FACT - we could all use some true relaxation right now. If you and your partner are ready to hit the road, opt for a couple’s treatment at Glade Spring Spa at Suncadia Resort. The spa merges outdoor sanctuaries and flowing creeks with rooms that bring the surrounding gardens and glades, forest and mountain views inside. Due to strict COVID-19 restrictions services are limited to massage, skin and nail services. Reservations are required and can be made here. A gift card for a future weekend getaway will also do the trick.
You can't go wrong with GOOD chocolate and supporting a woman-owned and Seattle-made business. Seattle Chocolate just launched their Chocolate is Love collection, a fresh collection of imaginative flavors, many delivered in delightful designs by Seattle artist Erin Wallace. Also, just a reminder that chocolate is linked to feelings of wellbeing because it simply tastes sooooo good. Yum! Prices vary based on product.
Because I know I personally aged at least 10 years in 2020, here's a gift for him this Valentine's Day that's really a gift for you both.

Sounds like you'll be doing your nightly skin care routine together from now on, yay!
