We’re talking major hints, because gosh knows, he could probably use all the help he can get! Here are several sweet (and sexy) ideas we bet haven’t even crossed your mind yet.

Whether he chooses your anniversary date or a quote that only the two of you will know the meaning of, this is one Valentine’s gift you’ll always wear near and dear to your heart.

LUSH Do Knot Disturb gift
Indulge your senses (and his!) with this “knotty” little beauty set for the bath. It includes four flirtatious, skin nourishing products: the Sex Bomb Bath Bomb, French Kiss Bubble Bar, jasmine-infused Lust Soap and our favorite, the edible Soft Coeur Massage Bar which can be broken in half to reveal a yummy chocolate center. He’ll enjoy this seductive present just as much as you will — we guarantee it!
Shades of Grey kit
Move over Anastasia Steele, there’s a new goddess in town! If you devoured the books in days and simply can’t wait for the movie to come out, just wait until your sweetie shows up with this seductive Shades of Grey kit in hand. In it, you’ll find a Sex & Mischief Grey Tie (for the “Christian” in your life, of course), a Satin Blindfold, a Masquerade Mask, Riding Crop, Ben-Wa Balls and Metal Adjustable Handcuffs to explore your own secret fantasies.

They say that a picture is worth a thousand words, so this Valentine’s Day, why not celebrate your body and the beautiful woman you’ve become (both inside and out) with a tasteful boudoir shoot courtesy of professional photographers Marisa Gallegos and Jennifer Hoffman of Esme & Eve Los Angeles? There’s no way your man will object to that gift!
Private individual shoots begin at $2500 and include a consultation, all hair, makeup and styling, a fully customized five to six hour session with two photographers, several different looks and 10 matted prints of the client’s choosing presented in a handmade Japanese silk box. Ooh la la.
