  • Act I, Scene I: A couple at home on the couch on Friday night.

  • Girl: What do you want to do tonight?

  • Guy: Um, I don't know. What do you want to do?

  • Girl: Well, I DVR'd "American Idol" wanna watch that?

  • Guy: Ugh, not really. Can we watch boxing?

  • Girl: No way. Are you hungry?

  • Guy: That Thai takeout place is always good.

  • Girl: We ate that last Friday.

  • Guy: Oh.

  • And … scene.

  • Does this resemble your typical Friday night? Coax your dude into an at-home spa night ('cuz what guy doesn't like to be massaged?). Read on for some fun ways to spice up date night while getting gorgeous.

  • Do at-home facials together

  • Who says guys don’t like skin treatments every once in a while? Pull out your favorite mask or whip together a fresh one by mixing oatmeal, honey, and water. Or try one of these homemade beauty recipes.

  • Let him shave your legs

  • This might sound like razor burn waiting to happen, but a few bumps and nicks may be worth it for the fun and hilarious bonding experience. See which razor is the safest for this shave job.

  • Give each other a mani/pedi

  • Skip the nail salon. You probably have all the tools you need at home to do a sweet mani/pedi, including a pair of big, strong hands to help you. Peep this list of the 10 best nail polishes to find the sexiest color for him to paint on your nails (obviously skip the polish step for him).

  • Try a new physical activity

  • We’re not necessarily suggesting the gym for your activities since we’re sure you can find plenty to do at home. Just know that breaking a sweat causes your skin to glow, and bonus -- gives you a radiant look that is sure to spark a twinkle in his eye. See what outdoors-y, shared activities you should try.

  • Massage each other

  • Light up the candles and blast some Enya because it’s time for a rub down. Not only does massage help loosen stiff muscles, but it gets your blood flowing, which gives your skin a radiant glow. See which massage oil will help you feel blissed out.

    • I once gave an ex a pedicure and even applied some diamond-like jewels to his nails. Embarassingly he wore open toed sandals out that night so he could show his toes off to his family.
