Treat your boo to a relaxing bubble bath. Light some candles, set the mood with a serene playlist, and add some rose petals to the tub. Undress him or her slowly and take a sexy dip together — taking turns to give each other relaxing and sensual massages. Sweeten the deal by keeping a pretty set of fizzy bath bombs next to the tub to drop in just as you're getting in.
