Here’s an adorable way to turn your massage into a mystery treasure hunt that will build anticipation and keep your sweetie guessing all day long.

We’ve had these punny, punny printables designed especially to help you in gifting Melt – or in just gifting a massage to your partner, no matter how long you’ve had Melt for!

You’re welcome to download them for free so you can hide them around in a little hide and seek treasure hunt as cute clues for the massage you’re going to give your partner tonight.

Melt Massage Printables

As you can see, each little card has a massage pun hidden in it. While a single card won’t make much sense to your partner on its own, as they discover and collect them throughout the day their Sherlock powers of deduction may see how this is all leading to one hot massage for them later that night!




This is a perfect romantic gesture for birthdays, anniversaries, Valentine’s Day or just because you want to thrill your sweetie and make them smile for no reason at all.


Here’s how it works.

  1. Download our adorable Melt Massage Pun Printables for free right here
  2. Have them printed in color either at home or at your local print store. We also recommend having them laminated for an extra-professional effect. You can laminate the entire sheet all at once!
  3. Cut each card out individually. They work best if you leave a bit of a white border around them, that way you don’t have to cut too perfectly but they’ll still look great. Don’t worry, the laminate will hold!
  4. Hide them! Tuck them around where your partner will find them throughout the day. In their empty coffee mug, stuck to the bathroom mirror, slipped into a wallet, placed on the dashboard of their car… Leave them where they will be periodically discovered throughout the day. And save a couple that will be found toward the end of the day, perhaps alongside a hand towel, a scented candle and a finally a bottle of massage oil for the ultimate clue –they’re getting a massage!
  5. When it’s time for the massage, have everything ready as per usual and indulge your partner with some pampering rubs using our Melt: Massage for Couples video tutorials. If you can’t get a massage in on the day of the gift, simply present them with one of our free downloadable massage gift vouchers – it will draw out the suspense even further!



This is the perfect example of taking a simple, loving gesture like giving a massage and going above and beyond to turn it into an exciting experience that draws out a full day of anticipation and excitement for your sweetie. Best of all, it costs practically nothing to pull it off!

How did we come up with this idea? A few Valentine’s Days ago, we were pretty strapped for cash and I was searching for a really low-cost way to let Den know I was thinking of him, even if we couldn’t lash out on an expensive dinner or dozens of roses. I stumbled across some cute printables online and set about doing just this with them – he loved it! He’s kept them ever since and he still smiles when he sees one of them stuck up in his office.

‘Just massage? You just teach massage?’

Yes, that’s what Den and I do.

I know, it seems improbable that two people can make a living off teaching massage to couples, but that’s our full time work now. And we wouldn’t have it any other way.

But we don’t think of it as ‘just massage’ (as a lot of people like to call it).

For us, it actually stretches much farther than that. It means so much more.

Denis and I have worked with couples, in all different capacities, for most of our collective careers now.

Before Melt, we conducted live massage seminars every month as a side business for eight years.

We created a website full of date ideas and relationship advice for couples. I had a national relationships and dating column in a newspaper for three years. We have both written and researched pages and pages of content on the subjects of love and relationships over the years.

Being a couple ourselves (for a decade now!), and knowing the sheer intensity of what goes into sustaining a happy, healthy relationship, we have long been drawn to the idea of helping couples do this.

Den and I are not high-level academics. We don’t have PhDs in psychology and we aren’t science-based research experts.

So, we use the talents we have not to help create groundbreaking studies or counsel marriages back from the brink of divorce, but to help decipher some of the better information out there and – here’s the part that is really important to us – use that research to come up with some practical, helpful tools couples could actually put to use in their everyday lives, to help them take advantage of and put into practice relationship findings from some of the greatest minds in the field of love.

Take $30 Date Night, our date ideas website. It was originally based on research from Arthur P. Aron of the University of Stonybrook in New York.

Aron found that novelty plays an important part in satisfaction levels of couples, and he recommended a regular date night doing new things each time to keep the flames alive.

We thought that sounded like a great idea, so we rallied. We came up with a huge collection of hundreds of date ideas – easy, fun, novel, cheap dates that couples could access when they wanted a boost for their relationship. Practical stuff. Useful stuff.

It worked for us, so we wanted to share it. We put it on the Internet. And we were rapt when we saw it working for other people too.

$30 Date Night provided a small, practical but not to be underestimated solution for an everyday relationship issue – How to get closer. How to stay connected. How to make time for one another in a busy world.

We look at Melt much in the same way, an extension of the same work.

There are scores of studies about the benefits of cuddling for couples, of non-sexual touch and it’s importance in relationships, of how massage between couples can boost trust and intimacy, of how gentle touch with no direct eye contact can help open channels of communication and of how some of the happiest, most long-lasting couples make back rubs a part of their regular routine.

Not to mention the proven health benefits of massage that have been long known in the medical and wellness community.

So it’s not “just massage” that we offer couples. We believe it runs way deeper than that. Massage offers a path to deeper intimacy, stronger trust and a more satisfying relationship.

Being able to massage your partner is a kind, generous act that speaks to every Love Language and shows how much you care.

Den and I see our chance at being able to offer that to couples as one of our most important projects to date. Backed by research. And it’s making a difference – a real difference – to people’s lives all over the globe, one couple at a time.

And that’s way more than “just a massage”.
