If you’re like the team here at Goodall Pools & Spas, you relish every free moment you can spend enjoying your hot tub.
So what do you do when you have a lot of spare moments, as with winter’s holiday breaks? Spend them in your hot tub, of course!
Read on for an array of ways to mix it up a bit when you turn your holidays into hot tub days with a staycation at home for the holidays.
Spa Day at Home
While others are paying heavy fees to keep tight appointments, and then navigating schedules, childcare, traffic, and parking for a few hours at a day spa on the other side of town, you can have a spa day right in your backyard as often as you wish!
Transform your tub area into a Zen retreat with calming decorations, soft lighting, and serene music. Add essential oils to your hot tub for aromatherapy. Let the scents transport you to tranquility. Practice stretching or relaxation techniques in the warm water. Its buoyancy supports movement for a gentle session.
Invite some friends to join you!
Stargazing Night in Your Hot Tub
Choose a full moon, a lunar eclipse, a blue moon, a supermoon, a hunter’s moon, a meteor shower, some other celestial phenomenon, or just a good clear night for studying the stars.
Gather your family and submerge in the hot water together as the sun sets and the air cools. Accompany your stargazing with snacks, drinks, and music.
Be sure to use one of the many applications available for identifying celestial bodies to make your staycation educational.
Challenge your family to identify constellations like Orion, The Big Dipper, and Ursa Major and planets like Venus and Mercury.
Hot Tub Theme Nights
Transform your hot tub into a tropical paradise, a steampunk submarine, a hot spring in a forest or glen, or even something more intimate once the kids are in bed. The only limit is your imagination.
Decorate, play music, and serve drinks and snacks according to your theme. Let the family take turns choosing themes, or you might end up in hot water.
Movie Nights in Your Hot Tub
Everyone loves movie night, especially when you add the big outdoor screen and your handy projector. Winter doesn’t have to ruin the fun!
Beat the cold by soaking in your hot tub for a film. Be careful in the hot tub with the popcorn and soda (or pop). Choose appropriate seasonal films, or let the whole family vote on which movie to watch. We recommend against Jaws, however.
Hot Tub Game Night
Many of your favorite games can be moved to your hot tub.
Challenge friends and family with trivia, charades, movie quotes, name that tune, I Spy, and any game that can be played without boards or other equipment. Make it a tournament with a fun grand prize or just a one-and-done. You can let the winner choose the next game or the next hot tub theme — it’s good to incentivize.
A hot tub can be a ticket to unforgettable holidays that foster relaxation and wellness and create lasting memories with family and friends, which is what the holiday season is all about.
