Romantic Chillout: Valentines Day Ideas

Romantic Chillout: Valentines Day Ideas

It’s that time of year again: February 14th, A.K.AValentine’s Day. For some of us, it means a day with that special someone, and for plenty others, it’s better referred to as Single Awareness Day, or the eve of chocolate clearances.

Whatever the day means to you, we believe that it’s best spent at home, with some CBD.

And whether you’re doing it solo or with a significant other, we have all the tips for your most romantic chillout yet.

Spend the Morning in Bed With Nighttime CBD Treats

What could be more ideal than a morning in?

Answer: a morning in, on Valentine’s Day, with CBD-infused treats.

And when your treats are tasty CBD gummies, never fear: there’s no chance of crumbs winding up in your bed!

On this extra-romantic day, you and your loved one have a wide variety of benefits to choose from, including Apple Rings, Sour Cherries, and the ever-classic Sour Worms, but we recommend something special for this time of year, like our seasonal Sweet Hearts or our vegan flavor, Strawberry Champagne.

Have a Warm CBD Bath

If you’re looking to turn up the steam this Valentine’s Day, a steaming hot bath is in order. Let’s add a little extra soothing power with CBD!

CBD bath bombs dissolve to combine CBD with relaxing, steamy water with the added benefit of aromatherapy. Simply toss one in the bath and watch them fizz as they release the CBD, essential oils, and fragrance into the bath water, creating an extra-special soak that’ll penetrate the skin and ease muscle tension.

At-Home Couple’s Massage

If the start of the year’s already got you feeling all kinds of tension, Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to unwind, and what better way to do so than with an at-home couple’s massage, featuring CBD?

A CBD-infused massage can do all kinds of wonders, including reduce tension, relieve chronic pain, alleviate anxiety and stress, boost mood, stimulate the senses, and even improve skin conditions! Plus, the added lubrication from a CBD massage oil is going to give your hands less friction, which in turn makes the massage more effective, and more relaxing.

Have a CBD Picnic

For some of us, the weather isn’t always great during the month of love. But for those who see some sunshine, why not enjoy the lovely weather with a picnic? Or better yet, why not enjoy a CBD picnic?

Picnics allow us to enjoy our favorite treats while we’re out in the fresh air, and there’s just something about incorporating our childhood favorites: PB&J sandwiches, lemonade, and gummy treats!

And with CBD gummies, you get to enjoy this childhood fave with an adult twist!

Make CBD Mocktails

This year, we suggest that you skip the lines, traffic, and post-meal bill, and prepare your partner a romantic, home-cooked meal, because let’s be honest: there’s nothing sexier than cooking skills.

And with this classic pasta with a twist of CBD, even the novice cooks will gain some serious brownie points:
