, if you don’t have a boom box or a time machine, you can recreate the same vibe with a playlist themed around the person it’s for or around something they enjoy. Do they love the lavender and sweet tonka aroma of Sleepy Shower Gel? Make them a medley of dreamy tunes that’ll have them singing in the shower. Or maybe they’re all about the uplifting, fruity fragrance of Va Va Voom Aroma And Bath Melt. A playlist of retro beats and sunshine sounds would be the perfect pairing! It’s a gift that’s as fun to create as it is to experience.
Deck your home in dreamy décor
Surprise your housemate or partner by setting up candles, dimming the lights and adding some flowers to your shared space. If you want to up your aroma game, choose from one of our Lush candles, scented with some of our fan fave fragrances. Sometimes, all you need is the right vibe!
Host a movie marathon
Cozy up with a little cinematic romance! Looking for a side of laughter with your warm fuzzies? Throw on “But I’m a Cheerleader” or “Always Be My Maybe”. Want to watch something that’ll tug at your heart with the possibility of true love? Give “Past Lives” or “When Harry Met Sally” a try. Or maybe you want a romance that inspires self-love, like “How Stella Got Her Groove Back” or “Someone Great”. Whatever you choose, get your snacks, grab your pals and enjoy a Valentine’s Day movie marathon like no other!
Cook a decadent meal
Food is a wonderful tool for sharing comfort or joy. For some extra fun, create a dessert inspired by one of our products like the Strawberry Crumble Bubbleroon or Posh White Chocolate And Rose Body Wash. Go on, get creative!
Play Valentine’s Day games
Romantic Mad Libs, Truth or Dare, Twister or good old fashioned Spin the Bottle … games are a fun and flirty way to have a good time over Valentine’s Day. Feeling extra spicy? Print out pictures of you and your bestie’s exes and add them into a game of Guess Who? Hey, it’s all fun and games.
Recreate your first date, pull out the photo album or put together a video slideshow to relive some loved memories. And it’s not just about romance! Celebrating the moments you’ve had with friends is just as special.
Writing love letters
Pen and paper have long been linked to romance. Writing something sweet to your sweetheart, even through digital means, is a special way to share affection this holiday season. Psst … this pairs wonderfully with our Love Letter Bath Bomb, if you’re looking to add a little something extra to your thoughtfully written words.
Create closeness from afar with long-distance date ideas. Think virtual museum tours, reading a book to one-another over the phone, or creating a city scavenger hunt where you find the same treasures within your different home cities. Looking for something more intimate? You can each grab a Sex Bomb Bath Bomb and experience the same soak with a glass of wine or hot chocolate.
Celebrate Galentine’s Day
Let us all take a moment of gratitude for Leslie Knope from "Parks and Recreation" for the gift that is Galentine’s Day! Then get your pals together for a fantastic fun night of food, drinks, music and good vibes. You can take any of the above ideas and turn them into a Galentine’s extravaganza or simply host a dinner with your friends and celebrate the love of community.
