Add mood lighting. Whether you string some decorative patio lights nearby the hot tub, or toss some waterproof floating LED light into your pool for an interesting effect, having great lighting (and mixing it up sometimes) will add to the fun of hot tubbing at night!

Remove mood lighting. Remove ALL lighting completely and hot tub in the blackness of night for a completely new experience.  (Check out “Outdoor Patio Lighting Ideas” for some beautiful options.)

Add music. Outdoor patio speakers or even just your phone playing some great tunes will elevate your hot tub experience. Or why not a floating speaker right in the tub beside you? Mix it up with some upbeat tunes, or mellow it out… whatever you’re in the mood for, music can take you there!

Read a book: Paperback, E-reader, Audiobook… all are great options for passing the time. Diving into a good story while relaxing and unwinding in the jacuzzi sounds like a fantastic combination! Just be sure to go with a waterproof option.

Plan ahead. Think through the small details like where to put your towels so they will stay dry and warm (that handy towel warmer box would be great, no?), or where your drinks will stay cold until you’re ready for them! Snow falling? A warm hat may actually make your winter hot tub experience more enjoyable.

Look them up ahead of time so you can introduce a few ideas and get to playing! Those waterproof playing cards (on the above list of hot tub accessories) might be a hit!

Snacks. Whether you use a floating snack board or have treats prepped nearby for when you feel like popping out and cooling down for a few minutes, some delicious snacks make time by a hot tub even better! There’s something about swimming that increases the appetite! So if you have an outdoor pizza oven, for example, get it prepped to go… and see how many people remember your hot tub night as the best night ever!!

Invite over friends who don’t have their own hot tub. There’s something about sharing an “old” experience with people who haven’t experience that same fun all that much… their joy and appreciation of hot tubbing will be contagious!  

Watch a movie. An Ipad, a portable DVD player, a fully set up outdoor theatre… enjoy! Just watch out that you aren’t sucked into the story so deeply that you overheat.
