You and your significant other are looking at an empty nest this Thanksgiving day. Whether your children are away at school, spending the holiday with their spouse or significant other or if you’re just on your own, why not pamper yourself and start a new Thanksgiving holiday spa tradition?

Whether you live in an area of the country where it is still warm into the afternoon and evening or if you live in an area of the country that has already seen frost and perhaps even snow, spending time in a spa warms you up. If you have a towel warmer or a warmer for your coziest, most luxurious bathrobes, you won’t even notice the cold air because you’ll be slipping off the robe or warm towel and slipping into the depths of the hot tub or spa and you’ll warm right up.

A Thanksgiving Holiday Spa Tradition

Light some orange or even pumpkin-scented candles to add a festive scent to the spa area. There is nothing more appealing than the scent of cinnamon, pumpkin, vanilla or a combination of the scents.

Decorate the area with pumpkins, fir boughs, leaf garland, pine cones or even cut out turkey decorations. Be festive and whimsical and make the most of the area.

Put on some of your favorite holiday music. Whether you’re in the mood for Christmas tunes or whether you’re looking for some relaxing classical music to set the mood of the relaxing soak in the hot tub, choose your favorite then add to the music.

Open a bottle of champagne or your favorite wine, mead or even a festive pumpkin-flavored ale and set that up near the hot tub so you can grab an adult beverage without having to leave the comfort of the hot tub.

When it comes to dinner, you can either cook an entire traditional Thanksgiving feast for you and your significant other or why not start a new tradition and order take out from your favorite restaurant or visit a grocery store that specializes in take-out dinners and can supply you the fixings for an entire Thanksgiving meal. All you’ll have to do it plate it and enjoy! Don’t forget the desserts!

Start a new empty nest Thanksgiving tradition with your loved one and gather the rest of your family together for a traditional Thanksgiving dinner in the days after Thanksgiving. You’ll be making brand new memories and you just might relieve the stress everyone feels from having to try and divide their time between several homes.
