Throwing a spa night can be a great way to relax, unwind, and treat yourself and your friends or partner to a fun time. And the best part about a DIY spa night? It’s easy to plan and an inclusive event for everyone - guys too!

Whether you want to have a spa date night at home or an evening catching up with your besties, these spa night ideas are perfect.

Practice Self-Care

A spa night is the perfect time to practice some self-care that you may be pushing off during the week. Some of our favorite spa night ideas at home include treats like soothing under-eye masks, hand and foot masks, sugar scrubs to help you relax and unwind.

You and your friends can have the ultimate spa experience from home with a foot mask with shea butter. Then, whip out your fave nail polish for manis and pedis without ever leaving the house.

Some spa night ideas for couples can even play up the romance starting with a bubble bath and setting the mood with essential oils like rose, sandalwood, and lavender.

DIY Face Mask Ideas

Another fun spa night idea is to create your own face masks. The beauty experts at Elle have a few fun DIY face mask recipes that you can make with ingredients you likely already have around the house, like honey, avocado, and cucumber.

Don’t Forget Snacks

After setting up your self-care station, lighting your favorite candle, and setting the mood, you can’t forget about the snacks! Consider serving some light food options like fresh fruit and veggies or a charcuterie board.

Hydration is also key during your self-care night. While wine might be a staple of your spa night, don’t forget to offer some other refreshments like cucumber water (a spa classic). Or, you and your friends and partner could get creative crafting tasty mocktails.

Play List and Some Games

These spa night ideas with friends and couples are anything but boring. We are partial to Spotify's All Out 90s. Having some games or activities lined up for the evening is a great way to make sure everyone is having a good time. Of course, there are classics like Truth or Dare or Would You Rather, but you can also ask your friends to bring their favorite board game or use your phones for some Jackbox Games.

Movies are also always a hit and great for watching while your hand or foot mask does its job.

Legally Blonde - a fun and empowering movie that's perfect for a night in
Crazy Rich Asians - a hilarious and heartwarming romantic comedy that's perfect for a night in
The Devil Wears Prada - truly a classic about the fashion industry, with a great cast and lots of laughs
Bridesmaids - a hilarious comedy that will have everyone laughing out loud and feeling great
Pitch Perfect - a great movie with lots of music

Tailor Your Perfect Spa Night

As you can see, these spa night ideas are just the start of your relaxing evening. It’s always a good idea to tailor your spa night to your guests. For instance, the best spa night with your boyfriend may be more romantic than an evening with your friends. And you can always treat just yourself to a spa night at home with a hot bath, bath salts, and your favorite sheet mask.
