7 Creative Valentine’s Day Gifts You’ll Both Love

This Valentine’s Day, why not choose a gift that treats you both? Whether you’re going for something naughty or nice, the gifts we’ve rounded up here are sure to bring you closer together:


A riddle: If a picture is worth a thousand words, then how many words is an album full of sexy snaps worth? Practice your best angles and then step in front of the lens with a boudoir photo shoot (just Google around for a studio or photographer in your area). Whether you’re getting the shots taken with your significant other or going solo, the pros will make sure you look picture perfect. Sure beats your iPhone camera—just keep this particular photo gallery off of Facebook.

Pure Romance 52 Weeks


Why limit that lovin’ feeling to February 14th? Pure Romance, true to name, gives you just that (and then some) for all 52 weeks of the year, with a year’s supply of scratch-off cards with naughty I.O.U. suggestions, coupons, role playing games, and more. Move over, Apples to Apples. There’s a new Game Night in town. [$15, Pure Romance]

Burning Candles


Nothing against lingerie, but as long as it’s all going to end up on the bedroom floor anyway, why not dress up the boudoir instead this Valentine’s Day? Pick up new silky-soft sheets, clear out the kids’ toys (and put yours within easy reach), add a few well-placed candles…and the rest will take care of itself.

Sealed with a Kiss


Everyone loves getting a love note. A lust note? Even better. This year, put pen to paper for a Valentine’s Day card sure to make your significant other blush. Get some help finding the right words by taking an erotica writing workshop together—or get inspired with a book of stories. Irresistible: Erotic Romance for Couples, edited by renowned sexuality and relationships writer Rachel Kramer Bussel, hits shelves on February 14th.

Pure Romance Vanilla Bondage


“Vanilla” may not usually be a word you associate with fireworks in the bedroom, but when it comes to this playful set of silky ties and a blindfold—perfect for first-timers feeling experimental—vanilla never looked so good. After all, a fancy Valentine’s Day dinner calls for a dessert that tantalizes the senses. [Pure Romance, $13]

couple jumping


Whether absence makes the heart grow fonder is up for debate…but one thing is for sure: adrenaline makes the heart grow fonder. Studies have shown that an exciting situation can make a couple more attracted to each other. One idea? Grab your sweetie’s hand and hold on tight at a trapeze class. Who knows, you may just discover a new fun and flexible side to your partner. Next up: Cirque du Soleil! [$100 for two, Xperience Days]

Jimmyjane Candle Sampler


Why go out when you can stay in for a little candlelit massage therapy? This sampler box of Jimmyjane’s Afterglow massage oil candles beats chocolate any day of the week, if you ask us. Have your pick of aphrodisiac scents—pink lotus, dark vanilla, and bourbon, to name a few—and take your time taking turns. [Jimmyjane, $50]

I did just this for my boyfreind-- I hired a professional photographer [SCARY ENOUGH!]-- but actually had fun taking some "sexy" pics--and then having them made into a calendar for him-- Plus, I filled the calendar w/ some dates---and took him away for a few days to Orlando... where we stayed at "The Sweet Escape House"-- a VERY romantic place w/ a chocolate and candy theme--so I could give him his own "giant box of chocolates" ! That place made it even more special [sweet escape house, orlando]
