Learning to massage is the perfect romantic Christmas gift for your partner – after a long year, who wouldn’t want to relax together in the living room and get extra close with a little back rub?
Give your partner a lifetime membership to our Melt: Massage for Couples video series and watch them light up.
We’ve made it extra easy for you with our series of cute Christmas printables. Here’s exactly how to make Melt a special gift for under the tree this year.
We’ve created a series of three Christmas massage printables you can choose from – and they’re free! Simply download your favorite one and have it printed and trimmed to size on high quality paper at your local print shop. Source a square envelope or just wrap the voucher right up into paper.
To make this gift really special, we suggest finding something to accompany the voucher that you can wrap and present alongside it. Massage oil is a natural choice – you’re going to be needing it anyway to get started on your massaging together! If you already have oils at home – then you’re good to go. If not – below are some resources for you.
There are some gorgeous massage oil options (we’ve listed a few favorites below) – pick one up while you’re at the mall or have it delivered from the internet and present it nestled into a box with some tissue paper for a gorgeous gift.
Consider adding some scented candles and maybe even a soft hand towel (handy for wiping off oil) if you’re wanting something extra.
A good quality massage oil is easy to find – you can pick it up at the drugstore or the grocery store. We’re a fan of plain carrier oils at Melt, they’re simple and natural (but of course, there are also some beautiful blended, scented oils out there too).
What we like about carrier oils / base oils is that they’re made from the one product, for example: Almond Oil, Apricot or Grapeseed Oil. If you’re allergic to Almonds use Apricot or Grapeseed.
Oil blends will include a number of different oils and will usually come with a scent too. Be careful that neither you nor your partner have sensitive skin that will react with blended essential oils, or any aversion at all to certain essential oils (some aren’t suitable for pregnancy, for example). Do your research first. If you’re not sure about sensitivities or contraindications, you’re best to stick to 100% apricot oil.
From Amazon, there’s the Kusala Life Sweet Almond Oil with its earthy, upmarket packaging and a great product to boot, with a little hint of Vitamin E in there for extra skin nourishing. It’s sourced from Non-GMO Almond kernels and it’s sub-$20. Here’s a slightly more masculine packaging with the Primitive Sweet Almond Oil – a great choice if you’re gifting Melt to the man in your life. Also all natural, also under $20. This Beauty Aura 100% Pure Grapeseed Oil is a good lower cost alternative at the $11 mark – again, all natural with no nasties and great for sensitive skins. I also really love the Hugo Naturals brand with their all-natural ingredients in both a plain carrier oil and also some exotic scent combinations.
Your Cheapest Carrier Oil on Amazon
This 4oz bottle of Apricot Oil will work perfectly if you’re looking for something on a budget. It’s a small bottle yet enough to get you through several massages together. It’s 100% natural, cold pressed and the perfect consistency for massage. It’s Denis’ choice when looking for a budget oil. Get it here from Amazon for under $5 delivered.
If you’re looking for a seriously sexy massage blend, the guys at Shunga do an amazing job of quality, natural massage oils. Try the one in Exotic Fruits ($13.81) for a high octane dose of aphrodisiac. Or for something deeply romantic try the Now Foods Tranquil Massage Oil ($9.37) for its rose scent and healing properties.
