Everything you Need for the Perfect Pamper Night

As a parent, it’s easy to become stressed out and feel like you never get any time for yourself. However, looking after yourself and taking a little time out is incredibly important. It will help you to unwind, relax, sleep better, enjoy your children, and even fight off illness. A great way to do this is by having a pamper night, as you can do it once the kids are in bed and you don’t need to worry about childcare. Pamper night essentials will depend on what you like to do and your own tastes, but here are a few ideas to help you get started.

A Bubble Bath

A nice hot bubble bath is a fantastic way to chill out at the end of any day. Starting a pamper night with a bath also helps to get you in the mood for everything that might follow.


While you are in the bath, apply a cleansing face mask, shave your legs, and exfoliate your body. Having a cleansing session can help you to feel refreshed and revitalized. This can boost your mood and go a long way to making you feel like you again.


After your cleansing routine, you will need to moisturize. Exfoliation is great, but it can leave your skin dry. Find a gentle all-over body moisturizer in your favorite scent and apply as soon as you get out of the bath.


Candles can help set the mood for a perfect pamper night by creating a relaxing and soothing atmosphere. Book lover candles could help to transport you into your books shop if you want to spend some of your evenings reading a good book.


Your choice of entertainment will depend on what mood you are in and what kind of night you want to have. A good book is a great way to spend a quiet evening escaping real life. Music can bring back brilliant memories and make you smile. DVDs are fantastic for giving you an easy evening where you don’t need to think too much and video games are a brilliant way to let off some steam.

Food and Drink

The perfect pamper evening wouldn’t be complete without your favorite food and drinks. You could open a bottle of wine or treat yourself to a luxurious hot chocolate and order a take out before binging on your favorite treats.

Switch Off

One way to de-stress and make it a true evening of relaxation is switching off your phone and other devices or leave them in another room. Social media and the internet are brilliant. But, our reliance on them can lead to stress, pressure, and jealousy. Taking some time off can help you to appreciate what you’ve got instead of striving for the perfect, unrealistic lives you see online.
Try to make pamper nights a regular thing and make sure you don’t feel guilty about doing something that’s just for you. If it helps you relax and unwind it will also help you to be a better, more patient parent. So, enjoy yourself!
