Thanks again to Melt for sponsoring this post and improving my marriage for over a year!
The Best Fathers Day Gift I've Ever Found
Fathers day is the perfect time to celebrate all of the stuff that your husband does for your family. But let's face it, no one has the time to shop for hours and plan the perfect day. I don't know about you but I can barely hit the Amazon Prime order button in time to make it to the house for the big day.
So, I worked with Melt this year to create an all out father's day experience that will blow his mind. From start to finish… It’s all covered. Plus it’s budget friendly and benefits you too.
I know… thank me later. 🙂
For anyone that isn't a regular reader, I found Melt last year during a marriage slump (that sounds so terrible to say! I just mean that we had just had our second baby and were completely exhausted and everything except our relationship had to be our priority).
You can read a full review of Melt here, but it added a ton of good things to our lives, most importantly that “new date” feeling.
Melt is an online training program that brings couples massage classes to the privacy of your home. Taught by an Australian Massage Therapist (of 15 years experience) and demonstrated on his wife via online videos (that aren’t creepy, overly “sexy” or weird in the slightest) in a series that will last you many, many date nights and give you skills to improve your marriage over the course of your life together. This was just what I was looking for.
Benefits of Melt
- Denis (The Masseur) is an Australian native with 15 years of massage experience that has massaged celebrities ranging from Pierce Brosnan to Pearl Jam.
- You’re learning a skill that benefits your marriage for the rest of your lives together.
- You’re connecting in a way that’s difficult to do with today’s distractions.
- Melt is easily adaptable for your comfort level.
- Melt is frugal! We plan to do a weekly date night with this, that’s 52 dates a year, which makes the cost per date about 2.28.
- Massages feel really, really good.
- Lifetime access to the videos!
Whether you’re easily embarrassed or a complete vixen, this will make you feel comfortable. There’s no creepy half naked people getting way too into it. It’s instructional, light and at times even funny.
The videos are delivered in an online lifetime membership which means that you don’t have to worry about losing or scratching DVD’s.
You get instructions on everything from the basic massage technique (including a 5 minute quick massage which has become a daily event in our household) all the way to deep tissue massage.
So what should you do for Father's Day?
Let's start with a simple breakfast in bed… and a scavenger hunt. You can find the printables here. Deliver the first one with breakfast and a Father's Day card that lets him know his gift and a surprise will be delivered when he finds all 12 cards.
Let him know that you hid cards in all of his favorite places around the house. (You can also do the least favorite places around the house which has its own appeal).
I printed mine off on cardstock, which made them pretty durable.
Set up a basket with the a certificate for the Melt course and IOU for back rubs, a bottle of oil and a date night card to meet you in bed at 9pm for your first lesson.
The key to this is in execution. Try to straighten up the room before your date, Turn up the temperature a bit, and light a candle (safely, house fires are not sexy!) Make your bedroom a stress free haven from the rest of the world.
I was able to talk Melt into a special package for you guys!
This is such an exceptional value. You pay for the course once, and it’s yours for life! That’s literally tons of date nights together. We’ve been doing them for several months already and have no intention of stopping!
Until June 19th, 2016 you get the BONUS Foot Rub Videos FREE with each purchase of Melt. So he can return the favor and give you a delicious foot rub following Father’s Day to say thank you.
