When is the last time the two of you relaxed in bed together without a care in the world? Probably not that recently, especially if you've got kids. So why not make a picnic especially for the bedroom, complete with sparkler candles, serving tray (Buy Direct), romantic music and a carefully selected bottle of wine.
Give a Massage
You don`t really need much for a great massage, other than great intentions and either some oil or a massage bar. A nice bath for the two of you to relax the muscles might be a lovely treat to share beforehand (perhaps in champagne?), with towels previously warmed in the dryer to boot. Just make sure to use spare sheets if you plan on doing a full body massage, since the oils you`ll use to glide over his or her skin can stain quite easily.
