Are you looking to make your sweetheart swoon this Valentine’s Day but feel a little bored with flowers, dinner and wine? (Don’t get me wrong, she still likes those things) but let’s think outside the Valentine chocolate box this year! Below are 3 original, fantastic and oh-so-pampering gift ideas that are sure to please your special someone this February 14th! And don’t forget, you are supporting local business too!
Have you heard of this relaxing new stress-busting activity? Now you can also do it together! Floating is a practice where you enter into a float tank (also called an isolation tank or sensory deprivation tank) which is a well-engineered enclosed tub filled with 10″ of water that has 800 lbs. of dissolved Epsom salts in it. The individual lies down in the water and floats effortlessly in the nude. The water is heated to the same temperature as the surface of your skin so that when the water settles and you remain relaxed and still, you do not really feel the water anymore. The tank is light-proof, sound-proof and has a neutral smell. This environment then has a plethora of benefits and applications for health, personal development, spirituality, and well-being. Cost: 2 sharable floats for $98.
