4 romantic bathroom gestures for Valentine's Day

Posted by Ruth Foster in Inspiration | 5 months ago 3 min read

Are you scrabbling around for a Valentine's Day gift that doesn't cost the earth? In this post, we've come up with some fun and inexpensive ways to express your love simply by making use of your bathroom.

Whether you go all out to impress your partner or find the whole thing tacky and sickly sweet, Valentine’s Day has become big business in recent times.

According to comparison site, the average Brit spent £23 celebrating Valentine’s Day in 2022, which is a figure that has steadily dropped. With the cost of living crisis leaving us with less cash to splash, this is hardly surprising.

Instead of buying boring old presents… you know, chocolates & wine (when many are still trying to stick to their new year health kick), or flowers and soft toys, people are looking to low-cost yet romantic gestures to express their feelings.

With this in mind, we’re here to play Cupid, with 4 alternative bathroom-based things you can do to capture your partner’s heart.

Magic mirror message

One that you may have seen in the movies (but perhaps only in horror films!). Get up before your partner and use a dry finger to trace out a romantic message on your mirror. When they run the shower or take a bath, the message should magically appear in the condensation. Listen out for the "aaaah" from the bathroom.

The bathroom fairy

Another way to surprise and perhaps even shock your partner would be to secretly give the bathroom a bloomin' good clean. may not exactly be the most romantic of gestures, but it'll certainly be more than appreciated!

Set your alarm an hour early, get the bathroom cleaners out and put your back into it. Reorganise your bathroom cabinets, chuck away all those nearly-empty toiletries and perhaps buy some nice new containers so you can transfer your partner's lotions and potions into something altogether more fitting. Leave a little note "Cleaned by the bathroom fairy" and jump back into bed. Just make sure you label the new containers!

Be a Butler/Maid for the evening

Sharing a bath with your partner is a great idea in theory, but in reality it can be pretty uncomfortable—unless you have a good quality double ended bath! So, why not try this alternative option? It's certainly a great way to get back into your partner's good books.

Set the scene and get the mood just right

First off, prepare a lavish bath and set the scene. Lots and lots of bubbles, candles, relaxing music and perhaps a chilled drink on standby. For the next hour, you are at your partner's beck and call. Let them have a bell and call you for things such as a neck and shoulder massage, snacks, drinks or simply more hot water! They get to relax and be pampered; you clock up some well-earned partner points.

A heartwarming gesture

With Valentine's Day falling in the winter, your bathroom may be a little on the chilly side. So why not surprise your partner with a brand new fluffy dressing gown left on the back of the bathroom door, or perhaps invest in a nice new set of towels warmed to perfection? All accompanied by a suitably soppy message.

Alternatively, you could just get a nice new heated towel rail!
