1 Capture your beauty
He thinks you’re gorgeous so celebrate your curves in a sensual and lasting way by giving a photo or drawing of yourself in lingerie, a gorgeous dress, or even nude… Try Skye Holland for drawings and your local photographer for a shoot. I did this and can thoroughly recommend the whole experience (and no, that’s not me.)
2 Linger in your lingerie
Fancy knickers make us feel lovely. Indulge your fantasies with some new lingerie to make you look and feel even more gorgeous than usual.
3 Aphrodisiac fun with fondue
If you’re staying in to cook a romantic meal then set the scene with the warm glow of candle light. Have fun with a fondue, dipping fresh strawberries into melted chocolate, both are aphrodisiacs that will get you in the mood.
4 Make it personal
Give a keepsake with a personal message. Have a watch engraved, a key ring or a sign for your home. You could even have a naughty message embroidered onto a pair of silk shorts or satin knickers…
5 Go dancing
Dance is extremely sensual so book a sexy salsa or sensual Argentine tango class and get up close and personal. You’ll have fun together and will want to keep dancing into the night, and you do know what I mean.
6 S.W.A.L.K. (‘Sealed with a loving kiss’)
Love letters last a lifetime so say how you feel in writing. Quote a poet or writer if you can’t find the right words, or for a steamy night ahead – give a gift of written erotica.
7 And for the ultimate Valentine’s Day wedding
Here’s a beautiful idea: The Love Letter Box is an unusual time capsule that adds a romantic element to your ceremony. A written record of your individual hopes and dreams for the future to keep forever.
