While many of the Christmas festivities occur inside the house, the real magic of the holiday season happens outdoors. The fresh air renews your holiday-frazzled mind while the activity recharges your body. There’s something for the entire family to do…
There’s a day for everyone — even those who love to soak in a bubble bath. America!
It’s a time to forget all your chores and not feel guilty about anything: National Bubble Bath Day is January 8. Request the day off work, turn off your phone and send your kids to the in-laws. Optional: spouse?
Here are some ways to treat yourself on this occasion, and because it is right after a major holiday we kept it inexpensive.
Buying bubble bath is half the battle. Here are some options, depending on your mood :

It is possible to enjoy a luxurious bubble bath without spending a lot. Buy trial size. One to try is Kai Bathing Bubble (2 ounces)
Not everyone has a tub to relax in. Check out Groupon to see if there are any special spa packages in your location. Sometimes, if you buy a gift card at a spa, they throw in an extra massage, or even a package full of their own products. Most hotels that have a spa offer discounts on a package with the purchase of a room, but of course that can get pretty expensive.
For the best spa experience for your money plan ahead, get the right products, soft music, mood lighting and a great book and just cuddle up at home. With all the money you will be saving, you can splurge on a good bottle of wine.
